Drugstore brands have been pretty busy releasing a tonne of products this month. I’m not sure if it’s a trick in the lead up to Valentines or their employees were give incentives over the Christmas period lol. Check out what’s new in the Drugstore here. I picked up the new L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Wash which is part of the new Pure Clay Face wash collection. I suspect this is to go hand in hand with their Pure Clay Face Masks they released last year. I picked up the Glow Mask from that range and I would have loved to pick up the corresponding face wash to my mask however, the ‘glow’ wash in the new Pure Clay Collection is a scrub and I personally don’t like using scrubs on my face ( I prefer chemical exfoliation as supposed to manual exfoliation)
The L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Wash is soap-free and promises to cleanse, clarify and detox the skin. The formula is suitable for everyday use and has 3 clays (Kaolin, Montmorillonite and Ghassoul) plus Charcoal
The black face wash is smooth and lathers up really nicely. After use, my face feels clean but slightly dry. The formula is supposed to be non-drying but I suspect the clays plus the charcoal is too much for my skin type. I have normal to combo skin with oily tzone (more on the normal side of the scale) so I suspect the product captures my natural face oils.
It doesn’t actually say what skin type the product is for but I think it will be best for oily skin types. I do like the wash because it deep cleans and lathers up quite nicely however it’s drying for my skin type. I will use it though, maybe once in a while and probably more in the summer
L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Wash is £5.99 (currently on offer in Boots for £3.99) and available from Boots
