We have a bit of a crush on Sand & Sky (check out our reviews of the Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask, the Australian Pink Clay Smoothing Body Sand and the OG pink clay mask for proof), so it's safe to say I was very excited to give this cleanser a go.
A little about the product
When making this product, Aussie twin sisters, skincare wizards and Sand & Sky co-founders Emily and Sarah Hamilton were on a mission to create an everyday cleanser. It's powered with a 4-in-1 formula that removes makeup while fighting congestion and impurities.
Just like the rest of the Sand & Sky range, the Australian Pink Clay Deep Pore Cleanser is packed with loads of local goodies. The mineral-rich clay draws out yucky impurities and helps to balance oil production to banish breakouts. The gel texture is broken up by soft beads of Australian finger lime and luffa plant to exfoliate the skin. It also contains witch-hazel to help refine pesky pores while soothing irritation and Australian virgin macadamia oil to boost hydration.
The first thing I noticed about this product is that it smells INCREDIBLE. The Australian finger lime gives off a super fresh and citrusy scent, which is divine. For a clay-based product, it's also super soft and pleasant to apply on the skin.
If we're talking first impressions, I always judge a cleanser by its ability to remove my makeup. I usually wear a full coverage foundation and find I have to use an additional makeup remover product to really get it off. I was thoroughly impressed when the Pink Clay Deep Pore Cleanser actually did the damn thang and removed my makeup with ease.
To be completely transparent, I received this product around a week ahead of the launch, so I've only been using it for a couple of days. However, I did notice a few subtle differences after my first couple of uses. My skin immediately looked brighter and felt dewy, but not oily. My skin errs on the dry side but the super gentle exfoliating beads did the trick and helped my skin feel super soft.
I gave this product a whirl during the time I usually expect a few hormonal spots. Although I did still experience a small breakout in my T-zone area, I did notice that it was less severe than usual.
How much is it?
This cleaner will set you back $45.90, which sits around the middle of the price range that you can expect to fork out for a good quality cleanser.
Sand & Sky has done it again with the Australian Pink Clay Deep Pore Cleanser. For the price point, it does a fabulous job. The tag team of local ingredients including pink clay, finger lime and witch-hazel give your skin a thorough clean without causing irritation, which is perf for a regular exfoliating cleanser. Although you can use it every day, I'd probably be more inclined to use it every other day to avoid over-exfoliating and drying out my skin.
Where to buy
This bad boy launched on 16 April and you can pick it up from the Sand & Sky website.
