Review: Fresh Sugar Sport Treatment

I thought I’d seen it all with my dry and flakey lips (especially when I go overseas), but my body has decided to betray me by taking it one notch up – now the areas around my lips are peeling too. Alas. I sometimes try to salvage it with aloe vera gel to soothe the area around the lips, but eventually, there’s a need to prevent the moisture from escaping, which is why I usually resort to Vaseline, and now, this slightly more convenient alternative.

I say….

The Packaging: A convenient tube that has a built-in knob at the bottom to dispense the product. The design of the knob makes it slightly less prone to accidental turning. The cap is a click-on one, and the treatment stick itself has a slightly larger surface area as compared with your traditional lip products (since this can go on the face as well).

The Scent: Nil.

The Texture: It applies smoothly onto the skin without dragging, and doesn’t have a greasy/sticky afterfeel. That said, there’s definitely a slight (and lightweight) film over the skin, and you can see a very slight sheen over the skin.

The Verdict: It definitely serves well as a lip balm, keeping my lips sufficiently moist/preventing the moisture from escaping (I use it as a base for tints), and I love that it can be applied on the area around the lips too. Did I mention there’s an SPF factor? That said, I wouldn’t apply it over my entire face/eye area if I were wearing makeup; this would be really suitable for a day out in the sun when you’ve got barely any makeup on and yet still want to have some semblance of sun/moisture protection. Overall, a decent lip balm product that has an extra function.
