When you hear that a product is sold out everywhere – you begin to wonder what the big deal is – well in this case the big deal is a little blue pot in a pink box. It’s the Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask.
When it arrived I wasn’t too sure at first but as soon as I opened up the candy pink box and saw the cutest little brush in a it’s own case I love it – totally gorgeous.
The Australian pink clay promises to absorb dirt & impurities; draw out toxins; combat pollution; restore the skin’s natural defence shield; shrinks & refine pores; and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. It draws out the bad stuff – impurities, toxins, pollutants, pigmentation clusters and brightens by regenerating skin cells, stimulating collagen, creating a defence shield and preventing free radical damage.
I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to apply and thought that maybe it would be a bit sludgy or sticky but it applied like a dream. It was a bit like face painting and the clay went on really smoothly and easily and felt so cool on my skin – it felt quite calming. So you need to leave it on for about 10 minutes or until it dries. It felt quite tight by this time but didn’t tingle at all but they say that that would be a normal effect as the active ingredients get to work.
One or two of you have asked me to post a photo of me with the mask on and/or me after I’ve taken the mask off – well I’m sorry to disappoint but that isn’t going to happen – I hesitate to post photos of me even with all my make up on and in a good light!
What I can tell you though is that I managed to take off the mask quite easily with a muslin cloth and some warm water. I did it in the shower for ease but that’s not necessary. What I found afterwards that my skin felt clean and fresh and a close up look showed clear pores too.
I’m looking forward to using it again and I’m told that you can use it 2-3 times a week depending on skin type. More often for oily skin – less for drier skin. It’s cruelty and gluten free too.
The 58ml jar costs £39.90 here and I’ve only just used a tiny amount so I think it will last for a good few applications. And I’m thinking that you’re all going to want to give it a try.
Have you tried this? Or do you have another favourite clay mask? Tell me which you’ve tried in the comments.
