The Scrub/Mask Combo You NEED from L’Oréal 

 Oh hey..

Ahh skincare. Skincare is something I really wanted to focus on this year. There are so many different brands out there with some fabulous products that are just calling out to be used. I’ve even made an exciting order on some particular products which I’ve been desperate to try – can’t wait to get my mitts on them and start reviewing !

For the past few months – I just stuck to the same skin regime – Movis Soap from Lush, any odd moisturiser I had lying around, and the odd mask here and there. But recently I introduced some new bits to my skincare ‘routine’ which I have been OBSESSED with. If you’re a skincare/beauty blogger – you will no doubt be very familiar with what I am going to talk about. And that’s the ever so popular L’Oréal masks & scrubs. I’m sure you’ve all seen those Instagram photos of the different coloured masks, each with their own ‘use’. After seeing so MANY amazing reviews about them.. I decided to pick some up.

 
L’Oréal Pure Clay Purity Mask

I decided on the Pure Clay Purity Mask because I do love me a good purifying, mattifying clay mask. I use this around once/twice a week as it is a pretty intense mask. I ensure my face is fully cleansed first then apply with a brush (seriously if you’ve not invested in a brush for your face masks do it NOW – it’s so worth it – and NO MESSY HANDS). It will feel pretty cold on the skin at first and even a little sting a little bit. This quickly passes and you can really feel the mask working on your skin. I leave it on for around 20 minutes before washing off. As with all clay masks, it’s a pain in the bum to remove – but I find holding a hot flannel over your skin before removing helps SO much. Et voila – I am left with skin that feels so clean & ‘tight’ (in a good way), like all my pores have been cleansed. It is also so soft and is left looking pretty radiant, if I do say so myself. I also find that any blemishes I may have are reduced the next day after using this. It’s a pretty amazing mask – and so worth the £8. It’s definitely on the more affordable sides of masks – I can even say it works just as well as my Khiels one.

 
L’Oréal Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub

So there I was .. strolling through Superdrug when I noticed some new bits from L’Oréal. Sugar scrubs. I’m such a massive sucker for a good sugar scrub. I love how gentle, yet effective they are. The fact that I had been so obsessed with the clay mask made me want to try this little baby. So I picked it up (at a pretty amazing price of £5 too – winning), and planned on using it as soon as I got home. The first thing I loved about it when I opened it was the scent – it had a yummy, sweet scent (it’s a sugar scrub – duh) – in fact I even had a cheeky taste. FYI – tasted like poo. I also found it was a lovely, non abrasive, creamy texture. It was SO easy to use on my face and I found it to be really gentle. It has grape seed oil in it too which meant it felt so nourishing, but I still felt the scrub was doing its job. Whenever I’ve made my own sugar scrubs, I’m always left with a greasy feel to my skin – but after washing this off it definitely was not the case. I find I love using this a few times a week, as it really just gives my skin that little bit of a pick me up and leaves it looking glowing and feeling SUPER soft. Oh, not to mention this one doubles up as a lip scrub too – which has been a SAVIOUR in winter for me!

 
It’s gotta be said guys – L’Oréal have REALLY impressed me with both of these products. I love that they come in jars which I find not only look prettier (shallow I know), but they are less messy. I would highly recommend checking these out, as they have a pretty decent variation depending on your skin type, or what type of mask/scrub you are after. I want to get a few more so I can have a mix of masks/scrubs to choose from – I will literally feel like a kid at a pick and mix stand!

If you’re on the hunt for some new skincare bits, I’d suggest having a little browse through what L’Oréal have on offer – especially these masks & scrubs. They have become cult products for me and I honestly look forward to using them (call me sad I don’t care). Also – make sure to let me know if you’ve already tried these and what your thoughts were.

I currently have the mask on right now and think it’s time to wash it off as I’m sure it’s been longer than 20 mins. Oops.

Chat soon .. lotsa love,

Saira

    I just picked up those scrubs the other day, they just came here. I’ve had this green one for quite some time and I can’t say I share the love for it. It leaves my skin very matte which is basically why I bought it, but it does nothing in terms of actually cleaning my face. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but my pores are forever clogged haha
    and thanks for suggesting this scrub as a lip scrub, I’ll definitely try that 😀
    great post!

    I’m yet to try the sugar scrub but it sounds perfect. I bet this would be great to gently exfoliate my self tan and that’s always a bugger to get rid of. Good idea of using this as a lip balm too 🙂 polishedcouture.com xx

    Ooohhh that scrub looks interesting! I do love the masks too! I always apply masks with a brush, so so much easier, and less wastage. I just use a paddle foundation brush, since I find those apply foundation streakily.
