Alright so we’ve made it this far, officially the 14th day of masking. Crazy, right?
I can’t even imagine my skin without all the benefits of the amazing masks that I’ve just indulged in and continue to. The compliments I’ve received along the way have been many and it just reiterates the power of dedicating time to taking care of our skin.
This brings me to my final mask of The 7 Day Mask Challenge, and it’s one that I’ve used for quite some time now. Funny enough as I took it out to apply it the other night I realized I had enough for one application left, timing it nicely for the final post of my challenge.
And this mask is…
I discovered the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Masks last year when an influencer on Instagram was posting about her experiences with them, and I honestly couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Overall, they’ve certainly left me satisfied and hungry for more.
From the manafacturers:
- Detoxify and illuminate skin in just 10 minutes,
- Luxurious experience while potent pure clays and charcoals act like a magnet to clean out pores as well as draw out and capture deep impurities (such as dirt, oil and pollution),
- Creamy, non-drying formula leaves skin feeling clean, velvety and rebalanced,
- Addresses dull, tired skin to reveal a purified, even and radiant complexion.
Although everything said above is entirely true, I find the mask itself got a little drying nearer the end of the pot.
I do this mask often for the reason that its a comfortable experience and doesn’t dry out my skin, while purifying it as suggested. However with my recent application (the last one out of the jar) I wasn’t too happy with my skin the following day. I can vouch for the even complexion and purification 100% as that’s how me skin looked and felt, but when applying my makeup the following morning I noticed a few patches which I assume were dehydration.
Now this also could have been my doing as well as I had did an overnight purification mask the previous night, and may have drawn a little too much out of my skin.
Nothing that couldn’t be fixed though, a few pumps of a hydrating serum followed by a refreshing face mist; does the trick well.
I can tell you that the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Charcoal Clay Mask is worth the small investment and I would recommend it for a normal to oily skin type, maybe for a dry skin type depending on the sensitivity level. Its definitely a great way to freshen up the skin before a special even or a big day out.
Tomorrow I’ll be back with my final recap of The 7 Day Mask Challenge to summarize my overall experience as well as what my all-time favourites are.
