Lip care is an essential part of my everyday skincare routine and no doubt, dry parched lips does not make you feel comfortable and confident. I have been using the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops Advanced Therapy, Fresh Sugar Coconut Hydrating Lip Balm, and Sugar Spice Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen 15.

Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops Advanced Therapy is a daily treatment gently exfoliates, softens, and smoothes dry, flaky lips to keep them looking flawless and ready for lipstick. It is enriched with AHAs—a blend of sugar and natural fruit extracts and hibiscus flower extract. It is a lightweight water-based formula that preps and primes the lips’ surface and improves signs of damage for a youthful look. I have been using it as a quick fix and is perfect for the busy, on-the-go lifestyle and gentle enough to use twice a day.  To use it, dispense a drop on your finger. Then, massage over clean lips and lip contour area. Wait until it absorbs and then follow with your favorite balm or lipstick.

Fresh skincare products have been a regular part of my skincare routine for daily need of my skin as well as those weekly go-to top-ups for the skin like masks, exfoliators. I have been really enjoying the new launches from the brand which are all about glow and protection against pollution and free radicals. I have been using the Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence and two new launches for the Vitamin Nectar range of the brand, called Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water.

Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder, and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water

Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder, and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water

I have been using this essence for over two months as I feel the need for it. while using it, I do feel it has improved my skin tone and overall look of my skin, it looks healthy and refined. I do not use it twice but mostly once a day either in the day or in the night after cleansing my face. I am pretty sure I would be fine to use it twice a day in the winters. I put few drops on the cotton pad and apply over face, neck and decollete avoiding the eye area. It feels a little sticky at first but absorbs nicely into the skin with feeling any stickiness or residue. Then I follow with my serum and moisturizer.

Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder is a 30-second foaming facial that instantly brightens and tightens pores with 20% vitamin C. The powder to foam treatment refines the skin’s texture for a healthy, youthful glow. Enriched with our vitamin fruit complex and supercharged with vitamin C, the invigorating formula creates an effervescent citrus lather that awakens your skin to achieve an amazing glow.

Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder, and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water

I tear the folded packet to open, pour the powders into on hand, mix with one teaspoon of water to create lather. Then I massage it into the skin for 20-30 seconds and rinse. This, for me, has been a really nice boost to the skin when my skin is feeling dull or lifeless. It gives a beautiful glow and radiance to the skin. The powder to foam formula is amazing and massaging it feels nice on the skin, does not irritates the skin.

Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water is a hydrating, fast-drying spray that delivers skin nutrition on the go with a refreshing surge of antioxidant protection for a healthy, dewy glow. The alcohol-free, ultra-fine mist is packed with nutrients to make the skin have the lit-from-within glow. It can be used in three ways, as a cooling primer, makeup-setter, and for an instant refresh.

Skincare has been my priority since last five years and I am glad I have been getting more and more serious with time while at the same time. I am getting to know my skin better. At one time, I am testing a number of products and I have so many amazing new finds to share with you guys, expect a regular series of posts on skincare products I have been testing since last few months. I usually share about skincare products when I feel I am ready, I do not rush when it comes to skincare, because one thing might work for me and same could not work for another skin type. Being in my 30s, I feel more importance of skincare and skincare products that I am using on mine skin. Aging is a natural process, the only thing I can do for myself is to maintain what I have so that it is the better version of what I could have been at any age. Today, I am sharing few products from Fresh Beauty which I have been enjoying. I have used the Fresh Sugar Lip treatments reviewed here and also the Fresh hand creams are my favorite.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

The first thing I noticed about this cleanser is how gentle it is and another great thing is it can be used on the gentle eye area. Many of the cleansers out there are either advised to be used anywhere but not around the gentle eye area or some might sting or irritate the eye area. This cleanser has become a skincare staple for me, it is so gentle on my eye area as well as works perfectly to clean the face without stripping it. The cleanser is gel-like, so lightweight, very easy to use and gently washes away with water. I am really impressed, no doubt why this cleanser is sold one every minute around the world. There is a limited edition version which is double the size of the full-sized version, perfect to stock up on your favorite and if you are new to the brand and the cleanser, there is the smallest size version which is good enough to use for few weeks. I am definitely a fan of this cleanser and highly recommend.

With Indian background, I have used rose in various ways, like rose water, rose in the desserts, like all the benefits of rose and then having it all inside and outside. For my combination skin, I first thought the deep hydration will be too much, so I started using it once a day instead of twice. It does not irritate my skin and I experienced no breakouts. My skin feels soft and clear. The smell is heavenly and I notice my pore size looks better. It is a great toner which I am going to use this summer once a day and definitely twice a day during season change and in winters.
