As a contributor to Squeaky Deals, OKAY! magazines Haley Gunn knows a thing or two about getting quality products for less, hence why she regularly searches Holy hydration from elf Cosmetics! Moisturizing Lip Mask.
“It’s under $7 but works like a premium lip mask,” she says, comparing the affordable offering to LANEIGE’s famous lip sleeping maskwhich sells for more than 3 times the price at $24.
But beyond the elf product’s reasonable price, Haley cites the lip mask’s speed and effectiveness as the reason it’s had a lasting impact on her routine.
“What I love is how quickly it works to rehydrate and repair your lips,” she shares, thinking of how the balm came to the rescue during a recent vacation in Colorado.
“After going to Denver, my skin and lips were really dry and my lips started cracking,” she recalled. Although at first Haley says she was “hesitant” to try the product on her cracked skin, her choice eventually paid off. “Happy to report that I had no issues using it and it didn’t cause any irritation,” she adds.
Along with helping her parched pout in times of crisis, the writer says she also regularly uses the mask to help prep her lips while applying makeup.
“I felt like my lips drank it in and it absorbed quickly,” she says, “So I use it when I’m prepping so my lip products have a strong base.”
