FRÉ Skin Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer Review


Manufacturer’s Claim

FRÉ Skin Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer claims to be a product designed for skin that sweats; delivering a fast-absorbing, hypoallergenic, and non-comedogenic formula that is also gentle on the eyes. This product claims to protect skin harmful external aggressors but does it offer a total care solution? This review will assess the product formula as well as customer service provided to guide you through your purchase choice.

Formula

  • Argania Active Complex
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin E
  • Chamomile flower and leaf extract
  • Melissa flower and leaf extract
  • Rooibos leaf extract
  • Symcalmin
  • Bisabolol

This product is comprised of a vegan formula that is also cruelty-free. The formula is made up of a variety of vitamins that protect the skin from external aggressors and promote skin regeneration, such as Vitamin A which supports healthy skin production or moisturizing Vitamin E which is also an antioxidant. Chamomile flower, Melissa flower, and Rooibos leaf extract are also rich in antioxidants which protect the skin from oxidative damage from the environment as well as calm and soothe the skin. Symcalmin and Bisabol are compounds known for their healing properties, which reduce redness and irritation. The formula also contains a patented ingredient, Argania Active Complex, which is designed to prevent premature aging while protecting the skin from sun damage. Although it is pleasing to see a patented ingredient, as these indicate a higher level of product quality, this formula only includes 1 whereas competing product has up to 5 patented ingredients to ensure efficacy. These ingredients include collagen-boosting Trylagen PCB and wrinkle-reducing Argireline NP. In saying so, this product may not be as effective in delivering anti-aging benefits as well as competing brands on the market. Furthermore, the lack of cGMP certification may imply that market-standard processes where not used during manufacture. This may jeopardize product quality, which is a concern.

Instructions

It is fortunate to note that the manufacturer offers clear instructions for use; stating that users should apply a small amount of cream from the tube onto the face and gently massage it in until the cream has completely absorbed. The manufacturer also says that the product is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, can be applied post-workout, and it water resistant. This product apparently lasts up to 90 days of use. However, there is no concentration of active ingredients provided so we cannot be certain as to the strength and efficacy of this formula.

Cost

FRÉ Skin Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website, where a 60ml tube retails for $50. While this may seem costly at first glance, the lifespan of the product may increase the affordability of the price. However, the lifespan may be subjective and differ per person. The lack of discounts and bulk offers does not promote the sustained use of this product.

Guarantee

FRÉ Skin provides a 30-day money-back guarantee for their products, which may seem considerate at first glance. However, upon having a closer look at the policy, we discovered that it is vague – omitting important information such as the condition of the product (whether it has been tested and partially used) to qualify for a refund. This may mean that curious customers will forfeit their refund if they open their product. This is a concern as this may suggest that the manufacturer is not confident in the quality and efficacy of their product. Furthermore, there are too few customer reviews for us to confidently confirm the manufacturer’s claims of product efficacy.

FRÉ Skin Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer Review – The Bottom Line

FRÉ Skin Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer claims to be a gentle yet protective product. The formula contains ingredients that are cruelty-free, consisting of many beneficial ingredients as well as 1 patented ingredient. However, the limited number of patented ingredients, the lack of concentrations, as well as a lack of GMP certification brings the quality of this product into question. Although the manufacturer offers clear instructions for use and a 30-day refund policy, the customer service is limited as the manufacturer guarantee is vague. This, combined with too few customer reviews to stand as testimony to the manufacturer claims of efficacy, makes us question the effectiveness of this product. The price is also very expensive and not supported by bulk deals or discounts. In saying so, we do not recommend this product as we feel that it is not worthy of your purchase.
