Lips: Decleor Intense Nutrition Luxuriant Nourishing Balm
Using a multi-sensorial oil-in-balm texture, this nourishing lip balm deeply hydrates dry, chapped lips. The formula—which was inspired by the power of nature—calls on Egyptian Marjoram essential oil, macadamia butter, and shea butter to provide comforting relief leaving lips soft and protected.
