L’Oréal Detox Face Mask – Review 



L’Oreal Pure Clay Facial Masks. For the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with charcoal, which acts like a magnet to draw out impurities. The creamy texture detoxifies the skin’s surface by cleansing deep into the pores, leaving the skin looking clarified and beautified without drying it out.

A powerful blend of 3 pure clays

Koalin A highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum.

Montmorillonite Rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections.

Ghassoul A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify complexion.Instant and lasting, visible results. Immediately: skin is purer and clearer.Use for one week: skin feels fresher, and more luminous.Use after use: skin can breathe and is visibly transformed.


I use the mask twice a week. 

Pros- 

  • Affordable 
  • Detoxes skin well
  • Helps clear skin
  • Leaves my skin Luminous 
  • Easy to store


Cons –

  • Sometimes not available in store


Also this face mask is an affordable alternative to the GlamGlow Super Mud Mask. They both work well for me.

Nyx Total Drop Foundation- First Impression 

From a sheer, subtle wash to a full, flawless finish, your ideal coverage is just a few drops away with this silky-smooth foundation from NYX Professional Makeup. With 24 shades – from ‘Pale’ to ‘Deep Espresso’ – you can find the perfect velvety matte for your complexion and fine-tune your coverage with the convenient dropper-tipped applicator.


Used the shades Golden Honey and Caramel. Shade 14 and 15 mixed together. 

How I applied the foundation-

  • Used benefit porefessional primer 
  • Applied two drops on my forehead, cheeks. 
  • Then used all of it to blend all over face
  • Added one drop on each cheek to have more coverage 
  • Used Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray to makeup sure the makeup stayed in place

Through out the day-

  • It caked up around my nose
  • The foundation transferred onto my fingers when I touched my face
  • Kind of made parts of my look really dry

What I think I should do next time I wear this foundation 

  • I should have a very hydrated base- Moisturiser and Primer. 
  • Use a Hydrating setting spray as a primer and setting spray 
  • Use less round my nose

Foundation Fail- Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation 

What it is: 

A long-lasting foundation powered by Amazonian clay that imparts a matte finish. 

What it does: 

Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing, skin-perfecting formula with UVA/UVB SPF 15. It’s full-coverage and supremely blendable and buildable formula has a weightless texture and is available in a broad range of shades. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT: 

– Parabens 

– Sulfates 

– Phthalates 

What else you need to know: 

Whether skin is oily, dry, or combination, “skin-smart” Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to meet and address your skin concerns for makeup that wears better, longer, and truer. This revolutionary foundation reduces the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections and ensures a perfectly flawless complexion every time. 
My skin type is combination. 

This foundation didn’t apply well on to my skin and I used the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer. This is my go to primer. 

The foundation blended out well and I blended it with the black beauty blender, but the foundation started to cake up on my dry areas. 

My powders were not blending well with the foundation. 

The foundation didn’t last long. 

It did cover well but still I could see my hyper pigmentation. 

Overall, I did not like this foundation, it doesn’t work well for me.

Tips for Sweat Proof Makeup 

Due to the hot weather recently in the UK, I have some tips for sweat proof makeup. Usually on hot days I don’t wear makeup if I don’t have to go out. And I always wear SPF. 

1. Use an oil control setting spray before and after makeup. I recommend the Urban Decay Oil Control Setting Spray. Also I use the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray to help my makeup last longer. 

2. Use a primer, so you don’t get very oily and it helps your makeup last. I use the Soap and Glory one heck of a blot Primer. 

3. Try not to wear heavy makeup. I usually wear my L’Oréal true match foundation it gives me good coverage, allows my skin to breath and good longevity. 

4. Keep Oil blotting sheets on hand

5. Wear water proof mascara. Or no mascara. 

6. Make sure that you Powder where you get oily. I like the beauty bakerie loose flour powder this helps my oil stay at bay.

Favourite Face Powder- Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder 

Beauty Bakerie is such a cute brand. That has a lot of amazing products. I’ve been trying their Setting Powder for a week now and it’s replaced my love for the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. 

I have the shade Translucent. The Setting Powder comes in four shades. 

I use the powder to set my under eyes and I used a damp beauty blender to do that. And to set my face I used a Morphe powder brush. The powder is very finely milled. 

This powder set my makeup really well and I only had to top up on powder once on the center of my forehead. 

This powder lasts really well through out the day. 

I really recommend this powder especially if you have a combination skin type. 

It also comes in this cute packaging.
