Review: Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask

Hi, everyone! I am back today with another face mask review. It is the Freeman Charcoal and Black sugar polishing mask, which is a very affordable brand of masks. This is the third mask of theirs I have tried, and I am overall very pleased with the brand. I love beauty and skincare products, but they can be quite pricey, so I absolutely love when I can find a good product for an even better price! I purchased mine from WalMart at around four dollars. The main ingredients in the mask are activated charcoal, sugar, and coconut extract.  I was excited because I had never used a charcoal ask before. The mask claims to exfoliate and detoxify your skin. It also says on the Freeman website that it is good for all skin types, which is great to hear. The directions say to apply the mask to a clean face, leave it on for 5-7 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water. When you squeeze the mask out of the tube, it is a very thick and gritty feeling paste that is black. It can be a little challenging to get the mask spread evenly onto your face because it begins to crumble and fall apart from the black sugar. I noticed that after I applied the mask to my face, my face started to get warm from the activated charcoal. This shouldn’t be a problem if you follow the directions, and leave the mask on for the suggested time length. After rinsing the mask off, the warm feeling goes away. After using this mask my face looks fresh and also feels extremely soft and smooth, which I love. Another thing I noticed was that the soft feeling it gives my skin lasts quite a while compared to other exfoliates I have used. I would recommend this mask to anyone who wants a mask that exfoliates the skin really well and leaves their skin feeling soft and refreshed. I will definitely be repurchasing!

*The cap on the bottle can become hard to shut because of the black sugar getting into the cap. To shut it after using, I typically use a little force to hit the cap down on my counter and it will then close properly.
