"When someone tells me a skincare product 'instantly' works, I often roll my eyes… I didn't know how I would honestly feel about a mask that claims to work in just five minutes. The odds were good in that I was already a fan of Fresh products. If you haven't tried any of its cult classics — such as the Soy Face Cleanser, Sugar Face Polish, and Sugar Lip Treatment — you're seriously missing out on some of the most beloved products at @sephora The brand does have quite a few masks — did it really need another one? Well, I sure did! Because the Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask is freakin' awesome. I sincerely love it, and I'm going to tell you why:
First of all, it contains a rock-star lineup of ingredients starring lotus flowers. In the mask, there are little lotus seeds infused in the creamy gel-like base. These are used to detox and exfoliate the skin. There is also lotus flower extract in it, which is known to offer antiaging benefits.
I like to apply it before a shower, because the cooling cucumber-scented formula helps me to wake up. I can brush my teeth or shave my legs, and by the time five minutes have passed, it's ready to be removed.
The next step is to massage the lotus seeds into your skin, taking off any dead cells. This is the part I like to do in the shower since it can get a little messy.
After, my skin looks significantly brighter and feels smoother. I'm personally not a fan of doing acid peels or using cleansing brushes at home, because my skin is sensitive and both can be irritating. Using gentle scrubs has routinely been my go-to exfoliating method, so I like that the Youth Preserve Rescue Mask takes care of that while also combating any dehydration. The formula feels buttery and nourishing.
As I mentioned, the mask works in just five minutes. And it actually works."

The skin around the lips is not only thinner than the rest of the face, it also isn’t equipped with the same defenses, like oil and sweat glands. Lips need protection from dryness (and bomb cyclone weather). Our Sugar Lip Treatments are packed with ingredients that not only smooth and protect but also prevent moisture loss.
Cannabis without the controversy. As cannabis continues to trend in the beauty and wellness space, our Cannabis Santal Eau de Parfum is the perfect wintry scent to chill out with—it shifts and changes as the day wears on. A sensual woodsy fragrance, it has notes of bergamot, cannabis accord, vetiver, and vanilla musk. #regram @decouleurblog

In Southeast Asia, the markets are full of our favorite bloom: the lotus flower. Every part of it can be used—there’s fiber in the stem that can be made into thread for fabric; the seeds are a great snack; and the root can be made into soups and delicious desserts. Bonus?

“I got to play with a lot of new @freshbeauty products this week during my stay at Big Sur. The Lotus Mask, which contains seaweed was one of my favorites. The lotus seeds and seaweed texture exfoliates and softens the skin. I personally love using this before applying makeup because my skin looks so smooth. I try and mask at least once a week and I’m excited to add this bad boy to my collection of masks. “ #Regram @simplysona @elizabethshrier
