Review: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

There's probably a bunch of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment reviews online since Sephora has been giving these out as birthday deluxe samples to all Beauty Insiders. But I'll like to review them nevertheless.

Compared with a full size lipstick

This is a deluxe sample size product, not full size. But they didn't skimp on the packaging at all. Comes in a hardy metallic twist lock tube to ensure the cap doesn't fly off. The inner tube turns separately to twist the product out. I'm definitely very impress with the packaging. =)

The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is a clear lip balm retailing at $22 for the full size. It leaves your lips super glossy without feeling heavy despite the beeswax and other oil ingredients. I don't think it has the 6 hours lasting power as Fresh claims but it stays on long enough and doesn't make any lip color or gloss slip and slide too much. Also comes with SPF 15 which seems to be the new standard for lip balms nowadays.

You can see that the side of the tube nips at the balm stick

It has a citrus scent that smells sweet but not overpowering. Actually it was the scent that jogged my memory and made me consider the Blistex Complete Moisture as a very close dupe. Very close dupe except the Blistex isn't as glossy, but it has the same melt on your lips texture.One huge con with the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is that the balm is too soft that the product breaks and smears all over the tube. You have to make sure you don't twist too much product out at once and be mindful of the amount of pressure you use to apply, otherwise the whole tube can break off with application. This is probably my biggest pet peeve with lipsticks. Don't think I'll repurchase, although I have read that the full size is a lot better in that aspect.

Did you get yours at Sephora? What did you think? I haven't tried the tinted one yet. Will see how that works out.
