Toning is definitely one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine, and it’s something I’m willing to invest in for the right product. I had heard great things about the Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence so I picked up a bottle as part of the Sephora VIB sale and have been putting it to the test ever since. First impressions call this one a winner…
This product is a little different from toners I’ve used in the past. Rather than applying it to a cotton pad, it’s recommended that you use your fingers to sweep it across your clean face. It’s likely because the ingredients to this product are so highly concentrated that why would you waste any absorbing into a cotton pad.
Kombucha is the real powerhouse here – the fermented black tea protects your skin with antioxidants while enhancing luminosity, softening the look of fine lines and replenishing 24-hour moisture. It also claims to refine pores and improve skin elasticity and texture. While I can’t vouch for all of the claims yet, I will say that my skin has been loving this new step. It’s the perfect prep for the rest of my skincare, helping my skin feel hydrated and soft, making it the perfect canvas for applying my makeup.
I’m not surprised I love this product so much, it’s hard for Fresh to do any wrong in my eyes. This does have a hefty price tag, but if you have the means to splurge I would definitely recommend. A+ Fresh – keep up the great work!
