Today I bring to you the Pure Clay Cleanser and Pure Sugar Face Scrub from L’Óreal review! Since I shared with you my latest skin care routine and now there have been some changes, I thought I might as well share them with you, specially when the results are so good!
For the past week I have been trying a new face care routine, or at least I have implemented some new products, and now that I’ve formed an opinion I wanted to share my experience with you.
A few months ago, some new face care products by L’Oreal Paris were released, following their Pure-Clay line. I had already tried and love one of these masks, specifically the black one, which really seemed to help bringing more light to my face and evening out my skin tone. Anyhow, though I liked it, it took me forever to use it up and I didn’t think or repurchasing it.
This was months ago, so when they released the two new masks (yellow and blue) and added them to their Pure-Clay line, I wasn’t really willing to buy them all in a rush. Also I read somewhere (I haven’t contrasted this information still) that all the masks of the line had basically the same ingredients but different colors. Though I didn’t confirmed that, it was a bit discouraging so I postponed trying the new ones for when I was feeling in a more ‘clay mask’ mood.
A few more months passed and then L’Oreal Paris released two more lines of products following these original line: the Pure Clay cleansing gels and the Pure Sugar face scrubs. The second ones really caught my attention and I kept seeing both lines in adverts and posts all over the internet, so at one point that I had some store credit in the skin care department, I thought it was time to give these two new lines a try even if it was only to confirm that they weren’t for me.
Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong!
I bought the Pure Clay Charcoal Detoxifying gel wash and the Purify and Unclog Sugar Scrub with kiwi seeds.
Here is what L’Óreal website says about them:
PURE CLAY DETOX & BRIGHTEN CLEANSER
Daily Cleanser with 3 Pure Clays and Charcoal. Detoxes & Brightens Dull, Tired Skin. Removes everyday impurities.
“L’Oréal Paris Skin Experts created our 1st range of clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that leave skin looking perfectly clear. Each cleanser is powered by 3 different clays in their pure form and enhanced with a nature-sourced ingredient. Indulgently formulated to seamlessly transform from clay-to-mousse, Pure-Clay Cleansers remove everyday impurities without overdrying. Pure-Clay Cleanser Detox-Brighten goes beyond daily cleansing to clarify and detoxify for skin that can breathe better. Immediately skin is purified of dirt, oil and pollution, and is left with a clean, clear healthy look. Skin looks revitalized with a fresh glow. Use after use, skin’s overall quality is improved. Dull skin appears more radiant and luminous. Skin looks more beautiful.”
PURE SUGAR PURIFY & UNCLOG FACE SCRUB
Deeply yet gently exfoliates for soft, smooth skin. Purifies & unclogs pores. 3 Pure Sugars + Kiwi.
“This Pure Sugar Scrub is made of three naturally derived sugars (brown, blonde & white) and enhanced with real Kiwi Seeds. This light, gel-like sugar scrub is truly kind to your skin. Because the scrubbing particles are made of sugars and eventually melt, harsh exfoliation is prevented. Purify and unclog pores for soft, smooth skin. See effective results immediately. With this exfoliating sugar scrub skin feels purified and clean. Dirt, oil and impurities are effectively removed. Dull skin is gently polished away. In 1 week: skin feels baby-soft, smooth and comforted. Pores look tighter, unclogged and less visible. Skin looks less shiny and rebalanced. Skin looks healthier, smoother, glowing. Can also be used to smooth and refine lips.“
My first impressions were positive, I loved the packaging, and the gel seemed really easy to use, which I always appreciate since I’m accustomed to more natural and organic skin care that usually tends to be a little messier. Both products looked great and got your expectations high with some fancy how to use instructions and sweet promises about a better skin.
I must say that the Kiwi Sugar Scrub smells DELICIOUS. Like, really amazing. And the Pure Clay Charcoal gel smells exactly the same as its mask version (the black one).
I’ll list the ingredients of both products down here so everyone can know beforehand if this is a product that they might be willing to try or not.

Both products work amazingly. It really was a surprise to find that they worked so well for me, a wonderful surprise I must say! I’ve been looking for some ‘easy’ skin care products that I can use whenever I don’t have that much time but that still do their job and don’t upset my sensitive skin. With these, I’ve found them where I least expected them. Let’s dive in each one of them!
Pure Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser with Charcoal
I use this now everyday, mainly at nights after I’ve removed my makeup or in the shower. The consistency is really great, it has a deep grey color and a fragrance that is the same of the Pure Clay mask of the same color. It foams up really quickly and after you have used it you feel your skin clean and smooth, almost as the same feeling you get with micropeeling products.
I’ve really grown to love it just through the start of my first tube. The packaging also is great for taking it anywhere you plan to sleep, or to the gym, the sink or the shower. It does an amazing job at reducing redness, pimples and blackheads. My skin hasn’t look smoother in a long time, and I must say that it is thank to this little gem. I’m really really happy I found it.
Also, you new very little product for each ‘wash’ so it really lasts a long time. If your skin is sensitive but on the oily/combination/acne prone zone, you have to give this a try!
Pure Sugar Purify and Unclog Face Scrub with Kiwi
This face scrub is really special due to two things. First of all, it is really dense and rich, and as much as it exfoliates your skin perfectly well, it also leaves your skin nourished, smooth and full of life. And second of all, the smell. The smell is so good that when I couldn’t decide which one of the three Pure Sugar face scrubs I wanted to try, I just had to buy this one for he smell (and the kiwi seeds too, that really pleased me). Luckily I can say that I didn’t make a mistake!
The sugar in this makes a perfect exfoliation, not harsh at all, the sugar almost seems partially melted into a rich creamy honey texture that replenishes your skin with shine and vitality at the same time that it gets rid of dullness and dead cells. It is all in all a delight to apply and have on. What I usually do is apply in the shower and leave it on for a minute before scrubbing it all and then rinse it of. This way I think I can get better advantage of this nourishing quality of it.
If you are looking for a good face scrub that leaves your skin amazing and smelling divine, this is the Pure Sugar scrub for you!
This line has other probably amazing products that I still haven’t tried. I’ll leave you with all the information about them directly from the L’Oreal website in case you are curious about them!
