Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque Review

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque 142g

After my smashing success with the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Cleanser I’ve been dying to try the mask from the same range. This contains the same Amazonian White Clay that made the cleanser so effective at moping up dirt and oil.

The mask doesn’t smell as strong as the cleanser but has a slight scent of chalk. It goes on like a dream, the consistency is thin enough to spread but thick enough that it isn’t runny. It turns a slightly lighter colour while it dries in the the recommended time of ten minutes. You can start to feel it working almost as soon as you put it on your face. It starts sucking up the oil and will feel tingly until you remove it. The mask makes your skin feel tight while it’s drying but it’s not uncomfortable.

This really leaves your skin super clean and fresh and while it doesn’t make my huge pores disappear completely, it definitely makes them appear smaller and less noticable. If your skin is dry then do not use this mask. Even if you have combination skin I wouldn’t recommend this unless you were just going to use it on your t-zone. Yes it’s that super-absorbent. Even with my oil prone complexion I would only use this once a week or possibly twice in the summer months.

Getting this off is also super easy peasy – I used a wet face cloth and I didn’t have to scrub it off like other masks I’ve used. I found this also works really well as a spot treatment. Just apply a little bit with a cotton bud to the offending blemish and leave it overnight to work it’s magic.

I’ve made an executive COPD decision that I’m in love with Kiehl’s skincare again and I’m going to start working my way through their other products. This range also contains a toner and pore minimising lotion too so I may check those out next. This is available at John Lewis or the Kiehl’s website for £21.50.

Happy Earth Day everyone!

    Quite clearly this would make my face fall off, but sounds perfect for someone who doesn’t have incredibly dry skin that needs to regularly slathered in oil to keep it perky!

  3. Miss A says:

    Oooh I’m so going to buy this. Along with some other products from Kiehls.

    This could be my skin saviour! This could help me get rid of all the oil/grease!

    I quite like this brand, there is a shop not very far from where I live and I quite like it, there are always products I’d love to try and this one could be quite nice to try ;-)

  5. I managed to obtain a sachet at the store a while ago., but failed to see the hype what this product has been generating. But I agree that cleaning it off was a breeze.

    @Anju – Thanks dear, can you get Kiehl’s in India? I highly recommend it. x
    @Debbie – This would probably irritate your skin to the max and leave it drier than the Mojave so stay well away!
    @Miss A – Go forth and buy Kiehl’s! :D
    @Pinkty – Same to you young lady go forth and buy Kiehl’s :D:D
    @AtelierBeauty – Not everything works for everybody so it’s great that we have so much choice yes?

    Ladies as always it’s been a pleasure reading your comments xoxo
