Do you remember the first time you tried a product from one of your favourite beauty brands? I was introduced to Fresh Beauty through the Sephora Birthday gift which included Fresh’s Sugar Rose Lip Balm; It has since become one of my must haves. You could raid my bag any given day, and you will find it there. So since my first impression with the brand was such a positive one, I was eager to try all the products I could get my hands on. Over the years I have found more of my favourites, including soy cleansers, masks, and scrubs; yet there was a step in my skincare regimine that had yet to perfect: Toner.
The main goal of a toner is to cleanse any impurities left behind after washing, and to shrink the appearance of pores. I have tried many brands, and have never felt much loyalty to any over the years, because I found most left my skin feeling uncomfortably tight, and never left my skin looking any better than without it, plus having incredibly sensitive skin, I have always been wary of using a product that contains alcohol, or something that would further aggravate my face.
When I first saw Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner, I was intrigued (first off by the floating rose petals) and then by the words “Deep Hydration” and alcohol-free.” I had never found anything about toners to be hydrating, so I knew I needed to give this a try. After using it on a daily basis for a few weeks, I noticed that the dry patches of my skin started to clear up, and typically during this time of year is when they get worse. I also noticed my skin looking less dull, and more even.
I have combination skin, so finding products that target all my needs can be tricky, but the Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner is designed for normal, oily, dry, sensitive, and combination skin. It also contains rosewater and rose flower oil especially to help soothe and nourish the skin, while angelica leaf extract and hyaluronic acid help to retain moisture.
For maximum hydration I followed the toner with Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Creme. This moisturizer has time-release technology to increase hydration levels by sealing in moisture throughout the day. After a few weeks of regular use I have noticed a huge improvement in my overall appearance of my skin, plus it feels less dry, which is always the goal.
Plus who doesn’t love to wake up and smell the roses… literally!
