5-Minute At Home Facial That Actually Works
we’ve all grown accustomed to the fact that most types of skincare products only provide visible results after a few uses, which often range from about a week to a couple of months. i myself allow several days of usage before passing judgement on a new product; it’s only fair, after all. but then there are times when a skincare brand makes a distinctly bold claim–instantly better skin in just 5 minutes, for example–and i am immediately skeptical… albeit curious and excited as well.
such is the claim of FRESH, a brand renowned for its pioneering use of natural ingredients and techniques, inspired by centuries-old beauty rituals from around the world. their new Youth Preserve Rescue Mask from their famed lotus line promises immediate, radiant results after first use, combating dullness, unevenness, and congestion.
the seaweed radiance facial is powered by lotus seeds and a blend of kombu seaweed flakes and red algae that gently buff and refine the skin, maintaining its youthful and supple appearance. once or twice a week, i apply this mask on cleansed skin, wait 5 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water in slow, buffing motions. this does function like a physical exfoliant, so a gentle touch is key. it is non-abrasive though and smells delightfully like fresh cucumbers.
every time i use it i am amazed at what i see: noticeably smoother skin that just glows. i also feel like i don’t have to use it too often because the effects actually last, so even days later, my skin is still visibly supple and radiant and not as clogged as before.
another new addition to my skincare routine is the iconic Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. this rich, cushiony moisturizer is formulated with a proprietary Super 7 Complex that boosts hydration for up to 24 hours, minimizes early signs of aging, and provides protective properties from daily stressors like pollution and harmful sunrays.
i have used this cream every night for over 2 weeks now and i cannot get over how much it has changed my skin. my complexion is significantly smoother and more even, with a healthy radiance that never seems to go away. this is also the first moisturizer i’ve consistently used every day that has not broken me out, which is a feat in itself. i think this face cream will work for anyone, especially if you have dry, dull, or imbalanced skin.
even with the high price tag i feel like these products from fresh are worth it, not only because of their amazing ingredients, but also because they are generously sized and a little product goes a long way. these will surely last me a while and i’m excited to see what else they can do for my skin.
with mother’s day coming up, i feel like these would also make for great gifts! imagine what fun girl-time bonding you can have with your mom, doing 5-minute facials and having matchy glowy skin after. 10/10 would recommend.
