Aside from face masks, lip care products are my favourite beauty things to purchase. I’m just obsessed with them and always have so many on the go, plus a massive stash waiting in the background. When I saw last month that Gisou had released a lip oil, I knew I had to try it immediately, as the brand has been on my wish list for a while now. It did not disappoint.The Gisou Honey-Infused Lip Oil (£24 from Gisou) has such a dreamy formulation and it’s so aesthetically pleasing too. Just look at that pink and those curves! It is currently sold out, but there will be more stock soon! I have loved honey in skincare for a LONG time, as it has so many incredible benefits and it’s a natural way to heal, nourish and fortify the skin.
A lip oil is a lot more nourishing on your lips that a lip balm or lip mask, I find. It gives such a lovely sheen to the lips too. This lip oil from Gisou isn’t at all sticky – something a lot of lip oils fail on. It’s smooth and glossy and it sinks into the lips, plumping and conditioning them to perfection. It’s what i’ve been relying on over the past week when i’ve had Covid and Tonsillitis, to repair the damage they did to my lips by chapping and cracking them. This lip oil uses Mirsalehi Honey in its formula, which is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Omegas 3, 6 and 9 aplenty. It is great nourishment for the skin, helps prevent moisture loss, heals and is also a powerful antioxidant.This lip oil also contains hydrating and plumping Hyaluronic Acid. It’s low molecular HA, so it is able to penetrate deeper into the skin to intensely hydrate and plump the lips with moisture. There’s also Buriti Fruit Oil and Blueberry Seed Oil, which is again rich in those Omegas and lipids to regenerate and repair dry, chapped lips, whilst also strengthening the skin barrier to keep them comfortable. It’s just such a dreamy lip oil to use, and the addition of honey makes it feel that little bit thicker and more indulgent.The benefits of honey in skincare are abundant. It’s a great moisturiser and really nourishes and strengthens the skin. It also has great antibacterial properties, making it a great natural skin healer. I can’t get enough of honey in skincare and there are so many honey face masks I love. If you have never tried a honey skincare product, this could be a great introduction. Everybody needs a great lip care product and this is definitely that! Yes, Gisou is a much hyped brand, but my first buy from them has proven that it’s justified. I can’t wait to try more products from the brand. I got a tiny minature hair oil sample with my lip oil purchase and I think i’m going to have to buy the full-size!
