Let’s Talk #RainbowMasking

Masking Tip: Don’t expect a single mask to cure your skin woes.

First, understand that the skin on your face isn’t the same throughout. Some parts will be oiler, some will be drier, some will need more wrinkle-care, etc. Rainbow Masking is basically treating different needs with different masks.

If you were getting some acne spots treated, you wouldn’t put acne cream all over your face! Same idea here. If you’ve ever wondered why a mask wasn’t giving you any results or making things worse, this may be the reason why~

Yes, it is more work. But you only need to do it 1-2 times a week and if you’re spending time masking anyway, might as well do it right the first time 💪

Single Masking: 35 minutes spent each week & minimal results
Rainbow Masking: 45 minutes spent each week & maximal results

You do the math 😉

Today, I’m using the Bonvivant Botanical Mellow Clay Masks as examples. These new jelly clay masks come in three variations: mint tea tree, pink calamine, and volcanic powder.



Uses: exfoliating, pore care

Great for: troubled & oily skin

Common areas: forehead, chin, apples of the cheeks

The green clay mask has a slightly grainy texture, making it perfect for gently removing dead skin around patchy areas and help with enlarged pores. It has a cooling and tightening sensation that feels very refreshing on the skin. In terms of consistency, it’s the most watery of the three, but dries quickly and cleans easily.


Uses: reduce redness, calms skin, soothes dry flakes

Great for: dry skin

Common areas: around the nose/mouth, acne spots, perimeter of the face

The pink clay mask has the most interesting texture. It’s bouncy, just like a bowl of jelly.


If you don’t know what calamine is, it’s basically one of the best ingredients for calming sunburns and rashes. This clay mask will soothe dry patches by providing some deep hydration.


Uses: draw out impurities, removes blackheads, controls excessive sebum

Great for: blackheads, sensitive skin

Common areas: down the nose, triangle under the eyes, forehead

This mask contains Jeju Volcanic Clay. Jeju is an island in Korea that produces some of the best ingredients in Korean skincare- from its water to its plants to its clay. The volcanic powder pulls blackheads and other impurities to the surface of your skin and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.

How To Rainbow Mask

First, figure out what your trouble areas are. Do you notice some major dry patches on your cheeks? Or maybe your T-zone is especially oily. Pinpoint the concerns (remember, you don’t need to cover your ENTIRE face so it’s okay if some parts of your face are perfectly fine) and find the best mask for each.

Leave on for 10-15 minutes and wash off before the mask gets completely dry- a fully dried mask might actually pull moisture back out of your skin!

(Another) Masking Tip: Use a wide damp sponge to clean off your mask. It’ll help prevent tugging and really get the thick clay off.
