Nowadays I generally way to tired and/or too lazy to put clay mask because sometimes I think it’s a hassle, lol. But, when I do, I gravitated towards this Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask that specifically formulated for acne prone skin. Is it good, and way better than any other clay mask that I’ve ever tried before? Read my full thoughts bellow. 😉
What it is
The wash-off mask instantly soothes problem areas with its strong effects.
How to apply
1. Use at the last step of skincare.
2. Apply an appropriate amount on the face and massage starting from the center and working outward.
3. With the left-over moisture, gently dab away to promote absorption by skin.
1. Use only as directed.
2. Avoid storing in high/low temperatures or in areas exposed to direct sunlight.

It came out together with all of rebranding the Etude House AC Clean Up line up. During its first releases, when we bought the famous AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot, they will provide a deluxe sample size of the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot which contains 20ml of the products. Etude House is no longer provide the Pink Powder Mask samples together with the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot a couple of months after that, but I was lucky enough that I still get the free sample when I was repurchase it sometime last year.
I noticed that a lot of people love this Pink Powder Mask, especially those who already been a loyal consumer of the Pink Powder Spot. Well, I could relate. Because from my point of view, this mask is the mask version of the famous Pink Powder Spot. they shares very similar effect and results. I even use it as spot treatment, as my replacement of the Pink Powder Spot when I run out of it.
However, unlike the Pink Powder Spot, you can use this mask for all over your face without the fear to dry out your skin. And unlike typical clay mask, this mask won’t drying out your skin and more sensitive skin friendly because it feels like it medicated and heals your sensitive skin. Although it won’t instantly reduce your sebum production and your acne, but it will certainly help in the long run, and more importantly, it won’t irritated your skin. Furthermore, I like that this mask come in a tube form, because it will prevent the mask from drying out and it will certainly more hygienic.
So, I highly highly recommend this mask if you need a less drying clay mask and/or if you have sensitive, acne prone skin. It has similar medicated herbal scent with the Pink Powder Spot, and as a person that highly sensitive with fragrance, I don’t find this scent to be disturbing at all, I even think that this mask has calming scent. It won’t dry up completely, and I found that this mask will calm your skin if you have irritated skin. Moreover, this Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Mask has super affordable price (even cheaper than the highly acclaimed Innisfree Super Volcanic Mask), so, I think it’s a pretty good deal for a pretty good mask!
