The craze of face masks has taken an entirely new level thanks to L’Oréal and their new Pure Clay Masks. I was in Boots during the week and seen that they had an offer on them, each mask is currently £5 each which is an absolute bargain. I initially picked up the Purity and Glowing products but ended up going back for the Detox mask as I wanted to try out all three. Each one has a different job to do regarding your skin. I’ve tried all of them and even though it’s still very early days I’m pleasantly surprised with how my skin feels. I already have a strong skincare regime (you can read it here) but I was missing that extra step in my routine to give me skin some TLC.
A POWERFUL BLEND OF 3 PURE CLAYS:
KOALIN: A highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum.
MONTMORILLONITE: Rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections.
GHASSOUL: A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify complexion.
The most ‘natural’ option of the three, this mask is designed to purify and mattify your skin. Great for those of you like me who have oily prone skin. One of the main ingredients in this mask is the powerful Eucalyptus which is designed to treat the skin to a spa like experience. As much as I have enjoyed using all three masks, this one would be my least favourite as it doesn’t give me the best result compared to the other two. If you already have great skin and just want to pamper it, then I would suggest giving this a go. I have certain skin concerns that I want to focus on so I need something a little stronger.
My favourite of the three, the Detox mask extracts any dirt, makeup and helps clear out your pores. The Charcoal infused ingredient worked wonders for my skin. I put it on my chin, nose and the apples of my cheeks as this is where my pores are congested and often need the most attention. It has a thicker consistency than the other two and applies like an absolute dream, I tend to leave this on for a little longer to get those pores clean and fresh. Sometimes in the past when I’ve used clay masks they have left my skin feeling dry. This one however wasn’t harsh on my skin which I loved, definitely a firm favourite of mine.
The ultimate mask for these ‘hot’ summer months. If you’re always searching for products that give your skin that radiant glow, I would suggest starting off with this one. I suffer from bad texture issues and I have Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) under my eyes. I’ve tried endlessly to find something to minimise it and I understand that the under eye dilemma will never leave me but the texture on the rest of my face can be cleared. I have hormonal skin and unfortunately blemishes come and go but the texture issues annoys me so much! Using this one along with my skincare routine, I can honestly feel a difference. My cheeks are not as bumpy and rough as they use to be, I still have some texture left but the large majority have went away. I can go makeup free and when I apply my makeup it doesn’t draw attention to any problem areas.
Have any of you tried these yet? I’m so surprised at how much I like them. Without sounding like a snob, I thought they would have been mediocre with the drugstore price. However I can’t fault the quality of them, I’ll definitely be repurchasing the Detox and Glowing masks again.
