Directions from packaging:

Those who love extravagant lip make-up and matt textures should make sure that the lips are always well cared for and smooth. A good starting point: the Lip Sugar Scrub And Balm. The transparent texture feels like a conventional lip peeling. But unlike other peelings, it won t leave any residues behind on the skin. The texture practically melts with the lips, leaving them free of small skin particles and feeling super soft. Afterwards, apply the Lip Super Serum or the Lip Oil to additionally pamper the lips!
