Freeman Black sugar & Charcoal polishing Facial Mask
So i wasn't really sure if i wanted to put something this harsh on my face .But seeing as i was already using lemon & sugar home made mask as a part of my skin care routine , i decided to give this a chance.:
Sucrose, Propylene Glycol, Carbon*, Kaolin, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract , Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Maranta Arundinacea Root Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Aleurites Moluccana Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Carbomer, Fragrance (Parfum), Iron Oxides (CI 77491).
It is not a miracle product but if used with caution it could be a godsend in dry winter months when no amount of moisturizing is going to keep the dead flaky skin at bay.It says to apply it like a regular mask , leave for 5 minutes & than massage your face with it fir 2 minutes.Applying it on the skin feels like the skin is heating up (which is the activated charcoal starting to work , i guess).But after massaging and washing the mask off , the skin is left feeling smooth and refreshed.
The activated charcoal is very good at absorbing the sebum from skin and the sugar particles exfoliate and remove dead skin like a pro.But care should be take to massage the product on to the skin VERY VERY carefully & softly (i cant stress this enough) .If you are overzealous , you will probably end up causing more harm than good.
As you can see this tube is about to end so i am fond of this product. I find it to be a decent enough exfoliater , and it can be easily used twice or thrice a week.But as i said before , massage it very lightly over your skin , not for more than 2 minutes & keep wetting your hands while doing it.
I will definitely consider buying this product again.It is easily available in most beauty counters and quite affordable as well.So give it a try if you have dry, oily combo or oily skin.Do tell if it worked for you or not.
Till next time.......
