Black + Nude

Black and nude is probably one of my favorite color combinations. It’s clean, it’s simple, and you can do whatever you want with it. Mixing a simple black and nude look with some chunky sterling silver jewelry and leather accessories gives a normally sophisticated outfit some edge.

My Archer Cropped Cami from Alice + Olivia is definitely a summer staple of mine. Another summer staple is linen. The Elyse Trouser from Anine Bing is the perfect cropped high-waisted linen pant that’s breezy and casual.

My leather accessories include a leather cap and the medium Barbara Bag from The Kooples, leather strappy heels, and the Signature Choker from Zana Bayne (vegan leather options are available). I also wore my favorite chunky silver jewelry including the Engraved Dagger Pendant from The Great Frog.

Snake Legs

I may not be a big fan of color, but I do love a good animal print. Combine snake print vegan leather with a super high waist and a flared shape, and there’s a 100% chance I will be obsessed. These pants from Gauge81 are literally my favorite pants that I’ve ever owned.

This outfit is so full of good stuff. I found these round Gucci sunglasses at my local Nordstrom Rack and they were such a killer deal that I had to have them. The Archer Cropped Cami from Alice + Olivia is definitely going to be a staple piece during the summer. My amazing snake print pants are the Chipata Faux Leather Bell Bottoms from Gauge81. They have a super high waist and are a cute flared cut. Plus, they’re vegan. They can easily be styled up or down, and can definitely be worn all year round. My bag is a pre-loved large Ark Bamboo Bag from Cult Gaia. My shoes are super old Hawthorne Boots from Jeffrey Campbell.

Review: Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask

I love a good clay mask, especially in the summer. Summer sweat and sunscreen combined with my already oily skin leaves me looking like a oil slick by the end of the day. Not to mention the breakouts that come next. The Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask looked like the perfect solution to my oily summer skin.

Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask Review

According to Youth To The People’s website, this mask is a “triple-clay mask” that “deep cleans and actively clears pores for skin that functions at its fullest potential”. The sustainable French green, white, and volcanic clays helps draw the extra oils from my skin. The niacinamide, BHA, and red willow bark exfoliate my skin and unclog my pores. It works as both a clay mask and as a lightly exfoliating mask, which is the perfect solution for my summer skin issues.

This mask is your typical clay mask consistency and a blue-grey color. There are no added fragrances so it doesn’t really smell like anything. The lack of fragrance is definitely a plus if you have sensitive or irritated skin.

When using this mask, I didn’t feel any weird tingling or burning sensations. It definitely got tighter as it dried, but that’s typical for clay masks. The instructions say to leave on the mask on for about 10 minutes before washing it off, but I found that it can sometimes take longer to dry. I prefer not to wash off clay masks until they have fully dried. The instructions also say that you can use this mask 1-3 times a week. So far, I’ve been using it twice a week without any problems. You definitely need to apply a moisturizer after using this mask, but I haven’t had any issues with overly dry skin or irritation.

Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask


I gave the Youth To The People Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask a 5/5. The combination of clay and exfoliation masks in one addresses all my oily summer skin issues. It helped make my skin less oily and helped reduce my summer breakouts without causing irritation or making my skin feel too dry. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, made with sustainable clays, has recyclable packaging, and has no parabens or sulfates. This clay mask is going to be my skin savior all summer.
