The Best Exfoliators for Dry, Chapped Lips
Insert alt text here

From relentless winter air to space heaters on high, it’s a dry time out here, folks. If you find yourself licking your chapped, flaky lips out of pain and desperation every five minutes — even after you’ve applied the routine lip balm — it’s probably (definitely) time to throw exfoliants into the mix.

It may seem like an unnecessary extra step, but you really can’t get truly moisturized lips in the winter without getting rid of the dry and dead skin cells first; otherwise, your balms will just be sitting on top of a really sad situation. The key ingredient in essentially every formula is good old-fashioned sugar, and it’s that gentle roughness that helps slough away the patchy dry spots.

To get started, here are five of the best lip scrubs on the market right now, from the grittiest to the most affordable to the most convenient to use. Tanisha Pina, market editor

Sara Happ Lip Scrub ($22): The OG! This just may be the most exfoliating scrub of the bunch thanks to its large sugar granules that are mixed in with a nourishing blend of scented petrolatum and jojoba and grape seed oils. I tried the Sparkling Peach version — which literally smells like a peach Bellini — but there are a handful of others if that’s not your thing. 

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish ($24): Fan favorite for a reason. This classic from Fresh strikes the perfect balance between hydrating and buffing out your lips. It’s made with brown sugar crystals, shea butter, and jojoba oil, so it smells like your mom baking on a Sunday. (You’ll be tempted to ingest, but, you know, don’t.)

E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator ($3): Love a drugstore option. Along with tiny sugar bits, this tube is infused with vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, and grape and jojoba oils to soothe your lips while you exfoliate (even though you should definitely follow up with a lip balm). The only negative here is that you have to wear down the top waxy layer to get to the scrub — I’d suggest using the back of your hand to do so.

Bite Everyday Agave Lip Collection ($18): Bite sells its lip scrub in a three-for-one set that also includes a lip mask and a balm, each of which can be used on its own or together for a nice little routine. The scrub itself is made with brown sugar and pineapple enzymes to gently exfoliate, and it smells like dessert. A dime-size amount is about all you need.

Dior Lip Sugar Scrub ($34): If you’re feeling fancy, this option from Dior is pretty great and, in my opinion, worth the money. It’s another tube, so you don’t have to worry about making a mess or using your fingers, and as an added bonus, there’s no need to wipe the excess away: The sugar granules melt into a balm that even adds a flush of pink to your lips.

Where to Shop for Jewelry Online
Laura Lombardi jewelry

Getting a pair of diamond earrings from your significant other or a cheesy charm bracelet from your mom is nice and all, but the truth is, buying jewelry for yourself — with your own money, on your own time, and of your own taste (sorry, Mom!) — is one of the more satisfying shopping experiences out there.

But even though you already know what you like, figuring out where to look can be the hardest part of the hunt, whether you’re in the market for a new everyday necklace or a fun cocktail ring, or if you’re ready to drop a few Gs on something really special.

To help, we’ve rounded up some of the best places to shop for jewelry online, broken down by category: statement jewelry, fine jewelry, delicate and everyday pieces, and the multibrand sites with the best selections. You’ll find a range of prices within each list, so whether your budget is $30 or $3,000, we promise there will be something for you to check out.

Faris: Designer Faris Du Graf originally began her jewelry line four years ago as an experiment in her basement, but thankfully she decided to make her brand of unique, geometric designs more widely available. The entire line has a distinctive POV, but each design stands out in its own right, from these lash-like fringe metal earrings ($195) to the Rest ring that fits like an hourglass sculpture on the wearer’s finger ($98).

Machete: This young Atlanta-based brand became a Racked office favorite for its studs and hoops, plus chic hair ties and circle hair clips in fun pastels and tortoise acetate. Not only is the collection really affordable — like, $9-to-$78 affordable — but the jewelry and hair accessories are also super lightweight, so you can wear them all day. Plus! They’re all made with high-grade, Italian-imported materials that are natural and renewable.

Roxanne Assoulin: This New York-based line (founded by Rosie Assoulin’s mother-in-law) is such a treat. The entire collection is reminiscent of camp-made friendship bracelets or a gold mine of good costume jewelry, from the rainbow-colored chokers ($120) and beaded stretch bracelets ($45) to the mismatched Swarovski crystals clip earrings ($120). It’s all fun without being too over-the-top — or, as the brand puts it, “an uncomplicated indulgence.”

Monica Vinader: There are a lot of different styles of jewelry to shop from this British brand, but it’s the selection of fine rings and earrings that’s really impressive. Because Vinader often designs with pavé instead of big, single diamonds, you can get just as much sparkle as you would from one stone without the tremendous price tag. For example, the Circle Stud Earrings are $450, and the Diamond Hoop Ring is only $250.

Mejuri: From stackable rings to open circle and bar studs, Mejuri makes every modern staple piece of jewelry you could think of, and offers them for completely reasonable prices too. For the most part, the selection is understated but chic; even the evil eyes ($48) are the type of stuff you could wear all the time and never take off. If you’re looking for a gift, the brand offers some very reasonable engravable pieces as well.

Forever 21’s Fun-to-Shop Beauty Store Finally Launches Online
Stila makeup

Riley Rose, the unique and surprisingly engaging chain of beauty stores founded by the family that owns Forever 21, just launched e-commerce.

The first Riley Rose store opened near LA last October. Linda and Esther Chang, the daughters of the Forever 21 founders who are running the new endeavor, wanted a freestanding beauty store that would appeal to millennials and Gen Z. The stores are a wonderland of pink and offer a variety of K-beauty, natural skincare, sparkly makeup from both indie and established brands, an impressive assortment of haircare, and — an important point of differentiation from other beauty stores — candy, small accessories, and whimsical home goods. The whole place is happy and will make you want to 1) Instagram it and 2) buy stuff, in that order.

According to a rep for the company, all of the products except (sadly) the candy are currently available online. The description on each generally offers a few bullet points on what it’s used for and an ingredient list. While the magic of the in-store experience is missing from the website, it’s still a great place for beauty discovery, and there’s free shipping when you spend over $50.
