There’s just something about having products that are somewhat of a luxury item – something you don’t need but have nonetheless, just because you want it. Fresh’s Brown Sugar Lip Polish is definitely one of those products, and I have to tell you – I am LOVING IT! I reviewed this briefly last month, and since I’ve been using it, I’m finding I’m becoming more and more infatuated with it. It’s true, I could probably just mix some olive oil and brown sugar and it would have a similar effect – or even easier, rub some Vaseline on my lips, then buff it away with a damp wash cloth. Both are tried and true methods of keeping my kisser soft and smooth – but oh how delicious this indulgence is! And looks infinitely prettier in my medicine cabinet 🙂 A full-size of the Brown Sugar Lip Polish (this is a deluxe sample) is the same price as the Lip Treatments – $26CAD – and worth every penny. Even though this, like the lip treatments, are a ridiculous indulgence, it’s one I take great pleasure in every single time. I’ve been using it every few days, and it’s really helped keep my lips soft and smooth – this time of year especially, they take a beating from the cold weather, and tend to get flaky on the regular. Since using this product, I have yet to have that issue, which is a real bonus in my books as I hate the feeling of rough and chapped lips!Woo, look at that meaty fist! I wasn’t going to post this shot because it makes my hand look like a man hand or something – but I kind of liked the visual with my bathroom sink in the background, so I left it. Never let it be said that I’m too vain! 🙂 You can see all the little granules of real brown sugar in the close-up. The benefit of the sugar as well, is that it slowly dissolves as you buff, so that it works itself down to next to nothing and then rinses away – leaving lips soft, and hydrated through the jojoba, grape, and meadowfoam seed oils, and shea butter.
This is a product I normally wouldn’t shell out before, because as I said, it IS an indulgence, and I can find items in my kitchen that could probably produce similar effects. But I just feel special using this, I’m sorry. I love the cute little container; I love the smell of it; and the effects are indisputable. Will I buy it again when I run out? Maybe not right away – but as soon as I feel like treating myself, I know exactly where I’ll be headed!
Do you have any guilty pleasures that you stand by, regardless of how unnecessary?
