The New Face Masks You Need In Your Life

I have been seeing the multi-masking trend all over Instagram for awhile now, with people overseas using these L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks, so when I saw all three of these masks in my goodie bag from the L'Oreal event I went to (you can read all about the event here), I was very excited! 

If you're not sure what multi-masking is, multi-masking is when you use more than one mask on different areas of your face. For example, if you get oily through your T-zone, you might want to use the grey Detoxify + Brighten mask there, and then use a different mask on the rest of your face. Basically, you want to think about what the different skin concerns are that you have, and put the right mask to address that concern on that area. But of course you don't need to multi-mask, and you can use one mask alone (although painting your face with different coloured masks DOES make using face masks even more fun!). 

Detoxify + Brighten [With Charcoal]: This mask is my favourite of the 3! If you have ever tried the Glam Glow Super Mud mask, this one is very comparable. When the mask starts to dry, you can see darkened areas where the mask has pulled excess oil and gunk out of your skin, which is gross but so satisfying! 

My skin feels really soft and clean after using this so it would be a great mask to use when you've been wearing a lot of makeup and want a really thorough clean, or on any areas where you have some congestion you want to clear up, and particularly good for oily skin. 

Purify + Mattify [With Eucalyptus]: This was my second favourite mask, and it made a noticeable difference to the smoothness of my skin. I particularly noticed the effect of it the day after, when I put foundation on and noticed how much more smoothly my makeup was sitting on my face. 

This would be a great mask to use on any areas where you have texture on your skin, and just a generally great pick me up, no matter what skin type you have. 

Exfoliate + Smooth [With Red Algae]: This one has finely milled apricot seeds in it to help exfoliate your skin. This was quite good as a soft exfoliator (although you definitely notice and feel the apricot seeds, they are not too rough at all), but I didn't notice quite as much of a difference with this mask, as I did with the other two. 

I would say that this mask would be more suited to someone who doesn't have any major skin concerns, and just wants something to lightly exfoliate and refresh their skin. 

So I have to say I am very impressed, and there is definitely a good reason why I've been seeing so many photos of everyone using them! And guess what? They're only $24.99 each, which is an absolute bargain! Have you given multi-masking a go yet?
