I got this for free as a birthday gift from Sephora. Nice little balm that makes you feel luxurious every time you put it on. Smooth creamy texture and scent is yummy and the look and feel of the packaging is wonderful with its screw on cap. But I believe this is one of those items that looks great, but not practical. I notice how fragile it is because of how the cream sits in the tube. There is no reinforcement to hold the cream in place. There's a gap around the cream while in the tube so whenever you press this against your lips, it will slightly bend in high temperatures. And on a hot day? Oh say hello to a broken balm. hmmm no. I don't want to deal with that mess. I'm sticking to my Shiseido Water in Lip balm. Texture is about the same and for half the price.

I stayed away from this product since the price is outrageous for a lip balm, but after getting one from Sephora for my Bday and trying it for free...I see why people love this!! So I am swearing at myself for considering it...but I might just have to buy this after it runs out...I love it. Dam you Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment for being way tooooo expensive!!! but I love it!

I am a lip balm-aholic and I really liked this. I received a mini original and rose tint Sugar as my bday gift from Sephora. I would never buy the retail one, I just couldn't spend that kinda cash for a lip balm. But I really like this formula. For me it's just thick enough, not greasy and feels like it coats my lips nicely. I also like that it's not minty but to me has a bit of citrusy scent to it.

Received this as my Beauty Insider Birthday Gift. I used up the little tube within about two weeks, so the balm does not last very long (I understand I had mini versions). The balm itself is nice, but I don't think it's worth what it costs. The balm melts so quickly/easily, causing it to break off. I don't feel like it moisturizes as well as it could. I do love the packaging - I love that it's a screw on cap rather than a traditional, pop-off cap.

I am on my second tube of this (the first one was purchased and used up years ago, so I thought Id retry) and I am not going to repurchase.
While it is a nice lip balm that does leave my lips soft and it isnt sticky and it is colorless, it just doesnt last long enough on me. I have to reapply this literally every hour, which is just too much hassle when I have other balms that are cheaper and work well that last longer.
The tube is very nice and heavy, it screws in.
Also, be aware that this will MELT badly if you leave it in a hot area or direct sunlight.

I don't really use a lot of make up, mostly just eyeliner and anything for my lips. So looking for a really good lip moisturizer was something I have been doing for quite a while. I always need to keep my lips moisturized cause if not they tend to chap. I have tried a lot, expensive and cheap ones. Then I read about this on some beauty blog and decided to give it a try. I was a little turned off by the price. It keeps my lips moisturized and doesn't make them feel sticky, which is something I really can't stand, plus it has SPF which is always a good thing for me. The packaging is really nice. The negatives about it for me would be...first, the smell. It reminds me of lemon car air freshener, which I really don't like. Although after some time, I don't notice it anymore. And second would be that if you keep it somewhere hot, the stick itself tends to melt and might break off. It's okay, but there might be better ones out there. There are more negatives than positives in my opinion.

I was beyond thrilled to discover that the mini Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment was the Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift for February (the fabulous month of my birth). Who doesn't love a free birthday gift!?!? Considering all the hype around this product, I had some pretty high expectations - Was this it? Had my Holy Grail lip product been sitting on the shelves of my local Sephora all this time? Sadly - no ... I was not at all impressed with this product. The balm itself is very sense and waxy, with a tragically non-glossy finish. It does a decent job of coating the lips, but doesn't absorb well - I'm left with a thick/goopy film for at least an hour application. When the product finally does dissipate, I find that my lips aren't even significantly moisturized. These shortcomings, combined with the fact that the lemony scent reminds me of a kitchen cleaning product, means I won't be repurchasing. Note: the Rose version left a beautiful tint on the lips, but the disappointing formula just isn't worth the money.
The bottom line: An ineffective product that is much over hyped and ridiculously overpriced

I got this in a sample sized set with the Sugar Rose (which I'll review separately). First of all, yes, what everyone says is true. Do not put this in your pocket or anywhere exposed to any sort of heat or it will get melty and break off! But that's the major - and mainly only - negative. I love the metal container (perhaps contributing to the heat factor) and the screw packaging. Reduces messiness. I love the lemony, sugary flavor and how it softens and protects my lips. I'm one of the few that doesn't care about SPF so I can take it or leave it. (I'm not allergic to SPF either so it's a non-issue). I merely use this day and/or night as a moisturizing lip balm. Total winner worth the price! Just keep it out of your pocket!
EDIT: I won't repurchase this. The yummy flavor and moisturizing and sun-protecting aspects of this aren't enough to outweigh the packaging and the price. Fresh, I love your company but this one didn't steal me from my HG, Dr. Hauschka. (see my review of that one!)

One of the best lip balms/lip treatments I've ever tried! It goes on so smooth, has a pleasant scent, and the packaging is not only convenient, but pretty chic for a lip balm. My lips have become so soft and supple with regular use and their Rose lip tint is perfect if I want a bit more of a glow. The price is definitely a let down but I'll be re-buying once winter rolls around again.

This stuff is like heaven in a tube. It's so buttery, soft, and smells like a sweet lemon dessert, and a tiny bit like Fruity Pebbles, haha! It smells incredible, and is the best lip moisturizer I've ever used. Mind you, my lips will crack and bleed if I don't moisturize them daily. I couldn't wear lipsticks for YEARS because of this. But this stuff helped heal my lips when they were bad.
Just be warned: It's very soft, so if you press too hard you will get too much product on your lips. It applies very easily and you can easily smooth it around with your fingertips.
I've almost run out of mine and will be so sad when I do. This stuff is just amazing.
