Fresh - Rose Lip Tint





So Fresh skincare is the latest outing from America.  So the founders wanted to create artisan products with natural ingredients. Using such everyday items as sugar, rice, soy and milk to name but some  products used to create natural and sustainable beauty.

So when i received this Lip tint as a part of a promotional offer for Birchbox i was really excited to try as I've heard a lot about this brand as they do have the odd sample pop up in our american counters beauty boxes.
Now i have heard about the Lip scrub with sugar they produce which sounds lovely and has been awarded for it formula.



So the packaging is really small and compact, really lovely pattern and nothing garish or over the top. So it is presented nicely, however it is small.  The full size is 4.3g so this is half the size of a normal one.
It says the Key ingredients are

-Sugar, a natural humectant, prevents moisture loss
-A superior blend of nourishing oils, including meadowfoam and black currant seed oils, deeply moisturize dry areas
-Grapeseed polyphenols protect, smooth, and soften
-SPF 15 UVA/UVB protection





Compared to our Lip tints this is really small and compact, with a screw top cap which i admit took some getting used to as ours just pop off.  It is really sweet smelling which i don't mind as it does remind me of the sherbet lollies you get in lucky bags but its insanely sweet. Being that the main ingredient is sugar i wouldn't use this a lot as even though i don't mind the smell , at some point everything becomes sickly.
The tint is a nice colour and it is moisturising to your lips, i didn't find my lips slid around or they were tacky. So this is a lip tint i would use but only as I'm going out or as a touch up to a end of the day. As with lip tints they seem nice and light but they can be built on so you need to keep in mind that its not a usual salve you'd have in your bag to grab if your lips are chapped.
They do do a range of these tints and a clear balm aswell if you prefer not to use a tint based.

I don't  know if they will release the range over in the UK. I know there is a Fresh store in Marylebone, London, However i don't know what they stock as the product ranges are vast from Skincare , Make-up , Soaps to Home-wares in America . 


Have you tried any of Fresh products ? What did you think ?
