Received this free, otherwise it would have went right back at the price they charge for it.....don't get the hype. I prefer the Burts Bees Red Dahlia...slight more tint to it, and not overly sweet-, oh, and 1/3 the price.....
Edit: Ok, after having a terrible accident burning my face, this was the only lip color product I was able to wear for almost a month....so I have to say, for people with sensitive lips, this is definitely a winner.....still too pricey, and as long as my lips aren't sensitive, I don't know if I would repurchase.....
I got this product free, but I'd never buy it. I don't know if it's just this one, but I know the basic lip treatment is the same, minus the rose tint.
Is so gross! it smells honestly, like they packaged a lemon meringue pie, but to the point where it gives me a headache. Overly sweet smells are enough that I don't want the product anymore.
However, love that it's SPF 15, and the texture is GORGEOUS.
So, get past the fragrance, and your golden.
I absolutely love Sugar Rose. It makes my lips feel so moisturized and plump. It isn't slick or greasy, but creates an incredible smoothness to my lips. I haven't needed to exfoliate my lips in quite a while. This appears to be red, but actually the product is so sheer, I can't necessarily see it, but I can feel it. Hands down, the best lip treatment packaging ever...you simply unscrew the cap to access the product.
I love FreshSugar Rose Lip treatment! I've recently purchased because I had a giftcard, and fell in love!
lovely tint (very naturaly, but pleasantly pink)
lips felt very soft and supple
stayed on for hours!
awesome screw packaging so the cap wont come off
Super pricy! wouldn't have bought it if I didn't have a gift card. But maybe Ill splurge because it's THAT good.
The Sugar Rose tinted lip treatment gives a sheer finish/wash of colour. that is nice. The feel is sort of thick though, and a tad waxy. I will enjoy this tube, but I don't think I would repurchase.
I rec'd a little sample of this from Sephora. Although it's called "tinted," it really hasn't much color at all. I love that it's in a lipstick type tube, rather than one of those horrible dipstick things; and I especially love that it has a screw together top and bottom, as the cover won't come off in a purse or pocket. The taste/scent is a wonderful citrus. It feels good, not goopy. The price is quite ridiculous, tho -- $22.50 for .15 oz. -- so, for that reason, and the fact that it has no color, I won't be purchasing.
I love how smooth and moisturizing it is! The sheer, rosy colour is perfect to boost your look without looking too overdone. It also smells so good! The only reason why I wouldn't buy again is the price. I got this as a gift but I really don't think it's worth purchasing again. They are giving a mini Sugar Rose and the mini Sugar Lip treatment as a birthday gift at Sephora (as of March 2012)... so get one of your own when your birthday rolls around! I certainly did!
As an avid fan of lip balms, I really wanted to like this product. After a month of having this as part of my daily routine, I can safely say with good conscience that it is not worth the hype. It sat on my lips like lipstick. It was not as hydrating as I hoped. It did nothing for my lips. I did think the packaging was brilliant and the subtle hint of rose color fabulous, but those pros were not enough for me to repurchase at $22.50 a pop.
I thought I would give this another try, so the other day I put it on under my favorite lipglass. As much as I love Lust lipglass from Mac, the formula dries out my lips and I begin to chap like crazy after just 2-3 hrs. Wow, somehow it's the only thing that keeps my lipglass sealed in place - it's the perfect primer. Now, if I look at this as a primer and not a tinted lip balm, I can wrap my mind around spending the hefty price.
What I love about this product:
-it is moisturizing
-it has an appetizing scent
-the cap twists on so no danger of it coming off
What I don't like about the product:
-the tint is too pink and really doesn't look good on my lips
I have all four colors of this product (rose, passion, honey and plum) and this one is my FAVORITE!!!! It has the most AMAZING scent; very lemony and refreshing.
The formula is very soft and moisturizing, though you have to be careful not to mush it it's so soft. The rose color is PERFECT for those days I want some color on my lips but I want it to be super subtle and not heavy.
The container is some sort of very interesting metal (I think) and has a screw on lid which i think it great, I hate when lip products burst open in my bag, ESPECIALLY the more expensive ones!
I love all four colors to death and though I have the mini ones I think they'll last me a good long time so I won't need to repurchase anytime soon :)
