L’Oreal Paris Face Masks Review – Pure Clay & Sugar Scrubs!

For my first post of 2018, and after a while of no posts, I thought I’d post a face mask review! Superdrug has had an ongoing reduction on the L’Oreal Paris Face mask range, including the new sugar scrub masks. With a recent extra 20% off for students, I thought I’d go ahead and buy some! I’ve tried a couple of the sample sized version of the pure clay range which were incredible so I purchased the full size version of the Purity clay mask and the Smooth sugars glow scrub. I did want the detoxifying pure clay mask initially as I felt that was one of the best when I tried the samples, though they were all sold out in my local store! So here’s what I thought: face masks

L’oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Face Mask 50ml – I absolutely love clay masks over peel off’s or any other type of mask, and love the vibrant colours of this range. I bought the full size of this one as it was best suited to my skin’s needs – I wanted a mask that would, as the product claims, purify and mattify my skin without drying it out. This mask was great; it has a really neutral, clay like smell and feels very nourishing and cleansing when put on. I applied it with the Real Techniques prep brush from the Prime and Prep brush set instead of my fingers for a smooth and clean application and then left it on for around 10 minutes. After the clay had hardened, I removed it with water and patted it dry with a towel. The results were instantaneous – my skin felt soft and pampered, and it definitely gave me even more confidence in my skin and appearance. I’ll definitely be trying out the other masks in this range!

L’Oreal Smooth Sugar Glow Grapeseed Face and Lip Scrub 50ml – I had seen the rave over this new range and so bought the grapeseed scrub to ‘polish and boost radiance’ to my skin. I loved the idea of a scrub for both the face and lips especially as lip scrubs alone can usually cost the same amount as this scrub!  Surprisingly, I did actually like the smell – it was quite rich and natural.  I applied it with a small amount of water, before waiting for the sugars to melt into the skin to wash it off. I was surprised at how quickly it was ready to be taken off, and it did initially feel like simply using a exfoliating face wash. But the effects were incredible – it really did leave your skin feeling polished and glowing, which was commented on by some. It was also very nourishing and gentle on the skin, and I loved the fact that it contained sugar instead of exfoliating beads, which in the past had dried my skin out and so I had switched to cream facial washes and so this provided a great alternative.

Overall, these are pretty good face masks, with a decent amount in nice glass tubs, and simply a nice way to wind down after a long day.

L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes: So Couture Mascara Review

Hi, I thought I’d post a review on this mascara as it’s one of the first products I’ve bought from L’Oreal Paris 🙂 I bought it on the way back from France on the ferry, so obviousely it was tax – free, but the RRP is: £10.99

Usage: I’ve had it for about a month, but I’ve used it for about a week.

First thoughts: There were loads of different L’Oreal Paris mascaras but I really like the purple/gold packaging on this one, and it looked quite expensive and of good quality. It was also one of their most recent mascaras, and they were all around the same price so I purchased this one. My lashes are fairly long so most mascaras don’t have much effect in terms of lengthening them so with this one I was quite surprised…The first time I PTDC0002used it, I didn’t think much of it and did not see any real effects, but as I continued the usage I applied a few more coats and from the roots which eventually gave my lashes the boost I was looking for in a mascara.

Application: I slightly curl my lashes with a lash-curler, before applying a few coats of the mascara, though even without the lash-curler’s, the effect is great.

The mascara genuinely lengthens them and gives maximum volume, unlike previous mascaras I’ve tried. The bristles are fairly short and close together, whichPTDC0001 explains why your lashes look so much more defined and voluminised, as each coat fans out your PTDC0007lashes, so each individual lash is separate, and therefore  become much more defined. People started complimenting me a lot more on my lashes with this mascara, and at times it looked like false lashes!

Verdict: If you want defined, voluminized, beautiful looking lashes, then this is worth it. Personally I probably won’t purchase it again but ONLY because at £11 it would be pricey to constantly repurchasing if I used it regularly. BUT it makes a great everyday mascara and it gets the thumbs up! ❤
