Our favorite chapped lip treatment is the Mamonde Lip Sleeping Mask in Plum Blossom. Find out what sets it apart below. Hint: it contains an AHA you know and likely love!
Fall is coming up fast, which means it’s time to start thinking about swapping out your skin care routine to help prepare your skin for the long winter months ahead. For me, it also means focusing my attention on those areas of my skin that I know will get dry and flaky due to the drier months, like my limbs and my lips.
As I detailed back in the thick of the cold weather season last year, I struggled to find a lip balm that worked, so I know I will need to do more thorough research this year so that my lips don’t suffer from serious dehydration.
In general, when you need to hydrate or rehab dry skin, it’s most effective to apply moisturizer on a smooth canvas, hence why exfoliating is such an important step in one’s routine. For the lips, this means using a lip scrub, but lip scrubs can be harsh on the delicate area and also require adding yet another product into your regimen.
All this is to say that when a sample of the Mamonde Lip Mask, a multitasking balm that contains the chemical exfoliant glycolic acid, came across my desk, I knew my chapped lips were about to be transformed.
The formula features plum blossom extract to soothe, shea and muru muru butter to moisturize, and then just enough glycolic acid to smooth lips without irritating them. I have sensitive skin and I can attest that I haven’t experienced any tingling or sensitivity post-application.
After using the mask just one night, I woke up to noticeably softer and hydrated lips. Even the natural color looked pinker and less dull than usual. I still needed to apply lip balm in the morning, but I didn’t have to reapply as much throughout the day that followed.
I find the product to be similar to the popular (and Klog team favorite) Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. However, if your lips get chapped easily and you don’t love using physical lip scrubs, I definitely recommend giving the Mamonde formula a try.
Soko Glam used to offer the full-size lip sleeping mask only as part of an exclusive four-piece set that includes some of the brand’s best sellers, but they now curate the lip mask on its own! Shop it down below.
