The claim:

Fortified with a purifying blend of Bamboo Charcoal, Willow Herb and Rooibos Tea to deliver a deep pore cleansing action, buffing away dirt, toxins, and harmful substances to reveal a clear, fresh appearance.

With antioxidant White Tea, Bilberry and Quince, the astringent face mask promotes cell renewal and prevents breakouts, whilst absorbing excess sebum to eliminate unwanted shine and visibly reduce the look of enlarged pores. Skin is left smooth, supple and refined with a healthy glow. Suitable for oily to combination skin.


 My Review:

Another great clay mask from the Aussie brand, Sukin. Sukin Oil Balancing + Charcoal Anti-Pollution Facial Masque is similar to Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask. The texture is smooth and buttery, both have the same greyish color and both have that slight minty smell.


This mask helps to deep cleanse pores and it does refine my skin. I use it for 10 to 15 minutes in the morning before I wash my face with face wash. After 10 minutes, the mask still looks the same (still look wet). When it dries down, it did not tug my skin and it feels less drying than the Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask. After using this mask, my skin looked even tone, and brighter. The Sukin mask does not really help with reducing a big pimple. Because there was one time I was using it when I had a big pimple on my chin and I did not notice any difference with the pimple. It is more like a cleaning mask rather than “calming a breakout” type of mask. I think this mask is very suitable for oily skin people who want a clay mask that does not overly dry on their skin.

Another plus point is the Sukin mask does not get dries too quickly after opening, it still maintains its formula after 2 months. This mask has a longer ingredient list than  Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask. If I must choose between Sukin mask and the Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask, I would still prefer the Swisse mask, just because it has done a better job of clarifying my skin.
