Not many people are talking about the beauty benefits of blueberries. But in K-beauty it’s one of the best-known hydrating ingredients. Today, we will dive into new product launches by Frudia to learn more about this superfood and its skincare benefits.
I’ve been testing Frudia products even before the brand has been officially launched in the US and I have lots of favorites and reviews to share. Saying so, I’m happy to announce the launch of the new series on my blog, called Frudia Vitamin Month where I will be talking about the benefits of fruits and berries for your skin and health and share reviews of my favorite Frudia products.
The first line I’d like to start with is Frudia’s Blueberry Line which is designed for skin lacking hydration. It features the brand’s best-selling moisturizer and three more products that constitute a full skincare regimen that will help after-sun skin look nourished, properly hydrated, and healthy-looking throughout the day.
Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Toner
As probably many of you, for the longest time ever I was not using a toner as a part of my skincare routine.
Usually, I would spritz my face with thermal water and start applying my creams and serums. While I still continue using thermal water, I do use a toner too.
I noticed that for my acne-prone skin it’s essential to replenish the skin after washing it with water and a gentle cleanser. A good toner not only delivers all the nourishing skincare ingredients into the skin but also helps to restore the pH balance of the skin that was stripped after washing with water.
Be prepared though that the Blueberry Hydrating Toner by Frudia is nothing that you ever have seen before. It features a bit thicker consistency than your typical water-based toner while acting almost like a serum.
After using this toner, I oftentimes feel that I don’t even need a moisturizer. That’s how hydrated my skin feels.
I also noticed that this product is perfect for situations when you need to apply makeup, but you don’t want to wash your face prior to doing so. I would use this toner as a cleansing solution for my skin.
After toner, I will re-apply a moisturizer and a serum and proceed with applying makeup. By using this technique I ensure that I’m hydrating my skin as opposed to stripping it from using too much water on my face. Check this technique out! I hope you like it too!
Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Serum
If you are like me and feel that there is no such thing as too much moisturizing, consider applying this hydrating serum before your moisturizer.
The reason is that creams feature a slightly heavier formula that in addition to providing skincare benefits also “locks” all the ingredients in the skin.
While serums feature smaller molecules that penetrate deeper into the skin and deliver all of the active ingredients deeper into the skin. In other words, it’s ideal to use both serum and a cream so you have all you ensure the delivery of all active ingredients deep into the skin while protecting your skin from “losing” them along the way.
While some people prefer using serums only at night, I don’t mind layering products in my morning routine too. Luckily, this serum also features a super lightweight formula. So you don’t need to worry that you will feel it on your skin.
Usually, I will get just one spritz of the product into my hands, warm it up in my palms and apply it all over my face. Then, I will let it sit for a few moments and finish with the Frudia moisturizer. As mentioned before, at night I will repeat the exact same order with the only exception that I will add a few drops of oil for added nourishment.
This gel moisturizer is my absolute favorite product from the line. It features the most lightweight and hydrating formula that I’ve tried in years.
Usually, gel moisturizers leave a slightly sticky residue that I personally can’t stand. That’s why I rarely follow dermatologists’ recommendations for using gel products if you have acne-prone skin.
To be honest, I was quite hesitant to test Frudia’s gel moisturizer too. But I ended up being so impressed with the product that I can’t imagine my skincare regimen without it!
Imagine the most lightweight, almost whipped gel formula that momentarily absorbs into the skin and leaves it bouncy and fresh-looking. The cream feels so thin and you barely feel it. This product is perfect for the days when you opt-in to applying makeup too.
If you are not a fan of foundations and concealers, I recommend this moisturizer too. It leaves your skin hydrated but not too shiny. So you don’t even need to worry about powdering your face after using this product.
I already used up an entire jar of Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Moisturizer which says a lot. It’s a real K-beauty gem!
Hydrating Sheet Mask
For the days when I want my skin to look extra glowing, I use hydrating sheet masks by Frudia. This mask comes in handy when you feel that your skin needs a deep hydrating treatment.
The mask is infused with a blueberry extract which ensures deep hydration. It also features grapefruit seed oil which is perfect for improving skin tone and making your skin look more radiant.
The mask smells so beautifully, feels so luxurious on your skin, and transforms your dehydrated skin. It’s hard to believe that this miracle product comes with such an affordable price tag!
That was it for my review of the new K-beauty line which is now available for purchase. I hope this post was helpful for you and you learned about the benefits of blueberries for your skin.
