L'Oreal Clay Masks

If your skin needs some TLC then turn to these £5 masks from L'Oreal

I have loved a face mask since I mixed my first clay mask back at college 16 years ago. I remember my favourite being rose water and chamomile as it was the only one that didn't leave my skin bring pink and smelt amazing. I have now grown up to appreciate a face mask not for pleasant smells but for what benefits it actually brings to my skin (or helps draw out of it in some cases).
I have tried hundreds of masks from a high price point to a low; from peel off to basically burn your skin off and I always come back to a good old clay. 

Earlier this spring saw L'Oreal launched 3 new clay masks to their skin care range and with a price tag of only £5 they are an affordable addition to your existing skincare regime. 
Within the range are Purity, Detox and Glow. 

Purity contains 3 clays to draw out impurities and allow the skin to breath and leaves your skin with a matte texture that is non drying perfect for oily/congested skins. 

Detox: Along side the 3 clays there is black charcoal know and used for centuries due to its oil drawing action and also spot prevention. This mask works deep into the pores and detoxes you skin due to the deep cleansing action. 

Glow: Contains red algae to brighten and apricot seeds to exfoliate and will leave dull skin glowing. 

The Test Patch 

If you are not sure on what mask is best for you then try one of these handy test patches. Simply remove a patch and apply to your skin in the designated areas and match to your mask. 

From my test patch below you can see that my skin in the T-Zone is very oily while other areas could be oily or detox. I opted for the Purity clay mask to drawn out any impurities and leave my skin with a matte texture.

Apply a thin layer of your chosen mask to cleansed skin or if you are using a combination of masks then apply to specific areas. Leave on your skin for 5 - 10 minutes. You will feel you skin tighten as the clay mask dries on the skin. Using a warm damp face cloth press onto your skin to allow the mask to loosen on your skin and wipe away without pulling at the skin. 

After my mask my skin didn't feel tight from dryness but soft and hydrated without the greasiness my skin usually has after only a few minutes. 

I use this mask once weekly for my skin but for more problematic skin this can be used 2-3 times weekly and at just £5 will see you through around 10 applications. 

Complete your skincare routine with your chosen moisturiser.
