A lip balm or oil should be a regular part of your bed time routine, because during the night your skin rises in temperature to flush out toxins and produce new skin cells. A good moisturising lip product will help keep those new skin cells smooth and healthy.

An effective lip moisturizer needs to do what sebum – your skin’s natural oil – does for the rest of your skin, and that is to keep moisture in and protect your lips from drying environmental conditions. 

Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum is an overnight treatment that rescues lips from the stressors of the day. Its weightless and non greasy texture combines the best of a serum and a treatment oil, and its plush applicator feels like a pillow for your lips as it glides over lip contours.

Infused with nourishing hydrators and naturally derived Camellia, Rose and Lavender Oils and collagen filling spheres, it heals and reduces the effects of dryness, leaving lips feeling soft, supple and plumped with moisture.

For those who prefer fragrance free lip products, this serum-oil is perfume free and does not have an aftertaste.

Final Verdict

Do I think it’s worth getting? Let me put it this way, I am a strong advocate on the benefits of keeping ones lips moisturised, especially at night. While you can most certainly use other products available in the market, I personally prefer using a lip oil over a balm and it’s also important to bear in mind that not all lip products are created equal.

To me, I think it’s something worth getting. Priced at $48, it is affordable and I find that it stays on my lips longer and in the morning, my lips look really smooth and moisturised.

The Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil-Serum is available at Sephora and Sephora online as well all Estée Lauder stores islandwide and retails for $48.
