Pink is my jam. Not necessarily hot pink, but the soft blush or dusty pink. You’ve seen me in pink dresses, pink shoes…and plenty of pink handbags have graced this blog. So now it’s time to feature something else awesome and pink – the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Mask!
I live in downtown DC where there is a lot of traffic and I’m always going underground to the metro (hello stale yucky air!) Being exposed to the pollution of day to day city living takes a toll on my skin. To try and combat those effects, I like to apply a face mask a couple times a week to invigorate and brighten my skin, and to absorb some of the toxins that may get stuck in my pores.
I know it is hard to fit a mask into an already busy schedule, but I recently switched to using this mask in the morning. I will wake up 10 minutes earlier (the mask takes 10 min to work) and apply my mask, then wash it off and have glowy skin all day long.
The Sand & Sky pink mask comes in a pretty little blue jar, which you open to find and purplish-pink mask. It smells very natural, clean, and soothing with a slightly salty undertone which kind of reminds me of the ocean.
The first three ingredients are Australian Pink Clay, water, Bentonite (a type of healing clay), and Aloe Vera. There are no nasties, no parabens, and it is cruelty-free. This brand literally only makes the mask, so you know they are focused on one thing only. I like that.
I love that it comes with a cute little applicator brush, because I’ve been known to get my hands all messy when I apply a mask. And, without fail, I always get mask in my hair! The brush also helps to make the product go a long way, since you’re not gooping it on with your fingers.
When I’m wearing the mask I like to imagine I’m one of the gorgeous Australian supermodels on the Sand & Sky website, and I’m in on their secret Australian clay beauty weapon. Call me silly, but a product that can transport you to feel an experience (like a YSL lipstick from Paris or a Dead Sea salt bath) is pretty unique and special.
I noticed that it does make my pores look smaller and my skin looks brighter and more refreshed. The brightening qualities of the mask makes it look like I had a full 8 hours of sleep! When I use it I can usually skip foundation and opt for a lighter tinted moisturizer, just because it makes my skin happy. It’s like my little piece of Australian pink goddess heaven right in my apartment.
Do you have a product that makes you feel like a goddess? What do you think of the pink mask?
