If there is one thing we are passionate about at Avenue24 it's skincare. We're always on the hunt for the best and most effective products to keep our skin looking and feeling great - and Fresh Beauty has been a consistent favourite.
For us, it was almost as though this brand came out of no where. Popping up on Sephora's "Top Pick" shelves, appearing on every YouTube channel and then finally on the cover of every magazine. Fresh was dominating the beauty sphere - and still are! - so we think it's time to spill the tea on this major beauty brand.
For those of you who are new to this brand, Fresh Beauty is a growing skincare line focused on creating a "fusion of effective natural ingredients, and modern science". Created in 1991 by Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg with a simple Oval Bar of soap (which to no surprise sold out everywhere), their goal has consistently been to "transform everyday routines into sensorial rituals that are indulgent and effective".
Drawing inspiration from past rituals Fresh uses ingredients from various culture and time periods that have been proven to to be effective. Take their Rose Hydrating Skincare for example. This line was inspired by "Cleopatra's obsession with roses, bathing in their essence and perfuming her sails with petals" . In addition their highly raved about Sake Bath Soak was "inspired by the bathing rituals of Japanese Geisha, and was the first soak to be comprised of 50% sake."
Since inception this beauty brand has been consistently pushing the envelope to introduce new and effective natural ingredients into the beauty world. Doubling their line, they've been incorporating lip treatments , body care and lastly fragrance. For us Fresh has helped tame unruly skin and with safe, natural ingredients we know we're in good hands. So, in order to spread the word of our love and to help you discover the best of Fresh, we've narrowed down our top 4 beauty picks from Fresh Beauty:

Aimed at creating a hydrated and even complexion, this toner gently cleanses while soothing with the power of rose petals. This is our top pick because of it's hydrating complex and the fact that you can visibly see it remove any excess dirt your cleanser may have missed.
We're very big on lip care. Being in Canada with the cold days looming over us, it can really take a toll on our lips.

This mask works wonders for tired or dull skin. Known as the "5 minute facial" in a jar, this rescue mask combats overstressed skin to reveal a brighter, more youthful and smoother complexion.
