Review: 5 steps to fresh skin with Skinfrésh

April 1, 2022

Skinfrésh came at the perfect time in my skincare routine as I was actively seeking a way to turn my bentonite clay into a cleanser. Thankfully, I didn’t have to go any further with that mission as soon as it landed on my lap.

An Organic, cruelty-free face and body care range, Skinfrésh offers plant-based products that don’t contain harmful chemicals, artificial fragrances and colourants. Their focus is purely on skincare – of all shades and ages. 

The products I received from them were the:

  • Detoxing Clay Cleanser
  • Luminous Citrus Scrub
  • Balancing Facial Mist
  • Morning Face Cream
  • Brightening Face Oil

Detoxing Clay Cleanser

The Detoxing Clay Cleanser with Bentonite Clay & Lemongrass is undoubtedly the star of this show. The bentonite clay acts as a magnet for impurities, relieving problematic skin of oiliness. Coupled with the lemongrass – which adds a fresh scent to the cleanser – it further detoxifies the skin. It is a must for anyone trying to clear up pesky pimples and blackheads.

Being heavily ridden with acne before starting this treatment, I see a significant improvement. My acne is gradually subsiding and outbreaks are becoming few and far apart. One of the best things about the Skinfrésh Detoxing Clay Cleanser with Bentonite Clay & Lemongrass is that it doubles as a mask. Without hesitation, before I jump into the shower, I like to wet my face and smear the clay on my skin. After giving it time to settle and dry, I wash it off with only my hands and water.

Let me tell you, after that, my face feels soft to the touch. I knew there was logic in using bentonite clay as a cleanser and Skinfrésh just reinforced that. Honestly, I don’t think I’ll be going back to washing my face with soap.

Luminous Citrus Scrub Balancing

The Luminous Citrus Scrub is a brightening exfoliant. It has grapeseed and citrus oils in addition to apricot kernels. These apricot kernels provide the tiny exfoliating particles that scrub the dead skin off. While it does this, the grapeseed oil conditions your skin, and the citrus oils brighten up your glow.

Feel free to use the scrub on your face and body after a thorough clean. One of the ways I used the scrub was by mixing it with the Detoxing Clay Cleanser. My skin found the apricot kernels to be far to harsh on its surface. They are a little too big, rough and don’t dissolve. The abrasiveness of the kernels is countered by the grapeseed oil as it reduces inflammation. Once I rinse the scrub off, I immediately feel how smooth my skin is.

Because of the roughness of the scrub, I would recommend using it once a week. It could easily stress your skin and nobody needs that.

Balancing Facial Mist 

The Balancing Facial Mist is set to refine, tone and hydrate your skin. I enjoy using the facial mist as a skin refresher. I spray it on my face, rub it on my skin and then proceed with the rest of my skincare routine.

Honestly, this is such a vibe. Those who suffer from dry, itchy skin or just need to cool down can find relief with it. To activate it, all you have to do is shake it up and spray accordingly.

The Witch hazel in the toner acts as an astringent with anti-inflammatory properties. It decreases skin irritation and protects your skin as it is rich in antioxidants and vitamins.

Morning Face Cream with Rice Bran Oil

Moisturising and cooling to the first touch are what you can expect from the morning face cream from Skinfrésh. After misting my face and applying my sunscreen lotion, I apply the morning face cream and rub it into my skin until absorbed.

It feels pleasant on my skin and leaves it feeling refreshed. The best part is that it stays that way throughout the whole day. Not once have I experienced my face drying out.

The rice bran oil boosts the health of your skin. Other oils that are contained in the cream include:

  • Vitamin E
  • Linoleic-rich
  • Jojoba

In addition to the cocoa and shea butter, the morning face cream also:

  • Inhibits skin pigmentation
  • Reduces dark spots
  • Softens and smooths skin
  • Reduces the appearance and breakout of acne

Just to mention a few.

Brightening Face Oil

Seal off your routine with this lightweight face oil. For the first time, in a long, I have found an oil that doesn’t irritate my eyes. This means I can use it to further moisturise the sensitive skin under my eyes. 

Take it up a notch and use it as a skin cleanser. Trust me – you will love it! It left my skin soft and supple. Another great way to use it is to mix it with the Luminous Citrus Scrub with the Bright Face Oil. Not only will it sweep the dead skin off your face, but it will further clean your face while infusing the moisture you need.

Protip: After cleansing with the Detoxing Clay Cleanser with Bentonite Clay & Lemongrass, mix the Luminous Citrus Scrub with the Bright Face Oil

Skinfrésh prioritises both your skin and the environment. This is evident in how they make their products and don’t skimp quality. Their products do, however, have a medicinal smell to them but that can easily be attributed to their healing properties. Other than that, give a minimum of 2 – 3 weeks to see results.
