It feels like a lifetime since I got back from Cambodia with Fresh, but it was actually just two weeks ago! It took around 15 hours to get to Siem Reap, but it was totally worth the trek. When I stepped out of the airport I was immediately hit with the heat and humidity and as a summer baby I fully embraced it. A super retro taxi picked us up and brought us to the hotel which I was super excited about, but little did I know that was just the beginning of what this trip had in store for me!

After the awesome taxi journey I was beyond thrilled to say hello to my home for the week! I stayed at Raffles which actually had one of the oldest elevators in all of Cambodia! Make sure you check out my vlog below to see this awesome lift! I had way too much fun going up and down the hotel.

The reason Fresh brought me to Cambodia was to learn more about the lotus flower which is a key ingredient in their lotus range. Before visiting cambodia I knew basically nothing about this stunning flower, but I was so impressed by how many uses it has. We took a boat cruise through the lotus lake (where they grow) and got to get up close and personal to these flowers in their natural habitat.

Besides learning lots and lots about the power of lotus we had some free time to explore Cambodia on our own. We decided to go to the market and stock up on woven basket bags! A girl can never have too many 😉

On our last day in Cambodia we got the opportunity to see some historical sights including Angkor Wat, the Jungle Temple (where a lot of Tomb Raider was filmed). We woke up around 4:30 in the morning to watch the sunset over these beautiful temples and it was an experience I will never forget.

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask Seaweed Radiance Facial
The big new launch from fresh is a very welcome addition to their already popular Lotus range and something I was super excited about because it’s a mask! I am always banging on about how much I love Fresh Face Masks (they are THE BEST), so of course I wanted to be one of the first to try their new offering. So the cool thing about this mask is that it’s a 5 minute facial. It aims to combat tired skin and overstressed skin (can I get an amen?).  I found it to be incredibly moisturising, but I was most impressed by how effectively it exfoliates the skin. It’s backed with seaweed, red algae and lotus seeds that gently buff the skin to leave with you with a super smooth canvas.

Apply the mask to the skin and let it sit for around 5 minutes. Add some warm water and gently use your fingertips and rub softly in a circular motion. Rinse it well and voila! You can use it 2-3 times per week and I have a feeling this is going to be one of my favourite morning masks because makeup looks sooo amazing after you use this mask!

Available soon…
