Spotlight On: Fresh

If you’re going to get a facial this Spa Week, make sure it’s Fresh!


Fall Spa Week is just around the corner, (October 14-20) which means it’s time to book your $50 services! You’ve definitely heard of the incredible Fresh product line (their Fresh Sugar lip treatments have a serious cult following), but did you know they also offer facials and body treatments? This season, you can get one of their three fabulous facials and $50 worth of products at a Fresh store near you—all at just the $50 Spa Week price point!

Since its debut in 1991, Fresh products have been a fan favorite known for natural ingredients and intoxicating aromas. In 2005, founders Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg came up with a plan to allow customers to experience the luxurious products before they had to commit to a purchase. Cue the launch of Espace, an exclusive program where licensed estheticians pamper you with facial or body treatments using the products in a cozy room at the back of the store. What’s better than try it before you buy it? This Fall Spa Week your $50 Spa Week treatment is completely redeemable for your choice of Fresh products! We’re booking our appointments now before they fill up, and you should too.

If your skin is oily or acne prone Fresh’s 60 Min Purification Facial with Umbrian Mattifying Clay is your best bet. It detoxifies, purifies, clarifies and can help treat acne. If you’re worried about fine lines and wrinkles, try the 60 Minute Black Tea Age-Delay Facial. Their black tea formula is proven to soften, smooth, maintain elasticity and reduce fine lines. If your skin is becoming drier as the fall months approach us, go for the 60 Minute Nourishment Facial with Crème Ancienne. This cream not only moisturizes, but prevents dry skin. It softens, soothes, balances and can smooth wrinkles too.

National Sake Day: Sake Skin Products

It’s hard not to notice Cate Blanchett’s impossibly pearly, clear skin in ads for SK-II skincare products. And in honor of National Sake Day on October 1, we wanted to bring you the interesting back story on this luxury brand. Hint: It has to do with sake.

Sake is good for your skin. SK-II began when scientists noticed that the elderly workers in a sake brewery in Japan had perfectly youthful, wrinkle-free hands — even if they had wrinkles elsewhere on their faces and bodies. Since their hands were in constant contact with the sake, the scientists theorized that something in it must be keeping the skin on their hands looking young. After years of research, they isolated what they call a “miracle” ingredient: PiteraTM. This naturally-derived liquid that’s created when the yeast in sake ferments is the main ingredients in all SK-II products.

If you’re planning to splurge on something from this high end line, three standouts include the Cellumination Essence EX and Cellumination Cream EX (hydrating, skin-evening daily youth boosters) and the Facial Clear Solution (a water-based moisturizer that regulates oilier skins).

More brands pay homage to sake, too. Fresh formulated it’s Sake Bath with over 38% sake, and one user on their website who added it to her bath swears, “My body instantly went calm and relaxed.” Not unlike how we feel after imbibing some real sake, right?

100% Pure uses sake in its Brightening Scrub & Mask. In fact, a lot of brands use sake-derived kojic acid for it’s brightening and skin-evening properties.

If you have freckles, age spots, or just need to brighten and even out your skin, it’s a good ingredient to look for for gentle, regular exfoliation.

We hope you found this information useful (and found an excuse to indulge in some sake — it’s good for your skin!).

Let us know in the comments how you’ll be celebrating National Sake Day… and if you’ve tried or love any of the products we mentioned here.
