I suffer from dry cracked/peeling lips chronically. I thought I had tried everything, from balms, butters, smoothers, scrubs, baby toothbrushes..The list goes on and on. I had been eyeing this little tool, for quite the minute. After an expensive, last ditch effort failed unceremoniously. I decided it probably wouldn't work, like everything else, so I'd wait first the next time it was on sale. When it was about 4 bucks, I ordered it, with a few other on sale goodies. What did I have to lose?? Nothing that's what, but possibly a bunch of rough, dry places on my lips.
When it came un, I was not impressed at first glance. But as soon As I felt the silicone "bristles" I was intrigued, to say the least. Then I popped it on, coated my lips in Mario Badescu Lip Balm, and started the massage. It felt incredible. I was sure it was working..but even if it did nothing for the cracked/peeling skin on my lips...I would still love it for the amazing invigorating effect it has on the lips. However, That was not the case. My lips were smoother. Almost all the loose skin was gone, What wasn't gone was vastly diminished. But with every use the get nicer and nicer. They are Plumped, deeper color, and have less lines on and around the lips too. My lips look like the did in my teens. Not to mention, my makeup good so much much better. Lipsticks, glosses, tints they looks so good, and stay put longer too. When you add the fact that I am saving money in product because I use so much less. I use fewer products, less of those products, less coats, reapplication.
Overall A necessary tool in any makeup lover's arsenal to get your best lips now!
I was getting tired of the mess my lip scrub made every time I used it and I was wondering if this tool would be useful in making the process easier. Well, it did and it didn't at the same time,... I loved how it aided my scrub in exfoliating the dead skin off of my lips, the silicone bristles were gentle but effective. My biggest issue was the fact that this is advertised as easy to clean, and I did not find that to be the case. The granules of the lip scrub became somewhat embedded in the bristles of the tool and the oily aspect of the scrub made them impossible to wash out easily. It took me several minutes to get it completely clean... Was this worth the ease of the actual scrubbing process? Maybe,.... I don't know that I would've purchased this had it not been on sale. But since it was and I don't want to return it, I'll keep it and use it for my lip scrubs and simply put up with the cleaning process afterwards. It still makes less of a mess than using my lip scrubs without the tool.

It's honestly pretty hard to clean and get any lip products out of it and also water gets in and it slips off but it does help exfoliate with a lip scrub wouldnt buy again though.

I used it for the first time this morning. I enjoyed using it. I did find it hard to pull off my finger because of the scrub. Might do better to make a stiff handle and keep the silicone bristles/nubs.

gently scrubbed split my lips and my lips were not dry or cracked. I used oil and

it is quite a gentle exfoliator but I think that can be a plus if that is what you are looking for; some products are too harsh. it is good especially coupled with a lip scrub. the only "con" I really have is that I wish it had a case or something for travel and just regular storage.

only works if my chapped lips are moist like the dead skin is softened
Alaya from Fort Worth
Works good but I think it should be cheaper like $2 nothing special about it
Em from California
It does what it claims to do but it just doesn't make a difference with how my lips look and feel. However I do like the fact that it's actually quite a bit more convenient for me as someone who likes to use sugar scrubs it definitely makes the process a lot less messy .

Did absolutely nothing
A $.99 spare toothbrush works a million times better

I was very surprised at how well this worked. I didn't think it would work well but trusted the reviews and purchased. Very glad I purchased!

This little tool was more of a 'I need my basket to be $50 to qualify for a free gift so I'll add this cheap thing' purchase, but I am so glad I bought it. It literally has saved my dry lips. I use it when my lips start getting crusty. I use it with a little bit of water. It sloughs off every little piece of dry skin and reveals fresh soft lips! It's not abrasive at all, so it's easy to use if your lips are really painfully chapped.

Love this thing!

I have been using this for a while. It's gentle. I use this with a lip scrub and it works so good. I really think you need to use some kind of scrub/oil/scrub with this. I have used this on its own but it feels kinda dry that way. I use it everyday in the morning and lips are soft and smooth all day. Get this. You need it. You want it.

This works great! I use chapstick all the time but still get the flaky lips. I just use this in the shower every day and it does the trick! I also love that it's reusable instead of buying new lip scrub products all the time!
haryn from texas
If you already take care of your lips & have chapstick in every bag you own this probably wouldn't be the product for you. I tried it by itself, with the elf lip exfoliator, with just coconut oil, and lastly with coconut oil & sugar as a natural exfoliant and it didn't help at all.
chas from arlington
like the title, it does its job and it's easy cleaning but I feel like you gotta really get in between the bristles. also the finger hole is not very comfortable and even I have small fingers.
Annie from Washington DC
It's really work on chapped lips.
gen from texas
My lips needed an exfoliating. This works great!!!
Dani from Virginia
It's okay but nothing to rave about. I have used it alone and with a lip scrub. I haven't noticed a difference. I have chronic dry lips and I try everything. I guess I'll keep looking for something to help me with the dry skin.
Megan from Albuquerque
Definitely worth buying,I have a few others and this one is my favorite,especially with using lip scrub and a mask after wards
Jacky from Maine
It's simply not working. No matter how soft it is, it can't get the job done. Threw it to the trash bin after a couple of trials. Don't waste your money!
Linzee from .
this is nice. it's soft so it doesn't ruin your lips. it doesn't take away all the flaky skin, but it does remove some. don't scrub too hard and don't use the same motion or your lips will go numb lol use a good lip mask after and the next day your lips will look and feel so much better
Hannah Mary from Arizona
I've never been a big fan of traditional lip scrubs for some reason and have always been looking for an alternative. My lips peel when they are dry and I pick at them without noticing it and cause them to bleed occasionally and it's not the cutest look. Thank goodness I found this little guy! My lips have never looked better. I use it every morning as the last step of my skincare routine, usually with a lip oil or I just lick my lips if I'm feeling lazy. I wish I had bought it sooner!
Gianna from California
Really convenient I can carry it anywhere. I use it in the shower to remove dead skin off my lips and it stays on my finger. recommend!!
