Fact is the benefits of green tea don’t stop after you’ve finished that cup! Today, beauty brands are infusing tea in all its varieties—green tea, black, white, you name it—into their skin care product formulations. The result? Antioxidant-rich goodness your skin is thirsting for. Below, we’re sharing five skin care products formulated with tea to help you reap the beauty benefits of tea time!

In addition to kombucha, this anti-aging formula is formulated with vitamin E, mineral pearl pigments, and Vichy Thermal Spa Water to help shield the skin against environmental aggressors, conceal imperfections with a radiant glow, and provide moisture. To top it all off, broad-spectrum SPF 25 protects the skin from UV damage. We told you it’s good!
