MASKNE BE GONE
Times are weird and having to wear an occlusive mask on your face all the time can be difficult for some because it can lead to breakouts. These are my go-to for breakouts in general, but for maskne especially. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask has been my favorite clay mask for a long time because of how effective it is. It really does get into your pores and gets all the sweat, dirt, and acne causing bacteria out. It has a super creamy formula that spreads easily. Another great thing is that this mask dries down quick and is so easy to wipe off, unlike other clay masks where you have to scrub. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator is another cult fave that is loved for good reason. This stuff works y’all. I like to use this before the clay mask!!! The BHA is salicylic acid which gets down into the pores and helps clear out any acne causing agent like bacteria, sweat, or acne. The texture of this is different. It is a liquid but when applied it is almost oily, so I always let it absorb before moving on to any other step. These two are great products for anyone with acne. If you have maskne, I suggest you give these a shot! #cheriepartner
Purifying mask battle
I love a good mud/clay mask. Here’s my review of a few I’ve got in rotation at the moment. AHAVA - Purifying Mud Mask After floating in the Dead Sea on my trip to Israel and the amazing effect it had on my skin, I had high hopes for this mask. However, it’s doesn’t really have any of the same super powers and for the price I’d hoped to have baby soft skin after use. The directions say to leave the mask only for 2 mins. I’ve tried all different lengths of times and it doesn’t really change the outcome of using the product. In saying that it is a nice mask but I’ve used much better. I’ll finish my tube but won’t be repurchasing this one. DR ROEBUCK'S - ULURU When I first put this mask on my skin, it did start to burn/tingle a little but I pushed through and about 2 minutes later it was gone. If you put a thick layer on, it will take some time to dry down. Overall I like this mask, when I removed it my skin wasn’t tight and sucked if all moisture but looked clear and happy. Also I’d read reviews about this mask staining towels, I use cream/beige face towels to remove the product and it washed up fine in the machine. So don’t be too worried about that. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask This instagram cult fave entered my life after a online lockdown shopping whim and it’s didn’t disappoint. It’ll leave your skin feeling lovely and smooth. However, it’s a pretty new mask to me and I found myself disappointed at the size of the jar for the price of the product. A few things to expect when using this product. Like a lot of masks with active ingredients, there is an initial tingling feeling which quickly subsided. The mask dries down very quickly. When I took my picture I was already at that awkward stage of masks when you can’t really smile without cracking it. I love how it gets down onto my pores straight away. If your skin is like mine then you’ll see little holes where your big pores are as it dries.

skincare from around the world!
My skin type: combination, sensitive, acne prone My skin concerns: hyperpigmentation, rosacea SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment + Australia based beauty brand! + a wash off mask that is both chemical and physical exfoliant + for use, you’re supposed to gently buff it into the skin, and then leave on for ten minutes & then rinse off. If you have sensitive skin, they suggest not buffing into the skin but just gently patting it on and then washing off. + I use this twice a month, it’s a little strong for me. The clay is a bit drying and doesn’t work well for my skin type. + very abrasive even when patted on, hard to rinse off as well. + won this in a giveaway but can be bought on their site + $42.90, a little steep for what it is. SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream + Brazil based! + the best body lotion & maybe the only one I’ll use forever haha + smells like caramel and vanilla and a bit nutty as well + sinks in so freaking fast! Best for when you’re in a rush and stays moisturizing all day. + very large tub and lasts a while even with continuous use, I use it every day after I shower! + purchased from Sephora but can be bought on their site + $45, pricey for a lotion but it’s def worth the experience SNP - Prep Cicaronic Toning Essence + Korea based! + love love love this toner, I will apply with a cotton pad (PM) or just my fingers (AM) most days, I would say I use this 8x a week. + very mild formula, mostly water I think haha + helps heal my moisture barrier and good for my combo skin! + very soothing, calms redness easily! Cica is truly magical. + gifted by the brand but can be purchased on their site + scent is a little medicinal, but doesn’t bother me. + $15.99 and the bottle is huge. seiso JBEAUTY - Fuwafuwa Foaming Cleanser + Japan based! + probably the only foaming cleanser I own that doesn’t strip my skin or break me out. + ph balanced with rice and coconut + a bit clarifying + I use this 3x a week at night! + very gentle and very very light foam, super cleansing but doesn’t make me feel squeaky clean + smells nice and light, almost no fragrance. + gifted by the brand but can be purchased on their site + $38, huge bottle so it lasts a while as well.
Pink Clay Exfoliant
This is the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfecting Exfoliating Treatment. It is meant to help remove dead skin from the face.💕 I have combination skin and for me, this is great. I use this after cleansing and will gently rub it around then let it sit for a bit because clay gently removes impurities from the skin and this brand KNOWS pink clay!! The texture of this is thick with small particles that are dark in color within it. I would say there are just enough if not a little less than needed in terms of those for helping to exfoliate the skin. I really enjoy this but wouldn’t say it’s a holy grail product like their pink clay mask. However it is a great exfoliant and a great brand. I’ll definitely finish this bottle! 🌸 Four stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment

3 products for the glowiest skin of your life!
You guys! I’m a huge fan of no makeup days, but of course I still want to look glowy and smooth even if I’m not wearing any makeup! Here’s how I fake AMAZING glowy skin, with products that are actually amazing for me too! (Top pic: before, bottom pic: after) 1. After washing my face, I love to use the SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask to really bring out that glow in my skin. I leave it on for about 10 minutes as I’m making my breakfast in the mornings, and then wash it off! I can immediately feel that my skin is bouncier and just looks more plump, and I can usually see a subtle glow in my cheeks. This has a super cool texture like jelly, but smoothes onto the face really nicely without any clumps. It has no real discernible scent to me. 2. Then, after my toner, I go in with the BANILA CO - Dear Hydration Intense Essence and the name is so accurate. This product adds so much hydration to my skin- and hydrated skin is glowy skin! So I use about two pumps of this all over my face and neck, and gently rub it into my skin. It’s super cooling too so it feels absolutely amazing to wake me up in the mornings. This has a really watery texture and feels like a gel. 3. Finally, after I’ve applied a moisturizer, I follow with these BEEKMAN 1802 - Milk Drops + CBD High & Dry Facial Oil milk drops - they literally smell so divine! It’s such a faint smell but it’s so comforting and feels so relaxing on my skin. If I have extra time in the morning, I’ll use a jade roller to actually massage this oil into my skin, but if not, I use three fingers to gently rub this oil in circular motions until it’s absorbed. If I’m using this oil at night, I usually pat it onto my face and don’t rub it in. But in the mornings, I like for it to absorb fully before i continue! This has a super lightweight texture. #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
Ingredient Intro: Kaolin
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne prone. My skin concerns mainly revolve around acne and preventing breakouts when I can. ✨Today, I want to talk about Kaolin which has proven to be one of my favorite ingredients for acne! This ingredient is a clay that acts as a gentle cleanser. It absorbs impurities and extra oils without irritating skin and all skin types can use it. It is an ingredient that has been used in skincare for centuries to prevent problems before they begin. 💕My favorite product with this ingredient is the Sand & Sky Pink Clay Mask! This mask works wonders to calm down my existing breakouts and clean my skin of impurities to prevent future ones. I found out about this ingredient through them as they use it a bit in their skincare line, including in their Super Bounce Mask which is amazing for hydration. ☀️I double cleanse my face and then apply this product either all over my face or use it more as a spot treatment. I leave it on for 10 minutes, gently remove with warm water and then go on with my normal skincare routine. I generally use this at night and it’s AMAZING.

so i've been unemployed since the lockdowns started so i currently have very minimal skincare products. i was using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and the SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Dreamy Glow Drops along with the CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin and the bbliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer every day, and The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week. i have since run out of the niacinimide serum and the sand and sky's serum, and i have started using the BHA AHA peeling solution twice a week for ten minutes to help speed up my skins regeneration cycle since my skin started purging. i started using all of these products a week or two before quarantine and my skin looked so good. it hadn't been as clear as it was since like... middle school. i think my skin is finally purging from the peeling solution, ive been using it on and off for about 3 months and continuously using it for about 2-3, and i don't have the money to buy anything to help with my skin. if anyone can offer some cheap products or any advice to help, that would be very much appreciated !! ALSO i blocked out my eyes on the purging pics because i looked so stupid lol
Sand & Sky- My Favorite💕
In this post I want to talk about Sand & Sky and how they’ve helped my acne-prone combo skin. THE BRAND 💕This brand is an Australian skincare brand founded by Emily and Sarah Hamilton. It is based on clean and effective formulas. They use Australian botanical ingredients. They are also cruelty free and a lot of their products use glass and even come with little tools like brushes to use their products. They tend to focus in pink clay which is a detox ingredient that absorbs impurities and combats pollution. They also more recently introduced their Emu Apple line which is a strong antioxidant which protects skin from free radicals and boosts Vitamin C production. WHY I LOVE THEM 💕I love them for all of the reasons above but also because these products really help my skin a LOT. The pink clay mask saves my face every time I use it and their new Enzyme Powder Polish is the gentlest exfoliant I’ve ever found that pairs beautifully if you get peeling from retinol products. They also share real results from people in their marketing. One time I shared my love of them on Instagram and they let me be part of their testing for a new launch! It was awesome. They wanted real results from me and honest feedback and that’s what I gave them but of course I loved the product because they create thoughtful and effective skincare. MY FAVORITE PRODUCT 💕My favorite product from this brand is the Pink Clay Mask. This helps me so much with painful acne and increases healing time. Pink clay removes impurities from the skin and this one is no exception. I’ve tried dupes of this like Gen Clay and none compare. This is a HUGE win anytime I have breakouts. ✨Swipe for Emu Apple Mask Glow! Have you tried them yet?

Exfoliating Sensitive Skin 101☀️
I have combination skin that is very sensitive and acne-prone so I need to be very careful when I exfoliate that my physical exfoliants aren’t too harsh and my chemical ones aren’t too strong. ☀️Physical exfoliants contain a rougher material like sugar or grains and when used against skin, you remove dead skin cells and reveal newer skin. Some can be too harsh and the Apricot Scrub by St Ives is an example of that. Some are so harsh they actually leave tiny cuts in the skin, leaving it prone and exposed! There are some that I like such as the Acure Blueberry Scrub and I find that is gentle enough to work for me on occasion. I only use a physical exfoliant maybe once a week and twice a week at most. It’s important to not over-exfoliate and when I do use a physical one, I prefer ones that are very gentle. One that I love is the Sand & Sky Enzyme Powder Polish which is my current favorite physical exfoliant. It’s so gentle and the ingredients are amazing for brightening and removing impurities. ☀️Chemical exfoliants are acids that get rid of dead skin that come in various concentrations. These include AHA, BHA and PHA acids. With regular usage, skin can feel smoother and look more even. It can also help with clogged pores! I love Farmacy’s Honeymoon Glow for this personally but I’ve also heard good things about the PHAT Glow Facial by Olehenrikson! The important thing is to listen to your skin and what it needs that day! Exfoliating doesn’t need to be done constantly if your skin is too sensitive for that. I’ll do it about two times a week and tend to alternate between physical and chemical exfoliants. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Enzyme Powder Polish
Products That Make Me Glow! ☀️
I have sensitive combination skin so finding products that make me glow can be tough but I have found gentle products that work for me! Glowing isn’t just about exfoliation either. Vitamin C is brightening for skin so that helps with glow too! Here are some of my favorites: 1. Honeymoon Glow by Farmacy ✨ Key Ingredients- AHA, flower acids and honey ✨ Honeymoon Glow is an nighttime resurfacing serum that for me gets rid of breakouts and leaves me glowing the next morning. It tingles a bit when first applied but that quickly stops. I couldn’t go without this one and if I didn’t already have a back-up, I’d be repurchasing with the current Sephora sale! ✨ I like to use acids like this with a stronger nightly moisturizer like Healing Ointment by CeraVe! I use this maybe twice a week at most. 2. Rose + Glow Oil by Leah Skin ✨ Key Ingredients- Vitamin C and Squalane ✨ This oil is a game changer💕 Vitamin C brightens skin gorgeously but always use with SPF! I use it morning and night and notice significant changes in dark spots overnight. Over weeks I’ve seen major transformations in my skin. I have super sensitive skin and get hormonal breakouts so I’m talking from a MESS to smooth and plump. It has squalane and a stable form of Vitamin C that plays nicely with other Vitamin C and even retinol. ✨ Because it is more stable than others, it also lasts significantly longer- this bottle being good for a year after opening compared to some of my others which expire as quickly as 3 months. It is clean, in glass packaging and adorable. I will definitely be repurchasing this once I finish it! 3. Enzyme Powder Polish by Sand & Sky ✨Key ingredients- Australian Glow Berries, Papaya Fruit Enzymes, Quandong and Davidson Plum, Aloe Vera and Jojoba oils for brightening, smoothing, soothing and nourishing skin. It also has their Kaolin clay in it too! ✨This is now my preferred type of wash-off exfoliant. It starts as a powder then you add a little bit of water and rub it into a foam. After massaging on skin for 15 seconds, you simply wash off and go on with the rest of your routine. It makes my skin feel SO SOFT and helps remove any dryness or peeling. It’s super gentle on the skin but really effective and pairs beautifully with retinol as well. ✨This starts as a white powder but when you add water, you get that classic pink Sand & Sky color. Pro-tip, it took me about two tries to get the ratios correct- if you add too little water, you’ll get a paste and if you add too much, it’ll absorb into your hands. You want a light pink foam.

Australian Red Clay Mask
I bought the Dr. Roebuck's Uluru Purifying Mask Red Clay Mask on a whim during an Ulta haul. I bought purely because of the name: Uluru is a very special place to me. I camped in Central Australia, and I saw the sunset and the sunrise over Uluru (Ayers Rock). DR ROEBUCK'S - ULURU Price: $28 Size: 30 mL Unit Price: $0.93/mL The mask itself is fine. Before this one, I'd had good luck with Australia clay masks on my sensitive skin, so I wasn't nervous about trying it. 🍬 Main Ingredients 🍬 ￼The red clay in the mask brings out impurities, dirt, and debris. ￼The white clay is meant to encourage microcirculation of skin cells as it detoxifies. ￼Kakadu Plum, a natural source of vitamin C, brightens and treats pigmentation. ￼Australian Desert Harvest, a blend of Desert Peach (Quandong), Desert Lime, and Wattleseed, revives and replenishes lost nutrients in the skin. ￼The mask also contains sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, and shea butter. 🎯 Results 🎯 After rinsing this mask off, I notice less redness and my tighter pores. I do feel cleaner. I had read reviews about staining on the skin since this is a very deep red mask. I, however, did not notice that and I have very pale skin. Overall, I think this mask is fun more than anything. I feel cleaner and refreshed, and my pores feels tighter. I think the pink clay mask from Sand&Sky is still better, but this is comparable. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Mask Besties Kit This is meant for all skin types, especially combination/oil, congested, and acne-prone skin.
Sand & Sky - Face Masks For Acne
I remember seeing the sand & sky videos on instagram about 2 years ago and thinking there was no way that the results could be real. after seeing my friend post a photo wearing one, i asked if she truly liked the product. she told me that it was one of her favorite masks. i’m now on my 5th tub of the sand & sky pink clay mask. it’s my absolute holy grail for acne. the pink clay really purifies the skin and i notice an immediate result in the appearance of my skin. my skin looks brighter, more even, and the redness in my skin is significantly reduced. the texture is heavenly & super similar to other clay masks. i’ve used this mask for years now and recommend it to everyone in my life, especially my friends that struggle with acne or uneven skin. i travel a ton, for both work and my personal life, and i cannot fly without this mask. planes make my skin so aggrivated and i’m almost guaranteed to have a break out. if i use the mask the night after i fly or the next morning, i never have a break out. this mask is incredible & i cannot recommend it enough. i think it’s absolutely worth the price and i think this product is 5/5 stars (id give it 100/5 if i could) for transparency, i’ve bought 4 tubs of sand & sky on my own and been gifted one.

I really like the sand and sky clay mask, but i’ll be honest, it didn’t blow me away. from all the insta hype, i expected this mask to solve all of my problems (jk) but it was about as effective as any other clay mask, only with a higher price tag. I will continue to try it out if my opinion changes!!
SAND&SKY-Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
I think I’ve finally found a product I can wear in the shower! I’d been trying for a while to squeeze some skincare into my nighttime bath routine. This Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment from Sand & Sky is just what I needed. 🙌🏾 You apply it wet skin, massage it in, & then they suggest leaving it on for 5 mins. I just wash it off at the end of my shower & the results have been great! My skin is so smooth when I rinse this off, y’all. I’m obsessed. 💯 Tbh, I’m about to put this on right now because I’m in love. I’m so happy I got to try this product.

Sand & Sky Dreamy Glow Drops
This is a really neat facial oil. It has two layers and before you use it, you get to shake the bottle to merge them. This is extremely hydrating and does add a pretty glow without feeling like it’s clogging my pores. The bottle is glass and feels really luxurious. I’m really enjoying these so far and the added Hyaluronic Acid!
