Holiday 2022 Skincare

‘Tis the season to give skincare—it’s the gift that leaves them glowing! Have a bunch of people on your list? Of course! We’ve got the perfect gifts for everyone you’re shopping for. It’s a great way to share some of your favorite fresh products or treat them to something new they can try for the first time!


Have someone on your list who is iconic? They want the best-of-the-best—tried and true things that are essential. Well, this gift is for them. Our iconic Soy pH-Balanced Hydrating Face Wash. It’s our #1 hydrating face wash that deeply cleans pores and removes makeup while maintaining skin’s pH and increasing hydration. The non-stripping formula is proven effective on all ages, genders, skin types, and tones—so it's perfect for the essentialist or really anyone on your list. Want to give them a little more? Pair our Soy Face Wash with another fan favorite, Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence, to make it a little gift set. Our best-selling essence is powered by potent kombucha to provide protection from indoor and outdoor pollution plus blue light, while hydrating and minimizing fine lines for a smoother, more luminous complexion.

Light Packer

They’ve got somewhere to go this holiday and year-round! For the travel-loving person on your list, grab a gift set that will let them pack light—but keep their skin looking great at every destination. After all, jet leg is not a good look. Send them packing with our Cleanse & Hydrate Duo Skincare Set. It’s cleared for their carry on. This skincare gift set holds two of our must-have skin savers. Our Soy pH-Balanced Hydrating Face Wash—a universal face wash that’s proven to maintain skin’s pH while also cleansing, softening, and hydrating all skin types and tones. Plus, a mini Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer. We all know how drying traveling can make your skin. Our best-selling hyaluronic acid moisturizer delivers 72-hour deep hydration with strengthening damask rose extract for skin that is dewy and plumped with moisture. Want to pack their gift with a little something extra? Add in our new favorite face serum—Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum. Our unique serum has two potent phases—that with a few shakes—transform into a silky serum, to give thirsty, travel-weary skin exactly what it needs. With rosewater, damask rose, and lightweight nourishing oils, it deeply hydrates for 24 hours without a greasy finish.

Party Goer

Party’s here with this pal! Fun abounds and laughter never stops, but long days and nights can take a toll on their skin. Treat them to moisture and more with our coveted Lotus Antioxidant Daily Moisturizer. Our best-selling moisturizer features Super Lotus, a potent ingredient that prevents and addresses first signs of aging by boosting radiance, strengthening the skin’s barrier, and protecting from free radicals. Plus, star fruit leaf extract helps smooth the look of fine lines. It’s the gift of radiance. Want to make this skincare gift a skincare gift set? Throw in our companion face cream—Lotus Antioxidant Night Moisturizer. It’s the perfect pair for round-the-clock antioxidant skincare. Our nighttime moisturizer works when skin is more receptive to nourishment (at night!). Powered by antioxidant Super Lotus and enriched with peach leaf extract to help skin recover, they’ll wake up with rested, brighter skin. What a gift!

Spa Lover

Give them all the calming music, quiet space, and pampering products. That spa lover on your list is longing for a skincare gift that indulges. The perfect present—a face mask or three! Gift them our sought-after Travel Size Face Mask Trio Skincare Set, a skincare gift set they’ll adore. This gift set features our timeless Rose Face Mask—an instant hydrating mask with real rose petals suspended in a silky gel that gently soothes and tones with a plumping effect. Plus, two Black Tea masks! Our Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask is famous for its cloud-like whipped texture that leaves skin nourished, smooth, and dewy; and our Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask, which cocoons skin with intensely moisturizing and firming ingredients in fresh's black tea complex to give them a lifted look by morning. But before they mask, they cleanse. So, if you want to add something to their gift, what about our iconic Soy pH-Balanced Hydrating Face Wash? Our 1# face wash effectively cleanses all skin types and tones, maintains their skin's pH, and increases hydration. Plus, with cooling and calming cucumber extract, they’ll still feel all those spa vibes.

Beauty Obsessed

The latest, greatest, most-buzzed-about beauty—they know it! Your beauty-obsessed buddy is at the center of it all, and that means fully invested in our Black Tea and Kombucha Collections. Grab the skincare gift that highlights four of the best with our Black Tea Essentials Skincare Set. It features our Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence, a best-selling liquid treatment that protects, hydrates and minimizes fine lines for a smoother, more luminous complexion. It also has our Black Tea Firming Peptides Serum, a moisturizing serum that firms for a lifted look of facial contours and sculpted appearance with clinically tested results instantly and over time. The gift set also gives them our Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream, a do-it-all power eye cream that reduces the look of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines around the eyes while visibly increasing luminosity. And the final beauty-loved pick is our Black Tea Corset Cream Firming Moisturizer. Our cushiony cream delivers 24-hour hydration while improving skin elasticity and bounce with fresh's powerful black tea complex, goji fruit extract, and a firming peptide. Acting like a corset for your complexion, it helps to strengthen skin for a firmer, tighter, younger look. Talk about the beauty gift of all gifts!
