These face masks by L’Oreal are still doing really well a year on and they recently added two new additions to the face mask range! When I heard about them on a trip to town with Dane a few weeks ago, I knew I’d need to have a look at them to see what they were all about.
As older readers will know I picked up the detox mask in August last year, not long after it came out and reviewed it on my blog, which you can read here.
The first three masks to be released were the Detox, Glow and Purity masks. Out of the three I have still only tried the Detox one and I still have to try the other ones! I was tempted to pick them all up when picking up the Blemish Rescue one, but alas I need to save money. 😛
So as I mentioned before, L’Oreal have recently released two new masks, including my new one which is Blemish Rescue and Bright.
Each mask does something different:
Purity deeply purifies and mattifies, detox cleanses and clarifies, glow brightens and exfoliates, bright evens tone and illuminates and blemish rescue clears and unclogs.
I’m a massive fan of charcoal face masks as I find they help my oily t-zone as well as fight against any blemishes I may have. SO when I heard the bright blue face mask that L’Oreal was bringing out was blemish fighting, I knew I’d be getting it.
Blemish rescue contains 3 pure clays:
Kaolin – A highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum.
Montmorillonite – Rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections.
Ghassoul – A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify complextion.
On the packaging for blemish rescue it states:
For the first time, the L’Oreal Paris Laboratories have selected three Pure Clays and combined them with Marine Algae extract, known for its anti-blemish properties. The creamy texture targets deep into the pores, to unclog blackheads and clear imperfections, leaving the skin pure and fresh without drying it out.
It claims that it immediately leaves skin feeling fresh, pores shrunk and blemishes reduced. After a week blackheads are unclogged and skin if mattified. Finally use after use will leave pore cleared and skin looking visibly transformed!
It tells you to use this face mask twice a week, which I’ve been doing whenever I wash my hair, so Wednesday (mid week) and Sunday (end of the week.
Like Detox the packaging is exactly the same with Blemish Rescue. The product is in a clear glass jar so that you can see the product inside. The lid is a different colour mind and instead of green which is was for Detox, it’s now white. Nothing major but I don’t know why they changed it.
As I mentioned on my review for detox I love how expensive the glass jar makes the face mask appear and it really does make a nice change to sachets and Lush’s plastic black pots. It also means you can see how much you have left after each use.
The mask itself is an awesome bright blue colour and looks almost metallic, but I think it’s just where it’s clay. I did feel like it went metallic when it dried on my face though…
You get 50ml of product and like the detox mask a little bit of this goes a hell of a long way! There’s supposed to be 10 applications in a jar but I can’t see this myself. I use my detox mask once a fortnight, I’ve owned it almost a year and yet it appears there is loads left in the packaging.
I like to pop this mask on all over my face before I jump into the bath or shower, as it makes it easier to wash off. I leave it on until it dries and then wash it off. It’s hard to tell with this mask when it’s fully dry as the colour doesn’t lighten. It’s more of a case of touching your face to see.
I stated up above how this claims to leave your skin after immediate use and I don’t know if it’s due to going to work straight after using it and rushing to get ready for work, but I didn’t notice a change straight away. A few days later I did notice that my blemishes had reduced, which is great! I also noticed that my t-zone was mattified too which is something I am forever searching for in a product.
I definitely want to try this mask on Dane’s skin due to his oily nose to see how it work with his blackheads and excess sebum.
I can’t wait to see what more use of this face mask will bring to my skin though. It’s definitely a mask for people to use with combination skin, as I didn’t find that it dried out my cheeks. That’s where the Glow or Brighten mask can be used alongside this one.
At the moment Boots have all these masks on offer at the moment for £5.99 instead of £7.99. Sadly I don’t know how long for, so if you want to grab one of the new masks to try then get one as soon as possible!
I’ll definitely be buying the other masks eventually as I want to try them all! Have you tried any of the original 3 masks, or either of the 2 new ones? If so what do you think of them? Make sure to let me know in the comments!
Until next time take care all and have a lovely weekend!
