I love masking. Well, who doesn’t. Thanks to the Instagram craze, masking has become quite a trend these days.
Few days ago, I too was scanning through the Facebook, almost hovering from one skincare page to another in search of a ‘good mask‘ .
Only my intention wasn’t merely to buy one for following any Instagram band wagon. Instead, I was genuinely in search of a masking product that could legit help me with the tightening of enlarged pores as well as skin renewal.
At the same time, I was making sure that it doesn’t burn a hole in my pocket. So basically, I was on a lookout for an effective product from a reputable brand within 1k of price range, yeah I knew it’s going to be tough.
Putting all those filters on my search made an already cumbersome task 2 times more challenging for me.
Long story short, after 40 minutes of thorough searching, I finally came across clay play borax and sandalwood clay mask by Qubbles Bath and Body.
I was already familiar with Qubbles and had heard good things about the brand before . And the best part is, it was under my budget as well, even after adding delivery charges and all it was under 1k, which is what I was looking for.
Keeping all that in consideration, it didn’t take me long making my mind to giving it a go.
I have been using it for 3 months and I think it’s the best time to review it.
So, if you have also been looking for a budget friendly as well as organic clay mask and considering to add this mask to your vanity, allow me to walk you through the features and results of clay play borax mask.

Qubbles Clay Play Mask: The Review with Pros and Cons
As mentioned on Qubbles’ official fb page, the ingredients are:
- 3 more herbs and lots of magical ingredients (well I am quite curious to find out what those magical ingredients are)
650 pkr (when I bought) right now it retails for 740 pkr (as per qubbles bath and body official page)
200g (can be used for 2 months or more)
For this affordable price point, you get a lot and it’s more than enough for the use of a single person. It would last you for good 4 to 6 months, depending on your use.
To be honest, I am not a fan of its packaging. In fact the packaging is quite mediocre and could have been way better. Maybe the manufacturers will work on it in future.
Well, nevermind, as long as product is good we can work with the packaging. However, one thing I have objection with is that they haven’t mentioned ingredients and expiry date on the packaging.
Consistency and Texture
It comes in finely milled powder form. You need to be careful while mixing it with rosewater as it goes runny if you accidentally add a little more liquid. Texture after application feels almost like fullers earth mask but a little less stiffer than fullers earth. It’s easy to rinse and gets completely dry within 15 to 20 minutes.
You can order it directly from the Qubbles bath and body’s official facebook page or it can be ordered from Sheops or other ecommerce sites like Daraz.
As mentioned under the product description on official Qubbles bath and body’s facebook page, Clay Play Borax and Sandalwood clay mask is supposed to bring the following results.
- Lightens skin
- Fights acne
- Diminishes acne scars
- Anti aging
- Tightens open pores
- Brings back the natural glow
- Lightens dark spots
- Deep cleanses
- Even skin tone
- Anti inflammatory
- Boasts collagento get rid of loose skin
How to use
As per the instructions mentioned on the jar, you aren’t supposed to use it by using silver spoon or any other silver utensil.
I take one 1 tbsp of powder and mix it with rose water or plain water. I apply a thin layer of it just like we apply multani mitti (fuller’s earth) mask.
Wait 15 to 20 minutes. Once it’s completely dry, wash your face with tap water or luke warm water.
Note: It’s a borax mask which has its specific chemical properties, therefore be cautious that you don’t apply any other cream or moisturizer right after washing it off. Wait at least 1 hour before you apply a gentle moisturizer.
Bear the fact in mind that right after first application you are not going to observe any extraordinary results. However, it leaves your face looking fresh, firm, supple and hydrated.
Also, it minimzes the appearance of pores and is best to use 2 to 3 hours before makeup application. Keep in mind after the first use, these results are going to stay only for a short period of time.
It leaves a smooth canvas for the makeup and helps you achieve flawless and long lasting base.
For desired and lasting results i.e. pore minimizing, even skin tone and tightening, you have to use it once a week consistently for 4 to 5 months.
- Minimizes appearance of pores

- Budget friendly

- Easy to apply and easy to rinse
