I’ve been seeing the L’Oreal PURE-CLAY MASK’s everywhere and I’ve been wanting to test them out. Luckily I got 3 sample sized masks in my Target beauty box and the first one I tested out was the Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask with mixed results.
I really wanted to love this mask because I’ve heard such good things about it. The red clay formula (it has Rich Red Algae) is a medium consistency with a fine grit to it for exfoliation. I was easily able to apply a thin coat with my fingers as it’s super smooth and creamy.
However I just didn’t like the scent. It’s a definite floral aroma that just didn’t float my boat. I like the smell of the Borghese Fango Active Mud much better as it’s more earthy.
This mask didn’t burn or irritate my skin and it dried smooth. I actually like when a clay mask dries hard and cracks a little. I washed it off with a warm wash rag and it came off clean and easy. I did feel like my face was smoother after using this mask and I do believe it does a good job with exfoliation however I was just not blown away with the results as I could not get past the scent.
