Fresh Skincare

January 9, 2017

Last month was my birthday so I had to get over to Sephora to collect my birthday gift. I’ve been a fan of their previous gifts, the NARS lip pencils which are excellent, but they’ve changed things up and now they offer other stuff. I had to choose between Marc Jacobs makeup samples or the Fresh skincare so I decided to go with the skincare since that’s what I’m into more these days rather than makeup.

Umbrian Clay Purifying Facial Toner – I’ve been on the market for a toner after not using one for a month or so, I badly needed one to help with some breakouts that I was battling. This toner is very different from any other ones that I’ve tried in the past because you have shake it up (the clay separates) and it comes out on the cotton swab brown in color. It’s different but I think it really helped clear up my skin and overall it feels very pleasant. I don’t know that I will stick to it because I want to keep trying different toners but it’s a good option for troubled skin.

Soy Face Cleanser – The most amazing cleanser I’ve ever used. I’m going out and buying a full sized one as soon as I run out of my current Glossier cleanser. It also has a gel consistency but it has a pleasant cucumber smell and is very gentle on the face. A little bit goes a long way and it removes makeup very well. Best of all it doesn’t ever sting my eyes whenever I’m removing makeup, and that’s important. It’s pricy for a cleanser but the sample lasted me a good month so I think the full sized one will be worth it.

Rose Face Mask – Great mask, I wish it was overnight rather than just a 10 minute mask but I feel like it does a decent job moisturizing in a short period of time. It smells good and you don’t need a lot of it but I don’t think I would get the full sized one because I prefer sleeping masks.

Have you tried anything by Fresh? What’s your favorite thing?

  • You’re making me want to retry the cleanser and the toner sounds really nice– I’m definitely going to look into it!

    • Have you tried it before?! I guess I’m a sucker for basic cleansers lol. The toner is good if you don’t mind the brown color of it, truthfully I don’t think Fresh could do wrong with any of their products.

      • I think I tried it a while ago and thought it was just so-so, so when I got the birthday sample I didn’t open it (yet).

  • I’m a huge fan of face masks – that rose face mask sounds delightful! Have you heard of the Jeju Volcanic Lava face mask? That’s my favorite!

    • it’s a decent mask but unfortunately not overnight! I haven’t heard of Jeju volcanic clay mask but I’m really eager to try more Korean masks so I will for sure have to check it out!
