My take on the Fresh Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm-
The tub packaging is cute, sturdy & convenient with color coded screw-on lids to distinguish between variants. It is easy to use & easier to carry along 🙂
The balm is very rich, quite thick in texture & is your perfect fix if you also suffer from very dry, parched lips in winter like me! It is very hydrating, emollient & instantly soothes dry lips with a rich coating of moisture without any sticky/tacky feel <3
The balm, though looks tinted in the tub is colorless when it goes on lips. Since the balm is quite thick in texture, it is not very ideal to wear underneath a lipstick as it does make it slip & slide around quite a lot :-/ I blot it with a tissue & then apply lip color when I have to. It keeps my lips soft & hydrated under very dry, matte lip colors though 🙂
The hydrating power is excellent & lasts 4-5 hours on lips through conversation, food & drinks. It instantly repairs & soothes chapped lips, even better if kept overnight.
The fragrance is yummy caramel custard-y & I have to exercise all my self-control to not lick it 😛 It is not overwhelmingly sweet though & fades in a few minutes.
Pros of the Fresh Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm:
1> Cute & convenient, sturdy tub packaging with screw-on lid.
2> Rich, thick luxurious lip balm- perfect for dry cold winters.
3> Instantly soothes & hydrates lips.
4> No tacky residue.
5> Amazing hydration- lasts for a few hours through food & drinks.
6> Yummy caramel fragrance.
Cons of the Fresh Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm:
Not ideal under lip colors.
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Fresh Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm?
Fresh Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm is a huge shot of rich, luxurious moisture to dry, chapped lips in the cold, dry winters & I can see why people are so hung up on this brand for their lip balms- they are amazing! I don’t like the missing SPF though which means it is not an ideal choice for daytime wear under lipsticks :-\ Otherwise, love, love it!
