The delicate skin of the lips is prone to getting easily damaged by external environmental factors such as the wind, extreme heat, dust and pollution. Even something as simple and common as biting and licking the lips constantly can lead to dry, cracked lips and fine lines in no time. And when this happens, the dryness sensation can be really uncomfortable, not to mention that no makeup looks good on chapped lips.
To keep the lips in good condition whatever the season might be, lip care products are recommended. The lip balm is our first go-to solution. However, in many cases, there are other, much better-suited options such as lip polish, lip mask and lip treatments, which may require you to leave them on your lips overnight.
The lip polish or lip scrub can help you get rid of dead skin cells at the level of the lips and gently exfoliate the lips to prepare them for lipstick or a lip balm. The lip mask is ideal during the colder months of the year to increase the level of hydration. Other types of lip treatments can be great to heal cracked lips.

What we like about the lip drops is that they are easy to carry around and you can apply them over your favorite lipstick. Usually, the lip treatments are applied before the lipstick and they often make the lipstick less durable. This is not the case here. The lip drops enhance the effects of the lipstick and make the lips glossier and plumper.

4. Buff + Shine Lip Therapy by Ajara
The problem with a lips gloss or lip balm is that they don’t deliver the promised results, not unless the skin on the lips is ready and already perfect. This means that if you have flaky skin on the lips or the skin is overly dry, you can forget about getting kissable lips with just a lip gloss. But what if you’d have a 2-in-1 lip care product that would both prepare the lips and make them glossy and shiny?
The good news is that the people at Ajara already thought of this so now we can enjoy the Buff + Shine Lip Therapy. In just a few words, is a complete make over for your dry, sensitive, dull-looking lips!
The scrub perfects and polishes the surface of the lips and makes the shine effect delivered by the gloss even more impressive. And it’s so good that you have all the benefits in just one, very easy to use, product! Just apply the product and rub the lips together until the product disappears, then apply the gloss. Also, you can apply it to your lips overnight, and wake up with great looking pair in the morning
