In Love...love it...Also, although this cream does plump up my face with that youthful "bounce," the Fresh Black Tea Mask does it better with those results lasting longer and that has the consistency of a rich cream too, and I prefer to just use that as a night cream/treatment instead, if I had to choose between the two....I'd recommend this cream but took 1star off because I see better firming results from the Algenist Firming Cream that I was using before I started this.

We discovered that it helps bring back luster to dull skin and firm the complexion. The complex found in the Black Tea Collection is so effective because it calls upon the best of what the black tea tradition has to offer, acting as an ‘immortal elixir’ for amazing age-delay results."—Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, Fresh Founders
