Beauty Treat: L’Oréal Pure Clay Masks

I’m currently on the hunt for some new skincare products. Since giving birth, my skin has changed and I find it to be much oilier than it usually is. My skin at the moment isn’t reacting to many of my old favourites like it used to – damn hormones. I recently attended the launch of L’Oréal’s Pure Clay Masks in Joburg. It was an evening of relaxation, girliness and pampering that came at the perfect time.

I’m sure the busy women out there can empathise and that building a new skincare routine isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially considering I’m pretty sure my body hasn’t completely readjusted yet. We’re so tempted to do the bare minimum because time just isn’t on our side. But it’s always important to take some time out, even if it’s the 10 minutes you need for the masks to work their magic. Let’s face it, we can’t all make it to the spa, right?

What’s great about these masks is that they can all work together to treat different skin concerns. Many of us have faces that are a combination of issues; for example mine is mostly dry especially in the Joburg climate. But because some parts have become super oily (hello shiny nose), I’m particularly glad that I can multi-mask with this range. In a nutshell, there’s one for each main skin concern and you can use one or a mix of all three at the same time.

Purity Mask aka The Green One

This is the mask I use the most at the moment because it targets oily skin or oilier skin areas on your face. It’s a blend of 30% clay and eucalyptus that helps to unclog pores and mattify. I like that it’s able to do this without leaving my skin feeling completely stripped dry.

Glow Mask aka The Red One

If your skin needs some exfoliating, then the tan one is the one for you. Made with red algae and volcanic rock particles, it removes dead skin cells, deeply unclogs pores and tightens them.

Detox Mask aka The Black One

This mask’s formula contains charcoal, which we all know is great for lifting impurities. It detoxifies your skin by drawing out the dirt and pollution.

The super chic packaging, the consistency and texture of all of them make me feel like I’m treating myself at the spa. Each mask retails for R149 and the tub gives you about 10 full face applications. The last time I checked, Dischem was having a promotion on them so grab yours soon. They’re a great way of having a little DIY pamper session 🙂

Have you tried these masks? What are your current skincare must-haves?

    I have been seeing buzz around these masks but have yet to try them. I’m sure I will eventually, but I need to finish my current stash first.
