Chapped lips are a girl’s everyday problems, while chapped lips are normal, it’s not okay for most women to be caught with chapped lips, especially for an important night out such as a date or an important meeting. To prevent chapped lips, you can maintain healthy lips through the use of lip exfoliators; these remove dead skin cells to keep those lips of yours luscious and beautiful. I’ve rounded up a set of the best lip exfoliators, so you won’t have to look far in choosing your lip exfoliator.
Diva Stuff Cake Batter Lip Scrubbie
Cake batter is yummy, and as a child, I’ve grown up eating clumps of cake batter or cookie dough left on mom’s spatula after putting the batch in the oven. Little did you know that cake batter has exfoliating properties? Diva Stuff used that to make an edible lip scrub so your lips can stay healthy the yummy way.
The idea is simple; it’s like cake batter with tasty bits of fine particles such as sugar for the exfoliating scrub effect. The Cake Batter Lip Scrubbie has many benefits for your lip exfoliating needs, aside from scrubbing away those dead skin cells on your lips that lead to chapped lips, it also moisturizes the lips to make it look plump and fresh. Also, Diva Stuff has added ingredients in their Cake Batter Lip Scrubbie to protect your lips and leave a glossy layer, so your lip scrub also doubles as lip gloss.
To apply cake batter is as easy as applying lipstick, simply dip your finger and get a small amount of cake batter on your fingertip and just gently spread it and massage it on your lips. Cake Batter comes in several delicious flavors such as original cake batter, the hint of lemon after a martini, plus other unique flavors that can tantalize your taste buds.
Treat Jumbo Lip Scrub Marshmallow Cream
Coming in a more traditional package than Cake Batter, Treat’s Marshmallow Cream Jumbo Lip Scrub is as easy to apply as putting on lipstick. Forget about dipping your finger into a small jar of cream, just put the tip of the lip scrub stick on your lips and apply it on with a gentle scrubbing motion. The Jumbo Lip Scrub does not only exfoliate your lips but also moisturize it for extended periods time make it look and feel fresh and luscious.

E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator
The E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator is one of the more traditional-looking packages in this list, and it is also the cheapest on this list. It’s an elegant way to get rid of chapped lips.
It arrives in a black casing that resembles ordinary lipstick, and you twist it open to make the exfoliator extend. The exfoliator looks like a stick of lipstick, but instead of a smooth column of color, you have a rough stick of organic ingredients that’s going to condition your lips and help in getting rid of those dry and dead skin cells that lead to chapped lips. The main features of the product include the removal of dry skin and prevent chapped lips thanks to its exfoliating and conditioning properties. The stick also contains nourishing components such as Vitamin E, Shea butter, avocado, grape, and jojoba oils that make the lips healthy and looking beautiful while protecting it from damage caused by the sun or pollution.

For its low price tag, you get four 0.3 ounce tubs of Beauty Treats Lip Scrub which has four different flavors: Almond Crème, Wild Apple, Vanilla Bean, and Dark Cherry. Having said that the E.L.F.

This lip scrub comes in cream form and is stored in little tubs and doesn’t offer the same convenience of E.L.F. or Treat’s offerings. You have to do the manual job of dipping your finger in the cream and rubbing the cream on your lips for the exfoliating motion. And unlike the edible creams, you have to wash or wipe it off after application It’s a minor inconvenience, but hey, you get four flavors in one pack that’s already at a decent price.

Hanalei Beauty Company Maui Sugar Lip Scrub WithKukui Nut Oil
The second item on the list, next to the Beauty For Real Lip Revival Exfoliating + Hydrating Lip Scrub, only beat by its lower price point, the Maui Sugar Lip Scrub receives mostly positive reviews if not for its rather high price tag. But price differences aside, this product shines in its unique way. Advertised as a product that’s made with Hawaiian ingredients you can expect to have a refreshing tropical experience with the application of this fantastic product.

Beauty products work for the most part but it’s always best to be careful of what you use, some products may not jive with your skin type and instead of delivering benefits, will lead to adverse effects. To prevent such circumstances, you can opt for a testing to see if it works well for you.
Aside from making sure a product works best for you, you have to consider the relationship of the potency of the product for the price you’re paying; since you’re only applying a small amount on your lips and gently massaging it on, the package size is negligible. In any case, if a particular item is not very efficient and costs more than what you’d usually shell out, steer clear of those products immediately. Also if you’re the type that prefers the convenience of having an emergency lip exfoliator, then you can opt for a home cream and a solution of urgency such as E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator on the go.
