Product Details

Elixir Ancien smoothes the complexion and provides supreme nourishment. Blended by hand in a monastery, these natural oils absorb quickly to deliver the most precious ingredients in their purest forms. These oils must be poured in a particular sequence at a determined temperature—requirements that can only be met by hand. Fresh turned to a monastery to hand-blend each bottle because monks are an important part of Elixir Ancien’s heritage. Historically, if a formula was not produced by a monk, it was considered witchcraft. Without them, the original formula would not exist today.

"This elixir is the greatest skin care product ever!"

Miracle Product for my skin I have used other oils and although very expensive on a fixed income, this elixir is the greatest skin care product ever. I am 66 with the usual aging issues as well as combination skin with occasional breakouts. Since adding this product to my other Fresh serums and lotions I look 10 years younger and any breakouts have cleared up. I will never be without the Elixir Ancien as long as I can afford it. I can't say enough about how much I love this product. March 16, 2013
Excellent Product! I have very dry skin and this by far has been the only product that has worked. Yes it is expensive but considering that a bottle lasts a whole year- the value is excellent! A couple of drops go a long way! November 15, 2012
Very moisturizing Because I have combination, I have a little difficulty using this. It is definitely very moisturizing and would probably be great for someone with very dry skin. My problem is almost every time I use it, I break out. I don't break out all over my face, usually just one or two blemishes. November 6, 2012
Expensive? Yes. But worth EVERY cent. I have been an avid Fresh user ever since I put my hands on beauty products. I am one of those people who believe that beautiful-looking skin is one of the most important indicator of good health. Yes, this product is pricey and seems small, but when I buy one bottle of Elixir, I use it for the whole year b/c all you need is a few drops per day. I have sensitive/dry skin, and November winds and winter cold are my worst enemies. I make sure to use all the Ancien lines during this time of the year to have healthy, smooth skin--from eye cream, toner, face cream, but this amazing bottle of oil is really all you need if you find yourself in a tight budget. A tip for this product is that you should use it before you go to bed. It works best when you mix it with the creme ancien facial cream, but you can also mix it with other moisturizers. I know I am sounding a little crazy about this product, but trust me, invest in one bottle to save the trouble going to the spa to get your flaky dry skin to the rescue and ending up spending more dollars for less. I highly recommend this product! November 6, 2012
<3 Liquid Miracle <3 Ok, where do I even begin with this product? This is hands down my most favorite item to use on my face even more than my favorite soy face cleanser. I absolutely love love love love this face oil. I cannot rave to you about this enough. The only thing I do not love about this is the high price. I'm not going to lie it is expensive. However, since I cannot live without using this face oil and being that it is the only expensive item I use. I will save up money to continue to purchase this as my one special treat to myself. If you are looking to treat yourself to something special, trust me this is it! Liquid Miracle in a Jar is exactly what it is!! <3 November 6, 2012
