NEW! L’Oréal Pure Clay Bright Mask Review


Skin brightening and skin glowing are two terms that are certainly used interchangeably in the beauty community so when L’Oréal released the New Pure Clay Bright Mask, I said to myself what’s the point as the already have a Glow mask anyway. The USP selling point of the new L’Oréal Pure Clay Bright Mask is that it has been ‘specially formulated for ethnic skin’ I didn’t even know this claim until another blogger (Vicky) pointed it out to me so I thought why not? Let’s try it out!

The new L’Oréal Pure Clay Bright Mask promises to clarify skin tone and illuminate the skin. it’s been made with Yuzu Lemon extract, known for its skin-evening properties and natural exfoliators


Because I thought this was very similar to the Glow Mask, for the purposes of this review, I will compare it to the Glow Mask in case you were stuck between the two. In my pics, I have them side by side

The new Bright Mask is creamier and definitely easier to apply, compared to the Glow mask. You also get a little tingling sensation (it’s more underwhelming than over) with the Bright Mask. In my opinion, I feel like the granules in the Bright Mask are finer although it takes slightly longer to dry. As directed, I leave this on for 10 mins (sometimes more) and rinse off with warm water. You get some exfoliation from the granules as you wash it off which I like. And it’s not too harsh on the skin. My skin doesn’t feel dry or tight afterwards.

In terms of brightening my skin, I haven’t noticed any difference there. I have been using the Body Shop Vit C daily moisturiser and that has made a huge difference in my skin so I thought the addition of this will take it to the next level (lol) but it didn’t. I usually get instant results from masks- I mean you kinda should seeing that you are only using it 2 or 3 times a week but with this, it’s just blah in my opinion.

Verdict– for some reason, the bright yellow colour of this mask made me think it would stain the skin when used but it doesn’t! I’m not sure why it’s been ‘specially made for ethnic skin’ because it kinda does nothing. I’ve used it 4 times now because it wanted to give it a fair chance. For me, it will be one of those masks I use when I want to (physical) exfoliate and mask at the same time.

I don’t think you need both the Glow Mask and the Bright Mask. If I had to choose between one I think I will go with the Glow Mask. With that, I saw a little something when I washed it off plus it also claims to brighten the skin but I also like the sensation you get this the Bright Mask and it’s easier to apply too.

It’s available from Boots & Superdrug (although I can’t see it online yet..) but also from Amazon for £7.99
