Lip Care FAQs

How can I take care of my lips?

Whether it's makeup, the weather or even ageing our lips go through a lot in our lifetime. That's why it's important to take care of them daily, especially if you suffer from dry, cracked or bleeding lips. To keep them healthy and smooth, you can add a lip scrub in your lip care routine. This is perfect for removing dead skin cells, while lip balms, lip butters, lip oils and lip treatments keep them soft, moisturised and oh-so-kissable.

Following a healthy diet with plenty of vitamins and nutrients, staying hydrated with lots of water and removing makeup properly are also great ways to ensure your skin and lips remain healthy, as well as lip balms with SPF.

What are the best lip care products?

At Cosmetify, we have huge array of nourishing, hydrating and protective lip care products for you to peruse. From tinted lip balms to lip treatments and lip oils to lip scrubs, there's a product to suit every type of routine. Lip salves are perfect for everyday top ups, while conditioning treatments help soothe any dryness or irritations.

Simply refine your search using our handy drop-down filters, such as skin benefit, SPF, ingredient preference, format and brand. With plenty to choose from, discover must-have products from leading brands like Nuxe, REN, Florence by Mills, Mac and Kiehl's. You can also refine your search to find the best cruelty-free and vegan-friendly solutions for your lip care collection.

What can I put on my lips at night?

Your skin can lose moisture throughout the night, that's why it's crucial to heal, protect and nourish your lips with the perfect lip treatment. Start by cleaning your lips with makeup remover to get rid of any lipstick or impurities. Then exfoliate your pout with a lip scrub to remove any dead skin cells or dry patches. Rinse this off with lukewarm water and pat dry. To finish your lip care, apply a moisturising treatment, whether it's a lip mask, lip oil or lip balm.

This boost of hydration nourishes your lips as you sleep, so in the morning you're left with a soft, supple pout. Browse our collection to find the best overnight lip care products for your evening routine.
