I always stick to my usual skincare products. A few times I have strayed off course, most of the time trying to save a bit of money. With a lot of skincare products I have tried and tested over my time, what with samples from previous spa jobs and various facial treatments, I have unfortunately found that spending a little more gets you a little more. Whenever I have attempted switching to a cheaper drugstore alternative it hasn’t worked for me – moisturiser, cleanser, nope! They seem too heavy or too runny and don’t heal the skin but simply sit on the surface until you wipe it off. I also try to save my more expensive spa products until I absolutely need them, which also probably does my skin no good, so I needed something that worked and didn’t cost the earth. FrezyDerm products are fitting the bill right now after I was sent two full sized tubes, one to be moisturiser and one to be serum. With my constant dry skin and season-changing t-zone I was sure going to put them to the test.
I tried the moisturiser at the perfect time, a major flare up of dry skin. After three gym classes without a sip of water and washing my face fairly vigorously I found my skin felt incredibly dehydrated. I will admit that because my skin was so sensitive at the time I was hesitant about applying a new product but I needn’t have worried. Almost immediately the moisturiser soothed the dry skin on my cheeks and the area around my mouth which had started to become uncomfortable. The moisturiser hydrated the rest of my face which had previously felt very tight before application and made me feel much more human.
Applying the product was great as it is a light texture that doesn’t feel like it’s clogging the pores or simply sitting on the face. It slides easily, soaking into the skin, and moves around so you do not need as much of the product. I use two pumps for my face and one for my neck which works well for me. I have been using the moisturiser once a day, in the morning before applying any make up, as it also states it can be used as a base.
The Revitalising Serum was another product I was able to try from the range and this was one I was wary about. Every time I have previously used a serum it has blurred my vision. Not in such a bad way I couldn’t see just so much that I repeatedly ended up drying my eyes. After this happened a few times I applied less each time, finally trying it just on my cheeks, yet nothing worked. Serum use stopped after a few times when different products gave the same results. This one from FrezyDerm however did not give me that issue, no blurry eyes and no wiping, perfect. Another plus point for this serum is also its texture. It is thicker than most so there is no waste. Some serums with a more watery consistency tend to slide through my fingers before it has reached my face, not this one.
My first impressions of the packaging were mixed. The products certainly look like they have come out of the lab with their test tube appearance but on further use I actually love it. It’s different and completely shows off the FrezyDerm company background and origin (being made for dermatologists). The pumps are also great giving you just the right product amount without waste as some tubes can do.
As I hadn’t heard of the brand before I undertook some research on who they were and what else they provide. The brand has many areas including baby care products, skincare including treatments for skin issues such as acne and sun protection products. Due to their history in dermatology they can be seen as a trustworthy and knowledgeable brand and even though I had not seen their lines in stores previously I would now purchase online. The 24 hour moisturiser I had been sent cost £16.50 from the FrezyDerm website with the Revitalising Serum priced at £24.50. These to me are very reasonably priced and lie inbetween the high street and spa prices but certainly have the quality in their products results.
If you have tried anything from FrezyDerm tell me how you got on! Did you like it or are you wanting to try it now?
