Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift

I have been so excited to pick up this year's Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift! It is a duo of mini-size Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, one in the original Lemon Sugar (un-tinted) and one in Rose (barely there pink tint). Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments have a cult following and I have never owned one before, so I am happy to have these in my clutches now, especially for free!


Here are the mini lip treatments next to my Skinnygirl lip balm, which is the same size as a Burt's Bees lip shimmer. Though the lip treatment tubes are a bit shorter and thicker than the Skinnygirl lip balms, they have about the same amount of product. And as you can see the actual lip balm is narrower than a traditional Chapstick-size lip balm, which may be a plus or minus depending on your preferences.

As far as the content, these babies do contain chemical sunscreens but they also contain a ton of natural oils. I find the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments to be smooove, cushion-y and buttery. If they weren't so dang expensive I would probably re-purchase, but for now I will just enjoy these freebies!

  1. Wooo you finally got the birthday gift! And happy early birthday :D I love the Fresh lip balms, I am so happy Sephora decided to give them away this year as the birthday gift. Do the chemical sunscreens ever make the back of your throat feel funny? Sometimes if I accidentally get some of these (or any lip balm with a sunscreen in it) in my mouth, the back of my throat aches... Very weird! Anyway, that doesn't happen very often, so it's all good.
