The weathers getting warmer and drier and, as you might already know, our lips get fairly dehydrated during this period. They tend to retaliate by getting dry, cracked and thus, they reject our longest-lasting matte lipstick.
This is usually the season I stack my shelves with fruity lip balms, and since I have an unhealthy addiction with lip balms, you will see them everywhere!
Just like winter during summer our lips require a lot of care and attention, The skin on your lips is significantly thinner than that on the rest of our body which is why during the summer months it is more susceptible to the damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. A good lip balm can help with loss of surface moisture too.
Talking about lip treatments and lip balms, I’ve recently been introduced to, Kiehl’s who have launched “Love Oil” For Lips, a lightweight formula infused with lip-loving ingredients like Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil and Acerola Cherry Extract. The best part? There are four pigmented options to tint your lips with glossy color, so you won’t have to sacrifice your love for pigment.
About the Product
Inspired by the 1960’s Summer of Love, the Kiehls lightweight lip oils boost moisture for softer, smoother lips. Their glow-infusing lip treatment provides the replenishment of an oil with the shine of a lip gloss. Add a natural-looking luster with our Untinted formula or smooth on a hint of color with a tinted lip oil.

What I love about them is that their non-sticky and extremely hydrating with their natural ingredients coming from Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil, and Acerola Cherry Extract.
Untinted Lip Oil – A clear and transparent one, hydrating and ideal for moisturizing your lips when you don’t want any pigmentation, ideal before sleeping or when at home.
Midnight Orchid Lip Oil – A slightly and subtly darker pigmented lip oil, perfect to wear during your casual night outs, giving a hint of maroon pigmentation.
Botanical Blush Lip Oil – A baby pink pigmented lip oil, that’s perfect for your summer casual mornings!
Note: For those with highly pigmented lips, or dark lips these shades will show very less, you can only see a hint of the color. But what I love about them are the hydrating benefits which are awesome for the lips during summer!
This is a summer must have and I’m switching to lip oils from lip balms. They give a nice summery glossy feel to your lips!
