Review: fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex

/ Thursday, March 13, 2014 /
FTC: I received a sample of this product from Sephora.

This product is one of a series of samples I recently received from Sephora. It is an interesting product made by fresh, a company known for their awesome lip balms and chapsticks. So, how well did the company make their skincare products?


-Super 7 Complex: Fresh’s proprietary age-defying, hydrating, and radiance-boosting blend of seven super-charged ingredients: Lotus flower extract, blue-green algae extract, hibiscus fruit extract, fig fruit extract, vitamins C and E, and vegetable glycerol. 
-Maca Root Extract: Enhances luminosity and cell turnover. 

Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Pentylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Betaine, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Steareth-21, Phenoxyethanol, Behenyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Sorbitol, Dimethicone, Sodium Pca, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Limonene, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Caramel, Algae Extract, Citric Acid, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Citral, Potassium Sorbate, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Sorbic Acid, Tocopherol.

I looked at the list of ingredients, and the top 10 include the everyday, run-of-the-mill water-based ingredients - glycerin and fatty alcohols for emollient properties and hydrations, with propylene glycol for better skin penetration. All of the "special ingredients" featuring the "Super 7 Complex" are actually toward the bottom of the list, so honestly I don't know how much of a difference it would make in the overall product.


  • Emollient, helped hydrate my skin
  • Did not break me out
  • Felt really thick - as if I were piling paint or foundation on my skin
  • Price - $42 for 1.7 oz!
Honestly, while it does do a good job of moisturizing my face without making me break out, it does just as well as most drugstore moisturizers with the kick of the 7 extra ingredients which inherently would most likely not contribute too much given their limited quantity of percentage in ingredients to make up the whole product. So thus, I will pass on getting the full-sized version of this product.
