4 Products for Softer Lips


It's taken me about 10 years to finally realise that a certain petroleum jelly really doesn't do much for me! I've moved away from greasy products that sit on top of your lips to getting a decent lip care routine in place and these are 4 products guaranteed to give you softer lips.


I have a pretty un-seasonal Santa colour-flavoured Lush scrub, however it just goes to show how long these last! It can get a little messy but before bed I give my lips a firm but gentle scrub with this sugar-based formula over the sink. It does a really great job of removing dead skin from the surface of my lips without being too harsh.


Essentially a miracle product but one that's far too white and creamy to wear during the day. So after I use the Lush lip scrub (around once a week) I apply a good layer of this overnight and my in the morning my lips are unbelievably soft.


For in-between more intensive treatments and to keep moisture-levels up I use the Dr. Pawpaw balm. It has a non-greasy, clear formula that sits comfortably on the lips (though no product should be this hard to squeeze out of the tube!) You can easily wear this underneath lipstick (without ruining the finish) and this is my go-to for the daytime. This is a multi-purpose balm but I do find it works best on my lips. It's a little rich for me to use all over my face however I've applied it overnight to dry patches around my nose and it worked really nicely at leaving these areas soft and supple by the time I woke up the next morning.


For a super-casual day I often just throw on one of my Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments for a combined subtle lip colour and some nourishment for my lips. I find this formula kind of like a stick version of the Dr. Pawpaw, as it feels so similar on the lips. Vice versa, if these are a little outside your price-range or they're too tricky to get hold of, definitely try the Dr. Pawpaw (which I've spotted in Boots stores). You can see my full review and swatches of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments here.

    1. I've recently been using the EOS mint lip balm that I used to not like, but maybe because it's the summer and my lips aren't very dry, it's been working really well!

  6. I swear by Lush's Lip Scrub (I have mine in the bubblegum flavour) as it's so gentle but does a great job at removing any dry skin x

  7. Great picks! I love Lush lip scrubs so much that I have 3 of them, although my santa one has gone pretty hard and the flavouring has become really watery which is strange! The Dr Paw Paw balm is fab although it is definitely super hard to dispense, I had to pierce mine with a pen at first!! The Malin and Goetz lip balm is my favourite for creating soft lips, the formula is amazing! x

  9. PawPaw is such a great product.
    I can't use the Lush Scrub because the oil in it breaks me out something fierce!

  12. I love the idea of the Lush Lip Scrub although mine doesn't all stick together anymore so it's really difficult to use. Dr PawPaw sounds so nice!

  14. I've been meaning to try a lip scrub, the Lush one sounds fab (I've always had a massive crush on their products!). Do you reckon it's worth the purchase? I'm torn between the Lush one and the revered Sara Happ one! Xx

  19. I really love the Fresh lip balm though it is so pricey. Right now I'm using the Bobbi Balm lip balm (which is a little petroleum like but so good) as well as the Yu-Be lip balm which is so nourishing and tingly in a nice way on the lips.

  22. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments are soo lovely, and they leave lips feeling so incredibly soft. I also love using Nuxe Reve de Miel at night, it's so moisturizing and I can still feel the product the next morning - and not in a bad way. Love how all of your picks are so affordable :)

  27. My go-to product to repair my lips and one I would recommend highly is the Lanolips 101 Ointment Balm. It's almost pure lanolin (the natural oil in sheep wool!) and is SO moisturising. I think it's a really underrated beauty product. However, the Dr PawPaw balm sounds quite similar so it looks like you're covered at the moment! Also, thanks for reminding me to pick up a new lip scrub next time I'm in Lush :)

  28. I love the Lush lip scrub and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment! I haven't used the Lush lip scrub in a long time though and I usually only take the Fresh lip balm with me when I'm going somewhere.
    Usually I use a really thick cream called Bepanthen from the pharmacy. It's really good if your lips are chapped and you can use it on your skin too :)x
