Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $22.50

THE SKINNY: Let's be honest. The Sugar Lip Treatment made by fresh may be fabulous, but I will never buy this product because of the price. For the $22.50 plus tax charged for one tube, I could buy nearly 10 tubes of Carmex, ChapStick or whatever other brand catches your eye.

That being said, I do love this lip treatment. It's nice and thick and smooth, much like an upscale Carmex. It has a slight lemon scent and even slighter lemony taste.

And it lasts a decent amount of time -- not the six hours the advertising promises -- but it left my lips feeling comfortable for an hour or two.

Sugar Lip Treatment uses sugar to preserve moisture, as well as nourishing oils and polyphenols. Plus the SPF 15 addition is a nice bonus.

Now if fresh could just do something about the price.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep the sample, because you know you're not spending that much on it.
