Nice packaging, Pretty good product. The smell though... cucumbers? I wish they would stop scenting everything with cucumbers. I will say before I bought this I applied it on my hand and hated the smell. Though five minutes later the cucumber smell was gone.
I too am very surprised at the low reviews of this moisturizer. On Sephora.Com it has 4.5 stars out of 5 - that is where I purchased it. What I like is that it's formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. I also like that the product is in a glass jar. I use this as my daily moisturizer (at night I've been using something else) and find it absorbs well and my BB cream over this works nicely. The smell doesn't bother me at all, very fresh smell - what's to hate about cucumbers. I am 51 and my skin is pretty dry, especially in the winter and this moisturizer has not disappointed me so far - happy with results.
Good product overall. Pros: gentle, didn't cause any sensitivity, decent moisturizing, fresh smell (cucumbers). Cons: not enough for very cold months, open jar packaging, no effect on fine lines (although to be fair, I still haven't found a cream that actually does anything for these). I will keep buying.
This is a lovely moisturizer and I have tried many! I'm so shocked by the low reviews to be totally truthful! I live in Alberta Canada, during the winter it drops down to -40+ with wind chill frequently. Alberta is also considered a desert due to our lack of precipitation. Dry skin in the winter has plagued me almost all my life and I haven't had a dry patch yet with this face cream!!
Typically I am very oily, however the winter ravages every bodies skin. It typically looks dull and lifeless, also due to the lack of sun. The fact I get compliments on my skin in the dead of winter is shocking to me and I can accredit it to my skin care. The moisturizer is so light I use it morning and evening. It smells exactly like cucumbers and feels so soothing on, like you are giving your skin a drink of water. The texture is nice and light and absorbs quickly. I use it after I shower in the morning, and apply makeup over it. It has never once aggravated my cystic acne prone skin either which is hugggeee, and no black heads! I personally don't mind the glass jar, I've dropped it a few times and it hasn't even cracked (whoops). I feel it might be too heavy for the day in spring / summer. But when my skin needs the extra moisture, and perhaps at night from now on I will always reach for this!
I'm a product junkie, and I have a particular soft spot for Fresh. I have used their lotus eye gel for years and find it's the ONLY eye cream that actually does anything to help my tired, puffy eyes. When I became pregnant I was looking for a safe moisturizer that wouldn't break me out, as my skin had become a bit more sensitive, acne prone, and very dry. I was recommended this cream and figured it would go great with my eye gel. It's cucumber scented - smells exactly like their soy face wash, actually! Overall, I think it's a good product. My skin never feels tight when I wear it - it's moisturized without being greasy, which is hard to accomplish. It hasn't broken me out at all. Some of my lines have softened slightly, and my skin just looks uniform. I don't notice any massive change in my skin, but my skin was decent to begin with - just dry. Overall, I'm pleased with this cream and I feel like I'm doing something good for myself when I apply it. In general, I think fresh products are great (albeit expensive).
I absolutely love this moisturizer for day time. It is light weight enough to wear under my foundation and it doen't make it slide off. It's not super moisturizing, so for night I use the Creme Ancienne. I've tried a ton of high end and low end products and this line really seems to agree with my sensitive red skin. The only thing I would change would be the packaging I don't like to be continuously dipping my fingers in and out of a jar I would rather have an air tight jar with a pump or a tube.
I use this only as a day moisturizer, it is light and to me doesn't have a bad smell.. Nothing short of surgery is going to remove the fine lines and wrinkles of anyone! I'm hopeful to find products to continue to let me have nice skin (which I do have).. The price is comparable to other high end products.. It does a nice job for a day moisturizer and I will buy again..
I actually kinda liked this moisturizer. I found it was light and it had a cucumber scent in it that I found pleasant. I used this during the summer months and ran out in August it was just perfect for summer! I was very happy with my skin because I didn't get any reactions either...oh and for the reviewer who says she got cysts girl as an esthetician myself I can tell you that's not from products that's your diet and your hormones causing you to break out oh and if you have dry skin you body produces oil to try to lubricate its self and depending in the density of the oil your body is producing mixing with bacteria from all those samples you get it's a perfecting breeding ground for acne causing bacteria! Think about it... Overall this product is awesome!
I'm surprised at the low reviews! This product is my HG night cream. I've switched many, many times in hopes to find something cheaper. But this stuff is the only thing that has kept my skin feeling plump and moisturized. I have terrible, problem skin, and without the cream my pores feel larger, my skin is greasier, and my jowls seem less lifted. The tingling/burning sensation is definitely weird, so I understand why sensitive skin users might be scared off. But this lotus youth preserve cream is priced so wonderfully for a Fresh product and really delivers!
I got a sample of this cream and tried it out over the course of one week. I cannot attest to its long term benefits, but I feel comfortable assessing my experience. I like the scent of the lotion- it is very unique. I do not know what to compare it to in terms of smell; it smells very natural. It is also moisturizing without feeling greasy. It made my skin feel soft and supple without irritating it. I think the biggest drawback is the price. I own plenty of high-end face creams already so I cannot truly justify the splurge. Regardless, I was pleased with the result of this face cream.
