Between frequent product testing and weather conditions my lips can get really dry. Painfully so sometimes. I was interested to see how the new Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil would work. Now it is on the splurge side of beauty products but for those of you that battle lip dryness it is worth every penny and here is why.
The Hourglass Lip Treatment Oil has a soft herbal scent due to the lavender and eucalyptus, it’s not overpowering and it feels very refreshing. The actual treatment has a very dense feel like a heavy gloss with a slightly tacky finish.
The finger-free applicator is plated with 24k gold, and the tip is antibacterial! The tip has a cooling effect during application and feels amazing on dry parched lips. I like how lightweight it feels on my lips but its so emollient my lips instantly start to feel better. This product works amazingly well on dry, or cracked lips. Within minutes any discomfort from my dry lips was gone and within hours my lips not only felt better but looked better. I like to apply it before bed and again in the morning. Since I started using it I haven’t had any of my usual issues with dry or chapped lips. It’s a really great treatment if you have issues with dry or chapped lips its definitely worth checking out.
