Archives For exfoliation

What is it?

This is the second out of the three Clay gel cleansers that L’Oreal released this year. It is orange, so you can tell it will match the orange-y brown clay mask that was good for exfoliation. This is no different, as it is an exfoliating cleanser. It contains three different clays including Moroccan lava clay, just like the other two cleansers, and red algae. It is supposed to stimulate the skin and help with circulation and whatnot.  On their webpage it says it will “exfoliate and refine rough, clogged pores”. When looking at the ingredients, it has pretty much almost identical ingredients as its mask version.

How did it work for me?

First off, I was really put off by the color and consistency because it really looked nasty when you held it in your hand or rubbed it on your face. That is why I have no picture of it on my actual face because it’s just really, really awful to look at. Second, the exfoliation in it is a tiny bit rough. It says on the tube that it is for daily use but I honestly wouldn’t recommend that.

I have the cleansers in rotation where I use one of them each day, so I end up exfoliating every third day and that seems to work fairly well. When I did use it every day it made my skin feel worse and it made me break out here and there because it was too much. If your skin isn’t as sensitive as mine, it could probably work a lot better. I would recommend leaving it on your face for a bit too to let the clay work its magic, or exfoliate and then use one of the other clay masks to get an even better result. I love using this in combination with the black Glow mask.

This one doesn’t have the best scent, but it’s not the worst either, I think the green one wins, or loses that competition. I would recommend this if you want to give your skin a nice exfoliation, just don’t go overboard with it as it can be a bit rough.

Have you tried this cleanser before? Or the mask? What did you think about it?

L’Action Cranberry DIY Mask, which is a powder you mix with water to create your own face mask! It sounded really interesting and I’m looking forward to trying it. ByNoor Shampoo And Conditioner Samples, this is a vegan, cruelty free brand! I have tried their hair oil and I love it so I’m curious to see if their other hair products are just as good.
