Beauty: L’oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask review

Once upon a time, there was a girl who used to rush to the salon every first week of the month to get a pampering facial done. Then the girl became a mum, went back to work and realised the only luxury she could afford was—sleep!

Welcome to the world of busy mums and working ladies who are spinning several different plates and often have no time to take off for themselves. The girl in the above story is me (no prizes for guessing) and like most of busy mums I hardly have time to go and get a proper facial done but that however does not mean I cannot take care of the situation. Like any resourceful mum, I would say the answer is home bound facials. Perhaps not as pampering as it sounds but definitely worth the effort.

L'oreal Paris Clay Mask Review

 

Few days ago, I tested the pure clay mask from L’oreal Paris. The range comes in a pretty glass jar and has three varieties: Purify & Mattify Mask (Green mask), Detox & Brightening Mask (Charcoal) and Exfoliate & Refine Mask (Red). I opted for the Red one due to my skin issues but you can use all three together as well. The masks are made of three mineral Clays: Kaolinite, Montmorillonite and Ghassoul. The mask with red algae is heaven sent for oily skin.

My skin is also prone to breakouts. This helps in gently exfoliating it and giving it a nice natural glow. My skin also starts resembling an oil field after few days hence this is helping me in balancing it and giving it a sheen without any fuss. It also passed the husband test–when you test something and your busy husband sees the difference without you a dropping a hint! This is not a made-up test but a great litmus test for major products in my home. Lol! Needless to say, I am ecstatic about finding this product.

My second favourite is Indian healing facial clay made of fuller’s earth (taken in a different pot in the photo) Fuller’s Earth is an age old beauty/ facial ingredient from the sub-continent and is known absorbing excess oil, removing scars and treating acne. I mix a small amount with rose water, apply for 15-20 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. The result is clearer and healthier skin in minutes.

Last but not the least is the Ultimelt by Soap and Glory. This creamy mask comes with a towel. For getting the maximum benefit out of this, apply some of the cream and massage it. Next, warm the towel a bit using warm water and keep it on your face. Leave it for five minutes and gently take the cream off. If you wish, you can also steam your face before putting the towel on your face.  For £10, this is definitely a good value for money.

So, you see ladies so what if you are crushing it in the boardroom as well as the drawing room with your kids. There is definitely no reason for you not to feel and look like million bucks even though you feel shattered and exhausted for most part of the day 😉

Thank you for reading. Hope you enjoyed this post. Have a lovely Friday and weekend 🙂 Don’t forget to follow me. You can also follow me on Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
