Freeman Beauty: Pumpkin Peeling Mask #Review

Tonight I tried a new peeling mask. I've been trying to steer myself away from harsh exfoliants that may feel good, but can also damage the skin. This pumpkin mask from Freeman seemed like a good choice, as Freeman is a very popular brand here in America and even my mom has been using their products forever.

This was a single use envelope, costing just $1.99.
Our fast-acting 7-minute peel has highly active Pumpkin, Papaya & Pineapple enzymes plus Alpha Hydroxy Acids to gently but effectively resurface, rejuvenate, smooth, and brighten. Perfect for all skin types.

When I opened the envelope, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the mask did not only smell like pumpkin, but also of the sweet spices that would be found in a delicious pumpkin pie (like cinnamon).

It even looked like there were little spices in the mask:

The directions said to leave the mask on for 7 minutes, or rise off sooner if there was any discomfort. I glanced in the mirror at the 3 minute mark and saw this:

After immediately washing my face, this is what I was left with:

This mask left my face burnt, and feeling tight, hot, and dry. I cannot and will not recommend this mask to anyone.
