Exfoliating Lip Balm - Cotton Candy Ice Cream *Classic
Is it a scrub? Is it a lip balm? It’s both! Our exfoliating lip balm contains delicate sugar crystals that will gently smooth away rough skin from your lips while leaving them deliciously moisturized.
But what exactly do you *do* with an exfoliating lip balm?
Apply the same amount as you would lip balm and gently massage into your lips. You can wipe it off after a few minutes, but we recommend to keep working in until it’s absorbed to get the full benefit of all the oils and butters in our formula. And yes, you can lick off any extra scrubby bits too!
About the flavor: Do you remember the first time you were treated to a scoop at your local ice cream parlour and you realized that there were more flavours beyond chocolate and vanilla? I think a lot of our minds were blown that day, especially when we discovered that cotton candy came in ice cream form! This sweet, sugary flavour is like nostalgia in a tube and is one of our best-sellers!
- This product isn't for use in the shower or bath and must be kept away from water and dampness.
- It's best to keep this product cool before using and it can be popped into the fridge for 15 minutes if ever the heat has made it a bit soft.
- A little goes a long way! We don't recommend twisting up too much of the product as it might cause it to crumble.
- Your lips are delicate so scrub gently. This product has a cumulative effect, so if your lips are very rough, you'll see them get progressively smoother if you keep using our exfoliating lip balm over time.
- If your lips are broken or bleeding, wait until they've healed to use this product as applying it to broken skin may cause further irritation. And if at any point, irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Size: 4.25g (0.15oz) tube
Ingredients: sucrose, theobroma cacao seed butter, cera alba (beeswax), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, caprylic/capric/myristic/stearic triglyceride, natural aroma (flavor), tocopherol
WHAT GOES INTO EACH TUBE OF ECLAIR LIPS?
The formula consists of natural ingredients like cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil, vitamin E and delicious natural flavors!
Here is the full ingredient list you’ll find on the labels: theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, caprylic/capric/myristic/stearic glycerides, aroma (flavor), tocopherol
SO WHAT DO THESE INGREDIENTS DO?
COCOA BUTTER: we feel this one is a miracle ingredient. You know why? It’s one of the main ingredients in chocolate. And chocolate is one of the wonderful miracles I enjoy in this life. And it’s awesome for even more reasons too! In my balm, it’s responsible to creating a wonderful protective layer that can help moisturize your lips even in the harshest climates. (Ahem, Canadian winters – you know I’m talkin’ ’bout you!) It’s also how I get that yummy chocolate smell.
BEESWAX: one of the key elements in creating that perfect consistency on your lips that stays put, keeps your lip balm solid so it doesn’t turn into a pile of guck at room temperature and it smells nice, too!
COCONUT OIL: another amazing ingredient that moisturizes and softens and can stand up to the weather when it’s being a jerk. And yes, it smells as amazing as it sounds – warm and tropical and delicious!
CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC/MYRISTIC/STEARIC TRIGLYCERIDES: this one might sound perplexing, but it’s actually a vegetable-based butter that helps give your lip balm that luxurious feel.
FLAVOURS: our flavours are specifically formulated to be used in lip balm, are cruelty and paraben-free and many of them are also natural, organic and food grade. But here is the funny thing – although they are called flavours, they don’t have much taste at all. So although your tube might smell like a slice of Banana Cream Pie, it won’t taste like one, of much of anything else, on your lips, but it will smell amazing under your nose!
VITAMIN E: not only is this great for your skin and helping protect against environmental damage, it helps boost the shelf life of our lip balm.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS PEANUT/DAIRY/GLUTEN/EGG/FISH FREE??
While we don’t specifically add any peanut/dairy/gluten/egg or fish products to our formulations, some of our ingredients may have come into contact with these allergens while being processed by one of our suppliers.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN?
Since our formula contains beeswax, it is not considered vegan. Otherwise though, the rest of our ingredient list is vegan.
ARE THERE ANY PRESERVATIVES IN ECLAIR LIPS?
One thing you’ll notice is that Eclair Lips is preservative free – woot! By sticking to a formula of strictly oils, waxes and butters that don’t require preservation, and giving them an extra little shelf-life boost with Vitamin E, we can keep things simple and natural.
WHY ONLY 12-24 MONTHS? I’VE HAD OTHER LIP BALMS THAT HAVE LASTED FOR YEARS!
Yup, I’ve had lip balms that have lasted that long too, and those that do usually have some extra ingredients to extend the shelf life. One of the things about using natural ingredients is that they will behave like natural ingredients. So if you had an open bottle oil you used that one time you tried a new recipe hanging around your kitchen for a long time, it would eventually go rancid, start to smell off and have a strange sticky consistency. And it works the same way for the lip balm.
OK, SO I FOUND A LOOPHOLE AROUND THE NO EATING THING AND LICKED MY LIPS, AND THE BALM ISN’T SWEET! HOW COME?
It all comes back down to this whole thing about not eating your lip balm. Since it’s not meant to be eaten, I don’t sweeten it. And besides, even if I did, it would just encourage you to lick your lips, and that my friend, will make them dry and chapped, which is pretty counter-productive. So just follow my advice: sniff, apply and enjoy.

I love that this is a scrub and a balm. It feels lovely, and I don't feel the need to scrub off the crystals. And I love the flavor!
