Loreal Pure Clay Face Masks

Those of you who know me, know how much I love a good face mask. In fact, I bought 6 new ones yesterday to try out (post coming soon!). I bought these two Loreal masks a few months ago now, there are 5 masks in the Pure Clay range priced at £7.99 each.

Glow Mask

The word 'Glow' is one of the main qualities I look for in my skincare products, therefore I couldn't resist this face mask. Enriched with Red Algae extract, known for its brightening properties. It also contains finely milled apricot seeds gently exfoliate dull, uneven skin to reveal a natural glow. 

The Pure Clay masks each contain a powerful blend of 3 clays:

- Kaolin - A highly effective natural clay, known to absord impurities and excess sebum 
- Montmorillonite - Rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections 
- Ghassoul - A pure clay highly concentrated in mineral renowned to help clarify complexion 

Bright Mask

Second best quality to 'Glow'ing skin? Bright. This mask contains Yuzu Lemon extract, known for its skin-evening properties (it also smells really good). The creamy texture, enriched with natural exfoliators, cleanses deep into the pores to absorb oil and remove dead skin cells without drying skin out. 

Clay masks that I have used in the past have always dried my skin out, however these masks are gentle to the skin and are also nourishing. 

I also need to highlight how nice the packaging is on these products; Each mask contains 50 ml and comes in a glass container. It is recommended that each masks lasts 10 applications therefore for £7.99 you get a lot of uses.

Not sure which mask to buy?

Why not try the 'Pure Clay Mini Masks Multi-Masking Play Kit' perfect for trying out which mask you prefer out of the 3 original masks.

Winter Walk | OOTD

It's got to that time of the year where I'm still able to go down to the beach for a walk but I now need to wear a coat - I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad that the colder weather is here. One thing that I am excited about it being able to wear this coat again, Joe (my boyfriend) gifted me this Zara number last Christmas and it's a dream of a coat.

I live on the south coast of England in an area coated in pebbles instead of white sands like the Bahamas, I can't complain though, at least I don't have sandy sandwiches? My casual grey and white top is from Urban Outfitters, it's long sleeved but a thin material so it's perfect for that in between hot/cold weather. 

My go-to ripped knee jeans are the Top Shop Jaime jeans which have ended up super ripped thanks to whenever I decide to bend my knees. 

They've started to look tatty - as I have had them for years - but these Roamer purple suede boots always make an appearance in Autumn for me. Does anyone else have a pair of shoes that they can't imagine throwing out or replacing?? 

I don't usually write a lot within my 'fashion' posts because I feel like all people want to know is where the clothing items are from. I'm bursting to have a chat on my little blog though because it's been a while, so look out for an up-coming post if you're interested in that kind of thing!
