Clinique’s new Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm ($19.50) range doesn’t offer SPF protection, but it does get bonus points for acting as a beauty treatment and lip color all in one. The 2-in-1 pots feature a sugar-smoothing scrub on one side and a sheer, tinted moisturizing balm in summery colors on the other.



Get glossy

Combine lip gloss and sunscreen with Hawaiian Tropic’s Island Berry Sunkissed Moisturising Lip Gloss SPF25 (£6, approximately $8.60). The formula contains Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter and Vitamins A, C & E for 12-hour moisturizing and has a summery berry flavor.
