The lip serum is enriched with vitamin A and E, olive and grapeseed oil. The serum is clear and thick and when used with wand (which isn’t included), it improves fine lines around the lip, nourishes the skin and improves lips. I didn’t have the wand and I used this lip serum like I would any other lip balm. I didn’t notice any other benefit than soft and moisturized lips. I guess if you don’t have the wand, this is basically an overpriced lip balm.
