Today’s post is about probably the most popular face masks in the past few months, the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Masks. Some of you may know that I’ve been struggling with my skin condition for a few weeks now, so I was really excited to try these masks. As a clay mask fan, I had high hopes for them and I have to say, I’m incredibly surprised because they did much more than I expected! Even the people around me started telling me how radiant and smoother my skin looked.
The masks come in glass jars and each pot contains 50 ml product, it’s written that you can get about 10 uses from each pot. There are three types of clays with different ingredients to achieve different skincare benefits. The three clays are: Kaolin (which is known to absorb impurities and excess sebum), Montmorillonite (eliminates imperfections) and Ghassoul (clarifies).
It’s suggested to apply a thin layer on cleansed face, avoiding the eye area, leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then remove.
The face masks all smell quite strong, personally, I don’t find it unpleasant, I quite like the scents but if you’re too sensitive, you should have that in mind.
I feel like the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Masks have different names everywhere but in Norway they’re called: Purify Mask* (green), Glow Mask* (grey), and Exfo Mask* (red).
Purify Face Mask* (It’s called Purity in the UK) – This face mask contains three pure clays and also Eucalyptus to purify the skin. You can really feel the Eucalyptus scent when you apply it. The Purify Face Mask* has a nice creamy texture that is really easy to apply. I prefer to use this one mainly on my T-zone, as it can be a bit drying on my cheeks. There is a slight tingling and cooling sensation which is very nice and soothing. This is the most difficult one to wash off, in my opinion but I love the effect of it. It leaves my skin mattified and really soft.
Glow Face Mask* (Detox in the UK) – The charcoal one and probably my favourite of all three. It’s easy to apply, I use it all over my face, it doesn’t dry out my skin and just makes it luminous and super clean. It draws out all the impurities, it feels tight when it dries but doesn’t make my face feel stripped after removing it. I’m just left with replenished and luminous skin. Love this face mask and I use it up to three times a week.
Exfo Face Mask* (Glow in the UK) – This face mask contains Red Algae which is known for its brightening properties. I’ve actually heard some negative reviews about it but so far, I haven’t experienced anything bad or disappointing with this face mask. I quite enjoy using it once a week all over my face because it’s creamy but also slightly gritty and acts like an exfoliant. Contrary to what I’ve read, for me this is an easy to wash off face mask that leaves my skin toned and with refined texture.
I’m really happy I got the chance to try all the three L’Oréal Pure-Clay Masks and I will definitely repurchase once I’ve run out. They are now some of my favourite and most-used face masks not only from the drugstore but in general. The glass packaging feels luxurious, the product itself is amazing and I’m in love with the face masks. They are great on their own, it’s also quite fun multi-masking with them. Me and mum often have these pamper sessions on weekends and we enjoy applying different masks on different areas of our faces. She loves the masks, as well, although we have different skin types.
