Fresh is a brand I've wanted to try forever. Fresh is a skincare line that really focuses on creating responsible, good for you skincare products. This cleanser is from their "Soy" line which is suitable for all skin types. Fresh was one of the first companies to take beneficial natural ingredients like soy, and infuse them in high quality skincare products for the public market. I have combination skin that can get irritated easily, so I naturally wanted to check out this line and see what it was all about.
This "Soy" line from Fresh comes with Shampoo, Eye Makeup Remover, Exfoliant, Moisturizer and a Cleanser. I decided to try out the cleanser first.
Brand's Official Product Description: "The Soy Face Cleanser from Fresh instantly whisks away everyday impurities and makeup—even mascara—without stripping the skin of essential moisture. Rich in amino acids, soy proteins support moisture retention, giving skin the appearance of elasticity and firmness while rosewater balances and tones the skin. Calming cucumber extract and nourishing borage seed oil enrich the formula, which is fragrance- and soap-free. In the early nineties, there was a buzz about the health benefits of soy, but no one was exploring its effects on the skin. We found that it is highly rich in amino acids, which help with cell turnover, and introduced soy to the beauty market in 1999."
My Personal Product Description: My favorite cleanser yet! This is a gentle cleanser that doesn't burn, itch, feel harsh or hurt the eyes. It easily washes away even my toughest makeup, like my liquid liner. My skin feels firmer, clean, refreshed and smells great after I use this cleanser. It doesn't make me break out, or cause my combination skin any irritation. This is a perfect, naturally derived cleanser for someone not sure where to start within this line. It's suitable for all skin types, is soft, yet is truly a powerhouse and will leave your skin feeling clean and makeup free.
Packaging: This cleanser comes in a tube, with a flip lid. It's easy to use, secure, stands easily and the dispenser dispenses the right amount of product easily without getting it everywhere. Simple, yet effective. The text is easily read, with the harmful ingredients it doesn't have listed on the back. Simple, but just a great package. No complaints. . 5/5
Price: I purchased the 5fl oz tube at about $38.00, which wasn't bad at all. It's a fairly large tube. After about two months of usage this is still almost full. You'll get a lot of use out of this cleanser, because a little goes a long way. Cheaper cleansers at drug stores just don't give the same results. My skin feels amazing after I use it, and even tingly! Worth every penny! 5/5
Accessibility: Fresh sells their products at Ulta, Sephora and their Website www.fresh.com. Very easily found, but not sold in drugstores, probably due to the high quality of the ingredients. 5/5
Smell: The smell of this cleanser is so simple yet very clean and fresh. You can smell the hint of cucumber extract that this product has infused within it, but other than that this product is 100% Fragrance Free, with no synthetic additives to aid the scent. All you smell is the natural cucumber ingredient within the product that moisturizes as it cleanses. I loved that it didn't have anything in it that I didn't need on my skin while I'm cleansing it. 5/5
Product Texture: This is a gel like cleanser. It isn't wet, and it isn't thick. The consistency is somewhere in-between, and is easily dispensed from the tube and applied with no issues. Oh, and it isn't gritty or harsh! I applied it to my eyes to take off my eye makeup, and it did so wonderfully with no burning or itching. 5/5
Special Features of this Product: This cleanser is Fragrance free, Soap Free, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Phthalate free! No nasty ingredients. It is infused with cucumber, Rosewater, Amino rich soy, and borage seed oil that you'll notice after cleansing. Your skin will feel clean, tingly, and fresh!
Travel Size: Yes, comes in 50ml
Can you use for everyday Use?: Yes! This cleanser is gentle and yet effective enough for everyday use. You'll want to use it too because your skin will feel more supple, more smooth, toned and in general ready for the day ( or night ) after using. I just love the feeling it gives my skin after a long day!
Tips and Tricks with this product: Use this on your harshest makeup and watch as it washes away with no issues! I love this product because for once, my liquid eyeliner is simply washed off without irritation and without burning my eyes. This product is a beast! Yet, it's naturally derived. Try it on your strongest cosmetics when washing.
Overall Review: Looking for a new cleanser that will easily wash away even your strongest makeup like mascara and liner, yet want something created with healthy, and natural products? This cleanser is effective, soft, gentle, non-irritating, not harsh, and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, supple, makeup free and moisturized. Doesn't leave skin feeling dry, and won't irritate combination skin. I love the natural scent the cucumber extract gives this product. I use this cleanser everyday, with no issues, and my skin is much more radiant because of it! My favorite cleanser yet!
