I have been SO excited to write this review for FRÉ Skincare for a MONTH now.
FRÉ Skincare reached out to me to try their 123Fre Set as they noticed I love being active and being outside on these hot summer days. But I wanted to give their product a full 30 days to REALLY know the effects it would have on my red proned skin.
My husband (who has VERY sensitive and acne prone skin) tried it too! And boy, have we been outside sweating and testing this product to the MAX.
From running around downtown Williamsburg, to daily outdoor workouts, and digging an entire trench through our yard to install a French drain. You could say we were well-rounded with our activities!
WHY TRY FRÉ SKINCARE?
FRÉ Skincare is all about providing a one of a kind skin care product that is MEANT for sweat. It combats exercise and sweat induced skin damage: breakouts, dehydration and the signs of aging. ALL things I NEED.
Uses natural oils from the Argan plant. The oil’s high proportion of potent antioxidants and fatty acids make it perfect for treating dry hair and scaly skin. FRÉ did their homework and discovered that beyond the traditional uses of Argan oil they created a formula known as Argania Active Complex © out of the kernel and leaf of the Argan tree.
And if that isn’t amazing enough, they are a vegan company, they DO NOT test their products on animals, and for every set you purchase they plant an Argan tree in Morocco.
And my friends at FRÉ are giving my readers a discount for 25% your order!

STAYING ACTIVE WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT SKIN OR SUN DAMAGE
I honestly didn’t use any skincare products on my skin before heading out for a sweaty workout in the garage or outside. Other than a quick face wash, I was out the door. After a shower I would then do my usual skincare ritual.
When trying my FRÉ123 Set my routine went like this:
Splash water on my face and used Purify Me: a hydrating facial cleanser. (This was a WOW factor product for me.) It smelled SO good and had exfoliating jojoba beads which provide double hydration and pH balance restoration. YES PLEASE.
I then used the REVIVE ME: a deep replenishing serum. Made more active skin that frequently sweats and exercises. It basically gives your skin all that nourishment it needs and a dose of collagen for extra restoration!
Lastly, I used their PROTECT ME. It’s a facial moisturizer that is also SPF 30. I was hesitant to try this as I associate sunscreen as being heavy and the moment I start sweating it stings and gets into my eyes. I was VERY surprised that this wasn’t the case. It was light in texture, didn’t have that annoying “sunscreen smell”, and was actually quickly absorbed into my skin. Usually it feels like I'm spending FOREVER trying to blend sunscreen into my face.
All of the above took me less than 5 minutes and I was out the door.
I truly loved this set. My skin had ZERO irritation or redness after using this product for 30 days and with my fair Irish skin, I didn’t burn after being out in the sun most weekends with PROTECT ME. So you can definitely say it lived up to its name ;). I would say that this set is for everyone. You don’t need to work out to be active and enjoy the benefits of this set. Walking the dog, gardening, biking are all ways to go outside and be active this summer.
And truth be told, I have only JUST started a real “grown-up” skin care routine. I know, I’m 29 now and I should have had one. I only washed my face and applied moisturizer. Now I include the FRÉ123 set plus other natural skincare products to promote overall skincare health and minimize aging!
Even though I am primarily a food blogger, I genuinely feel that what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body. And with the stress of everyday life PLUS getting a workout in can take a toll on your skin. This is why I love products that are all natural like FRÉ and why I think it’s necessary to share here on my blog.
I will be continuing to use this product as part of my healthy skincare ritual. As I have come to learn after a 30 day trial that it is the best skincare products for an active lifestyle I have come across thus far.
"FRÉ proved to be a great compliment to extensive, high endurance activity. Specifically the moisturizing sunscreen PROTECT ME kept my sensitive skin protected and calmed during hours of outdoor activity with NO breakouts afterwards!"
