Fre Skincare – For Skin that Sweats

I’m so proud of myself.  I started training for my half marathon and I’ve been super consistent with my workouts.  I mix it up, but I usually run outside on the beach or down by the intercoastal waterway.  Southern humidity and heat in August is NO JOKE though.

When Fre Skincare reached out to see if I was interested in trying their line of products developed for “skin that sweats,” I was intrigued.  I thought that this was the perfect time to put these products to the test during one of the hottest months of the year.


Fre Skincare was developed for women who are active and to promote “beauty in motion.”  The brand is all about creating a positive body image and feeling good in your own skin while working out.

I’ve never really thought of it before, but think about what types of faces you make when running. Mine probably go from feeling great to the massive huffing and puffing, can’t wait to for this to be over face (total honesty here).

Fre set out to develop skincare to fight skin damage caused by environmental factors, sweat, and other exercise-induced skin damage.


Fre sent over the 123Fre Set.  This set contains three items:

  • Protect Me (moisturizer with SPF 30)
  • Purify Me (hydrating facial cleanser)
  • Revive Me (deep replenishing serum)

These products are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic.

The key factor in Fre Skincare is the Argania Active Complex (from a kernel and leaf of the Argan tree).  It is formulated with argan stem cells, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, Polyphenols, Carotenoids, Squalene, Essential Fatty Acids, and Sterols.  What a powerful blend of goodness!

If it couldn’t get any better, these products are also free from parabens, SLS, Mineral Oil, DEA, Petrolatum, PEG, Prophylene Glycol.  They aren’t tested on animals and they are vegan!

Oh!  AND they give back! Buy a set, plant a tree!  Pretty cool!

My Thoughts

I’ve been using these products for a few weeks now and I’m LOVING them.  I’m pretty picky when it comes to skincare, but I do love these staples.

Purify Me Cleanser:

The cleanser makes my face feel so soft and hydrated.  I dampen my face a bit before I apply and cleanse.  I wipe with a fresh face cloth to remove.  It’s fab and it doesn’t take a lot at all!

Revive Me Serum

This serum makes my skin feel fresh.  It’s formulated to reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.  The serum absorbs FAST, isn’t oily, and gives you a fresh, ready to go look.  I really have enjoyed using it and will continue to use it in the future.

Protect Me SPF Moisturizer

The product that has surprised me the most.  Yes, I honestly didn’t have high hopes because my face HATES SPF.  Break-out central over here, especially when I workout.  This one though? Not one breakout from this SPF.

This is also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.  It apply easily, no white cast, and didn’t clog my pores.  Also – biggest part here: my eyes didn’t sting after applying and sweating all over the place (cute, I know).

I’m super impressed with this company, their mission, and that it works.  Their team is very kind, offering superb customer service.

They also provided a special offer for you guys for 25% off with the code: FIREFLY25 (not affiliated, just a super nice discount if you’re interested in trying)!

Let me know if you decide to try these!  I’m super impressed!

Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
