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.

Great product! Got it for free as a birthday gift from Sephora.
Pros: super moisturizing, best lip balm I have ever tried HANDS DOWN.
Cons: slightly expensive for a lip balm
Would definitely purchase this.

I got a sample tube of this and the rose balm from Sephora for my birthday gift. First off: they're good sizes! I feel like they'll last a lone time. They're about the size of other lip balms I use, so in that respect good deal since they were free. They're 22.50 for the full size, which is super pricey for a lip balm imo. I've paid more for lipsticks, but for a clear balm I would never pay that much, although I can see why people do. I use this each morning and night, and my lips do feel moisturized, but it kinda just sits on top of my lips, so if I'm going to apply lipstick on top of the balm, it just clumps up, if that makes sense. It does a good job at nighttime though and for wear on its own. The packaging is super cute and purse friendly with the corkscrew style tube that twists shut. I love that. I also love the scent! It's so lemony and delicious. So, overall, I like this lipbalm to wear alone, under lipgloss, not lipstick, and for nighttime. I prefer it to the rose one, but won't repurchase. I'll likely just keep choosing it as my birthday gift until I find a lipbalm I like more. For me, the scent is why it's become my current fave balm. Without it, I probably wouldn't give it a second glance.

I'm so, so picky with my lip balm/treatment products. I can see why some wouldn't like this product (strong lemon scent, delicate formula, high price) but let me just say... I LOVE this product! For me it is worth the higher price tag, although I admit it hurts to repurchase this, I actually love the smell and the formula is soft and smooth and nourishing. My dry lips are spoiled to this stuff now! I also have the tinted versions and like them as well for daytime. I think I'll be repurchasing this lip treatment for a long, long time. Lip junkies give it a try!

Its sooo moisturizing but its sensitive to breaking and it reeks of lemon and I can't stand it. Also, it's way to pricey for a lip balm.

My favorite for years and years. I rarely wear the non-tinted version in the daytime because I love the Rose and Coral versions, but I always keep this one on hand for overnight. I wake up with soft, smooth lips.

I received this lip balm as my birthday gift from Sephora. At first I wasn't all that impressed for the price. I liked it, quite a bit actually but thought $22 a tube was a bit much. But, then I moved to a ridiculously humid climate and my face went crazy for the first time in 25 years so I was put on Accutane. My lips suffered the usual side effect on extreme dryness, flaking and all around grossness. I tried every lip balm, gloss, Chapstick under the sun. The only thing that helped was aquaphor lip treatment ( clear, goopy, and unattractive) Baby lips ( very temporarily, as in reapplying every 15 minutes) and This amazing stuff. You don't really realize how awesome it is until your lips aren't in great condition. So, for me, this stuff is a godsend. It heals my lips and I have a wide range of beautiful colors to choose from...since I own Every color they make now. If you have amazing soft lips and don't use this for a Chapstick then yeah it might be a little expensive. But if u live in dry cold weather, have chapped lips, want a high quality product that offers relief And a pretty color, then I would Highly recommend this.

This has to be the most expensive lip balm on earth, but my how it works! I got a free sample of this with the rose tinted lip balm and was eager to try them out. This is the silkiest lip balm I have ever tried. I am on an acne regimen that completely dries out my lips. They peel like crazy and are extremely uncomfortable. This is the only lip balm that has managed to control the peeling since I began the treatment. It leaves my lips silky smooth and hydrated for hours (and I mean hours)! I love the portability of these little tubes. They are super cute and super convenient. The smell is also fantastic! The only real complaint I have is that the balms are very soft and tend to loosen as a result. I have already repurchased this product in other colors and am looking forward to using them!

This is my least favorite of the Sugar lip treatments but only because I have other colorless balms that I prefer that cost a lot less.
Overall though, this is a decent product. It moisturizes, has a pleasant smell / taste, and contains SPF without making my lips look white like some balms with SPF can do.
The downsides are the cost and the fact that the product gets too soft slippery when it gets even slightly warm. I can keep a tube of most other lip balms in my pocket without it affecting the texture but this one gets kind of soft and can then break easliy. I also don't mind paying more for something with a tint / color but for basic lip balm this is pretty expensive. I will say I've actually never paid for this. I've received free tubes as Sephora birthday or other freebies (always mini-sized).

I've had mine for a year now and had received it as the birthday gift set from Sephora. I still have the tiny little tubes with about 1/3 left in each (the tinted and the plain). Since they are so small that should tell you how little I use them or like this particular set.
I'm not a fan of lip balms at all. I've never liked the feel or texture of them. Fresh Sugar goes on smoothly but I still feel a slight balmy texture to it but it does seem to melt into my lips. I'm not able to put it on top of any lipsticks I use, but then again, my lipsticks don't require any additional moisture. Nor do my lips. I've used them in the winter mostly when I don't need anything at all and I'm just outside without any makeup. I have other brands that are far less in cost that work just as well, taste better and do not have that waxy feel to them, such as Ole Henricksen's African Red Tea lip salvation.
Mine haven't melted as others have complained, but I also haven't left mine in the car or in the sun so they haven't had the opportunity. I think this is an extremely overpriced product and more of a gimmick as a birthday gift push from Sephora than anything. But then again, if it works for you and you have the bucks to spend, who am I to say anything? We're all guilty in spending a little something on ourselves somewhere. Maybe this is your guilty pleasure, who knows. It's just not mine.
