Is Fresh’s Lotus Cream Worth the Price?

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer

The beauty and skincare brand Fresh has gotten a lot of attention over the last few years.  

Celebrities have been using and representing the brand, magazines have written many articles about their vast array of plant-powered products, and ordinary people like you and me have left reviews on the Fresh site singing the brand's praises. 

One product in particular that I've been hearing about more and more is part of the Lotus line — the Youth Preserve Line and Texture Smoothing Cream. 

The reviews I've read online are overwhelmingly positive, but you know me, I need to discover the truth for myself! Here's my experience with and the details of this viral product.

About The Brand and Product

Fresh is not new on the skincare scene — they've been around for over three decades and have earned their reputation for luxury and quality. The brand was founded in 1991 by Lev Galzman and Alina Roytberg. From humble beginnings of homemade soap, Fresh has grown into a global beauty brand with a firm hold in the luxury market.

The Lotus Day Cream is widely considered to be the best moisturizer in the Fresh catalog.

Size: 50ml (full size) 15ml (travel size)

Price: $56/ $23

Packaging: The cream comes in a frosted glass jar with a screw-on lid. I love this because I can reuse the jar after I've finished the product, and it's a lot more environmentally friendly than plastic. Luxury is definitely the word here; all of the Fresh products are packaged in an understated and chic way, making me feel like I'm buying a sophisticated treat for my skin.

The product: This cream is for daytime use. I found the formula nice and lightweight rather than overly heavy. 

It went on and sank into my skin quickly, so it's perfect for a morning skincare routine that happens before you apply your makeup. The texture is smooth and creamy, and I couldn't get enough of the scent. 

The real test of a cream like this is whether it does what it says it will do — in this case, smooth the skin, hydrate it, and minimize the visible signs of aging. Here is what Fresh says the product will do:

  • Smooth texture and the look of fine lines
  • Boost radiance for a youthful look
  • Deliver 24-hour hydration and preps for makeup

The antioxidant formula should smooth visible wrinkles and texture for supple, radiant skin, protect from daily stressors, reduce the looks of lines, and lock in moisture.


The formula has recently been upgraded and includes:

  • Super lotus to boost radiance and smooth lines.
  • Vitamin E to soothe and soften.
  • Polyglutamic acid to retain water and plump skin.
  • Star fruit leaf extract to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The formula also claims to minimize further premature signs of aging.

My Experience

With a high price tag, I had high expectations of buying this moisturizer. I was pleasantly surprised to find that every expectation I had was met — and, in some ways, even exceeded. So often, luxury products don't deliver results, but Fresh knows what they're doing.

I applied a thin layer to cleansed skin in the morning and patted it gently into my skin. The product sank into my skin in a few seconds, which is nice as I don't often have a lot of time in the mornings and like to get through my beauty routine quickly.


My skin looked dull and ashy from the winter weather, but my glow came back after the first use. I mean glow, not grease. My skin felt fresh and hydrated- no tightness at all after application. 

It was nice to feel good immediately, but what really made me happy was that the long-term results were also easy to see. Within a few weeks, my roughness and uneven skin tone started fading away, and I could even go without foundation if I wanted to!

The fine lines under my eyes filled in thanks to those skin-plumping ingredients. My face looked a lot fresher, too! I also had fewer breakouts after a few weeks of using this cream. I've discovered that well-moisturized skin leads to overall better skin health, including less chance of pimples.

Using Fresh Lotus Cream on Face

What's My Verdict?

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Line & Texture Smoothing Cream is definitely worth the price tag!  

I would spend every dollar of my money again and will continue using this product daily. Fresh has convinced me that I'm worth the luxury of a product that works this well.  

I'm so happy I gave this product a chance, and I think you should, too; you'll see the difference!
