Skin type: Combination and acne-prone.
L’oreal recently came up with 3 variants in their clay masks and they look totally appealing to me since I have a lot of skin issues. I picked up the “exfoliate and refine” variant. I actually wanted to buy the detox one but, sadly that was unavailable 🙂 But, no regrets, since this turned out to be really great. Read the review to know why I called it great 🙂
Price: $12.99/Rs 885 for 1.7 oz

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refining Treatment Mask:
Packaging: The L’oreal exfoliate and refine mask comes in a fresh mint and peach packaging. The mint colour is common with the other shades in the variants which will easily help in distinguishing them. The tub comes in a big box which looks very classy. It has all the details printed on it. The glass jar is sturdy and heavy with the mint cap. The face pack which is coral peach in colour can be seen through the jar. When I opened and started using it, I noticed that the quantity is pretty low to the price charged. So, I really wish the quantity was a little more than this.
Consistency, Texture and Feel on the Skin: The consistency is perfect just like any other clay mask. The mask comes in a coral red colour which resembles red algae that are present in the mask. The mask contains little granules that are out in there for exfoliation. The mask is thick but, it glides very smoothly on the face and stays put. It does not irritate my skin at all, in fact, it imparts a nice cooling sensation. The mask pretty much relaxes me. The quality of the mask is excellent and is totally worth the money. The best part of this face pack is that although it is a clay mask, it does not dry out my skin at all which is amazing. I have used a lot of clay masks and each mask has left my skin stretchy and dry but, this one did not. Hence, I am very much impressed with this. It takes 10-15 minutes for the face mask to dry completely and then I just wash it off.
Results: It is super easy to wash the mask and it comes off without a lot of efforts. But, the skin instantly felt bright and healthy-looking. I could actually feel that it took away all the dirt, oil and impurities and also buffed away the dead and dull cells. Also, it cleared up the flaky skin and my skin did not look dry even during winters. But the best thing that it did was, it made my skin extremely smooth. The granules exfoliate the skin perfectly and while washing the mask off, I scrub it for 2 minutes which gives a perfect exfoliation. My skin felt instantly smoother and kept on being smoother for the coming few days too. Also, it did make my pores look small. It did not do any magic but, yes it did look smaller than usual. So, it is an amazing mask to have and I currently love using this one!
