How to use a lip oil

Written by Lisa

Dry, chapped lips are a problem for many of us, all year round. Enter lip oils, the latest beauty obsession and the new way to transform your pout from parched to perfectly hydrated. 


Lip oils are the latest trend

You've probably seen hair and face oils, but for 2020, lip oils are the new craze taking over. They’re a cross between a nourishing lip balm and a luxurious clear lip gloss, infused with skin-loving oils that impart long-lasting moisture onto lips. Our Beauty Lab is forever on the hunt for lip treatments that actually work. So far, we’re are extremely impressed with lip oils. You've not tried next level moisture until you've given this thirst-quenching kiss-fix a try.

Lip oil gives you gloss & hydration in one

How do they work?

Just as skin oils boost hydration and plump skin, lip oils will do the same. Natural Oils like Jojoba and Mulberry work to repair lips while you wear, as well giving that high gloss finish. Unlike the rest of our epidermis, lips don’t have oil glands. By applying oil, you create a barrier against external aggressors like sun, spicy food, cold weather, winds and more.


Lip Oil is the coolest texture


Here are just a few different uses for this multi-tasking wonder.

  • Wear it bare for translucent irresistible shine on nude lips.
  • Wear on top of colour and apply after lipstick for a sheer gloss finish.
  • Why not use before bed? The oils will improve the texture and moisture content of your lips. Sleep with your lip oil on to let the ingredients sink in overnight.
  • Prep tip: use a little Hand & Body Polish first to lightly exfoliate for super smooth flake-free finish.

  • Your lips, just like your fingers, have prints that are unique. No two pair of lips are the same.
  • Your lips don’t contain any sebaceous glands, hence why they dry out quicker
  • Your lips get thinner as you age because your body slowly starts to produce less collagen
