Review: Loreal Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask

I had my Loreal Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining face mask for a while now. This face mask is actually a 2-in-1 product -- a face mask that exfoliates.

I use it on days when I put on heavy makeup. As a housewife, I don't have to put on effort to look good at home. So yes, I rarely ever use it.

At first, I was not sure if it ever did anything to my skin. Until recently... when I got a huge pimple on my right cheek. And then... eureka! It does help clear out the pimple on my face. I wasn't expecting that to happen at all.

This face mask works wonders!

I'd usually apply a topical solution to my pimple whenever I got it. (This usually happens when I'm stressed out or don't have enough sleep.) Unhappily, the topical solution I have is not as effective as the previous ones I've used.

After using the face mask the night before, I noticed the huge pimple on my right cheek dried out and shrunk to half of its size the next day. Woah! I was amazed. I wasn't even anticipating for the product to get rid of my pimple. 

In fact, I only happen to apply the face mask at that time because I wanted to exfoliate and freshen up my face from the dirt and sweat accumulated on that day -- we needed to drive from Austin to Houston to complete for important documents. It was a busy day. We were running all over the place.

Loreal Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask Product Review

This product is thick. Nevertheless, it glides on easily during application. Below are my thoughts.

  • It helps get rid of impurities. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It helped reduce the huge pimple I got to half of its size the next day after application.
  • Skin feels so soft and smooth after application. It doesn't leave any residue and isn't drying. The face also feels clean & fresh afterward.
  • Exfoliates the skin. It has a gritty texture from the exfoliating beads that help remove the dead skin cells, oil, and dirt build-up. It actually feels like deep clean.
  • Minimizes the pores after washing.
  • Affordable given how effective the product is. I got mine from Walmart for less than $10 USD.

  • This may/may not be a con but it has a strong smell. Not everyone can be fond of that. I'm okay with it though.
  • It gives a tingling & cooling sensation during application. This may be a concern for people with sensitive skin.

I'm happy with my recent discovery. The Loreal Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask is an amazing product It works wonders on my skin! I'll be using this often from now on.
