Now, they’re everywhere you turn and all the people in your life seem to have gotten a memo you didn’t. And the bloody ads are following you around on Instagram too, daring you to try one for yourself.
We’re talking, of course, about lip oils.

Lip balm is lovely and, please, don’t go chucking all yours out, but if you’re keen to pump some hydration into lifeless winter lips, look no further than lip oil.

- Smell absolutely delightful.
- Aren’t as sticky as a lip gloss but still make your lips looks nice and shiny.
