There are many different preferences when it comes to the consistency of the product on your lips. Valerie has you covered for VALentines with the coolest kissables for this day we celebrate love!

DIY Exfoliate
It's always great to incorporate an exfoliating treatment to rid your lips of dead skin for a soft smooth surface especially during these cooler months. You can do this yourself by simply combining a tablespoon of brown sugar with honey or olive oil. I like to squeeze in some of my favorite citrus juice which will make your kiss that much tastier. Apply once or twice a week.
