I had a look at their website and decided I really liked the look of the Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo. So I asked if I could have that. After a little chat with Fliss of Fresh Naturals she kindly also sent me a few other products to try out and review too.

Fliss sent me the following to try including my Face Duo Mask that I won:
- Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo
- Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser
- Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub
- Seascape Handmade Natural Soap
When I opened the parcel everything was really well wrapped in pretty tissue paper and the smell that emanated from the box was just gorgeous!
The Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo (Cleanser and Mask) is just so lovely. I wasn’t sure if I should grab a spoon and eat it or put it on my face! Honestly, such a yummy smell. As you can see, it’s a thick creamy texture that glides onto the skin.
I applied it with a brush and you don’t actually need very much at all, so it’s going to last for quite a number of applications.
I left the mask on for around 20 minutes or so, then hopped into the shower. It rinsed off my face very easily without having to rub at it. With some clay mask they can be drying and leave the skin feeling tight even though they do a fantastic job at drawing out impurities. This wasn’t the case with this mask at all. It left my skin feeling really soft and it looked really clear and clean too.
You can actually use this Face Duo mask with a muslin face cloth as a hot cloth cleanser. I’ve not yet tried using it like that as I really love my masks.

It’s a really gorgeous soap and I adore the citrus Grapefruit scent it has, with that touch of spicy black pepper. They blend perfectly together.
Then we have these two bars, an Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser (left of pic) and a Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub (right of pic).
These smell so amazing, I really wish you could smell them for yourselves. I don’t think I can do the scent of them justice!
The Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser just smells so so good. I can smell the Argan oil but the main thing I can smell is the Cocoa. It actually smells like chocolate to me; a creamy chocolate bar. It’s really moisturising and leaves your skin feeling not only soft but smelling heavenly too. I love the simple yet pretty dried Heather flowers that have been used on it too. It’s a really nice touch. These would look beautiful in a bathroom or guest room and would also make it smell lovely too.

Lastly but far from least is the Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub.
This has a really subtle citrus scent from the Lemon Peel Oil and Grapefruit Peel Oil, a whisper of cocoa and just smells gorgeous. It’s a sugar scrub in a bar and is perfect in the shower or bath to use to gently exfoliate and moisturise your skin at the same time. It leaves the skin soft and nourished and gets rid of all the dead skin that makes your skin look so dull.

I’m really thoroughly impressed with all the products that Fliss sent me. They smell gorgeous, they feel wonderful; not to mention they leave your skin feeling amazing. Best of all they are all made with natural ingredients too!
I definitely recommend you stop by Fresh Naturals and take a look at their other products; you won’t be disappointed by what they have on offer for bath and body! They have such a great selection of products available. There is something for everyone.
