Clarins Lip Comfort Oils

Clarins has always have been an innovative brand with products that not only work but also stimulate the senses, including scent, making them a pleasure to use. From the mauve-coloured, relaxing scented Extra-Firming Facial Mask to the uplifting treatment fragrance Eau Des Jardin range and the soothing Relax Bath & Shower Gel. One of my favourite Clarins products the Lip Comfort Oils are part of this innovative nature and now have been extended from 3 shades to 7.

Clarins are experts when it comes to the use of oils in their products since the inception of their Face and Body Oils over 60 years ago. This technology has now been applied to oils for the lips. These are ultra-glossy yet non-sticky and super nourishing. Each shade contains hazelnut and jojoba oil with each lip oil containing a further key ingredient and fragrance.

Existing shades:

  • 01 Honey with hazelnut
  • 02 Raspberry with raspberry
  • 03 Red Berry with annatto

New shades:

  • 04 Candy with organic amaranth
  • 05 Tangerine with organic buriti
  • 06 Mint with field mint
  • 07 Honey Glam with hazelnut & includes a shimmer

The shades of the lip oils are not as intense as they are in the bottle so don’t run away from the Mint shade as this may actually be the star of the new collection. When applied to lips it is clear and the inclusion of icy cool menthol gives the lips a ‘plumped’ affect. I am currently using the the Red Berry one which is sweet but not sickly. However, as is my nature I craving one of each.

NEW – Lancome La Nuit Tresor

Sultry, smouldering, passionate, love – four words Lancome use to describe the new La Nuit Tresor Eau de Parfum. Created by masters of French perfumery Christophe Raynaud and Amandine Clerc Marie.

The original Tresor fragrance was created in 1990 by nose Sophia Grojsman and to be honest is not one of my favourites. That said I love when my mum wears it, it suits her just not me. So how does La Nuit Tresor compare? For me this is a complete, new and independent fragrance and I love it!

This is a Gourmand, Woody, Floriental with top notes of Raspberry, Lychee and Bergamot, heart notes of Frankincense and Rose and base notes of Vanilla Tahitensis, Patchouli and Papyrus. This contains no ordinary rose, it is “the Aphrodisiac Rose”. The bottle is shaped like a black diamond and if I believed in displaying fragrances this would be to the forefront (I keep mine hidden in a dark, cool place to preserve the juice). The bottle itself is a beautiful piece of artwork completed with the iconic Lancome rose ribbon.

Black Rose bottle

Penelope Cruz, a long-time ambassadoress with Lancome, is the face of the campaign and is simply stunning. She embodies the sultry, smouldering, passion and love of La Nuit Tresor.

La Nuit Tresor Eau de Parfum is on counter now available as a 30ml, 50ml & 100ml and is accompanied by a 200ml body lotion and 200ml shower gel.
