Product Review: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

By Glinda

Having heard the hype about this lip balm, I was excited to receive it as a “birthday gift” from Sephora.  Of course I had to buy something to get my gift, but whatever.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t quite live up.

It does go on nicely, I will give it that.  It also has a screw-on cap that makes it perfect for purses.

But that’s about all.

I’m not a fan of lemon scents, so it immediately gets a minus from me on that, although some of you may love it.

I don’t find this product to be long-lasting in any way.  If there is one thing I look for in a lip balm, it is that I don’t have to keep reapplying it.  For me, this stuff lasts for about a half hour, and then my lips feel as dry as if I’d never put anything on at all.  BIG minus.

Chapstick will save you a bunch of money and works better.

Or, if you prefer pricey balms, I highly recommend this one.

    I actually have had the opposite experience with the Fresh lip treatment (though my balm of choice is the Rose version). It lasted forever for me, and I didn’t mind the smell in the least.

    I hate the price, a lot – I actually wound up spending more or two other lip treatments that I wanted to use to sub in – one of them I wound up being allergic to, and the other was a set of three minis (Korres, which I highly recommend as well). I haven’t been able to bring myself to spend the bank on the Fresh again, but I may have to when my current balm runs out. It’s the best for what I want from a lip treatment, even if it is spendy.
