Freeman's Feeling Beautiful Facial Clay Masks

My family has recently purchased to clay facial masks from Freeman (at Wal-Mart) and I really wanted to talk about this because one of my goals is to replicate them into a healthier version. 

Both of these masks are made with Kaolin Clay and I have found they are great at smoothing the texture of the skin. Because of these masks, I have really been obsessed with kaolin clay (I just purchased a facial cleanser with it from Lush, so I'll let you know how that works out soon). These products are also full of essential oils to benefit your skin. Obviously, because there are two products here, the oils will be different because the purposes of the masks are different.

Unfortunately, both of these masks list multiple parabens on their ingredients list. This is the primary version as to why I want to make my own. 

The first mask, the Avocado & Oatmeal mask, is very soothing and it smells great, very spa-like. This is great for inflamed and irritated skin. The second mask is the Mint & Lemon mask. This one is smoothing due to the clay, but it does awesome at brightening the skin. I'm serious, my skin looks amazing after rinsing this mask away.

So, I would recommend using these products because masks really are great (although I would definitely use a fresh mask, if it is possible) but just use caution because, while they contain many beneficial ingredients, they also contain a few bad ones as well. 

Keep an eye out for an update to this one after I get some clay ordered, so I can make my own masks and have a recipe for you to try as well!

Please remember that I did purchase both of these products. Actually, my mom purchased the Mint & Lemon mask, and I've just stolen it. :) But anyways, I am not affiliated with this company at all and am writing this some-what review of my own free will.
