Even the best stay-put primers, long-lasting makeups and most refreshing of mists don’t totally help save one very common skin problem: sweating. And, even if you’re more inclined to experience it from a slow walk down the block as opposed to a full-on workout session, chances are, it’s a summer concern.
Enter FRÉ. The three-piece line is the brainchild of founders Michael Azoulay and Mickael Bensadoun, who came up with the idea after seeing a woman on the beach with a very serious case of squinting-with-sunscreen-streaming-into-her-eyes. After discussing the situation with their wives, the duo came up with a solution: A sort of “athleisure” skin care that takes “sweat and exercise” (and solid anti-aging skin care) into account.

What makes the line different is that it’s not just meant to be matte—it’s intended to help combat problems associated with exercise like redness, dryness, sun damage, chaffing, excess sebum buildup and acne flare-ups, and the founders even claim it can help prevent against “runner’s face.” There’s a really lightweight SPF 30 (the Protect Me Defense Facial Moisturizer); the Purify Me Hydrating Facial Cleanser, which helps hydrate and gently exfoliate; and the Revive Me Deep Replenishing Serum, a mix of vitamins, antioxidants and collagen-boosters.
The trio is super simple to use and smells incredibly refreshing. Plus, it does make you look less shiny/oily/sweaty during the day, minus any dryness or the dreaded pore clog.
