I got a nice sample of this at Sephora. The only things keeping me from purchasing the full size are the price ($110 CDN for 1 ounce) and the weirdly "dill" smell.
This is a nice moisturizer. It is very rich and heavy and, for me, it would be great for the winter months as a night cream. But to be honest, in terms of results, I don't see results any more "impressive" than I get with my newly purchased $10 bottle of Lumene retinol night treatment or good old Eurcerin Q10 face cream and both of these products cost a small fraction of the Black Tea cream and seem to deliver results that are every bit as good (and in the case of the Lumene product, even better!) I wouldn't spend my money on this cream. At $30 to 50, I'd consider it, in spite of the odd smell but not for over $100!

A wonderful moisturizer for my combination skin in the winter months (it would be too heavy in the summer I would think). Absorbs well and has a slight "pickle" smell. I could see how that might be a turn-off for some but not strong enough to bother me. A little expensive for what it is - a basic moisturizer - but it is a good product and a little goes a long way.

I received this as a deluxe sample from Sephora. It was a small 20 gm size that's great for traveling so I took this with me on a 10-day trip for a night-time moisturizer. I suffer from dry skin, but this moisturizer was way too greasy for me. It would not absorb into my skin, and still felt greasy in the morning. My skin did not feel any more moisturized. I gave it 2 lippies b/c it at least did not make my skin break out during that time. Occasionally I will still use it on a really rough dry patch that I can't get rid of, but I've stopped applying it all over my face. I also do not like the smell of the fresh product line. It smells like cucumbers on the verge of going sour...It's a personal thing though i'm sure.

Fresh Black Tea moisturizer cream is very effective for dry-mature skin, can be used as a day or nighttime moisturizer. Could be used alone in the daytime if you have very good skin and like a very dewy look. At first, I didn't care for the smell of this product, which seemed to me like dirt or fresh earth, a very earthy spa type scent, but I quickly got used to it and it didn't bother me after 2-3 uses.

I love this cream! My skin is super dry and I noticed an immediate improvement after the first time I used it. I initially received a free sample from Sephora and was so impressed that I bought the full size within a few days. It does work on reducing tiny lines and wrinkles also. I noticed a difference in my "around the mouth" lines after about two weeks of twice daily applications.

I received this as a Sephora deluxe sample and am not impressed. Smells like dill pickles, which I find weird and unpleasant even though I like pickles. My dry skin usually sucks up moisturizers but this just sat on top and was very greasy. I tried to use under foundation and it was a mess. Also kinda of burned my eyes for a little bit. The only positive was that I have sensitive skin and it didn't cause any reaction so I'll probably finish up the sample as a night creme. I really expected more from this brand since it's so expensive and hyped by Sephora staff.
Update: Wasn't able to finish the sample as it broke me out very badly and was the only change at the time to my skin care. Break out cleared up as soon as I stopped using.

Great for my over 40 skin. I have combination/very sensitive skin. I use this at night and my skin loves it! It seems heavy, but absorbs nicely and leaves skin smooth and soft. Pricey, but highly recommended. (bonus - has a lovely light cucumber scent)

Love this cream. It is one of the few heavy creams that wont break me out. I think this is because they dont use ingredients that are overly irritating to the skin. It hydrates well and I always notice a good glow to my skin after applying it. On my third jar!

During my last visit to Sephora, a lovely SA gave me a sample of this, and praised it to high heaven. Sigh! Not for me. Waaaay too oily. I used it only once, but I know my skin. This is going to break me out in no time, if I continue using it. If you have very dry skin, this is for you. Oily skin gals, stay away.

I really wanted to like this and while it is indeed very moisturising, it gave me pimples. I hardly ever break out but it gave me not the red pussy ones that hurt but whiteheads. I struggle to see a major difference for the price it warrants and I would not purchase or recommend this unless you love the sample. Over time, this becomes less effective, while I loved the sample, after one week of the cream, it made me look worse. Also it makes powder foundation or mineral foundation look very thick and over time, I see it making it crease like cracked clay. I find Dr Brandt products to be much better for the same price range. I have given this brand many chances with many products but I just dont find it to be effective, like most natural brands except L'occitane. I think the very precious cream is a mile ahead of this and is more reasonably priced. The price just doenst give the results, and is too over-hypes rendering me done with this brand.

I wasn't sure about this cream, my skin breaks out if you look at me wrong, but am happy to report I love it. I apply a pea sized amount in the morning after my serum and a little goes a long way. It hydrates but isn't greasy and leaves my skin so soft. I noticed many reviewers don't know much about the ingredients and what they are supposed to do so here's a peek - morniga protects the skin from environmental aggressors, lychee boosts collagen, black tea softens and smooths, and polysaccharides help firm.

I've been on a Fresh skincare kick recently. I'm just not sure what the Black Tea products are supposed to do for me. (I use the perfecting mask and cream).
They're nice, but I don't see a big difference in my skin like using the Creme Ancienne, Mamaku Night Serum, or Appleseed Brightening Essence.
It feels light and wonderfully sinks in. It does moisturize, but again, don't notice a difference if I use it or not.

I do love this product and would buy it again. It is an amazing moisturizer in the winter especially(fine in summer too which is nice) smells wonderful too.
However.. there is no difference in lines or pores etc with this cream. It def is not a treatment ..I don't know how it is an age delay product..some major ingred. are missing for that. I think the price is worth it for me because it is not greasy and def took the dry skin prob away without any breakouts like other thick moisterizing creams that cause breakouts. Was very smooth under makeup too.

I LOVE this stuff. And at $125 per ounce, I should love it- but a little goes a long way. I have been using the black tea cream for about 3 weeks now- I went from a small sample to the full size just because I saw and felt such an immediate difference in my skin. I'm 28 and have had good luck in the skin department until last year when I battled bouts of acne and oil. I've had tons of anxiety about skincare since then. My skin has improved immensely since using all fresh products. But back to the cream. The cream makes my skin feel smooth and (so cliche, I know) fresh. I use it in the evening, after my wash my face, and last night, when I emerged from the bathroom, my husband asked me if I was wearing make up- he said, "Your skin is glowing!" I totally recommend this product!

Total surprise ~ I fully expected to return it after a week. Instead, I finished up the product in 2 months and was impressed enough to plunk down $125 for another jar. Very smooth on application with a satin finish - so different from the balmy/slightly sticky moisturizers I've used for the winter season (ie. Weleda Skin Food, Creme de la Mer, Aquaphor, Clarins HydraQuench) - yet, it keeps my skin hydrated the whole day. The surface of my skin is like glass - not a single ridge or bumpy texture to be felt or seen. Within a month of using this cream, I stopped having to apply primer underneath my foundation and makeup. I love the light cucumber/grapefruit/rosewater scent this has as well. VERDICT: ~It's a definite re-buy, but with the price I'll most likely only splurge on this twice a year at most. The rest of the time, I'll go back to using Weleda Skin Food as my daily moisturizer. ---INGREDIENTS: water * propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate * hydrogenated polyisobutene * glycerin * caprylic/capric/succinic trigylceride * cetearyl isononanoate * pentylene glycol * ethylhexyl palmitate * steareth-21 * cetyl palmitate * hydrogenated coco-glycerides * C10-30 cholesterol/lanosterol esters * ethylhexyl stearate * cetyl alcohol * glyceryl stearate * stearyl alcohol * saccharomyces/xylinum black tea ferment * litchi chinensis seed extract * blackberry leaf extract * moringa pterygosperma seed extract * hexapeptide-10 * oat kernel extract * rosa damascena flower oil * cucumber fruit extract * hippophae rhamnoides oil * blackcurrant seed oil * hydrogenated evening primrose oil * grapeseed oil * sugar maple extract * orange fruit extract * lemon extract * sugar cane extract * adenosine * ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate * retinyl palmitate * rosemary leaf extract * tocopherol * tocopheryl acetate * sodium hyaluronate * palmitic acid * stearic acid * phenoxyethanol * butylene glycol * acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer * dimethicone * caprylic/capric triglyceride * polyacrylamide * tetrasodium EDTA * C13-14 isoparaffin * sodium hydroxide * maltodextrin * silica * silica dimethyl silylate * laureth-7 * titanium dioxide * caprylyl glycol * caramel * hydroxyethylcellulose * disodium phosphate * citric acid * hexylene glycol * sodium citrate * iron oxides * potassium sorbate * propylene glycol * propyl gallate * biotin * citronellol * geraniol * BHT
