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?

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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? 😀

  4. 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!

  5. ! 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!
