3 New Ways With Beauty Oils


by IMAGE
15th Feb 2015

Cleansing oils, lip oils, and a new super serum. How to work the hot new beauty trend with L’Occitance, Clarins and Lancome.

We’ve been devotees of L?Occitane‘s Shea range for many years now, and the newest addition to the clan – Shea Cleansing Oil, €20 ? trumps them all. This silky elixir leaves skin perfectly cleansed and feeling really nourished, and if you have combination skin, it brings back balance within a week.

It’s baffling that it’s actually taken the beauty world this long to make a lip oil, but it was worth the wait. Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, €19, a tinted blend of hazelnut, mirabelle and organic jojoba oils, creates the appearance of wet, luminous lips, while protecting them from sun, wind, and dehydration.

For those who are really serious about their skincare, one drop of Lanc’me Absolue Precious Oil Nourishing Luminous Oil, €174, is all you need. A cocktail of rose and plant essential oils, applied between serum and moisturiser, will supercharge all ingredients in your regime tenfold and bring on a glow normally the preserve of 20-somethings.
