I am knee deep in a skincare routine right now (that I’ll be telling you about later this week!) but I couldn’t resist sharing some holiday gift sets with you from a brand I’ve been wanting to try. I wrote about their Fragrance Journey last week, and this week I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday gift sets with you! I’ve dabbled in a few of the products and the others I will be telling you more about in the new year when I’ve had a chance to test them more extensively.

First, I want to tell you about the Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil. This oil makes an appearance in several of Fresh’s gift sets and is available on its own as a darling little ornament. The blend of pure oils here is seaberry (also known as seabuckthorn), cranberry seed, camellia seed, grapeseed, and sweet almond oils. The oil is slightly thick but still maintains a lightweight and fast absorbing feel on the skin.
Skincare Affair contains five amazing products from Fresh Beauty. If you are totally new to the brand I would start here. There are some really awesome ingredients found in these products- black tea, soy, seaberry oil, rosewater, and sugar.
The Soy Face Cleanser is an excellent cleanser that I can’t recommend enough. I actually own a few bottles of this right now because I bought some backups during the VIB sale. It’s really that good. It’s super gentle, has a light scent and gets all my makeup off. It also works great with the Foreo Luna. In this kit, you’re also getting the Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil that I just mentioned above, the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask, the Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream, and the Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy.
We’ve been having some real doozies for nights around here lately between sleep training two little ones, one of which is teething, and the weeks leading up to the holidays just being insanely busy for us. I’m trying to take the best care of my skin possible, and the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask is truly rocking my world right now. Kombucha, a drink made with black tea ferment, is known to boost energy levels, and taste absolutely terrible, in my opinion. I’ve drank it for health reasons before and I didn’t find the drink to be worth choking down for the benefits, however, I’ll totally throw some black tea on my face for skincare benefits. The softening, smoothing, and overall amazing texture my face is after using this is well worth it. After using once, my skin was moisturized and looked and felt amazing for the rest of the day!
My favorite find from this gift set was actually the Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream. I am super picky about my eye cream and I want ALL the benefits. No more dark circles, lots of moisture, it has to absorb quickly, go a long way because the stuff I like is expensive, moisturize, and look great under makeup but also work at night time. WOW does this stuff ever deliver on all accounts. I actually couldn’t even believe how much I fell in love with this stuff. It does everything I could want and more. I would compare it to Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream that retails at $18 more for the same amount that comes in this. I am sure I will end up reviewing this on its own at some point in the near future so keep your eyes peeled in the new year.
Last but not least, Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy is amazing and I’ve had many of these mini Fresh beauty lippies around over the years. If you haven’t tried it you must. This is definitely a worthy purchase at $70 because you get to try a little bit of everything. If you’ve never tried the brand, this would be a perfect way to start.
Another skincare set that really captured my attention from Fresh was the Black Tea Skincare Favorites. Here you are getting three skincare goodies fro their Black Tea line as well as a beautiful glass vanity dish. I haven’t had a chance to test these in full but I will give you the scoop below.
Black Tea Age-Delay Cream is an advanced face cream proven to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and firm, smooth, and retexturize skin. The 1.6 oz. full size of this retails at $95 so I think getting to try the entire kit at about that price is a steal of a deal. I know for me personally it is hard to commit to such a high price tag for a beauty product, so if this product alone has ever crossed your radar it might be worth picking this set up.
Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate is an advanced eye treatment that diminishes and prevents signs of aging while moisturizing and visibly firming the eye area. I haven’t tried this yet but if it’s anything like the Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream I know it will be amazing.
The Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask is the last skincare related item in the kit. I don’t always wear an overnight mask because they can be heavy but in the dead of winter when my skin is super dry they can be just what the doctor ordered. I am so excited to try this!
You also get this gorgeous little vanity tray with your purchase. I don’t know what you think about the little decorative trays, but I can’t get enough of them. I love the design on this one and can’t wait to find a place for it in my house!
So that wraps up my coverage of Fresh Beauty’s holiday gifting sets! I am super excited to dig deeper into this brand in the future and tell you how some of these products have been working for me in the new year.
