Fresh Heals Your Beauty Battle Wounds
For those of you who aren’t already crazy about Fresh’s Crème Ancienne, let me fill you in. The hyper-rich skin salve, which brand co-founder Lev Glazman introduced in 2005, is based on a treatment dating back to the second century, when it was formulated to treat gladiators’ nicks and cuts. Yes, gladiators. Produced by hand at a monastery in the Czech Republic, it’s so beloved by the dry, aging-skinned among us that Glazman added an elixir to the line in 2006, and last month, thanks to the pleas of users who wanted to reward the skin beneath their peepers with the same sea buckthorn and jojoba oils, he launched an eye cream. I’ve been enjoying the rose water-scented balm as a pre-concealer primer that treats my dark circles with omega 7 fatty acids and antioxidants and provides a smooth canvas for all cover-up efforts. A word to the wise: While patting it onto the delicate area, bear in mind that a little goes a long way.
