When I got married 5 years ago we went to Greece for our honeymoon, and even though we were very much in a tourist spot I still managed to find a Sephora (I was in heaven) and every single pharmacy I went in to had an impressive selection of Greek made skincare (Korres and Apivita for example). Well here’s another impressive Greek skincare range to add to the list; Frezyderm. The brand is family owned and as been around for over 30 years – the range is actually huge and covers not just adult facial skincare, but hair care, baby skincare, sun care etc.
I have been trying a selection of goodies:
As usual the kiddies get a load of posh skincare to use! But here is the thing for mama:
Frezyderm Sun Screen SPF50 (£19.99) is a super lightweight sunscreen which leaves a velvety feeling and a matte finish. The idea of this sunscreen is that is also works to make the skin look temporarily better (ie. softening wrinkles) without feeling heavy. I like the packaging which is a bit different, although it is bulky;
I have really liked this sunscreen. I have been much better at using SPF lately after seeing little brown spots appear, and this one feels very light and does indeed seem to make my skin look gloomy and soft. I didn’t notice any ashy cast on my skin either and I found it quite moisturising without looking oily.
I also got some bits for the kids too.
I am ALWAYS on the look out for a good, none chemical SPF for the kids. That is my preference but in emergencies, I do absolutely use chemical sun screens on the kids too. Their kids sunscreen comes in SPF25 for babies and SPF50 for infants (this one is £17.99). When applied this sunscreen leaves a blueish tint so you can SEE when you are applying it and then that fades. The majority of high street kids suncreams are absolutely chemical based, but if you prefer mineral ones, this is perfect. The kids with with no irritation at all and it protected their skin well (remember to reapply). Buy it here.
The Baby Cream (£10.99) confused me at first because it’s huge – 175ml to be precise. I presumed it was a lotion then I realised with the thickness that it is definitely a bum cream. It seems like a HUGE tube of the stuff but I guess it would last well. It is a thick texture not unlike Sudocream but with lots of natural ingredients. My younger child is still in nappies but my older one is not. However, I don’t really need to use cream any more, BUT this kind of barrier cream is good for all skin irritations (ie. eczema) I use it to protect against the elements and sometimes seal in thinner lotions.
Finally this is random but I also tried the Sensi Teeth fluoride free toothpaste (£3.99) for the kids. This tastes like raspberries which was a hit with the children. I like that it’s fluoride free, it also happens to be sweetened with Stevia! No complaints from the kids so far.
The range is SO huge, Frezyderm is definitely worth checking out if you like natural products that are also effective.
