If you're a masking freak, we don't need to tell you that drugstore offerings are few and far betweenespecially for that of the clay variety, which tend to be the most tried-and-true for all skin types. But fear not, my fellow enlarged-pore friends, as L'Oréal has come through with available-on-every-corner, cheaper alternatives to our beloved Kiehl's Rare Earth' Deep Pore Cleansing Masque (opens in new tab) (which you just can't find in the skincare aisle at CVS, you know?).

L'Oréal's new Pure-Clay Mask Collection boasts three masks, each tailored to address different skincare needs using mineral clays and unique ingredients sourced from all over the world. There's one that detoxifies, one that mattifies, and one that refines skin texture. So are we on the same wavelength yet? Because this sounds like a multi-masker' (opens in new tab)s dream trio to me. And as exciting as ridding yourself of impurities and excess oil in pursuit of that post-facial glow is, creating a patchwork-style work of art on your face is the real fun part.
