    According to '90s trio TLC, the general rule of thumb on scrubs is that we don't want none. That is, until we're talking about beauty products which remove dead, flaky skin from our midst. In that case, bring 'em on, especially if we're talking about smoothing out chapped lips. Lip inflammation and cracked skin are the bane of most of our existence in the winter: It ruins a lipstick look, kissing becomes way awkward, and, if left untreated, the whole mess can split and bleed.
