Speed Review: Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm

I just realised that without any intention at all, my blog has been very monochrome over the past week so wanted to inject some colour today.

I couldn't resist sharing details of the return of Clarins' bestselling Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm, back by popular demand from June. Apparently the brand's quickest selling limited edition lip formula ever, I've become absolutely hooked on the balm and can certainly see why they proved so popular the first time around. The balms are easy & smooth to apply in a classic lipstick bullet format and I love the juicy, lollipop transparency of each balm. From clear to a sheer hint of colour, there are three shades (Crystal Coral, Crystal Red and Crystal) with the coloured versions based on a lip caring plant based pigment, along with other hydrating ingredients. I can't stop applying the balm purely because it's such a joy to use- it's so moisturising that I certainly don't need to be using it to the extent that I am!

By far the most chic lipbalms which I've come across in a while, I'd definitely be willing to pay £16.50.


  1. These look similar to DuWops Iced Teas which I absolutely love. These do look rather beautiful, will definitely check them out. x

  2. These look gorgeous,so unusual! I love the instant smooth lipgloss'so will definitely be on the lookout for these :) xxx

  3. They are as amazing as they look! x
