Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask

My long time partner in crime - Edan Kencayd - convinced me to visit the Fresh boutique located at North Park Mall in North Dallas.  I've known about the brand since it was introduced and have used the hair care line.  Never the skin care or make-up.

Actually while I understand and value great skin products I've been a fan of the Karin Herzog line for the past five years.  I've had great results from the oxygen infused products.

As far as make-up, I tend to cherry pick from some of my favorite lines have long time favorites and lean towards the less-is-more principle.

So why was I going to the Fresh boutique?  Edan had met the manager at a recent fashion event who invited her to come by and check out the North Park location.  She told Edan to bring a guest, which turned out to be me.

Edan challenged me to open my mind to a different skin care line since I tend to get focused on just one brand.  Truth be told, she's right.  Between you and me, I was suspicious that the trip was just a way for the fresh consultants to hold me captive while they sold me tons of products I didn't want or need.  I secretly vowed to be leery of everything they tried to sell me.

Abery Knight Offered Expertise With Zero Pressure

Imagine my surprise when my Fresh consultant, Abery Knight, didn't try to sell me anything.  Not only did he listen intently when I explained my skin care needs, he applied a range of products which felt amazing.  I was very impressed when he applied the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask.  It felt amazing and continued to lightly tingle on my skin.

I love the spicy aroma.  After it was rinsed off the mask I was amazed how much my skin felt like velvet.  Abery  encouraged me to touch my face with my fingertips.  Wow. So soft.

He explained the mask provided an intense hydrating treatment and instantly makes skin more supple, softer and definitely younger looking.  I could definitely confirm it did that for my skin, and more.

The velvety whipped white mask contains radiance-boosting black tea, restorative lychee seed extract, softening and purifying sake and smoothing hyaluronic spheres.

Abery told me it's recommended the mask be left on for 5-8 minutes, but it can actually be left on for longer if desired.

Cleanse and towel-dry skin.  Apply Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask.  Allow the mask to remain on the skin for 6-8 minutes or longer, if you prefer.  Abery told me I could leave the mask on even for a few hours while I blogged.

When it's time to remove it, rinse it well, pat your skin dry with a clean towel and then apply your favorite moisturizes, eye cream and of course any of your products with SPF if you plan on going out into the sun.

Note: Avoid applying the mask to the eye area.


This skin perfecting formula was scientifically proven to have a significant moisturizing effect 6 hours after the mask is rinsed from the skin surface! Additionally, it was tested by a consumer-testing panel under dermatological control.

Yes, you guessed it, I invested in the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask and I'm planning on using it religiously for the next few weeks to see how it works long term.  I promise to blog about my experiences with the Black Tea Mask and the other yummy scented candles and fragrances I purchased.

I'll let you know how I like my new Fresh products as I use them.  If you live in the Dallas area and want to try out this amazing mask or other Fresh products, stop by the Fresh Boutique in North Park Mall and ask for Abery.  I'm sure he would love to give you a demonstration.

The mask has a suggested retail of $85.00 but some participating boutiques offer a punch system where you can be rewarded for repeat visits with a $50 gift card.  How cool is that?
