My Holy Grail Face Wash

I did it. I finally caved in and bought some L’Oreal skin care. Oh my god are they killing it right now. This face wash has quickly become my holy grail and I am totally obsessed with it.

If you haven’t guessed, I’m talking about the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Face Wash (what a mouth full!) L’Oreal do have a range of these face washes, including a redish one that aims to help you glow and a green one for purity, so if you don’t think a detox one is for you there are others available that may suit you more.

My friend recently let me try the Clay Mask that I have seen everywhere in the blogging community when my skin was really bad earlier this month and the instant improvement was honestly outstanding and something I have never had from a face mask before.

So… I decided to pick up the face wash.

I always have problems with face washes really drying out my already very dry skin so I get a little worried when it comes to trying new ones out. BUT, after getting on so well with the face mask I thought it was worth a shot.

The bottle is 150ml and you do need a fair amount in comparison to other face washes I have used in the past but the price is so damn low that is doesn’t really matter if you use it a little quicker than normal! It gently foams on your face and leaves you feeling clean and smooth after which is incredible and no overly dry skin for me!

The Superdrug website states the following ingredients that make it so amazing:

“KAOLIN a highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum
MONTMORILLONITE rich in minerals, a clay recognized for helping to eliminate imperfections
GHASSOUL a pure clay highly concentrated in minerals, renowned for helping clarify the complexion
RED ALGAE known for its brightening properties”

Well, there you go! I honestly would deem this my holy grail right now and I can’t imagine something tempting me any time soon, that’s for sure. If you’re interested, the face wash is currently on offer on Superdrug for £3.95 down from £5.99 and I would totally recommend picking it up.

Have you tried any L’Oreal skincare? What is your holy grail face wash?

    I will have to try that! 💚 As of yet, I have not tried L’Oreal xx

    I love my green clay mask by Le Petit Olivier. It’s quite cheap (6€ for 300 g) and it really leaves my skin feeling purified and clean. Best purchase ever. For a face wash I use a very inexpensive one by Clean&Clear (about 4€ for 150 g). It really cleans my sensitive skin, it’s great with impurities and black heads and you only need a small amount each time. I follow it by my Ives Rocher micelar water that lives my skin feeling super clean and tight. Aaaand I have described half of my face care routine in this comment. Sorry haha

      Ahhh no these all sounds great, you have a fantastic routine going on! Clay masks seem to do a world of good for your skin don’t they?! xx

    Hey just wanted you to know I tagged you in my weekly inspiration post!

    • June 12, 2017 / 11:13 pm

      What!? That’s amazing! Thank you so much, I’ll pop over now! xxx

  4. June 12, 2017 / 8:46 pm

    This sounds amazing, I need to try it💕

    • June 12, 2017 / 11:14 pm

      Definitely try it out, thank you for stopping by! xxx

  5. June 12, 2017 / 11:18 pm

    I just ran out of my cleanser so I might have to try this one!!!

    I try to minimize using products that aren’t cruelty free but for this I will try it out :). I’m currently loving the Acure pore clarifying facial scrub. I have sensitive skin so I was curious to see how it would work with my skin. I haven’t had a reaction with it and it leaves my skin smooth and helps minimize blemishes.

      I just got a similar comment from another darling on here… I thought they were sadly 🙁 My mistake! Oh really? That is so good that you found something that works! xxx

      • June 14, 2017 / 5:49 am

        yeahh I’m grateful for that 🙂 and who knows they might be in the near future.

    I have no face wash or anything. I have considered trying some, but I never know how my skin will react, and I use to have lots of acne problems when I was younger. I’ve been using nothing but warm water, and my skin seems to be okay… But, I may be willing to give L’Oreal a shot since they seem to be doing well, and on the cheaper side 🙂
    Worth a shot at least right? 😀

    • June 13, 2017 / 8:28 pm

      That’s so interesting! I often think that applying so many acne fighting things to my face is probably just making the situation worse! xxx

  8. June 13, 2017 / 8:49 am

    This looks so good! I love the face masks from l’oréal so I have to give this one a go. Great post, xx

    • June 13, 2017 / 8:27 pm

      Thank you lovely! I would definitely recommend it! xx

  9. June 13, 2017 / 9:14 am

    I never thought that clay could be used in a face wash, this looks really interesting!

  10. June 13, 2017 / 1:03 pm

    Ah if L’Oreal didn’t test on animals I would be all over this product! Great review xx.

    • June 13, 2017 / 8:26 pm

      Oh crap, are they not?! I checked their website when I bought it and I thought they didn’t?! 🙁 xxx

      • June 13, 2017 / 11:48 pm

        I think it varies on all of their products, so maybe you’re okay! xx.

      • June 18, 2017 / 2:18 pm

        I’m pretty sure that Lo’real used to test on animals, but very recently they have gone cruelty free – hence the confusion!

  11. June 13, 2017 / 2:51 pm

    Ohhh, I just heard about these and wanted to give them a try! I love the Pixi Glow Mud cleanser in the mornings, but as soon as I run out of it I’ll have to scoop up one of the L’Oreal ones.

    • June 13, 2017 / 8:23 pm

      Ohh I just read a post about that cleanser, would you recommend it then?! xxx

  12. June 13, 2017 / 10:27 pm

    That’s awesome! I didn’t realize they had face products! It’s nice to see cheaper brands give decent products for those who couldn’t afford/or don’t want to pay higher prices. Thanks for sharing!

    • June 14, 2017 / 7:02 pm

      Yeah they do some great skincare too! No problem, I’m glad you enjoyed it!! xxx

  13. June 15, 2017 / 12:46 pm

    I really want to try the face wash as I only have the mask atm and this sounds great! Must pick it up next time I see it! x

    • June 16, 2017 / 10:07 pm

      Definitely! Superdrug still have it on offer too I think! xx

  14. June 15, 2017 / 7:48 pm

    I’ve seen quite a few people talking about this; do you think it’ll work for oilier skin types? So glad i’ve come across your blog, I love it! x

    • June 16, 2017 / 10:04 pm

      Ah thank you so much, you’re amazing! Definitely, I would say it is more catered to oily or acne prone/blemish prone skin than anything else xxx

    • June 18, 2017 / 10:52 pm

      Thank you so much for stopping by! You guys definitely should! Xx

    • June 18, 2017 / 10:50 pm

      I would recommend it for you then as it seems like something that would really benefit you!! Xx

    • June 18, 2017 / 10:49 pm

      Thank you lovely! You totally need to, you can grab it for such a good price in Superdrug too! Xx

  15. June 26, 2017 / 8:02 am

    I really want to try this face wash everyone talks about it! I can’t believe the price I thought it was going to be a lot more! So glad it’s worked well for you!

    • June 27, 2017 / 11:12 am

      Go for it!! Especially when it’s on offer too! So cheap! Xxx

    • July 6, 2017 / 10:00 pm

      No problem lovely! I would totally recommend it! That and the corresponding face mask that they do xx

  16. July 18, 2017 / 11:11 am

    ! I’ve been meaning to get one of these too, since I’ve had some great experiences with other L’Oreal products so was hoping this one would do the trick too… thanks for the great review!

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:27 pm

      No problem lovely, I would totally recommend it! xx
