Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream

Life can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster, so it’s no wonder that we laugh, frown, look confused, and express surprise more times than we can count on any given day. While there’s nothing wrong with letting our feelings show, we’re not so crazy about the expression lines (ahem…wrinkles) that develop as a result. This brand-new moisturizer from Fresh is made with a proprietary blend of seven actives to prevent and treat all the signs of skin aging while keeping skin moisturized day and night.

Just OK

I didn't find this cream to be any better than a drugstore product. Although there is nothing bad about the product there is also nothing to warrant the price.

it was OK
Sampled

The texture is on the thicker side, which is OK for winter but I wouldn't want to use this in the summer. I liked the smell, sort of a very light flowery/plant type of smell. Overall it was OK but I definitely won't be buying it - too expensive and too thick for everyday use.

Smelly
Sampled

I didn't really like the smell and since it is on your face...I smelled it for hours. The consistency was nice though.

Not enough
Sampled

I received two small samples of this product and used it for three days. I felt it was not enough of the sample to get a feel of what it had to offer. The smell was not great, but it did moisturize my face and worked great for the few days as a night cream.

Not feeling fresh with this face lotion...
Sampled

I really wanted to like this face lotion... but it fell flat for me. The cucumber scent was overpowering and, quite frankly, weird. My boyfriend could smell it as well when he was close to me, and he thought it was unpleasant. Also, the lotion was too heavy for my combination skin and I started breaking out within a few days of using it (which hasn't happened to me in months). I will stick to the face lotion I normally use.

I was very excited to have this in my birchbox sample, as I've never tried Fresh products and always wanted/meant to. The texture of the moisturizer was fantastic, but the cucumber smell was so off putting that I could barely stand to use it. I do not mind cucumber scents but this was kinda like a rotting cucumber. I think this product could be phenomenal if it had a more neutral odor.

When I first applied Fresh Lotus Face Cream, my face felt instantly warm, I thought I was having an allergic reaction. After awhile, that went away, no reaction, visible or otherwise, aside from the initial warming sensation. The quality seemed very nice, but I don't think I will buying. That said, I really don't know if Fresh Lotus Face Cream is supposed to have this "warming sensation," but I wasn't a fan. Without this, I would have like the product.

Ouch

Stung sensitive skin. If that's not an issue for you, the texture feels really nice, but I didn't notice any other reasons why this is product is special.

Not for Everyone
Sampled

I love trying new things from my Birchbox each month, but this lotion is not for me. I have combination skin that is rather sensitive. I've used this lotion for a few nights in a row and my skin has been very red in the morning when I wake up. This might be a great lotion for most, but I recommend trying a sample before purchasing the full bottle.

Quite effective as a moisturizer, but smelled too much like my produce drawer (strong cucumber scent), which put me off.
