Hi Everyone! Sorry for the late post, but I JUST got home from the Butler University/Providence College basketball game with my dad. Unfortunately, our Butler Bulldogs didn’t pull off a W, but I love being able to spend any time with my dad. And my aunt and uncle (a PC Alum) were able to come, so it was a fun day all around!
Tonight’s #MaskMonday is a new Pure-Clay mask from L’Oréal. I have used their masks before, but this one might be my favorite. You can buy it from Ulta Beauty here.
The mask that I used tonight was the Exfoliate & Refine Clay mask. One of the things that drew me to it was that it has exfoliating in it. So many masks just sit on your skin, but this one as I rubbed it in I got that feeling of exfoliation too.
The mask is pretty easy to use. You completely wash your skin and pat dry. Apply a thin layer along your face. Wait 10-15 minutes. (I waited 15 because I almost forgot it was on!) Wash off with warm water.
A few things I loved
- It’s so light! – Most mask are heavy on your skin, but this one I almost forgot I had on besides the light tingle. I could even move my face while it was on, which is super rare!
- It doesn’t smell atrocious! – Let’s be honest, some masks STINK. This one does have a slight smell, but you barely notice it after a minute or so.
- Exfoliation! – So many masks take off dead skin, but this one you can feel it working with the exfoliation. That’s the red algae extract, which gives it its red color.
- How your skin feels when it comes off! – Your skin feels so smooth when you wash it off. I don’t want to put anything else on my skin for the rest of the night. And my skin didn’t feel sticky or tacky like it did with the paper mask from last week.
The downside? I wish it came pre-portioned. When they come in the glass containers, I’m always worried I either use too much or not enough. While they say apply a “thin layer,” obviously this is all a matter of opinion.
Overall, this mask gets an 9/10. I actually like it better than my normal mask from L’Oréal, which I NEVER thought would happen. I definitely will be using this one again!
Next week I’m going to trial the Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask!
Any questions, let me know!
