Review: Freeman Chocolate & Strawberry Facial Clay Mask

As you can see, this facial mask has gotten quite a bit of love from me. Back in May when I went to visit my parents in New York, my mom found this at a Pathmark and grabbed it for me. It took me a while to finally get around to using but since then I've had a few masks and I'm in love with this.


Admittedly, I don't usually see results with masks but I do them out of routine and general maintenance since I somewhat subscribe to notion that over time it's actually doing something. Whether it is or is it not doing anything remains to be seen as I've never stopped long enough to see what would happen. 

TL;DR: I do a facial mask once every week. I leave it on for around 20 minutes to half an hour and then I wash it off. I pat down my skin and follow up with a toner.

This particular mask smells amazing as it really does smell like strawberries and chocolate. I've never really had much success with chocolate masks in the past but this particular one amazes me. I'm not sure if it's because I spend the entire time dreaming of chocolate covered strawberries and realize that I cannot have it but I face feels rejuvenated thereafter. I actually feel as though my skin looks younger (please note that I said "feel" rather than "see" because the latter has been harder to determine).

The long of the short is that it's a great mask for my combination skin. It makes my skin feel rejuvenated and therefore always seems to give me the impression that it created a glow. The only drawback I can think of about it (aside from dreaming about desserts the entire time I have it on) is availability. I have not really seen this line or any of the other masks in it out here on the West Coast. It could be that I'm not trying hard enough but at least on the East Coast it seemed to be available in every drugstore. Nonetheless, it can still be purchased online.




Product: Freeman Chocolate & Strawberry Facial Clay Mask
Price: ~$4
Stars: ★★★★★
Would Recommend? Yes!
Takeaway: I love this mask and maybe I'm biased because it smells like chocolate and strawberries. I will say that for my combination skin, it makes it feel rejuvenated which is always a plus and definitely worth the price.

  1. I've seen the Freeman masks in drugstores and Walmart. I think Walmart carries a large selection of them too.

    1. Sadly Walmarts (at least fully stocked ones) are far and few in between. Which is sad since growing up Freeman was a bit of a staple for me. The bright side is that I'm actually exposed to different types of masks now!
