Latest Skincare Obsession
I've learned that if you want an honest opinion about something, you should ask a kid. They are basically incapable of sugar coating anything, and they definitely don't understand tact yet...
In freshman year of college, I taught 1st grade Sunday school with my best friend Nikkie. The kids were adorable and each week there there was at least one or two LOL questions or comments.
But it's also a really honest age... I remember one Sunday, this kid turned to me and asked,
"Miss Jessica, what are those red dots all over your face?"
Sigh, there it was. The unfiltered truth. My acne was actually bad despite friends and family reassuring me that "it wasn't that noticeable". You cut me deep kid, you cut me real deep.
Fortunately, my skin has come a long way from my college days (you can read more about that journey here), but I always keep my eyes open for new solutions and products. Which brings me to FRE...
FRE reached out to me via Instagram a few weeks ago to see if I was interested in trying their products.
Now I love getting things in the mail just as much as anyone, but I also don't blindly support a product just because it has cute packaging (which FRE does).
So I did my stalker level due diligence and read up on the ingredients and company values (I love investigating the latest and greatest in the health and fitness scene, so it wasn't really much of an ask). But FRE passed both categories with flying colors.
All of their products are vegan, not tested on animals, free of parabens, and have an SPF of 30 (which is great, most skincare stops at 15). They also plant an Argan tree for every set sold to empower women’s communities who harvest Argan in Morocco.
My favorite part about this skincare though is that it is formulated specifically for women who sweat (oh hello there). Acne breakouts are one of those downsides that no one really talks about with regards to workouts, but as long as you find good products and drink a lot of water, it doesn't need to be an issue.
I received my starter kit, and it comes with a cute little carrying bag (points for creativity).
The product smells amazing which is also a huge bonus. I've found that with natural or healthy products, sometimes the smell is... not the best part let's just say. But the Argan oil (the star of the show for this brand) has a really nice fresh scent.
But the reason I'm currently obsessed with this product and wanted to share it with you, is because it works surprisingly quickly! I've only been using it for a little over a week, and my skin is much clearer than it has been in a while (I got pretty sick a few months ago and it really threw my gut out of wack, which in turn caused me to breakout more than normal). So while I've been in the acne game long enough to know that no product can deliver overnight results, I've been extremely impressed and and pleased with this product. I highly recommend giving it a try, especially for anyone who sweats on the regular.
