Makeup is fun! makeup doesn't judge! Man or woman, gay or straight, regardless of age or race - it doesn't matter! DO YOU! Do what makes you happy! Wear no makeup atall or wear full on smokey eye, huge wing, loads of glitter and a bright red overdrawn lip to the supermarket if that's what makes YOU happy!

Loreal Clay Masks Review

When I heard L'Oréal were releasing facemasks I counted down the days until they were released in the UK! I am a massive fan of facemasks, my favourite being Glamglow masks. Unfortunately Glamglow masks are a luxury item I use sparsely due to the price tag of £50 for 50mls compared to the L'Oréal masks which retail for £5 for 50mls.

There are three masks in this new range. The Purity mask, Detox mask and Glow mask. When I got these masks to review I wanted to make sure I gave them a thorough testing before posting my thoughts. I have used them numerous times over the past few weeks and each time have grown to love them more. I have used each one by itself and also used each mask together, putting each one on the problem area it was designed for (known as multi-masking) as recommended by L'Oréal.

Detox mask - This mask does an amazing job of clearing out your pores and leaving the skin very smooth. It dries very quickly when applied. It could not be considered a relaxing mask to wear due to how tight it feels on your skin. It can be quite difficult to remove meaning you need to rub at your skin more than you probably should but the result is worth it. Skin is very red after being removed (as seen in picture below).

Purity mask - Very similar to the detox mask. Dries very quickly but not quite as uncomfortable to wear as the detox mask. It also pulls out impurities from the skin and reduces the look of pores. It Leaves the skin looking matte but not as dry as with the Detox mask and is also easier to remove.

Glow mask - This mask is the most comfortable to wear out of the three. It leaves the skin looking clean and healthy with a beautiful glow. When removing this mask it really exfoliates the skin giving it a good cleanse. skin feels very hydrated after use.

My favourite way to wear these masks is putting the detox mask in my T-zone and the glow mask all over the rest of my face. As with all my skincare I always apply with a clean makeup brush to reduce the risk of spreading germs which may cause spots.

As with all skincare, every product works different on each person depending on skin type, texture etc. So I decided to get some of my lovely readers to review these masks for me. Below you will find some of their unedited opinions.

Product tester 1:
"Hey Autumn, so I have tried the masks for the first time and wow, my skin feels so good and amazing. I feel fresh and revitalised, also think it may have reduced the darkness under my eyes. I love it and it smells awesome, might just buy the three".

Product Tester 2:
"I have used these face mask twice now and have seen improvements already. When I get up I always have to moisturise as have dry patches well I haven't had these since using the masks. I used all 3 at once on different areas. They all smelled really fresh. The pink one had a different texture (was rough) than the other 2 but all applied well and came off without any problems. Skin felt silky smooth afterwards and I mentioned the Dry skin patches gone so would def say hydrates skin too. Dark circles under eyes were brightened up as well. I would def purchase this in future and at £5 a bargain I would say"

Product Tester 3:
'L'Oreal Pure Clay Mask - Glow
The scent is amazing reminds me of clove sweeties or aromatic sweeties. The mask gives a slight warm flushed feeling and doesn't set so was ideal for wearing whilst in the bath. Skin felt very comfortable and had no sensitivity reaction. After 15 minutes I massaged the exfoliating grains into the skin then removed the mask with a warm facecloth.... My skin before was parched from a day in the sun but after using this gorgeous smelling red mask my skin felt the texture had improved and looked a lot brighter. Perfect mask to use before applying makeup for a night out or special occasion. I have used glamglow before and would say this mask has a lot of similarities the main difference being the cost'

There is no denying these facemasks are amazing value for money. They do exactly what they are meant to do and certainly give higher end brands a run for their money.
