The FRÉ Effect: Kirby Toribio

Ilana Hart June 30, 2021

Every month we explore how FRÉ has transformed the skin of one of our ambassadors

About me:I’m Kirby! I’m originally from California, but I am married to a college football coach so we are usually living wherever football takes us. I am a momma to two little girls, ages 4 & 2. I enjoy spending my days with my girls and running my online fitness coaching business. I am a former athlete (played volleyball in college) so I’ve always been active.


My skin challenges

I’ve had acne prone skin for as long as I can remember. My skin is very oily and prone to breakouts. I also got melasma (a type of chloasma, also known as the “mask of pregnancy”) when I was pregnant, and the dark patches never went away.

In 2020, after having my second baby, my hormones went crazy. I experienced painful cystic acne, postpartum depression, and more. I ended up being diagnosed with PCOS—an incurable hormonal condition with painful cystic acne as one of the main symptoms. Since I am active, a friend recommended FRÉ, so I decided to give it a try. I had already tried everything under the sun for my skin, and I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try one more thing.

My skin today

I fell in love with FRÉ immediately! My skin still isn’t perfect, because hormones are sometimes tricky, but my skin has improved so much. 

Aside from making changes to my skincare routine, I also focusedon going back to the basics with nourishing foods, exercise, and plenty of water daily. I also started syncing my workouts with my menstrual cycle for hormone balance, and I am working with a Naturopath to manage my PCOS with natural remedies. 

Tackling my skin issues holistically with diet, exercise and lifestyle have helped from the inside out, and using FRÉ from the outside in, has been the key for me!

As a mom of two little ones, running a business, and being a coach’s wife, life is crazy, hectic and stressful at times, but my skincare routine has been something I look forward to every morning and evening. It’s almost like a mini spa getaway, a moment to relax, unwind and take care of myself.

My daily routine

Morning:

  1. I wake up and use PURIFY ME.
  2. I apply a Peter Tomas Roth Salycilic acid serum for acne control
  3. Then I use the REVIVE ME serum.
  4.  If I am not going outside much I’ll just do makeup on top (which has some spf), or I’ll also use PROTECT ME or GLOW ME if I’ll be in the sun.

Post-workout:

  • I use CLEANSE ME to wash my face.

Evening:

  1. I wash with CLEANSE ME to remove any makeup from the day
  2. Sometimes I double cleanse with a benzoyl peroxide cleanser (Dr. Sam Ellis recommended for cystic hormonal acne)
  3. Or, I use DETOX ME 1-3x per week. 
  4. I finish my routine with RECOVER ME.

Favorite FRÉ

DETOX ME is my favorite for sure. It’s the best mask I’ve ever used for acne. I love how it soothes and also exfoliates, and the smell is incredible.
