fresh black tea age delay

A couple months back I did a post on my ‘Skincare Wish list’ being in desperate need of switching up my skincare game.  (You can check that post out HERE.)  Ever since moving to Florida my skin has been going crazy and I have been experimenting and trying out new products in hopes of finding a holy grail routine that works for my skin.  (For reference, my skin is generally combination, very sensitive, and hates any product with Vitamin C in it.)  Along the way there have some misses, Frank Coffee Scrub anyone?, but there have also been some great finds.  And that’s where Fresh’s Black Tea skincare range comes in.  Ladies, I feel like I have hit the jackpot.  This stuff is unlike anything else I’ve tried and after using the age-delay cream nightly I feel like I wake up with a new face in the morning.  Not the face of Blake Lively, but hey I’m making strides.  My sensitive skin loves this stuff and I feel it brightens, blurs imperfections, and plumps up my skin erasing any little lines that may be cropping up. 

fresh black tea gift set nordstrom
It all started back in January when I was in Nordstrom talking to the saleswoman at the Fresh counter, telling her about my skincare concerns and needs, and asking for her product recommendations.  She gave me a hefty sample of the Fresh Black Tea Age Delay Cream and I instantly fell in love.  The only catch was this sucker was $95.  $95 people!!! I just couldn’t bring myself to drop that kind of cash on a moisturizer, but at the same time I was loving how it made my skin feel and told myself to stop buying so much makeup and maybe invest in some good quality skincare.  Around this time I also tried the Black Tea Age Delay Concentrate for eyes and the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask and fell in love with those too.  And that’s where this killer gift set from Nordstrom came in.  The answer to all my prayers, three full size Fresh Black Tea products for $115.  Now that, I could work with.  So I bit the bullet, purchased the Fresh 'Black Tea' Age Delay Ritual Kit and never looked back.

So what does the set include?
  • Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask (1 oz.):  “A hydrating treatment that immediately reveals softer, firmer, healthier-looking skin. Apply to cleansed and towel-dried skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes then rinse. Use 2-3 times per week.”
  • Black Tea Age Delay Cream (1.6 oz.):  “A face cream with advanced antioxidants that is proven to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines while firming, smoothing and retexturizing the skin. Use daily morning and night.”
  • Black Tea Age Delay Concentrate (0.17 oz.):  “An advanced eye treatment that diminishes and prevents signs of aging while moisturizing and visibly firming the eye area. Apply after cleansing by smoothing onto the eye area morning and night.”  
So a couple quick tips on using these products.  First, I find the Fresh Black Tea Age Delay cream is the star of the show.  If there’s one product you buy from the range invest in this magical cream.  Also, this is 100% a night cream.  This would not work well in the morning and sits horribly under makeup.  Also, I have been loving the instant perfecting mask on days I don’t use the night cream for a quick pick me-up.  This mask would be great to use before a big event or when you feel like your skin needs a refresher.  All three products are chock full of natural ingredients such as black tea ferment, lychee seed extract, polysaccharides, and blackberry leaf extract.  The mask also features jicama root juice and noni fruit juice is infused in the eye concentrate.

All in all, I think the Fresh Black Tea Skincare range is amazing and definitely worth the investment.  I normally wouldn’t spend this much on skincare, but was so impressed with the quality and results I got from these products that I feel they are worth the money.  I hope to continue trying out new skincare products and would love to hear your recommendations in the comments below.  I am currently on the hunt for a great morning moisturizer that works well under makeup, so if you have one you love let me know!!
