Cheap Alternative to Sand & Sky Clay Mask – T-Zone Pink Clay Mask- my honest review

Sand and Sky Australian Pink Clay Mask is around £36 for 60g, so when I heard there is a much more affordable alternative, I jumped at the chance to buy.

T-Zone 125ml Pink Clay Mask is around £6. I got mine from Superdrug.

It’s also vegan and cruelty-free! Hurrah!

Pretty much the same as Sand and Sky, it’s meant to be used a few times a week to detoxify and brighten the skin. It goes on like a paste and you leave it on for 15 minutes whilst it turns white.

T Zone Pink Clay review – I don’t put it on my dry areas. You can see it’s started to dry here, shown with the whiter patches (ends of nose; bottom part of chin)

How is it different to Sand and Sky?

Apart from the price of course mentioned above.

Personally I’d say you can feel the difference when you put it on your skin. T-Zone’s version doesn’t come with a brush so you need to use your fingers, which gets messy. Even after shaking the tub, the texture of the paste isn’t anywhere as thick as Sand and Sky and doesn’t have the same feel in luxury. It stayed on my face fine though and didn’t run.

Sand and Sky Pink Clay Mask comparison review
This is Sand & Sky which I’ve also tried – you can see just how much thicker the product is here. It feels more luxurious than T Zone. And it’s £36 for 60g, so a lot dearer.


I have combi-skin. I have an oily forehead and T zone, normal skin over my cheeks, and dry/sensitive skin to the sides of my nose. As you can see, I didn’t put the product on my sensitive bits.

Yes I’d buy it again. It clears my pores and they visibility look cleaned out, and my face looks smooth. My oily forehead is calmed for a few days.

Would I buy this cheaper option from T-Zone if money wasn’t an issue? Naaaah, I’d stick to Sand & Sky.
