The Fresh Duo

fresh Sugar Lip Treatment - $22.50 and fresh Sugar Lip Polish - $22.50
I know, somebody needs to stop me reviewing items that are so hard to track down in the UK, but I just had to share my opinions on these wonder products. As someone with a borderline crazy obsession with lip balms/lip care products, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to try the fresh products.

This was one of those products that every American YouTuber talked about, so naturally I had to get my hands on it- it'd be rude not to try it. It has a fresh (pun intended) citrusy scent and the formula is greatly nourishing. That being said, however, it wasn't exactly a wonder product. It's not thick enough to be an overnight balm so it's just a day balm. If I'm sitting at home and my lips are feeling a bit chapped I would use this. It's quite thick for a day balm but that's what I really like. While I like this, I probably wouldn't repurchase simply because it's quite expensive and I'm sure I cold find more purse-friendly options.

I never used to use a lip scrub but now I'm never turning back! This is so finely milled so it doesn't feel like you're just rubbing huge granules of sugar on my lips. It smells lovely and it doesn't make your lips feel stripped, on the contrary in fact- it leaves a little bit of moisture! Many people will recommend cheaper options but I've had this since October and I've hardly made a dent in it. It may be a bit more expensive but I think you get what you pay for, both with quality and quantity. 

Out of the two I don't think both are essential, I would prioritise the lip polish. However, if you really want to try the lip balm you could pick up one of the tinted versions for a little hint of colour. There's a flagship store in London but apart from that you have to either have a really lovely friend/family member who could bring it back for you if you aren't going over the pond to pick it up.


  1. I haven't tried anything from Fresh yet, but I really want to try both of these. Thanks for the great review.

  2. I tried a sample of the stick version and loved it! I really need to repurchase it. Great review :) xx

  3. I just the lip polish and I adore it! :D I've had mine for along time as well and still have miles to go - yay!
