Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

When I was presented with the Clarins’ newest releases from the upcoming Spring collection, my beady eyes instantly made a beeline for this new lip comfort oil. Was it a balm? Was it a gloss? Do I want to put oil on my lips?  The limited edition Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil from Clarins (£18) is the newest edition to their renowned oil heritage, following on from the huge success of Clarins’ face and body oils (the blue orchid face treatment oil is a must for parched skin), and continues to prove that potent plant extracts are unequalled at rebalancing the skin.

This new lip oil is rich in active plant ingredients and is just incredible at moisturising and conditioning the lips whilst feeling surprisingly comfortable and wearable when applied. Now I am not the biggest lip gloss fan – I just can’t deal with the constant stickiness and the risk of hair-stuck-on-lip dramas, so I was worried that this would feel too gloppy for my liking but I was so wrong. The oil is light and almost melts into your lips, just giving you a subtle sheen and a boost of natural colour. It is basically like a really good, buttery lip balm but with all the added goodness of hazelnut oil, mirabelle and organic jojoba oils which envelope the lips and nourish any dryness. Since the season has turned decidedly more chilly I have been suffering quite a bit from chapped lips so this new product could not have arrived at a more apt time! Whether you wear it alone or layered over a matte lipstick, for example, it is a miracle worker and hasn’t left my makeup bag since I started using it. I have shade 01. Honey which is practically clear but enhances your lip colour and has a gorgeously sweet scent. Clarins have also released 02. Raspberry which is available exclusively online and looks very berry beautiful. Once it is back in stock I think I might have to swoop in and make a cheeky purchase…

Do you like the sound of this new lip oil product from Clarins?

    I very much like the sound of it! Since being on Roaccutane my lips have done nothing but suffer with the cold – need something let me wear lipstick again!

    I really like the sound of this! Especially the berry edition! I love that it isn't sticky or greasy too and just feels like a balm – might have to have a peek at these!

    This is something I would love to try. I get very dry skin and I'm always on the look for new lip moisturising products.

    I think I would only use this at night because of how sticky it is and stuff. I did test this at the weekend with my mum and isn't as sticky as I thought it would be.

    Really interesting, I've never heard of an oil for your lips! My lips are always chapped and dry, so really curious to see how effective it is.

    The oil definitely sounds pretty strange but I'm really keen to try it. It looks so unique and different from other products!
