PR Sample - How do you take care of your lips? I've always used a lip scrub (exfoliation) and lip balm (moisture). Murad's Soothing Skin and Lip Care claims it does BOTH (exfoliate w/BHAs & moisturize w/Lanolin & Vitamin E) in one process. This product mimics the consistency of petroleum jelly. It's very thick. It's very rich. It has a clinical scent. When you apply it, your lips will initially feel very moisturized. In as little as an hour, the exfoliation process starts! Any dead skin you have, gently starts to shed (it gets gummy). So don't use this in public, in front of company or if you plan on having a romantic evening. Gummy, shedding lips are not sexy! LOL I used this twice and keep in mind I exfoliate my lips nearly every other day. I still had shedding. The pictures I took below are after the SECOND time I used it. I seriously thought this was just lip gloss at first and wasn't aware of the exfoliation part (see ALWAYS READ LOL). My lips felt both soft and smooth afterwards, but they didn't feel as moisturized as I expected. They weren't dry, but I felt I needed to apply lip balm on my lips (see pictures below). I give this product a Bittersweet rating, because of the lack of moisture achieved after the entire process (Murad does have a rapid collagen infusion for lips) and the fact it wouldn't be wise to wear this in front of people. I mean, who wants to look at someone with shedding lips? This product works (except for adding moisture), but it's what you have to go through! Do you know what I mean? I plan to continue exfoliating my lips while bathing and applying lip balm afterwards. I'm just too vain to go through all of this. LOL Those are my thoughts!
