I’m really excited to be sharing this review because this is the first mask I’ve tried out EVER. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you know that lately skin care masks have been all the rage. Charcoal masks (which I’m dying to try), black sugar masks, cucumber masks, you name it. I’ve even seen a 24k gold mask, which screams bougie and is perfect for yours truly. When I think of a face mask I often think of expensive and luxurious spas where they treat you like a queen and give you these avocado masks, cucumbers for the eyes and mud baths. Well luckily I’ve brought that (not-so) luxurious facial mask to my home! I’ve decided to try Freeman Beauty’s Avocado & Oatmeal clay mask and I grabbed the travel size one for testing reasons, plus I don’t wanna be left with a big tube of this stuff and lots of regrets if the product didn’t work out. Now before I purchased this I have never really heard of a clay mask, but I finally came out from under my own rock and decided to explore the world of beauty masks. The results were quite shocking so keep reading!
So here’s a quick funny story: the night that I decided to wear this mask was so stressful because I didn’t want anyone to come out of their room and scream of terror then accidentally hit me with a baseball bat, because that’s how crazy I looked! I don’t know if I looked that crazy but this was my first mask ever so I just have to get used to it. When I tell you I sprinted to that bathroom to wash this off when it dried, I ran for my dear life. Speaking of when it dried, it felt like it took a thousand years drying. Even when most of it was dry and my face felt like it was gonna crack right then and there, some parts were still wet and I would’ve felt like the amateur that I was if I didn’t let it all dry. I don’t know if I put too much but I’m just lucky that I put the mask in the correct spots. I tried not to put the mask too close to my eye areas or hairline for obvious reasons. On the package it said to apply it too your neck too, which really confused me because I thought it was only for your face. Amateur problems! I chose to just stick with the face and maybe try the mask on my neck with the next application. MAYBE. By the way the package says it has 2-4 applications, but honestly after my first application I don’t think I even have enough for another mask. The texture of the mask was very creamy and it reminded me of a thick face lotion. As for the smell, I got a hint of avocado and maybe a smidge of oatmeal. I wasn’t expecting the mask to smell like I just dumped a bowl of Quaker Oats Oatmeal on my face, but it’s pleasant in some ways. In the ingredients it says it has avocado oil and that made me more enthusiastic about the final result of this mask after washing it off. I’ve heard great things about avocado oil and how it benefits your skin. When I applied it to my face it was cold as I don’t know what but I wasn’t complaining because it felt nice. Overall this mask took about 2-3 minutes to apply and about 10-15 minutes to dry.
Final results: after washing off the mask and drying my face, I almost shrieked at how my face felt. My skin was super soft and all the hidden dirt and dead skin was completely gone. I cannot even remember the last time my face felt that soft . I highly recommend doing face masks every week if you can because the results will be so worth it. You can only get so much dirt off of your face from a cleanser or makeup wipes, but this mask that I used really deep cleaned my face and made my complexion very smooth and silky. I can’t wait to try more masks and other products from Freeman Beauty and I highly recommend you guys do as well!
