MAC Lip Scrubtious, $36
Designed to rid your lips of flakes, this line of lip scrubs is made with nourishing oils and granulated sugar and comes in several flavours including this one, Sweet Vanilla. The idea is to massage over your lips with your finger to gently exfoliate away dead skin and then remove with a tissue prior to applying lipstick. But if you happen to lick your lips in the process, it'll do you no harm and it tastes seriously yum! Shop and/or review
