I have heard so many positive things about the L’Oreal Pure Clay face masks, since their launch in 2016. Many beauty enthusiasts have been raving over these masks, so I decided to see what the fuss was about and try them for myself.
L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask
What the product claims – This mask contains 3 pure clays and is combined with Charcoal. The Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out impurities from the skin. The creamy texture will detoxify the skin and cleanse deep into pores. Which will leave the skin looking clarified and beautified, without drying the skin out. A thin layer should be applied over the face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave for 5-10 minutes, remove with a face cloth or warm water. Can be used 2-3 times per week. Contains 10 applications.
I feel that this mask certainly lived up to everything the packaging said. I applied a thin layer of product to my face, as directed. The mask had only been on my face for around 5 minutes when I noticed that I could see the oil being drawn from my pores. This was happening especially around my nose and chin. With this mask the proof is certainly in the pudding! I have included a picture of the mask drying and doing it’s thing. Yes, it looks gross, but it certainly is proof enough for me that the mask works! I left the mask on for 10 minutes, as directed, and washed the product off with warm water. I have read a number of reviews on this particular mask that state that the product can be difficult to remove. This was not the case for me at all. I gently massaged the product into my skin with warm water and it washed right off. My skin feels amazing every single time I use this mask. It leaves my face feeling so smooth, refreshed and clean. The product is definitely not drying at all. I am continuing to use this mask three times per week. This is one of the best face masks I have come across.
L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask
What the product claims – This mask contains 3 pure clays and is combined with Red Algae Extract. Red Algae Extract is known for it’s brightening properties. The beaded, creamy texture will illuminate tone by exfoliating the skin’s surface without drying the skin out. Apply a thin layer to the face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave for 5-10 minutes, wash off with a face cloth or warm water. Contains 10 applications
I purposefully saved this mask for a day when my skin was in need of a pick-me-up. My skin was looking particularly dry and dull before I used this mask, so I had very high hopes for this product. As directed, I applied a thin layer of product to my face. Straight away I noticed the grainy texture of the mask. The mask applied really well and it dried just like any other clay mask. The exfoliation comes when you remove the mask with water. I found that wetting my hands and face and really rubbing the product into my skin really helps to bring out the exfoliation benefits. After removing this mask I noticed the patches of dry skin I had on the bridge of my nose and forehead had completely gone. My skin certainly looked brighter and it felt very soft and refreshed. I will continue to use this mask 2 or 3 times per week as I am really impressed with the results.
There is a third mask in this range that I am yet to purchase. It is a purity mask, I will definitely be picking one of these up the next time I am at my local Boots or Superdrug. At £7.99 each, I definitely think that these masks are excellent value for money. The packaging states that there is enough for 10 applications in each mask. Personally, I think that there will be more than 10 applications as you really don’t need to apply too much product. I would love to hear from anyone who has used these masks, let me know what you think.
