Skin-type: Combination and acne-prone
Freeman is one brand I love when it comes to face masks. They are so fancy and have something or the other for all the skin needs. I have tried so many face masks from them and this is the last one from the stash. I am not a big fan of peel-off masks, but since it was Freeman I thought of giving it a go!
Price: $4.29/Rs 300 for 175 ml

My Experience with Freeman Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel-Away Clay Mask:
Packaging: The Freeman Mask like the other masks from Freeman comes in a huge tube packaging. I love how they have used different bright colours for different masks. This one comes in a chrome yellow packaging which is inverted. It has a flip cap which works conveniently. The tube is huge but can be easily carried around during travels. It has some nice details written over it with lemons over it. This does not contain parabens as well. The price is super decent as the quantity is too good for the price.
Consistency, smell and feel on the skin: The mask is peachy in colour with some scent. The smell is very pleasant and relaxing at the same time. The consistency of the mask is super thick and heavy like other peel off masks. It glides smoothly on my skin but takes a good time to cover my entire face and the quantity that gets used up at once is huge too. I need to be careful while applying it because it tends to stick to my hair. It feels very soothing and relaxing on my face as it imparts a cooling feel. It stays put on my face and does not drip at any point.
Results: I get confused at times whether to apply a thin or a thick layer. A thin layer does not pull off nicely and a thick layer takes a lot of time to dry! I try to apply an even layer and keep it undisturbed for 15-20 minutes. It does not dry in 5-10 minutes like they claim. It does not irritate my skin or cause itchiness. If I apply an even layer, then it peels off quickly but a little unevenness takes forever. It left my skin smooth and fresh. It removes the impurities which are not too stubborn and mattifies my skin as well like claimed. It takes away all the sebum. But that is it. It does not do anything more for my skin. My skin looks as it is. So I would call it a relaxing or a pampering treat rather than something that will make changes on my skin.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Freeman Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel-Away Clay Mask?
No I wouldn’t! If I have to recommend one mask from Freeman, then my absolute all-time favourite is the Black Sugar & Charcoal Polishing Mask. It works better than anything in this world!
