I’m sure I’ve banged on about my crazy skin before and I’m always on a quest for products that promise to give me clear and glowing skin. I was having a particularly bad skin day (picture warning, bad skin pic below) and I’d just read London Beauty Queen’s post about the new clay masks and thought I’d give the detox one a go.
Off I scooted to Boots to hunt down one of the detox masks, it was the very last one is the whole store which I think is a good sign as it must be popular. Best news of all the clay masks are currently on offer at Boots for just £5 instead of the usual £7.99.
The detox clay mask is charcoal based which is meant to be great for drawing out the skin's toxins but the downside is – it’s black, not so ideal with a white bathroom! But hey, if that’s the price of clear skin then I’ll take it!
The formula is really rich and creamy and drew out all the impurities without drying my skin out. I’ve used cream based face masks in the past and found them to be really drying on my skin it’s really easy to apply an even layer across the skin and dries well whilst working its magic. I did find it a little harder to clean off and be prepared for your bathroom to look like there’s been a bit of an explosion but, I promise the results are worth it! I have taken to relaxing in the bath with it on – so much easier to wash off.

There are three different clay masks within the new range each offering a different result – Detox - to draw out impurities, Purity - to tone down oily and shiny skin and Glow – to illuminate dull, lacklustre skin. L’Oreal are promoting multi-masking but for me at the moment I’m sticking to detoxing as it seems to be working its magic.
As you can see from my fairly hideous before picture my skin has reverted to my adolescent self but the after picture was taken two weeks after and it’s so much better! Yay for clear skin!
Have you tried any of these masks or do you have a failsafe product you always turn to in a time of need? Let me know, I’m always on the lookout!
