Beauty & Beyond: A Little Lip Service

lips Collage

I don't know if it's all the smooching I did for the love-centric holiday (love you, honey) or if it's cold weather lip licking that's dehydrating my kisser. Scaly pouts are anything but kissable, so I have to do something about it. For fear of being a frog my prince kisses, I've rounded up a few lip treats that will help soften my winter lips. After using these, when you give someone a little lip, it's actually a good thing.

From June Jacobs (which I'm always so proud to say is my Delta Gamma sorority sister's family's line) comes the Lip Kit, replete with pout-perfecting items that reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve lip contour in a three-step process. You start with the Lip Scrub, applying it in a circular motion to slough off flakes. Then it's the Lip Masque (my favorite), a three-minute drying masque. Sure, with the bright white lips you're channeling the mod '60s, but it's worth it. Then you hydrate with Lip Renewal.

The formulas boast the top hydration ingredients out there--Sunflower Seed Extract from Mexico, Avocado Oil, Algae Extract, Wheat Protein, Shea Butter from an African shea-karite tree, Peach Kernel Oil and Cocoa Seed Butter from South America. And consider this a food fight against the environment--white, red and green tea extracts and goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts help neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat premature aging.

The Lip Kit is available for $60 at

Is a Vizsla a Good Dog for Your Family?

Long before COVID arrived, our family decided we were ready for a dog. I grew up with dogs and knew my girls would gain a lot from the experience of owning a pet. Vizslas are wonderful and gorgeous dogs that require a ton of exercise and lot of time. Like me, you might wonder, more

How to Get Kids to Ski for Free in Utah

I know skiing with kids can be expensive. That's why I'm always looking for an angle to save myself and my readers some money. My goal? Get us all out on the slopes more with the kiddos without having to tap into our retirement accounts. Sure, you can pack lunches and get used more

bliss' fabulips foaming lip cleanser is the first-of-its-kind cleanser. That's right. I'm asking you to wash your lips out with "soap." If you think about it, it makes sense...what with all the lipstick and food that your lips see all day. This foaming formula lifts impurities and lip color off with effervescent bubbles rich in cocoa and shea butters and rice bran extract. It leaves lips clean, healthy, incredibly refreshed and perfectly prepped.

Fabulips cleanser is available for $18 at

Rodan + Fields' ANTI-AGE Lip Renewing Serum offers serious skincare for delicate lips. Each peptide and antioxidant-rich capsule (one at a time, please) helps lips retain natural moisturizing factors, smooths texture and reduces wrinkles. There's quite a bit in each capsule, so I actually use any leftovers in the corners of my eyes to hydrate that delicate area too. And a tip from my lips to your ears, this isn't really a daytime thing because of the heavy emolient factor. Use it at night.

The serum is available for $53 for 60 capsules at
