Every now and then I like having a little pampering session. Lately, as a face mask, I have been using the Loreal Pure-Clay Masque. Today I’m doing a review on their Exfoliate and Refining Red Algae Clay Mask.
The Loreal Exfoliate and Refining Red Algae Clay Mask is described as a 3 pure clays and red algae mask that exfoliates, unclogs and tightens pores in just 10 minutes. The pure clays and volcanic rock will exfoliate dead skin on face and smooth surface imperfections. “Exfoliate & Refines Pores Pure-Clay Mask addresses rough skin and deep clogged pores on face to reveal a polished, pore-minimized and smooth complexion. Immediately skin texture appears refined and smooth. Pore are visibly minimized. Facial pore cleansing removes dead cells, dirt and oil from skin. Imperfections are less visible. Not only will skin feel as though it can breathe, it will be healthy looking with a beautiful glow.” This is the description on their website.
This mask is supposed to be suitable for all skin types. To use it apply and even layer to clean dry skin, avoiding eye and lip area. Leave on for 10 minutes and then remove with water in circular motions to exfoliate. It is recommended to use 3 times a week.
Packaging and Price
The product is packaged in a 1.7 oz. (48g) crystal jar and a plastic cap. The packaging feels luxurious and does not seem like a typical drugstore mask. Even though the packaging is beautiful, I wouldn’t say is travel friendly because it’s quite heavy. The price is $12.99, which is a little expensive considering this is a drugstore brand.
Experience and Results
I applied this as they recommend 3 times a week for 10 to 15 minutes. When taking off the mask I did it in circular motions to exfoliate my skin. After taking the mask off my skin is significantly softer and I do see a difference in my skin after 3 to 4 weeks of using this, but I don’t find that it minimized my pores as the Loreal website suggest. I really enjoyed this product and I look forward to try the Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Treatment Mask and the Pure-Clay Mask Purify & Mattify Treatment Mask.
