Tightens Skin


Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask
This firming mask does the heavy lifting while you snooze (don’t worry—it absorbs quickly, so it won’t get on your pillowcase). A blend of black tea ferment, black tea extract, blackberry leaf, and lychee seed extract works to fight free radicals (a common cause of wrinkles) and helps plump the skin so it looks and feels bouncier in the morning.
