In our latest Her Campus Survival Kit we received full-size packets of Freeman’s Rejuvenating Cucumber and Pink Salt clay mask. Being a mask junkie, I was immediately excited about this reward. Freeman is a well-known brand in skincare and makes many affordable packet-masks that can be found in every Walgreens, CVS, or Walmart. As many times as I’ve picked up these masks, I had yet to try the Rejuvenating one, and couldn’t wait to see what it could do for my skin.
As stated on the packet, the mask instantly detoxes and clears pores for rejuvenated skin. Made for all skin types, this 10-minute mask is a light blueish grey and very thick, as many clay masks are, and has a light cucumber scent. The packet has enough product for two applications, though I used it on my face and neck. The mask has a grainy texture from the pink salt, but applies evenly. After putting it on, I set my timer for 10 minutes and waited.
Many clay masks are irritating and itchy when they dry. This mask, unfortunately, is no exception. Even at the end of 10 minutes, the mask had yet to dry fully, so I waited another 10 before taking it off. Because this mask is exfoliating, to get the full effect, I washed off the mask in circular motions with warm water.
Post-mask, my skin definitely looked more radiant, and the redness on my nose had gone away. My skin did feel softer, though I did not notice my pores being much clearer than when I had initially put it on. For final thoughts, I would say that this mask is a fairly average clay mask as far as cheaper products go, though it would be a good product to use before makeup to soften and give a nice glow, rather than use it as a clarifying, detox mask.
