Mask on, Mask off - Top 3 Kiehls Face Masks
If you follow me on social media you would know how I love face masking! Its honestly my favourite part of my skincare routine. I apply a cream, clay, or facial sheet mask about 4 times a week or whenever I feel my skin needs some extra TLC. Before splurging on a full size face mask, I would definitely suggest getting a few samples to try out beforehand as good quality masks can be expensive and may not agree with your skin depending on your skin type and the ingredients they contain.
First up is the Kiehls Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing mask. The perfect clay masque to balance oil control, to help clear breakouts and to minimise the appearance of pores. I cant live without this masque during the hot Summer months when my T-Zone becomes more oily! This Amazonian rich clay mask is quite thick in texture so a little goes a long way. I love the fact that its unscented so perfect for my sensitive skin, and can also be used as a spot treatment. Since wearing a face mask daily due to the Corona situation, this mask has helped me with clearing up breakouts on my chin and jawline. Its a winner!
My skin becomes particularly dry during Winter, especially since I live in Zagreb, Croatia, and the Winters can be long and harsh on the skin. The Avocado Nourishing Hydration mask is perfect for those with more drier skin types. The mask is free from sulphates, SLS, and parabens, the cleaner the ingredients list for me, the better! The ingredients list is packed with avocado fruit extract, avocado oil, evening primrose oil, to intensely hydrate, moisturise and soften skin. I usually apply this mask after Ive applied my clay mask to add moisture back into the skin. They are a perfect duo.
Saving the best for last, my current favourite facial mask from Kiehsl would have to be the Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance mask. And it does exactly that.
The texture is similar to a facial cream and clay mixed. Its creamy when you apply the mask, then dries like a clay mask would. After 15 minutes, I wash the mask off and voila! My skin is always looks brighter, more radiant and glowing after. The product claims to be a facial in a jar. I would never give up my professional facials at the salon, but this is a great pick me up facial mask with quick results, great to use before events. The mask contains tiny crushed cranberry seeds inside to give your skin a very mild exfoliation. Don't worry, its a very gentle exfoliation even for sensitive skin types. The formula doest break me out, which is huge deal breaker for me and my sensitive skin. It also doesn't contains any sulphates, SLS’s, and not tested on animals.
I could go on about the Kiehls Ginger Leaf and Hibiscus mask, which is a great lifting, and firming mask, but that another blog post!
