We love it when our Youtube faves finally come out with their own products. Luckily, the long-awaited launch of Rei Germar and Mae Layug’s collab with Fresh is out, and our other beauty vlogger faves got their hands on it! They definitely spilled the deets on these summer must-haves.
The Sunglow by Fresh line consists of 4 different sun protection products: the Creme Tinted Sunscreen, Sun Mist, Set & Fix Mattifying Sunscreen Powder, and the Fresh Tinted Lipscreen. The whole line is meant to keep you looking radiant while being shielded from the sun’s harsh rays.
Want more details about the whole line? Read more about it here.
Creme Tinted Sunscreen
A fave among the vloggers is the Creme Tinted Sunscreen which is formulated to have SPF 50 PA++++ and comes in three shades: Fair, Medium, and Deep. They say that these three shades were chosen specifically to fit Filipina skin tones.
Raiza Contawi herself particularly loved that a tinted sunscreen finally now has an SPF of 50+++ since it’s pretty rare to find something like that in the local market. Yay for UV protection!
Toni Sia claims however, that no shade is right for her skin, so maybe that’s something to consider for future launches! Kris on the other hand, considers this her favorite among the entire collection as it blends easily, doesn’t leave a white cast, and is SUPER moisturizing.
So what’s the initial verdict on this product? It blends like a dream, moisturizes, but needs more darn shades. Plus points for the airless pump, too!

The Sun Mist is a refreshing spray that you can use for your face and body to help relax, moisturize, and protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun!
One of the best things about the Sun Mist is how much product it dispenses when you spray it on you. In the words of Raf Juane, “ganun siya ka-pino”. It leaves a refreshing feel and smells amazing too!
Meanwhile, Kenny Manalad gave a quick PSA about the product. Since it is a chemical sunscreen, it is not advisable for pregnant, lactating women, or beach goers. According to Kenny, these types of sunscreens tend to cause coral bleaching and can even disrupt hormones. And that’s the tea on that.

Set & Fix Mattifying Sunscreen Powder
The Set & Fix Mattifying Sunscreen Powder is a translucent powder that will make your retouching days a whole lot easier with its oil control powers. Along with the other products in the line, this powder is enriched with Niacinamide, Grapeseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, and SPF 50 PA++++ to ensure shine-free, ultimate protection against UVA and UVB Rays!
Kris Lumagi gave the translucent powder a whirl and was pleasantly surprised at how packed the product was. On the contrary, Toni Sia pointed out that the strong white pigment of the product might be too much for some, so make sure to blend it properly—ideally with a brush!
You can use it throughout the day for easy sunscreen reapplication and retouching.
Fresh Tinted Lipscreen
The Fresh Tinted Lipscreen might be the perfect go-to lip product this summer. Rei and Mae claim that it moisturizes, soothes, and protects your lips, while adding a hint of colour to achieve a plump, glossy look.
They’re available in three yummy shades—Very Berry, Sunkissed, and Sangria—which Rei and Mae have given recommendations for per skin tone! They claim that Very Berry will look best on lighter skin, while Sunkissed and Sangria will be loved by morenas.
Rai Contawi loved that the product was sheer and ideal for everyday use. Although you can use it alone, it also works perfectly as a base for your lipstick!
