How do you take your face mask?
Freeman created a clay mask that promises to pull pore-clogging grime, tone and soothe the skin featuring tea tree oil, lemon and an entire host of other ingredients.
Freeman Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel Away Clay Mask is packaged in a 0.5 fl oz packet, but it also comes in a 6 fl. oz bottle. There is just enough product for one use in the packet. The mask is apricot-toned with a thick, sticky, gel-like texture. The scent is nothing like sweet tea with lemon. It is very strong with floral notes, but it is not overpowering once you apply.
Speaking of application, it is fairly simple. Because of the thick texture, it is a bit of a pain to apply and you are better off applying with your fingertips. Be sure to keep the mask away from your hairline, and we will talk about why a little later. There is not burning, itching or stinging with this mask. As the mask begins to dry my face feels very tight. It took about 10 minutes for the mask to fully dry. Once dry, it has a texture of super smooth skin. It’s time to peel!
I’m clearly a stickler for punishment because I read the instructions and it said keep away from your hairline but guess what? I got some in my hair anyway, making it hard to remove along the hairline area. I peeled as much as I could and removed the rest with a warm washcloth. If you follow the directions, peeling is a breeze.
Overall my skin feels soft, my pore congestion was slightly reduced but nothing significant enough to make me shout from the rooftops. This is a nice mask to use as a self-care treat to yourself, but I can’t say if it really does anything for the skin, since I had one of the little trial packs.
