I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I still experience winter beauty dilemmas in California just like I did in New York. Since temperatures do drop in sunny SoCal and people do catch colds and the flu as much (if not more) than on the East Coast, my wintertime creature comforts kit is ready for battle at a moment’s notice.
That includes hand creams for when I need to bring my delicate skin back to life after over-washing, a plethora of body products for flaking and a lip balm that comes to the rescue each and every time my painful, chapped lips are in need of some serious SOS.
That lip savior, Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment, comes in a cute little twist tube applicator, smells like (you guessed it!) SUGAR, and glides onto my lips leaving behind a formula that’s thicker than traditional balm without being goopy. Packed with antioxidant-rich oils and vitamins C & E, the ingredients drench lips to soothe and heal.
And since the product is all anyone can talk about (even for non lip emergencies, just maintenance purposes), Fresh has launched limited-edition SUGA(RED) Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in partnership with (RED). For every SUGA(RED) purchased, 25 percent of the retail price goes to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, which can provide more than 2 weeks of life-saving HIV medication in sub-Saharan Africa.
