I have recently grown fond of Hourglass products. They are pricey but quality, very unusual (like their blushes), and always look like a piece of art. I have been looking at Lip Treatment Oil for a while – I am following pretty much all lip treatment products because of my constant issues with chapped lips. However, I hesitated to buy because, in my opinion, it is insanely priced: 0.25 oz. of lip oil cost $42. Eventually I decided to try it – winters are cold and windy in D.C., and my lips were so dry and cracked I couldn’t wear a lipstick anymore.
So, first of all, let me tell you what I learned about Hourglass lip oil. According to description, this product has 14 oils: from geranium to jojoba. Also, it has some vitamins, particularly, vitamins A, B5, C, and E. Finally, it has an ingredient called viamerine which supposedly helps with wrinkles. You can find more information regarding ingredients on Hourglass and Sephora websites. Also I posted a picture of the back of the box with the full list of ingredients.
The case of the lip oil is stunning – I think it’s the fanciest and most luxurious lip treatment product I’ve ever owned. The case is sleek and classy, and the dispenser tip – oh, it’s amazing. It is gold-plated (24 karat) and antibacterial. To dispense oil, you need to remove the plastic tip and using your index finger press on the grooved surface behind the tip to dispense the product. The applicator is great: it is hygienic and doesn’t tickle like other applicator wands.
