Review & Giveaway: Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque
This amazing Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque helps to soothe, hydrate, and reduce signs of distress. The lightweight natural face masque, formulated with hand-picked Calendula flower petals and Aloe Vera, bursts into a refreshing surge of cooling gel hydration upon application to instantly achieve hydrated and soothed skin. I love trying out new masques, and this has become a bit of a favourite. The first time I used this, I used it on its own and it was both soothing and refreshing. I like the light gel texture and wonderful scent. On its own it’s a really light masque but my skin was moisturised and looked and felt rested. Combined with the rare earth masque (on t zone & chin) it’s the perfect combination.
Whilst the rare earth calms the oiliness, the calendula moisturises and revives. It’s seriously been a great addition to my collection.
The first step in any routine is to always cleanse your skin. Now your skin is clean, Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque should be applied as a visible layer and left for 5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Follow this by massaging your skin gently with a circular motion before patting dry with a soft towel. I love the way this face mask smells so much, I would apply it for this reason alone! Whereas I previously used to apply a pore shrinking face mask to my entire face, this mask was the hydrating answer to my dried out skin.
It has a lightweight gel texture and the flecks of calendula make it look a little like a delicious jam, only this time it is food for my skin. I wish I’d used this product a long time ago! I love the calendula toner, and use it religiously. This mask will be added to my beauty regime and I am grateful that I can rely on Kiehls to create such authentic and effective products to pamper and nourish my skin.
This mask is absolutely wonderful for normal-dry skin. It hydrates amazingly well, it left my skin feeling soft and hydrated even after the first use.
On top of the moisturizing benefit. This mask has a very pleasing cooling effect on the skin that leaves skin feeling refreshed and comfortable. I found it most effective when applied and left on for 15 minutes. Significantly longer than I would leave a clay mask on for. I definitely recommend this. This made my skin feel wonderful. I didn’t even refrigerate it before use as it has such a cool feel to it anyway. I could not believe the effect it had on my skin in only three minutes, making it feel so soft and hydrated.
Overall it’s an excellent skincare product that I would totally recommend. You can buy Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque here and If you fancy winning one for yourself, just enter via the rafflecopter below. Good luck!
