Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Coral Review and Swatches

I'm beginning to see what the hype is all about...

I don't generally care about lip balm. My lips don't usually get dry, so it was never a necessity for me. But Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatments ($22.50) have been getting SO much buzz for SO long that I thought I must be missing something.

Turns out I was. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Coral gives a gorgeous tint, leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth, and smells delicious.

Plus, it includes SPF 15 to help combat sun damage and wrinkles. Considering how much your lips show age, I'm surprised more lip products don't contain SPF.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 is available in six shades. The newest shade, Coral, is much more pigmented than the popular Rose version.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Rose is pretty, but it is very subtle. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Coral, on the other hand, gives a nice slick of color that amps up your naturally gorgeous look.

I love the moisturizing properties and soft, glossy color of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15, but I have two big problems with this product:

1. The price is very high for a tinted lip balm. I don't think I can rationalize paying $22.50 for Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Coral when my lips aren't dry to begin with. I received mini versions of the Rose and Clear shades as my Beauty Insider Birthday Gift from Sephora, so I think I'm just going to use those and return the Coral, even though I prefer that color.

2. Although the packaging is beautiful, the cap is annoying to get off. You have to unscrew it! I would much rather just pull it off than twist it every time. I know, big deal, right? But at this high of a price, I want everything about this balm to be perfect.

Bottom Line: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Coral is a gorgeous shade that leaves your lips delectably soft and smooth. Unfortunately, it is very expensive and the packaging isn't ideal. I like this product overall, but I don't think I will repurchase because I don't use lip balm that frequently.  Lip balm lovers, on the other hand, might consider this as a luxe, delicious way to give their lips a treat.

  1. Thanks for the review! Makeupalley.com didn't have anything on it, but you did. (I'm 47, need the moisture, and love this product.)
