If you're a skincare junkie, you probably use chemical exfoliators within your skincare routine. But do you use a chemical exfoliator for the lips? Meet the new Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops which launched a few weeks ago.
I've only ever used lip scrubs to exfoliate my lips, so I'm really intrigued by this Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops as it sounded like something that would be good to apply to the lips at night before bed.
Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops
This liquid leave-on smoothing solution gently resurfaces and softens dry, flaky lips on contact for a flawless look.
Enriched with AHAs—a blend of sugar, natural fruit extracts, and hibiscus flower extract—the water-based gel preps and primes lips for an even application of any lipstick or balm.

Dispense a drop of the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops and massage over clean lips and lip contour area until it absorbs.
Follow with your favorite lipstick for silky, pigmented colour.
- Sugar and fruit extract blend helps to retexturize the lips while leaving them soft and radiant.
- Hibiscus flower extract helps to gently refine the look of the lips’ surface through non-mechanical exfoliation.
The Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops are £21.50 and contain just 5ml of product. That is such a small amount of product for the price, but you do only supposedly need one drop for both lips, so although you do only get a tiny amount of product for your money, it should still last a decent amount of time if you are only using one drop per use.
The Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops are packaged within a white glass bottle, with a glass pipette dispenser and you dispense a drop onto your fingertip and then massage into the lips.
It looks as if the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops have a viscous, almost serum consistency and is clear in colour.
Just playing devil's advocate, the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops is specifically for the lips, but I'm sure you could probably use your normal facial exfoliator on your lips and not need a specific lip exfoliator. But I'd like to think that this one has been created for the lips so it's safe if you were to ingest any.
Obviously, nobody is going to be purposely eating the drops but whenever you apply a product to the lips, it inevitably gets into your mouth, so I think it would be perhaps a little safer to use a chemical exfoliator that has been designed for the lips specifically.
£21.50 does feel pricey for such a small amount of product as you could just make your own manual exfoliator lip scrub with some granulated sugar and coconut oil.
However, DIY lip scrubs can be messy, whereas the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops do look like they'd be easy and quick to use whilst on the go, and there's no clean up needed after you've used it.
You can just apply and leave it on the lips. I would recommend reading the reviews on the Fresh website, as they're definitely very mixed but if you like the idea of a leave on product that'll exfoliate your lips, the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops is available right now.
