Fresh Sugar Lip Polish Review, Photos, Swatches


I impulsively splurged on the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish while perusing through Sephora. It was expensive at $22.50 so I had high hopes for this product but the "natural humectants" in it fail to soften my lips, much less slough off the dead skin cells. Granted, I do have very dry, incredibly flaky lips. If you have low maintenance lips and you're just noticing a touch of dryness here and there this winter, however, it may work for you. Read more to see photos of the texture!






I tried massaging my lips with a very little product at first. The second time, I tried using a lot of product. It didn't make a difference either way. Both times, I massaged my lips for approximately twenty to thirty seconds. My lips were not well exfoliated, even after rinsing with a damp washcloth as instructed. Yes, the scrub removes the largest particles of skin that hang, but those are easily removed - no expensive lip polish necessary. I was looking for a lip scrub that would exfoliate a bit deeper, not just scratch the surface. If anything, I think a Do-It-Yourself sugar scrub would be a lot more cost effective yet yield similar results to this Sugar Lip Polish. My readers/viewers know I'm not a DIY fan so that's saying a lot.


Bottom Line: I'm returning it. I plan to try the Sara Happ lip scrub that Temptalia.com's writer Christine recently recommended.

  3. Hi Rae - You might also want to give the Mary Kay Satin Lip Set (Mask and Balm) a try. I've tried it before and I remember liking it.

  4. I didn't like this lip scrub either! I feel like it's not grainy enough, if that makes sense! I like to mix sugar and coconut oil in a container and use that for my lips. It works really well, and taste good too haha!

  5. Reggie - I can't use Fresh lip treatments because they make my lips peel. I used a balm afterward and it still didn't help.

    M.fay - Thank you for letting me kno!

    Jill B - I'll try a couple more and then we'll see. Thank you!

    Nataliie - Yes, I agree! That sounds awesome. I"ll definitely give that mix a try :)

  6. I wasnt a huge fan of this either. It has a great texture that you would think it would do wonders for your lips, and reach below the surface. I find my lips feel even drier and peel more after using this product. I got the the mini one that comes with the plum lip treatment

  7. Have you tried Lush's lip scrub? I have the Mint Julips one and it seems to do the same thing that this Fresh one does, except It's significantly cheaper at $8.95 for 0.9 oz. Plus, it's edible, so you can just lick it off when you're done exfoliating! =)

  8. I have to agree with Jill B. I use the Mary Kay lip scrub & I don't even have to put on lip balm afterwards to achieve flawless lipstick application. My lips are dry and flaky that even Chanel Rouge Coco Shine & Dior's lipsticks are a bit dry for me. Good luck finding a good lip scrub :)

  9. Hey,
    I just wanted to let you know that I use the Lush Sugar Lip Scrub which you can buy in 3 different colours and tastes. It cost me around 3£, I think. :)
    It has helped me a lot to keep my lips soft and super smooth looking. I apply Burt's Bees lipbalm afterwards and my lips feel like Heaven!!! :D

    Just wanted to tell you this since you seem to bee looking for a good lip scrub. :)

    By the way, I love your blog and videos on youtube, but never feel that I have anything useful to say to post a comment... ^^ Sorry.

  12. This lip balm looks great and I bet it tastes good too! Just make sure that your teeth are healthy and for that perfect smile. I know a good New York cosmetic dentist if you need any help with your oral health.
