It’s no secret (or surprise) that winter is wreaking havoc on our skin thanks to the below-freezing temps that have taken over. And while we’re busy making DIY face masks and sharing skincare tips, our poor lips are chapping away. That is, until we came across the latest and greatest lip oil from Clarins.

Our new obsession looks like an ordinary pocket-sized lip gloss, but looks are deceiving and this little wonder packs serious lip-saving benefits. The small wand boasts a substantially larger applicator and the oil, which comes in Honey and Raspberry versions, gives lips a slight beautifying tint. Made with mirabelle plum, jojoba and hazelnut oils, the gel-like, non-sticky texture of this formula glides on effortlessly to provide moisture and nourishment to winter-plagued lips. The oil does a great job of smoothing out lips and gives them a nice sheen that lasts for hours, while the natural ingredients give the product a nice understated scent. 

You can bet we’ll be stocking up on this limited-edition miracle product for next year.
