As an avid runner, my skin faces daily challenges, from exposure to the elements to copious amounts of sweat. Post-run, wiping my salt-encrusted face feels like a makeshift exfoliation routine – it’s not the most pleasant experience!

As a busy woman, I value a straightforward skincare regimen that’s both quick and effective. Recently, I underwent laser skin rejuvenation to manage the redness caused by my mild rosacea, and I highly recommend it for those facing similar issues.

After investing time and money into achieving healthy skin, I’m cautious about trying new products. We all know that when our skin looks its best, we feel our best!

So, when I was given the opportunity to test the FRÉ Skincare collection, I hesitated at first. Their three-step skincare routine is tailored for active women like me. Skincare is personal, and what works for one may not work for another, so I decided to give it a try.

About FRÉ Skincare:

FRÉ Skincare is a vegan brand designed for active women, featuring antioxidants and the Argania active complex to protect your skin during and after workouts. The 123 Fré Set includes the Purify Me Cleanser, Revive Me Serum, and Protect Me Defense Moisturiser, which also doubles as an SPF. It promotes clear complexions, a healthy glow, and fights against breakouts, dehydration, and the signs of ageing.

FRÉ Skincare is:

  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Won’t clog pores
  • Suitable for all skin types

Step 1: Protect me

The Protect Me moisturiser boasts SPF30, making it ideal for pre-run application. On non-workout days, it can be used as a regular moisturiser, shielding your skin from UVA, UVB, infrared rays, and air pollution. As someone prone to redness upon sun exposure, wearing SPF during runs is crucial. What sets this product apart is its non-irritating formula, ensuring a comfortable run without stinging eyes due to sweat and sunscreen. Its quick absorption allows for easy makeup application on non-run days. 

Step 2: Purify me

At first, Purify Me felt slightly greasy, unlike my preference for foaming cleansers with more lather. With consistent use, however, I was won over. It doesn’t strip my skin of moisture like some cleansers do, and the Jojoba beads effectively remove dead skin cells and excess oil, leaving my face hydrated and refreshed. Post-exercise, cleansing is crucial to combat the warm, moist environment that encourages bacteria growth, making it an essential step in my routine. 

Step 3: Revive me

Revive Me emerged as my favorite among the three products. It’s exceptionally hydrating, leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. A little goes a long way, and it’s designed to enhance skin firmness and fight signs of aging – a welcome addition as I approach 40. 

These products have truly impressed me. The simplicity of a three-step routine is a time-saver, and the inclusion of SPF is essential for outdoor enthusiasts. Even with my sensitive skin, I’ve experienced no adverse reactions or breakouts. 

Moreover, for every skincare set sold, FRÉ Skincare plants an Argan Tree to contribute to reforestation efforts. If you’d like to try these products, you can enjoy a limited-time 25% discount with the code RUNWITHRACHEL.
