Pucker Up, Babes.

Even days off are filled with to-do lists and running around, so the biggest factor in my beauty routine can be summarized with one word: convenience. Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-3Another major factor? Any products used must work. None of us have time for things that fall short of our expectations.

With all that in mind, my favorite fail-proof product is Vaseline. I’ve quite literally been using it since day one – my parents used it to heal dry skin when I was a baby! It was a product used before makeup was even on my radar, and even now when makeup is a part of my daily routine, it’s still my go to. Why? Because, particularly in the winter where dry, chapped skin is a regular, it worksVaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-8 Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-9

On my lips specifically, I love that it creates a fresh, natural look while always keeping hydrated. And now that Vaseline is offering lip tins (Grab them at Target!) that are easy to throw in your purse and grab whenever, I’ve been using variations of the product even more.

(The perfect pucker-up prep for Valentine’s Day!) These photos were shot last weekend right after I spoke on the Windy City Blogger Collective panel, and Doug and I were venturing out for a little date night together. Between the Original and Rosy Lips tins, I was covered the entire day. No cracked lips here, which I know that Doug definitely appreciates! Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-13Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-14Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-2So that, my friends, is how I shimmy-shimmy my way through busy days – from speaking on panels to dates with my hubby – with soft lips as the perfect compliment. Vaseline lip therapy_Valentines Day Style_Beauty blogger in Chicago-7

    First of all, outfit on POINT. I’m seriously devastated that top is sold out in my size. Secondly, I use the pink “Rosy Lips” Vaseline, too! It’s a lifesaver these days… Pesky Chicago winters!! (Though last weekend was so warm… Wasn’t it magical?!)

    XOXO!

    My 5, almost 6, year old son came home from school the other day and said that his lips were dry so he had to go to the clinic to get some GASOLINE on them. Now he has his own in his backpack and I have a fun little memory.
