Freeman Polishing Charcoal + Black Sugar Mask
I absolutely LOVE Ulta. There is the perfect blend of affordable makeup (for those of us on a very tight beauty budget - ME) and brand name makeup (SPLURGE). Plus, with my Ulta rewards and Ultimate Rewards Card, I can save even more money with my reward points. Bless the person who came up with reward points. On my most recent trip to Ulta, I was looking for some affordable semi-permanent hair dye (see future post next time I re-dye my hair). Not being able to resist, I was browsing the (affordable) side of the shop and find the face masks/wash section. I have been drawn in by the face sheets/masks that beauty bloggers have been reviewing and love the way their skin looks post use. I have very oily/dry skin that is incredibly acne prone. I breakout ALL THE TIME. So, I look for face washes that don't dry out my skin, that don't add too much oil to my skin and that help fight blackheads and acne, all without breaking the bank. So when I saw the Freeman Polishing Charcoal + Black Sugar Mask, I went online to look at the reviews right away.
4.5 stars?! Good enough for me! So, I bought this and came home right away to try it.
Ok, well, I ended up meeting a friend at Disney afterward, so after Disney, I tried it. After spending a day wandering around Hollywood Studios in the humidity was the perfect time to try it.
After wetting your face, you apply all over and then wait 5-7 minutes. After that, using warm water, gently exfoliate face and then rinse off. That's it! Super simple and it smells AMAZING! I really like the way it doesn't dry out my face. I have tried other charcoal masks and they severely dry out my skin (looking at you, T zone.) The scrub really makes my skin feel clean, after the sweaty days at Disney parks and full face of makeup. I don't think my skin has ever felt better than after using this scrub.
Overall, I highly recommend this product if you have skin like mine and don't have hours to spend on washing your face!
