Yuzu Vanilla Lip Mask

Have you ever heard of a lip mask? Actually, I never heard of it before until I found this recipe for Yuzu Vanilla Lip Mask from The Natural Beauty Workshop.  Basically, it is an intensive lip balm that is perfect for fighting the harsh winter weather.  The best time that this lip mask should be applied is at bedtime.  Generously slather the balm over your lips before you go to sleep and you will likely wake up with more luscious and moisturized lips.
