I was so excited to try the new L’oreal face masks, with 3 in the range all aiming to target different skin problems! The idea is that you buy all 3 and do what they call a multi-mask (I think that’s what it’s called if not I think it’s good enough) where you apply 3 masks at once but on different parts of your face to match up with their needs. I’ll save all that for another post as unfortunately, I could only get my hands on one of them The Pure Clay Detox Mask. I was going to wait until I had the other two but I got impatient! The Detox Mask includes black charcoal which is known to draw out all the bad stuff that is causing your skin to not be at its best
So I used a face brush to apply the mask as face masks are messy at the best of times but a black face mask… Plus using a face brush is just a much more enjoyable experience. I left it on for the recommended time of 10 minutes, it felt much like any other face mask, tight. Nothing uncomfortable just what you come to expect. I wasn’t looking forward to taking it off I have to admit however I was pleasantly surprised to find that it came off so well when I used a face cloth… it took no time at all.
My face felt nice and soft immediately after it was washed off, it was a little blotchy, I’m not sure if that due to rubbing my face.
Another important thing to mention is that it is strongly fragranced… which I know might not suit everyone, personally, it doesn’t bother me.
My face feel still as soft as last night however I have noticed the appearance of blackheads on my nose and that my pores are a lot larger! I’m guessing this is at the work of the mask and is drawing out all impurities!
I was worried that the mask would make my skin a little dry as this week I’ve had a bit of a nightmare in regards to dryness but I’ll go even as close to saying the dryness has decreased overnight! hurray!
I have a few wee blemishes and spots but they are very calm and very nonoffensive and would be easily covered up with foundation. I decided to go make-up free today so not to aggravate or prolong any of the blemishes etc…
I’m really excited about the very first L’Oreal facemasks and as soon as I get the other 2 there will be a multimasking post up for you all!
