Fresh - Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment

A makeup artist friend of mine suggested I try this lip balm from Sephora. I had a gift card, so I decided to go for it. As many of you know, finding the perfect lip balm for chapped, winter lips has been a battle of mine forever! So the verdict: there's some things I like and don't like about this balm:

Likes: The texture is really nice. It goes on nice and smoothly and makes a nice base for lipstick. It smells really lemony and fresh, and I like that the bullet is thick and grabs every inch of your lips

Dislikes: It was $25. Ahhh!! This is a lip balm we're talking about, not gold! I know, I shouldn't talk after I just bought a Chanel lipstick not too long ago. If the balm was amazing and life changing, i'd probably replace it. However, I find myself reapplying it VERY often. My lips need extra care in the winter, and reapplying a balm all the time isn't fun. Most importantly, I don't see any real results or "repairs" to my lips. After using it for a few weeks, I half expected my lips to be in better shape than before. This wasn't the case.

All in all, i'm glad I tried it! I will use it up until it's finished, but I doubt i'll replace it. I've been using CO Bigelow Mentha Supreme interchangeably, and it lasts a long time! It has a wet, more gel type texture, but it seems to really stay on and keep your lips moisturized. And it's a hell of a lot cheaper =)

What do you guys use to fight chapped lips?


  1. Apart from the price it looks so good! I normally use plain Vaseline, it's cheap and I like the little tin :P

  2. Aw thats a shame its not amazing as it should be for the price :/ I have always wanted to try the By Terry rose balm as it has so many rave reviews but its like £39!!! xo

  3. @Sunny - some of my friends swear by Vaseline! I might need to try that out for a while and find out =)Thanks for following!

    @Forever - I know, so stinky right? I've never heard of the Terry rose balm, but that's expensive too! =)

  4. i've been using the tgin shea butter lip balm, keeps my lips feeling good: tgin balm

  5. ohh gotcha, i'll have to give it a try! thanks for the tip =)
