It’s so good to finally sit down with a cup of tea and my MacBook and just write. It’s been a while since I’ve wrote a proper review-blog post. Since I’ve been a little busy this past few weeks moving house with my lovely boyfriend I’ve not had the chance to write anything new on my blog, which I’ve really missed.
I’ve actually been wanting to get this up for quite a while but sine a lot of other bloggers have been writing about it I thought I would stand back a little. Not really jumping on the bandwagon for the sake of posting it, but because I actually REALLY LOVE this product. I just had to follow everyone else and get my thoughts out there on it.
So I was shopping with my boyfriend where we both spotted these new masks in Boots. He knows I love face masks so automatically pulled me to them (YES!!). The new L’OREAL Pure Clay masks were all advertised on the top shelf but only one out of the three were in stock.
L’oreal came out with their first ever range of face masks this summer and everyone went crazy over them.
The range includes:
Purity Clay Mask – With Eucalyptus, works deep into the pores to purify and mattify oily, shiny skin.
Glow Clay Mask – With Red Algae, exfoliates the skin to illuminate dull, uneven skin tone.
Detox Clay Mask – With Charcoal, acts like a magnet to draw out impurities and clarify normal, congested skin.
As all of them were sold out BUT the Purity clay mask this is the only one I went for. It was in my favour that day though as I have oily skin so this mask is perfect for me.
The packaging definitely draws you in, is very pleasing to the eye but quite bulky. The box the face mask comes in gives the example that the pot the face mask is in is a lot bigger than it actually is. When you open it up its clear to see that the lid is almost the same size as the pot that contains the product. A little deceiving at first but not something that bothered me.
On the box packaging it states that theres up to 10 applications along with a little bit of information on the 3 masks they do and the directions of use. If you turn the box around there is then another side with the information of the 3 pure clays that are in this mask.
Put To The Test
I’ve used this mask five times now so I’ve managed to build up a good opinion of it rather than jumping straight into the conclusion after one use.
I like to apply the mask after cleaning my face and allow it to sit until its completely dry (around 10-15 minutes) and then wash it off with warm water.
Once its applied to my skin, I do notice a little stinging sensation but its one of those feelings that you know isn’t an issue and is just something getting to work. My skin feels comfortable the whole time and once the mask has been removed my face feels tighter (pores!), my skin looks fresh and not as shiny as usual. Being Asian I do struggle with keeping my skin under control when it comes to oil and shine however this mask does that for me all day long for around 4-5 days. (It is recommended that you apply the mask 2-3 times a week so it sounds right!) I’ve even noticed that it draws out blackheads and excess dirt which does wonders for your skin.
Applying makeup after using this mask works like a dream. My foundation sits on my skin better and looks so flawless.
This mask has quickly become a part of my weekly skincare routine (the products I don’t apply daily) and I’ll carry on using it and raving about it for as long as I can. Some others even use all three masks by “multi-masking” in the areas they need that specific treatment on their face (I definitely plan on doing this once I’ve got the other two!) Some even say its a dupe for the Glam Glow masks which aren’t cheap.
Oh, did I forget to mention… The mask only cost £5.00 (introductory price – £7.99 after) buy it HERE.
Have you tried any of the pure clay masks yet? What did you think?
Lots of Love, Debra-Bow xxx
