It’s my go-to beauty product at the moment, guaranteed to give flawless skin… and I’m not alone. This unique Brilliant Skin face mask, £39.90, by Sand & Sky not only works to clarify and detoxify the complexion, but it is the cult beauty brand of the moment – flooding Insta feeds across the world.
With Australian Pink Clay at its heart, this hard-working mask draws out oils and sebum, shrinks pores and reduces pigmentation. Smooth it on with the diddy brush and, within ten minutes, skin is left glowing. Its nurturing formula is the perfect pick-me-up for dull complexions, and – perfect for germ-o-phobes – it really feels like it gives a deep clean. Due to not containing any nasties (it is paraben-free and cruelty-free), it is also perfect for sensitive skins.
I’ve been putting it on twice a week – on Sunday and Wednesday evenings (yes, I like a routine!). Brush it on clean skin, potter around for 10 minutes, until it is completely dry, then rinse off using a muslin or soft flannel with warm water.
Pat dry using a clean towel and – ta dah – the big reveal: clean, glowing skin which looks a whole lot better than when you started!
Inspired by the effectiveness of many of Australia’s natural ingredients, founders Emily and Sarah Hamilton wanted to use Australian pink clay in a product that would utilise its mountain of benefits. Riding the ‘mask’ beauty trend – but one that gives immediate results and genuinely works – they packaged it up with bold typography, and, organic and vegan ingredients. Hey presto, it’s Sand & Sky success.
