Lip Mask 101: Tips & Tricks

Let’s talk lip masks!

Popular as part of the Korean beauty wave sweeping social media, lip masks are designed mainly as a moisturizer. Of course, there isn’t one exact definition of a lip mask—some are actual masks or sheets, while others are thick cream. We will cover both types in this article.

To find the best bets, we tried out a dozen brands. After some hands-on testing, here are some take-home tips we learned along the way:

• Consider exfoliating your lips before using these lip masks. A soft toothbrush and mild cleanser should do the trick. You can also find lip scrubs that do the same thing!

• Once a week should be good enough. Don’t overuse these lip masks, as they sometimes contain collagen that is best when used sparingly!

• Some lip masks are designed for overnight use; others are for shorter periods of time.

After trying out several brands, here are the ones we think are the best bets.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
