My Review of Facetheory's Pink Clay Aha Face Mask

Updated on February 18, 2020

My articles surround a variety of topics from health and beauty, fashion and tattoos to mental health.

Whether you're a beauty enthusiast or skincare connoisseur, you'll understand that loving a product is one thing, while clicking ''re-order'' is a whole new level of commitment.

After falling in love with FaceTheory's Clarifying Cleanser and Retinol Scar Treatment Oil a few months ago, I was eager to expand my collection. So, when the time finally came to re-purchase my skin saviour last month, I thought I would treat myself to one of their natural face masks too. Like a child in a sweet shop, I spent more time than I'd like to admit deliberating between the Green Tea Face Mask and the Pink Clay AHA Mask. Eventually, pink won out.

*Disclaimer: This product was purchased by me and I am not in any way affiliated with or being paid for my review. All opinions are my own.


The Rising Popularity Of Clay In Skincare

The use of clay in skincare dates back to the prehistoric era - maybe that's why Wilma Flintstone and her gal pal, Betty Rubble always had such flawless complexions? All jokes aside, the minerals found in this natural resource offer a long list of health and cosmetic benefits, and pink clay is the latest in a long line of obsessions within the beauty community.

Following the launch of the Insta-famous Australian Pink Clay Mask, which took home a beauty award after winning the hearts of thousands, several more affordable alternatives to this holy grail product have begun popping up, including FaceTheory's very own AHA mask.

An Overview Of FaceTheory's Pink Clay AHA Face Mask

Created using the silica-rich cosmetic grade clay known as Kaolin, the Pink Clay AHA Face Mask promotes glowy skin while the crushed walnut shells and pomegranate work together to deliver a luxurious exfoliating treatment. Like all of the other products sold on their website, the mask is cruelty-free, vegan and contains only natural ingredients meaning there are no harsh chemicals, SLE's or sulphates lurking beneath the surface.

Having used several different clay masks in the past (some of which I found to be very drying), another thing about the AHA mask which piqued my interest is that the product is infused with hydrating oils, including organic argan and organic jojoba oil which add moisture to your skin while the clay works its magic by drawing out impurities.


Pink Clay AHA Face Mask Cost

For anyone new to the land of pink clay masks, the retail price of £14.99 might seem a little steep - especially when you consider that at 60ml the product is relatively small. However, in comparison to similar masks on the market right now, FaceTheory is offering an absolute bargain.

Unlike other masks which require a generous application, the beauty of pink clay (pun not intended!) is that a little really does go a long way, so even a small pot like this should last quite a while.


My Experience Using The Product

Following the instructions, I cleansed my face before applying a thin layer of the mask with a flat foundation brush, and I was pleasantly surprised by how little product I needed for a full application. As well as being very easy to apply (your carpets will be safe!), it also felt weightless on my skin and where some masks have me counting down the minutes until I can wash them off, the next ten minutes of using the Pink Clay Mask passed by very quickly.

Another way in which this product differs from more traditional clay masks is that it never fully dries out, making it easy to wash off without any vigorous scrubbing. Instead, it almost seems to melt off with warm water which gives you some extra time to massage the crushed walnut shells into your skin, reaping the full benefits of the exfoliating aspect of the product.

Now I know what you're probably thinking: ''Crushed walnuts are bad'' right? While they did receive backlash for doing more harm than good, FaceTheory had made sure that this ingredient is so finely ground that it is safe for use on all skin types.

Final Thoughts

Immediately after using this product for the first time, I noticed that my skin was visibly brighter and a lot smoother to touch. Overall, I am very pleased with how this product is working for me, and using it once weekly in conjunction with my other skincare favourites is helping me to keep my acne-prone skin under control and improve my skin's overall texture and appearance.
