FRUDIA Blueberry Hydrating Cleansing Gel and My orchard hand creams review

All the thoughts and opinions in my posts are my own at the moment. The posts and reviews aren’t sponsored yet and the links I share aren’t affiliate links yet. For the case IF I’ll mark the sponsored/affiliate content.

Summer is coming and my roses are blooming. Every day open new buds and make me happy. I thought they’ll give a pretty background for a pic for my blog. Said and done!

After great experience with FRUDIA Citrus Brightening Toner I wanted to test some of other Frudia products. At the same time I was looking for a new cleanser and found Frudia blueberry cleanser. What a luck! Buy it and use it! – And I did. But I wanted smth more than only a cleanser and bought in addition these two hand creams. I’m curious are they really so good like I read in a review recently.

Hand creams – FRUDIA My orchard

Amount: 30 g
A very small tube for my taste. I would say more a bag size.

Where to buy and Price: I bought them on German Amazon for 2.99 €  Amazon Germany

The product

Frudia has a very large range of hand creams called My orchard. The range has 2 lines: high-nutrient and rice-moisturizing. You can recognize them on the colour of their caps. White of high-nutrient line and Dark of rice-moisturizing line. Altogether there’re 15 creams:

⦁ peach (white)
⦁ mango (white)
⦁ acai berry (white)
⦁ cactus (dark)
⦁ coconut (white)
⦁ cherry (white)
⦁ citron (white)
⦁ dragon fruit (white)
⦁ grapefruit (white)
⦁ mangosteen (dark)
⦁ pineapple (white)
⦁ passion fruit (white)
⦁ quince (dark)
⦁ raspberry wine (dark)
⦁ shea butter (dark)

Unfortunately, I could snatch only “Peach” and “Mango”. Everything else was out of stock.

Like the toner the creams are made with the R Vita W technology (processing of fruits/vegetables under low temperature to retain all the useful ingredients like vitamins for more effective care).

Ingredients – Peach:

Water, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil, Dipropylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Myristyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Squalane, Erythritol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Lauryl Alcohol, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Hydroxide, Adenosine, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Oil, Honey Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Tocopherol, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance

Ingredients – Mango:

Water, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil, Dipropylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Myristyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Squalane, Erythritol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Lauryl Alcohol, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Hydroxide, Adenosine, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Oil, Honey Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Tocopherol, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance

So, so! On Amazon’s page they claim the creams are free of parabens, mineral oil, silcones, artificial fragrances and bezophenon-3.  Here’s the screenshot:

And what you see if you read the ingredients list? What do you think about it?

Both creams are of white colour and have creamy texture. The consistency of “Mango” is a bit more fatty than of “Peach”.

They apply and spread very good. First they feel fatty, like nourishing creams usually feel, but don’t worry the creams absorb very quick in 1-2 minutes and make your skin smooth and glowing. Leave no fat or tacky film. Very good for working.

They both smell, but “Peach” has a more intensive scent than “Mango” and it lasts longer.

I personally like “Peach” more. Its scent is wonderful fruity. In addition it gives moisturizing effect and “Mango” not.

Conclusion: Not bad. I usually prefere moisturizing hand creams to nourishing, because they’re for me too fat, but these two I like. I would recommend them for people with dry and chapped hands, who works much with water. And those who aren’t afraid of silicones, mineral oil and other chemical stuff.

Cleanser – FRUDIA Blueberry Hydrating Cleansing Gel To Foam

Frudia has four lines for face care: pink (anti-aging), yellow (brightening), green (impure skin) and lila (moisturizing). The cleanser of other lines were too expensive compared to this one. The lower price is a good chance for testing a product I wouldn’t purchase otherwise and I decided to buy it.

Amount: 145 ml

Where to buy and price: I bought it like the hand creams for 7.99 € on Amazon Germany

The product

The main ingredient in the lila line are blueberries. The cleanser should provide moisture during washing and should be suitable for all skin types. I know, blueberies are very healthy and full of vitamins and other useful things, but why they’re good specially for moisturizing? Who knows the answer?

Ingredients:

Water, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Laureth-3, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Glycol Distearate, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance

Contains antioxidants: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Seed oil.

Blueberries alias Vaccinium Angustifolium should have the soothing properties.

The cleanser is more jelly-like than a gel. But it runs.

Has a nice scent of fresh blueberries.

Foams very good. Very gentle cleansing. After washing the skin feels hydrated and soothed. No skin-stripping or tightening feelings.

Conclusion: Very nice, but in my opinion for impure or oily skin are its cleansing qualities too weak. I don’t think of repurchasing it, but would recommend it for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin.

Stay beautiful like a rose 😉
