I know I know, we’ve not even had Christmas yet but this Feb 2015 launch is so fabulous that you need to hear about it now!
As you will probably know, Clarins face and body treatment oils lay at the heart of the brand thanks to their potent plant extracts which help to rebalance the skin while their aromas create a unique, therapeutic experience.
Retaining these intrinsic brand values is the fabulous new Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil.
Yes you read correctly, a lip oil!
This unique, modern product is designed to comfort and moisturise your lips without oiliness or stickiness.
Packed full of rich active plant ingredients such as hazelnut oil, Mirabelle and organic jojoba oils, the formula is preservative free and thanks to the pure plant oils, they possess their own aromatic properties so you won’t find any synthetic fragrances here.
There will be two shades available, 01 Honey, which I tried, and 02 Raspberry, which will be available online only.
Given the name of the product I expected the texture to be light like an oil but in fact it was much thicker, more like a gloss.
When applied, I would say that the oil felt more like a gloss, but to my delight didn’t have any of the gloopy, stickiness you would get with a gloss.
The texture is rich, thick and super nourishing, leaving my lips feeling soft and protected against the elements.
It has a very delicate, pleasant scent of honey and while it appears to be a beautiful shade of gold in the bottle, when applied it’s actually transparent.
I Love this product! It lasts longer than a lip balm, possesses all the shine of a gloss but without the stickiness and leaves my lips looking and feeling soft and beautiful!
It’s the perfect product to add a hint of shine to a coloured lip or to use alone as a luxury treatment.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil will be available from February 2015 and will cost £18.
