I really wanted to get the larger size as I like the packaging and it looked really nice when I first noticed it but passed. I thought the price was way too high for a lip treatment, it kept nagging at me though. The packaging is just too cool. I got lucky when my birthday gift from Sephora came around with a box with two minis! One being the Rose and one just the treatment with no color.
I have received or purchased so many lip treatments and gloss but I keep going back to this. It just "works". The hydration, the smell...
The only complaint I have is the color not staying very long, in fact it will easily be gone with a drink or light tap with a tissue. However the benefits are still on your lips and last. If the color would just stay longer I would never use another lipstick, gloss or chap stick again. Still, I am considering spending the money on the bigger size becuase even as a treatment it's the best I've had. The bit of color even for a short time is a nice perk.
I got this for free as part of a birthday package from Sephora and I'm really happy with it. I love the cinnamon smell and the hint of rose color. Very convenient to wear on days where you don't feel like wearing any makeup.
Leaves my lips looking all pretty pink...but I'm allergic to this. Put some on before I went to bed, woke up with a ring of dryness around my lips and a bad sore throat (I chew my lips and occasionally swallow product). Also the packaging is pretty, but not practical, as the balm stick easily breaks. Even if I weren't allergic I don't think I would buy this again. Price was WAY too steep and I can get better lip balms for much cheaper!
I like the way that the balm feels on my lips. I love the hint of color, and I love the scent.
I hate that it is so smushy in the tube. Even sitting at cool room temperature, the stick smushes and breaks when you apply it. It has a consistancy that is closer to potted lip balm than stick-type balms.
I wouldn't repurchase, because I didn't notice any long-lasting benefits from this over-priced "lip treatment."
Love this lip balm! Totally overpriced but the product quality is sublime. Smooth and glides on effortlessly for a healthy, natural-looking pinky lip color. Great under any lipstick. Slightly shiny and has a nice, lemongrass-y scent/taste. Melts easily and it's easy to use up the tube quickly due to how fabulous the product is. Has SPF 15 and the metal twist tube is extra secure and classy. Will buy again though because this is a truly one-of-a-kind lip product.
Mmmm . . . skittles. I'd like this stuff even if it didn't taste like candy. Got it as my Sephora birthday gift. I like the way it feels - thick but not goopy. It lasts fairly well and I love the tint. The SPF is a bonus. Lovely packaging. All around a nice product. I wouldn't buy it though - at $22, it seems a little full of itself.
I have this in every colour. I love the slight tint you get, which you can build up to be darker if you want. I like the formula and the smell. My only issue is that it melts so easily. In my purse for a night out it turns to mush (it's really not that hot where I live). I usually keep mine in the fridge in between use and that seems to make it better.
Sephora gave this Sugar Rose and Regular Sugar in a mini duo on behalf of my birthday.
Let it be said, that my lips plague me. I'm totally responsible, though...haha. I lick them at times, really not aware of that habit. They peel horribly in the Winter and the Summer, and it doesn't do any good by manually rubbing my finger along my lips, and removing any loose peel. I know, wow. So, consequently, I love having lipstick on because I don't peel them when it's on! However, at night, that's a different story.
That's when I experimented with the regular Sugar Mini and discovered that my lip's condition was 10 times better than usual. I've tried many balms, and always applied them at bed-time. I've had luck with Aquaphor, Jack Black, and Haunt balm. But I have to say, that Fresh is the Best. I don't care what the cost of the regular size would be....but when I'm finished with this duo, I'll buy Fresh!
Thanks for the birthday gift sephora cause I sure as hell wouldn't be dropping $20+ on chapstick HARHARHAR
But really this stuff isn't bad...just the price.
It gives me such a lovely hint of color but not lovely enough for me to spend $20+ on it. It smells nice & I like how you have to twist to open the cap so it's super secure.
Even after all of that I'm still not forking over my money. Sorry fresh, I'm sticking to my carmex, clinique chubby stick and MAC sheen supreme lip goodies.
I got this as a free bday gift too from Sephora. The smell is nice, and it doesn't seem to taste bad at all. I'm actually glad that it's not super tinted, I prefer having sheer/not too noticeable makeup. Spf 15 is awesome! I love that the application seems to be smooth and light, and it softens my chapped lips pretty quickly. However at the full price, would never purchase it for myself. I can buy much cheaper lip balms if I want the same sheer red tint. Plus I get bored of using the same lip balm too long, so I like the very small size it is, buying the big one would be a waste and it would sit in my room forever.
