Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments are "a hydrating lip product that nourishes, protects, and plumps lips." Ingredients: sugar, a blend of nourishing oils (meadowfoam seed, black currant, seed avocado, and jojoba), grapeseed polyphenols, avobenzone and octinoxate. The sugar prevents moisture loss, the oils deeply moisturize dry areas, grapeseed polyphenols protect, smooth, and soften, and the avobenzone and octinoxate provide SPF 15 sun protection.
Fresh has 7 tinted lip treatments and one clear lip treatment for a total of eight choices, each at $22.50.

I received this Beauty Insiders mini set as my Sephora birthday gift. It came with a mini size "Sugar" and "Rose" lip treatment. It is pretty much a lip balm, one is clear and the other is a rosy pink tinted lip balm.
They are very nourishing and my lips do feel soft and smooth after use. Honestly, this is not my first choice for when my lips are dry. I prefer to use a lip butter or rose salve. I use these lip treatments when my lips are normal, but could use a little moisture boost. I did not notice any lip plumping properties when it was applied.
I absolutely love the packaging! The lip balms come in a metal case that can twist the product up. It feels so classy and is pretty neat. Apart from Sugar, all the tinted balms come in a case with the color it corresponds too. Sugar comes in a brown case, although the balm is clear.
All of them have a sweet lemony scent. It makes sense for the clear balm, but I guess I expected a rose scent for the Rose tinted balm. The lemon scent does indeed make my lips feel "fresh".

Rose swatches like a nice rosy pink, but barely shows a hint of color on my lips. Obviously Sugar will appear clear. 
Would I repurchase? No, I don't think I can justify paying $22.50 for a lip balm. There are plenty other lip products out there that are similar or even better then these. However, it is always nice to have a "high end" looking lip balm.

  2. I like the packaging, but it is quite costly for a lip balm

  3. I got the set for my birthday too, and I actually really like the formula when my lips are dry but even I can't justify spending that kind of money on a lip balm. LOL Not when I have a Neutrogena one that I like almost as much. My friend swears by the Sugar ones, though. I think she has them in every shade.

  4. I haven't tried the products yet, was hoping to get it for my Sephora bday gift but got a different item. I've heard lots of great things! I agree that the high price will deter most people from purchasing this but you never know. I am your newest follower from my Bright Side Beauty blog hop. Thanks for joining in last weekend. Your blog got the most views and I sent you an email with a co-hosting invite so keep a look out, it has been known to end up in spam boxes from time to time. I look forward to reading more!

  8. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fresh sugar lip balm. Never really liked the Rose one. But I'm with you- I'd never buy it for full price. I really hope that Sephora has this again for the birthday gift though. Mine is next month, and I really do love how this feels on my lips. Just can't justify the price b/c there are others that feel almost as nice for a fraction of the price.

    1. I went to get my birthday gift at Sephora this week, and since my Sephora was still stocked up with the Fresh Sugar, they gave me the choice between that and this years gift, the Benefit They're Real Mascara and Watts Up. I chose the latter since I already have the lip balm =)
