FREEMAN BEAUTY

The Feeling Beautiful™ line make products with fresh botanicals that feel and smell good on the skin. They are always looking for the best new natural ingredients for their innovative products that will have the best impact on your skin, raising the bar for skincare goods. "Feeling Beautiful™ believes beautiful skin is worth celebrating!"

Feeling Beautiful Rejuvenating Cucumber + Pink Salt Clay Mask

This mask is great for all skin types! The cucumber extract will soothe and calm your skin while the pink Himalayan salt will detox and exfoliate it. The result? Clear and glowing skin that feels hydrated.

How to Use:

Clean and dry your face then apply the mask all over your face and neck, avoiding your eyes. Once 7-10 minutes have passed or the mask has dried, wash it off with warm water and rinse. Massaging your skin gently as you wash the mask off will promote exfoliation. You can use this mask twice a week or as often as you need.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Manuka Honey + Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask + Cleanser

The honey in this mask will nourish your skin and the tea tree oil will purify it by clearing pores and controlling oil. This mask is perfect for oily skin types that are prone to breakouts. 

How to Use:

You can use this mask daily as a cleanser, or just as a mask. If you are using it as a mask, clean and dry your face before you apply the mask to your face and neck, avoiding your eyes. Once you've left it on for 3-5 minutes (no more than 10), rinse the mask off with warm water.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Detoxifying Charcoal + Black Sugar Mud Mask

The minerals in this mask will nourish your skin and make it healthier; the charcoal zaps away toxins and oils without drying out your skin and the black sugar keeps your skin hydrated and smooths out fine lines or rough patches. This mask is perfect for normal or combination skin types.

How to Use:

Clean your face with warm water to open up the pores, then spread the mask over your face evenly, avoiding the eyes and being careful around your mouth and nose. Once you've had the mask on for 5-1 minutes, rinse it off and pat your skin dry. You can use this mask twice a week or as often as you need.

STERIPOD

Steripod makes clip on toothbrush protectors, no batteries or cables required, with active vapors that fit on any manual or electric toothbrush and cleans and freshens them for up to three months! By clipping the pod to your brush head, you protect it from airborne contaminants and cross-contamination from other toothbrushes, which is extra important to stay healthy during flu season and finals.

Thymol, the ingredient found in mouthwash, is the same ingredient that Steripod uses in their pods! It releases active vapors that make your toothbrush safe to store in the pod between uses. The pod is designed for optimal air circulation so your toothbrush can dry natually, which is important because drier brushes have lower risk of contamination. 

    Steripods are available in a range of colors so you can always tell which toothbrush is yours, plus its small size makes it perfect for travel! It was developed by doctors and independently tested, and is now available around the country at stores including Target, Walmart and Bed Bath & Beyond as well as online via Amazon or GetSteripod.com.

    A two-pack ensures six months of toothbrush protection and costs $5.99. A family pack with eight pods, which you could share with your roommates or dorm mates, is $19.99 and includes free shipping at GetSteripod.com. If you sign up on GetSteripod.com you can get a reminder text or email to update your Steripod!
