Fresh Naturals is lovely small brand which creates fresh, handmade, cruelty free, vegan friendly, SLS & paraben free skincare, soaps and body products which cater for lots of different skin types. I contacted them a little while ago as I was really intrigued by their products and in return I was asked what I use in my current skincare routine and what skin type I had. I was then sent a lovely pamper pack of products which I couldn’t wait to try!
First up we have the Tea Tree and Lemon Clay Mask & Cleanser Duo. This contains Kaolin and Bentonite to cleanse the skin as well as shea butter, argan oil and vitamin E to nourish and moisturise. This can be used as an everyday cleanser with a light layer of product or as a face mask if you use a thicker layer and leave it on for 5 – 10 minutes. I have been using this everyday morning and evenings as a cleanser so I rinse my face with warm water and while it’s still wet apply the product all over and use circular motions to massage into the skin for a minute before rinsing off with warm water. I then 1 – 2 times a week, apply a thicker layer to my most problem areas, so around my mouth and chin mostly and leave it for 10 minutes before washing off. I love the smell of tea tree and its really gentle on my skin and leaves it squeaky clean and cleansed. I really enjoy using this and even though my mini pot was 20ml it still lasted me 3 weeks so I think the 100ml one will last a good amount of time and it’s only £6.50 to buy! I definitely need another one and to try the others too!
Next up we have the Natural Repair Oil for Skin & Hair. I have mainly been using this instead of my regular moisturiser, straight after using the tea tree mask & cleanser duo in an evening. This has Pure Grape Seed Oil, Scottish Ola Oil, Lavender, Geranium and Carrot Seed Essential Oils in just to name a few within the ingredients. This means it not only helps to calm acne breakouts, sooth, moisturise and brighten the skin it’s also very easily absorbed even into oily skin like mine. I’ve always avoided using oils because of my combination skin as I just thought it would make it more oily but this has completely changed my perception! It sinks straight into my skin leaving it soft and nourished and I love it. I definitely prefer it to a regular moisturiser in the evening, it just feels so much nicer. Again I only received a 25ml pot of this but you hardly need any to cover your entire face. I did struggle to get used to getting the right amount out onto my hand and the first few times I wasted a lot of product, but even so this little pot is going to last me a long while! It can also be used on the hair to help lock in moisture, shine and leave you hair healthy and lovely. I have to say as well that my mum loves this too! She tried some and said it felt just like being at the spa so now she wants to order her own and she keeps checking the website for when it comes back in stock!
Last but not least in the skincare department I also received this lovely little Peppermint & Eucalyptus Pumice Soap. This little gem can not only be used as a regular soap on your hands but also as a cleanser on your face! The Peppermint in the soap cools and calms the skin while the Eucalyptus helps to heal the skin too which sounds perfect for breakouts. I do think that this can be a tiny little bit rough on the skin but it does do a good job of making your skin clean, cleansed and fresh. I definitely prefer the cleanser & mask duo to this but it’s still nice for something a little different. To make it less harsh you can always rub it in-between your hands for a minute first and then apply the product from your hands. I just found that I didn’t get as much product onto my face while doing this so I preferred to rub a little on each section of my face before massaging it in.
Moving on from skincare now, I was also sent this lovely little bottle of Shampoo, Shower Gel & Face Wash in the scent Sweet Cherry. Now let me tell you, I absolute adore this! I had a little 60ml bottle and it lasted me about 6 showers using it as a shampoo and shower gel which is pretty impressive I think. It smells absolutely divine like a little cherry bakewell and I am obsessed with the scent it’s just gorgeous! Not only that but it left my hair soooo soft and healthy and I was so sad when it ran out. I’m definitely going to be buying more of these and I want to try out some of the other scents too! Literally a little bottle of heaven and it has nothing in it which is bad for your hair like a lot of other products on the market so I know it can’t harm my hair in any way and only do good!
Next up is this gorgeous smelling Orange & Aloe Moisturising Body Butter. This not only contains Aloe Vera Juice and Natural Sweet Orange Essentials Oils but also Scottish Ola Oil, Vitamin E and Shea Butter. You can only imagine what this smells like right? An orange zesty tub of goodness! But it also leaves your skin silky smooth and soft of course! I also received this little bottle of Nourish Natural Bath & Moisture Oil which you can add a few drops to your bath or use on wet skin in the shower. This has Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang in to calm, soothe and nourish your skin. It left my body feeling really smooth when I used it in my bath and if you use the body butter when you’re out and dry it is honestly silky smooth heaven!
On to little bath treats now, just look at that giant bath bomb! This is the Jasmine Dreams Giant Bath Bomb which is almost double the size of the regular bath bombs but still only £4 to buy. This bath bomb has Apricot Kernel Oil & Dead Sea Salt to re-balance and moisturise the skin. As it dissolves it also leaves little tiny flower petals scattered across your bath which looks really lovely and it’s so calming I really enjoyed my pretty bath. I also got this Natural Sugar Scrub, I can’t remember the exact scent but I know it smells soooo good! I like to run this under running water for a minute or so which softens it a little first and creates a nice residue making it easier to rub onto your skin without being too harsh and it leaves the really silky residue behind adding to the softness of your skin! Last of all I got 2 lots of different bath salts, the Aromatherapy Bath Soak which left my bath water a beautiful blue and was so calming and I also got the Dead Sea Bath Salts which were nice but I definitely preferred the Aromatherapy ones as I’m a sucker for a colourful bath!
And that’s everything! This turned out to be a super long post but I received so many goodies which I’m so grateful for and I have honestly loved trying them and still have some bits left! All of these products smell amazing and feel so good on your skin. I love using products and knowing that everything in there is all natural and can only do good things to my skin on my face and body as well as in my hair! My favourite out of everything has to be the Mask & Cleanser Duo, Natural Repair Oil and the Sweet Cherry Shower Gel, Shampoo & Face Wash! Another great thing about this brand is how affordable everything is which is always such a bonus!
So I hope you managed to get all the way to the end and enjoyed reading!
