Alya Skin-Pink Clay Mask
About the Mask
Alya Skin is an Australian skincare brand famously known for their pink clay mask. The mask is claimed to detoxify, brighten, tighten, and extract pollutants from your skin. The formula is safe for sensitive skin types, and is vegan + cruelty free. There is also a 30-day money-back guarantee, in the case that the mask doesn't work for you. After seeing that this brand had been reviewed world-wide by big influencers and consumers, I decided to give it a try!
How to Use
The instructions on the website mention only applying to the T-zone portion of your face. I believe that this is a generalized instruction that varies on your skin type. If you have a more dry complexion, I recommend applying only to the T zone. I have an oily complexion, so I have no issues in applying this mask to my whole face. I use a generous amount, and I don't find it dries out my face at all. After about 10 minutes of letting the mask dry, you can start to rinse it off. The clay mixture is pretty thick, so it's easiest to remove the mask with a wet towel or wipes. Although my skin doesn't feel dry afterwards, it does feel a bit tight. Therefore, make sure to moisturize well after using the mask.
This was the first clay mask I've ever tried and I was pleasantly surprised! My skin is very sensitive, so I try not to dabble with products that aren't reviewed well. I rinse all facial products off with my hands, but that's really ineffective when it comes to this mask. I've now added a small cloth to my evening routine and I've had no issues whatsoever. The mask is very easy to apply, whether it's with a brush or your hands. I've only been using the mask 1-2 times a week, and I can say I've definitely noticed a difference in my skin tone. The redness has diminished, and my acne is also beginning to disappear. All in all, this mask really worked for me and I highly recommend it.
