Along with cold temperatures and plenty of wind and snow, one of the most challenging parts of Canadian winter is dealing with the changes in your skin and hair that come along with the change of season.
Dry hands, faces and lips are frequent occurrences, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with them. Including both an exfoliating and moisturizing step in your skincare routine is an easy way to combat dry skin, and one affordable gadget sold on Amazon Canada is a must-have if you’re looking to ensure soft lips year-round.

What is it?
The Youkool Double-Sided Silicone Exfoliating Lip Brush may just be the answer to dry, flaky lips throughout the cold winter months. Made with a dual-sided silicone brush head attached to a lightweight wand, it’s a convenient way to remove dead skin and increase circulation while leaving soft skin behind.
The flexible brush heads feature a set of large bristles on one side and smaller bristles on the other, which can easily be cleaned with just soap and water. Gentle enough to be used daily, they can be used as a gentle exfoliator on their own or alongside your favourite scrubs.
Since each order comes with two of the silicone lip brushes, these tools are a total beauty steal at just $4 a brush.
What shoppers are saying
Amazon shoppers worldwide can’t get enough of these scrubbing brushes, which have already earned a 4.5-star rating from more than 3,000 satisfied customers.
“I’m no stranger to exfoliating my lips; I’ve been doing it since early high school days. I started with lip scrubs (which were messy and didn’t always taste good) and then started to scrub my lips with a damp towel,” reads one review. “When I found these it was life changing!! It was gentle yet effective! Not to mention super easy to clean.”
“Ordered this item for my mother, who complained about the dry skin on her lips quite often,” says another. “Does a great job of skin removal without tearing or bleeding lips. She uses circular motions using [the] large side first and finer [side] for finish work followed up with lip balm. She’s happy with it.”
While some reviewers found the tool to be less effective than other harsh methods of exfoliation, others suggested pairing it with an existing lip product for the best results.
“This lip brush tool is wonderful and a cost savvy purchase,” raves one reviewer. “I use the Lush sugar scrub and applying it using this tool has made the application much more effective. Great value would recommend 100%.”
If you’re looking for a solution to dry, flaky skin this winter, the Youkool Double-Sided Silicone Exfoliating Lip Brush may be an easy addition to your skincare routine. Not only is it affordable, but it’s also gentle and effective at removing dead skin cells for good.
Depending on the severity of dryness, you may just want to pair it with a sugar scrub or other exfoliating product to ensure that you see the very best results.
