Fresh Black Tea Overnight Mask and Eye Concentrate Review

I know the benefits of a cuppa for the soul, but what about the face? You'll no doubt be well aware of Fresh - an American import with some beautiful packaging - because of its best-selling sugar lip treatments. I've not had the pleasure of trying these out for myself since there's no Sephora here (don't even get me started) and it's not the easiest brand to source in the UK, but I was given some of their incredibly popular Black Tea skincare range to try a little while ago and it's time to let you all know how I got on.

I'll start with the most raved about of the two: the Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask* (£69). It's a rich, overnight mask that's not too dissimilar in concept to the Origins Drink Up mask - slap it on, sleep, wake up, see miracles. I definitely think Fresh trumps Origins in terms of texture and smell, however. It's got a really pleasant, fresh (*ahem*) smell, and it sinks into the skin rather than sitting on top like gloop. Even after immediate application, my skin felt smoother and firmer. It contains kombucha, or black tea ferment, that's said to improve radiance and soften and smooths the skin, while Belle de Nuit extract soothes it. One small fingerful of product and my skin is more moisturised and firmer come that early morning alarm.

The Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate* (£68) is another top product. At 21 years old, I'm not exactly the target consumer for anti wrinkle eye creams (although marketing execs will probably disagree with me), but I can still appreciate its luxurious texture and the fact it's non-oily, absorbed quickly, and refreshes the eye area after every 6am wake up. It's a staggering price tag for a pot that sits comfortably in the palm of my hand, yet the amount of product needed to cover both eyes is so minimal that you can hardly see it on the tip of a finger. It shares a similar fresh, floral smell to the overnight mask and contains black tea, blackberry leaf, and lychee seed extract to help improve skin elasticity.

In summary: I'll be rubbing tea on my face as well as drinking it from now on. The smell, texture and packaging of both products get an enormous thumbs up from me, and I'll definitely be recommending them to anyone in search of skin hydration or eye de-puffing.

Have you tried anything from Fresh before? What did you think?
