Clinique describes them as:
A sweet indulgence lips can’t resist. 2-in-1 pampering treat is a sugar-smoothing scrub on one side; sheer, tinted moisturizing balm on the other. Together, it’s the sweetest way to soft, kissable lips.
They come in 6 colours though I would say the last one (citron bleu is more a non-colour and not available in Australia)
Colours that they come in
They retail for A$40. In the USA, they are US$19.50.
What are they?
Basically they are little pots of sugar lip scrubs and slightly tinted lip balm. They are unscented which is nice for a change. I sometimes find sickly sweet lip balms off putting.
Their very compact and fit in the palm of my hand as you will see in the photos below.
It's a twist concept. Shaped like a macaroon, you twist one side for the balm, one side for the lip scrub.
You could try to apply the product directly to your lips, but unless you have big luscious pouty lips, it's going to get messy
I like them! I have very very chapped lips and I usually use ELF's lip exfoliant but that is very gritty. and not very moisturising (it must be getting old - gross!). I've also used Bite Beauty's lip scrub, which works, but leaves a very oily texture behind.
This is perfect Clinique. Nice, clean and functional. It's easy to carry around (which is a huge plus because you can use the lip scrub then apply your favorite bright lipstick on top). The colour that I received for review 04 Cassis, gives me just enough colour on the lips to look more made up.
Both lip scrub and lip balm work well. There is no taste, no scent.
My only gripe... I'm a germaphobe, so I have been carrying cotton buds with me so that I can apply this without digging my fingers in. But that's just me. I suppose you could always sanitise your hands before you do it.
A$40 seems a bit steep for something you can make yourself from Vaseline and sugar, but it's the design and convenience of this product that makes me want to get more. For goodness sakes! Their so cute.
You can see the very tiny sugar particles in it. Small enough to do the job!
CUTE!!! I think these are very handy on the go. I like ELF's Lip exfoliator in a lipstick format but that's way too rough and not as moisturising. Will you give it a try? Macaroons from Clinque!
