Beauty | L'oreal Clay Masks | Review

This post has been a long time coming but I wanted to really try out the masks and when I thought I'd got a really good account of the three masks L'oreal went a stumped me by adding a further two to the collection so I wanted to do a round up post on them all.

I've seen a few blog posts which review certain ones but I wanted to review all of them in the range as I think it's important to be able to give a wide range of information and after all my skin is problematic and changes through out the month so I always need a different type of mask depending on my skin.

I've been absolutely loving L'oreal recently both their skin care and their make up so I was super excited to give their clay masks a try. I find a mask is the only way I can rescue and make sure my skin is kept under control.

Each pot contains at least 10 applications but I've found I've got way more applications out of each one than that as long as you don't go overboard with the product you'll get a lot more out of each pot too.

Each pot is a blend of 3 pure clays with then added ingredients depending on the mask you use. The 3 clays are Koalin which is known to absorb impurities and excess sebum, Montmorillonite which is recognised to helping eliminate imperfections and Ghassoul which is renowned to help clarify complexion. Pretty good base ingredients don't you think?

The five masks in the range are:

  • A detox mask
  • A glow mask
  • A purity mask
  • A bright mask
  • A blemish rescue mask
So pretty much every skin problem covered and the great thing about these masks is you can use them in combination with each other to create a tailor made mask for your skin - we'll talk about that in a minute but lets get into each one.

The purity mask
This is the green one which contains eucalyptus and helps mattify and and purify skin. This is great for using on your T zone or if you have particularly oily skin type as this helps to control the oil without drying your skin out. 

The glow mask
This is the red one which brightens and exfoliates with the help of red algae. This has tiny beads which help gently exfoliate the skin without drying it out or causing harsh damage and leaves skin feeling brighter and fresher.

The detox mask
This is the black mask which detoxifies and clarifies with the help of charcoal. This mask leaves the skin feeling to detoxed and fresh and we all know charcoal is appearing in every beauty product at the moment don't we so there must be something good about it?

The bright mask
This is the yellow one which evens tone and illuminates withe the help of Zuzu lemon. This evens out skin tone buffs away dead skin cells and absorbs excess oil. A good all rounder if you want to try just one of the masks to try I'd recommend grabbing hold of this one first.

The blemish rescue
This is the blue mask and contains marine algae which help unclog blackheads and clear imperfections helping to leave the skin smooth and blemish free. This is my personal favourite as I do have troubled skin this really does work without leaving the skin tight and sore.

So you can apply each of the masks alone for 5-10 minutes or use them in a combination to target specific ares of the face. I'm going to include some guides from L'oreal themselves to give you some idea as to how you can use them.
