Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence Review-
Hey lovelies 🙂
I have been using an extra step in my skincare routine, that of a hydrating essence before any serum or moisturiser & so far I have been really pleased with the extra boost. Fresh had launched this very famous kombucha (fermented tea) essence more than a year back but it was always way out of my budget. This birthday though, I decided to cave in & try the smaller size out (with the help of a 15% birthday discount of course!)
What Fresh Says-
A powerhouse antioxidant prep step that packs eight benefits into one bottle, including pollution defence.
The essence also makes skin more luminous, fades fine lines, minimises pores, improves elasticity, smoothes its texture, boosts its healthy tone, and hydrates for 24 hours. The star is kombucha, fermented sweet black tea rich in vitamins and organic acids that’s proven to fight pollution.
Why do you need to? Because pollutants like smoke and smog can accelerate signs of aging (aka cause premature wrinkles). This silky liquid with moisture-locking hyaluronic acid sinks into skin, shielding it from free radicals and leaving a super glowy look.

My take on the Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence-
The packaging is convenient, sleek & very travel friendly owing to the fact that it comes in so many different sizes. It comes in a sturdy frosted plastic bottle with a nozzle mouth & a dark brown cap.
The essence is colorless, a slightly thicker version of water & has a beautiful texture, very light and lovely, which gets instantly absorbed into my skin and preps it up for the next step of hydration 😀 I was wary of any greasy/tacky residue, but it’s so fluid and lightly hydrating that I feel like I have nothing on my skin yet it feels instantly so soft and plump, rejuvenated and glowing 🙂
I have been using this 50 ml bottle for the last 1 month & though 28 GBP for a tiny bottle is insanely pricey, I have hardly gone through 1/5th of it so it is definitely going to last me a long, long time.
Even though an added step in your skincare routine might not be the best news for us (I know it certainly isn’t for me with 9 month old hyperactive baby at home) but it is necessary when you are fighting against ageing. This lovely essence has definitely filled out my fine lines a bit, skin looks plumper, more glowy & feels calmed & soothed after waxing or tweezing.
It has a faint, sweetish fragrance which is hardly discernible & fades away promptly.
Pros of the Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence:
1> Sturdy, leak-proof packaging.
2> Impressive list of ingredients.
3> Fluid, watery, lightweight texture- gets absorbed instantly.
4> No greasy/tacky residue on skin.
5> Hydrates, soothes & plumps up skin instantly filling in the fine lines.
6> Does not aggravate sensitive skin in any way.
7> One small 50 ml bottle will last for months & months.
Cons of the Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence:
So expensive :'(
My Rating: 4.7/5!
Do I recommend the Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence?
Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence is a luxury yet necessary prep step for dehydrated, sensitive skin who need to fight the signs of early ageing, lack of sleep, redness & so on. It takes up very little time but does deliver what it claims. It definitely makes my skin look plumper, rested & healthy.
