(Updated with New Freebies) The Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balms are Here with Lots of Options for Freebies + Free Shipping

I've had my eye on these little macaron-inspired lip scrub and tinted lip balm duos from Clinique ever since I saw them on Chic Profile (which is the source of the above promo image). So I'm delighted to tell you that they're now available in the US, and you have many options in terms of free shipping and extra freebies!

The Clinique Sweet Pots retail for $19.50 each (you get a lip scrub on one side and a corresponding tinted lip balm on the other) and come in the following shades:

  • Citron Bleu (not pictured above; blue lip balm)
  • Red Velvet (red)
  • Orange Blossom (orange)
  • Candied Cassis (purple)
  • Pink Framboise (pink)
  • Sweet Rose (rose)
  • Black Honey (NOTE: exclusive to Sephora at this time; see listing below)

If you want any of these, please take a moment to read through all of your options below--I don't want you to miss out on a freebie!

1) The Sweet Pots are available on the Sephora site HEREThis is the only online retailer at this time to offer the Sweet Pot in the shade Black Honey. If you were already plotting a Sephora order (check out the crazy deals here), remember that if you're not taking advantage of code EXTRA20 to get your 20% off items on the Sephora Sale Page, you can use code MERRYMINI for a free deluxe sample of your choice on orders $25+ (those samples are awesome right now). And of course you also get your choice of 3 free samples at checkout.

2) You can now get the Sweet Pots on the Clinique website HERE, where everything ships free for the rest of the year, no code required. You will also receive a FREE full-size Long Lasting Lipstick of your choice HERE with any order ($17 value; use one of the codes on that page to select the shade you want). So that's like paying $9.75 each for a Sweet Pot and a Long Lasting Lipstick!

3) (UPDATED) At Saks Fifth Ave HERE, you can get the Sweet Pots with free shipping if you use code HOLIDAY. UPDATE: Thanks to reader Ashley for letting me know that you can use up to five codes at a time on the Saks site. So I checked and here are ALL of the codes you can use with just your Sweet Pot purchase:
(Sales tax will vary depending on where you live)

Add at least one Sweet Pot HERE to your cart and then at checkout enter ALL of the following codes:
  • HOLIDAY (free shipping)
  • VROLF24 (free sample Victor & Rolf Bon Bon Perfume)
  • BBROWN99 (free deluxe Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil)
  • YSL73 (free deluxe YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara)
All of these codes work together with ANY beauty purchase at Saks right now, no minimum order required!

4) The Sweet Pots are now available at Ulta HERE. No coupons apply for Clinique at Ulta, but if you were already plotting an Ulta order for any of the crazy deals I mentioned HERE, remember you get this free 15-piece bag HERE with orders $50+ right now, plus your usual 3 free samples and free shipping on orders $50+ as always.

5) Nordstrom also has the Sweet Pots HERE, and you get free shipping on all orders (no minimum required) plus your choice of 3 free samples at checkout (they have some good choices right now). Also, don't forget about the deals on their beauty sale page here.

I hope that helps make your options a bit more clear right now! And if you end up ordering one (or more) of these, I would LOVE to hear which shade(s) you got. I'm having a really hard time deciding! Oh, and before I forget, Really Ree has a closer look at Pink Framboise HERE, if you want see what the inside of these looks like.


  1. G, I love you, but you are KILLING my wallet! :-D

    1. If I had a dime for every time I've heard that between Black Friday and now, I would be RICH, I tell you! Lol!!! ;)

  2. Ahh -- this is one of those things I definitely don't need but just really, really want to have!! I can't decide between the Casis and the Bleu!

    1. Yep, me too! Lol! And I'm also eyeing those shades! Ugh. :)

  3. You can stack up to 5 codes at Saks. So one can actually apply all 3 of the codes listed to purchase one item.

    1. Omg how did I not know that?? THANK YOU!! Will update my post! xo

  4. what color do you think would be the best? i'm interested in the blue- do you think it will be a sheer color?

  5. Saks offers a 10% code to sign up for emails. It should pop up if you go incognito on Google Chrome. That can be used as the fifth code.

  6. I have always wanted to try the Jack Black lip balm everyone raves about, what a perfect opportunity to do so.

  7. Omg want. Nuff said! LoL :) I love Clinique already, their 3 step skincare has improved my complexion like no other, their matte lippies don't dry my lips, and their concealer/foundation is my HG! Not to mention killer freebies and deals. That one you posted before Xmas with the free full size mild facial cleanser was the thank you for your continued hard work G! Your poor fingers must be exhausted from all the typing!

  8. Hi G, I just placed an order at Clinique and was able to use the $30 dollar credit from Gilt City you posted a few days back. It was supposed to be valid until the 25th but I was able to apply it to my order.

  9. Hi thanks for the information...I was trying to buy the samples are showing sold out

  10. Looks like the YSL and Viktor & Rolf samples are gone from Nordstrom, but the Bobbi Brown one still shows up!
