WANT IT: Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer

Well gee I must be asleep because I didn't notice that Fresh recently introduced a new primer to their collection. I was in Atlantic City this past weekend and while at the Bluemercury Apothecary Spa I came across Fresh Rose Fresh Face Primer.

Read ahead for the deets!

This is the third release of primer from Fresh with High Noon and Twilight already a part of the collection. Although Fresh Rose Primer could easily be mistaken for Fresh Twilight at a glance and perhaps considered a dupe rest assured in texture and formula they are considerably different. I have Fresh Twilight and it's an iridescent finish that casts a highlight on cheeks and face. After swatching Fresh Rose I was quite delighted that it was simply a white, fresh smelling primer that absorbed easily without leaving behind a finish of any kind.

Where as High Noon and Twilight cast a glow to skin Rose simply lays the foundation for a fresh, dewy face that you can follow up with makeup or just enjoy au natural.


I didn't buy it as I had already indulged too much that day at the Spa but I'm thinking it made end up in my basket shortly. It's available at Fresh's site right now if you find you're yearning for it after reading this.

Anyone a lover of Fresh primers?

Which ones?

I have a moderately sized collection of Fresh products, but I'm let down by their cosmetic pursuits. Actually, I've lost a lot of love for Fresh. I love their scents but they aren't that WOWing to justify their high price tag.

I didn't like their Twilight primer much. Clogged my pores up like it was going out of style.

hi crotchyfairy!

Thankfully no probs with clogged pores but $36 for such a small tube is kinda sad :( I like Twilight alot just wish it was a larger size or a smaller price tag :-D

I use this primer and like it for a lot of the reasons you listed -- fresh smell, can be worn on it's own, etc. I also like the fact that it's dimethicone free. It doesn't keep my oily skin at bay as long as I would like, but since primers with the dreaded "D" tend to cause some major breakouts, I'd rather have to blot at noon than spot treat several ugly zits over the next two days. =)

I agree -- the price tag for Fresh is hefty. I haven't been wowed by a lot of their new offerings either, but I've got my faves and I'm sticking to them. Love the concealer, face powder, and spf lip balm, although I (and my wallet) cry a little each time I buy them.
