I am quite obsessed with Fresh Sugar lip products at the moment! I just can't seem to get enough of the lightweight formula and the refreshingly sweet, lemony sugary scent. They are literally my go-to summer 2014 lip products! Today I have a comparative post of all my Fresh Lip Treatments to share with you. There will also be a giveaway (yay!) at the end of the post as well. Continue reading to learn more about the products and find out how you can enter to win a duo of mini Lip Treatments!!
Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (untinted) and Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
These two are like sisters! :) They are both untinted, swatch/apply clear, and smell exactly the same. The real differences lie in the ingredients and texture.
Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (untinted) ingredients
- Sugar to prevent moisture loss
- Nourishing oils (meadowfoam seed, black currant seed, avocado, and jojoba) to deeply moisturize
- Grapeseed Polyphenols to smooth and soften
- SPF 15 UVA/UVB (Avobenzone and Octinoxate) to protect lips from sun damage
Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment ingredients
- Sea Fennel to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Orange Extract antioxidant to protect lips from free radicals
- Nourishing blend (Cupuacu Butter, Plum Seed Oil, and Passionflower Seed Oil) to hydrate, repair, and restore suppleness
- Hyaluronic Filling Spheres for a plumping effect
The texture of the Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment is considerably softer and thus easier to break. I mean, the original Lip Treatment SPF 15 is already super soft and it's hard to imagine anything else even softer!
The nourishing blend of the Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment feels much more moisturizing and tends to leave a waxy feel on the lips, so I only reserve it for night time treatment. The Lip Treatment SPF 15 is not as moisturizing but its texture has a lighter feel, so I like to apply it during the day underneath my lipstick. The added SPF is also really nice for daytime use.
The Advanced Therapy Lip wears well throughout the night and my lips continue to feel soft and supple the next morning. There is no visible plumping effect, however. The Lip Treatment SPF 15 doesn't wear as long, a few hours at most, and will need to reapply if worn alone (they wear better under a lip color).
Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Tulip and Rosé
They are both practically the “tinted” version of the original Lip Treatment SPF 15 — same formula, texture, scent, and performance. Tulip is a sheer hot pink tint whereas Rosé is a sheer rosy tint. They go on sheer but the coverage is buildable. I have an extensive review of Tulip here.
And if you haven't heard, the new shade called Ruby has just been released on Sephora website! At the time of this post, it is only exclusive to Sephora VIB members. I submitted my order after I published my On My Radar post and am expecting it to arrive soon. I can't wait to try it! I suspect the “shimmery rouge tint” will look gorgeous on!
Sugar Shine Lip Treatment
This is basically a shimmery pale pink clear gloss. The shimmer is really fine and adds to the appearance of fuller lips. The formula is high-shine and does not feel sticky or tacky in the slightest. It is really such a pleasure to wear. It has the same scent as other Fresh lip products, too, but not as strong. I find that it does an excellent job at locking in moisture and keeping lips looking luscious during wear. The longevity is, however, quite short at about 2-3 hours.
Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment ingredients
- Sugar to attract and seal in moisture
- Commiphora Extract to promote suppleness and smooths rough areas
- Cupuaçu and Mango Butters to nourish, soften, and restore suppleness
- Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to make lips appear fuller
- Black Currant Seed and Grapeseed Oils to hydrate and protect
Fresh recently launched 3 new shades of the Shine Lip Treatment — Cherry, Honey, and Rosè — none of which I have yet to purchase but I am planning to grab one during the Sephora VIB Rouge Reception event this Sunday! :)

Sugar Lip Polish
I have lost count of how many times I have repurchased this exfoliator! The formula strikes a perfect balance of being gentle and abrasive — gentle enough to not cause any more damage to dry/chapped lips, and abrasive enough to buff away dry flakes effortlessly. The texture is not crumbly at all and a little goes a long way. I like to massage it gently on my lips using my finger whenever I need an extra boost of suppleness/plumping effect. It's especially a must-do step prior to taking any close-up lip shots! :) The sugar grains are easy to remove with either damp wash cloth or warm water without leaving any oily/greasy residue.
Sugar Lip Polish ingredients
- Sugar to prevent moisture loss and buffs away dry flakes
- Meadowfoam Seed Jojoba Seed and Grapeseed Oils to nourish, hydrate, protect, and lock in moisture
- Shea Butter to restore suppleness to dry and damaged areas
- Vitamin E to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin by defending against wrinkle-causing free radicals
