Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil
Rated 5 out of 5 by Canada Kate from best lip product I've used In any season, my lips are dry, but in the cold Canadian winter they are a constant problem. I bought the set of three (honey, berry, raspberry) just before Christmas and I've used it daily since. As an almost-65 year old woman I have great skin but dry lips, so I'm always on the look-out for a good product. This one is excellent! I highly recommend it. It is the only lip product that is still present when I awake in the morning, so now I use it before bed every evening. In the daytime, I use one of the three shades depending on the lip colour I want to emphasize, and often over a lipstick. It looks wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle1445 from Well worth the buy if you abuse your lips like me! I love using this product when my lips are dry, or even after I take off my drying, matifying liquid lipsticks, because it's like nothing ever happened. If your lips are chapped I would recommend 2-3 uses a day for two days at least. But they will be back to normal in no time! And this lip oil doesn't have the drying agents that chap sticks have, so you know you won't get chapped lips from it. It feels heavy at first, but after ten minutes it's turned into a lightweight oil with a glossy finish. I thought I would need the red one if I wanted a bit of color to show up, I was wrong, while both the pink and red one smell and look lovely, the red is quite noticeable. If you want a sheer flush of color I would recommend the pink. Overall great product, I know it's expensive, but it's well worth the high quality ingredients, and it really works! Plus, I can always use my points to buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nicole from Stays on a long time Smells wonderful and is so soothing. Has a beautiful glossiness and is a nice consistency, not too thin or too thick and stays on for quite a while. It also doesn't taste gross, I hate lip products that leave a gross taste in your mouth and this one doesn't at all. It's very healing too, my kids got all burnt while camping this week and I put it on all of them before bed each night, they loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mariella from Really nice but bring back the rosy shade, PLEASE! Like the previous reviewer, I am in Southern Ontario and winters here usually result in chapped, sore, cracked lips unless I'm vigilant. This "oil" is thicker than you would think, given the name. It's more like a rich, nourishing lip gloss. I generally use this at night, before bed, and often apply it over Hydra Quench lip balm. I wake in the morning with hydrated, soft, soothed lips and if I remember to use this every night, I'll be able to keep my lips soft and healthy all winter. I only wish Clarins would bring back the rosy shade of this oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oreo85 from Gorgeous lip treatment I don't usually like to use hyperboles in my reviews, but this is an indulgence for your lips. I bought my first Lip Comfort Oil one year ago, and have repurchased three since (two for me, one for a friend!). My favourite is the original Honey scented one, simply because the scent is both nostalgic and lightly sweet! The scent fades within about 30 minutes and is not overpowering in my opinion. If you happen to taste it, it does not taste chemical at all. I have to reapply every 4-5 hours depending if I eat or drink, but it's never a problem given the amazing jumbo pillowy applicator and the moisturizing effects of the oil. The only minor downside is that it is a bit tacky. I am so glad I discovered this product and will repurchase many times again, Clarins did an amazing job on this release!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Madeline_dm from Delicious, but sticky! So I totally bought into the hype for this "lip oil", which is really just a sticky lip gloss with the same raspberry flavour as my lip gloss. I got it from The Bay as it was a limited edition alternative to the permanent honey flavour. I can't say that I'll repurchase it, but it has a very fun jumbo applicator that almost feels like jelly on the lips. The formula is thick, and can get a bit gloopy. Beware of the dreaded hair-sticking-to-lips situation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DaniHMcV from It's Ok.... I have the lip oil in green (menthol) and it's just ok. I got it as a gift from Shopper's when I bought some things online (thank you BeautyBoutique!!). It isn't sticky, which I expected, so that's nice, but I find it's not as moisturizing as a nice tube of lip balm. This lip oil feels heavy and I don't think it gets absorbed into lips, it just ends up getting rubbed or licked off and is not as effective as I had hoped. I am very thankful it was sent as a sample, but I really don't think I would buy the full sized lip oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandie from Best Lip Oil I have now gone through 3 of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil and can say that I will happily repurchase these again and again. They are perfect for night time use as well as morning. In the morning I put this on before I start doing my makeup and by the time I am done it has sank into my lips leaving a perfect canvas for applying any lip product over top. At night I put this on before bed and wake up to soft lips.
