Fresh Sugar Lychee Review

fresh lychee

 

If you ask me what’s my favorite bath and body products, you can definitely expect me to mention the Fresh brand of shower gels and lotions. In fact, their products play a starring role in my current bathroom situation. One of the scents I love from Fresh is the Sugar Lychee. It’s probably the scent that solidified my love for Fresh products because it’s quite unique, and nothing like I’ve ever smelled before. I also love some other Fresh scents like the Hesperides Grapefruit which I reviewed here in the blog a few years ago, and I also adore their Citron de Vigne line which I will be reviewing soon.

 

In this review, we’ll talk about the very intriguing Fresh Sugar Lychee. Fresh has made a soap, a body lotion, a shower gel, a fragrance, and a sugarbath out of this lovely scent. Let’s take a look at their lotion, shower gel, and sugar bath below.

 

Fresh Sugar Lychee Body Lotion review

 

Sugar Lychee Body Lotion (10 oz: 26 USD) – This lotion has sweet notes of lychee but it’s not overwhelming. It’s really moisturizing on the skin even with just a few drops. I love the softening effect that this has and it’s definitely lightweight. It also sets on the skin easily so there’s no sticky feel. I love that this lotion moisturizes my skin throughout the day, leaving no dry patches. I didn’t really notice any additional scent from this lotion, other than being a pure light lychee.

Sugar Lychee Bath Shower Gel (10 oz: 23 USD) – This antibacterial shower gel foams very well and you don’t need to use much of it. I do find that the scent of this can be quite cloying at times, yet still bearable nevertheless. For me, it doesn’t smell like lychee that much. It’s more like a mixture of lychee, brown sugar, a bit of citrus, and something else. Out of all the Fresh Sugar Lychee products mentioned here, this is the one I like the least.

Sugar Lychee Sugarbath (6.35 oz: 39 USD) – This the first Fresh Lychee product I’ve ever tried and I loved it immediately. It’s basically sugar cubes filled with lychee scent and Bicarbonate soda that aids in exfoliating dead skin cells as you shower. Each cube is made with natural ingredients and you can either use one directly on the skin or you can throw it in the tub. Be very careful when rubbing the cube against the skin, because it can be scratchy. Although I find that it isn’t really as scratchy as some other sugar baths I’ve tried before. The scent of this is what I considered a true lychee scent and it’s really really good. The heavy glass container of this product also looks pretty and can be repurposed as storage for cotton balls or cotton pads.

Fresh recently updated the packaging of their shower gels and lotions, which now has a pump. I find the pump to be a little difficult to maneuver as it seems to get stuck on the product and you have to exert more effort to pump the product out. I honestly kind of prefer the previous design of the packaging. But overall, I highly recommend these products and I think Fresh did a very good job of creating them.

 

Are you a fan of Fresh body and skincare products? Have you tried any of these before? What do you like about them?

Favorite Body Cleansers And Body Scrubs

favorite body wash and shower gels

 

Hi guys, I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas soon and I’ve been busy prepping my home and doing some last minute gift wrapping for my friends and families. This year, I’m playing Santa so I’ve got several presents to hand to. Oh, the joys of the holidays! Anyhow, as promised on my Insta, I’m sharing you now my personal favorites in body scrubs, cleansers and shower gels.

 

This post is a continuation of my roundup review of some of my favorite body lotions and body butters, seen HERE, as well as my fave dry body oils, HERE.

 

I love body cleansers and body scrubs. I always look forward to using them everytime I shower instead of the using the good ‘ol soap bars which are kinda messy to use. I not only like the convenience of using shower gels, but I also love to buy them in different scents so I could alternately use them depending on my mood, the season, or what my skin currently needs.

 

These are my faves so far.

 

Korres Shower Gel review

 

Korres Shower Gel (13.53 oz: $21 Korres site, $38 Amazon) – These have been my favorite go-tos because they come in several scents and they remind me of that nice fresh Mediterranean shower. My favorite scent so far is the Japanese Rose, Cassis Fig, Yogurt, and I still want to try the Guava one. These shower gels don’t foam as much but each bottle is large enough and can last a month or two. I love how these don’t dry my skin and it’s great to use everyday.

 

Philosophy Falling In Love Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel (16 oz: $26) – My newest love from Philosophy and it has a sweet warm vanilla scent. The bottle is huge and the cleanser itself has a light lavender shade which looks cute with its message of Falling in Love with yourself. This lathers well and it leaves my skin thoroughly cleansed.

 

Philosophy Falling In Love Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel, Kiehl's Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil-To-Foam Body Cleanser

 

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil-To-Foam Body Cleanser (2.5 oz: $12.50, 8.4 oz: $29) – If you love the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil reviewed HERE, then you’re gonna enjoy this unique body wash. It first starts as oil then it transforms into a foamy body cleanser as soon as you rub it a few times on the skin. It is so moisturizing and perfect for those with dry skin. I tend to use this around this cold winter season to protect my skin from dryness.

 

Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Bath & Shower Gel (10 oz: $20) – This is one of my most favorite body washes of all time. This smells so fresh, so invigorating and just so good. I also have the body lotion version of this cleanser, reviewed HERE. I like using this shower gel all year round even though this has a Summer-vibe scent. I just love how this awakens the senses and it’s definitely foamy, energizing and just perfect in every way.

 

Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Cleanser (8.5 oz: $20) –Β  Another personal fave of mine and one of the first few body washes I’ve ever loved and even keep using up to this day. This smells like fresh bursts of oranges and clementines. The only drawback is that this doesn’t foam much, so it’s costly to use without using a scrub or a loofah.

 

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash

 

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash (18 oz: $8.99) – My favorite drugstore body wash along with the other Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Body Wash with Apricot & Honey. This is inexpensive, easy to find anywhere and this has a nice clean mild scent that lathers well. The texture of this is gel-like and it’s super moisturizing for daily use.

 

Scrubs

 

I haven’t experimented on several body scrubs since I tend to use them once or twice a week at most just so my skin won’t dry as much. Currently, there’s only two that I keep coming back to and these are from Aesop and Dove.

 

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub

 

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub (6.1 oz: $35) – This is a pricey body scrub that is super grainy and totally exfoliating. I love the fresh green scent of this that’s just spa-like and it leaves the skin soft and smooth after every wash. Further reviewed HERE.

 

Dove Exfoliating Body Polish (10.5 oz: $5.99) – A well-made inexpensive body scrub that is loaded with moisturizing ingredients and it leaves the skin supple with a nice variety of fruity milky scents. My fave one is pomegranate. See some of the other scents reviewed HERE.

 

 

Have you tried any of these body cleansers yet? What’s your go-to body wash?
