I'm using the Pristine about 4 weeks now, and I love it. I have a very sensitive skin, and I can see that the quality of my skin is slowly improving, becoming more radiant, equal, and soft. The smell is just gorgeous.
Very pleasant and refreshing. Soothes my sensible skin.
I love the brand and now the essence is the next product which goes into my routine! My skin is very sensitive and it is very hard to find a suitable product. I didn’t use a toner before because toners leave red spots on my face. However the essence is something completely different- it is very gentle and doesn’t dry out my skin. I would totally recommend it!!
Really pleased I made the switch to Pristine! I was using another like-product religiously for months and not seeing a difference in my skin tone and clarity. I switched to Pristine product and in just a month I’m already noticing better balance and more clarity. I also really appreciate the lightness of the product and the smell is an invigorating wake-up call before I start my day. Great addition to the F&S family!
As a regular user and big fan of the Soothe & Repair moisturizer and the Midnight Beauty serum, I was eager to try the latest product in the F&S line.
Happy to report that Pristine is another hit! The smell is soooo amazing; natural smelling (I love the smell of fennel), super calming, not like the perfumed smells you get in other products. It left my skin feeling super soft and primed to apply the F&S moisturizer. After using it for about a month, I noticed my complexion evening out. I never thought I would apply an Essence to my routine - but I’m so glad I did. A+ for the results!
A tip: they offer a sample pack so you can try the full line up. Highly recommend!
