How to use this item:
1. To hydrate the lips
Is there anything more beautiful than luscious lips? Well-hydrated ones at any rate! Simply apply a little bit onto your lips with clean fingertips before bed every night and they'll be supple enough to shout from mountaintops all year long.
2. To hydrate the skin
Smooth the oil onto your dry skin for a lush, creamy sensation or use it sparingly on oily skin for balancing out. Apply liberally with soft fingers around excessively dry patches of skin before bedtime to help soothe inflammation caused by irritation from sensitive skin conditions.
