I have been eyeing these clay masks from L’Oreal very longingly ever since they have been out abroad & was almost going to buy one from Amazon at a much steeper price when I saw a couple of variants sitting pretty on Nykaa ^_^ Yippee!

My take on the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refine Pores-
The mask comes in a heavy square glass tub with a protective plastic cover & a sea green screw-on lid. Aside from my patent peeve of having to dip fingers into the product, the heavy glass jar is also a bother to travel with :-/ What about a tube packaging instead L’Oreal?
The mask is coral pink in color with a thick, clayey texture & minute yet effective scrubby granules but contrary to my thoughts, it was very easy to apply & spread on the skin 🙂 I applied a thin even layer after cleansing my face & kept it on for 15 minutes before slowly scrubbing & rinsing it off. The mask did not sting/burn at all or aggravate my sensitive skin in any way & it was quite easy to rinse off as well as it did not dry up completely in the given time 🙂
After washing, my face felt so so baby soft, smooth to the touch & looked cleansed & radiant <3 My skin did not feel dry/stretchy at all in spite of having used a clay mask & instead felt perfectly balanced & soft 🙂 Loved its gentle yet effective scrubbing effect & how clean & fresh my face looked 🙂
I have used it for a couple of weeks now & till date have not seen much noticeable effect on my pores, but then again, I don’t have that large pores to begin with!
The mask has a very strong fresh fragrance lingering for several minutes after washing it off which I was not expecting from a clay mask & while I don’t hate the smell, I wish it was more subtle or even absent 😐
Pros of the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refine Pores:
1> Easy to spread, smooth texture of the mask.
2> Gentle yet effective scrubbing granules present which do not aggravate sensitive skin.
3> Does not dry out skin at all & instead makes skin perfectly balanced & soft.
4> After rinsing it off, skin looks & feels radiant, clean & smooth <3
Cons of the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refine Pores:
The heavy glass jar packaging is not at all convenient for travelling :-/
The mask is heavily fragranced which might be a bit too much for sensitive noses.
Swatch of the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refine Pores-
