When the L’Oreal pure clay masks were released I was quite excited to try them out. What I didn’t realise was that the whole world and their mother would too. My twitter feed has been full of posts about these little pots of goodness. It may not be the most original blog post idea, but I thought I would share my thoughts anyway.
I wasn’t fortunate enough to get my hands on all 3 as they were sold out in the Boots that I went into, however I did manage to pick up the glow mask. Now the idea of buying all 3 may sound a little excessive, but they are ideal for multi-masking which is something I think I need to introduce into my skincare routine. I personally would say that I have a variety of skin problems that I don’t think one mask will tackle on its own. So the idea of multitasking is something that I think my skin would benefit from.
That being said I have tried the glow mask a few times already as I was too excited to wait till I found the others. I absolutely love the colour of this one. It has red algae as its key ingredient giving it that gorgeous copper colour #bloggerheaven. It has been great for gentle exfoliation, helping to reduce pore size and the little red bumps I get from my rosacea.
As I mentioned the key ingredient in this one is red algae, which known for its brightening properties. It’s also packed with 3 pure clays – Koalin, Montmorillonite and Ghassoul each of which offer great skin benefits.
I like to apply mine with an old foundation brush (a clean one of course) purely because I don’t want to get it stuck under my nails. Plus I find I can apply it in a more even layer so I don’t waste any. I then leave it on for about 10 minutes before gently massaging it in to exfoliate my skin before rinsing off, in the same way I did with the Lush face mask.
L’Oreal have definitely found a gap in the market by offering a great, purse friendly alternative to some popular high end face masks such as Glam glow. Even at the full price of £7.99 (mine was on offer for £5), I think thats suitable for all age groups and budgets. The glass packaging and quality is also great for the price you pay.
