Wax dries out our lips, and when you make the switch from traditional lipstick or lipgloss there can be a bit of an exfoliation process for some. During this time your lips will shed that waxy buildup. If you experience exfoliation occurring in the very beginning it is helpful to brush your lips with a tooth brush or use a sugar scrub to speed up the process. Applying LipSense Glossy Gloss by itself in the evenings is the best option as it is infused with shea butter, vitamin E, and other natural ingredients. In a pinch you can also use coconut oil on your lips as this is another natural option to aide in bringing healthy moisture back to your lips, but steer clear of wax based moisture. LipSense Glosses are also going to infuse a natural moisture back to your lips with continuous wear due to the natural extracts contained in them. So keep applying and you will have the healthiest, smudge-free, kissable pout of your life!
