Fresh Skincare Treasures Set

There's still time in the Sephora VIB sale! I'm sure many of you have already loaded up your cart and made some orders. But I'm here for a last minute recommendation on a holiday set by Fresh! This is the Skincare Treasures Set and contains 5 items to try out.

Fresh is very well known for their sugar lip balms and also their skincare. Usually the products are pretty expensive so the holiday sets are a great time to try out the brand at a better value. 

The set features a soy face cleanser, a sugar rose lip balm, a sugar face polish, and the lotus youth preserve face cream and eye cream. The outside packaging features a blue and gold lace detailing and a clear plastic casing so you can see the products. It would make a fantastic splurgey present! I'm now reusing the box as a storage container. The set costs $90CAD with a value of $119.  With 20% off, the set is only $72!

Soy Fresh Cleanser- 50mL
I realized that I don't have many gel cleansers as I've mainly been using cleansing oils in my skincare. It was nice to have a simple, no fuss cleanser that I can use with my Foreo Play. I was able to use this around the eye area without irritation and the cleanser took off my eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. It has a very fresh smell kind of like watermelon and cucumber combined together. This is one of fresh's most well known products.

Fresh Sugar Rose- 4.3g
I feel like this lip balm doesn't need an instruction as it's in so many fresh/Sephora sets. I love the line up of Sugar lip balms but rose is probably one of my lesser favorite colors. Also since it's in so many sets, it begins to loose it's appeal. However, if you haven't tried Fresh lip balms yet, this is amazing! The packaging is a luxurious screw cap and has a nice weight to it. It is surprisingly pigmented for a lip balm and will give you a nice wash of red color.

Sugar Face Polish - 30g
Fresh makes a pretty famous sugar lip scrub and it looks like now there's something similar for the face. It is a thick paste and very gritty when first applied to the face. However, with some gentle massaging, the grains quickly disappear so you can get a more soothing exfoliation. Then you are suppose to leave it on for 5-10 minutes. During this time the product doesn't dry down on your skin but instead you can feel it adding nutrients to your skin.

I love that this was easy to rinse off. I stay away from non-sheet masks most of the time as I find the rinse is so time consuming. But this came off easily! This does leave the skin with a light oil film but it feels moisturized instead of greasy. My skin was left feeling smooth and dead skin gone!  Also this smells delicious if you haven't guessed.

Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream- 30mL
The face cream in this set has a similar smell as the Soy Face Cleanser. It's a very light and refreshing cucumber/watermelon smell. It is meant to be an age-defying moisturizer to prevent visible signs of aging. The texture is very light weight and sinks in quick so although it's meant for day and night, I'd say it's more of a day cream. It's been working well on my dry skin and has kept any flaky areas at bay!

Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream- 5mL
In the same range, there is also a lightweight eye cream meant for age-defying. The texture is also very light. I've been using this especially after I take off my eye makeup as I feel I irritate my eye area. This makes the area feel more calm and moisturized. I haven't noticed any effects but I do enjoy how it feels around my eye area.

The outside packaging has a gold and light blue motif and the lid fully pops off. Inside the products are on a gold cardboard that's removable so you can have a storage box if you take it out. All the products in this kit have the same packaging as the full size products. So everything feels luxurious and nothing feels like a "sample"

It's a really great set that covers all the basis of basic skincare! If you've been curious about fresh products, this is an awesome chance to try out a ton of different products! If you missed the sale, there's also a few other sets under $30 which would be great for stocking stuffers.

What did you haul from the recent sale? Have you used fresh skincare before?
