Fresh’s New Sugar Remix
Beauty mash-up alert! Fresh has taken its two most iconic products, the Brown Sugar Body Polish and the Sugar Lip Treatment, and combined them into one fantastic Sugar Lip Polish, which hits stores at the end of the month. The inspiration stems from co-founders Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg’s childhood remedy of applying sugar to soften rough patches, a technique handed down to both of them by their respective grandmothers. This hybrid lip salve combines fine-grain brown sugar crystals with meadowfoam seed, jojoba seed, and grapeseed oils to nourish skin. A touch of shea butter is also added to seal in long-lasting moisture. To maximize the exfoliation benefits, just scoop out a quarter-size amount of the polish and rub in with your fingers (pursing your lips to make things easier), or dip a washcloth into the mini-sized tub and buff in light, circular motions. Let the scrub sit for a relaxing interlude (five minutes or so) and then rinse off with warm water. Finish with a generous layer of your favorite balm. Judging from the silky-smooth results we experienced, you’re going to want keep this one at the ready as chapped-lip season rages on.
