When we think about brands that we wanted to try, Sand & Sky products were on top of the list, and we have never been so happy because we received an invitation to collaborate with them. To say that we are excited with this collaboration is little.
We have been following this brand for some time on Instagram, and the clay mask caught our eyes. It’s no secret that is their best seller product, and if you check the ingredient list, we promise that you will become a fan too. Good news is that we are going to talk about this product in future, so tay tuned…
Their list of products is amazing, and it was very difficult to only choose a bundle to try. I (Rita) wanted to try their best sellers, while Joana wanted to try their glow line. But we thought and thought and decided to choose this bundle that you can see in the video below (spoiler alert, I think I won)!
Why do we like Sand & Sky as a brand?
They follow a simple rule that we agree with and love: easy-to-use skincare that works. Sand & Sky is based on clean and effective formulas and skips crazy claims.
All of their products are packed with Aussie botanicals that have been used for thousands of years to treat, heal, and highlight natural beauty.
Do you need more reasons to love this brand? Wait, I have a few more, because their products are…
- cruelty-free (PETA Approved)
- made with clean formulas (free of nasties)
- born in Australia (powered by Australian botanicals)
- packed using recyclable materials (they reduce the waste wherever they can).
On today’s post, I’m going to talk about their Flash Perfecting Exfoliator. Honestly, I was so happy that this product came with me to home (we are two girls, and we took one product for each one) because I needed a good exfoliator.
If you follow our blog, you may know that I have combo/oily skin, depending on the weather, and although is important to use a good exfoliator in every type of skin, these types of skin need it even more.
When I knew that the Flash Perfecting Exfoliator promised to smooth uneven texture and clear congestion with its triple-action facial exfoliator, I knew I had to try it.
The Flash Perfecting Exfoliator does not contain sulfates, silicones, parabens, or phthalates. The list of good ingredients is enormous, and amount them, we have:
- Bamboo & Macadamia for gentle physical exfoliation
- Finger Lime extract gently sloughs of dead skin cells
- And, of course, Pink Clay
Why do we love Pink Clay?
Sourced from pristine parts of the country, Australian Pink Clay is the ultimate detoxifier – absorbing impurities and combating pollution like a boss. Combined with powerful botanicals, it deep-cleanses the skin and refines pores. No dryness, zero irritation. What’s not to love?
How should you use this product?
It’s simple, and I understand that the use of exfoliates with AHAs can be a little scary, but don’t worry, I’ll explain everything:
- If you have oily skin or combination skin use 2-3 times a week for best results.
- For dry or sensitive skin, use up to 3 times per week.
The texture makes it easy to apply and to wash it off. Check the video below and see how pretty and pink the actual product is.
Don’t use this product on the same day as your Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask to avoid over-stripping your skin’s natural oils. And do not exfoliate more than three times a week. Remember that the skin needs some time to repair itself.
- Cleanse your skin before exfoliating. This way, you allow the AHAs to work more effectively.
- Apply the product on the skin evenly. Skip the skin around the eyes.
- Give a little massage to help clean the dry, dead skin cells that often lead to congestion and breakouts.
- For sensitive skin, kip the massage, and leave it on as a mini 5 minute mask before rinsing to let the AHAs do the heavy lifting.
- Wait 5 minutes with the product on the skin.
- Rinse with warm water.
- Apply your normal cream or enjoy your favorite face mask, this is the perfect time to use it!
This product is Amazing, and I’m not saying this just because it was a free product! I really liked it, and I’m very picky when it comes to exfoliators. My skin is a little sensitive, so it’s not every exfoliator that amazes me. This one is potent, and it works, and that’s what matters to me. After washing it off, I immediately feel my skin different. Feels softer, luminous, and looks so much healthy. I’ve been using it for the last two weeks, and I honestly fell and see differences. My pores look tight, and some scars from pimples are less visible. I also noticed some oil control, which results in less break-outs..
Remember when I said that my skin feels softer? It does, and I can feel it between uses. I feel the need to underline this because I never felt my skin so soft in my life.
Overall the skin looks more plumped, and it glows. I think the photos speak for themselves. Don’t you think?
The scent is pleasant and not strong – I can feel the well known clay scent. Because my skin is a little sensitive, I find that massaging it twice a week is too much. When you massage, you can feel the physical exfoliation. And I like that, I like to feel the product doing the job.
I massage the product only for a few seconds and only once a week, then I wait five minutes and wash it off. That way, the process of exfoliation is not so strong, and enough for my skin.
I’m going to continue using this product, and I will be going to keep you updated on Instagram, so don’t forget to follow our page. If you are interested on trying this product or any from this brand, click here (*affiliate).
