L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask Purify and Mattify Review


L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask Purify and Mattify

Buy Here or Amazon US

I got it for: AUD 12

What Does it Have?

This has eucalyptus, charcoal and red algae. The colour is green, so my guess is that it does not contain a lot of charcoal. The eucalyptus makes the skin warm, though it is still important to do a patch test if you are still in doubt.

Other ingredients include: water, kaolin (clay), Montmorillonite (clay), silica, lecithin, polysorbate 20, butylene glycol, propylene glycol, rice starch, eucalyptus extract, glycerin, moroccan lava clay, capryly glycol, citric acid, xanthan gum, methylparaben, sodium benzoate, sodium methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, chlorphenesin, coloring, linalool, geraniol, coumarin, citronellol, perfume.

Looking at the list of ingredients not listed on the box, I can tell you that I bought this on impulse. If I knew that this contains alcohol and petroleum, I would less likely get it. I know that it says purifying and mattifying, but I am not a fan of leaving parabens sitting on my face for long. Especially when they seem to have a few here. I can accept the perfume and the stuffs to keep it fluid, but L’Oreal can create one without petrolatum would be great.

Because it does weaken the structure of the skin if used regularly, plus it’s not very inducing for gaseous exchange between pores. Not cool, I am using it once a week or less, though with the size of the jar, probably around 5 uses.

Here’s How I Use It

With the silicone mask I got from Daiso, I managed to prevent the mask from drying out while I walked around doing things.


The warmth from the mask lasted around five minutes, then it subsided to a cooling feel. Overall I kept it on for fifteen minutes, washing it off water with cold water. I’m too cheap to use hot water actually. Just remember to follow up with a good moisturiser, like Good Thing Cream or Rosehip oil to stop skin from drying out.

My head band is from Wicked Sista, I don’t really like it, but it was on special at 40% off. I was trying a new hair style, and the head band snagged my hair off. Not really impressed but it does have blingly fake diamonds.

What It Says It Can Do

Apparently, this jar can deeply cleanse and remove impurities, as well as energising my dull skin. It boasts to even skin tone and brightens skin. I am not sure how many jars are needed to accomplish this, because I see nothing after this application. I am sceptical that it would work, mainly because

A) parabens aren’t really good at the removing part. If you block the pores when you apply, how is it going to cleanse?

B) I doubt dehydrated skin can feel energised. Alcohol is dehydrating, not to mention clay absorbs moisture (hence it dries up)


For AUD 12, this is not the most expensive mask that I bought, nor it is the cheapest. This is an underwhelming product, especially when you read the full ingredients list. The packaging is simple yet misleading. If you were considering this, probably consider otherwise.
