This $13 face mask works so well even your boyfriend will notice
Forget Dr. Jart. Forget Dr. Brandt. The only face mask you’ll ever need again is made by L’Oreal — and you can get it a drugstore near you.
I’ll do just about anything to get better skin. I’ll try bougie sheet masks that cost $8 a pop, I’ll try questionably cheap face masks from Amazon, hell I’ll even cover my face with Pepto-Bismol.
What? I’m desperate. Internet writers can’t afford to get laser treatments like celebrities and trust fund babies.

But no matter what I’ve used, most of the time I’d have to trick myself into seeing a real, noticeable difference in my face.
Which is why when my editor told me I should try L’Oreal’s clay face mask because it was actually great, I was like, sure Jan.
It’s not that I didn’t trust her opinion, it’s just that I’ve gotten jaded about face masks. Especially ones that prominently feature a buzzy ingredient.
But you know what?
She was right.
L’Oreal’s clay face mask is actually great.
As soon as I opened up the jar, I was pleasantly surprised by how blue the face mask was, which led to make a hackneyed joke about being blue da ba di da ba die on Instagram.
After 15 minutes had passed, I washed it all off and even my skeptic ass had to admit my skin did look better.
Looking into the mirror, my skin looked like the kind of skin you’d expect to see on somebody who drinks eight glasses of water a day and gets more than five hours of sleep in a night. My skin was brighter and smoother, and my one pimple looked way less red and puffy.
Even my boyfriend noticed when he got home from work and sometimes he doesn’t realize for a couple of hours that I’ve put on contacts.
Like I’m not even lying when I say I can’t wait until I get to use it again tonight — per the box’s instructions, you’re only supposed to use this 1-2 times a week and I used it last Friday so let’s just say it’s been a long weekend.
And you don’t need to schlep to Sephora to get it! You can just to your local drugstore. Or if they don’t have it, you can just go a bigger one down the block. Or you can save yourself the trip and just buy it online.
L’Oreal may not be known for their skincare, but trust me, this is $13 you won’t regret spending.
