Have you heard of Freeman Beauty Facial Masks before? I’m sure you have, but I figured I would ask. Could it be possible that an affordable product on the market can offer awesome results? Could it be true that a product that costs less than $5.00 can give you soft and smooth skin? Hmmm… read on to see what I think.I have used Freeman masks for a couple of years now… though I’ll admit that I really was not a fan prior to now. Many of them that I had bought dried my skin out so terribly that it actually was more damaging on my face then it was beneficial. Of course, now that I know more about my skin and my eczema that I was diagnosed with last year, I now know how to use these products properly. For years, I was told I had oily combination skin so I used products such as these (Freeman Masks) as ways to keep my skin at bay… but little did I know – I had dry skin – hence the eczema. Now that I know better, I have enjoyed using Freeman Masks and they are a part of my skincare routine along with other favorite skincare products.
So – you can expect to see reviews on several of these since I have at least 5 full sized masks and at least 20 little packets to go through… but I decided to write about the one that I have been using the most lately – Avocado & Oatmeal. The mask itself is just a $1.99 for the Travel / Sample Size (0.5 oz) or $3.99 for the full sized tube (6.0 oz). Freeman offers a wide range of products to suit all your skincare needs and this is just one of the products from the Feeling Beautiful line. The consistency of their prices is a breath of fresh air, because you can go to most retailers like Walmart, CVS and Walgreens and find the products at about the same price range at each location. The Travel size has enough product to use about 2-4x in my opinion – but for some, depending on the thickness of the product, you may use it just once. The full size tube offers you many many uses. I use mine every week and half to two weeks and I still have a lot left in my tube, considering I have been using it for at least 2 months.
The products texture is much like other masks you can find on the market today. The mask feels creamy and dries quickly so you will feel the tightening of your skin after it starts to dry. While I haven’t tried Botox, I worked in Plastic Surgery for years and it reminds me of what my patients would describe their face would kind of feel like after getting Botox, but of course… without the pain of the needle – just the tight feeling. I absolutely love that this mask smells pretty good – it doesn’t have a chemical scent, which is awesome. I want to say it smells a little like oatmeal, but at the same time – I’m honestly not sure.
Ingredients listed on the website for this product include:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Kaolin, Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, Propylene Glycol, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Colloidal Oatmeal, Tocopherol, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Montmorillonite, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Polyacrylate (Veegum Ultra), Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), blue 1 (CI 42090).
Packaging for the Full Sized Mask is easy to use and definitely awesome for storing. It is larger than the size you are allowed to travel with, but that’s why the Sample Travel Size packets are so awesome because they are travel friendly. If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to have a zip top for the travel sized packets because I can actually get 3 or more uses out of it depending on my need for the product. Because the travel size is perfect for just that, a zip top will allow me to take one packet with me and it will last my entire trip depending on the length of stay.

As I mentioned earlier, I have eczema, mainly on my face – so I stay clear of many drug store products that I know can be drying to my skin. After using other Freeman Feeling Beautiful Masks, I was very scared to try them again, but I figured I would give it one last try. I’m glad I did because my skin feels soft, smooth and clean after each application. It is my perfect little treatment and spa right at home at a VERY affordable price tag. I love that I can also walk into most drug stores and find the samples, which allow me to purchase different ones to try them out before committing to a larger full size. This Christmas, I have stocked many stockings and baskets with Freeman Mask samples because I do really love them.
Application is very easy and not as messy as most may think. It will apply with little to no effort and washes off very easily as well. Now that I have changed up my skincare routine, I do not get acne or breakouts, so I can’t say how well it will clear it up if you have acne prone skin. But, I can say that it works awesome for a spot treatment as well… just dab a little on your pimple at night and you will notice a significant difference when you wake up the next day. Be sure to remove your makeup prior to using this product as well. Cleanse your skin first. One tip though… be sure to moisturize accordingly after removing your mask to ensure you are putting moisture back into your skin after you have stripped any away. But have a girl’s Spa Day and pamper yourself – I think it’s a great goodie for your skin.
Oh – one more thing… I’ve had to deal with Freeman’s customer service via email and let me just say – Fast response, helpful, polite… I’m very impressed!
