These two, new Kiehl’s masques landed on my desk the other day, and I’m excited to tell you gals all about them as they launch this month in February!
First up, I absolutely love the Kiehl’s brand! I had such great results during my 4 week/ 28 day skin challenge and since then my love for this brand has grown and grown. One of the things that I really love about Kiehl’s is how the packaging tells you exactly what you need to know! No fancy words you’d need a chemistry qualification to understand! The names of the products might be long, but even the most clueless of skin peeps will be able to know and understand what the product is all about, making life a little easier, which is always a good thing!
Now let’s talk about these fabulous face masques shall we?
Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque
Based on the insight and understanding that pollution negatively affects the integrity of the skin, as much as it does the lungs and cardiovascular system, Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque has been designed to defend and replenish the skin. A masque that helps to reduce the visible affects of pollution, while at the same time, preventing impurities from adhering to the skin.
Pollution damages the skin’s natural protection mechanisms which result in tired, older, and dull looking skin. When your skin isn’t healthy, it shows! And while we can’t do much about eliminating pollution, we can bring in a powerful skin product to help protect our skin as much as possible.
Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque is formulated with two main ingredients that help to fight skin damage and strengthen the skin.
To fight skin damage, Orange Extract, sourced from the dried young fruits of Bitter Orange, cultivated from the Mediterranean as well as South and Central America is used. This powerful antioxidant has the ability to protect skin from U-V induced lipid per oxidation, oxidative stress and known to stimulated the production of the essential skin barrier.
To strengthen the skin, this masque contains Cilantro Seed Oil as well as Vitamin E to nourish and replenish the skin. Cilantro Seed Oil is sourced from Eastern Europe, rich in petroselinic acid which enrages the stimulation of the skin barrier, induces lipid accumulation and accelerants barrier regeneration after pollution damage.
It’s got a beautiful, spa-like scent and leaves your skin feeling great!
Use it three times a week at night after cleansing. Apply a visible layer to the skin, leave on for 5 minutes and pat off excess with a tissue to leave a thin protective layer on the skin.
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque
I’m sure you can tell exactly what this masque is all about am I right?
A masque designed to energise dull, fatigued skin and provide instant radiance with a healthy appearance.
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque is packed with natural key ingredients that have been used for centuries to keep skin looking beautiful.
Tumeric Extract which is traditionally used as a botanical supplement in Ayurvedic, Chinese and Egyptian traditional medicines, helps to heal or soothe the skin. It’s also a natural cleanser, detoxing the skin from impurities, while having strong antioxidant, anti-septic and sebum balancing properties.
The formula also contains crushed Cranberry seeds which help to gently exfoliate the skin, leaving it feeling renewed, energised and radiant, while getting rid of those dead skin cells that are known to clog up pores.
It’s got a lovely natural smell and feels fantastic on the skin. Apply a visible layer at night on cleansed skin and leave it to dry for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water while massaging the skin in gentle circular motions, allowing the cranberry seeds to gently exfoliate the skin.
Both the Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque and the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque are exclusive to Kiehl’s counters nationwide. Find them in February at R465 each for 75ml
Such great products! I want to take advantage of the results from both of these gems, so I’m alternating between the two every three nights.[signature]
