Freeman has a new collection of Feeling Beautiful Facial Paper Masks available one of which I tried a few weeks ago in the the Beautiful Rose Brightening formula.
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask ($1.99) contains rose extract and a brightening Vitamin C that aids dull skin to look brighter. It also includes Lactic and Glycolic alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate and reveal smoother skin with White Tea and Licorice antioxidants help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin.
Considering I have drier skin this sounded like the perfect mask for me!
Freeman is an great source of skincare products (particularly facial masks) that are excellent, inexpensive picks that produce great results. Some of my own favorites include the brilliant Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask which is a cheaper dupe of MAC’s own Volcanic Ash Mask.
I haven’t had a ton of success with the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Sheet Masks as of yet..I tried the Blue Agave which worked ok and also the Starfruit formula but that was a bit of a miss as it irritated my skin a bit. It’s highly unusual for anything to irritate me as my skin isn’t really sensitive in the least however, Freeman Feeling Beautiful Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask also caused a bit of chaos when I tried it!
They really do mean paper mask….this is an unusual fiber they used to create the mask that’s thinner than I’m used to from Asian masks. It also has a slightly scratchy feel and isn’t as saturated as Asian Sheet Masks are.
I will say at under $2 this is a fantastic budget pick….! Freeman can easily corner the drugstore market here but just needs to improve on the formulas and fibers used to create the mask!
You can place the mask over your face for 10 to 20 minutes. It has cut outs for your eyes, mouth, and a slight slit for your nose. It has a wet feel and adheres easily to skin.
After wearing it for a few minutes I started to feel a little tingle but continued on for 20 minutes. After removing and pressing the essence into my skin by laying my palms against my face I felt an odd tickling sensation. This turned into an itchy feel quickly…it felt like I had some sort of allergic reaction to the mask and broke into an itchy rash feeling. Thankfully my skin didn’t break out or get red but it did itch for several minutes after wearing the mask.
Freeman has the potential to create some good masks here but the formulas need work…! They aren’t giving me the results I get from Asian Sheet Masks and the odd allergic reactions that keep popping up for me are apparently shared by many after I read a few reviews.
If you do try it just be careful! Especially sensitive skin types.
These are available in drugstores now!
