L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Face Mask Review

Hello Everyone,

I have seen this mask a lot on social media with tons of mixed reviews so I decided I would try it out and see if I thought it was worth all the hype. I purchased this face mask a couple of weeks ago from Penneys/Primark for €8, it is usually on sale in pharmacies for €11 or more so definitely check out your nearest Penneys/Primark before picking it up anywhere else! All in all with the price, I was very happy with it as I have seen face masks being sold for a lot more than €8 or€11!

As for the packaging of the product. I actually really like it! I like the clear glass so that you can see the product inside and I love the mint green lid and white that is on the packaging. I think all colours go well and compliment each other well, I feel like it gives off a clean and calm feel but maybe that’s just me 😛


The Application

I have used this mask a good few times in the last few weeks, usually 2/3 times a week, which I think is a good amount to be able to review it for you guys. When applying the mask, I use an E.L.F. angled foundation brush as I find it applies it really evenly without it being streaky. I apply it on my forehead, nose and cheeks and also my chin. As the mask starts to dry it will begin to turn to a lighter grey and will start to harden. I leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, pretty much until it is completely hard. I then take a wet face cloth and take the mask off with cold or hot water.

The results

Once the face mask is off, I find that the mask leaves my face feeling very smooth, my face looks brighter and a lot cleaner. I didn’t notice this immediately with the mask but over time, after a few uses. I noticed that my skin looked a lot brighter and awake when I wasn’t wearing makeup. It’s not a difference that is that noticeable to others but I did feel a bit of a difference myself. Overall I like the mask, I don’t think it is the best one out there and if you are looking for a mask to get rid of blackheads, I don’t think this is the one for you, but if you are looking to brighten your face and make it look more clean and awake, then I would suggest you give it a try and see how it works.

So that’s it for todays post! Let me know in the comments what your favourite face mask is and also let me know if you have ever tried this mask and what your thoughts are on it! See you in my next post.

Thank you for reading,

    I totally agree with you. I actually bought this hoping it would help me get rid of my blackheads and white heads as that’s what it says it would do an that’s why I was disappointed when it didn’t do that! I did notice that it makes my skin clearer overall but again it doesn’t suit my dry skin at all so I have given up on this product haha!

    • August 19, 2017 / 2:51 pm

      Yeah it definitely doesn’t get rid blackheads but its good to brighten the skin so thats allI really use it for 🙂

  3. August 19, 2017 / 1:49 pm

    Sounds good, def want to try if it can brighten my dull complexion!

    • August 19, 2017 / 2:51 pm

      Yeah it really helps me with that 🙂

  4. August 19, 2017 / 2:58 pm

    I tried this while a had a few blemishes, and this mask litteraly suck the whitehead out of them! It was so cool! I quite their range of masks, and I’m looking for the new blue and yellow one 🙂

    • August 19, 2017 / 5:21 pm

    I wish I could use these masks but unfortunately my skin is a little too sensitive and it broke me out. I think my favorite masks are the Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Masque and the Fresh Rose Mask! Thanks for sharing! Xoxo

    • August 20, 2017 / 11:59 am

      Awh no! Oh I’ll have to have a look at them! Thank you💕

    I always prefer the fancy peel off ones but this one does sound worth trying out. It looks like there is a lot in there though, I’m not sure I would use it regularly enough

    • August 21, 2017 / 10:26 am

      Yeah it feels like it does way more when you have to peel them off😊

  15. August 21, 2017 / 11:24 am

    I was about to buy this yesterday! I’m glad I found your review! I would’ve been disappointed if it didn’t take out my blackheads! Thanks for the great and honest review💞

    • August 21, 2017 / 12:08 pm

      No problem! Thank you! Yeah I was disappointed about that, it was the one thing I wanted it to do 🙂

    • September 13, 2017 / 9:41 am

      No the scent is one thing I’m not a fan of, it has a very floral scent so it probably wouldn’t be very good for sensitive skin 🙂

  16. October 5, 2017 / 7:47 pm

    I love this mask, it’s also very good for people with very sensitive skin (i’m that person who is allergic to like everything) and this has never caused my skin to flare up x

    • October 9, 2017 / 10:17 am

      Yeah I agree, it doesn’t cause my skin to flare up either and I have rally sensitive skin

  17. October 22, 2017 / 7:01 pm

    Maybe I’ll get this!! I’ve been looking for a great mask!!
