L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Cleansers REVIEW

The new L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Cleansers come in three formulas. I will review each separately because they feel quite different on the skin. I was quite excited to try these cleansers since I loved the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Masks that were released several months ago. I received these three cleansers as a PR sample from L’Oreal and they included this super cute monogrammed face towel to go with it.

L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Cleansers

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Charcoal Detoxifying Gel Wash 150 mL RRP $14.99

 I like this wash. It feels nice and reminds me a lot of a normal clay, charcoal mask but a mini version of the experience. Like using the express checkout at Coles, instead of the normal, full commitment, trolley packed, have a chat with the check out chick type checkouts. However, I still definitely feel the need to use a proper charcoal mask every once in a while to help my face out. 

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Eucalyptus Purifying Cream Wash 150 mL RRP $14.99

My skin loved this cleanser the most out of the three. I found it to be the gentlest of the Clay Cleansers but still felt like it was soothing my skin as well as giving it a thorough clay clean. I love to leave this cleanser on my skin for 5 minutes for an ‘express clay mask’ treatment then wash off as normal. Highly recommend! Definitely my go-to pick fo’ sure. 

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Red Algae Exfoliating Scrub 150 mL RRP $14.99

Although I do enjoy this scrub I found my slightly sensitive skin didn’t like if I left it on too long. This one does have little grainy bits in it to exfoliate your skin. Nice product but not my favourite of the bunch. I think it works bests if I focus it on the tougher parts of the skin on my face, like my forehead and it’s also great for my décolletage area.

Overall Feels

  • I love the packaging, the tubes are so convenient and practical.
  • The fun, moussey texture is also a win. Very easy to apply and massage into the skin. 
  • First ‘clay’ cleansers I’ve tried and I give them a big thumbs up
  • Perfect if you want the ‘clay treatment’ without having to wait for a mask to dry

    I haven’t tried any of these Cleansers or even their mask range, but think I’d like the Red Algae Exfoliating Scrub the most, purely because I adore scrubs and I find the colour of it interesting!
