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.
Really moisturizing and gives a beautiful, healthy rosy tint. Love the smell, too.
One bad thing is that when you use up most of it toward the end of the stick, it kind of slides off the twisty stick and is very hard to apply without all the product falling off and moving around.
I agree with everyone else $22.50 is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ONE LIP BALM that is the size of your finger. If you're like me and use it several times a day, it only lasts about a month. They needa make this more affordable and more people will come back for more. I suggest hunting around online for it for cheaper prices.
Like so many others, I got this as a birthday gift at Sephora. I am relatively new to higher end makeup and hadn't heard of this brand before this. That said, I really do like the product. I am just begining to experiment with bolder colors on my lips and the sheer red tint is just enough "vavoom" color to work for me. My lips feel incredibly soft after wearing this or the regular sugar balm that came with it and that really is my favorite part of this product. I also really love the screw-shut packaging. I don't have to worry that the cap is going to come off in my purse and ruin the product.
The downside is that the full size of this is really expensive. I would have to be really sure that this is something I can't live without in order to drop $22+ for a single stick of lip balm.
I got the birthday gift from Sephora, but I would never spend anywhere near retail for this. The color is sublime but there are bazillions of colored balms just as pretty for about 1/4 of the price. Nothing special. Not extra moisturizing or anything.
