Review | L'oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub

Glowy skin, we all seem to want it. Recently I have been feeling that my skin has been looking really dry and really dull. If I could compare it to a colour then I would say my skin were currently grey and in need of a little bit of TLC. I decided to look for a product to perk it up a little and rather than go for a face mask which is a once or twice a week temporary fix, I would prefer a product to use daily to help keep my skin looking as bright and as fresh as possible.

Whilst I may be a little bit slack when it comes to applying face masks as routinely as possible, I loved the results that the L'oreal Pure Clay Face Masks gave when they first came out last year - the Glow version in particular really helped my skin brighten up due to the red algae within. When I was on my hunt for a daily brightening fix, I came across the same product but in scrub form, meaning that not only will it brighten and perk up my skin but it will exfoliate it as well. If you have been after something to really liven up your skin which is purse friendly then you definitely need to try the L'oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub.

About the L'oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub:
"The L'Oréal Paris Laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with Red Algae extract in an exfoliating scrub, for brighter, smoother and fresher skin, every day. Its non-drying texture transforms into a light foam and releases the micro-beads, which exfoliate impurities and dead skin cells, leaving skin smoother and brighter."

The L'oreal Pure Clay Scrubs come in three different variations, each of which match up to the already popular L'oreal Pure Clay Masks. We have the Pure Clay Purity Scrub which is aimed at cleansing, purifying and mattifying, the Pure Clay Detox Scrub which is aimed at cleansing, clarifying and detoxifying and finally my favourite, the Pure Clay Glow Scrub which is aimed at cleansing, brightening and exfoliating.

The L'oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub is made up of the following three 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
Also within the Pure Clay Glow Scrub is Algae which is known for its brightening properties. I really love clay based products and the effects they have on the skin, which is why I have enjoyed each and every face mask within this range already.

The Glow Scrub itself comes in a 150 ml squeezy tube which is much easier to apply than the face mask is. The scrub is a typical clay red colour which has little exfoliating particles running throughout the pretty thick but creamy formula. You have to apply the scrub to a wet face then gently rub into the skin in circular motions to let the exfoliating scrubby bits do their work. They aren't too harsh on the skin and feel quite gentle as they are rubbed into the skin, although I do prefer a slightly harsher exfoliant. The scrub does have a noticeable smell to it because of the algae and other ingredients within the product but I don't find it to be too unpleasant. I found that after I had applied the scrub and had dampened my muslin cloth to wipe it all off, the area of scrub which I had applied first had started to dry, just like the mask does so I am not sure if it is a bit 2 in 1 but when left on longer than necessary it does dry down and in my eyes, it can be used like a facial mask also.

When wiped away with a warm damp cloth, the skin is left feeling incredibly smooth and soft. Gone were the horrible and rough dry patches on my face, instead my skin felt so smooth and refreshed. Whilst I can't say my skin looked any brighter than usual after just one use, my skin had perked up and it was left feeling incredibly smooth. I will continue to use this facial scrub twice a day to see how it continues to benefit my skin but so far I am impressed and it has been the product my skin has definitely been needing!
