Paper masks all day, every day!

Went to Walmart to kill some time & I noticed that Freeman Beauty had a bunch of new paper masks! They’re well known for their clay masks, peel-off masks, & scrubs, so it’s nice to see that they’ve branched out to paper masks. They’re each $1.37 and probably the cheapest paper masks you can get out there, I think… Correct me if I’m wrong. I’ve only tried the rose facial brightening one before & I think I like it! There were no adverse effects, so that’s a good sign. As far as brightening, I didn’t notice anything but I did only use it once. I don’t think any mask would show its benefits right away. I’ll write the description of each mask so you can get a feel for what each one is supposed to do.

Freeman Beauty masks

Blue agave facial hydrating paper mask: serum-enriched paper facial mask contains soothing blue agave to soften and dehydrate. Ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid and allantoin help give skin a refreshed look and feel for a smoother finish. Perfect for dry skin.

Rose facial brightening paper mask: serum-infused paper facial mask with rose extract illuminates dull skin. White tea and licorice help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin. Reveal a smoother surface with lactic and glycolic fruit acids. Perfect for dull skin.

Star fruit facial purifying paper mask: this serum-infused paper facial mask with star fruit helps calm skin stressed by flare-UPS. Lavender and niacinamide help balance oil production. Tea tree soothes breakout-stressed skin. Perfect for combination to oily skin. (The one I’m most excited to try!)

And, because I’ve been wanting to try this but never could find it until now, I picked up the Charcoal & Black Sugar facial polishing mask/scrubDescription: “Pollution…debris.. It’s a wonder skin can breathe! This unique mask and scrub works double time to detox skin. First, naturally purifying activated charcoal helps absorb oil and impurities without over-drying. Then, black sugar helps exfoliate away dulling skin cells for softness and clarity. Perfect for all skin types.”

Quick First Impression: Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

Finally got my hands on the new Clean & Clear Hydrating Gel Moisturizer! I’ve been on a hunt for this and it ended up being at the Walgreen’s near my house the whole time. I checked the Clean & Clear section before, but this was part of a new display… which was hidden! So if you’ve been looking for this or the cleanser, walk around the skincare/beauty/sunscreen section, and look for a tiny display!

Anyways, on to the first impression. I really like it! I love gel moisturizers; I’m currently using the green tea moisturizer from Proactiv, but I’m almost out. The Clean & Clear moisturizer retails for $6.99 at Walgreen’s and is very light, blends into the skin very easily, & doesn’t leave my skin feeling heavy or greasy at all. My skin doesn’t feel like it has moisturizer on, but it feels moisturized… if that makes sense. And my face ends up feeling pretty soft/smooth. It has a very strong cucumber fruity scent, but I don’t mind it. The scent might be a turn-off for others, especially if your skin is sensitive to fragrance! Overall, I’m excited to find a gel moisturizer at the drugstore (I don’t know of other brands.. Let me know if there are others!).

If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think of it! I’m curious to see what others think of it :]
