Today I’m gonna review my current favorite lip balm, Fresh SUGAR Rose Lip Treatment that I bought in Sephora Singapore.. ^^
This is the product description in the website:

Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 is scientifically proven to keep lips moisturized for up to 6 hours after initial application.*
It’s not just a lip balm, it’s a tinted one with SPF 15. Bonus point!
My friend Pat told me about how she loves this and how she usually used it before going to bed, after she woke up her lips is still moist. I know it’s a bit on the pricey side for a lip balm (S$29 or around Rp 227.000), but it got me curious so I think I have to try it as well.. :D
To open it, I need to twist it, so it’s not just pop-open like that. The packaging is silvery-purple and quite solid (not plastic).
Content and Swatch
It’s almost similar to a lipstick, right? The color is fresh berry rose and although it looks intense, actually it’s pretty sheer in the swatch. There are other shade options available at that time, but when I saw the word ROSE in it, I was completely hooked.
See? Just a hint of color there. Oh, but the texture! I looovee.. the texture.. ^^ When I apply it on my lips, it just glides on and feels really light, not heavy at all. It smells like lemon candy, but it’s tasteless (yes I lick it haha).
On my lips…
Before – After
The problem with my lips, when I’m in a room with full AC for long hours, it can get dry and flaky. After applying the Fresh Lip Treatment, my lips got so hydrated and moist without being waxy or buttery, I love it!
Although it vanishes when I eat something, but when it’s left untouched, it will stay on and not fade away. The rose color doesn’t look too obvious, just a sheer rosy tint.
I can’t really tell about how the effect of SPF 15 on my lips, but I can tell you I feel safer already. It’s not like I can rub sunblock on my lips, haha.. :P
I think it’s a perfect for daily day-time use and as pre-lipstick base to keep my lips moisturized for a longer period. Is it worth it for such money? Well, it is for me. :)
