Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask Review

Shaina Strawberrie -

There has been so much buzz about this product that I had to go get me one! Man! I must tell you, I have no regrets! It's one of these facial products you can ACTUALLY feel working! This is how Freeman Beauty describes their product:

"Pollution…debris…it's a wonder skin can breathe! This unique mask and scrub works double time to detox skin. First, naturally purifying Activated Charcoal helps absorb oil and impurities without over-drying. Then, Black Sugar helps exfoliate away dulling skin cells for softness and clarity. Perfect for all skin types.

Directions: Apply mask to face and neck, avoiding contact with eyes. Leave on for 5 to 7 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Use 2 times a week or as often as needed."

You may ask, "What is Activated Charcoal?" It is basically charcoal that has been heated or otherwise treated to increase its absorptive power. (Thanks Google!) A/C attaches itself to toxins on the skin and it can be described as a 'magnet' that attracts and absorbs oil and dirt. Isnt this amazing??

Black sugar on the other hand gets rid of dead skin cells and cleanses your pores. It also contains glycolic acid that keeps our skin bright and healthy and has anti-aging properties. Dont you worry sensitive skin users! Black sugar is a great for your skin because it is so gentle and less abrasive that your regular skin scrub.

Now think about it. You put these two fantastic power ingredients together and you have the awesome-est face mask of all time!

My Experience

Before I bought this product I had high expectations. Every review I read was about how remarkable it is. I wear makeup on a average 4 days per week, so I have to give my skin some tender care frequently.

Application is pretty simple like every other mask, just that with this one, I found i had to tilt my hear up a bit so that the black sugar pieces didnt fall all over my chest. You honestly feel like you are in a spa once its on!

Ok ok, Im over exaggerating, more like warmth! The activated charcoal starts 'doing it's thang' within a few seconds on your face. No you dont have an allergic reaction, no your face is not going to peel off and NO you are no DYING! Let Mr. A/C work his magic for 7 minutes ok? The sensation doesnt last long though, only for about a minute or two.

Once your time is up, start massaging the product on your skin. The B/C granules melt a bit and the exfoliation process is smooth. Once you dont feel them any more, time to rinse with some warm water.
TRUST ME! You face will feel magical! Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy!

What I love about this mask is that is non-drying and you feel like you have shed and got new rejuvenated skin!

I 100% recommend this product for everybody! Get one for your mom,sister, granny, aunty, dad, the Prime Minister, EVERYBODY should have one!
It has you feeling so good not only on the outside but inside too. Hands down one of my favorite, never let go products!
