L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks | Review

This is hardly a secret, but I'm a sucker for skincare and I'm always excited to try out new releases & popular products - I love putting them to the test and seeing if they're worth the hype! One of the most talked about products recently has been the new range of Pure Clay face masks by L'Oreal, and when I saw it on offer for £5 a pot in Boots (RRP £7.99 each), I bought two and couldn't wait to try them out!

The L'Oreal Pure Clay range consist of three different masks:
Pure Clay Purity Mask - To Purify & Mattify
Pure Clay Detox Mask - To Detoxify & Clarify 
Pure Clay Glow Mask - To Brighten & Exfoliate

These masks are made from a blend of 3 clays; Kaolin, which is known to absorb impurities and excess sebum, Montmorillonite, a mineral rich clay which helps in removing imperfections, and Ghassoul, which helps to clarify the complexion. I personally have normal to dry skin, which can be lacklustre, so I decided to go for the Detox Mask & the Glow Mask, rather than the Purity Mask which I think would be better suited to more combination and oily skin.

Each pot consists of 50ml of product and claims that you can get up to 10 uses per pot. Personally, I feel that a little bit of product goes a long way and the masks apply pretty opaquely on the skin - it isn't streaky and the product is pretty pigmented for what it is. I reckon it would last way more than 10 uses! I also think it's great that L'Oreal offer different masks which are catered towards different skin concerns, and for me, it works very well for 'multitasking'. I find the Detox mask extremely effective, especially around my nose, whereas the Glow mask is great for rejeneuvating my skin all over. I use the different masks depending on how my skin is feeling on the day, and so far, I've found them extremely effective in doing what they claim to do.

The Glow Mask (orange) contains red algae, which has brightening properties. I love this mask because it's consistency; it's really creamy and smooth, but it contains micro beards which gives it an almost scrub-like texture - it's essentially a 2-in-1! The Detox Mask which is grey in colour, contains charcoal, which helps to draw out impurities from within the skin. When I got back from America, I came back with really dull, lack lustre skin and I feel that including the Pure Clay masks in my skincare regime has been a useful staple in my skincare routine. I've been using the masks for almost a month now, and in that time, I've noticed that my skin has been looking a lot more smooth, clear and radiant. 

For rest results, I would recommend using a good face mask atleast once or twice a week. The Pure Clay masks a worth a try if you're on the hunt for an affordable, yet effective drugstore mask.

Have you tried these yet? How did you get on?
