I was so excited when I saw this launch from Clinique back in December.
Clinique’s Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm not only sounded like the perfect duo but looked beautifully presented in a double pot resembling a delicious macaroon!
One side of this pot houses a sugary exfoliator while the other contains a rich lip balm and together they are designed to leave you with kissably soft, smooth and beautiful lips.
I’m happy to confirm that In person they are just as beautiful and I happily tested out the fresh and vibrant shade of Orange Blossom.
Before I go any further, YES this looks super orange in the pics and even when swatched to a degree, but when applied to your lips it is actually a very delicate shade, providing a subtle hint of peach rather than bright orange.
So back to the product. As mentioned before, one side houses a sugar scrub to help prep and prime your lips. Beet Sugar Granules help to gently buff away dead, dry skin while Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado and Grapeseed Oil help to condition and repair your lips.
Apply to your lips sparingly and gently massage with your finger tips before using a tissue to remove the product.
Now your lips are primed to perfection its time for the super rich, hydrating balm. Aloe Leaf Extract, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Murumuru Seed Butter help to create a thick and rich balm that leaves your lips feeling soft and supple while offering a delicate sheen and gentle pop of colour.
It’s a really lovely, compact product and at £15 per pot, I think is a reasonable price point. I’ve heard people say that they think it’s a lot of money for what it is but when you consider that you’re getting a scrub and a balm then in my view, £15 is a pretty good price.
The Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm is available in six shades, inspired by the flavours of macaroons (Red Velvet, Orange Blossom, Pink Framboise, Sweet Rose, Candied Cassis and Citron Bleu) and are available now for £15 each.
