I have used Fresh's Lip Sugar Treatment before, which I enjoyed, but the lemony scent and tast used to give me big headaches. I also noticed with the Fresh Lip Sugar Treatment, that I was reapplying MUCH more often than I am with the Caudalie Lip Conditioner. What I like about the Fresh product, is that it comes in different tints. Both are great products, but if you're just looking for a plain lip treatment, I would say give the Caudalie a try and see if you like it as much as the other reviewers and myself!

I was ready to buy a 2 pack of the Caudalie in Sephora the other night, and decided to try the Fresh Sugar Plum instead. What a mistake! Caudalie is the best of the two, IMO. The color in Fresh is nice, but the softening in Caudalie is far superior.

I tried Sugar, but I like Caudalie much better. The sunscreen in a lot of products irrates my lips and that happened with Sugar. I use Caudalie at night and in the morning, and it works wonders. I am also outside quite a bit, and use it as a protectant- it is wonderful in cold weather.

I use Smashbox lip treatment under my lipstick. It's smooth, not waxy, and has minimum shine so you still get full color from your lipstick/gloss. This I returned because it's so hard and waxy that it's hard to put it on, and then you honestly can't rub your lips together.

Question
will this keep lips soft longer than it lasts?
I am a lip balm junkie. I am constantly being made fun of by my friends for constantly re-applying. I like my lips to always be soft. I find that once my lip balm (currently using Burts Bees) wears off my lips start to chap again. I go through a lot of lip balm. I wouldn't mind paying more for this product if it promises to keep my lips soft without re-applying 10 times a day. I recently discovered that my constant reapplication is causing blackheads on my chin, so I would love something that I could use more sparkingly.

You're going to have to reapply this product more than you would Chapstick or any drugstore brand. I am not a "lip balm junkie" and found myself reapplying every 5 minutes before I realized what's the point and reached for my cheapie lip balm I had never paid more than a few bucks for lip balm and thought it would be nice to try a higher end product. The search continues....

You have to try this. It is non-greasy and for me lasts all day without reapplication. Every other balm I tried before never lasted this long by a long-shot. I'm also a little lazy and forgetful, so if I have to reapply frequently... I simply don't and then my lips chap. This stuff is the key to lip happiness and keeps them soft without cracking. It's not expensive - try it!

Not really. It's fairly neutral. The woman I spoke with said it's made from grape oil or extract or something, and so there is a VERY faint scent, but again it's fairly neutral. It's nice you want a basic lip replenisher because as you put it on it's not all fake berry smelly (like some lip glosses - I really don't like that).

the lip conditioner is scented, though many people will offhandedly state that this lip conditioner has no scent- but it is probably because the scent that is there is extremely understated. I actually enjoy the scent, when I do notice it. there is a very very light vanilla- ish scent (*not too sweet*). I do not know many people it would bother (* I am extremely sensitive to scented lipglosses and face products, and this does not bother me.*). if you are worried about someone walking by and saying "what smells like vanilla/ strawberries/whateverotherweirdfoodsmelltheymakelipglossflavorsin." then don't worry. its not that obvious.

i agree it was confusing reading the ingredients list and seeing "Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben" when Caudalie claims natural ingredients.
I looked online and found a Caudalie brochure that noted with an asterisk that the lip conditioner is 99.5% natural.

However, the actual list of ingredients on the packaging (I have it infront of me now) includes:
Helianthus Annus (sunflower seed oil), Ricinus Communis (castor seed oil), Cera Alba (beeswax), Oryza Sativa (rice), bran wax, cetyl palmitate butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) extract, Copernica Cerifera (carnauba) wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (candelilla) wax, Vitis Vinifera (grape) seed oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Hydrogenated Stearyl Olive Esters, Prunus Armeniaca (apricot) Kernel Oil, Parfum (fragrance), Palmitoyl Grape Seed Extract, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Glyceryl Oleate, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citric Acid.
