A recent Priceline 40% off skincare sale had me buying quite a few items including the Sukin Oil-Balancing Anti Pollution Facial Masque. I had run out of clay masks, so the sale was really good timing.
The masque comes in a 50 ml tub. Under the screw-top lid is another plastic layer to help protect the product. The consistency of the grey coloured treatment is of a clay. It has a refreshing green herbal scent.
I find that although the masque is quite thick, it applies smoothly and easily across the skin. It didn't set like a traditional clay mask that cracks with movement, it is actually quite comfortable to wear.
I leave it on for around 15 minutes as recommended. Removal is easily accomplished with a face washer. I don't need to scrub too much to get the clay mask off my face.
Although I have combination skin that is on the drier side, I still get congestion in my T-zone, so this masque works well to clean and tighten pores without being too drying on the rest of my face. In fact my skin is left soft and smooth.
Sukin Oil-Balancing Anti Pollution Facial Masque is a win for me!
This is a great product I use it and so does my daughter who finds it really helps with her breakouts. The only downside is that it is a bit messy to remove unless you are in the bath or shower once it's on it likes to stay on! My skin feels cleaner and tighter after application, it is a bit tricky to get it out of the tub but that could be because I hate getting stuff under my finger nails, it's easy to apply and you can continue to do any jobs you need to do as it stays put and doesn't feel like its going to run off. Would definately recommend this product.
This is my go-to cleansing clay mask when I feel my skin is feeling clogged or I have breakouts and I’m in need of a bit more TLC than usual. I would suggest not keeping on for longer than 10-15minutes as it can leave your skin feeling too dry and it can get messy when removing so I find it easiest to remove when in the shower or using a face washer.
I've been using this clay mask this summer season when my combination skin tends to feel oiler. The product comes in a jar and has a texture that's not too dry or wet. I apply it with an cheap foundation brush. It has a pleasant smell, not too highly fragranced, but it does sting a little around the nose area where I have mild sensitivity. It dries after 10-15 minutes and like most clay masks, takes a bit of rinsing to take off completely. I wouldn't say that it's particularly effective for my clogged pores but it does leave skin feeling clean, soft and supple, and it is a relaxing experience.
I would be cautious about using this if you have sensitive skin. Maybe check out the clay mask in their sensitive range instead.
Sukin is one of my favourite 'budget brands'. I have been using this mask 1-2 times a week for the passed few months, and I find that my skin is clearer and smoother.
The mask is simple to apply (a little bit thicker than I'd like though) it does have quite a strong scent - it's not unpleasent, but I wouldn't call it pleasant either. I like to leave it on for about 20 mins and take it off using a cotton pad and toner. It doesn't feel tight when on, or leave the skin feeling tight afterwards - It leaves my skin feeling plumper and softer and I can still see the affects the next day - my pimples start coming the the surface and they clear up faster.
Would buy this product again - especially for its price - so much better than products 3x the amount.
i love sukin products, love that they are so natural and paraben free as is this oil balancing facial masque. the mask feels nice and soothing to wear, its easy to use and rinses off with ease. I use this once a week as i have an oily tzone and i find this product really helps. it removes blackheads, soaks up excess oil and refines my pores. i find it leaves my skin really soft after use and its super gently, which is great for those with sensitive skin. my face actually glows after use. it smells really nice and has nice packaging. this is a great product for oily or acne prone skin while still being gently. it comes at a great price point, love the white tea, pomegranate and quince and the charcoal for oil. i would highly recommend this masque and would purchase it again
I tried this mask after trying Sukins Purifying one. I was not a fan of that one as it didn't have much of an effect in my oily skin. I wasn't expecting to like this one, but I was absolutely blown away!
This one sucks up all the oil in my skin. It makes my skin feel fresh and clean. My blackheads are noticeably reduced, and pimples are starting to shrink.
I use this product once a week, which is the perfect balance for my skin.
I use this anti-pollution face masque over my forehead and t-zone - so the areas that I have a lot of oil, blackheads and whiteheads.
The fragrance of this face masque is really strong - what I am smelling is the rooibos, it's a very strong smell and I am still not quite used to this fragrance. It's not exactly inviting.
I leave the mask on my face for 10 minutes or until it dries and then I wash it off.
It leaves my skin feeling less oily but still uncomfortable and not overly dry.
I really love this product. Since changing my birth control i've been experiencing some serious teenage acne breakouts for the first time in a good decade. Understandably i've panicked and tried everything. This mask really helps with reducing the excess sebum in my skin. I like to do an at home steam to open my pores then use the mask. It glides on really easily and doesn't feel tight or flaky while drying. The day after use my skin looks significantly clearer and it takes the edge off any bigger spots that are hanging around. Will definitely be purchasing this again.
I had never used any Sukin product before trying this masque. I thought "charcoal is the trend, so I'll give it a go". I have to say, it pleasantly surprised me! Its inside sleek black lid reminds me almost of a spa like product and its texture is velvety smooth and spreads very easily over the face. I end up leaving it on for a little longer than the recommended 15min but it really doesn't need to as it dries up quickly - maybe too quickly!! Its smell is also subtle so no strong smells going up your nose while it's on.
This Sukin masque makes your skin feel soft and plump once removed - I use a warm cloth to remove it - and my skin feels ready for its next product to be applied.
I initially thought that given its affordable price that it would disappoint me but I actually really like it. I now use it once a week along with other masks on different days and my face thanks me - having been a mum recently I have noticed that my amazing pregnancy skin is now quite dry hence the reason why I love using masks at the moment!
Even though this product says its for oily skin, I'd recommend it for any skin type!!
This product is a miracle in a pot!
I had been looking for a facemask for quite some time now, and this one jumped out at me during a Priceline sale!
I dont generally have oily skin, however, my pores are quite large and noticeable. So after deliberating whether to buy it or not, I decided to give it a go.
Upon application, it is sooo smooth! A small amount goes a long way, and it covers the face beautifully. The scent is light and not overpowering.
After 10 minuets, i rinsed off with warm water, and my skin was so soft, clear and fresh, it was amazing.
My pores were visably smaller, with all of the dirt removed from my face too.
I didnt even feel like i needed to put on a moisturiser, my skin felt that refreshed.
I would highly recommend to anyone with large pores, oily, or acne prone skin, i believe this product stands up to what it advertises and i will 100% be repurchasing.
