Kari Gran is known for her line of clean skincare products and cosmetics. One of her signature items is Lip Whip, a creamy, hydrating, beeswax-based balm that actually heals dry lips instead of just masking the symptoms. Lip Whip is available as a colorless balm, and in a variety of shades ranging from nude to bold. And now, for the holidays, it’s partnered with several other products in limited-edition gift sets. The one I’m most excited about is the Lip Whip Perfector and Tinted Lip Whip Duo ($38), a pair that heals chapped lips and preps them for the tinted balm.
This package arrived on my doorstep at the best possible time. Since the temps dipped here in Philly, my lips have been a hot mess: chapped, flaking, cracked, bleeding–not cute. The first thing I reached for was the Perfector, to try to get my lips in decent shape. This didn’t disappoint. It’s a sugar scrub that you can use as a quick treatment or let it sit on lips a little longer and use it as a mask for extra hydration. I gently rubbed this on to buff away the flaky skin of my chapped lips, then left it on for five minutes for an extra dose of moisture. When I wiped it off with a clean tissue, it completely sloughed away all the gross dead skin on my lips; I swear, my lips looked brand new after just one application.
The Lip Whip in this set is a barely-there blush pink balm that looks like your lips, but better. The color is beautifully sheer, especially if you like a nude or pale pink lip. The formula is incredibly hydrating without being sticky or feeling greasy. Both products are peppermint-scented, so they feel fresh, too.
If you’re struggling with dry lips this winter, this is a great solution. It’s also the cutest package to leave under the tree, complete with a pretty sleeve on which you can write the recipient’s name!
