I received a sample of this clay mask from L’Oreal and it had enough for two (could have stretched it to three) uses and I was really happy with it! (Although it was sent to me for free, all of my opinions are my own.) I have tried their purifying clay mask before and I was very happy with the result from that so my expectations were high. I used a brush to apply it to my face and it went on in a thin, smooth layer. I think it has been the easiest application I have ever experienced with a clay mask and I truly enjoyed how it felt on my skin.
I noticed that the layer I had on dried fairly quickly but I decided to keep the mask on my face for the entire duration of the suggested time that was 10 minutes. It stiffened up my face like a clay mask would and I found it a bit uncomfortable because I couldn’t smile and I definitely couldn’t frown without it feeling like I was cracking my entire face up.
The mask contains charcoal and other detoxifying ingredients and I could see it attacking the blackheads on my nose, drying in small circles around them and it honestly felt a bit weird. My nose did look clearer when I washed it off though so it definitely must have done something to it. I would have showed a before and after picture but blackheads and all of that makes me feel all queasy and squeamish.
When I rinsed the mask off of my face, I was greeted with the softest feeling skin that I have ever felt in my whole life. My face felt like it was new and I was sad to have finished my second application already, definitely wanting more of this great mask. After using roughly 50 different kinds of sheet masks last year, I feel like this is the year of the clay mask for me and I am really glad I got to test this one out! I would definitely purchase this on my own if I am in need of a face mask in the future and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to give their face a good detox treatment.
Have you tried any of the clay masks from L’Oreal? What did you think of them?
