Oil for the face? Check. Oil for the body? Check. Oil for the lips? About time! I’m a lip balm junkie and love using facial and body oils to deliver a serious dose of moisture to my dry skin. When these lip oils were announced I was very excited!
I finally got my mittens on these! These Clarins lip oils have been sold out everywhere in the UK when they first launched on British ground back in early February. I’ve been hunting for them and waiting for them to hit shelves in Norway (there’s always a delay for all things fabulous to reach us scandinavians) and finally found them! I had to go back and get the other shade as well because I loved it that much.
If you are anything like me and always panic whenever you leave the house without a lip balm in your purse, bag and both your pockets, I think you’ll find like me that lip oils are your new best friend.
I have it in both 01 Honey and 02 Raspberry and they are so moisturising and good! It’s not a runny oil but has more of a thick and comforting consistency. I don’t find it sticky like lipglosses are, and it lasts a long time on the lips. Although it’s thick it’s not the reserved-for-bedtime-only thick, once its on the lips it looks like a nice lipgloss but feels like the most nourishing lip balm. I also find it really therapeutic to layer on the oil with the large foam applicator. Honey goes clear on the lips whilst Raspberry will leave only the slightest hint of colour. They do of course deliver a good punch of shine. They perform so well I’ve replaced my evening lip balm Nuxe Reve de Miel and my day time lip balms from Korres and REN with these.
Raspberry is my favourite as I love the smell of it, but I love love Honey as well. These will be coming with me everywhere!
