Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal Review

I recently purchased a Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal. I used it today and let me tell you what I think about it.


I paid $3.49 at Shoprite.

It actually smells pretty good. It does not really smell like avocado... I don't know what the smell is but it's not too strong...

The package says " This rich clay mask, with added oatmeal and Vitamin E, draws out excess oils and dirt, purging clogged pores, leaving your skin clean and soft."

The package also says that it "Contains Natural Ingredients". When I read the ingredients, the first thing listed is water and then complicated names are listed. This is not a good sign. I'm not going to type all the ingredients but it does contain oat and avocado oil... and many different types of alcohol.... I never had to read the ingredient's before but I have learned my lesson this time...

I do not know why, but my skin tingled (in a bad way) while waiting for the mask to dry... I do not have sensitive skin... After washing, my skin was clean but kinda dry. My pores were less visible. My skin type is normal so I really don't know why this happened. I'm not blotchy or anything... but I still don't like unknown tingliness on my face....

Will I rebuy? Nope. I probably won't even touch this tube again...


Update on my gmarket haul: I want to say gmarket ships lightning fast! I placed the order on Aug 23. My packaged was shipped to me on Aug 26 and it arrives today but I was not home (*tears*) so I will pick it up on Monday after work. I guess the ridiculous shipping price is really worth it. :D

That face mask sounds kind of worrying, I tend to avoid ones with alcohol in :/
Argh, I hate missing packages and then having to pick them up, what a nightmare!

Freeman stuff never worked for me either. :( And how much is shipping from GMarket? I am way curious since some other bloggers have purchased through here too. Thx!
