Review: L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores

review1

I was excited to see the budget friendly masks online and moved to the counter as soon as I reached my local store.

First I was interested in getting the L’Oreal Pure Clay Purify and Mattify clay mask (green one) but was informed by the salesperson that it works well with oily skin and will give a smooth & mattifying look.

I retracted because I have dry skin; however, she suggested the Pure Clay Exfoliate and Refining pores clay mask with red algae to revive dry/dull skin.

Apply a nice even layer not to thin, covering the neck area leaving it for 10-15 mins max. Take room temperature or warm water, just sprinkle some water on to the fingers and massage the skin softly.

DO NOT wet hands and remove the mask, the key is to keep it wet enough that the massage can be done easily without skin being pulled or stretched harshly. This will clean & remove dead skin, open clogged pores and makeup impurities. Clean with a wash cloth in the end.

The mask has a strong scent which I did not like, however, the after effects are soft and supple clean skin which shows slightly after the first use but if you regularly apply it weekly, it has helped my skin to be even and smooth. Meanwhile, I have not seen the brightening effect claim as of yet.

I’ve been using it for a month, once a week only. It does suggest you can use it 2-3 times a week however, I’m skeptical about using scrub type masks too often as the skin can get irritated due to the grains. At times I did use to before attending an event or for special occasions which would make it twice a week.

Scrub/mask: 8/10

Repurchase: 6/10

Style Files: Day to Night Fall

My first fall outing

ootd-33

I wore a denim shirt (could be a denim jacket as well) for the day and went without it at night. The jogger pants are super comfortable and look dressy as well. Paired the look with a classic fall red lip and maroon nails.

Happy Birthday Kim Kardashian-West.

The reality star known for her flawless selfies, makeup and bold outfit choices either has haters or lovers there are no in betweens. Here are some of her best moments!

The blonde hair and the lob were my favourite!

red lip

Though she mostly goes with the nude lip I think she looks amazing in glossy and matte red shades.

Most of her styles fall into the neutral palette, however I collected a group of pictures which are not only her best looks but also gives us great fall/winter colors and outfit inspiration and the ombre on the left is goals!

Mid-Week happenings

It’s mid week (hump day lol) and I decided to come out black and white. The mood is stern for the grind                                      to the weekend bloggers,  I have to say my heels made up for my slouchy mood. Painted my nails apple green reminds me of Halloween some how.OOTD1-1 I kept makeup minimal and focused on a bright pink lip (Revlon Just Bitten in Lovesick) that just adds a zing to my mood.

Brewing-Outfit of the day

ootd2-2

It’s still hot out here hence I decided to go with a light traditional long shirt (kurta)  with minimal colors and print. This is how we do ‘dress over pants’. I chose chunky bangles and decided to go with slightly more makeup on the eyes than I do on other days.  I kept the lips nude and chose to continue with strobbing on the face (here) , sadly as I was in hurry so I could not grab a picture for the completed face look.

I have been trying out the Lorac Pro (1) palette lately and loving it. The shades used here are mauve on the lid, sable and espresso on the corners and light pink on the tear duct area. Ohh and I also forgot to put mascara altogether.

LOL I look funny!

Nail on Point

nails_main_art_a_l

This winter season will see some bright hues in addition to classic deep shades. The statement making colors will undoubtedly be deep emerald green, royal blue and maroon, nude will remain a classic come summer or winter. The mint and orange will all look great with mustard, marsala and rust shades.

For people with wheatish/tan/olive skin tones remember to select metallic finish or add shiny top coat to keep your skin tone looking fresh. I have noticed sometimes white and maroon colors can make my skin look dull, keeping the shine really upgrades the look of the hands and skin.

FriYAYYY-Outfit of the day

Megan-Hess2

This weekend I decided to opt for white pants with the gingham top I rediscovered in my closet. My Friday was spent running errands and the long tunic style top allows movement and ease while I am on my feet.

Makeup and accessories were kept minimal as it’s hot out here and I don’t feel like putting on much during an errands run. However painted my nails in deep hues to get the Autumn mood on and  used my favourite Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 31.

October Must-Haves

InezVinoodh-b

Since I am keeping myself from buying new products doing a favourites post is becoming difficult. However, I still have a few things to share, moreover I am keeping this as October favourites because I have changed a few things in my routine and want to continue with it in the coming months!

1. Deep dark nails

It’s a must to have a few deeper shades in your closet for the winter months hence I grabbed a maroon  which totally sets the mood for the season.

2. Rosy red

Rimmel Kate Moss lip shade in 31 is the best mix of pink and red, I find the color to be a good pick for work and play.

3. Strobbing

Now, I’m a contouring girl but decided to give strobbing a chance. This technique works out marvelously in the dryer months as the skin needs a pick me up treatment. With the right products the sheen on the cheeks results in a fresh outlook.
