|Fresh Anise Day Serum||
Fresh offers a complete line of skin care products including cleansers, toners, exfoliators, masks, moisturizers, age delay products, brightening creams, and sun protection. Fresh Anise Day Serum is one of their popular products. Additionally, Fresh offers hair care products, body care products, makeup, fragrances, and a line of products for men as well. The company has been in business since 1991 and was started by Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg whose mission was to offer natural, high quality body care and fragrance. Other products were added to their collection in 2001 and 2002. Fresh Anise Day Serum is marketed as a “skin firming veil” that, when applied to skin, helps to combat the signs of aging.
Fresh Anise Day Serum contains the following ingredients: Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric/Succinic Tryglyceride, Sodium Polyacrylate, Pimpinella Anisum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Commiphora Myrrha Extract, Helichrysum Angustifolium Wax, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Iris Florentina Root Extract, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Root Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cyathea Medullaris Leaf Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Silica, Fragrance (Parfum), Tetrasodium EDTA, Chlorphenesin, Propylene Glycol, Polyacrylamide, C13 – 14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Propyl Gallate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Metabisulfite, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, BHT, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), and Iron Oxides (CI 77491).
Many of the ingredients in Fresh Anise Day Serum are natural ingredients such as Grape Seed Oil, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, and many others. The most active anti-aging ingredients are likely Tocopheryl Acetate and Retinyl Palmitate, which often go by their common names of Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
- Vitamin E is known to protect the skin from sun damage and Vitamin A is a powerful anti-oxidant that increases elasticity in the skin.
- Fresh offers free shipping on any order over $50.00 and provides three free product samples with every order.
- Most of the ingredients are all natural and less effective than other engineered ingredients on the market such as Matrixyl 3000 and Argireline.
- Most products with Vitamin A, or Retinyl Palmitate, are not good for those with sensitive skin.
- Fresh Anise Day Serum costs $85.00 for a one ounce container of product. This is expensive to the average consumer who will likely be looking for more dramatic results than this product can provide.
The Bottom Line
Fresh Anise Day Serum is probably a good product for consumers who are looking for more natural ingredients. Though it will probably improve the skin over time with continued use, Fresh Anise Day Serum will likely not provide noticeable results like products which contain more powerful ingredients will.
