If I were a braver woman, I would have taken a selfie to show you what I looked like wearing my Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel-Away Clay Mask from Freeman this week. Alas, no. Just no.
I found this for a dollar and some change, I believe, at an Ingles Market a few weeks ago and just got around to trying it this week. I was happy to see that camellia sinensis leaf extract was indeed listed as one of the ingredients. When I opened the packet, I squeezed out goo the color of Thousand Island dressing and the consistency of glue. And yes, I smeared it across my face. I have always loved peel-off masks because I like the idea of "peeling off" impurities. (An old friend who was a sales rep for a well-known brand of department-store cosmetics heard me say this once and was horrified because she said I was stripping off a layer of my skin. Whatever.) And after just 10 minutes, I was able to peel off my mask (yes, I still had some skin underneath) and my face felt wonderfully smooth. I'll be buying this mask again!
