Hello there! I thought I’d get back into the swing of blogging by doing something I’ve always wanted to do, which is review some beauty and bath products. I’m a huge fan of pampering myself, so I though I’d take the time to talk about and show off some stuff.
For my first review, I picked up an anti-stress mask made by Freeman.
Freeman makes relatively inexpensive face masks you can find at virtually any drugstore, as well as online. This mask in particular boasts Dead Sea minerals, which have been known to not only do wonders for your skin, but benefit your health as well.
It works like a typical facial mask. You apply to the face and neck area and leave on to dry, then rinse (it suggests only doing this twice a week, or “as needed”). I read some people thought that the color was off-putting, but I actually think the bright aqua-blue is very pretty and kind of comical once you put it on. Not to mention, it smells fabulous, not too strong or stringent. I will say this isn’t a mask where a little goes a long way, I found myself having to do an extra layer to some areas, as it didn’t cover too well the first go around. However, you can get a decent mask packed on.
So, did it work? Well, after it was applied and started to dry I did feel the familiar pull and tingle when a mask is getting into your pores. Honestly, it’s not the most comfortable feeling in the world, but it’s necessary if you want the end results. It took quite a bit of scrubbing to get off, and once it was I pat my face dry and added a moisturizing face cream. Afterward and for the rest of the night, I did notice a distinctly clean and fresh feeling to my face, as well as an added softness.
Overall, I’d give it a 7 out of 10. If you want a cheap and easy face mask with the bonus of Dead Sea minerals, I would give it a try!
