Fresh Black Tea Face Masks


I came across Fresh when I heard about their legendary Sugar Lip Treatments in an interview on Into the Gloss. The Lip Balm addict that I am, I of course did a bit of research and found out that these Lip Balms are indeed the truth and were very well thought of within the beauty community. Needless to say I managed to get my hands on them and did a review last month. Fresh was created by Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg who use natural ingredients to create their products. Their journey started in 1991 when they opened an apothecary store in Boston and since then they have gone from strength to strength. After a visit to their store in Marylebone I was introduced to the Fresh Black Tea Face Masks in the form of Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask and Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask which contain advanced antioxidant that helps to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals. The Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask is an intensely moisturising product that works together with your skin's natural nighttime recovery process to achieve a lifted, firmer look by morning. I am not one to dabble in overnight treatments; any night time product that I use is washed out before I go to bed but I was intrigued to try this out. It contains black tea ferment, black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract, and lychee seed extract. There is also Belle de Nuit extract that helps to soothe and rebalance your skin, peptides to help firm your skin and visibly defy the signs of gravity as well as hyaluronic acid to help attract and maintain moisture to enhance suppleness.

First of all lets start with the texture of this mask which is oh so creamy without being too greasy and rich without being too heavy. I just love the way it feels on my skin. Once applied it is quickly absorbed into my skin and leaves it looking dewy - there is no over residue so no need to worry about ruin your precious pillows. The next morning when you wash it off, it turns to a creamy foam that once rinsed off leaves your face feeling soft like butter. This mask is soft enough to use nightly.

Now the Black Tea Instant Firming Perfecting Mask is a hydrating treatment that immediately reveals softer, firmer, healthier-looking skin; it also has an immediate cooling effect to refresh your skin and the senses. This mask also has a super dooper gorgeous texture that is velvety whipped. It contains Black tea ferment, lychee seed extract, polysaccharides and jicama root juice. I followed the instructions on how to use this by washing my face before, drying it, applying the mask and leaving it on for five to 10 minutes before rinsing. It is recommended that you use this mask two to three times per week.

I have been suffering from lack lustre skin these days and the odd break out due to not having the time to indulge in my usual beauty regime so this product has been perfect for me. It is easy to use and apply due to the creamy texture and feels very light on the skin. After I washed it off it left my skin feeling really radiant and soft. I have been using these two products for a month and the results have been great. These products do what it says on the fancy jars and they are a very welcome addition to my bathroom shelfie. If you like your luxury skincare with natural ingredients then this is for you.

Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask and Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask are priced at £69.00 each.
