My poor lips have really suffered this summer. My allergies have been so bad I’m destined to live in a bubble but since that’s not practical, I’m on an extra heavy dose of allergy medicines which causes me to be a mouth-breather. Lemme tell ya, being a mouth breather is very hard on the lips–dry, chapped and cracked lips are painful and unattractive.
When I got the chance to try Bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit ($45) I was thrilled to get a full ‘ facial’ for my lips at home. This the same popular pampering treatment offered at the Bliss spa.
The treatment consists of four steps:
- Foaming lip cleanser: the cleansing complex breaks down waxes and oils to gently cleanse lips and lift away impurities and it’s fun to use!
- Sugar Lip Scrub:finely granulated sweet sugar, almond and walnut shell gently buff away dry flakes. Jojoba seed oil, olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter an vitamins A, C, & E nourish and condition lips. This tastes and smells divine!
- Instant Lip Plumper:cork tree extract and a peptide-packed complex enhances contour to visibly volumize lips, delivering both immediate inflation and long-lasting lushness. My upper is very thin and when I smile it’s non-existent. I’m not thrilled at the thought of injectable or fillers so I’m always on the lookout for lip plumpers that don’t hurt and this works without the pain. Win! I love that the click pen is clear so you can tell how much you’re getting!
- Softening Lip Balm: shea butter, jojoba and grape seed oils and vitamin E seals lips to leave them moisturized, conditioned, nourished and incredibly supple. Love the smooth liquid-y feel of this, it actually melts into your lips.

Overall: this kit is fun to use and makes my lips super soft and smooth. Originally when I saw four products with four steps I wasn’t thrilled–I thought I would need to add another 20 minutes to my routine–oy vey! I was delighted to learn these four steps take all of 5 minutes and the payoff is fanstastic! After all, every other body part has a beauty regimen–face, hands, feet, hair, even your teeth–invest a little time on your lips. Dry, chapped lips are aging–full soft lips are youthful!
Bliss Fabulips Lip Treatment Kit is a bit pricy at $45 but I think it’s worth it. It’s available at blissworld.com, Sephora and everywhere Bliss products are sold.
