My Experience with Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream:
With me approaching my mid 20s, I have been extensively trying out new products in the anti-ageing skin care section. I have heard tons about the brand “Fresh” which is sold at Sephora. I have tried their “Rose” range, but this is my first time trying something from their “Black Tea” range.
Packaging: I do not like the tub packaging, which not only exposes the product to air, it’s unhygienic too.
Texture: This cream has a whipped, rich, creamy consistency. If you turn the tub upside down, the cream will not slide out and that’s how thick it is! It is not too dense and feels like a hybrid between a gel and a cream.

Feel on skin and Results: It spreads easily into the skin and you need just the tiniest bit per application. This cream feels super greasy upon application and does not get completely absorbed into the skin no matter how little you use. I feel like it sits on the skin for a long time, making it difficult to use makeup on top if you are using this during day time. It does make a good night cream due to its super rich hydrating texture.

I feel this cream is best suited for those with dry to very dry skin. I have normal to dry skin and even then I don’t like how greasy and heavy it feels on my skin. If I drag my fingers onto my face, I get a greasy residue on them. It is very hydrating and gets rid of my dry patches in one night and makes my skin feel soft and supple, but I also feel it clogs my pores. I have seen some break outs on my skin if I use this every night, so I use it only as an intensive hydrating overnight treatment.
It does leave some shine on your skin post application. My skin feels soft, supple and hydrated after use, but the benefits cease there. I have not seen any reduction in my fine lines or improvement in the texture of my skin.

Fragrance: This cream does smell very herbal. It is not overpowering but it is not my favorite scent.

Overall, I will not recommend this product. I don’t like the heavy greasy texture even though I have dry skin. I don’t like how it does not get absorbed into my skin and sits on the top, clogging pores and breaking my skin out. This product is a bit no-no for oily skin and at this price, it’s definitely a skip!
Pros of Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream:
- Makes my skin soft and supple.
- Works as an overnight intensive hydrating treatment.
Cons of Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream:
- Very greasy texture.
- Does not get absorbed into the skin.
- Feels heavy.
- Clogs pores, breaks out my skin.
- Not for oily skin.
- I did not see any reduction in my fine lines.
- Does not firm up the skin.
