Does the sweltering weather leave your skin feeling sticky and icky? Do your pores feel blocked by the oil film that’s over your face? What products should you use to ensure your face and skin is cleaned thoroughly? This time we put the L’Oreal Paris’ Pure Clay Mask and Sea Salt Whip Foam Cleanser to the test!
Singaporean ladies depend heavily on hydrating and moisturizing skincare products, to replenish the moisture levels in our skin after spending many hours in air-conditioned offices, shopping centres and even rooms at home. This takes a huge toll on our skin and many ladies make the effort to use moisturizing skincare products to regain the hydration and radiance they desire. Facial masks are no stranger to most ladies’ skincare regime. Therefore, it is no surprise that L’Oreal Paris launched masks containing rich minerals for cleansing and maintenance, which are already super popular in Western and European countries. Competing directly with Kiehl’s White Clay, L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask offers something that other brands don’t.
The natural minerals in the Moroccan Lava Clay formula effectively removes excess dirt on your face. The L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask series comes in 4 different types, allowing you to mix and match them to suit your skin’s needs! We used the Anti-Pores mask to perform deep cleansing and strengthening in the T-zone areas, targeting large pores and blackheads. It’s great for countering acne too!
Texture wise, L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask really feels like you’re touching mud. However, it’s actually pretty easy to apply. Simply use your fingertips to swipe up the product without using any additional tools. The mask exudes a pleasant rosemary scent and is smooth in texture, without any obvious granules. Don’t take too long to apply the Pure Clay Mask to your face because it dries up quite quickly!
Leave the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask on your face for about 8-10 minutes and you will feel your skin tightening. At first, we were worried that our skin would become overly dehydrated after washing off the product. To our surprise, the Pure Clay Mask was easy to wash off and didn’t leave the skin feeling dry! Although the official recommendation is to use this clay mask twice to three times a week, it’s important to consider your skin type and adjust the usage amount accordingly. Here’s an important thing to note: after performing such thorough cleansing, remember not to neglect your toners, essences, serums and other skin maintenance products to complete your skincare regime!
Before introducing this product, we’ll share a little bit more about Coco’s skin condition. She has dry skin that doesn’t exude much oil, making it exceptionally important for her to keep her skin moisturised. However, she has also noticed that the pores on the tip of her nose are enlarged, allowing dirt and germs to settle in. Acne is also a common problem for her, so it is essential that she exfoliates to get rid of dead skin cells and perform thorough cleansing.
The L’Oreal Sea Salt Whip Foam Cleanser with Rose essence is quite suitable for dry and sensitive skin so consider it a staple if that’s your skin type. The foam cleansers in this series are formulated with French Sea Salt which is rich in calcium and magnesium, allowing skin renewal, strengthening of your skin barrier and offers protection against natural aggressors in the environment.
L’Oreal’s Sea Salt Whip Foam Cleanser carries a slight rose fragrance and bubbles up really easily. Simply use your palms to apply the cleanser on your skin and use water to wash off. You’d find that not only does your skin feel moisturised, it also doesn’t leave a sticky film like other cleansers on the market!
If you wish to achieve perfect, flawless skin, the key always lies in your skin cleansing routine! Regardless of whether you’re a makeup user, it is important to use a makeup remover to get rid of impurities on your skin before using the L’Oreal Paris Sea Salt Whip Foam Cleanser on all five areas of the face (cheeks, nose, forehead, around the lips, jaw and neck). Rub the cleanser gently on the skin and wash off before using a clean towel or tissue to dab dry and then move on to the next step of your skincare routine.
