Freeman Beauty Infusion Cleansing Clay Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics Review

Freeman Beauty Infusion Cleansing Clay Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics ($2.99) is yet another new facial mask that launched in the new Freeman Beauty Infusion Collection. This is available as a full-size for $7.99 or you can get a small packet for $2.99.

I had the full-size in my cart recently and I was so happy that at the last minute I discovered they had try before you buy packets for $2.99 each as I disliked the mask and felt quite happy I only purchased a small envelope for $3 versus being stuck with an entire tube of it. Granted $3 bucks isn’t exactly cheap since the larger size is 4 oz and for $8 bucks versus the smaller envelope that contains about one (if you’re being generous) to two uses. But for me it was worth it because at least I didn’t have yet another jar or tube of something or another hanging out in my beauty closet that wasn’t getting any love.

Here’s some thoughts on the Freeman Beauty Infusion Cleansing Clay Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics formula.

Freeman Beauty Infusion Cleansing Clay Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics apparently is a serum-infuse clay mask. It uses charcoal to draw out oil and dirt to leave skin super cleansed. I liked the idea of perhaps using this once a week just to draw the gunk out of my skin and leaving it looking squeaky clean. I don’t really have huge visible pores (only on my nose) so, I wasn’t sure if this would work for me but I was all up for drying in the hopes it would ease dullness.

It’s a dark gray mask which you can apply all over your face and allow to try for 10 to 20 minutes. The texture is super creamy and it does have a very light fresh scent. I sat around with for about 30 minutes as I applied quite a bit of it so it stayed “wet” for a little over 20 minutes. During the setting time it does dry and tighten every so slightly. It isn’t one of those uncomfortable masks that tightens and cracks. The dry down was comfortable and I didn’t feel like it was sucking moisture from my skin.

I would highly suggest jumping in the shower to remove it. I removed it at my sink and made a big mess. It got everywhere and I was left cleaning up a rather big ring of black around my sink after. It removed easily enough from my vanity and sink but really who wants to spend time washing the entire sink down after masking you know? The removal process isn’t fast as it takes a little time to get this entirely off your face but it does break down easily so you aren’t harshly scrubbing your skin to remove it.

Why didn’t I like it?

Well, it didn’t leave me overly tight after using it although, there was some general dryness after use. But really, most importantly, I didn’t see visible results. My skin didn’t feel cleaner, it didn’t look cleaner, and my dullness was still there. I was actually just hoping for a squeaky clean kind of feel and maybe even see that in my complexion. I divided the mask up into two uses since there is a generous amount inside the envelope. The little pouch didn’t re-seal so placing it in a ziploc baggie will keep it fresh.

Mind you, after two uses it is probably hard to see results but honestly, I wasn’t wowed by the experience and probably wouldn’t repurchase this since it left me a tad bit dry after use.

    I actually find it a bit irritating as it dried. I couldn’t wait to wash it off. I had hoped for it.

      I was good with the dry down. Not tight at all and no irritation but a pain to remove, very messy!

    I wanted to love this one so much. But I found it to tighten a bit too much as it dried. I can forgive this if it works, but really I didn’t see any results. Disappointing because I think the new in-shower one with sea kelp is really awesome. Was hoping for a few winners. But I’ll keep this and try it as a spot mask if I get any blemishes and see if it helps at all.

      No issues with tightening, nothing I couldn’t handle but like you no results. Tried it twice, didn’t really see anything super awesome happen with my complexion! meh!

    They dc’d the probiotics plus sea minerals in-shower mask that I did like. I’ll stick to the Innisfree for clay base. It’s a pretty mean dry down, though. I do realize those two are not the same, but, wtf, might try the little size. My skin and scent preferences are so opposite from yours, that it might be just the thing! Lol.
