Beauty blogger, Samantha Figueroa of Beauty & The Fig, writes a great review on Fresh’s Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask, available in Houppette.
Like any good beauty aficionado, you’re probably aware that Fresh released its latest face mask – The Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask – part of its Black Tea line, this year. We’re Fresh fanatics and obviously had to give this one a try as soon as we got our hands on it.
The power of black tea lies in its percentage of caffeine and its richness in anti-oxidants that fight free radical damage and thus, aging, and Fresh has infused an entire collection with its benefits. And although the Firming Overnight Mask comes with a pretty high-end price tag, we consider it a worthwhile investment. You’re never too young to combat aging, and we’re getting a head start in this game.
The Firming Overnight Mask’s claim to fame is in it’s ability to achieve a firmer, lifted look by morning, when worn for at least 7 hours overnight, and with improved results over time. Key ingredients include black tea ferment and extract for that free-radical fighting power, belle de nuit extract to soothe and re-balance the skin, peptides to firm the skin, and one of our anti-aging BFFs, hyaluronic acid to maintain moisture and improve skin’s suppleness.
Our first impression of the mask is that, like pretty much any Fresh product, they managed to package pure luxury. The scent is very delicate and, well…fresh. The container holds 3.3 ounces of the decadently rich concoction that, frankly, we want to slather on our faces by the tablespoon. But you only need a little more than a dime-sized amount to cover your entire face, which means the one container should last us quite some time. At first it feels like applying a heavy moisturizer, and while you may expect it to absorb into your skin quickly, you’ll find it sits on the surface for a while, going right to work. Some people comment about product coming off onto their pillows while using this mask, but we didn’t slather it on that heavily and still felt all the benefits. We’ve used it twice and, each time, by morning we noticed a significant improvement in our skin’s texture and elasticity. All while our skin was feeling softer and more bouncy, we simultaneously felt that tightness and firmness that this mask prides itself on achieving. Consider us hooked!
