Fresh is one of those brands that never lets me down, I genuinely love every single product I’ve ever tried from them! In my Skincare Routine Video, I mentioned I’ve been using the Fresh Beauty Umbrian Clay Exfoliant and Oil-Free Face Lotion. I thought I’d go into a bit more detail here on the blog!
The clay and olive seed powder give the product it’s gritty texture, you just need a small amount of product to get the face and neck exfoliated to perfection. Because I’m prone to redness, I typically stray from physical exfoliants. However, I find this one is super soothing (tysm chamomile oil and lavender water) and doesn’t leave my skin red or irritated.
After I give myself a scrub, I like to let it sit on my skin for a few minutes like a mask. The fuller’s earth and kaolin clay are amazing for drawing out impurities and excess sebum (oil). So it’s basically a 2-in-1! The Fresh Umbrian Clay Face Exfoliant is available at Sephora and Nordstrom.
My skin always feels so cool and soothed because of the cucumber in the formula, it also really helps with redness. The Umbrian Clay (which is actually harvested from Umbria in Italy, FYI) is fab for drawing out toxins, balancing oil secretions, and gets the skin at it’s optimal PH.
It’s really light and absorbs right away, it doesn’t leave a greasy residue or film. I’ve noticed a lot of “oil free” moisturizers often leave a residue, which is really just not I’m going for. Another thing I’ve noticed about products for oily/acneic skin is that they can be really harsh. But the Umbrian Clay Oil-Free Lotion is super gentle and still balances out the oil. The Fresh Umbrian Clay Oil-Free Lotion is available at Sephora and Nordstrom.
I’d highly suggest these for those with oily/combination skin, especially if you’re on the sensitive side as well!
