First Impression: L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks

Hey Everyone!

It’s been awhile since I actually posted about beauty products. I am still doing the “October Blogging Challenge“, so if you have no idea what it is, check out the first post and feel free to join in! It’s not too late.

For today’s post, I wanted to share a first impression/review of the new L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks. Everybody has been raving about them and sure enough, I have seen other brands coming out with something similar. At first, I wasn’t too sure of them, but 2 of my favourite YouTubers, Desi Perkins and Lustrelux have been raving about them, so I figured I would give it a shot.

If you are interested, keep on reading!


What is it?

First things first, the product is a mask. There are 3 different kinds available depending on your skin type, what results you want to see etc. I bought two of them that I felt are best suited for me. I am only going to talk about the 2 that I have as it wouldn’t be fair to make assumptions on another product I haven’t tried. The 2 I bought are:

  • Exfoliating and Pore Refining: 3 Mineral Clays & Red Algae
  • Detox and Brighten: 3 Pure Clays & Charcoal

The third mask if meant for purifying and mattifying. I have already used the charcoal mask a few times, so I can give you a review of how I like it so far.


Detox and Brighten Charcoal Mask

I have used this mask 3 times already and I have to say that I am really impressed with it. Before I get into that, let me tell you what this mask is meant for. I don’t have the packaging anymore, so I am just going to copy what L’Oreal has stated on their website.

Pure clays and charcoal act like a magnet to clean out pores and draw-out and capture deep impurities (such as dirt, oil, and pollution). This creamy, non-drying formula leaves skin feeling clean, velvety, and rebalanced. Detox and Brighten Pure-Clay Mask addresses your dull, tired skin to reveal a purified, even, and radiant complexion. Immediately, skin looks brighter with a healthy glow. Deep pore cleansing–dirt, dust and pollution are removed from skin. Skin’s complexion looks fresher and more even.

Immediately after using it once, I noticed my blackheads were either pulled out from the mask or ready to be gone. My skin was left feeling smooth and clean. I am not seeing the healthy glow like it claims, but I honestly don’t think that claim is ever really true. There is more to it than just a mask to achieve a healthy glow hah.


The next few times I used it, I noticed the same thing happening to my blackheads, so I knew it was working properly. I don’t use it all over my face though, it’s more of my t-zone that I will apply it to.

Exfoliating and Pore Refining

On the back of the packaging, L’Oreal states why each mask will work for you and what visible results you are going to see. I love that they did this as it makes it so much easier to narrow it down. If only I kept the packaging for the other mask.

This mask will:

  • Unclog & tighten pores
  • Exfoliate dead skin cells and smooth skin texture
  • Draw out build-up of impurities, dirt and pollution
  • Refresh and allow skin to breathe

The packaging states that you will immediately see a smoother complexion and visibly smaller pores. After each use, your skin should start to look healthier.


I think this mask is very promising. From every review that I read and did research of, it has been given a high rating. I won’t know for sure until I use it, but considering how I love the charcoal mask, I think I might love this one too😉 I will let you know!

Depending on where you buy the masks from, they can range from $12.99-$16.99. I was lucky enough to use my optimum points and get these for next to nothing when you were selling for $16.99. The price is definitely up there, but it is definitely worth it, in my opinion.

Let me know if you have purchased any of the masks or if you intend to. I hope you enjoyed reading my quick review and I will let you know how I feel about them in a final post in the next coming weeks.

Thanks for reading!

  1. The price has stopped me on these as well, like Stashy said you can get a Lush one for $10! Interested in the Pore Refining one though!


    • Ugh I know! I think the price will definitely be their downfall and we might see price slashing in the future.


  2. These look great! I have to remember to pick one up soon.


  3. That’s so great the charcoal mask worked on your blackheads! I hope you’ll like the Exfoliating and Pore Refining will work as well for you. I’ve been wanting to try one of them but the price is a bit high for what it is – I mean, I can get a LUSH mask for $10 and it’s all natural.


    • Ugh I know! It’s so hard to justify the price when you can get something cheaper like you said.
