Winter can be an absolute pain when it comes to your precious lips. We need them for so many things, especially kissing for Valentine's Day, but the bitterly baltic weather does it's best to dry them out.

We were intrigued by the science behind it, so asked Marie Therese, Head of Training with Graham Anthony Distribution, for the 411 on why our lips lose their coveted moisture.

She explained that our lips can become very dry because our lips do not have working sebaceous glands, which would serve the purpose of keeping our lips moist. Harsh conditions and ageing are also key factors.

Cracks can appear as we grow older, and thinning can take place. In the winter, saliva containing amylase and maltase strips away the skin on our lips, leaving them exposed to dry air. (EW)

Basically; take care of ya mouth (Inside and out). We're talkin' dental, we're talkin lip balms, we're talkin' lip moisturising.

We've got you covered for the day of luuuurve; try any of these for February 14 and your lips will thank you for the kissing treatment.

Look, don't kill us, but Christmas actually is just around the corner. While it may seem way to early to even be considering Christmas ('Halloween is still a month away!' we hear you cry) the thing is, when it comes to the holiday season, you have to be prepared if you want the best of the best. 

One element of the season of giving that we love is essentially giving to ourselves everyday with a cheeky little advent calendar. 

However, today we're not just talking about any old advent calender – although the ones with the little chocolate shapes are divine.

One of our favourite looks from Sunday night's Emmy Awards was Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams. 

She donned a very soft retro look with a pastel pink strapless gown and fluff-top heels (which we adore).

Something else we adored on the night was Maisie's make-up.

Her skin glowed from one end of the red carpet to the other and we have just found out that's all thanks to Kiehl's skincare. 

Makeup artist, Kindra Mann, was responsible for the stars look on the night.

“I was totally inspired tonight by Maisie's retro feeling pink dress. I loved that the colour and texture gave it a vintage feel."

"We wanted the makeup to feel that same way, but with a more modern twist.”

“To keep Maisie’s skin looking fresh all night I started off by pressing a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate onto her skin before applying a little of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for added moisture."

"I prepped the under eye area with a little of Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

Sounds like a dreamy pampering session to us!

“For the lips we wanted a nice nude color that was a little softer than the pink in the dress.  I started off by applying Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips." 

"I then added Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in #1 Pale Pink Nude to give it that perfect nude color.”

And what's more, we can get our hands on these gorgeous products too! Everything used on Maisie is available from Dundrum Town Centre and Arnotts

Kiehl’s have been providing expert tailor-made skincare since they opened over 160 years ago in New York City. Using the best of cosmetic and herbal knowledge, they’ve developed a wide range of amazing products that will leave you and your skin feeling fantastic from tip-to-toe. Our beauty writer Odette called into their flagship Dublin store to find out more:

I arrived into the Kiehl’s Wicklow St store full of excitement. I’ve used and loved a couple of Kiehl’s products in the past, like their Eucalyptus Lip Relief Balm and their Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, but I’m definitely still a newbie to the range.

I was greeted by a lovely skin consultant who asked me in depth about my skin, my skincare regime and any problem areas I had before deciding what products would be best suited to me.

She then pulled out products for an entire start-to-finish skincare regime tailored just for my skin and tried them out on me, so I could feel the texture and consistency. I have to say I was so impressed by how right she got every product, I easily could have bought the lot!

Anyone who pops into the Kiehl’s flagship store on Wicklow St. will be offered a complimentary and bespoke skincare consultation, as well as deluxe sample of some of the products to try at home.

Also, when you fall head over heels for any of the products recommended to you and spend over €75, you will given a full size Crème de Corps body moisturiser for free, but only while stocks last, so get down ASAP as it really is too good of an offer to miss! I am now a total Kiehl’s convert and can’t wait to go back.
