POST UPDATED WITH BEFORE & AFTERS!
Well of course, we were online shopping because our self control is limited…… to say the least….. and I decided to take the fricking plunge regarding a cult favorite. I tend to steer clear of cult favorites because I find that they’re best known for weird reasons… like the packaging is AMAZING… or I dunno, some of these cult favorites don’t make sense to me, but anyways, after seeing this product all over Instagram, other social media sites & blogs we follow, Cheeky decided to get on the darn band wagon 😉
Our Sand & Sky mask arrives on this week, but I’ve been really wanting to write about it! We’ll be sure to update this blog with our own personal feedback. Be sure to keep up with us on Instagram. Let’s take a look to get us excited to see what it’s all about!
Check out some of our favorite cult favorites that are actually worth the buy!
What does the Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask do:
Detoxifies: It purifies and tightens pores.
Invigorates: Organic licorice stimulates new cell production, while Old Man’s Weed (wonder what this is!?!?!) tackles pigmentation.
Old Man’s Weed is actually Centipeda cunninghamii. There is a ground cover vine that grows in Australia known as “Old Man’s Weed” that is being used in skincare products to treat skin problems. It contains high amounts of thymol which is apparently a great natural antibiotic & an antifungal agent. It’s also high in vitamin C – actually even greater amounts than thymol – so that’ll help you get rid of dark spots. WHO KNEW!? Now we both do!
Tightens: Tightens pores & soothes
Stimulates: Stimulates collagen production.
Brightens: The combo of kakadu plum and mangosteen work together creating a defense shield to leave skin clear & glowing.
Kakadu plum is a native plant to Northern Australia. It’s best known for its healing properties. It also is high in vitamin C, rich in antioxidants & soothes irritated skin. As for the mangosteen, it is a pretty fruit that looks like a plum and is best known for being rich in antioxidants.
How often should should you use the product?
If you have oily skin or combination skin, they recommend you use 2 to 3 times a week for best results. For dry or sensitive skin, use up to 2 times per week. It would appear this product can be ‘drying’ so that’s something to think about.
How do you use the mask?
Step 1: Cleanse your face before applying the mask with your free applicator brush.
Step 2: Leave on for 10 minutes or until fully dry.
Step 3: Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
What does the mask feel like?
The mask is known to give you a tingling feeling. According to Sand & Sky, this tingle is good and means that the ingredients are working to tackle the impurities on your skin while you relax.

Check out these before & afters!
They almost look like blurred photos, right!? I poked around on Google for non-Sand & Sky photos & I was seeing pretty darn good results there too.
- 91% saw results after 3 uses of exfoliating treatment
- 92% agree it’s the best mask of 2017
- 95% would repeat their purchase
- Use this mask as a spot treatment. If you notice a little blemish, take a dab and leave it overnight. Do this a couple nights in a row & it should help dry out the blemish.
- Sand & Sky recommends you use this mask in the evening so your serums & night creams can absorb that much better.
- Sand & Sky recommends using the brush they supply rather than your hands. It’s considered more hygienic!

Hey Cheeky’s! Just thought I’d share an update with you. Tried out our mask last night and I have to say I was COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY impressed. I texted a Cheeky to put it on her Christmas list! I went from some pores showing to NO PORES showing. I was actually mesmerized. My skin was so darn smooth and even brighter.
Look forward to seeing the lasting results after what they’re saying is 3 uses. Let me know if you end up trying it.
^ Pretty bright skin right!? Because I’m mostly Italian, I tend to get pretty dark right in the corners of my eye (not underneath, but right on the inside, kind of weird & hard to explain), but after using this mask, I was like ‘Dayuummm!’ BTW, do we think I have ‘resting bitch face’… I can’t decide!
