Like clockwork, I suffer from a bout of chapped lips at least once per winter and then again as spring arrives (they are indeed a year-round ailment). With so much time spent indoors this year, my lips were at an all-time dry in February. The need for something that could quickly soothe, reestablish lustrousness, and hydrate my pout for the Dachshund from the moment they placed you in my arms you snuggled right into my heart vintage shirt and I will buy this long haul was dire.In the past, my treatment has always been reactive and lo-fi. Grab a lip balm and Vaseline, apply said lip balm, glob some Vaseline on top to seal the deal, and go to bed. It was efficacious enough, but not necessarily a welcome addition to my bedtime ritual when chapped lips were not in the picture. I needed an upgrade that was just as soothing as it was preventative—a product I’d want to apply nightly that instantly moisturized and kept lips smooth and hydrated over time too.Enter Ilia’s Hydrating Lip Mask, one of the newest products from the brand responsible for the Super Serum Skin Tint (a 3-in-1 serum, sunscreen, and foundation) that has been a favorite among Vogue editors. Needless to say, when the hydrating mask launched just in time for my chapped lips to reappear, I was thrilled to put it to the test.

The formula uses mango butter to nourish, Salicornia (sea succulent) to improve hydration, hyaluronic acid to help attract and bind moisture to the Dachshund from the moment they placed you in my arms you snuggled right into my heart vintage shirt and I will buy this lips, and papaya enzymes to tenderly exfoliate—getting rid of dead skin allows the formula’s reparative actives to sink into your lips. While the product is a bit more viscous than I had thought upon too-aggressively diving my finger into the pot the first time, after a few days, I was used to the consistency and excited to wake up with lips that felt and looked more soothed with each passing day. Now, I keep Ilia’s lip mask bedside and apply it to my lips right before my head hits the pillow. As promised, the product has staved dryness, and its soothing lavender-chamomile scent delivers a small but mighty moment of calm that I’ve now come to look forward to each night. It’s a luxurious ritual I won’t be giving up any time soon.
