Winter Lip Service With Sara Happ

Dry lips, who dis? Everyone in winter. With a myriad of products on the market that promise to save and hydrate our precious pout, we decided to ask the OG lip expert, Sara Happ, creator of the original lip scrub and other vital products for all of our lip-loving needs, how to get our pucker to stay hydrated, smooth, and kissable, despite the climate.
