I hate to admit that besides removing my makeup with micellar water and throwing on a bit of moisturiser before I go to bed, my skincare routine is pretty non-existent. I knew I had to start looking after my skin because I noticed recently my skin was looking very dull, tired and I was getting breakouts - something I haven’t experienced since I was a teenager.
You can see everyone is going mad for the black face masks lately. However, I have seen far too many disaster videos on Facebook that have made me steer clear.
From looking at different face mask, products and treatment reviews online, it’s pretty clear you could spend hundreds of euro on different skincare products and with so many brands out there it’s very easy to get confused.
I went in to my local Sam McCauley’s Chemist to have a browse, and there was a special offer on the new L’Oréal clay masks. I had heard good things about them so I decided to pick up the Pure Clay Detox Mask with charcoal, which is used to detoxify and clarify without drying the skin out.
I also picked up the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask to rehydrate and revitalise my skin after using the detoxifying mask.
I used an old flat foundation brush to apply the mask in a thin layer, obviously avoiding my eyes and lips. It had a light perfume scent and was very easy to spread across my face. It says that you should leave it on for 5-10 minutes, I left it on the full 10 because my skin was quite bad.
I could see the mask working while I was waiting for it to dry and I could see where the toxins were been drawn out of my pores. My skin felt tight but it wasn’t uncomfortable.
I took the mask of with a wet face cloth, and honestly my skin just felt amazing so soft and fresh like I had a whole new face. There was a tiny bit of redness, as to be expected, but it was gone after 2 or 3 minutes.
I then applied the Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask, which was a little cool and felt really good against my skin. I left the mask on for 15 minutes as directed. When I took it off, I rubbed the excess serum into my skin. I couldn’t believe that after just one use the difference in my skin. It felt soft and was just glowing.
My skin not only looked great but my makeup applied and lasted so much better after using these products.
I will definitely continue to use these products at least twice a week from now on.
The Clay Mask is a bargain for under ten euro for up to 10 applications. The Tissue Mask was only two euro and they can bought be bought in most pharmacies.
These are fab and only need to be used a few times a week - perfect for busy ladies who don’t have time to do a long skin care routine every night. My skin looked good enough that I was even happy to go out with just my brows drawn in and some lip gloss something I NEVER EVER do. Your skin will look after you as you get older as long as you look after it.
These two products do their job and don’t break the bank…Big thumbs up from me!
