L’Oreal Pure Clay Charcoal Mask – Detoxifying & Clarifying (Black)

REVIEW: L’Oreal Pure Clay Charcoal Mask – Detoxifying & Clarifying (Black)

Recently some of my blogger friends highly recommended me a facial mask that had just launched few days back. I usually don’t get interested in all the newly launched cosmetics, as everyday some new brand is being introduced or an established brand is launching their new line. Therefore, it gets pretty tough for a working woman like me to keep track of all the happenings in the beauty/fashion world – but there are few well-known brands which I really pay attention to, and when it comes to cosmetics, it has always been brands like L’Oréal Paris, Maybelline New York, Garnier and of course Color Studio Professional.

It’s really sad that we don’t have brands like Nars, NYX, Tarte or even E.L.F Cosmetics available in malls or even super markets. In pakistan, we don’t have the luxury to go out and buy my favorite brands from malls so I fulfill my cosmetics lust by ordering these brands from http://just4girls.pk. They claim to be Pakistan’s No.1 cosmetics website – so far I agree, because they keep introducing so many new brands and working women like me can order online with ease. Their service is absolutely spot on from order confirmation, to customer service, to delivery.
My blogger friends had recommended me to try the facial clay mask introduced by L’Oreal Paris in Pakistan. I was curious about the hype, which lead me to read some beauty blogger reviews which were quite good. I decided to order L’Oreal Pure Clay Charcoal Mask- Detoxifying & Clarifying Black from http://just4girls.pk, as going outside in this summer heat made absolutely no sense! I got my order delivered within 4 days, and I was so excited to finally try the L’oreal Pure Clay Mask.

After using the mask, I can say all the bloggers reviews were really worth it as it gives results immediately. I used the product for around a month, and my skin started glowing. I just love the product, and I strongly recommend it, especially in this weather when you need to focus on your skin. It’s soothes your skin, detoxifies it, makes it clearer and nourishes the skin with the right kind of ingredients.

The mask is available in all major cosmetics stores in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad – but I would recommend to take from legit stores as there are too many fake products available with same packaging. I bought it online from Just4Girls.pk, and I can say with confidence they will sell the authentic and original products. Lastly, it’s a must use product and I strongly recommend it.

Designing a Skincare Regime

Everyone’s skin type is different, according to their lifestyle, what they eat, where they live and how much water they drink.

No matter how your skin behaves, a committed skincare regime is necessary. Designing a skincare routine is not easy – after all, at the end of an active day, pampering your skin can be the last thing on your mind. However, the more you care for your skin, the better it will be years on from now.

Makeup Remover/Toner

Makeup remover is a necessity. Many prefer to wash their face straight on, but makeup removers cleanse and purify your pores so thoroughly – when you do wash your face afterwards, the cleanser will do the rest and there will be no clogged pores left.

I love using the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water. It soothes, hydrates skin and removes oil, dirt and other impurities – without stripping your skin or being harsh.

Lip Care

In the summer heat, lips can get dry, chapped and rough around the edges. Make sure to use a lip scrub to keep your lips soft and moisturized.

Our favorite is the ELF Lip Exfoliator, and follow it up with an EOS Lip Balm Sphere for complete care and nourishment.

Facial Cleanser

Choosing a facial cleanser depends on a variety of factors. For example, what is your skin type? What are you expecting your of your cleanser?

My skin tends to be combination. I needed a facial cleanser that keeps my skin looking bright, balances the oils but doesn’t strip my skin dry. Andalou Naturals (Brightening) Meyer Lemon Creamy Cleanser did all that, and I love how refreshed it leaves my skin!

Exfoliating and Nourishing

Andalou Naturals (Clarifying) Lemon Sugar Facial Scrub smells yummy, brightens your skin and keeps it clear! I love following it up with Andalou Naturals Quenching Coconut Milk Firming Mask.

After every 3 days, I make sure to treat my skin with a thorough pampering session. L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks are a treat! I use the L’Oreal Pure Clay Charcoal Mask and L’Oreal Pure Clay Red Algae Mask alternatively.

Night Care

Make sure to use a night cream! Your skin is at it’s best repairing powers at night when you sleep. Aiding this process with a night cream powers it up!

Making routine use of Andalou Naturals (Brightening) Purple Carrot + C Luminous Night Cream results in a luminous, glowing complexion in the morning.

Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from the sun is an immensely important step in skincare. Oriflame Sun Zone UV Protector protects you from the sun’s harsh rays with 50SPF, and is also water resistant.

What’s in My Makeup Bag?

Beauty Trends change over time according to season, fashion trends and personal tastes.
In the summer I’ve been craving daring, bold colors – but I love some staple nude shades all the same. A good, voluminous mascara is a must, and I’ve found a combination of really awesome, no-budge foundations recently.
Let me share what’s in my makeup bag at the moment!

Your base will only be as flawless as your makeup tools.
Makeup Sponge
I LOVE the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Unlike other beauty blending sponges, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponges are designed with one flat edge, so you can choose between the flat edge and the narrow point along with the round body to apply your foundation. I like to use the sponge damp to apply my foundation, and a dry sponge to apply any setting powders.
MUA Makeup Brushes
These are a TREASURE. For their price, they are very good in quality – dense, soft, and well made, with a professional feel. Must have!

Foundation
Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation
I am absolutely in love with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation. An absolute steal for their price tag of only Rs 1148, the foundation mattifies skin, provides even medium-full coverage and has a stunning variety of shades.
L’Oreal Total Cover Foundation
A little on the pricey side but well worth it. The foundation provides full coverage and has a weightless, whipped, mousse like texture that melts into your skin. The blending power of this foundation is serious! The foundation stayed well over 6 hours, in this summer heat! My only gripe with this is the limited shade range.
Masarrat Misbah Silk Foundation
Another long-staying foundation that will not move – lasts and lasts throughout the day! Provides full coverage and covers up any dark spots and marks. Controls oiliness. Well worth buying!

Blushers
MUA Whipped Velvet Blush are a favorite of mine right now. These cream-gel formulated blushers melt onto your cheeks, and give the most amazing color.
Current favorite shade: Spry, which gives the most beautiful natural glow.
Luscious Blush in Coral Glow – Summer is all about a gorgeous glow. Peach and orange shades tend to add a youthful glow on your face, and Luscious Blush in Coral Glow is one of the prettiest peachy blush shades!

Highlighter
Hard Candy Just Glow! Baked Illuminating Powder Duo provides a soft, beautiful glow. Two shades in one. Current favorite highlighter!
Brows
Luscious Brow Luxe Eyebrow Designer Pencil is a dupe for ABH Brow Pencil. This AMAZING item stays on your brows no matter how much you sweat! I use the shade 03.
TIP – if you have really dark hair and dark brows, use one shade lighter to shape your brows. If you have lighter (dyed) hair, use the same shade as your dyed hair or a darker shade.

 

Lips

A girl never has enough lipsticks! My current lip favorites include:
Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil – 210 Keep It Classy
A pretty muted berry matte shade.
MUA Luxe Vivid Colour Lipstick – Rocket
A gorgeous bright shocking pink.
Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Lip Color – Truffle
Hard Candy Mousse Lip Colors have a soft, weightless and long staying formula. Truffle is s smokey mauve metallic shade.

Makeup Remover
Garnier Micellar Water + Micellar Wipes
A makeup remover that cleanses, tones, removes stubborn makeup but is gentler than tap water? It’s a dream! I love using the wipes too, when I’m in a rush for bed 😀
ALL these current favorites and quality items are available to order at Just4Girls.pk!

Favorite 4 Sunscreens that will give you comfort this summer!

Not to rain on your late spring parade, but rather here are a couple of realities that ought to wake you up from your margarita-and-sun-incited trance like state, driving you to take a major whiff of sunscreen: The rate of melanoma (a fatal type of skin disease) isn’t going anyplace – an expected 73,870 new instances of intrusive melanoma will be analyzed in the US this year.

5 best facemasks available at Just4girls.pk

I spend the vast majority of my late spring in a clay mask. I return home from work, sprinkle some water all over, and after that I mask it in mud for whatever length of time that I can stand it. I cook, I have individuals over, I do clothing, and some of the time I even nod off with it still all over. It’s not as trivial as it sounds: The more I do it, the better my skin gets. What’s more, for a very long time, I would go for the more extraordinary masks—the ones that vibe like an octopus drawing your go head to head.
