We had an opportunity to try a product from Sephora today. The product is from the Fresh beauty brand.
Never heard of the Fresh beauty brand? We hadn’t either until we had the opportunity to try their Sugar advanced therapy lip treatment.
The Fresh beauty brand is a brand that is said to be “dedicated to natural ingredients, rich textures, and addictive scents” It was founded in Boston in 1991 by Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg.
According to information on their website, Fresh “pioneered the use of many natural ingredients in the beauty industry, most notably sugar.
Their Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment is an anti-aging lip treatment that is claimed to “repair, nourish, plump, and smooth the look of wrinkles around the delicate lip area”.
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
From Sephora.com – This ultra-hydrating lip treatment corrects and conditions lips for a smooth, youthful-looking finish. It is scientifically proven to repair the lips—significantly boosting moisture, enhancing volume, and improving the definition of the lip area. It is fortified with a high concentration of ultra-nourishing, age-delaying ingredients including hyaluronic spheres to penetrate the skin, fill in wrinkles, and plump the appearance of lips, and sea fennel extract to help smooth fine lines and define the lip area
Even if you’re still in your twenties you can use an anti-aging lip treatment. It’s said that many women begin to see the first signs of aging in their mid to late 20s. Some people suggest you should begin to take steps to fight the aging process even as early as age 17. While this seems a bit outrageous, the earlier you start, the longer you will be able to maintain a youthful appearance. And you know how things work in this wonderful world in which we live. With ladies like Christie Brinkley making it appear as if a woman can still look youthful well into her sixties, the obsession with defying age isn’t about to fade into oblivion.
So if a girl hopes to still have it going on in her sixties, she’s gotta start fighting the signs of aging probably the moment she enters puberty. (We’re not entirely serious, but seriously, we wish we had known it only takes 15 minutes to get from age 15 to age 30. And after 30 it takes like 5 minutes to get to 35. And after 35 you blink and you’re 45. So yeah, it’s like that. Youth is fleeting and if you don’t start taking care of your skin early, getting sleep, drinking water and all that jazz, you’ll find that you’re 35 looking 45, 45 looking 55 while the Christie Brinkley’s of the world are 60-something looking younger than you do.
A woman’s lips are her…
Honestly we’d finish that sentence with a woman’s lips are her lips. But some people suggest a woman’s lips are much more than that. For sure lips are impossible to hide. And lips can turn people on or off. If you don’t care one way or another that your lips might turn people off more power to you. We are totally behind any lady who couldn’t care less what anybody thinks of her looks.
But if you are sensitive to people’s opinions of your looks then you should be aware that you speak with your lips both literally and figuratively. Your lips have the power to attract or repel. So you need to take care of them if you want them to draw people to you rather than push them away.
Even if your lips are perfectly youthful now, time changes that. So begin now to give your lips the care they need.
The Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment comes with a $25 price tag. Our take on that is that it must surely deliver on its promises. You’re not going to charge $25 for a lip balm unless you’re very confident it can work miracles.
We can’t comment on the effectiveness yet. But we did like the fact that it didn’t have the heaviness of other lip treatments we’ve used.
What we like about it so far
- It’s light
- It has a pleasant scent
- It doesn’t make our lips feel like they’re coated in grease
- It seemed to make our lips feel softer after just one application (but we have to give more time to be sure)
