This product is a life saver for my dry, parched, lips! I bought this peel thinking it might work, and wow it really exfoliates dead skin away without being too harsh on my sensitive lip skin. I thought it might be the product at first that was rubbing off... but no, it really is dead skin. My matte lipsticks go on smoothly and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs help with their lips. Just make sure to apply a good lip balm afterwards and you'll be all set to have a soft pout.
