L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Face Mask

I thought I would do a quick  review of the L'Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask as this range has featured quite heavily in my social media feed over the last few months. I actually received this as part of a Christmas skincare hamper but because I travel so much and haven't really been home, I only got around to trying it out last week.

There are three masks available in the Pure Clay range and each of them contain 3 pure clays + 1 specialised ingredient (red algae, eucalyptus or charcoal).

What masks are available in this range?
Glow mask: brightens + exfoliates.
Purity mask: purifies + mattifies.
Detox mask: detoxifies + clarfies,

What are the benefits of using a clay mask on your skin?
Kaolin + Charcoal (2 of the ingredients in the Detox Mask) are mineral rich and work together to gently absorb impurities to balance and purify your skin.
The clay gently exfoliates and your skin should feel purer and clearer and more luminous after use.

How do you apply it and does it work?
The product comes in a glass jar with a screw top and plastic seal over the clay itself. I would suggest keeping it and not discarding it, otherwise the clay might leak from the jar. It's quite messy and I would recommend applying a thin layer with a flat foundation brush to minimise mess. I left this on for 10-15 mins and washed the product off with warm water.

Would you recommend this product?
If you're looking for a nice budget friendly mask to add to your weekly skincare routine I think this would make a good addition. It didn't have any groundbreaking results for me but my skin did feel nice, refreshed and more luminous after using this.

The L'Oreal Clay Mask range retails at £7.99 and is currently on offer for £5.29 in Superdrug.

 Have you tired any of the masks from this range?

My Ladybug - Ireland's First Period Subscription Box

Period. Such a natural and normal part of being a girl yet still  a taboo subject! We all have it yet no one likes to talk about it and the majoirty don't like to see that "time of the month" come around... (sounds as if I'm speaking in riddles!) 

No matter what your Period experience is, its usually quite an unpleasant one and what better way to cheer you up than a box full of essentials and carefully packed goodies! I was kindly sent this Monthly Subscription Box from My LadyBug and think it is such a fab idea, I thought I'd share it with you. 

Personally I get really bad PMS in the lead up to my period, usually wake up in the middle of the night with painful cramps and often feel dizzy and light headed. I am usually in bad form and like nothing more than to chill out with a mountain of chocolate, a hot water bottle and herbal tea. 

The Subscription Box from MyLadyBug can be tailored to suit your needs and you can chose exactly what kind of Tampons and/or Sanitary Towels you want included in your box. You also get a supply of chocolate and some herbal tea in a little pouch. (I always use these handy pouches to carry earrings and dainty jewellery when I'm travelling.)

MyLadyBug believe in taking the drama out of your period and I fully support this concept! Boxes are priced at €9.99 + FREE shipping & you can cancel at any time. To avail of a 15% discount off your first box use my discount code "RBLOG" on MyLadyBug !

All subscription boxes are dispatched monthly on 19-21st; allow 5 days for delivery & re-billing is  on the 31st or 1st after you receive your first box.

What do you find helps you around your time of the month?
