I love a bargain! I don’t mind paying full price for a good quality skincare product but if I can grab it when discounted it’s a result! The supermarket Tesco has a decent range of skincare products. In the middle of clearance items I found a few weeks ago Freeman’s Pre-Party Mask Duo for the budget pleasing price of 67p!
Why did I buy it?
I was thinking a head of a birthday of a friend and possibly putting away as small gifts for Christmas (yes I said Christmas!). I liked the idea of this not just being a mask but a moisturizer too. Although I haven’t used this brand myself, and never been tempted, I picked one up for myself because I would be silly not to for 67p!
What does this mask do?
Freeman’s Pre-Party Mask Duo comes in two parts. One is a mask and the other is a moisturiser. Both are designed to prep the skin, prime the skin ready for the application of make-up and then follow up with hydration. The finishing look to the skin should be a healthy looking blank canvas ready for the evening ahead.
How to use
On clean, dry, skin apply the Vitamin C mask. Pat it in and leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off. Follow on with the collagen moisturizer.
The Vitamin C mask
I didn’t expect the texture and general appearance I saw when I ripped open the first part of this duo’s sachet! The mask was gel in look and texture, with a green tint to it reminding me of aloe vera gel (just not as dark). Floral in fragrance, not too strong and overall quite pleasant.
Placing this on the skin literally was like applying a gel but less of the cooling effect. Following the instructions of patting this into my skin, this made some areas of this appear cream like. The instructions said pat in till it ‘melted’ into the skin. There was no melting. But once I stopped and left it, it went from feeling slightly sticky to more tacky, as if it had almost dried out. Rinsing off was very easy. No residue was left and my skin felt and looked fresh and clean.
The Collagen Moisturizer
It came out of the sachet looking quite thick, glossy and white but it was more fluid when I rubbed it between my fingertips. On the face it took a little time to rub in, but when it did despite it not being thick, my skin felt quite nourished. There was a light fragrance in this but not particularly noticeable what the fragrance was of. My skin afterwards still had that freshness to it. No shine, quite matt but looked actually really good in normal way. This is how I want my face to look all the time!
There was no getting ready to go out after using Freeman’s Pre-Party Mask Duo. I was getting ready for bed! So how my skin would have been after using this and applying make-up I couldn’t tell you (I don’t wear make-up anyway!). But what I would say is my skin looked ready for anything and I can imagine make-up would go on like a dream as it was in great condition.
This mask and moisturizer duo surpassed my expectations! I’ve never used this brand before but happy to use products from them again. Easy to use, provides the face with a pampering treatment and then a functional face cream leaving the skin looking better than before application. If you see this BUY IT! Totally recommended and I’m kicking myself I didn’t buy more at 67p each!
