Skincare Review | SKIN&LAB Glacial Clay Facial Mask
Packaging: It has a very sanitary packaging. You get a mini spatula to take out the amount of product that you want to use. You get a plastic cover that separates the product from the cap; hygienic and helps in keeping the product moist. Clay masks dry out really easily, so you must ensure that you cover the product with the given lid and close the cap tightly.
Product consistency and texture: It’s like green mud with bits of salt particles. It’s quite solid, so spreading it on your face can be quite tough at the beginning, but your fingers will warm the product so it will gradually get easier to spread and blend. I actually like the grainy texture. It helps to exfoliate when you wash off the product so it’s easier to remove. The Skin & Lab Glacial Clay Facial Mask dries up in 15-20 minutes so if there were no grainy bits, it’ll be more difficult to remove!
Fragrance: You can’t be expecting a floral or fruity scent to come out of this product right? Simply said, it smells like potent herbal tea, with a hint of mud. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but it grows on you. I’m used to this smell already. If you have acne problems, you should be used to all these funky smells.
Did it work? A word of warning: when you first apply it, it will sting. Yes you know about clay masks and the tingling sensation. This brings the sensation to a whole new different level. It simply STINGS. Your entire face feels like it’s being prickled by millions of tiny needles. Sounds major scary right? I was so scared for my skin when I used it for the first time!
But don’t worry, the tingly sensation will gradually disappear within the first 5 minutes and after that it just feels cooling and then it will feel tight when all the product has dried up.
For areas that have slight bumps or a slight sign of infection, the Skin & Lab Glacial Clay Facial Mask will bring them to the whitehead stage much much much faster. I don’t really like how it brings out the whiteheads, but I can’t really blame the product since I have too much skin infections right?
Overall impression: I will give this a very high 9 out of 10. The smell is not terrible (terrible to some, but not me), it works in controlling the excess sebum, minimising pores and drying out the whiteheads. Definitely a future repurchase for me!For areas that have slight bumps or a slight sign of infection, the Skin & Lab Glacial Clay Facial Mask will bring them to the whitehead stage much much much faster.

The seller was really kind and included the below samples too! I think I’m passing the Red Serum to my mom because it’s more for anti-ageing.
