Hope you’re all well. As I think I have mentioned on my blog about 50 times before, I have a really problematic skin. It’s oily, dry, dehydrated all at the same time with my pores being the size of United States of America (ok, a slight exaggeration…). I am always on the look out for products to help me out in some way and after seeing a couple of Facebook videos with absolutely amazing results from this mask, I have decided to splurge and order it for myself.
The mask I’ll be talking about is the Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask from Sand&Sky, that is an Australian brand. The mask itself is quite pricey, £39.90 for a tub to be exact. But after looking at the results shown in the videos, I thought… it is definitely worth it if it can make my pores virtually disappear, right? It took a while to arrive (as it was coming from Australia!) and I didn’t have to pay any additional costs.
The first time I used it, I was literally so excited for the results. I wanted to be one of the girls on the video, absolutely ecstatic with the purification of my skin. Was I? Nope. The mask smoothed out my face nicely, it felt lovely and cleansed but my pores were still there. The same as before. I mean.. take a look at the before and after pictures. A slight difference in brightness and smoothness but nothing like the results shown on the videos.
The mask tingles my face as well. Didn’t bother me but if you’re very sensitive then maybe miss that one out.
Now, I have used the mask about four times.
It does the job and definitely smooths out my skin a lot and cleanses it. I give it that. My make up goes on really smoothly after I had the mask on in the morning and it’s lovely to touch.
My face appears to be less oily.
As to the purification and shrinking of pores… nope. Still there, even after the fourth time. Maybe they’ll magically disappear after I use the whole tub? Or more likely, I will be stuck with them forever.
Due to this, I would probably rate this mask as a
Mainly due to the cost. I mean… for £39.90 I would expect instant, satisfying results.
Have any of you tried it out? Do you love it as much as everyone else?
