Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil
We've already featured them in our round-up of 2015 beauty launches but, I felt the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils* (€19.00) deserved their own post - they are just that good!
As part of the 19th January-launching Garden Escape collection, the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil are designed to comfort and subtly enhance the lips. They contain active plant ingredients to nourish, including hazelnut oil, mirabelle and organic jojoba oil to soothe and repair dry, sore or cracked lips while also adding a sheen.
You are probably thinking something like "But, Sinead hates glossy lips?," and you would be right - I do. However, as a lip treatment, these oils are something special. They have an almost syrupy texture; very thick and not too viscous, which means that they sit on the lips until soaked in as opposed to slipping and sliding down your chin.
In terms of nourishment, I feel like the oils give lips a hydration shot but, also lock-in moisture for a more longlasting benefit. I would actually liken them to the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask that both Dee and I adore as they offer up that same slow hydration that makes them, in my book, very well suited to incorporating into an evening skincare routine.
