Review | Freeman Facial Clay Mask - Avocado & Oatmeal

So yep! I'm back with another review featuring a product that I've used steadily for nearly a year now. I first noticed Freeman products when Michelle Phan showcased one of their masks in her video tutorial. She was using the Cucumber Peel Off Mask but I thought of going for the Facial Clay Mask with Avocado & Oatmeal since it's targeted for oily/combination skin. 



I don't know about you guys but I think Caring Pharmacy offers a lot more variety of Freeman Masks than Guardian and Watsons. However, this Clay Mask in Avocado and Oatmeal is something where you can find easily in these three drugstores. Price varies between RM16 to RM20, so it's better to look up for discount. I bought mine during sale at Watsons for RM16.07. 

So here is what Freeman says about the mask;

"Nourish and purify with one amazing mask. Rich clays dive deep to purge dirt and oils from pores. Nutrient-rich Vitamin E, Avocado and Oatmeal moisturise for lasting skin softness. Skin looks and feels squeaky clean and is soft to the touch. Perfect for normal to combination Skin"


Packaging
One thing for sure, you can easily spot Freeman Masks in the drugstores as they have bright, colourful and attractive packaging. The tube itself is huge and for the amount I paid, it surely great. I'm very satisfied with the flip cap opening as it's so tight and the product inside won't leak out. I also find this kind of packaging is hygienic as I wouldn't need to scoop in my hands in order to get the product. 

Ingredients
This is very unusual for me to forgot taking a photo of its ingredients, lol so I'm just going to type it out here. 

Water, Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, Kaolin, Proylene Glycol, Colloidal Oatmeal, Tocopherol, Avocado Oil, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Polyacrylate, Magnesium Aluminuim Silicate, Methychloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance, Yellow 5 and Blue 1

As you can see, the mask uses 2 types of clays- bentonite and kaolin. Bentonite is a healing clay. It helps to normalise oily skin and reducing the oil that has been clogging pores. Meanwhile, kaolin is no longer a stranger in cosmetic ingredients. You have probably seen it everywhere. Just like Bentonite, Kaolin clay helps in reducing the production of sebum. 

Consistency/Scent
The consistency is thick. Might need some effort squeezing it out from the tube once it dries. To avoid this, make sure you close the tube each time after using. The clay is green in colour, pale green to be specific, which resulted from Yellow 5 and Blue 1 artificial colourings.

The scent is definitely the biggest turn-off for me- I'm not sure if it does smell anything like avocado but it's something that I dislike and find it very nauseating. Macam bau pisang but very powdery kot. Entah. Here's a swatch of it;

Directions of Using
Apply mask to face and neck, avoiding contact with eyes. Let dry and rinse with warm water. Use two times a week or as often as needed.

On the face,  the clay mask spreads out easily and dries after 5-7 minutes. I don't have warm water in the sink because who needs one if you're living in Malaysia. It's warm every time. So I just rinse the mask off using normal temperature water. One thing I just realized when writing this review is the company does not instruct for how long we should leave the mask on but I usually do mine about 15 minutes.


Personal Take
As for the clay mask, I use it every 2 weeks or whenever I feel like I'm breaking out with bumps over my forehead. I like this. It gives me a soft and hydrating feeling to the skin once I rinse it off. I don't experience any breakouts while using it but I can't let the clay mask sitting on top of my face for more than 15 minutes. It gets itchy when it dries. Well, that is technically how I know I should rinse it off from my face.  

I'm pretty pleased, but I have to say that the mask is not a 'miracle in a tube' product, I'm sure you are able to find similar product from other brands. Rating: 3/5. Recommend: Yes, Repurchase: Probably yes, but I would really like to try other face masks. Freeman itself has waaaaay more than just this product. I also heard a lot of good things about the Queen Helene's Mint Julep mask and Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, so maybe I'll give them a go once I finish with this. What are your thoughts?

WHAT?! You have Freeman in your Guardian and Watsons? Well, we don't have it here (-___-). My favorite so far is Himalaya clay mask, it's super affordable, I can get it almost in every supermarket and drugstore and it does the job. I wanted try Queen Helene's as well, I bought one for my boyfriend who has acne prone and oily skin. When it first arrived at my house it opened the tube and it really smells like mint, almost like toothpaste, but I don't mind, and so far he likes it. I'm thinking to order one for myself too :)
