Happy summer friends! Dallas got hot quick, but despite the heat, I’m absolutely taking advantage of all this sunshine. As part of my work life, I’m constantly outside attending or hosting different fitness events and that means, I’m exposing my skin to the sun and
sweating my ass off glistening. So when Fre Skincare reached out with a skincare line made just for active women, I was excited to try something new and see what made it a product for women who sweat.
After doing some research, Fre Skincare’s formula is designed to help women who engage in high intensity workouts outside from pre-mature aging and sun damage. Think running, bootcamps, outdoor yoga, surfing, etc. This quote from their site stuck out to me: “According to the American Academy of Dermatology, athletes are at an increased risk of skin cancer due to the combination of sweat that increases the photosensitivity of skin and over-exposure to the sun”. So the same way we tan faster when we are in the pool, I believe that same concept applies to our skin when we’re sweating in the sun.
I personally do not sweat a ton, but I do care a lot about my skin and am diligent about my skincare routine. I always wear SPF before I leave the house and I always wash my face before bed and never sleep in my make up. NEVER. (Fun fact: sleeping in your make up is the equivalent of not washing your face for like a week. That’s how clogged it starts to get). I have pretty normal skin and didn’t experience a lot of acne or blemishes growing up. During the summer, it will get a wee bit more oily in my t-zone and during the winter, a bit dryer. All normal things. My skin is also slightly sensitive and will react to hasher chemicals.
While Fre Skincare is designed for sweat, it’s also perfect for a daily morning routine because it does contain SPF30, is water resistant, and is very hydrating. Here are my initial thoughts on the product and how it worked on my skin:
- A little goes a long way. I didn’t need a lot of product to cleanse or moisturize my face
- Smells incredible. It’s a nice clean and citrus scent that I love using in the morning
- Skin did not get greasy later in the day nor felt heavy
- Felt great even after I would apply make up on before heading out for the day
- Felt that it help prevent sweating off my make up and actually like it as a base – spent 10 hours outside hosting a yoga festival and it held up great
Their product is also cruelty free, vegan, and for every set you buy, Fre Skincare plants an Argan Tree. How freaking cool is that? I love companies that incorporate some sort of give back program. I tried the product line for a few weeks and noticed that my skin does feel more hydrated and soft. The 3-step process is simple and straightforward. My skin didn’t react negatively and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed giving them a try and learning more about the needs for women who sweat.
You can learn more about their active skincare line here. I had a ton of questions about what it meant to have a line made just for active women and I’m sure you do too. I was also pleasantly surprised with their pricing. It’s $115 for all 3 products which I personally think is reasonable considering I’ve dropped anywhere from $150-$200 for my skincare. Yes…I’m bougie when it comes to skincare. Gotta stay looking young. You can also take advantage of my promo code DEEPFRIED25 for 25% off!
