Freeman Beauty line has become an overnight favorite of mine. They offer a range of products for skin, foot and hair care. My favorites are the Mint & Lemon Clay Mask and Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask. They have so many skin care products to choose from, and I’ve already picked out my mask for my winter time dry skin.
Right now I’m pretty sure a lot of you like myself are dealing with Oily Skin. As mentioned in my previous post “Preparing for Summer“ clay masks aide in oil control. Also, in my “Kitchen Chronicles: Lemons Edition” post I mentioned using lemons as a toner to control oil.
However, I recently stumbled across the perfect combination and fell in love: Freeman Mint & Lemon Clay Mask. This mask is everything!! As stated on the packaging “This lemony cool clay mask delivers relief from inflammation caused by breakouts. Clays absorb oils to minimize shine and the appearance of large pores. Perfect for breakout prone and oily skin.”
Once I started applying the mask I felt an instant cooling sensation and felt it seeping into my pores (not a bad thing). I let it dry and then rinsed it off with warm water. Personally, my skin felt velvet smooth afterwards. I was very pleased.
After using this mask consistently for a week, I saw a reduced appearance of oil. So if you do choose to try it out keep in mind it won’t happen overnight, but over time you will visibly notice a decrease in the amount of oil production.
From an Esthetician’s point of view oily and combination skin need water- based products and this mask is water-based. (To check if a product is water based check the ingredients on the back, if the first ingredient listed is water, it’s water-based). You want to use cleansing products focused on oily skin. While oily skin can tolerate more stimulation and heavier products than normal to dry skin, you don’t want to overdo it because you can dry out your skin.
This mask also contains peppermint oil which helps soothe and nourish the skin, minimize breakouts, improve the texture of oily skin, and help fade pigmentation. When you find what works for you, STICK TO IT!
In addition to my love of the Mint & Lemon Clay Mask, I’m very fond of the Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask. I use this twice a week to exfoliate. This is a purifying mask used to detoxify the skin, and exfoliate to help absorb oil. It’s recommended for all skin types.
Since I’ve made Freeman Beauty a major part of my skin care regime I’ve been extremely pleased with the results. I highly recommend you all try Freeman Beauty, especially if you have oily skin!
This is a great, inexpensive product.
Freeman Beauty can be purchased at Ulta, your local drugstore, or www.freemanbeauty.com

***DISCLAIMER: I’m not saying this is going to work for everyone. I don’t know your skin allergies or skin types. This has worked for me and I’ve recommended this to clients who deal with oily skin. This is just a suggestion and it’s not going to work overnight. I did feel a difference in my skin immediately, but everyone is different. Like mentioned they have a variety of products for skin care that come in sample packs. Try whatever you feel will suit you in the sample pack before purchasing the large bottle. Have a blessed day! ****
