I was sent 5 different masks ($3.29, $3.19 with Sally Beauty beauty club) to test along with some extras for a giveaway. You can find these masks at Sally Beauty and some at Ulta. All Freeman Beauty Infusion masks —

  • Instantly boost purity, restores balance and clears pores
  • Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and mineral oil
  • NOT tested on animals
  • Dermatologist-Tested

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Revitalizing Sheet Mask with Pomegranate & Peptides

Revitalizing Sheet Mask with Pomegranate & Peptides is the first of the 5 different types of sheet masks I used from Freeman Beauty. With the promise of instantly boosting radiance and increasing resiliency it totally intrigued me. I applied it shortly after getting out of the shower and left it on for 15 minutes. As suggested I patted the serum onto my face to let it become absorbed and add the benefits to my skin. My email buddy can testify that I wrote her mid day and told her that my face felt so soft that I didn’t want to put on makeup after. I just wanted to feel how soft it was. I caved and applied my face before going out for dinner and did notice the radiance.

Hydrating Sheet Mask with Manuka Honey + Collagen

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Hydrating Sheet Mask Manuka Honey + Collagen

Manuka Honey is being used more and more in skincare and it’s always a welcome addition. This Freeman Beauty Sheet Mask is another softening mask with the use of the manuka honey. The skin-plumping collagen helps to improve elasticity and restore smoothness.This mask is great for normal to dry skin. Like the other masks recommendations are to leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then allow your skin to benefit from the extra serum infused into the mask. I used this prior to bed one night and woke up to skin that was so hydrated and plump.

Brightening Sheet Mask with Hibiscus and Vitamin C

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Brightening Sheet Mask Hibiscus + Vitamin C

This masque is recommended for night time use. Here’s what Freeman Beauty Infusion has to say: “Become a modern day sleeping beauty with this concentrated, serum-infused Freeman Beauty Infusion Brightening Hibiscus & Vitamin C Sheet Mask. Boosted with concentrated Vitamin C to help minimize dark spots and correct discoloration. Hibiscus instantly brightens, quenches thirsty skin and improves skin tone. Perfect for all skin types.”

Cleansing Sheet Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics  is the only one of these 5 that isn’t a cotton sheet mask except it really is since it’s a bamboo sheet mask (I wouldn’t have noticed the difference if I wasn’t examining the package). It’s just like the others in the way it applies and the usage.

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Cleansing Sheet Mask Charcoal + Probiotics

This concentrated serum-infused sheet mask instantly clears pores with activated Charcoal that gently draws out oils and toxins without over-drying. Boosted with powerful skin-balancing Probiotics to reveal a fresh, clear complexion. Perfect for all skin types.

Purifying Sheet Mask with Sea Kelp + Probiotics is similar to the Charcoal mask except that it uses Sea Kelp to renew, hydrate, and clarify skin. This mask is particularly good since the probiotics help to prevent breakouts as it balances the skin’s ecosystem.

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Purifying Sheet Mask Sea Kelp + Probiotics

While sheet masks aren’t everyone’s favorite because they can seem messy, they really are a great way to try out a mask without spending a lot of money. When I look at an array of masks in a store I like having the option of spending about $3 to test out a mask to see how my skin reacts. I’m happy to have discovered Freeman Beauty Infusion and I’m sure you would be also.  —  Marcia

It’s a blogger’s job this holiday season to pepper you with products you can buy for others but it’s important to know that you can also buy some treasures for yourself that won’t break the bank.

While you are at Walmart you need to find the MASQUEOLOGY facial masks. These $2.50 masks sold out quickly online although you can ask for an alert to let you know when they’ll be back in stock. It was very hard for me to believe that these are only $2.50. These sheet masks compare to much more expensive ones.

Masque*ology

Masque*ology

The 4 types are Special Care Cream Mask with amazing benefits. This one is great for dry sensitve skin because it moisturizes and hydrates. It’s going to lift and firm skin while it helps diminish the signs of fine lines. The Vita Clarifying Mask is meant for dull tired skin. It’s loaded with vitamins which helps to clarify skin and combats free radicals. My favorite is the Moisturizing Cream Mask. This lovely contains hyaluronic acid and caviar. Ooh la la. The Moisturizing Cream Mask is an excellent hydrator. There’s also Collagen Lifting Cream Mask which is one I need to find more of. This and the Moisturizing mask need to be in the stockings of all the women you know over 40. We can definitely use this revitalization and help in building collagen in our skin.

I’m a big nail polish fan so I’m sending you over to Ulta to find trio of beautiful polishes from PACIFICA. They’ve come out with a set of fall/winter polishes that will make a fabulous gift.

Pacifica Polish trio

Pacifica is the brand for anyone you like that wants to use cruelty-free, vegan polishes and ones that are 7 Free. The three shades in the set are Luxe Interior, Wonderland, and London Tomboy.

Pacifica Winter Trio

Pacifica Winter Trio

Luxe Interior is a beautiful black cream with silver sparkles. With two coats it becomes a textured polish. I also tried it with one coat of a black cream polish and Luxe Interior over it and I lost most of the texture. Both are lovely ways to wear this shade. Wonderland is my favorite of the trio since it’s an off white, not quite cream shade. It has subtle shimmer within that I wish wasn’t quite so subtle. London Tomboy is a dark teal green, not quite a true green since it has a blue undertone. This is a beautiful cream polish. Be sure you apply a base coat since dark shades like this can stain.

Keep your eyes open when shopping at Ulta and Walmart for some gifts you may not have thought of before. All three of these brands will bring a smile to a beautiful face.  —  Marcia

Flora•py sheet masks – better than therapy. Giveaway news too

Florapy Floral Therapy Facial Sheets

Florapy Floral Therapy Facial Sheets

When was the last time you used a mask? I bet it wasn’t recently and I bet you might be regretting that. When Flora•py sent me 4 of their 8 facial therapy masks I was eager to try them out but I had so many others masks that I put them aside and forgot about them. Big mistake that’s been rectified now.

Florapy Floral Therapy Facial Masks

Florapy Floral Therapy Facial Masks

Let me tell you about Flora•py now that I have your attention. No matter what your need, Florapy has a mask for that. Even Skin Tone, Detox, Stress-Relief, Strength+Energy, Anti-Aging, Deep-Hydration, Clear Complexion, and Sweet Dreams are all available for $8 each.

All Florapy masks are infused with essential oils and aromatherapy. They are full face masks that give you a 15 – 20 minute period of total relaxation while working on whatever your skin is demanding of you. I started with the Sunflower Lemon mask for Even Skin Tone because I knew that the fragrance was right for me. This has a lemon aromatherapy and I’m a huge citrus fan. Lemon aromatherapy empowers harmony, synergy and joy while invigorating the senses.

Florapy Sunflower Lemon Even Skin Tone Mask

Florapy Sunflower Lemon Even Skin Tone Mask

The combination of sunflower and lemon bring powerful nutrients to hydrate, soften, nurture, and condition skin. The lemon is a gentle acidic that will help diminish the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. I really hadn’t thought about a mask working to give me an even skin tone before but now I’m sold on it. I think the 5 pack ($38) would do wonders to keep up what the single sheet provided especially since it’s recommended to be used 1 – 3 x per week.

Florapy Blackberry Primrose Deep Hydration Mask

Florapy Blackberry Primrose Deep Hydration Mask

The second mask I used was the Blackberry Primrose Deep Hydration Mask. “Primrose aromatherapy empowers love, confidence, strength and rejuvenation.” Doesn’t that sound lovely?

I chose this one for 2 reasons. Not only did I want the anti-oxidants that I know blackberries are loaded with but I also wanted the hydration this would provide. The primrose flower fights away damaging free radicals, while renewing, protecting and energizing the skin for rapid hydration and repair.

Both masks are enhanced with Recovery Essence 8 – a proprietary blend of vervain flower, grapeseed oil, olive oil, clary sage oil, carrot oil, almond oil, rosehip and vitamin E.

I didn’t tell you the best part. These are all 100% coconut masks that are infused with essential oils and aromatherapy. They feel different than other masks and of course smell different too. The coconut material holds 20x its weight in water and adheres well to your face. You won’t feel sticky with these. Your face will feel cool and you’ll feel like the world has disappeared for about 20 minutes.  —  Marcia
