sandandskyaus - Pink Clay Mask It’s recommended to use 2-3 times a week, but at £40 a pop, I use it once a week. For me that’s enough and gives me the results I’m very happy with. Having always struggled with adult acne (yes I thought it stopped at 18 too) I struggled to find products that kept breakouts at bay for good. I have marvellous skincare for dealing with spots but preventing them was a different story. After using the Sand & Sky mask for about 2 months now, I really haven’t had a major breakout. I’ve had the odd one, the result of too much sugar (wine) and hormonal changes, but nothing I would cry over. I’ve also noticed a reduction in the dreaded oily T-Zone, but it’s definitely not drying ✨

Why I ALWAYS multimask!
As some of my followers may already know, I LOVE my wide range of masks... but sometimes my face gets picky and different parts of my face react very differently to the same products :( After using hundreds of products in my lifetime, I have decided that the best way for my hormonal combination acne to heal when I find a good product is to multimask! Description of my skin: About a year ago I watched a video of Bella Thorne going through her skincare routine and she mentioned having “combination skin where it’s super oily underneath and dry on top”. I had never heard anyone use those words to describe their skin but I knew right away that that was exactly my skin type! When dermatologists told me that I was super oily and gave me products to consistently dry my skin out, I had the worst surface breakouts of my life. When I used products that were made for dry skin, I would get a different type of breakout from the oil-based products. In college, I began taking birth control which essentially stopped my acne as a whole, but made me gain almost 40 pounds and put me at risk of stroke due to the migraines with auras I get every so often, so I needed to stop. The pill was the only product that completely stopped my acne altogether and I couldn’t use it any longer, so I had to resort to dietary restrictions and picking the perfect products for my skin. The photo: In this photo I have a hydrating mask on my forehead, an antioxidant mask on one of my cheeks, and a pore purifying mask on my other cheek. All parts of my face react differently and these are the masks that I have found worked best for these different parts of my face. My forehead is the only part of my face that doesn’t consistently breakout so I just use hydrating products on it. Verdict: If parts of your face don’t react well with a product and other parts love it, then listen to your skin! The reason I don’t use paper masks often is because all of the skin on my face is not the same. Hopefully my experiences will help at least one person on here!

Pleasantly surprised by this money sucker!
Let me just start by saying that I have been looking at this beauty basically since it came out but never actually bought it because of how obnoxiously expensive it is. The only reason I did this month is because ulta was having a big Black Friday sale and I racked up $10 in points, scoring this product for half off! It has a very interesting smell but now that I’ve been using it for a month, I’ve gotten used to it. It’s very thick and creamy so you barely need any to cover your whole face. They suggest you keep it on your face for 5-20 minutes. I like to keep clay masks on longer usually but this one dries in about 5 minutes which is probably why their suggested time is so short. When you take it off, you can immediately see that your skin looks smoother and pores look smaller! This usually means that the product is drying your face so I top it with either my favorite THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil (sorry Hyram I tried to stop for a little and my skin didn’t like it) and CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator which is on the more expensive side but hydrates the CRAP out of my skin and is so worth it. I don’t normally like clay masks because I do have combination skin and it tends to make me breakout more but this one is like a different breed!! Verdict: YES!!!!! 💖💖💖💖 one of the best clay masks I’ve used. Buy it!!!

The best acne treatment mask I’ve ever used!
The best acne treatment mask I’ve ever used!
SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask The Sand & Sky pink clay porefining face mask is hands down the best clay mask that I have ever used. This mask can clear up ANY congestion and acne that you may possibly have, in just a short 10 minute mask session. I have gone through 4 whole jars of this magical mask in about 1.5 years. I will repurchase over and over again because honestly there’s not another clay mask out there that delivers these kind of results. I would recommend this mask for any skin type that is struggling with acne and congestion, just keep in mind that the dry skin types (such as myself) will need to HYDRATE after this one. It doesn’t strip your skin, per-say, but it is a little more drying and tightens your pores giving you a dry feeling afterwards. The main ingredients in this gem are: Australian clay, aloe leaf juice, vitamin e, witch hazel, dehdroacetic acid, lactic acid, and glycerin. It does contain some natural fragrance, which smells very fresh almost cucumbery to me, but it does not irritate the skin. The texture of this mask is a thicker paste, but smoothes onto the skin easily with the cute little included mask brush applicator. The texture starts as a wet clay and dries down within the 10 minutes you have it on. The mask feels very cooling and is one of the more comfortable clay masks that I have used. You can always sprits a face mist or toner to keep it from drying down completely! I think that the jar of product can go a long way and last a decent amount of time with frequent use, because the product spreads so easily and a little goes a long way. The price point is justified in my opinion because the results are THAT good and immediate. I highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with congestion, texture, and breakouts! 5/5 stars

SAND&SKY-Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
The SAND&SKY - Australian Pink
The SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask is marketed as a mask targeting pores, blemishes and oiliness for every skin type. While I think this is a really nice face mask to wear, I can’t say it’s really effective. I’ve used this mostly when I had breakouts and it hasn’t shown any evidence that it speeds up the healing process or reduces the breakout size. It’s different than other clay masks in my opinion because it doesn’t leave your face feeling overly dry and it’s fairly easy to remove. My face feels tight after wearing but still soft. $49 is steep for a mask in my opinion. The mask comes with a brush applicator which I love and use for other masks as well. The brush helps you apply a thin layer, which is all you need. So yes, this does last long but I personally will not repurchase. I haven’t tried a clay mask that really helped with breakouts. If you have a recommendation, let me know below! P.S. this mask has awesome reviews on Sephora, so if you’re really interested in trying.. go for it! Sand & Sky has a clean at Sephora stamp ✔️

Clay mask to diminish acne

This mask is great! The consistency is super smooth and being marketed as a clay mask with exfoliating acids to help shrink pores and improve acne it does just that! It is amazing as a spot treatment for overnight and also has a great smell to it. The jar is a little small but you really don’t need much. It will not dry you out like a lot of clay masks do but it is a little oily so i don’t like to use a mouisturizer after because I feel like the vitamin e in this product does enough for that. When used as a mask leave on until it dries the clay is supposed to improve impurities in the skin. I prefer it as a spot treatment only because I feel like I have seen better results with it than as a mask but I know a lot of people like it as a mask too!

GlamGlow SuperMud Activated Charcoal Treatment Mask This face mask can be used two different ways, it can be used as a full face mask from 1-3 times a week to control oiliness, unclog pores, and reduce acne and blemishes in the skin. It can also be used as a spot treatment to target acne and spots only. It is a grey mask with charcoal pieces in it that allow for a better cleanse. It can be applied on smoothly with your hands or a tool. I have used this product a lot to clear my face of acne and oiliness. I love this product since it works perfectly, with time my skin has been clear of pimples and has become normal rather than oily. I have already recommended this to other people with the same skin problems and they have seen a lot of progress. This product is definitely worth it as it works perfectly as it’s supposed to.

i decided to pick this mask up during the sephora 20% sale because it has amazing reviews on the website. this mask targets pores, blemishes, and oiliness. unlike many clay masks, it is a clay mask that is super light and easy to wash off! i love using this whenever i feel like my pores are clogged, usually 1-2 times a week. it does a really good job at sucking out the gunk from my pores! sometimes, i would even use this as an acne treatment and leave it on for a few hours or even overnight. overall, i really love this mask, because it doesn’t dry out my dry, sensitive skin at all! it also comes with a brush which makes the application super smooth and mess-free. i would highly recommend this mask to anyone who has large pores or blemishes. it’s totally worth the price!

I adore this mask! It’s so good for stressed and swollen skin. Clay is awesome for removing impurities and this does just that for me. This helps me a lot with breakouts and I’ve already repurchased for of these. It’s a savior for hormonal acne and the texture is gorgeous.
