Sukin Anti-Pollution Facial Masque Review

Sukin calls their Anti-Pollution Facial Masque "a must have for your bathroom cupboard! It heroes Bamboo Charcoal as the key active for its purifying properties and is infused with Moringa Extract. The Charcoal helps absorb toxins and impurities which reveals purified and cleansed skin. Rooibos Tea, Willowherb and Aloe Vera revitalise and refresh blemish prone skin. Our Masque has Quince, Bilberry and Pomegranate Extracts which assist in tightening pores, reducing shine and leaving a balanced complexion. Skin is left moisturised and nourished from Avocado, Coconut and Rosehip Oils." This mask contains 100ml (3.4 oz) of product and retails for $16.99 at Priceline and grocery stores throughout Australia. Sukin products are cruelty free, vegan, and made in Australia.

Sukin's Anti-Pollution Facial Masque comes in a semi-translucent brown jar with a screw on lid. Grey labels are affixed to the top of the lid and around the jar, both offering product information and  a full ingredient list. You have to be very careful to keep this jar closed tightly, otherwise you risk this clay mask drying out - my jar dried out right at the end, so I missed out on the last two or three uses. All packaging is recyclable.

The Anti-Pollution Facial Masque is a dense, creamy, blue paste that applies nicely on dry or damp skin. This mask, which is meant to be left on for approximately 15 minutes, remains moist for the duration of wear and removes easily with a wash cloth (though it may cause staining on light colored fabrics!). I've had great luck with most of Sukin's products (with one exception), so I had high expectations for their Anti-Pollution Facial Masque...and they were met! This mask soaks up excess oil without stripping the skin, due to an excellent formula that balances purifying ingredients like clays and charcoal with hydrating plant oils and extracts. The Anti-Pollution Facial Masque is quite good at pulling the gunk out of your pores, and it can be used as an effective spot treatment to help pull some pimples up to a head.

Sukin's Anti-Pollution Facial Masque has a base of water, kaolin and bentonine clays, with some texture enhancing fatty alcohols. Avocado and rosehip oil come up next, to hydrate the skin and balance the purifying charcoal that follow them. Hydrating coconut oil, aloe, cucumber, moringa extracts hydrate while rooibos and chamomile soothe. Antioxidant rich pomegranate and bilberry extracts are included, along with hydrating glycerin and tocopherol (vitamin e). My only complaint about the Anti-Pollution Facial Masque's ingredient list is the essential oil blend used to fragrance this product - lavender and citrus oils make up some of the final ingredients. This combination of essential oils gives Sukin's mask a herbal citrus scent that's quite "Lush" in nature.

I like Sukin's Anti-Pollution Facial Masque a good bit! I don't think this is a remarkable mask, but it's very effective and reasonably priced. I'm currently using a very similar product, but I'll likely repurchase the Anti-Pollution Masque as it's equally effective but much more affordable. If you're on the look out for a purifying face mask with a good ingredient list, I definitely think Sukin's Anti-Pollution Facial Masque is worth looking into!
