We know that clay helps to absorb impurities when they are used in beauty products and when Australian beauty brand Sand & Sky dropped their Australian Pink Clay products, I was pretty excited to try them and detox my skin a little.
I have 2 Sand & Sky products on my hands:
1. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment
2. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
Let’s dive in to see what these two products have to offer.
But first… What is Australian pink clay?
There are so many different types of clays used in beauty products. There is no doubt that they are all beneficial to our skin, but pink clay stands out from the lot because it is the gentlest on our skin and is therefore suitable for all skin types. Pink clay also provides a host of nutrients for our skin, helps to replenish moisture, reduce skin irritation and inflammation.
Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay uses a unique mix of Australian Bentonite and Kaolin that are filled with high-quality nutrients and minerals. It is gentle and is suitable for sensitive skin, but yet delivers great results. The Australian pink clay deep cleanses and purifies our skin, and at the same time, combat the daily environmental pollution that causes damage to our skin.
Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment
The Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment feels grainy to touch, just like a regular scrub. The grains are a mixture of sizes and they feel comfortable on the skin — not too rough, nor are they too fine to be effective. I use them to exfoliate my skin before I use any facial mask so that the subsequent mask essence can be better absorbed.
However, this Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment isn’t just a facial scrub. It is also a skin treatment product.
– For purifying treatment: After using it as a scrub during your shower, do not wash it off immediately. Leave it on your skin for 5 minutes.
– For spot and dry patches treatment: Apply the treatment on your skin and leave it on for 20mins.
I used it as a purifying treatment and I left the shower with bright and radiant skin. It was convenient to use to since I can just leave it on my face and continue showering. I have to mention that the grapefruit scent of the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment totally rocks my boat too. Inhale deeply before application for some aromatherapy to relax your senses!
Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
While clay products have a chunkier and heavier texture, this Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask was surprisingly lightweight. That said, it was really easy to spread it on my skin. The product comes with a flat brush. I’ve tried applying the mask both with my fingers and with the brush and I swear it is so much easier to spread the product evenly with the brush. I tend to pick up a little too much of the mask when I’m using my fingers.
There was a warm, tingling sensation after I applied the mask. I was worried that it was an allergic reaction so I quickly went to take a look at the information booklet, and realized that it was totally normal to feel that way.
The mask helps to tighten pores, detoxify, and brighten the skin. Over the past two weeks, I always use it after a late night out to help with detoxification.
I left the mask on for 10 minutes and after washing it off, my skin looked radiant and bright, although my skin felt a little tight too. I guess that’s because I have very dry skin. If you have dry skin like me, just use the mask once to twice a week. However, if you have normal or oily skin, you can use it two to three times per week for maximum efficacy.
On top of using it like a regular mask, you can also dab a little of the mask on your pimple and leave it to dry overnight. It can help to clear up those unwanted spots too, how convenient!
Yes to better skin!
