L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Mask
As far as the formula itself goes, Clarify & Smooth Mask features the line’s powerful blend of 3 pure clays—kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava clay to be exact—that can be found in the others as well. What sets this mask apart, however, is the addition of a special ingredient that the others are not formulated with: Yuzu Lemon Extract.
The Benefits of L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Mask
What can L’Oreal Paris’ new Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Mask do for me? Great question! The formula can help draw out built-up impurities, dirt, and pollution, shed rough dead skin cells, clarify tone, and improve the skin’s texture. The results? Immediately, skin is left with a clean glow, with dirt, oil, and dust effectively lifted from the skin. Plus, you can say hello to a complexion that feels smoother and appears fresher. Not surprisingly, the benefits only increase with continued use. Use after use, skin surface looks renewed, refined, and more even with a reduced appearance of imperfections. Not too shabby, huh?
How to Use L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Mask
Incorporating Clarify & Smooth Mask into your routine is simple. To use, apply an even layer to clean dry skin, avoiding eye and lip area, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Next, remove the mask with water, massaging in circular motions to exfoliate and help remove dead skin cells. Once your face is clean, dry off and continue on with the rest of your skin care routine. For best results, use Clarify & Smooth mask three times per week.
If your cleanser isn't doing enough to address roughness and imperfections, it might be time to up the ante with an exfoliating mask treatment. @lorealusa new Clarify & Smooth Pure-Clay Mask is the perfect product to get the job done. Made with 3 pure clays and yuzu lemon extract, the formula works to draw out built-up impurities, shed skin cells that can cause roughness, clarify the skin tone, and improve the overall texture. To use, apply an even layer to cleansed skin avoiding the eyes and lips and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse with water while using circular motions for added exfoliation, and you can expect to see a clean glow and fresher complexion.
L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Mask Review
As someone with continually clogged pores, blackheads, and excess oil, I’ve been a proud patron of L’Oreal Paris’ Pure-Clay line from the start. The brand won my heart with their Detox & Brighten Mask, so when they sent over a complimentary sample of the new Clarify & Smooth Mask for the Skincare.com team to review, I immediately volunteered.
The same day Clarify & Smooth Mask arrived, I took it straight home to give it a whirl. After cleansing my face, I applied the mask and waited just over ten minutes before rinsing off. The mask itself smells amazing, which made for a very luxurious experience, but that was only the start! After using Clarify & Smooth Mask, my complexion appeared smoother, fresher, and more radiant. I could tell that this mask had lifted away all traces of dirt, dust, and oil that may have been lingering on my skin’s surface post-cleanse. I was so pleased with the immediate results!
Moral of the story: If you’re looking for a mask that can help draw out impurities while shedding rough, dead skin cells for a smoother-looking, more evenly toned complexion, I recommend giving Clarify & Smooth Mask a try. I’m more than satisfied with the results I saw, and will be incorporating this clay mask into my routine.
