Clay Masks are fun and I really enjoy using them for oily skin. Recently, I got myself L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify, the black variant from L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Series and I am kind of Impress with it.
If you have read my Review of L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Red Exfoliate and Refine Pores then you would notice that I didn’t find that much effective and it didn’t do much for me. But this, the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black is really better than that and worked effectively for my oily and acne-prone skin.
I have used it quite a few times now and I am all set to share my experience.

Review – L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black
My Skin Type: Combination to Oily in Summers, Dry in Winters, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.
Packaging: It comes to a glass jar with a screw lid having a glossy finish giving it a luxurious look. The jar is transparent which means you can easily see how much the product is left.
The lid securely locks in place preventing it from any leakages. There isn’t much information on the jar, only instructions. All the information is on the outer box such as description, ingredients, and benefits but even on the outer box, there was no information related to price and the expiry date!
Fragrance: It has some chalky fragrance to it. While sniffing or applying, I could feel that chalky fragrance. The good part, it isn’t that strong or bothersome and gets away within a few minutes of application.
I start by applying an even layer on a cleaned face. The consistency of the mask isn’t thick and I was easily able to spread it all over my face smoothly.
While applying, I noticed that the quantity is really, really less. I could tell that I will hit the bottom after 3-4 uses only. This much less quantity makes it a costlier face mask.
After I applied an even layer of L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black all over my face, I allowed it to dry and it dried super quick. Within 2-3 minutes, more than half of my face was already dried.
After drying, it turns into a super hard rock. I wasn’t able to use my facial muscles or speak anything. I mean, I was but then it will result in cracks in the mask.
While it was drying, I noticed the tiny black dots on my nose, around my nose, on chin, forehead, and basically everywhere where I got open pores. All the sebum and excess oil got onto the surface which was oddly satisfying to me.
Some Unedited Pictures of me with L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black on –
The more time I gave, the more oil got collected onto the surface. After 15-20 minutes, I washed off L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black and the first thing I noticed was the smoothness of my skin. It felt like it removed all the tiny oil heads and resulted in smooth skin.
As far as the brightening effect goes, there wasn’t much anything major. Just the regular fresh and clean look which is there every time you go for a mask.
In terms of detoxification and purification, L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black really did a nice job. All the excess oil and pollution were out and there was a clean, detoxified, oil-free, and fresh look.
There wasn’t much difference in the size of the pores or visibility of the pores, neither immediately nor after the regular usage.
The only effect it gave which I really liked was it pulled out all the dirt, excess oil, and dust from the pores and revealing fresh, clean, soft, and smooth skin.
I could literally notice the smoothness all over my face.
But all these effects are temporary and lasts only a day maximum especially if you got oily skin and living in a hot and humid place like Delhi and NCR like I am.
I feel the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black is great for your weekly detoxification. It says to use it 2-3 times a week and you can for sure, if you got oily skin but considering the quantity, it will be over in a month If you will use it 3 times a week.
Also, the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Detoxify Black is only good for normal to oily skin. If you are a dry skin person and want to use it, you can but it might lead to further dryness so make sure you use intense moisturizers and use it once in 2 or 3 weeks maybe.
