SUP with Fré skincare
Last month we did a freelance job with Fré skincare. (article here) During the job and hearing the owner talk about the product, I was intrigued. So I decided to try the Fré routine. A month later, I can finally do a legit review.
I am going to be honest, I am very bad with skincare. I barely do the minimum, and my skincare routine is mostly based on coconut oil and rose water. Since I turned 30, I wanted to invest more into my skin, so I’ve been checking around websites and youtube channels. I am clearly no expert, but I had my expectations …
I wanted something light, natural, cruelty free and efficient!
My biggest skincare frustration had always been with sunscreen. I hate it! But in the summer being in the water on a daily basis I have to put sunscreen (when I remember to). I hate the white mask on my face when I put sunscreen and the greasiness. And it’s even worse when I sweat or go in the water. I usually buy the Avène one because it’s the least greasy in the market. So when Fré promises an ultra-light SPF 30 cream, I had to try it!
The product review
As you may know from my previous article, FRÉ is the first facial skincare solution for the sweaty skin.
FRÉ is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. For every skincare set sold, an Argan tree is planted to empower women communities that harvest their core ingredient in Morocco, Argan and to protect the environment.Their core product, the 123FRÉ Set is a comprehensive 3-step skincare routine that prevents sweat-induced skin damage – breakouts, dehydration and the signs of ageing – while promoting a natural glow.
I cant’ really vouch for the anti-breaking effects because I don’t have pimples when I eat health…
The best skincare comes from the inside! That, I can vouch for!
So my real expectations above the composition and the ethical side were more about the texture and eventually the smell, especially for the SPF day dream.
There are 3 products in the 123 set: PURIFY ME, a facial cleanser that I use day and night, PROTECT ME a day cream with an SPF 30 protection and REVIVE ME a replenishing serum. I use the cleanser twice a day, the day cream during the day and I use the serum as a night cream and eye serum.
Result: The texture is light and absorbed easily by the skin. The PROTECT ME cream is a miracle for me, it’s almost like I’m not wearing nothing. It’s light, invisible and doesn’t clog the pores, letting the skin breathing especially during a workout… And waterproof! The smell is not strong and very delicate, it smells botanica, like nature. My skin is left instantly hydrated but not greasy!
I will probably have more to say about the products the more I use it.
The ethical side
In addition to that, I love supporting independent businesses. I met one of the founders, he’s so passionate about his project and they are constantly putting effort to do more and better. I want to support them even more since they are doing a lot for Moroccan women empowerment. Fré promises to plant an argan tree for every set sold. And our job was to document the experience in the region of Essaouira. Here is the video that Omar made for them by the way. There is a corporate video to document the argan plantation ritual and a social media video ad with their ambassador Talia Sutra.
Today I am happy to announce that I am a Fré ambassador and if you ever want to try their amazing products I have a discount code for you. I highly recommend it for all of you active and outdoorsy women
