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!
