What the brand says: The mask contains charcoal that combines with the natural clays to draw out impurities and cleanse deep into the skin, leaving the skin detoxified and clarified. The creamy texture detoxifies the skin’s surface by cleansing deep into the pores. Skin feels pure and clean.
MY TAKE ON LOREAL PURE CLAY DETOX MASK
Packaging: The mask comes in a standard glass jar with screw lid characteristic of loreal masks. I find jar packaging quite unhygienic since you have to dip your fingers in it, also there is no spoon or applicator provided. The jar is quite sturdy and is easy to carry around.
Texture: The mask is quite thick and creamy and spreads easily. Little quantity goes a long way.
How I use and staying power: To use, apply a thin layer all over the face. Leave for 5-10 minutes as you feel the clay hardening and working. Remove with a wet towel or warm water.
I love using clay masks especially the ones that come with charcoal as an active ingredient because my skin is acne-prone and I always have a shiny T-zone and clay masks work the best! I have been using this mask every 3 days for almost a month now and I feel this is the right time to post a review. So here it goes-
The mask is very easy to apply because of the creamy texture and very little quantity goes a long way. It dries and tightens after about 15 minutes but I like to keep it for longer to soak up all the excess oil. The mask once rinsed off leaves skin soft and clean. Skin definitely feels fresh and pure. After using the mask for about 2-3 times, I got some new eruptions on the face but they subsided on their own. Also I feel I still get breakouts which hasn’t changed, only clogged pores around the chin and mouth seem to have reduced. I see no major difference in my skin and the matte-effect too is temporary. I love using the mask prior to applying makeup and it helps control oiliness around my T-zone for a longer period of time. The mask is great to reduce oiliness and clean the pores to prevent clogging. Not the best mask in my case as I have used many better masks that give great results especially this glam glow mask >>
