I bought a 15ml sachet of Freeman Beauty Mint & Lemon Clay Mask to try it out before committing to a large tube, as I’d made the mistake of buying a tube before and was disappointed by the peel-off mask inside!
I like to decant the 15ml sachet into a small pot with a screw top lid before using it for the first time and I apply my clay masks with an old, flat foundation brush that I’ve repurposed specifically for this, as I find the foundation brush allows me to get a nice, thin, even layer that dries in 10-15 minutes. Using the little screw top tub means that I can just dip my brush into the mask and save the rest for next time.
This kaolin clay based mask is suitable for breakout prone and oily skin. It’s a pale green colour with a thick paste-like consistency and a peppermint scent. The kaolin clay helps to absorb excess oil, minimising shine and disguising the appearance of large pores, while the menthol provides a short-lived cooling sensation that’s supposed to help reduce skin inflammation caused by breakouts.
I applied the mask to my face and neck (after cleansing and exfoliating), making sure to avoid the skin around my eyes and mouth and let the clay dry completely before rinsing it off with warm water.
This is one of the better clay-based masks that I’ve used and I’d definitely recommend it if you have breakout prone or oily skin. I got 4 masks out of the sachet by using a foundation brush to apply it.
