I really love the packaging and smell of this lip balm! It smells like sweet lemonade and the packaging is lovely and sleek, but the price tag for the formula is subpar. It's not moisturizing for longer than 30 minutes and after that, it's almost gone. when you first apply it, the texture is smooth, thick and slightly slippery, but after a while it feels just waxy. I got it as a gift and it's still not really worth finishing.

I love the sugar line! it makes your lips so soft and has a wonderful smell, the only thing is 20 plus dollars is a little expensive for something that I'm most Likely going to loose.

Argh, Im so torn. On one hand, this balm is amazing.... Moisturizes my lips like none other and lasts a good while. On the other hand, its freaking expensive. I am a lip product junkie, so I don't mind paying a little extra for a good one--but over $20 for a "chap stick" seems silly. Then again, it works great... And the packaging is nice. I know that likely plays a roll in the pricing. Not gonna say I wouldn't buy it again, but Id have to think twice.

Bought a full size of this last year, made my lips chap terribly. I thought maybe it was a change in the weather, not necessarily the product, but each time I use it, my lips always end up chapped, flaky and bleeding within a day or two. Love the texture, love the smell, love the packaging, my lips just don't love it. I have used it as an eye cream in a pinch and it has worked quite well for that so that is how I will use up the tube. I have recommended this to friends because I do think it's a great product, it just doesn't work well for me.

I alternate between this lip balm and the rose lip treatment pretty much every day. I have one in every purse. I love the clear lip balm because it serves as an excellent conditioner for my lipstick. I hate it when my lipstick sets in the crack of my lips so using a good chap stick to prep my lips is a must. It is a little pricey, but you pay for the good quality.

A well deserved 5 lippy. This is great stuff. It smells wonderful, lasts for a good few hours, and my lips are super moist and soft. I will say that $22 for a lip balm is a tad ridiculous, regardless of its 5 lip rating. But it's seemed to have last me quite awhile, so maybe not so harsh considering how many of the "cheaper" lip balms I have known and loved I go through before this guy runs out. I repurchased a full sized one after receiving two travel sized ones as the "bday gift" at Sephora. I love the packaging too - it holds up well. I definitely feel a difference with my lips after wearing this stuff.

-smoothing effect on lips
-light, pleasant scent (like a sugar lemon crepe, not lemonade)
-beautiful variety of tints (or untinted, if that's your thing)
-moisturizing effects last long after the balm wears off
-applies smoothly; no tugging of skin
-product lasts a decent amount of time, even if used every day
-classy-looking packaging design
-formula is just a bit soft (but not enough to make it a turn-off)
By now I've read HUNDREDS of reviews on this lip balm, and it seems to be a love-hate thing for majority of people. I found this out after I got a deluxe mini sample from Sephora, and I loved it so much I wanted to know more about it.
Despite having very dry skin that, at times, has even cracked around my nose and at the corners of my mouth, I've never been one to wear much lip balm. Outside of the coldest winter months in Canada, I can get away with not wearing a thing on my lips and most of the time they're fine aside from a little chapping. Alas, I am getting a wee bit older and signs of aging are showing, so the need for more moisture all over my face is greater than ever.
Frankly, I'm very surprised at the claims that this lip balm dries out some people's lips. For me, it's been pretty much the best thing ever to accidentally happen to my lips. I've worn it alone, under lipstick/glosses, and at night. I wake up with it still on my lips in the morning, and they feel fantastic and oh so smooth. I find it moisturizes my lips so well that I can go an entire day without applying it and my lips are still smooth and hydrated, and I can still feel its effects long after it's worn off. It is so far from unhydrating I'm not sure I'm even talking about the same product as some of the other reviewers.
I also find this lip balm long-lasting. As a test, after applying it I ate a hard boiled egg, drank two cups of tea, and brushed my teeth. It was still there even after brushing my teeth! Of course, some of it had worn off, but I've noticed a slight film on my lips as long as four hours after applying it. And that's with drinking, talking and eating.
The scent is just that - a scent. The balm itself isn't flavoured, which is nice. And the scent is light and fresh enough that I find myself putting it on just for the happy perkiness of the scent, which, by the way, is nothing near as overwhelming as the scents/flavours put into a lot of lip glosses and shines.
The formula itself seems to be a bit fragile - I notice that there are marks around the side of the lip balm stick from its casing. So it might be best not to wind the stick up too much to avoid weakening its base. That said, while I have seen some testers in stores that look a bit mushy, my tube has been nothing but the perfect texture - not too soft and not at all hard (unlike Burt's Bees original lip balm, which is rock-hard). Also, while I'm generous with how much I apply to my lips, I don't find that the product is wearing down that fast. I've used it every day for two weeks, and though it is a mini-version I've used barely 1/4 of a centimeter of it.
For me, the sole serious drawback is the price. While I've tried many lip balms over the years and never found anything like this one, the price tag is a bit of a deterrent. If you're someone who likes to constantly apply lip balm, then maybe you might want to have a cheaper version on hand in addition to this one, and reserve this one a bit. But because it works so well for me, I will most definitely be stocking up on a few tubes as soon as I can find a better price than the CAD$26 I see all around town.

This is the original fresh balm that inspired all the color versions. The formula is really good but I would not purchase again now that there are color versions with the same texture and SPF benefits.

This lip balm doesn't moisturize as well as less expensive alternatives such as Jack Black or Kiehls. I will not repurchase.

Gah I have such a love/hate relationship with this lip balm.
It's over $22, which is absurd.. it's completely ridiculous. And looking at the ingredients list, it is really only marginally different than any other lip balm. I don't logistically *know* what it is about Fresh Sugar lip balm that justifies the cost.
Moreover it melts in hot weather!! You have to be ridiculously careful carrying this around in your purse every day. Leave your bag in the car without the AC for too long, and the product is mush and breaking. That was a total bummer.
That being said I really am addicted to this lip balm. This is the only lip balm that I feel actually stays on my lips.
Most balms have a very waxy feel when applied to the mouth. I am constantly rubbing my lips together trying to get the residue feeling to go away.. and then its like 20 mins later there is nothing left on my lips. I feel like most lip balms sit on the lips, but nothing actually gets absorbed.
This is why I am addicted to Fresh Sugar. Fresh Sugar doesn't leave a waxy feel to my lips. When I put it on I can feel the product absorbed and my lips feel moist.
I always try to find another supplement for fresh sugar, but this product just feels sooo good. Gah- I hate the price tag though.
22.50 really is insane for lip balm.
