Klout Perks- Freeman Feeling Beautiful Masks

I was happy to receive 3 masks to try out from Freeman Beauty & Klout

Image

I wanted to try one out before I started multi-masking ( when you use 2 or even 3 of their masks at once)

How multi-masking works : If you have a oily t-zone , but are dry on your cheeks, neck, and chest. You could use a clay mask on your t-zone & gel mask everywhere else.

Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask – Its a super star for your T-Zone or oily spots that helps pull toxins from the skin.

You keep it on 10-15 minutes until it dries, then wash off with warm water. I liked this mask because it didn’t burn or tingle like some masks. I also liked when I washed it off it didn’t make my skin feel dried out. It also left my skin feeling soft & clean.

Next I tried the #multimask

I used the Avocado & Oatmeal Mask for my T-Zone since its good for that area that tend to be more oily.

Then I tried for the first time Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask which is good for dull or dry patched and your cheeks tend to be more dry.

When I start putting it on a felt a warm sensation, which I liked . It was a little difficult to apply to face . The sugar wasn’t harsh on the skin an left my face smooth & clean.

Cucumber Facial Peel- off Mask
This one is for all over total renewal.

I didn’t really like this one because it was a little messy and really sticky. The consistency was like a really thick sticky gel, which made it a little difficult to spread over my face. It did leave my skin really soft though . I didn’t take a photo with it on me because I look weird lol 🙂 but did get it off on one go

Overall I liked these masks. They left my skin feeling clean, smooth , & soft.
My favorite was the avocado & oatmeal mask it was soothing , not as messy, and didn’t leave my skin dried out.
Next would be the charcoal & black sugar mask. A little weird to apply but I liked that it helped exfoliate but wasn’t harsh on the skin .
Last would be the cucumber mask due to the messy application.
I didn’t check to see how much a tube of these would be but the packets are $1.99 each.

I was given a free product or sample because I’m a klout influencer . I am under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

When I went to pick it up they said there were thousands of entries. Definitely going to put it towards clothes 🙂
Next win , I’ve been trying to join some twitter parties because they have some great prizes . I have tried to do it in the past but it’s kind of confusing. Well one twitter party , you had to RSVP and she was picking 2 random people to wins box of goodies.

Which one is your favorite?

Creamy broccoli white bean soup

I always want to make broccoli soup but it seems like all the recipes have milk or cream.

Well I found this recipe on….you guessed int pinterest > Creamy Broccoli White Bean Soup <

I changed it up a bit , like I always do.

Broccoli

Garlic

Onion

Chicken Stock instead of veggie stock because its what I had on hand ( doubled it up)

2 cans of small white beans

I also sprinkled a bit a cheddar cheese in the middle, more so to add color for this photo haha but still would be tasty.

Definitely adding this one to my favorites.

Its so easy to make and I love that it has few ingredients.

I did have a little mishap while blending I didn’t put the top on and when I hit liquify, the soup shot up and knocked my hand off the lid! lol Only a little mess thank goodness 🙂

Also I got a new festive bowl !
