I always look forward to my yearly birthday gift from Sephora, and was quite pleasantly surprised by the one that I just received! This Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo is super cute and quite nice. It includes one Mini Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 and one Mini Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. Each mini contains 2.2g (0.08 oz) of product versus the full sized product that weighs in at 4.3g (0.15oz.), but these two minis together have a touch more product between them than you get in one regular size tube (which costs $22.50)- so this is quite a nice gift.
Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 is a very hydrating lip treatment that really nourishes and protects even the driest lips, and it feels so smooth, velvety and moisturizing. My lips have been really chapped lately because we have been having really weird weather in LA- one day it's hot, the next it's cold, and then it rains. All of these sudden changes in temperature have really wreaked havoc of my lips- so getting this birthday gift from Sephora couldn't have been more timely. I have been using the Sugar Lip Treatment for the last couple of days and my lips are feeling and looking much better! I really like this a lot and think that I will likely by the full size tube once I have finished this one. Once my lips are a bit more healed I will start using the Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment (I tend to avoid using pigmented lip products on chapped lips), but I suspect that I will really like it as well.
Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It also provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays. This lip-loving essential has a bright, citrus scent and is free of petroleum, mineral oil, and lanolin.
