One area on the face that many people do not think of as showing age is the lips.   Our lips thin as we age, they show fine lines, especially if you smoke, and they lose that general fullness we had in our youth.   Keeping your lips moist is important, but there are several lip products I like from general moisturizers to treatments that help keep the lips smooth and youthful looking.

1.  Korres Lip Butters – typically I’m not one for pots of any lip product, but I’m willing to put that ick factor aside and use these Lip Butters.   They make your lips feel so yummy and soft, come in a few select shades and a clear.  They are made with natural products like shea butter and rice wax for holding in the moisture to keep your lips super soft.  $10

2.  Erno Laszlo TranspHuse Lip pHixative – The rollerball application lets the product glide smoothly over your lips.   This anti-aging lip plumper helps to keep the lines at bay and the fullness in.  Now granted, you won’t get Angelina Jolie lips from this but it helps to keep the lips you have looking great.  This is not a moisturizer, but a treatment.   Apply a moisturizer after this has settled in, and your moisturizer goes on over smoothly.  $50

3.  Jane Iredale LipDrink SPF15 –  When I was on vacation recently, I tried to find a lip moisturizer that had SPF that was higher than a 4.   I ran across this LipDrink with SPF 15 and keep a tube around all the time.   It’s super moisturizing, and contains macadamia nut oil, green tea extract along with  vitamins E & C.  $11.

4.  Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – Available also in a Rose tint, and both have SPF 15.   Super creamy and moisturizing, I haven’t met a person who has used one of these that doesn’t absolutely love them!  Made with sweet and tart blackcurrent oils, grapeseed polyphenols and Vitamins A, C & E.  The non rose tint one is actually very lemony flavored.  $22.50

5.  Lisa Hoffman Beauty Spa Facial Lip Moisturizer – When a blogger recently threw the question out to other bloggers “what’s your favorite lip product?” this LHB Lip Moisturizer was the #1 answer by beauty bloggers as their favorite.   It’s creamy texture cushions the lips with softness and moisture.  It contains Vitamins A, C & E, olive, sweet almond and avocado oils making the lips super soft.  $34.50
