Well, it's been a while since I last used a lip balm, so I was rather interested to find these Mentholatum Sugar Lip lip balms at my doorstep a couple months back.
Its formulation features brown sugar in the recipe, which works to nourish and smoothen your lips. It also acts as a natural humectant that seals in moisture and keeps lips feeling hydrated. Makes sense, as most - if not all - homemade lip scrubs have brown sugar as the main ingredient. I received two out of the four shades available in Malaysia: 02 Dancing Pink and 04 Rock'n Pink.

Design flaw notwithstanding, the Sugar Lip lip balms have no discernible scent or taste, which is okay by me and great if you're not a fan of scented lip products. There are 4 colours in total for the Sugar Lip range, and each shade differs in tone and intensity, from the lightest (01) to most vibrant (04).

Besides the two shades featured here, these Sugar Lip lip balms (3g) are also available in 01 Vintage Pink and 03 Kissy Pink. They retail at RM15.80 each, and are sold at all leading pharmacies and major supermarkets nationwide.
