Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love clay products, they just feel earthy and less processed than other skincare products so I was excited to try this one. After using the Red Algae exfoliating scrub my skin felt super smooth, there was a bit of rough skin (probably from lack of exfoliating) around my chin and it sorted that right out. After a few week of using the product I noticed that the congestion around my jawline had settled down (it was still there to some degree, but not nearly as bad). I think this is a great product to have on had for anyone who gets breakouts, congestions or excessive oil/shininess. The price point is great so I'll buy again. \n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're in the market for a new cleanser I highly recommend looking in to the new L'Oreal cleansers!\nI think out of all three, this is my favourite cleanser. It is a really lovely cleanser, that works to remove make up really well and cleanse your skin. Best of all it doubles as a really gentle cleanser. With my dry skin lately it has been getting really flaky and no matter what I do I can't get rid of the flakiness. HOWEVER, using this cleanser has been working really well to help get rid of the flakiness, while removing make up, without irritating or disrupting my dry skin. \nMy skin feels really nice after using the cleanser too - soft and clean, but not like it's been stripped. The perfect start to my skincare routine!!\n\n

It delivers unbelievable results, cleansing deeply, removing grime and oil and gently exfoliating. it leaves skin glowing and smooth and soft with no harsh drying.This clay product feels earthy and natural and is really easy to use and rinses off well. I would buy this again for the results and absolutely for the great price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Loreal Pure Clay Exfoliating Scrub is a definite to keep in the beauty box!\nIt is hard to find an exfoliator that is not too harsh on the skin but still has just enough scrub to satisfy what you are looking for. \nThis is that happy medium product!!! It holds many benefits by using the red algae and keeps the mind clear that you're not using too many harmful chemicals on your skin.\nI find when using this correctly- work the product into the skin with your fingertips in circular massaging motion you will always get the best result and on my combination/normal skin it always have a smooth finish and a slight tightening feel (which I love as I feel like it's doing it's job).\nIf you're in the market for a new exfoliator that doesn't come with a hefty price tag this is for you! It works beautifully. \n

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this scrub.  The smell is beautiful, the exfoliation bits are small, the clay is soft and moist (not clumpy like some can be), and it's nice to use every day, especially at the end of the day. I did find it brought out a few pimples from the first few uses, which I guess is a good thing - doing it's job - but the more I use it I actually feel like my skin is becoming too tight.  Maybe I should use it every few days. Definitely would buy it and recommend it though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I trialed the L'Oreal Pure Clays Red Algae cleanser and loved it! It left my skin feel soft and supple. The gentle exfoliation left my skin feeling smoother almost immediately and after a few weeks my jaw line was noticeably smoother where I usually see a few bumps. FYI I would definitely recommend using the shower for ease of cleaning as the red algae/clay combo left a bit of a mess on my bathroom vanity! Wipes/washes away easily though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can always tell if a cleanser is doing its job by how much makeup is on my pillow the next morning, and this clay product left hardly any evidence at all. I wear a lot of makeup so getting it all off has been quite a challenge. I'll be getting more of this for sure as my skin felt smoother and I've not had any spots since using it.  I didn't find it too drying but I do use a very heavy night cream straight after cleansing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I heard amazing things about this new range and couldn't wait to try them. \nThe hard decision was between buying the scrub or the mask.\nThis product is amazing, it cleans your skin leaving it with a fresh glowing look. The best part is it removes all excess makeup left behind so you know that you are truly cleaning your skin. The bonus is the price is super affordable!!! \nI can't wait to try out the rest of the range.\n

What's the Best Clay Mask
For Your Skin Type

Keeping your glow in the cold weather is no easy feat. Drying it out and messing with its pH balance is just the beginning... but masks have got your back! Especially clay ones. They're supercharged with nourishing ingredients and detoxing benefits to help restore your skin to its radiant self. Find out what mask is right for your skin concerns, and don’t forget you can mix and match to create a personalised routine!

BEST FOR: Acne-prone skin

Clay is a top ingredient in face masks for acne thanks to its purifying and oil-absorbing properties. The Pure Clay Marine Algae Anti Blemish Mask contains montmorillonite clay to rebalance skin and reduce imperfections, ghassoul clay to absorb oil without irritating skin, and kaolin clay to purify delicate skin. The addition of marine algae extract works to tighten pores and clear blackheads.

BEST FOR: Dry skin

An unexpected ally for dry skin in winter is an exfoliating mask. The Pure Clay Exfoliating Mask is great for dry skin because the finely milled apricot seeds in the formula help scrub away flaky skin, and the creamy texture pampers in the process. Bye bye dryness, hello natural glow!

BEST FOR: Sensitive skin

Has the harsh weather left your skin feeling irritated and sensitive? Calm your complexion with the Pure Clay Soothing Mask. Hypoallergenic and formulated for sensitive skin, it contains soothing mallow flower extract to gently comfort, while the three pure clays take care of purifying the complexion.

BEST FOR: Blackhead-prone skin

Give your clogged pores a deep clean with the Pure Clay Detoxifying Mask. Delivering detoxifying benefits for winter skin, the black charcoal in the formula draws out impurities from deep within pores for visibly clearer and brighter skin.

BEST FOR: Dull skin

Lacklustre complexion? Go for a face mask that exfoliates and brightens in one, like the Pure Clay Brightening Mask. This brightening face mask contains yuzu lemon extract, which is rich in exfoliating fruit acids to boost skin radiance and improve skin texture.

BEST FOR: Oily skin

Pure Clay Eucalyptus Mask is a great face mask for oily skin as it is enriched with eucalyptus extract, which is known for its purifying properties, as well as three pure clays (kaolin, montmorillonite and ghassoul) to detox skin and soak up excess oil.

Five Ways
To Wake Up Hotter

When it comes to beauty sleep, what you put in is what you get out. Simple tweaks to your before-bed routine can make a world of difference with you waking up feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready to put your best face forward. They don't call it beauty sleep for nothing! Ahead, tips and tricks for enhancing your beauty game and making your #wokeuplikethis dreams come true.


Skin loses moisture while you sleep – about 25 per cent more than it does during the day. An overnight mask creates a permeable seal on top of your skin that makes everything underneath it penetrate better. As your face soaks up skin-saving solutions, elasticity and tone is improved over time. You wake up smooth and dewy without feeling greasy.


Are you prone to puffy eyes in the morning after a long night's sleep? Beat those undereye bags with an eye treatment such as Revitalift Filler Replumping Eye Cream. It contains hyaluronic acid, which helps fill lines and replump your skin.


Exposure to dry air and indoor heat while sleeping can sap moisture from the skin, leaving it dry, dehydrated and papery in the morning. Look for a slightly thicker cream, such as L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler (HA) Day Cream rather than your daytime moisturiser.


Work a protein-packed mask such as Elvive Re-Nutrition Deep Nourishing Mask through dry stands once or twice a week before bedtime and you’ll notice lusher locks in no time. Thanks to ingredients such as royal jelly and omega 6, this treatment produces long-lasting nourishment and hydration. Apply to slightly damp locks to better soak up the formula.


Silk bedding sounds like a frivolous luxury, but it’s worth it for its anti-ageing effects. Silk is a soft natural fibre that, unlike cotton, doesn’t absorb moisture from your face as you sleep. The satiny smooth finish also means waking up with fewer creases and wrinkles caused by indents from the material. This works for eliminating bends and kinks in your hair, too. Try wrapping your hair in a silk scarf for the same cushioning effect.

Skin Care

Want to improve your skin appearance?

Having the right beauty products is one thing but it's important to apply them in the right order to get optimal results.

The first step is pretty straightforward: Remove all traces of makeup and grime from the day using a cleanser.

After cleansing, swipe on a toner. Toner clears any residual dirt as well as helping to reduce the size of your pores whilst leaving the skin clean and fresh.

Next up, serums. A step not to be missed. Serums are more readily absorbed than moisturisers, delivering concentrated active ingredients where they are needed to help with a variety of skin concerns (think dryness, reduction in spots and blemishes, wrinkles).

Now is the time to apply eye cream. The active ingredients in eye creams are designed to be restorative and used on thin skin, so need to be applied ahead of moisturisers to ensure it can absorb properly (And act as a barrier) to be effective. Eye creams are not just for anti-aging purposes, they also address hydration to make your eye bag area appear plumper and full. If the eye cream you use has a metal lid or applicator this can be used to press against the skin for a cooling effect that will reduce puffiness.

Finally, apply moisturiser to keep all that goodness in. Moisturisers are incredibly important for all skin types to maintain a healthy level of moisture and of course an added bonus if your moisturiser contains SPF to prevent sun damage.
