I won’t lie to you, I love a good cup of tea before I jump into bed. In fact, drinking tea in bed is a dream I often have but don’t always fullfil, however now I can enjoy a FRESH Black Tea Treatment all over my face to calm my craving regardless!
I’ve been pining over the FRESH aesthetic for some time now. I remember their exciting launch across the pages of John Lewis a bunch of months back, and being in anxious desperation to try something out.
You all know my love of natural ingredients in skincare by now, if you’re regular here. My bothersome skin drinks up nature’s best, and spits out additives and filler products in the form of grueling aggravation and angry acne. I’m finally in a situation where I just know what’s going to give my skin some loving, and once again I was right with my gut instinct about Fresh.
“Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask with advanced antioxidants is a hydrating treatment that reveals smoother, healthier-looking skin while enhancing lustre and immediately softening the complexion. The innovative mask’s velvety whipped texture has a cooling effect to refresh the skin and the senses.”
More than happy to share this with you! I’m 32. To be fair, and this sounds like a brag, I do still look about 15. My mum never really had any wrinkles even in her early 60s, and my dad always looked fresh as a daisy too (my friends used to joke that he was a vampire). The thing is, I don’t want to take any chances when it comes to keeping my skin youthful, bouncy, and smooth, and I also don’t want to sacrifice any moisture to my moderately caffeine infused lifestyle either.
"Cleanse and towel-dry skin. Apply to the face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse. Use 2-3 times per week.."
Honestly, this is the first time I've actually felt a cream consistency like this in a mask. Upon looking in the pot for the first time, I was quite nervous actually. The formula itself looks very opaque, very thick, and I imagined it sitting a little too heavy on my delicate skin. Anything too rich can cause havoc with my pores, which in turn go into overdrive, and produce me a tonne of spots in a panic.
Some kind of magic happens with this mask though, as when you scoop out an amount and begin to massage it around, it almost turns into a "silky film" on your skin, and isn't like a cream mask at all. It's like a butter which immediately melts and sets, but obviously without any grease feel.
Once you're done applying, your hands almost drift over your skin like you've draped a satin veil over your cheeks for a while, and the stuff just doesn't transfer. It hugs your face and feels extremely comfortable.
Once cleansed away, my skin felt incredibly smooth still, and almost "resurfaced". I don't tend to get my hopes up too much with claims of "instant results", however I hold my hands up entirely and say...there were instant results.

I have to be honest with you, I can't say I've used it long enough to pass comment on whether the mask has brought me more supple skin, with long term resurfaced benefits, however I can definitely say that it's improved the short term surface texture of my skin on days where I need the extra help outside of my regular skincare routine, or am preparing for a day or evening of prolonged makeup wear. It honestly provides the perfect skin base.
I can honestly say that the mask is by far one of the most fast acting products in terms of providing softness and that "wow factor" that I've tried so far, and I'm still in a small amount of shock that it was so foolproof and "mess-less" to use!

So FRESH don’t only produce specifically targeted skincare treatments, but they also use their knowledge and skills with gorgeous ingredients to create candles and fragrances too! I’m very eager to try some of their tinted lip care products too, as well as the divine sounding ‘BROWN SUGAR’ (Top notes of Sicilian lemon, tangerine, açaí. Middle notes of sugared magnolia, sheer honeysuckle, peach nectar, and bottom notes of caramel, warm amber, and cypress.) scent, and the “SUGAR LYCHEE” too (Top notes of grapefruit, Italian lemon, lime blossom. Middle notes of lychee, lotus lower, freesia, and bottom notes of sandalwood, tonka bean and amber). Both EDT scents come in a shower gel and candle form too. Delicious!
