More and more western skin care brands are using Asian remedy as new ingredients. Fresh recently launch a new collection “Black Tea”. I purchased the Age Delay Eye Concentrate and Instant Perfecting Mask . Here are my thoughts on these products.
Instant Perfecting Mask
When you first open the bottle you’d think you need to apply a very dense cream, but it turn out to be a very cooling and light weight mask. The mask provides a hydration to the skin, but I would recommend you apply very thick layer to seal the skin better without it quickly drying out (see picture below for reference). The mask also make your skin feel cooling and tickle a little.
TIP: Any time I use any mask I always apply eye cream around my eye first. The reason is that the mask will pull your skin down and most the mask will tell you avoid eye area ! Therefore apply eye cream before the mask to create a barrier so the mask not pull my eye area. After rise the mask off my face still feel tickling I would say this mask is perfect for hot summer day.
Age Delay Eye Concentrate
I used it for few days and I didn’t see any difference. It hydrates the eye area but I didn’t feel any firming. So I feel this is more for preventatives. I know most the skin care ask you to use for 30 days or longer to see a results, but be honest I have tried some skin care products and you can see results with in 3 days. Also, I didn’t smell the Tea scent in both the mask and eye cream which was a disappointment. I wish I can smell the tea scent . I listed all the products from Black tea collection with a brief info from their company website for your reference .
“Tea is the world’s most ancient remedy. It was discovered thousands of years ago in China, whose people cultivated its use as a medicine, as a ritual, as an art form. Tea has a rich history and an even deeper meaning for us because of our Russian heritage, as it is an enormous part of our own culture.” —Lev & Alina, Fresh Founders
