When it comes to skincare brands, I have a lot of favourites. One of those is definitely Fresh.
I’ve tried my fair share of products from the brand and consistently find that they work for my skin. Right now I’m currently using a few different skincare goodies from the brand and truthfully, my skin is just loving every minute of it. I also love that the brand is a clean one and they don’t include any parabens, MIT/MCI, formaldehyde and formaldehyde donors, BHA, phthalates, silicons D4 and D6, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban.
If you are looking into trying some products from the brand but don’t know where to start, here are three products I’m currently loving and recommend.
Fresh Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash
If you aren’t familiar with Fresh’s Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash (C$49/150ml) then you’re probably living under a rock.
I’m just kidding, but in all seriousness, this face wash is a cult classic, and for good reason. Suitable for all skin types, it targets dryness, dullness, uneven texture, loss of firmness and elasticity. It’s a lightweight gel that gently removes makeup, impurities, and tones for clean and balanced skin.
The pH-balanced formula is very gentle on the skin and thoroughly cleans your face while also nourishing it. Some star ingredients include amino acid-rich soy proteins to help maintain skin elasticity and suppleness; cucumber extract to aid in soothing skin; and rosewater to calm and balance.
I will say, $49 for this cleanser is a little steep, but I really do love it and there is a reason why it is so popular. Anyone can use it and it really makes your skin radiant. It’s the perfect cleanser to use morning and night to clean your skin.
Fresh Rose Petal-Soft Deep Hydration Lip Balm
Dry lips? Try out Fresh’s Rose Petal-Soft Deep Hydration Lip Balm (C$32).
Housed in a jar, this hydrating and soft lip balm gently conditions and helps to nourish dry and flaky lips.
Open up the jar to reveal a rose-scented balm that contains rose flower oil to moisturize and soothe dry lips; a blend of emollient oils to visibly soften and moisturize; as well as vitamin e to protect.
You can pair this with their Sugar Lip Polish for the ultimate in lip self care.
With regular use you’ll find that this balm will also help with your lips’ texture, making them look soft and kissable.
Fresh Black Tea Corset Cream Firming Moisturizer
I recently ran out of my beloved Neostrata Firming Neck Cream, so when I saw I had the Fresh Black Tea Corset Cream Firming Moisturizer (C$125) laying around, I thought it would be a good alternative to try.
This firming cream for the face and neck is suitable for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, and helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, and loss of firmness and elasticity. It contains their black tea complex, goji fruit extract, and a firming peptide to help lift and tighten skin, as well as improve elasticity for younger-looking skin.
If your main skincare concern includes fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, and a loss of firmness and elasticity, then I think you’ll really love this moisturizer.
Another product I highly recommend you try out is their Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, which I love (I’m already on my second bottle!). I have blogged about this product before, which you can read here.
If you are looking for a clean beauty brand and haven’t tried Fresh yet, then you need to get your hands (or rather, skin) on some products. These three are great ones to try out and will really help nourish your skin.

It seems like the hottest new release for the summer are bronzers.
Seeing as it’s the season to be tan, this obviously makes so much sense, and no matter how many bronzers I have in my collection, I always get so excited when new ones show up at my door.
I’ve tried a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products and something that was lacking from her line was a stand-alone bronzer. I have the Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette and the Glowgasm palette, and although I do like the bronzer in the Filmstar one, I found the bronzer in Glowgasm to be really lacking in pigmentation (this is one of few products from the brand that I found to be a bit disappointing).
With that being said, when she released her new Airbrush Bronzer (C$65, which I participated in the Zoom press call for), I was really excited to try it out. This bronzer joins their Airbrush family, meaning that it won’t settle into pores and gives you that iconic airbrush look that her other products are known for.
This palette is quite large and comes in a beautiful rose gold packaging that looks like a seashell and contains hyaluronic acid powder, coconut oil, soft-focus silica, and mica, meaning that it applies flawlessly to skin, giving you the perfect summer glow while also hydrating your skin. Sounds like the best bronzer ever, am I right?!
This bronzer is available in four shades, Fair, Medium, Tan, and Deep, and in designing this, her team tested the shades on a variety of skin tones ensuring that none of them looked orange on the skin. I got the shade Medium and really like it. It gives you the perfect amount of glow without look muddy. Think vacation in St. Tropez rather than tanning bed.
This bronzer is also refillable, which is a feature I love meaning that there is less waste and if you love it so much you always want it in your life then you can buy a second one for a cheaper price (since the refillable doesn’t need the container). She will be releasing the refills for these later this year.
If you’re looking for the ultimate bronze glow, then pair her new Airbrush Bronzer with her Desert Haze Luxury Palette (C$66).
This eyeshadow quad is made up of four neutral matte shades that are warm tones. There is no sparkle or glitter here, instead you get four shades that I find are staples in my makeup collection.
The shades range from light to dark and contain a peachy nude, a deep orange/brown, a deep brown, and a medium brown. Since these are all mattes, you can wear them a variety of ways and this is the kind of palette that is good to have on hand when using other palettes with various formulas.
Truthfully, these are the kinds of shades that I use often in my eyeshadow routine, so I was really excited about this palette since I know it will get a lot of wear. I found them to apply really nicely and the blended out wonderfully as well.
Overall, I’m loving these two new releases and find them the perfect summer beauty products since they are so versatile to wear. I’ve been getting in a lot of new bronzers lately and have loved them all, but I do love the included skincare benefits that this one has in particular.
As always, Charlotte Tilbury knocked it out of the park with these products and I highly recommend checking them out.

Looking for the perfect summertime lipstick?
Okay, so I know lipsticks are kind of hard to pull off right now due to the whole mask situation, but if you are looking for something hydrating, glossy, and the right amount of colour, then you need to try Fenty Beauty’s new Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipsticks (C$29).
These lipsticks, available in 10 shades, are a sheer lipstick that gives you comfort and colour, as well as the right amount of shine. Unlike their other lipsticks, these are more hydrating in texture and give off a more sheer colour rather than a pigmented one.
The shade range in here is quite vast, meaning you’ll definitely find the right colour for you (and lots of nudes, might I add, a total plus in my books!). These lipsticks, which are cruelty-free like all of Fenty’s products, are infused with pomegranate butter to condition your lips and keep them hydrated as you wear it. With that being said, there is still some substance in here and it doesn’t feel like your typical lip balm since it stays in place and doesn’t slide around. I also want to add that some of the shades have some added sparkle in them making them extra show stopping.
Although some of the colours definitely look bold when you open the tubes (like Vamps Who Brunch), they do give off more of a subtle colour, but still enough that it’s noticeable on the lips. In swatching these, I was actually quite impressed with how they turned out and even the shades I didn’t think I would like that much, I ended up really enjoying how they looked on once applied.
Regardless of if you are wearing a mask or not, I do recommend picking up a shade or two from this collection since it’s really a triple whammy. You get sheer colour, hydration, and some glossy vibes. I mean, what else could you possibly want from a lip product?
