Freeman Multi-Masking Mystery Bag Review – December 2015
The Freeman Multi-Masking Travel Size Mystery Bag contains 30 travel sized facial masks for all skin types. As of writing this review, it is still available in the Freeman shop. (Note: this isn’t a very exciting box on the outside, but I had placed a larger order and this is how the “mystery bag” was packaged inside my larger shipping box. No actual bags were involved.)
My Subscription Addiction purchased this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Mystery Bag: Freeman Multi-Masking Travel Size Mystery Bag
The Cost: $15.99 one-time purchase.
The Products: A mixture of travel-sized facial masks (including clay masks and sheet masks) and scrubs from the Freeman Beauty brands.
Ships to: US and Canada

Acai Purifying Clay Mask Travel Size (6 count) – Value $3
These normally retail for $1.99 but were on sale for 50 cents each when I was writing this review. As a clay mask, it was pretty good. I feel like it helped clear out my pores. It did cause my eyes to sting a little at first, but that wasn’t too bad and it got better as the mask dried.
Apricot Creamy Scrub Travel Size (6 count) – Value $3
I use a lot of facial scrubs so I am happy to get this (I’ve tried it before; it contains walnut shell pieces as the exfoliating particles). It’s best to open it in advance or take scissors in the shower with you because it is a bit difficult to tear open when it is wet. Also, take a binder clip in the shower to close it off because these are definitely good for more than one use. By the way, this one was also on sale for 50 cents but normally retails for $1.99.
Cinnamon & Moroccan Lava Clay Mask Travel Size (6 count) – Value $3
Another sale item! This is probably my favorite Freeman clay mask to date. It doesn’t make my eyes sting at all and it smells like incense. The cinnamon is present in a small enough concentration that it doesn’t irritate my skin. And this is another good one for absorbing oils.
Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Scrub Travel Size (6 count) – Value $3
And yet another sale item. I’ve also tried this before. It is good at exfoliating, but it does contain plastic microbeads (Congress, with overwhelming bipartisan support – something you don’t see too often these days – recently voted to ban microbeads in personal care products by 2017 due to the environmental impact).
Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask (6 count) – Value $3
If you like the idea of sheet masks but don’t want to spend 30 minutes wearing one, this might be for you. These only require about 5 minutes of your time. They’re not as moisturizing as a lot of the Korean sheet masks I have tried, but they do have a lot of good ingredients for (chemical) exfoliating and brightening. Be sure to use sunscreen with this.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $15 for the Freeman Multi-Masking Travel Size Mystery Bag. This is using sale prices, though. If this merchandise was regularly priced, the value would be about $60. (There wasn’t a sale when I bought this. But it took nearly two weeks to arrive.) While the sale is going on, you’d be better off picking and choosing the travel sized products you want from the Freeman site. I do wish there had been a bit more variety – many of these items are available in larger tubes instead of foil packets if you happen to like them.
What do you think of the Freeman Multi-Masking Travel Size Mystery Bag? Did you buy one? Did you receive the same items?
