Back in January of this year, Clarins released the fabled Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils* (a bit of a mouthful if you ask me). They were limited edition, and despite the hype, I didn't get round to trying them. However, due to popular demand, Clarins has now brought these lip oils back as permanent products, and I can see why.
The oils come in two very sheer shades - 01 Honey and 02 Raspberry. Personally I feel they could have been a little more inventive with the names, but that's just me being picky. The products themselves are just lovely. With 100% natural ingredients, hazelnut oil acts as a natural preservative, and plant oils give a natural fragrance. The active plant ingredients moisturise wonderfully, and feel nourishing on the lips. Clarins claims the oils aren't oily or sticky - I'd have to say they feel a little sticky upon application to me, but it's not something that hugely bothers me.
The very subtle shades enhance lip colour ever so slightly, and the gloss they give is really pretty. The Honey shade has found it's way into my handbag as it's such a good product to use throughout the day. The packaging also lends itself to travelling with the perfect size little bottle and doe-foot applicator.
All in all a lovely little product as usual from Clarins, and one that could make a gorgeous Christmas gift that you know will be used!
