Bring out the best in your skin with this gentle daily exfoliating and toning treatment. This multi-tasking blend of natural plant-based ingredients work together to dissolve pore-clogging oil and debris and hydrate the skin to help prep the rest of your skincare products to absorb more effectively.

Skin looks healthy, bouncy and glowy—never tight, dry or stripped. Use Fresh Start before your serums to maximize absorption and let the rest of your skincare routine shine. For all skin types, including sensitive.

Traceable Key Ingredients

Pr

 Prickly Pear PHAs

Naturally-sourced Poly Hydroxy Acids (PHAs) are a water soluble chemical exfoliant that gently exfoliates the skin by working exclusively on the skin’s surface without interacting with deeper portions of the skin. PHAs are also known to be gentler on skin due to their larger molecular size, while still smoothing and brightening skin.

Li

Lime Pearl AHAs

Naturally-sourced AHAs from Australian Caviar Lime Extract, this water-soluble chemical exfoliant works to increase the rate of skin renewal by exfoliating the upper layers of the skin (loosening dead skin cells from the skin’s surface), and by stimulating collagen production.

Al

Aloe Vera

A succulent that features an inner gel composed of 99% water and 1% bioactive ingredients, which together hydrate and soothe the skin. Aloe Vera contains antioxidant vitamins A and E, which work to neutralize oxidative stress; minerals and enzymes that reduce inflammation; and sugar molecules that act as humectants, hydrating and plumping the skin.

Ohhh Ohhhh….. Just not gonna work for me…..

Firstly, I am a Three Ships Beauty SUPER DUPER FAN!! Secondly, I’ve enjoyed trying out all of the different products, and finding a skincare routine that has truly TRANSFORMED my skin!! Like—TOTALLY changed the look, feel and health of my skin, from the inside out! Giving me the confidence I had nearly given up on ever having after attempting to try, aimlessly and numerously, countless skincare products!! Until NOW!! Three Ships Beauty is the real deal!! And I am seeing REAL & sustainable results from the skincare lineup that I am currently using!! SOOOOO… it pains me deeply to have to write this review and not be able to give the newest product a five star review. But because I am a hugely dedicated customer, I knew I owed them, and my fellow skincare sisters, an honest review on how this one product hasn’t worked for me. Having said that—I have seen some great reviews & trust that this product has its benefits for others, just didn’t workout well for me, personally. I have extremely sensitive skin!! And when I say that I have thin skin, it’s not a figure of speech, unfortunately. My skin barrier is very thin, and slow to heal after any irritation (ie. pimple, blister, blocked pores…etc…). Before trying this newest toner—I have been successfully using both the other spray on toners! Using the Awake Toner in the morning, and the Calm Toner in my evening/bedtime skincare routine. It’s been a very effective lineup in achieving, maintaining and improving the health of my skin. Before using my routine—I’d get fever blisters due to my auto immune diseases. Painful buildups of a clear liquid (serebum or cerebrum (sp?! however it’s spelt!!) ). It has a similar effect on the skin barrier as a cystic or inflammatory acne filled bubble. I’d get these quite frequently BEFORE using my now go-to Three Ships Routine. After using this newest exfoliating toner, I started seeing redness after a few days. Then I noticed the skin was drying out and tightening, which is an indication that a painful old “friend” is building its way back into my skin again :(…. I tried using it every other day, and then tried using it without the cotton pad/ball… tried using it every which way I could, but my old skin issues came out like a painful reminder of all the issues that I had since ridden myself of prior to introducing the newest toner! Ladies, I truly wanted to LOVE THIS!! But… alas, it’s not something that my thin skin can tolerate. So, I am going to stop using it, unfortunately. But I haven’t lost hope! Because, I KNOW that once I start back up with what I was doing consistently, with my previous Three Ships Skincare Routine, will eventually bring me back to clearer, healthier, happier skin, again!! That’s how much I trust in and believe in, the products that DO WORK FOR ME!! It’s just going to take a couple weeks to heal up and recover from the painful (and not so pretty to look at…) “owies” (as my granddaughter’s refer to them LOL.., and they definitely are painful!!) BUT my TRUSTED and TRUE Three Ships Skincare Routine WILL heal and restore my skin barrier, bring back a healthy, balanced PH and visibly beautiful, self confident woman!! Thank you, Three Ships Beauty for branching out and creating skincare products for ALL of your current & new customers!! It’s not lost on me how much you truly do care about bringing healthy products into the hands of all of us ladies, with differing yet beautiful skin!! Treating our smin with only the cleanest, finest, purest, healthiest of ingredients! To feed the SKIN of all of us women!! Keep up the great work!!

skin feels softer

I really like this toner. Having a person with dry skin, I am initially quite skeptical that this will work for my skin, but it did! I like how my skin appears noticeably brighter. I have to usr this toner every other day (can’t use it in conservative days..)

Evens skin tone

As someone who doesn’t typically use toners, I liked this one! It helped with general skin brightness and was less abrasive than physical exfoliants.
