I’ve reviewed quite a few clay face masks on Beauty Rant over the last year or so, including the ever hyped L’Oreal Detox Mask and the Blemish Rescue Mask, so I thought it was only right to continue the series with a review of the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Face Mask.
My skin is always at its’ best when I regularly use face masks so as my skin has been a little on the dry side yesterday after all the cold British weather, I thought what better time to use a glow boosting mask!
L’Oreal have some great face masks that are really affordable, this face mask is currently only £5.99 on Amazon which is a steal!
Looking at the Superdrug website, here are the claims:
For the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with red algae extract, known for its brightening properties. The beaded, creamy texture illuminates tone by exfoliating the skin’s surface without drying it out.
3 pure clays + red algae
A powerful blend of 3 pure clays
Kaolin – 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.
Instant and lasting, visible results
Immediately: skin is softer, smoother and brighter.
Use for one week: pores feel tighter, skin texture is refined.
Use after use: skin is visibly transformed, with an even healthy glow
Unlike other exfoliating face masks like The Body Shop Matcha Green Tea Mask, the L’Oreal Glow Mask isn’t overly grainy so it is quite delicate on the skin whilst removing any dead skin when rubbed in circular motions.
Similar to other L’Oreal face masks, it is a very thick mask that is better applied to the face with a brush rather than fingers. It has a gorgeous citrus scent I would bottle if I could, it’s definitely not an unpleasant scent like other masks you get on the market.
Once applied to the face it is very cooling and feels refreshing on the skin. After 10-15 minutes on the skin you gently rub in circular motions then I like to remove the rest with a damp cloth to ensure nothing remains on the skin.
The mask doesn’t set as much as other clay masks where you can’t move your face but you can definitely see from the above picture where oil has been absorbed from my skin.
My skin has definitely felt more even and less textured since using this face mask twice a week. If you’re looking for a more detoxing mask I would recommend their detox mask over this one, but I think for the price I would definitely recommend picking this up 🙂
