Products that Work: L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another product review.  I've been taking my time this Summer to really test out products thoroughly so that I can give you the real deal.  Today I have a product recommendation that we can all use.  I'm a huge proponent of skincare and when I find a good deal, it's even better.  Check it out!

I had an opportunity to test out L'Oreal Paris' new line of Pure-Clay Masks.  Out of the line of three masks, I fell in love with their Detox and Brighten Mask.  I've been doing a lot of traveling this summer, and after tons of sun exposure, activity and junk food, I definitely needed a Detox.  I've heard great things about charcoal masks lately and I was really excited to try L'Oreal's take on it.

Product Claims:
The masks contains three pure clays plus charcoal to remove dirty and impurities.  Dull skin becomes more radiant, impurities are removed and you're left with healthier looking skin.  

The directions advise you to apply to dry skin, avoiding the eye and lip area.  You're to leave it on for 10-15 minutes and remove with water.  Repeat 3 times per week for best results.

The mask as soon as I applied it, still wet

My experience:
I've used this mask several times over the last few weeks.  I find myself using it only when my skin looks more dull such as after a vacation or about once a week.  I applied the mask to my skin and immediately felt it tightening as it dried.  I saw my pore spots through the mask as it appeared that it was pulling impurities out of my skin.  After washing my face, I instantly saw results.  My skin looked radiant, brighter and it felt clean and tighter.  I think this is a great addition to your skincare routine.  There are times when your face definitely needs a reboot and this mask does that.

I loved the mask so much that I immediately had both my husband and a friend of mine try it.  They both loved it.  I tried to take a before and after picture using the mask but the camera did not detect the radiance that my eyes saw in the mirror.  Nevertheless, I definitely recommend this product.  It retails for under $10 at both Target and Wal-Mart and you can find this in your local beauty aisle.
