REVIEW | L'OREAL PURE CLAY GLOW SCRUB



You guys know I am already a huge fan of the L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask which I reviewed last September so when I saw this brand new skincare product on their Instagram I eagerly awaited for it to be on the shelves of my local Boots. The L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub (£4) possessed the same startlingly terracotta orange hue and is marketed as an everyday scrub used to exfoliate and cleanse the skin both in the morning and in the evening. I love scrubs and exfoliation is my favourite and the most treasured step in my skincare routine. You get 150ml of product with this scrub and it is packaged in a squeezy tube with a flip-up lid, not unscrewable praise Jesus. I bought this scrub months ago and the reason I waited so long to review it is because you really need to give skincare products a fair trial. As a beauty junkie, I purchase new products all the time and I can tell when I like a product or when a product produces effective results if it stays in my routine. So when I say I have been using this for months, I do mean months. For reference, I have oily/combination skin which means, because I get a lot of emails asking about my skin type, that I have an oily T zone and dry areas mainly on my chin and some on my cheeks. Not dry patches, just dry areas. 


The ingredients in this scrub are pretty amazing. It is the red algae, which is the ingredient that brightens the skin, that gives it that intense orange colouring. The 3 clays included in this formula are kaolin (known for absorbing impurities and excess sebum), montmorillonite (known for clearing up imperfections) and ghassoul (known for its clarifying benefits). It also contains salicylic acid which is phenomenal for combating acne. There is, however, fragrance and sodium laureth sulphate, which in large amounts can cause skin irritation, so be weary if you do have sensitive skin. It does state on the rear of the tube that it is suitable for oily/combination skin so I am not sure if people with dry skin would benefit from this product. 


The only downside of the squeezy tube packaging is that I always release too much product, you really only need very little, just a tiny blob of product. It smells really good, just like most clay masks smell but this scent is a little fresher and lighter probably due to the fragrance in there. Even after using this for months it still looks like I have a fairly full bottle, which is just crazy. The texture of the scrub is gorgeous, thick and creamy with a bit of grit and when you apply it to your face it feels so cleansing. Like it is digging deep into your pores and casting out all the crap. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, fresh, clean and weirdly energised. I can't say that it brightens my skin or eradicates imprefections but it helps my skin to feel balanced and rejuvenated once I have used it. A great morning scrub. This is truly a gem and I do think it's a must-have for anyone with large pores, acne or oily to combination skin. You can see below what it looks like blended out on my hand.


Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this review, writing it made me realise how happy I am to have discovered this scrub. It has replaced my Neutrogena and St Ives scrubs completely. I already want to buy a back up, although I don't see it finishing anytime soon. Hope you guys are enjoying the week so far, please leave me a comment and let me know what your favourite daily skincare holy grails are.

  10. I've never used L'Oreal skincare products before, this one looks like a great place to start, considering I have the same skin type as you. It seems to be quite effective and I love that it's in the tube and not a jar, like many clay masks typically are, so it makes for a great option when traveling! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  12. I love a good skincare find.... especially one that is priced as well! I agree, squeeze tubes usually make me end up putting out more! I do have pretty sensitive skin, so I may need to check out a few reviews ahead of time and see!

  13. This looks like a lovely scrub, and I like that the granules don't look too big either. I used to use the St. Ive's scrub but found the larger granules too harsh in the long run.

  26. Holy cow, the price is so great! I think the masks are more than $10 in the US so I assumed the cleansers would be similarly priced. I'll have to keep my eye out for this cleanser cause it sounds really promising!

  29. This product sounds amazing, especially as you've replaced your St Ives with this (& I'm in love with St Ives!) but I have dry skin so I'm not sure how well it'd work with me. My favorite skincare product right now is definitely the Glossier balm! It's saving my chapped lips like CRAZY.
