La Muse Lumiere Purifying Mask Review
After living and breathing Korean beauty and skincare for nearly four years, I’d say I am hard to surprise. And yet, there are products that absolutely blow my socks off. One of those products is La Muse Lumiere Purifying Mask.
La Muse is a professional Korean spa brand founded by an esthetician who wanted to bring top quality products to people’s homes. By Sophie beauty boxes have featured different La Muse products, and that’s how I acquired this one.
The Lumiere Purifying Mask promises to brighten, improve elasticity, prevent and help heal breakouts, and reduce signs of aging. Spoiler alert - I love it so much that it’s in my Spring favorites video. This mask is available on YesStyle.
La Muse Lumiere Purifying Mask is a clay mask, but I’m almost reluctant to call it that. That’s because it differs from any other clay mask I’ve tried. The product combines kaolin with a berry complex to brighten and purify the skin. The pink masse is creamy in texture and has a very pleasant berry smell.
This mask is marketed to people with uneven skin tone, oily skin, large pores, and dull complexion. I actually think it would work for all skin types, as it’s incredibly gentle (but effective) and not at all drying.
How to use:
Apply after cleansing
Leave on for 10 minutes
Gently rinse off
Follow with the rest of your skincare routine (I like to do a hydrating sheet mask)
This was love at first use for me. For years I stayed away from clay masks, because they were too harsh and drying (I also made the mistake of allowing them to dry to basically cracking on my face - something I no longer do). La Muse Lumiere is different. It’s very gentle and makes my skin so soft and smooth.
I noticed a reduced appearance of sebaceous filaments (not to be confused with blackheads) and therefore a much better overall look of pores. My oil-water balance has also improved. This is so important for someone with combination skin like mine. Some areas are oily and some are dry, so it’s crucial for a product to improve the oily t-zone while not drying out the rest of the face. This mask is successful in that.
Overall, this is easily in my top 10 favorite Korean beauty products. Maybe I should actually create a list like that… Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
I definitely recommend looking into this awesome mask. It’s priced as more of a luxury product (which makes sense considering the brand’s goals and founder), but the jar is huge and each application only uses a little bit. I think it will last me a long time. Plus, it’s amazing.
