123FRE by FRÉ Skincare: Syd’s honest review + DISCOUNT CODE!
I have seen the FRÉ skincare line as I’ve been scrolling across my instagram before, and I’ve been wanting to try it for some time & I know you have too!! Their targeting towards the athletic female & attention to detail with their products (as well as their gorgeous packaging, can I get an A-MEN?) had me hooked.
Here’s just a few details you can swoon over as well about the company (straight from the pamphlet they sent with my products):
- FRÉ is a skincare brand designed to work with your SWEAT.
- FRÉ is natural skincare!
- FRÉ will leave you free to work out while protecting your skin both during and after you workout.
- For every set you purchase, the FRÉ team plants an Argan tree (as they call it the ‘tree of life’, details below)
- FRÉ harnesses the breakthrough Argania Active complex, created from the kernel and leaf from the Argan tree. Which with continued use as an active ingredient, has been shown to combat the majority of outdoor, exercise and sweat-induced damage to facial skin without interfering with the beneficial cooling and cleansing process of sweating.
- Hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested formulas that are non-comedogenic (no clogging of pores!).
- Suitable for all skin types.
- Free from parabens, SLS, mineral oil, DEA, petrolatum, PEG, Propylene glycol.
- NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS.
- VEGAN SKINCARE!
This blog post was sponsored in part by FRÉ skincare by way of complimentary products and a discount code (SYDNEY25, 25% off) for my followers. The complimentary products in no way sway my honest reviews. Read on for more details about this skincare!
So, now you want to know what I got in my set! Let’s dive right in! All specific details about the products have come straight from the pamphlet included in my package.
Hydrating Facial Cleanser
- Restores natural pH balance of skin
- Unclogs pores and removes toxins
- Prevents breakouts and irritation
- Soothes Redness
- Hydrates and nourishes skin
Syd’s two cents: AKA Cleanser! Use first thing in the morning, at night after makeup removal, and after a sweat! I love this stuff! At first I wasn’t a fan of the micro-beads (jojoba beads, pictured above. click to zoom in) within the cream-based cleanser but they definitely grew on me! Purify Me has helped calm my oily skin, and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated without the added weight! 100% recommend!
Deep Replenishing Serum – Enriched with Argan Stem Cells.
- Regenerates collagen and improves skin elasticity
- Combats photo-aging and other environmental effects
- Improves skin firmness and density
- Reduces wrinkles
- Replenishes lost minerals and vitamins
- Promotes healthy and natural glow.
Syd’s two cents: AKA serum! Apply a thin layer after you’ve completed your workout for the day (after cleansing with Purify Me), and nightly before bed. I LOVE THIS STUFF! It absorbs right away and a little goes a long way. 100% Recommend!

Defense Facial Moisturizer – SPF30! Water resistant for up to 80 min & fast absorbing.
- Shields skin from UVA, UVB, & IRA rays
- Prevents dark spots
- Combats photo-aging and environmental damage
- Deeply hydrates and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier
- Softens skin and promotes a healthy natural glow.
Syd’s two cents: The directions say to use directly before you work out, but I workout in a dark room, out of environmental factors’ direct exposure, so I typically don’t put this on before teaching or taking CycleBar classes. I did try it out to see how it felt, and my sweat didn’t sting my face, and no redness after class! Barely could tell I was wearing any moisturizer at all! AFTER my workouts, though, I apply this after Purify Me & Revive Me as my daily moisturizer. WHICH IS HUGE since I usually skip SPF due to it’s heavy feel. Would you believe that that’s the end of the facial products I’ve been using as of lately?! I need a bigger bottle for next beach season! 100% Recommend!
BONUS: all 3 products came beautifully packaged in FRÉ branded bubble wrap zip pack (THE CUTEST!) and included a gorgeous and perfectly sized blue canvas drawstring bag that fits the 123FRÉ line PLUS my mascara, maybe an eyeliner if I’m feeling feisty, and my shampoos — PERFECT GYM BAG ESSENTIALS!
The Review: 123FRE
let’s get down to it already!
Time-saver Level: EXPERT!
So, not only were those bullet points & product details AMAZING. You’ll also save a crap load of time! Time-saver level: EXPERT – that’s what you’ll be when you switch to FRÉ skincare! Their 123FRE line is just that – easy as 1-2-3! & guess what?! Some days I didn’t even use all three items!!!
Your new go-to gym bag essentials!
I’m so sure you’ll want these too, that FRÉ has given me a code to make sure you get to try them at a discounted rate! THANK YOU FRÉ! If you’re reading this, be sure you jump on this ASAP! ESPECIALLY if you’re a sweaty Betty (that pretends to try to be super feminine) like me.
I look forward to washing my face!
YES! I used to hate it. Too many products. TOO MANY EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS. Ya’ll, I’m tired at the end of the day. I want to get in my bed. It now takes me LESS THAN 2 minutes for my whole night routine. Same for the mornings when I stumble, blind-mind you, into the bathroom to start my day. Bing – Bam – Boom… *don’t poke your eye out with your mascara* done!
Ya’ll. I was skeptical I would see results in a week… BUT HOLY MOLY! My pores on my face, shrunk. LESS workout induced acne. BRIGHTER skin! Less oily buildup. You’ve gotta try this for yourself! I’m thinking this Argania Complex is the new Unicorn of skincare. For real, yo.
THE FINAL VERDICT + CODE!
YES, honey! Try this line! My final verdict was not only based on the results I saw from these products, and how they felt on my face when I worked out, but ALSO on the cost associated with refilling as needed. Under $120 for the trio set (plus my discount code below makes it even better!). FRÉ also has a DETOX ME that I’ve got my eye on hard core! (YES THERE’s A MASK! *gasp*). You can add detox me to your 123FRE order! $159 regular price for FOUR PRODUCTS!!!
