ESPA Nourishing Lip Treatment


Suddenly, lip oils are a thing. And we love them.

And we especially love ESPA Nourishing Lip Treatment: a natural option, rather than petroleum-based. (Which some are, we've discovered, after squinting at the ingredients lists.)

This is comfier than you favourite pair of jeans or cashmere sweater, blending raspberry and pomegranate seed oils (rich in omegas), Indian gentian leaves (said to be good for collagen-boosting), then adding a mega-dose of our old favourites, hyaluronic acid filling spheres. Squinting at THIS ingredient list, we can also see there's castor oil, grapeseed extract and sunflower oil in there, too.

Gliding on with a doe-foot applicator, it's also fantastic for adding a slightly glossy sheen to lipstick – or using before a strong, matte lip colour for a more sheer effect.

Which means come autumn, when an avalanche of bold shades is set to land on the make-up counters, you'll be wanting to keep this close.
