So, I guess I am back from my blogging hiatus and yes, I have a backlog of products to be reviewed. So, I am starting a new “feature” of flash reviews of various products. This time it would be Fresh skin-care. Fresh is a brand which has always intrigued me – they usually have a new spin on ancient ingredients, with beauty recipes from across the world. Who would not be in? Let’s roll!
Fresh Lotus Eye Gel ($56 CAN)
YAY! This is a repeat purchase for me, so I guess that just sums it up. I can feel significant decrease in puffiness and under-eye bags. I love the light texture, it absorbs seamlessly into my skin. This does nothing for wrinkles, however, so it is best used coupled with an anti-wrinkle treatment, which brings us to…
Fresh Age-Delay Eye Concentrate ($100 CAN)
YAY! I decided to invest in it (hey, did you look at the price?) after a Sephora sales associate gave me a generous sample to try. It is an extremely luxurious, thick texture which surprisingly blends in easy into the skin. Does it reduce wrinkles? No, but eases the appearance. I’m one of those people who had lines under their eyes since childhood and with age, I see those lines growing up, ugh! Since I started using it, those lines are not getting bigger, so this cream is best for prevention only. A little goes a long way, but the price is still a bit ridiculous, let’s be honest!
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($45 CAN)
YAY! A mild yay for this one, because it is a nice to have, not a must have. I love it for its mildness and fresh scent of cucumber. The texture is also unique; jelly-like and gooey. Gently cleanses and does not strip the face off, This is not the best product for taking makeup off, like it claims to, however.
Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Cream – ($49 CAN)
YAY! Divinely simple, is how I’d describe it. It is a good basic gel moisturizer, but I didn’t see any additional benefits besides the moisture and fragrance. A wholesome moisturizer which can be enjoyed by most of us out there.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream – ($49 CAN)
NAY! NAY! NAY! Simple reason – it broke me out horribly. I stopped using it and my skin cleared, but I wanted to give it benefit of doubt, so I started to use it again. Humongous mistake! I still can’t figure out what exactly in it was a big culprit, but I have never had a reaction like this to anything. It is a pretty popular moisturizer, so I am guessing I am in the tiniest minority, but I would not touch it with a pole.
