When you travel a lot, you tend to stock up on deluxe and travel-sized items. Some of the handiest are pre-moistened wipes- they pack easily and are really convenient. Some of the best I have found were the La Fresh wipes I got from Birchbox a while back. So, when La Fresh sent me a package of their products to try out, I was absolutely delighted!
Amanda, from La Fresh, was super awesome and sent me a pack of Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes, Instant Cooling Body Soother wipes, Good Times Facial Treatment Masks, a deluxe trio of the Be Good Beauty Regimen, and her favorite, Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover wipes.
Be Good Beauty Regimen
The La Fresh Be Good trio includes Good Start Face Serum, Good Day Day Moisturizer, and Good Day Night Cream. The serum contains some great ingredients, such as aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and grape seed along with other botanical extracts.
The serum, applied in the morning and at night after cleansing and toning, is very light, easy to spread, and fast absorbing. It has a fresh, barely discernible scent that dissipates quickly. In the summer, this serum will most likely be hydrating enough for me that I would not need a separate moisturizer, so that’s always a plus!
The Good Day Day Moisturizer contains aloe leaf juice, peptides, various botanical extracts, and caffeine- so this is awesome at getting rid of puffiness and helping with a firmer appearance. Those of us with severe allergies and puffy eyes take serious joy in this type of product! It absorbs quickly, and does not leave my oily/combination skin greasy.
The Good Day Night Cream, again, has aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and some great antioxidants and botanicals. This is a bit thicker than the day moisturizer, but still not greasy or overly heavy. After a day of using this regimen, I woke up the next morning with super soft skin!
The formulas spread easily enough that this $6.99 trial size trio should last 4-5 days, possibly even a week if you stick with just your face.
Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes
Makeup removing and cleansing wipes are an absolute MUST for anyone. While you should actually wash your face thoroughly each night, that’s realistically not always going to happen. When you’re tired, or just plain lazy, wipes are a saving grace.
La Fresh Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes don’t just remove your makeup, but they also contain aloe leaf and other extracts to nourish and soothe your skin. So, not only are you taking off the icky stuff, but you’re adding some good stuff!
Personally, I always wash my face at night, but I hoard wipes for when I go to the gym. I hate working out or exercising with makeup on, I can almost feel my pores clogging…ewww… So, right before I went for a jog, I used one of these wipes. A single wipe did a superb job of getting my makeup off, without stripping my skin. It even got my eye makeup off, except for my stubborn mascara. But, I had used Urban Decay Primer Potion, so I was thoroughly impressed that it got my shadow off!
La Fresh Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes start at $2.49 for 8 wipes.
Instant Cooling Body Soother
La Fresh Instant Cooling Body Soother wipes contain extracts such as peppermint and rosemary that create a calming sensation. These wipes can be used almost anywhere- your temples, neck, shoulders, legs, or any area that feels tense or fatigued.
After working out and jogging, I was hot, stinky, and sweaty, as always…lol. So, I used a wipe on my legs, concentrating on my quads, as well as my neck and shoulders. While my quads still ached, I did feel more relaxed and refreshed. When Jerry got home, his neck hurt, so he used one, too, and said he would definitely use them again. Another great addition to my gym bag!
La Fresh Instant Cooling Body Soother wipes retail for $10.99 for 18 wipes.
Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover
Omg, it’s easy to see why these are one of Amanda’s favorite products! Nail polish remover stinks, especially acetone-free remover. No clue why, but almost every acetone-free remover I’ve had smells worse than acetone remover. Not these! The La Fresh Nail Polish Remover wipes not only don’t stink, but they actually smell good. Even Jerry commented on how something smelled like oranges!
So, how well do they work? Well, I decided to try one out on my toenails. I had several layers of polish on them, and it’s always a chore. Especially because I tend to just add more polish when it chips, then I end up with umpteen layers caked on. The packet says one pad will work on all ten nails. And… it did! One pad really did remove the polish from all ten of my toenails! It also conditioned my nails and cuticles- so this is one of those products I would definitely want to hoard!
La Fresh Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover wipes retail for $5.99 for ten wipes.
Good Times. Facial Treatment Mask
Have I told you how much I love sheet masks? If you’ve been following this blog, you know I absolutely LOVE them, almost as much as wine. (Did somebody say “wine?”) Anywho, the La Fresh Good Times cotton mask is saturated with a serum consisting of hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B5, peptides, and botanicals to leave your face renewed, rejuvenated, and fabulous!
I left the mask on for about 20 minutes, then massaged the excess serum into my skin. Not only was my face softer, but all the hydration really made my skin glow! I think I’m going to stick one in the fridge to use after my next run- I’ll pop on the mask, then use a body wipe, and I’ll be feeling great!
La Fresh Good Times. Facial Treatment Masks retail for $20.00 for a pack of five.
Overall, I was very happy with the La Fresh products I tried. I was planning on stashing them in my gym bag, but I don’t know if they’ll make it that far before I use them all up! (P.S. For all you animal lovers, they even make products for your furry friend, too!) J
