I’m a little late on the bandwagon for this one but today I’m doing a review on the L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask. There’s actually three masks in this range with the other two being a detox mask and a purity mask but neither of those appealed to me as much as this one did. The L’Oreal Pure Claw Glow Mask claims to brighten and exfoliate the skin without drying it out. As someone with ridiculously dry and sensitive skin that the last claim piqued my interest as most exfoliating products are too abrasive for me. So, does this one do the trick?
The L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask is a combination of three “pure clays” (hence the name) along with red algae which L’Oreal says is a well known brightening agent. I’ve never heard of that before I read the box but then I’m not usually googling red algae. Even without the tub straight up telling you that this is designed for exfoliating, the beaded texture of this face mask shows that pretty well. It feels like any other daily exfoliating product on the skin but slightly thicker and creamier which allows it to spread easier.
The best thing about this product for me is how, when it dries, it doesn’t feel tight like most other clay masks and doesn’t make it near impossible to move your face. It isn’t uncomfortable at all during the 5-10 minutes wear time although I only use it once a week rather than the 2 or 3 that the tub recommends.
As for the actual results, the L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask does make my face feel smoother and delivers on its promise for not drying out the skin. It does also promise to tighten pores over the course of a few weeks however I’ve not seen that yet but maybe that’s because I’m not using the mask as often as it says to? My skin does look brighter however, I think (I find “brightness” and “glow” to be difficult things to judge), and has actually helped some acne scarring I have on my cheeks, too!
So the L’oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask is a plus for me and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a specifically exfoliating mask or a mask that doesn’t dehydrate.
You can buy the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Mask from Boots for £7.99.
