I feel like every blogger and her mum has spoken about one of the three face masks that L’Oreal have brought out recently. Made with a blend of three clays and one extra ingredient, these have been snatched up by bloggers everywhere and I had to give into the hype and grab one myself.
I opted for the Glow Mask, although it was a close call between this one and the Purity Mask, and tested it out so that I could share it with you.
There are actually three masks available – Glow (to brighten and exfoliate), Purity (to purify and mattify), and Detox (to detoxify and clarify). All three masks contain Koalin, Montmorillonite and Ghassoul, which are three different types of clay all used for varying reasons including absorbing excess oil, clarifying the complexion and eliminating imperfections. I bought the Glow Mask as I am loving exfoliating masks at the moment, to really get into my skin and wash away any grime. The extra ingredient on top of the clays in the glow mask is red algae, which is known for its brightening properties.
Like most clay masks, this dried down, which means you can get on with life as it does its job, then after around 10 minutes you simply wipe it off with a damp cloth. As this is an exfoliating mask I really massaged it into my face with wet fingers after the ten minutes to ensure a full scrub, but this is just an extra step that I like to take with these sorts of masks.
This mask did leave my face with a healthy glow, and didn’t react to my face at all which can be quite sensitive to clay masks. After a few uses I’m highly impressed and it does what it says on the tin, which doesn’t occur as often as you’d hope. I’m definitely up for picking up the other two now that I know that this does what it claims to. You can pick this up for £7.99 in Boots, which is a steal for what it does, especially as you can get 10 uses (or more if you multimask) out of it.
