Year of the Monkey! Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed year filled with abundance of prosperity, grace, joy and love!
Have been staying very low key for the past two months as I was tied up with work and wedding preparation… And I’m so glad to have finally tick off one of the major items in the wedding checklist – Venue wedding secured!!
Will be sharing more about wedding preparation in the days to come.
Before that, I’ve been totally hooked on the following items from Fresh.
Hailed as a cult-favorite among those who’ve tried the lip balms from Fresh, I can clearly see how and why so.
I’ve been on the hunt for a quality and ultra moisturising lip balm (Non-tinted for night use, Tinted with SPF protection for day use) for my dry and cracked lips. And while I’ve used other popular brands such as Burt’s Bees and Baby Lips, I could not help myself but to think that for sure there are better alternatives out there to soothe my lips condition.
Having read so many rave online reviews about Fresh’s products, I caved in and bought two additional babies to grow my stash of lips collection. It was Christmas festive season, and yea, it was the perfect excuse for some therapeutic shopping for self. *grins*
And the packaging is oh-so-beautiful, high quality and sturdy! Solid color metal casing with a screw-on lid. White for Non-tinted lip balm, and colored ones for tinted lip balms! I very much appreciate the thoughtful design since it has solved the issue of snap on lip balm caps which will loosen over time.
For non-tinted lip balm, Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment is your perfect go-to lip balm 24/7.
This is one ultra-hydrating lip treatment that will condition your lips for a smoother and youthful-looking finish. Upon a single stroke, you will observe that it instantly hydrates and nourishes your lips. With generous layers of application (Preferably three coats, else you’ll look like an oil slick), you can easily achieve Angelina Jolie’s luscious lips look without undergoing lips surgery.
Not sure if many of you ladies are facing similar concern as me, but I’m pretty annoyed when it comes to reapplying lip balms every few minutes to half an hour, since it takes effort to do so.
With Fresh’s lip treatments, they are outstanding when it comes to the staying power, since it only requires me to reapply after 2 hours? Not to mention I’m a proud owner to showcase the brand’s beautiful casing while reapplying. (:
I’d apply this lip treatment before bedtime as I’m bound to wake up with hydrated lips every morning. Applying lips makeup becomes a breeze since I have smooth lips to begin with! Yayyyy to kissable lips every day!
To achieve a girl-next-door look, I opted for a tinted lip balm from Fresh in Rose shade. I know I don’t come as close to being a girly girl, so I gotta rely on products to make me resemble one. Fake it ’til you make it, you know? :p
Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 is probably one of the best tinted lip balms I’ve tried. ROSE is a sheer rosy tint, so this becomes pretty much my everyday makeup look for lips, since it gives me the “MLBB – My lips but better” finish. On top of that, what’s not to love about that added sun protection factor?
The balm texture is buttery yet less oily as compared to the drugstore ones, so it’s a perfect choice to layer this with other lip colors. I’ll usually apply three coats of the lip balm and I’m all ready to head out with a bare face.
I’d have no qualms with replacing my lip sticks with Fresh’s lip treatments. (:
No doubt Fresh’s lips products are pricey (S$30-S$36 for a tube), but if you’re going for quality and nourishing lips treatments, look no further! There’s a good chance you will repurchase this miracle tube after your first encounter with the product. You simply can’t go wrong with a long-wearing and hydrated lip product!
Moisture Level: 5/5
Price: 3/5 (Just wish it’s less expensive, else it’s perfection in a metal case!)
Long-wearing power: 4/5
Let me know which shades are your favorite! Or if you have other brands to recommend, do share with me!
