Holiday 2014 Gift Sets from Fresh

Fresh Holiday 2014 Collection
A couple days ago, I posted about the Burt's Bees Energizing Peppermint Kit (reviewed here), which makes a great gift for those who don't wear makeup. Well, today I have three gift sets from Fresh,  all of which look super fancy and bright, but are actually perfect for beauties that like to go au naturel. To read more, click......

Fresh Sugar Legends ($65 CAD):
Probably the most coveted of all the gift sets, the Fresh Sugar Legends features seven mini (2 gram versus 4.25 gram full sized) Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments with SPF 15.

Packaging:
The tinted balms comes in a beautiful pull-out cardboard tray in the most festive cardboard box, which really doesn't require any further gift packaging. The balms have a matte aluminum tube with a twist off cap, just like the full-sized balms.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
The Fresh Lip Treatments have a very soft formulation, infused with sugar, oil, and waxes that help lips retain moisture. Also formulated with black currant oil, grapeseed polyphenols, and vitamins, the balm keeps the lips plump and healthy.
The pigmentation for these are quite light, although buildable, they will only really provide a flush of color, especially depending on how naturally pigmented your own lips are.

  • Berry: semi-sheer plummy pink
  • Passion: sheer coral pink
  • Cherry: semi-sheer cherry red
  • Honey: sheer orange coral nude
  • Rose: very sheer warm pink nude
  • Tulip: sheer baby pink
  • Petal: sheer warm pink
Head on over to Beyond Blush to check out some swatches of these babies.

Fresh Sweet Nudes ($42 CAD):
This is a smaller lip set from Fresh featuring four mini tinted balms and one delicious mini lip scrub.
The balms and scrub come in a similar festive cardboard gift box with a pull-out tray. The balms come in the same fancy aluminum bullets and the scrub comes in a small plastic tub. The set includes three colors (again, check out the swatches over at Beyond Blush if you are interested) previously seen in the Sugar Legends Set:

  • Honey: sheer orange coral nude
  • Rose: very sheer warm pink nude
  • Petal: sheer warm pink
  • Sugar: untinted
Formulated with meadowfoam seed, jojoba seed, and grapeseed oil, the Sugar Lip Polish uses brown sugar crystals to help scrub away dead skin and dry patches on the lips. This lip scrub is perfect for use before wearing a high maintenance lip colors or matte lipsticks.

Overall:
Such lovely sets with absolutely gorgeous packaging! If you want it all then go for the Sugar Legends. If you like more pigmented shades, check out the Sugar Cravings trio and if you prefer very sheer balms, the Sweet Nudes would be my pick.
