Lip Masks: What They Are & How They Work

If you’re looking to say “goodbye” to dry, chapped lips and “hello” to a plump, hydrated pout, then lip masks are the product that you’ve been searching for! Lip masks moisturize, hydrate, and nourish your lips to help them heal from the irritants they encounter all day long. Here’s what you need to know about using a lip mask:

What Is a Lip Mask?

A lip mask is a super hydrating lip product that is designed to be worn for a set amount of time. Most lip masks are meant to be used overnight but they can sometimes be worn during the daytime too — our Fieldtrip hydrating lip mask is perfect for day or night use! Lip masks typically contain highly occlusive ingredients such as butters and oils that work to sooth your lips and prevent moisture loss, resulting in a plump, soft pout.

Do Lip Masks Work?

The short answer is yes, lip masks work! While not every skincare product is a must-have, lip masks are an essential product in our nighttime routines. Our lips are very delicate, but they’re exposed to a lot of potential irritants in the form of food and drink. Lip masks help to prevent moisture loss while you sleep and promote healing and hydration while your lips recover from the effects of the day. They also help to keep your lips moisturized during the day and to protect them from chapping and irritation.

How To Use a Lip Mask

We recommend using a lip mask at night due to its thicker texture, which does not form a great base for lip glosses or lipsticks. Always remove your makeup and wash your face first before continuing with nighttime skincare, including lip masks. For extra softening effects, you can try exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub before applying a lip mask to remove any dead skin flakes and ensure you are getting the best moisturizing effects possible.

Once you are ready to apply the lip mask, scoop up a small amount with a clean Q-tip or fingertip. Smear it all over your lips and rub them together to ensure that you have covered the entirety of your lips. If you have any excess product on your lips, feel free to blot them gently to remove the excess.

Note that lip masks are for external use only and should not be ingested if at all possible. Keep them away from the eye area as well, and rinse your eyes will water if the lip mask comes into contact with them.

Lip Mask Ingredients

Our Overnight Trip Hydrating Lip Mask contains multiple ingredients that are designed to soften, nourish, and hydrate the lips. Some standout ingredients are:
