It’s not that I don’t hydrate my skin in the winter — in fact, I hydrate it more than usual — it’s just that my skin can’t absorb as much. During these cold weather months, the cycle of trying to moisturize my overly dry skin becomes a problem for Spring Tamim, and so my time has come. Right before the Sand & Sky Mask came on the scene, my daily moisturizer was no longer cutting it and my skin needed more intervention to get over its rough patch and be ready for a new season. So when the brand offered me his Tasmanian spring water mask to try, he couldn’t have come at a better time.

Since then, I’ve been using it a few times a week when I feel like my skin needs an extra boost. In the morning, I wash my face and apply the mask before taking my meds, making coffee, and cooking breakfast. Based on the brand’s recommendations, I wait about 10 minutes then rinse off before continuing with the rest of my routine. The difference is immediate, and I start to feel the benefits while the mask is still on my face – I feel like I wake up in the middle of the night parched and take a huge sip of perfectly cold water.

It makes sense when you look at the formula. Two of the star ingredients, hyaluronic acid and squalane, are common hydrating and anti-aging heavyweights that can provide even more benefits when used together. It also incorporates under-the-radar ingredients like mineral-rich, pH-balancing Tasmanian water and fermented Tasmanian sea kelp, which may help prevent wrinkles and maintain elasticity, per Skin & Sky.

The best way to describe my skin after the mask is bouncy. My complexion is smooth, full and supple. Everything about my face that day also feels better – I notice fewer bumps and ridges when applying my serums, my skin seems to absorb products more, and I see less pilling. And on days when I wear a face covering, like foundation, I can avoid prepping my face with oil drops, which I had to do before to avoid flaking.
