Be Fraiche

 

Another week, another round of beauty products to explore, and with Christmas coming there’s no better time to look at some new skin care ideal for stocking fillers, which looks great, smells amazing and actually does what it claims, all at an affordable price. Be Fraîche is a new brand which fuses a lineup of powerful Asian and Western ingredients with deliciousFrench aromas, all hand-picked, lab-tested, and scientifically formulated. As the story goes the founder of the brand made 19 attempts to get the Bean Scrub right! The Be Fraîche range includes three essentials for fabulous looking skin, all coming in handy-yet-generous sizes. First up is the Flower Face Cream (rrp $35), a lovely anti-ageng moisturiser inspired by the power of flowers. It aims to fight free radicals, protect your skin from sun damage, even out your skin tone and improve your complexion overall, using ingredients such as rose hydrosol, edelweiss and calendula extracts, sunflower and camellia oils. It’s velvety, hydrating, and smells lovely.

 

Summer skin needs to be exfoliated regularly, especially if you’re planning to fake tan, and the Be Fraîche Bean Face Scrub (rrp $29) is ideal. It’s powered by Japanese adzuki beans and plant oils, a balm-to-milk face scrub which removes dead skin cells, while nourishing your skin and leaving it feeling super soft, super hydrated, and glowing. Before you use either of these two great products, try the Tea Cleanser (rrp $26.00). The formula is gentle, but it removes dirt, make-up, sunscreen, oils and impurities, effectively. It also soothes dry and sensitive skin, which can be a problem if you’re spending a lot of time in the sun, and for the guys, it can help tiny shaving cuts to heal faster. All Be Fraîche products are not only good for your skin in terms of what they do, but they are also free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, PEGs, silicones, aluminium, synthetic fragrances and colourings, and there is no animal testing of any kind. You can buy the range from www.befraiche.com, and ideal for Christmas stockings, and travellers conserving space in their luggage, the 3-step ‘Bundle of Love’ Starter Set costs just $25.
