It has been a long long time since I last wrote a blog. To be honest, after taking a long break it gets harder to write one. Don’t you think so? Some of you already know that I was on a long holiday, 1 week in Germany and almost 3 weeks in Turkey. On Saturday, we will be driving to Scotland, Loch Ness, for a week holiday with husband’s mum. It will be a long drive, to be more precise, like 7-9 hours drive! Anyway enough with the mumbling, let’s get to the real topic… L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Foam Wash – Glow Scrub.

Teenage Ela was a fan of scrubs, it was basically the only cleanser I was using every day. I wish I had known that using a harsh physical scrub every single day isn’t good for my skin. You learn from your mistakes, don’t you? In the winter time, I struggle with dehydrated skin as well as some dry flakes and physical scrub is one way of removing these nasty dry flakes. I like L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Mask and when L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Foam Wash – Glow Scrub was released, I just grabbed it to give it a try.

Firstly, let’s start with the texture of the foam wash… It has a mousse like texture. It is way lighter and softer than the mask version. Due to the texture, it is so easy to make a big mess, so when I use it, I make sure that my hands are dry otherwise it gets all over the place. Think about red clay around your arms… It is not a pleasing view! I think mask has more micro-beads in it, therefore I find it more effective than the foam wash. Also even though, the name is “Foam Wash”, it doesn’t get foamy at all, I don’t know how they come up with that name.

I used way more effective scrub washes than this one, but I must say this is more gentle, however, it makes the skin smooth and flake free. In the end, you get what you pay for don’t you? If you are looking for a drugstore face wash, then you can add this to your list. It is only £3.99 for 150 ml and give a somewhat effective result.

Do you prefer physical or chemical scrub? Have you tried L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Foam Wash – Glow Scrub or any other product from this range?

Once I’m back, I’ll be more committed to the blogging and get back to my routine. When there’s so much going on and so many things planned, it gets impossible to get my head together. Sorry for my absence and looking forward to coming back to the blogging world as soon as possible!

  • Nice to see you back Ela! I prefer chemical exfoliants over physical but sometimes you can’t beat a good scrub! Haven’t tried this but it sounds lovely if it’s gentle!

  • Enjoy your holiday Ela, Scotland is great and you’re going to have a fabulous time!
    I wondered if I should try out this face wash, but I read mixed reviews so I decided not to. Sounds like a regular, okay product but not enough to make me get it. Ever since I discovered chemical scrubs I’ve been preferring them over physical scrubs, it’s more gentle on the skin (when you get the right product of course!)

    7-9 odd hours in a car, jeez that’s long! I don’t like it when a scrub is gentle, I like to know and see a visible difference and be able to feel it’s doing something for me. It’s quite cheap considering L’Oreal is one of the higher brands in the drugstore

  • I stay away from products with microbes in them because they are really bad for the environment so if it’s true that it’s one of the ingredient then I will never try this. 🙁

  • I totally know what you mean about how much harder it is to write a blog post the longer you have been away, I’ve been in the same boat for too many months!

    I really love the sound of this scrub but usually tend to stick to chemical exfoliants nowadays. I do miss the feeling of actually scrubbing the dead skin away though.. haha!

    Nice post Good

    We keep on looking for novel ideas for the parties we throw, especially for those we throw for our most loved ones. Parents try their level best to bring enough warmth to their kids birthday party. One interesting way to bring verve to such party is using Custom T Shirts for this very special day of your child. It is a wonderful way to enhance the guests involvement in the celebration. Moreover, your kid will sense the delight of sharing the happiness through this.
