Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF15

This was a gift from LeGeeque on her holiday to Malaysia a month ago. She messaged me on GTalk raving about this lipbalm, and whaddyaknow, I got one too! It’s lovely to have good friends who know that even though you really don’t need another lipbalm, you could still always do with just one more :P

Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF15

Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It also provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays. Does not contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, triclosan.

Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF15 Ingredients

This was my first beauty product from Fresh, and let me just say, I’m impressed enough to want to try out the range. As far as lip balms go, I need them to NOT be waxy and stink of artificial sweetness. The Sugar Rose Lip Treatment is neither.

It’s incredibly smooth and glides on the lips very well. It’s not waxy, so it does not jerk on the lips when you apply it (there are lip balms that do; those are the dry and waxy ones which I dislike). It also has a sheer, rosy tint that gives my lips just a subtle pop of colour when I need it.

Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF15 Before and After

I’m not sure if you’re going to understand this next bit, but when I’m about to fall sick, or am feeling very “heaty” (it’s a Chinese health thing that I don’t really know how to explain), my body may be feeling all kinds of shit, but my lips have this slightly swollen, rosy tint that is just beautiful. Now when I’m healthy, that rosy tint disappears. It’s very strange, and I cannot fathom it. This lip balm is a very close second to that sickly rosy tint on my lips that I want. Without me having to feel like poo.

Another bonus to the lip balm is that it contains SPF 15. Not very high, but at least it’s some form of sun protection on the lips. There’s no chemical scent on the lip balm, only a hint of a type of candy I can’t seem to remember. Oh wait. Hang on. I know! It smells a little like Tic Tacs! :D

Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF15

I believe I’ve raved enough about the lip balm. I would love for you to try it, but unfortunately, this isn’t available in Australia. LeGeeque bought this from Sephora Malaysia, and you can get one from Sephora US as well. Oh, and you can also get it from Strawberrynet ;) I believe they’re selling it for AU$29.50.

What I like about it: Lovely rosy tinted lipbalm, contains SPF, smells like Tic Tacs

What I do not like about it: Not available in Australia

    I’m glad you love this as much as I did. I think I’ve almost finished my first tube and thankfully, there’s Bee to get me 3 more tubes, woohoo!

      LeGeeque: Haha I know! This really is good stuff, thanks heaps :D

    Oh my god, recently when I was majorly hauling in Sephora in Hawaii (what a showoff!) I got a mini Fresh kit of tinted lip balms and the scrub. These, my friend, are amazing. In NYC (there I go again!) in their boutique they stock a wonderful range of tinted moisturisers that would make any gal gah-low, that I think you’d really like too. Keep an eye out!

    1. Tine

      MsCritique: Darling you know I lived vicariously through your awesome holidays so we are GOOD :P I’m thinking of getting a few Fresh items from now. Oh you are an enabler!

  3. Renee | Beauty Fool

    Omg, I’ve heard raves about this lipbalm EVERYWHERE and it looks so good! I don’t think we have this brand in SG either though. :(

    Hope you feel better soon… my body is always “heaty”, I think it’s from all that rotten junk food I always eat! :/

    1. Tine

      Renee: Oh tell me about it. It feels like I have perpetual ‘heatiness’ and it bugs the hell out of me. I’ve tried boiling lots of barley soups but they don’t seem to work. On the bright side, I have awesome-looking rosy red lips out of it. Erm, at least that’s a win? :P

  4. Jyoan

    So expensive in Australia? They are S$25 at Sephora Singapore. But I can never bring myself to buy this every time I walk pass it, no matter the rave. But it really looks good on you… … now I am slightly swayed.

    I don’t like castor oil in my lip balms, as they tend to make my lips peel in 1 -2 hours. But other than that, the ingredients look good too.

      Jyoan: Aww thanks Jyoan. To be honest, when I was at Sephora Malaysia, I didn’t even bother looking at Fresh. They weren’t cheap to begin with. But I’m so thankful for the gift from LeGeeque because now it really makes me want to try out the other stuff.
      This lipbalm doesn’t make the lips peel, or at least, it doesn’t for me. Do try it out if possible :)

  5. Syen

    Oh no. I’ve seen them in Sephora here and so far, I’ve always managed to walk away. Your post is not helping! They’re selling them for RM50/60~ thereabouts here, if I remember correctly.

    1. Tine

      Syen: Uh oh. New lemming created! :P

  6. Paris B

    I have this! I picked this up on a whim and erm… never used it >.< I actually looked in my drawer of lippies this morning and saw it but didn't take it out. I guess I should take it out tomorrow then ;)

      Paris: Hee hee! Take it out and use! LeGeeque would be disappointed if you didn’t ;)

  7. Annabella Freeman

    I’ve got their lip treatment balm and I put it on before I go to bed so lips stay hydrated during the night.

    Word of warning about Fresh though, some over their products are over-hyped but tres expensive so watch how you go! Don’t buy the lip scrub – it’s rubbish!

    1. Tine

      Annabella: Oooh thanks for the heads up! I was actually thinking of the lip scrub! Right, off that one goes. Their products are expensive, which was why before this I didn’t give the brand a second look.

  8. Vivi

    It’s a bit expensive but currently, I’m looking for a morning lip balm with a bit of tint (as I look like I’m having anemia on most days!) so I might just check this out. Wondering what the “parfum” is composed of though ’cause my lips are quite sensitive to lots of things (peels easily), including synthetic fragrance.
    Vivi recently posted..Review & Giveaway: Dress made from Bamboo Fabric by Zhai Eco Collection!My Profile

    1. Tine

      Vivi: I believe it’s synthetic fragrance. On the safe side, I think you’d better give this one a miss then. It’s quite expensive and if it doesn’t work for you, it’s a lot of money wasted.

  9. しずか ♥ (heartofpearl)

    Oh this is a gorgeous tint! Looks lovely and moisturising. Something every girl needs in a hand bag – not too over the top! x

      Shizuka: Exactly. Plus I don’t need a mirror to put this on ;)

  10. gio

    I don’t this is available here and it’s a shame cos it sounds so good and the tint is really pretty.

      Gio: Oh it’s a gorgeous tint and goes on so well on the lips too. You can always try getting it online. Strawberrynet sells it :P

  11. Alysha Jacobson

    I love your blog especially because your from Melbourne the same as me, if you could would you take some time to look at my new beauty blog I would be so happy.

    1. Tine

      Alysha: Thanks Alysha :)

  12. Shamim de Varax

    ksuan of belledemoiselle got me on this balm! I got one at the singapore sephora and it’s gorgeous. not much of a tint but the smell is wonderful (like something you want to taste) and it’s really soft and lightweight. one thing to watch out for though is it will melt in hot weather very easily!

    1. Tine

      Shamim: Oooh thanks for the heads up! Will be sure to not leave it out in the open or by the window :)

  13. Helz Nguyen

    I been hearing about this lip balm once in awhile, and all the reviews been positive. What do you think about it moisturizing effect, is it long lasting? Im a total addict when it comes to lip balms – I own too many and use it too much, but havent found anything that really impresses me yet
    Helz Nguyen recently posted..MAC Hey, Sailor!My Profile

    1. Tine

      Helz: It’s pretty long lasting. It looks like a lipstick, in which I would normally apply lip balm first prior to the lippie, but this multitasks very well. No extra lip balm necessary :)

  14. Swati

    this looks really pretty on the lips :) the chinese thing, really weird that your lips are so pinky then and they lose that glow when you are back to normal :)
    Swati recently posted..Rose Water with EO twist {DIY}My Profile

    1. Tine

      Swati: Oh my goodness, YES! It’s really strange. When the lips are really dry, the outline of the lips darkens, so it looks like I have perpetual lip liner on :P

  15. Beauty Box

    This tinted lip balm sounds amazing! I just checked the Sephora US site and it says USD22.50 for this…OMG…And SGD25 in Singapore…If I could somehow get this in a set, I might be swayed. Though I have splurged on Dior Lip Glow which is more expensive…Perhaps I justified it because Dior is obviously a luxury brand – lol! But Fresh has high-end prices which somehow don’t match their image…?? I don’t know, I’ll prob get this the next time I see it since I’m a bit of a lip balm junkie…

    1. Tine

      Beauty Box: Sadly this lipbalm isn’t cheap. If it wasn’t my friend who gave me a tube, I probably wouldn’t have given it a second look if I’m at Sephora just because of the price. But after using it…homaigod…it’s good. And I think I might actually finish the entire tube, unlike my 463746 barely-used ones. So cost per use-wise, erm, justified? ;)

  16. Thurisaz Sala'il

    You know, I’m in Florida… I could *mail* you things if you can’t get them in Australia. :P

    I’m a sucker for lipglosses. I must have a dozen different ones already. My problem is that it is so ungodly humid and hot here that they will sometimes literally melt off my face, leaving me with horrible acne near where the makeup was. x.x Not pretty. I now look for the hardest stick glosses because I know that by the time I have it on, it will have melted to the point where application is easy.

      Thurisaz: Ohhhhh you’re tempting me big time here! :P

      Yikes! No wonder you prefer stick glosses. Wouldn’t be pretty for it to literally melt off your lips! >.<
