Who doesn't love Sephora? I know I do! And guess what? Sephora loves me back. Okay, so I think they love all their customers, but I'm cool with that too. If you're a member of their Beauty Insider (it's free to join and you earn points towards bonus samples and limited editions), they remember your birthday!
Yep, that's right! Stop by during your birthday month and get a present! I think this is great and I'm exceptionally lucky as my birthday falls in January, so I can actually pop into a Sephora (the rest of the year I'm in exile in the Sephora-less England). Awesome.
So what did Sephora give me for my birthday? A mini lip treatment duo from Fresh Sugar including a regular clear lip treatment and a tinted rose colour lip treatment. It claims to 'nourish, protect, and perfect your pout with a blend of skin-softening sugar, moisturizing seed oils, and antioxidant-rich vitamins.' Sounds good to me!
These are like a lip balm and my lips really love them. I would have swatched them, but one is clear and the tinted one is so lighted tinted it doesn't really show up, so I couldn't be bothered. Sorry! Fresh have several other shades on their website and when these babies run out, I'm tempted to check out the darker passion colour to see if that shows on my lips!
These also have a really familiar scent and taste. I can't remember what it's called, but a good friend of mine years ago recommended something that smelled like this to use whenever you felt ill. Maybe it almost reminds me slightly of Vicks Vapour Rub? Hm.
Oh well, either way, I'm pretty pleased. I really like the small sizes, and actually probably prefer it to the full size lip treatment. It's exactly what my lips need during the dry winter!
