Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Wonder Drops Review

Not Sponsored. I LOVE Fresh Beauty's Sugar Advanced Therapy lip products. I swear by Fresh's Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Balm ($26)(Barneys, StrawberryNet, Harrods, Nordstrom). It's my absolute FAVORITE lip balm and the first I reach for both day and night! I also love Fresh's Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Serum ($36)(Barney's, StrawberryNet, Harrods, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sephora). You can see both of my reviews here and here. So I was really excited to see that Fresh came out with Sugar Lip Wonder Drops ($26) (Harrods, Nordstrom, JCPenney). So, what are these drops? Fresh states these drops are a DAILY TREATMENT! Fresh goes on to say, "these drops gently exfoliates, softens, and smoothes dry, flaky lips to keep them looking flawless and READY FOR LIPSTICK." These drops are also "enriched with AHAs—a blend of sugar and natural fruit extracts and hibiscus flower extract—this lightweight water-based fluid preps and primes the lips’ surface and improves signs of damage for a youthful look" You might be asking, what is the difference between the SERUM and these DROPS? I know I was. You can read my review for the serum (linked above), but in a nutshell I found the serum to be nourishing and plumping (without any sensation). The only negative I've found with the serum, is that it works great with lip gloss but is slightly conflicting with lipstick application. So I use it at night instead of during the day. Now, how do I feel about these lip wonder drops! These lip drops, contain a dropper. It works really well. You apply 1-2 drops on your lips. Use your finger to work the drops into your lips. Your lips immediately feel hydrated, BUT....the hydration doesn't last. These drops QUICKLY DRY and the hydration you initially felt is gone! Yes, your lips are better than they initially were, but my lips didn't feel plump...I still saw lines and there was VERY LIGHT exfoliation. I kept asking myself, do I need this? I exfoliate my lips every morning with a lip scrub (see my Sara Happ lip scrub reviews here). I then use a lip primer (Sara Happ primer review $28)(QVC, Nordstrom) every morning to prime & plump my lips for lipstick or lip gloss. At night, I use Fresh's Advanced Therapy Lip Balm or Fresh Caramel Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm (review here). For me, these lip wonder drops don't provide enough hydration for my lips. They only lightly exfoliate. After application, I can still see fine lines. MAYBE these drops are good if you're on the go or traveling. It's a quick way to prep your lips. Also, these drops won't conflict with lipstick or lip gloss. But for me, the results are just OK. Again, when you initially apply these drops you're like WOW, but as it dries you're like HMMM. LOL It's not a bad product, but I don't think it's as great as it could've been. These drops are to PREP the lips for lipstick or lipgloss application. So it has to dry down fast. I just feel my Sara Happ lip primer does a better job. It primes. It plumps. That's what I need in my skincare regimen.
