As much as I hate to admit it, I’m a total sucker for celebrity-approved products. I’m not sure what exactly feeds the obsession — perhaps it’s a mix of wanting to use only the very best in beauty and fashion and also getting a serious case of FOMO in realizing there’s a product out there that my fictitious celebrity BFFs love (hi, Emma Watson!). Regardless of what it is that makes my eyes glisten a little extra at the mention of something being “celeb loved,” I recognize that it’s one of my very real — and admittedly guilty — shopping pleasures.
Naturally, when I interviewed Ashley Tisdale earlier this fall to chat about her new Target collection, Being Frenshe, I knew the actress would have some seriously great product recommendations up her sleeve — she did play the fashion and beauty icon Sharpay Evans, after all. Not even 20 minutes after our call ended, I wound up rather predictably at Target, smelling all of the soothing and aromatic products in her new line and immediately adding both the Being Frenshe Renewing Gel Body Wash ($11) and Being Frenshe Soothing and Hydrating Body Serum Stick ($17) to my shopping basket. The body wash in particular is an item that Tisdale admitted to “loving” during our call.
Both of these body products have proven to be much more than just elements in my daily shower routine — they’ve also become self-care staples in my household. Ahead, read my honest review of how these Being Frenshe body products have elevated my mornings and even helped my day-to-day mood.
What I Like About These Being Frenshe Body Products
While both of these body products are available to shop in several different scents, which all smell delicious, I found that I really love the Solar Fleur and Cashmere Vanilla scents best. With the Being Frenshe Renewing Body Wash specifically, I appreciate how hydrating and versatile the formula is. The solution feels incredibly light on my skin, unlike some of the other, denser body washes I’ve tried in the past. And when I want to enjoy an extra-nourishing shower or bath (both of which are perfect for this body gel), I can easily squeeze the gel wash onto my shower scrunchie and run it under a bit of warm water, and the solution quickly formulates into a foamy, bubbly concoction that leaves my skin feeling smoother and more revived. It’s become a staple in my morning routine, and it helps me start my day off on a better and noticeably sweeter-smelling note.
The Soothing and Hydrating Body Serum Stick, meanwhile, acts as somewhat of a body relaxer. The product is formulated with ingredients like magnesium, squalane, sea-water extract, and essential oils, all of which work to provide targeted relief to areas on the body that feel tense, as well as increased hydration to dry spots of skin. The product smells divine and feels even better when I rub it on a focused area of my body. I also appreciate the tool’s compact design, which allows me to easily fit it in my purse and take it practically anywhere. I love rubbing the cooling stick on my neck after a long day or just keeping it handy in my bag for when my body starts to tense up on a long flight or a crammed car ride.
More than anything else, I appreciate that with both of these products — and all of the products in the Being Frenshe collection — the items are designed to improve both your daily cleansing routine and your mood. As detailed on Target’s website, Being Frenshe’s products are infused with a “mood boosting scent technology” that relies on aromatherapy to leave users with an enhanced sense of well-being. Now, when I’m working through my morning routine, I’m squeezing in a bit of self-care, too!
What’s Worth Noting About These Being Frenshe Body Products
The biggest factor to note is that while the Being Frenshe collection is made up of the same scent categories, the actual aromas can differ on a product-by-product basis. For example, I love the Cashmere Vanilla scent in the candle, soothing body stick, and hand lotion, but I found that this scent in the body-wash product smells differently. I’ve also found this to be true with other aromas like Solar Fleur and Citrus Amber. If you have a particular scent that you like, my recommendation is to smell some of these products in person before purchasing the entire set collection online, as many reviewers have also noted that the strength of each scent can vary depending on the body product.
Who Are These Being Frenshe Body Products Best For?
These two products are perfect for anyone who values having quality essentials incorporated into their morning or nighttime routines without having to spend a lot of money. The majority of the products in Target’s Being Frenshe collection are under $20, so they’re a feasible way to upgrade your shower, bath, or day-to-day wellness rituals in a way that feels accessible and even beneficial to your overall mood.
Where Are the Being Frenshe Body Wash and Soothing Body Serum Stick Available?
The Being Frenshe Renewing Shower Gel Soap and Hydrating Body Serum Stick are both available to shop exclusively at Target.
- Both of these products are certified clean at Target, and the body wash is free of parabens and sulfates.
- The Being Frenshe collection is broken down into a wide variety of scents that caters to the specific mood you’re hoping to create, ranging from a lavender-infused “Unwind & Rest” category to a vanilla-scented “Soothe & Comfort” collection and so many others. These two items are available to shop in all of the different scents, so you can find the aroma that’s best suited to you.
- Besides being clean, the product packaging is also fairly sustainable, too — both products are recyclable and made up of 50 percent recycled plastic.
