Trying Fresh Skincare

When I was over in Orlando back in December, I picked a couple of Fresh skincare bits up, and I loved them - I would highly recommend the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturiser. Because I was really impressed with the items I had, I decided to make a little order on their website to try out a few more products.
First up, is the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, which is available in two size, 150ml for £30.00 and the one I got, 50ml for £11.50. I decided to go for the smaller one because as a blogger I get to try out quite a lot of skincare, so even though the larger size is better value, I opted for the smaller one. The Soy Face Cleanser is one Fresh's cult products and is a pH-balanced gel cleanser which is suitable for all skin types. It is amazing at removing makeup, even mascara, and it doesn't dry out the skin and leaves it lovely and soft. The formula includes amino acid-rich soy proteins, calming cucumber extract, which is great for sensitive skin types, and balancing rosewater. It has a very delicate fragrance which is mainly cucumber, so it is light and refreshing to use in a morning. As with all cleansers, this should be used daily, both morning and evening and I find it is a very effective cleanser that leaves my skin super soft.
Because I wear makeup most days, I do like to use an exfoliator at least once a week just to ensure all makeup is fully removed and to rid my skin of any dead skin cells. Therefore, I also ordered the Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash, which again is available in this 50ml size for £12.00 or 125ml for £26.00. Even though this is a Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash, I don't think it smells all that strawberry-like. However, this gentle exfoliating cleanser removes impurities and excess oil while refining pores to leave the skin feeling super smooth and soft. Key ingredients within this Face Wash include a customised blend of white sugar crystals to smooth and soften the skin, strawberry and blackcurrant fruit extracts to maintain a healthy-looking complexion, grapeseed oil to maintain hydration and soap berry peel extract to gently cleanse the skin. With this being an exfoliating cleanser, I don't personally like to use it twice a day, so I would use a regular cleanser in a morning and then this one on an evening.
Fresh are renowned for their Lip Treatments and so I ordered the Fresh Sugar Mint Rush Freshening Lip Treatment (£19.50). I love anything minty, especially when it comes to lip products and this lip treatment smells minty without being overpowering, which I really enjoy. The formula is a 24 hour moisturising treatment that uses a duo of time-release technologies and it is super fresh and nourishing on the lips. It is slightly pricey for a lip treatment, but because it lasts for up to 24 hours, you only need to apply it once a day. It comes a glossy ombre-effect tube which you have to twist to secure the lid, which I really like, because let's be honest how many times have you gone to grab a lip balm or product out of your bag and the lid has come off? There are tinted versions of these balms available, so I think I would definitely look at those for the warmer months when I don't want anything too heavy.
The final product is actually a repurchase as I received the same item in a gift set with the Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturiser I bought in Orlando. It is the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream, which costs £17.00 for 15ml and £45.00 for 50ml, and yes that is a little expensive, but this stuff works wonders for the skin and as it is a night cream, you only need to apply on an evening. It comes in a frosted dark blue glass jar and this night recovery cream is powered by antioxidant Super Lotus, which helps strengthen the skin barrier whilst also fighting dullness and dehydration and so it worked wonders for my skin during that really cold spell we had. This night time moisturiser works while you sleep and so you can awaken to smooth, renewed, radiant skin. It smells relaxing and dreamy and I would definitely repurchase again once I have used this one up.
You can find Fresh skincare online here.

All the Loves,
