Fresh Facial Products

So, I was in Vegas a year ago.  We had a wonderful dinner and too much wine.  One of the few things open was a Fresh retail store.  By the time we picked a few things out and went to the register, my eyes were popping out and I was completely sober.  Seriously, nothing sobers you quicker than sticker shock.  The look on my husband's face; priceless.  But, since I am his Princess, he saved face and bought them anyway.  Unlike Paris Hilton, I left Vegas with a smile on my face, no mugshot, and a beautiful complexion. What?  You don't think she broke out after that?

While the products were pricier than I was used to, I liked every single one of them but one and my face has thanked me.  Fresh uses natural ingredients like sugar, milk, soy, and rice.

First the Sugar Lip Treatment.

It is yummy and feels so silky on my lips.  It has SPF 15. Since I just started weight watchers, and it contains sugar, I'm really not sure if licking it costs me points.  How about we keep this between you and me. The price on this one is a bit harsh but nothing I have ever used has felt so good on my lips.  The texture and taste win hands down.


Soy Face Cleanser

My skin is really sensitive. I had a bad glycolic facial treatment and it burned my skin.  I had such a perfect complexion before that. People would stop me on the street and ask me what I used.  Since then, I have to be really carefully to use natural ingredients or my skin burns.   Isn't it amazing how much memory our skin has to traumatic events?

I love this cleanser. It smells like cucumber and it gets my face really clean with minimal effort. I can't say enough about this product.  If you're going to try anything, try this one.  It is definitely part of my daily cleansing ritual.

Sugar Face Polish

This is kind of an odd product. It smells awesome. It does have sugary texture.You don't need much of it. I dampen my face a little bit and then smooth it on. You don't play with the application.  Let it sit for 5 minutes or so and wash it off. It almost feel like a layer of wax protectant is left on my skin.  It feels and looks wonderful.  All dead skin is removed and you feel refreshed.

Soy Face Cream

This was the only one I didn't like and it has nothing to do with the effectiveness of the product. My nose is sensitive too, and I just don't like how it smells.  It's a moisturizing cream. I did notice that my bottle looks different from the one they have on their site now. So, maybe they changed the formula a bit.  I'm definitely willing to try the product again since I love all the other ones I have tried.

If you're willing to splurge a little to have beautiful skin, these are great products. Considering how long they have lasted me, I would say that it was worth the price.  Let me know if you have tried any of these and what you think.
