The best way to treat your skin is with something sweet. My favorite affordable scents for body and lip products are from the Sephora collection, and they are as nourishing as they are sweet-smelling.
Sephora Banana and Rose Hand Balm
These hand balms knock it out of the park and meet every criteria I have for a hand cream. They smell incredible, and by incredible, I mean, freaking addicting. I have honestly preferred these scents to some of my favorite perfumes. They are just so good. Then there’s the moisturization; it’s on par with any other top-rated hand cream. They are lightweight, nongreasy, and super-fast absorbing. And the best part, they are only $5, yes, you read that right. $5
Sephora Banana Lip Balm and Kiwi Lip Scrub
These two lip products have been game-changers for me. The Kiwi lip scrub is the most convenient and straightforward lip scrub ever. No more scooping and smearing lip scrubs over your lips. With Kiwi, you just apply it to your lips kind of like you would a lipstick, except you add in little circular motions. The scrub has tiny granules that gently exfoliate your lips, prepping them perfectly for a more smooth and longlasting lipstick application.
The banana balm is as moisturizing as it is heavenly scented. This lip balm quickly has become my favorite lip moisturizer this summer. I’ll admit that when I first got it, I thought I’d be using it mostly for the scent and that I’d have to intersperse a more intense balm to really moisturize my lips, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the moisture capabilities of Sephora’s lip balm. Not only is it entirely sufficient as an all-day lip moisturizer, but I’ve also been using it at night as a sleep mask for my lips. The banana balm and the Kiwi scrub will each cost you $6 for the sweetest lips of your life.
