Hi everyone! Sometimes after a long day, I like to do a “spa night” and do a face mask while I paint my nails and read magazines (and drink wine). My favorite mask is of course the Glamglow, but that is pretty spendy – so I’ve been looking for some drugstore alternatives. The other day at ULTA I saw these masks for $3.99 each and I decided to give them a shot.
The first one I tried was the Freeman Charcoal and Black Sugar Polishing Mask. This mask is supposed to be a exfoliating sugar scrub that purifies the skin. The texture of it is gritty and warms up a little bit on your skin while you rub it in. I left it on for about 8 minutes and then rinsed it off with warm water. It left my skin really soft and gave a good clean feeling. I noticed my pores were diminished and my skin looked radiant. I really liked this one.
The next one I tried (a couple of nights later) was my favorite one out of the two. This one is the Freeman Mint and Lemon Clay Mask. This mask has a smooth, mud – like texture, and is supposed to help control oil and breakouts. Well, I don’t have oily skin or problems with breakouts, but I wanted to try this because of the lemon-mint combination. I applied this to my skin and left it on a little bit longer – about 25 minutes. It felt tingly and smelled really good. This mask left my skin feeling squeaky clean and soft. My skin wasn’t dried out at all after this, and like the other mask, it really cleaned my pores. I really liked this one.
So, if you are looking for a nice drugstore mask to use, you should give these a try. You also get a lot of product for your money.
Do these masks replace my beloved Glamglow? Sadly, no. There is something about that Glamglow. I don’t know what it is, but it’s amazing. Maybe that’s why it is so spendy!
Have you tried these? What is your favorite mask?
Thanks for reading!! xx
