Okay guys, so over the past 2 weeks I’ve started a new skin care routine. Fré reached out to me asking me to try their skincare products. In return for their skin set they asked for my 100 percent HONEST review. I made a promise to myself when I started on this journey that I would only work with companies whose mission I approved of and that I believed the community I have built would enjoy. So with that being said I will tell you some of the KEY FACTORS in choosing to try out this skin care line.
Factor 1: Fré is a VEGAN & CRUELTY FREE skin care line. What does this mean? It means that the products are not only all vegan but they do not test their products on animals. While I am not vegan I am all for clean products and I am a HUGE animal lover.
Factor 2: Fré actually plants an argan tree for every single set that is sold. They do this because the Argan forest is being threatened and by replanting they are helping to support women who are harvest Argan Oil down in Morocco. LIKE WOW. I’m all for empowering other women. Those two alone were enough to say yes.
Factor 3: It is specifically designed to protect your skin from sweat damage and while I am no longer super active in the fitness community I am still silently doing my thang and I could use some skin care. Plus, I know my friends in the fitness community could too.
What do I mean specifically designed to protect your skin from sweat? The formula of these three products is designed to build up your skins strength and resistance to sweat. Sweat has an effect on our signs of aging and can lead to skin damage so if you are working out often you are more prone to these skin damages. Obviously, sweat alone isn’t the sole cause but when paired with environmental factors it really can cause harm to your skin.
SO with that being said lets launch into this review of this 3 step process!
Step 1: Protect Me
Protect me is probably, MY FAVORITE product. This is a product you use before you go to the gym! It is a moisturizer so you rub it into your face until its dry with no need to wash it off. It smells ABSOLUTELY amazing and I mean it when I say a little goes a long way. The benefits of this product include:
- It protects your skin from damaging UVA, UVB, & IRA rays.
- It hydrates your skin
- Helps to build up the skins natural barrier
- Promotes a natural glow
Let me tell you, THAT LAST ONE IS NO JOKE. There is an INSTANT glow when using this product. I am super self-conscious of how my skin looks at times and therefore I wear some face makeup to the gym. Since using this product I only put mascara on when going to the gym since it leaves such a glow on my face. On top of that it leaves my skin feeling super soft!
Step 2: Purify Me
So, purify me is the second step in this three step process. It is a hydrating facial cleanser that you use after the gym (and even on days you don’t go to the gym). You wanna make sure your skin is a little damp when you put it on because because you do not rub it into your skin and leave it there. You apply it around your skin gently for about a minute and then you rinse it off. So the benefits of this product are:
- It helps get the PH balance of your skin back to what it SHOULD BE
- It removes the toxins out of your pores as well as unclogging them
- It soothes the redness your skin may have
- It also works to hydrate the skin
You know that feeling you get when you take your make up off and you are like oh my god my skin can finally breathe? Well using this is like that EVERYTIME even on a bare face. It is amazing!
Step 3: Revive Me
Finally, we have the REVIVE me, which is a deep replenishing serum. Okay, so the revive me you put on directly after the purify me and like the protect me you just rub it into your face and go. The benefits of this product include:
- REGENERATES COLLEGEN (thats HUGE) and helps with your skine elasticity (stretching your skin can cause wrinkles)
- Helps to reduce said wrinkles
- Helps to fight against aging
- Helps to make your skin more firm
- Helps to restore your skin of the vitamins and minerals it has lost
With this product the biggest thing I have noticed is skin firmness after using it! I think that paired with the other two it is a great product.

My honest review:
(Please excuse this huge light shining at my face but IN LOVE also I TOTALLY meant concealer)
To be pretty honest before Fré I truly didn’t have a skin regimen I stuck to but I am happy to see that since implementing it I have seen over all changes in my skin. For starters, my biggest problem area is my forehead. I don’t get super bad acne on it but I do get noticble tiny little bumps all over. Since using this those bumps have pretty much disappeared, which has also reduced the amount of makeup I wear to the gym or just going out in public in general. In all honesty, if I am going to be going to the gym or running around doing errands the protect me has pretty much replaced my face makeup. It is such a pain to put face makeup on for just doing little activities. So not only am I protecting my skin while I am being active but that natural glow really has me feeling confident in myself. I have also noticed that even when I haven’t used the protect me or the revive me (which is also meant to promote a glow) the glow of my skin has naturally been boosted from using the products! Overall, I truly love the changes I have seen in my skin from making this my skin care routine.
