Let’s be honest: All of us want the sort of skin we see in beauty ads. You know – the kind of supple, dewy complexion that looks so naturally radiant, you can almost believe it wasn’t Photoshopped.
And all too often, we’ve dashed out to buy the advertised product in the hope of transplanting just a smidgen of that luminosity onto our own mien, only to be disappointed later.
The fact is, if you want results, you should rely on figures. And we can’t think of a better numbers-backed answer than the new Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum from Fresh (or, as the brand calls it, the “immortal elixir”).
In an in-vivo test conducted by Fresh’s research lab, a whopping 98 per cent of participants reported that their skin felt hydrated after using it, while 97 per cent felt it firmed their skin and 95 per cent said it improved their skin’s elasticity.
On top of that, 95 per cent noticed that their skin looked smoother after applying the serum.
The secret behind it? A potent punch of natural ingredients including black tea ferment (also known as kombucha), black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract and lychee seed extract that work in harmony to inhibit the production of wrinkle-causing free radicals and improve elasticity.
Like all other Fresh products, the Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum is also designed to be mixed and matched with other formulas from Fresh to target specific skin issues even more closely.
Here are three simple yet powerful pairings that will save your skin from some common skin problems.
Problem #1: Sagging and loose skin
Solution: Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum ($123 for 30ml; $161 for 50ml) + Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask ($144)
This duo delivers intense hydration and a fast firming effect that acts as a corset around the skin. Just apply and sleep on it for a visibly more defined and contoured complexion by morning.
Problem #2: Loss of lustre and radiance
Solution: Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask ($144) + Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum ($123 for 30ml; $161 for 50ml)
What you get with this double dose of advanced antioxidants is skin that’s instantly more radiant. The mask’s innovative velvety whipped texture also helps to re-energise the face with a refreshing cooling sensation.
Problem #3: Dehydrated skin
Solution: Rose Face Mask ($95) + Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum ($123 for 30ml; $161 for 50ml)
Fresh’s bestselling Rose Face Mask is packed with rose petals and pure rosewater to deliver a burst of hydration, while the concentrated serum works to smooth out and moisturises skin. The result? Deliciously plumped up skin – right away.
