SKIN&LAB is a Korean beauty brand with a plethora of products that are produced with natural ingredients and infused with vitamins . The products consist of hypoallergenic materials passed with strict skin test , approved by HSA (Singapore) & KDA (Korea) .
I saw these two products online during a sale of a 1-for-1 price and thought they were really worth the buck . I didn’t have any similar products and since it was of a well-known brand , I trusted and was really eager to give them a try . Below will be a review of the products I bought as well as some additional info at the end of the review .
The Glacial Clay Facial Mask comes with a spatula for hygiene purposes . I use it to take the clay out and to spread it on my face .
This product has Glacial Clay [3000mg] that comes from Canada . This is under the Dr. Pore Tightening range .

This is the amount of clay I used on my face . It may differ from person to person depending on how much face area you want to cover as well as the shape and size of your face .
Apply enough mask to cover face evenly , avoiding the eye area . Leave on for about 15-20 minutes until the mask sets and dries off . Wash the mask off with clean warm water . Apply toner and/or moisturizer to face after cleansing .
Recommended frequency :
- 2-3 times a week for oily skin .
- 1-2 times a week for dry to normal skin .
Just applied . (You get to enjoy this green face of mine !)
After 20 minutes when the clay mask dries .
When you first apply the mask to your face , there WILL be sharp prickly burning sensations all around the face . This is normal , as stated on the website , that it is just the mask activating it’s pore cleansing effect . This prickly sensation will last for about 5 minutes . This feeling will then gradually decline to a few areas around your face after about 5-10 minutes . At around the 15-20 minute mark , there should not be any burning sensation anymore and your mask should have already set and dried . Once the mask has fully dried , you can wash it off with water . Right after , one may choose to apply moisturizer .
Note : If you’d like to enjoy more contraction and calming effect from the mask , place it in the fridge to keep it cool . Also , do not leave the container open as it dries up pretty quickly .
Right after using the Glacial Clay Facial Mask , my face felt generally smoother and softer . It didn’t make my skin dry one bit , and it felt like my skin did brighten up quite a bit . I also quite love the strong scent of the tea tree leaf which is actually one of my favourite smells for a facial cleanser . It smells wonderful and perks you right up !
The Mont-Blanc Glacial Water Drop (50ml) .
This moisturizer is one of the three in the series of the Dr. Water Supply . All three moisturizers have different ingredients thus having different properties .
This moisturizer is gel-based and comes in a pump bottle . This is also suitable for sensitive skin . It is oil-free therefore being suitable for any skin type .
Functions : Moisturizing and improving skin tone .
Features of water :
- Rich in vitamins and minerals .
- Provides moisture and elasticity for dry and rough skin .
- High mineral content for clear and healthy skin .
The Mont-Blanc Glacial Water Drop is not sticky or oily when you apply it to your face . It is rather smooth and spreads out nicely . Glacial water used as a receptor , has 10 times greater skin penetration than the water used in general moisturizers , so once you apply it to your face , it gets absorbed in pretty quickly . There is also a really nice scent that comes with the moisturizer which I am in love with as it isn’t heavy or overbearing .
Verdict : I do love both these products as I can see that the clay mask is really packing some good ingredients in it , and I am totally in love with the scents in both of them . Just after two uses of the Mont-Blanc Glacial Water Drop and one use of Glacial Clay Facial Mask , my face is feeling so soft and clean , the pores and blackheads look a little less obvious . My skin tone seem to have improved also . I will continue using these products and may just buy them again once I am done . I would recommend the Glacial Clay Facial Mask to anyone who have saggy/open pores or would like to tighten their skin in general , without losing moisture . The Mont-Blanc Glacial Water Drop is one of three in the series of Dr. Water Supply series and should take a look at the other two as they suit different skin types .
