Mask jar has pastel green lid and a white plastic cover that prevents the mask from oozing out as well as safeguards mask from drying out on prolonged storage. The mask jar is housed in discretely labelled cardboard box which bears all the details about the product and educate consumers especially beginners about the product in best possible way. I loved the packaging especially the hued clays look attractive across the transparent jars especially if you have tw0 or all three of them for multi-masking but I seriously missed an applicator brush considering the price and hefty cardboard packaging of the product.
L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Exfoliate & Refining Mask has creamy-clay consistency that spreads smoothly on my cleansed skin.Although it has exfoliating granules but the texture looks uniform creamy in tub rather than granular given to the fine size of buffing particles.I use my Glamglow Mask brush which has rubber spatula at one end and brush at another end to apply this mask. So to maintain the hygiene of mask, I scoop out some amount the product rather than dipping my brush in the entire product. I apply even layer of the mask on my cleansed dry skin avoiding eyes and lip area. Mask applies with slight tingling on my skin which means lot of action is happening to unclog pores and refine overall skin texture. However tingling subsides within few seconds of application and I relax with mask on my face & neck for 15-20 minutes.
After even 20 minutes, it does not feels tightening on skin unlike regular clay masks. I massage it out with water in upward circular motions to exfoliate and remove superficial layers of skin.It does not dry out my skin post rinse and my overall skin texture appears refined.( Click the link here to see me in action with this mask). It tightens pores and remove superficial layers of dead skin.It should work well for all skin types.
VANILLA RATINGS – 8.5/10
L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Exfoliate & Refine Pores Red Algae Mask is a clay – mud mask that comes with goodness of three pure clays – Kaolin, Montmorillnite and Moroccan clay enhanced with potent red algae extracts.Synchronised action of all these ingredients draw out deep seated, build up impurities, dirt and oil which refines overall skin texture. Fine, well rounded granules of Apricot seeds in clay mask offers mild to moderate exfoliation and unclog pores helping skin to breathe better which looks smooth and soft after regular use.
If you have rough skin with clogged & enlarged pores you should definitely consider using this mask. On the contrary if you have active acne or combination skin, consider using other two pure clay masks – green or black clay versions along with i.e Multi masking !! This red algae mask will suit all skin types and benefits skin by refining overall skin texture which feels smooth and looks bright on regular use. Recommended !!
PS: Although Pure Black Clay Mask is available internationally, I have not seen it yet anywhere online or in stores in India. Even the brand is promoting green and red clay variants in media, so it seems that either L’Oreal has skipped the black clay version for India or may plan to introduce it later.(..??##)
