Ada Lip Beauty Lip Rally ($14)

What it is:
Banish dry lips with this nourishing, exfoliating, vegan lip scrub. Formulated with natural oils and sugars, this beauty staple knows how to get the job done right.

How to use:
Gently swipe the stick back and forth across the lips two to three times. To ensure all layers of your pout are deeply exfoliated, use your ring finger to rub it in with circular motions immediately after application.

Editor feedback:
“If you don’t get dry lips, you are a unicorn. This two-in-one exfoliator and hydrator immediately helps with dry, chapped lips. I love to use it in the morning as a prep for wearing lip color for all day Zoom calls.”—Sarah Eggenberger, Editor-at-Large

Key ingredients:
You can’t go wrong with cocoa seed butter, jojoba oil and shea oil: some of the most nourishing ingredients in the skin-care game. The addition of all-natural sugar beads gives the product its oomph and blends seamlessly with the rich oils.

Expert insight:
“Living in New York has really changed this southern girl’s view on what winter means. My lips were dry and peeling every cold season. I wanted to create something simple, yet effective in exfoliating and delivering the hydration my lips needed. Being allergic to a myriad of day-to-day toiletries, like even regular toothpaste, I wanted the formula to be as clean and natural as possible. It’s this principle that extends to Ada Lip Beauty’s whole product line.” —Ada Hsieh, Founder
