We all have a skincare routine, so it makes total sense that you would also have a lip care routine, right?
I’ve been using Chapstick ever since I was a kid. The brand has actually been an expert in lips for more than 125 years (crazy, right?!), and just like how I have evolved over the years, so have they (they have more than just Cherry Chapstick nowadays).
Brand new to the brand in Canada is their Total Hydration collection – an advanced skincare line just for lips! The whole line is made using premium botanical ingredients to nourish and enhance your lips including botanical oils and Vitamins C and E and allows you to mix and match products to create the perfect lip care routine for you.
The Chapstick Total Hydration collection consists of five different products – a lip scrub, lip oil, and three lip balms that were created to work together and separately to get rid of dried, cracked lips and help to keep your lips in tip-top shape.
I highly recommend starting your Chapstick Total Hydration routine with the Chapstick Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub, which is available in two flavours, Peppermint and Sugar Plum. This scrub is enriched with naturally sourced ingredients, including shea butter, coconut oil, sugar crystals, and vitamin E to exfoliate and smooth lips prior to your next steps.
I love using this scrub first to get rid of any dead skin on my lips and then will go in with either one of the lip balms or the lip oil to leave my lips feeling nourished and moisturized. This scrub is also great for your lips prior to applying lipstick since it leaves them nice and smooth.
Next up, I love to grab the Chapstick Total Hydration Vitamin Enriched Lip Oil. This oil is also available in two flavours (Sweet Nectar and Peach Tea) and is a vitamin-enriched lip oil that is formulated with vitamin C, E, and Omegas 3-6-9 to replenish and moisturize. It feels super lightweight on the lips and its non-sticky formula glides on for a comfortable wear. It also leaves behind a slight sheen, so it works wonders as a gloss as well if you want to layer it on top of one of your favourite lipsticks.
Chapstick also has three different types of balms to choose from in the Total Hydration line, including Moisture + Tint, 3-in-1, and Natural Moisture.
The Chapstick Total Hydration Moisture + Tint is a tinted lip balm available in three shades (Merlot, Rose Petal, and Coral Blush) and is also enriched with Omega 3-6-9 rich oils and shea butter to hydrate lips and give them a hint of colour. I love using this product when I’m out and about (I typically reach for Rose Petal since it’s a pretty pale pink) and want a hint of colour, but don’t want to wear a lipstick. It also pairs well for beach or pool days, when I’m wearing CC cream or a tinted moisturizer and some mascara.
For really dry lips, I love using the Chapstick Total Hydration 3-in-1 Lip Balm, which is available in two scents (Coconut and Original). The 3-in-1 lip balm provides up to eight hours of moisture for healthy and smooth lips. The biggest difference in this formula is that it’s aimed to moisturize, renew, and protect the lips. The botanical moisturizing complex hydrates the lips, whereas the age-defying formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Finally, this balm helps to improve damaged appearance of lips and renew the moisture barrier. I love using this one before bed since it provides benefits to my lips all night long.
The last balm is the Chapstick Total Hydration Natural Moisture formula, which is available in Mint, Citrus, and Vanilla. This particular formula contains 100 per cent naturally sourced avocado oil, coconut oil, and shea butter to help replenish the lips moisture barrier. This lip balm is the ultimate product for extremely chapped lips and those needing a little extra TLC.
Depending on how I’m feeling that day, I love to mix and match these different products to create my own custom lip routine. I also want to note that all Chapstick Total Hydration products contain no parabens or synthetic preservatives.
I’ve said it on more than one occasion on this blog that if I were to pick one beauty product to take with me to a desert island, it would be lip balm. I’m the kind of person that always has to have a lip balm on me since my lips get so dry so fast. With so many options to choose from, I love how Chapstick has created an advanced skincare routine for my lips.
Give your lips some love and definitely check out the Chapstick Total Hydration collection, which is available exclusively at Walmart Canada, both in-store and online. I would love to hear what’s included in your lip care regime and how this line has helped you step up your beauty routine.
