You know I’m a sucker for a good deal. I’m even more of a sucker when it’s bright green, made with avocado (most likely not 100%- but oh well), and permanently resides at Wal-Mart.
The gobbledy gook I’m speaking of is Freeman’s Avocado Oatmeal mask. It comes in those trial looking sized packets, but I often use it twice or even three times after.
Anything that’s $1 is fair game to me, even if it may not be totally enriched with 100% natural ingredients.
So you know my skin wages war on myself daily. I often feel like I’ve encountered a Palestinian resistance when I wake up in the morning. Doctors say it’s “hormones”, I say it’s because we don’t have world peace.
In the end, I still always have to look at this face and present this face to people. I have been self conscious for life in regards to my image, so this adds about 1,000% more stress.
Onto a temporary solution…
You know I’ve tried a bajillion gimmicks for skin care all with not much luck. (Although I will say my aloe vera gel is making a drastic improvement in duration of acne and scars)
I’m always searching and yearning for clear skin. It’s become a complete obsession. You see, once you’ve had clear skin for most of your life and then all of a sudden you’re plagued with pimples, you feel like Freaky Friday, except on all days that end in “y” and minus LiLo being your starring opposite. (I DO NOT want her skin.)
Anyway, let’s get to the goods…
I applied this generously to my face the other day. I wasn’t thrilled with how it felt on. (To be honest, it felt like I smeared icing on my face.) It was a dense sort of feeling.
But…the after results are always appreciated!
On a serious note: keep in mind, the oatmeal wasn’t able to be felt, nor did it really smell like oatmeal or avocado. Do either of those really smell though? Heck, I don’t even care, as long as my skin gets a good deal out of it.
Despite the wishy-washy paragraphs regarding Freeman’s, I give this stuff an “A” for “after effects”. Pimples are noticeably smaller, face is cleaner, brighter, and softer.
Don’t waste your money on fountain of youth infomercial gimmicks. Try one of these if your in a bind or go to the grocery store and concoct your own! 😉
