I have an obsession when it comes to face masks, and I probably use them more often that I should. I try a lot of masks for my blog, but I love the whole therapeutic process of applying and wearing a face mask, and that they can make an instant difference to my skin. If I had to choose, sheet masks are my favourite format for face masks but they tend to be for hydrating, plumping or brightening the skin. I my skin’s breaking out or looking congested, I tend to reach for a cream or clay mask with the GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment or the GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglecfoliate Treatment Mask being my favourites. The L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks have been around for a couple of years now, but I’ve never tried any of them. Superdrug were offering a L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks trial pack as a gift with purchase when you purchased three L’Oreal products which was fab as I was buying three L’Oreal products anyway, and the trial pack is £7.49 to purchase on its own.
The L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks trial pack contains three plastic pods containing three of the Pure Clay masks in 10ml sizes. It’s not great value if you were to purchase it at £7.49 as you can get one full size mask for £7.99 for 50ml of product, but it’s so handy to be able to try three of the masks in one set.
There are now five different L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks; Glow, Purity, Detox, Bright and Blemish Rescue, and the three versions within this set are the original three; Glow, Purity and Detox.
The Pure Clay mask range was created with multimasking in mind, where you can use multiple types of face mask on the face at once to treat your different skin concerns at the same time, which is why this set is a great way to try the multimasking trend.
I’ve used all three of the masks in the set and each 10ml pod gave two generous full face applications, but I did have to wrap each pod in cling film inbetween uses to prevent them drying out, as they’re not resealable once you’ve removed the foil lid. If you prefer a more sheerer layer of mask, I reckon you could make these pods go even further. The three Pure Clay masks each contain the following 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.
L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks
“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.”
“For the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with eucalyptus extract, known for its purifying properties. The creamy texture works deep into the pores, leaving skin purified and matte-looking, without drying it out.”
“For the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with charcoal, which acts like a magnet to draw out impurities. The creamy texture detoxifies the skin’s surface by cleansing deep into the pores, leaving the skin looking clarified and beautified without drying it out.”
I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of these masks before? Do you have a favourite?
