I wear an awful lot of lipstick. I have been known to change shades two—maybe even three—times a day. And because I like to display my lips front and center, I need to make sure they are smooth, hydrated, and more importantly, flake free. Ain't no point in a deep vermilion red if it's going to be obscured by dry lips. My secret weapon of choice against this problem has been a super gentle sugar scrub that is delicate enough for everyday use. It's an addition I can't believe I've lived without for so long.

Read on to find out why I am obsessed with this one little lip polish in particular. 

What It's Called:

Cocovit Lip Polish

How Much It Will Set You Back:

A yummy rice bowl from sweetgreen...or $16;

What Makes It Special: 

This is a lovely natural version of a traditional lip scrub. It's minty and is made with coconut and sugar. What makes it really special, however, is its finely milled consistency. It allows you to polish your lips, while not removing too much skin in the process.

Who’s It For?

If you have lips, you should probably be using a lip scrub. It helps to keep them comfortably moisturized and able to absorb whatever lip moisturizer you choose. It's ideal if you wear a lot of matte lipstick.

When to Use It:

Every morning or before you put on a bold lip.

What It Feels Like:

Smooth as can be.

What the Internet Is Saying:

Start your morning with our minty, refreshing lip polish. {exclusively @anthropologie}

I discovered @cocovitbeauty over a year ago and was blown away by what I learned. Most coconut oil isn't raw even when it says cold-pressed! I say "most" because Cocovit is 100% raw organic coconut oil derived from young coconuts and extracted through a proprietary method. I can feel the difference in the results: silky soft skin and hair and no signs of breakouts which usually happens to me with coconut oil. I'm not the only one obsessed. @anthropologie is too. The curated beauty section carries exclusive products from Cocovit like the NEW lip Polish (upper right corner). It melts over my lips with the little scrubbing sugar granules--YUM!--(no microbeads, natch). It is as delicious as it is effective in smoothing my pout and leaving lips buttery soft. Have you tried the mask, orange basil lip balm, or signature coconut oil? Must haves in any beauty arsenal. . . . (PS remember to take advantage of my coupon code in the last post!
