A sweetly decadent blend of coffee, vanilla and sandalwood.

The story: Step into a dark library or a coffee shop off the beaten path, with hardwood floors and the whisper of baked goods and ancient texts floating in the air. Notes of coffee meld smoothly with vanilla and sandalwood.

The product: A moisturising lip balm made with organic shea butter and pure essential oils. The eco-friendly tin contains over twice as much as a standard plastic tube.

Customer Reviews

Like a coffee shop!

The balm is super moisturising and has a nice smooth texture, it reminds me of those coffee beans covered in chocolate, it's a very warm and deep scent.

It’s no secret (society) how much I love this one

If I was going to enter a secret society it would be to worship this lip balm! I am a huge huge fan of dark academia and southern gothic fiction, so I’m writing this love letter to a lip balm in the hopes that there will be more like it down the road! The literary lip balm aesthetic is perfectly suited to all things secret society/academia related, and the scent/flavour of coffee, vanilla and sandalwood brings up images of Felicity reading in A Lesson in Vengeance or Alex running from ghosts in Ninth House. The quality is, as always, incredible and my lips are smooth and ready to whisper and plot to my hearts content.
