Most Helpful Positive Review Leaves skin feeling smooth
I had expected a different texture from this product. I thought it would go on the skin with more opacity (much like their Mint and Lemon Clay Mask), but instead the texture reminds me of a lip scrub. A sugary and slightly runny lip scrub. You really have to work with it if you want to even out the coverage on your face.
As soon as you've laid the mask on your skin, you can feel the mask start working. The warming sensation is definitely a plus. Perhaps it's the activated charcoal pulling out those impurities. Who knows, but it feels great! It says to leave it on for about 5-7 minutes then to gently massage for 1-2 minutes. The first time I used this mask, after a minute of massaging I was like "Okay, I'm over this" but then felt like it was such a waste of the natural exfoliating properties of the sugar in the mask.
So then, I worked out a routine: I put the mask on my face and let it sit there 5-10 minutes before I shower. Once I'm in there, I'll massage my face for a minute to let the sugar crystals exfoliate the nastiness off my face, then I bring it down my neck and onto my body (mostly my arms, chest and back). I mean, the amount of sugar in the mask is not gonna dissolve just on your face alone no matter how much you rub it, so might as well use the remainder on the rest of your skin that may need a good ole scrubbin'. And boy does it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. Definitely a winner.
Tl;dr: messy + black + sugar = clean, soft skin

Shannon from Florence
Ok so I was using Ole Henrickson lemonade scrub and I stopped and started using this because I had it sitting hnder my cabinet for like ever. wow what a difference in my acne. only a few times a week and my skin is smooth. I also sometimes use the apple cedar vinegar scrub and it's al great but I was so surprised by this. Will stock up
Instant bad reaction
Amy from Columbia, MD
I used the charcoal clay mask they had previously with no issues. Ordered this and every time it touched my skin instant redness and burning. I have sensitive skin and this product was not good for it. Aside for the terrible skin reaction, it was messy to put on, hard to remove, I never had a peel effect from it, always had to scrub for removal in the shower.
My go to scrub
Wawa from Portage,Indiana
I use this product once or twice a week to exfoliate. This is my go to scrub for the past 2 years. It has really kept my skin free of major pimples and discoloration since I started using it. Love it!
Hands down favorite mask
Tiff from Texas
I LOVE this mask. I have enjoyed every mask from Freeman that I've tried but this is by far my favorite. My skin always feels SUPER soft afterwards and the exfoliation helps even out my skin tone and gives it a nice glow. The sugar isn't too abrasive. Even my husband likes to do this mask with me and it's so affordable!
LONG TIME LOVER
CynPanda from Portland, OR USA
I actually use this as a daily face scrub and love it. I am very stingy and poor lol so I like to hunt for good, low cost product. I use this, victim C serum (cheap stuff), and a regular face wash and my acne has never been better. If I run out of this stuff I notice a big difference on how my face feels and looks.
i would buy this again
cger from Detroit, mi
Love this product. Just the right grit and removes make up.

this is a great exfoliating scrub!
Laura from Ohio
I tried this years ago on a recommendation from Emily Noel on YouTube and have been in love with this product ever since! I actually use this as an exfoliating step not really as a mask. It leaves my skin feeling so soft!
Peach from Philadelphia
I have extremely sensitive combination skin and this mask/scrub doesn't irritate me at all. I thought I would be red and broken out in rashes the next day after usage but my skin was actually extremely soft and blemish-free. I use 2-3 times a week as a facial mask/scrub and daily as a lip scrub. It's amazing as a lip scrub just be careful not to get in your mouth because it taste nasty!
Nique from Virginia
I have sensitive acne prone skin and this product work great for me! My face seems brighter after use.
Guacky from CA
My face feels super clean after I use this. Just 10 to 15 minutes and you look refreshed.
Not for me
PamN from Near Indy
Freeman's apple cider vinegar mask seems gentle enough that I can scrub my face including around my eyes with no problems. However, this product made my eyes burn - like when you cut an onion - just being on my face and not near my eyes.
clare from New York
I've went through a bottle of this & it lasted me soo long. It became my go to if I ever saw new acne on my face and most times it would be gone by the next day. I just ordered another I love this and you can't beat the price. can be used as a mask or a scrub
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Amanda from United States
This stuff made my skin so soft. It felt very grainy and thick on my face but easy to wipe off. When I woke up in the morning my face was SO SOFT!!!! It's amazing.
It's a must have
Natasha from The Woodlands
I use this stuff everyday. It's a key part of my face care regime.
Good but not good enough
Elijah from Pheonix Arizona
I used this product under many different circumstances. I washed my face before, and applied. I didn't touch my face with any cleanser and applied it on dry, everything. Unfortunately it did not draw out as much as I'd liked, in fact my pores were not effected by it at all, as someone with major black heads I was let down by this product.

Personally I love applying it with my fingers and I feel like that way you get the best results and experience with this product rather than a brush, stick, etc. It really does exfoliate the skin and it leaves it really really smooth. I leave the product on for about 10 minutes and before washing it off I scrub the product into my face in circular motions for 1 minute. Therefore, I would recommend this product and for all the horrible reviews you see on here, I'm pretty sure they have extremely delicate/sensitive skin. (just saying) ; my skin type is normal.
Sophia from The mall
Out of all the masks that freeman made this one is my favorite by far after the ten minutes i scrub my skin with it gently and after i was it of its the softest its ever been !
I'm in love!
Upstate NY Teen from Plattsburgh NY
Used once and was immediately hooked. My face was super soft and I just can't get enough!!
Steph B from Brighton, CO
Used once and I was hooked!!! Doesn't dry out and get hard like clay masks do ( I know they have their benefits but I hate that feeling) and exfoliates amazingly without being abrasive. My skin was so soft and glowing after my first use!
Diva from Norfolk, VA
While I was expecting the color of the mask to be dark and heavier in texture, I believe I gains some good results in using this product.
Worked for a while
KML from Houston Texas
When I first started using this, it worked great! It would make my skin soft and felt very clean. But now (after about 6 months) it doesn't work anymore. It doesn't exfoliate my skin and leaves it feeling grainy and rough. I know there is sugar in there, and even after rinsing it all off, my skin still feels rough and dried out.
Awesome detoxifier without blowing the budget
Chillanvillan from New York
Great mask! Gets all of dirt out of skin and leaves skin feeling soft and with that tight feeling (not overdryed but firming) . I love it and would highly recommend!!
I have used this product for over year
Kayla from New Mexico
I use this product almost daily because of my unique skin. It's the only scrub that I have found that works with my sensitive skin and doesn't leave me feeling overly dry, red, or itchy. I love this product and have been using it for over a year. After I use this, I also use a moisturizer. I highly recommend this scrub!
