Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always! 🙂
Today’s post features a new facial mask from Kiehl’s.
Kiehl’s added 2 new masques to their skincare line– they’ve officially launched and are available for purchase. The one I’ve been testing out is the Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque. According to Kiehl’s, the main benefit of this mask is to brighten and energize the look of tired and dull skin, and it’s supposed to restore your skin to have that flushed look– “healthy, rosy, appearance.” My skin definitely looks tired every morning; I could sleep for 8 hours and I’ll wake up looking like I didn’t get any sleep at all. I have dark under eye circles and sometimes, I even scare myself when I wake up and look into the mirror. Thankfully, skin care and make-up comes to the rescue. This masque is meant to be used during the day after you’ve washed your face, used your toner, etc (do your normal skin routine and then use this masque). I ended up doing a little research online about the 2 main ingredients (turmeric and cranberry seeds) in the masques. Here’s what you need to know:
Turmeric, part of the ginger family, is actually a spice for those of you who don’t know, I know this because I LOVE to make yellow curry and white rice.. YUM! Aside from using this spice in the kitchen, it actually has many benefits for your hair and skin. It’s been found that turmeric can prevent aging. It’s a great exfoliant when mixed with water and/or milk. Turmeric is also an anti-bacterial agent, so it can definitely help heal cuts or burns. It can also help lighten any pigmentation/discoloration on your skin and will improve your skin’s elasticity.
Cranberry is of course one of many fruits and it’s actually very good for you!! It’s high in antioxidants like pomegranates! Anything that is high in antioxidants can actually help prevent you from getting some diseases. Cranberry seeds & oil absorb into your skin and hydrates your skin giving you that supple feeling and fresh look. The cranberry seeds in this masque will make for a great exfoliation while providing other great benefits to your skin.
I apply a thin layer of this masque to my dry skin and I leave it to sit and dry for about 10 minutes. The packaging suggests to leave it on for 5-10 minutes, but you all know that I like to do the most. After my 10 minutes are up, I go to the sink and rinse it off. When I first applied the masque onto my face, I felt a tingling sensation, and definitely felt the mask get tighter on my skin. I rub in a circular motion and the cranberry seeds in this masque make a really great exfoliant. Rinse with warm water, pat dry and follow with a moisturizer or serum/oil. I don’t see why this masque wouldn’t work for everyone and I highly recommend that if you have oily skin, give this masque a try. This stuff will definitely make anyone’s skin GLOW!
I am always asked about my skincare routine and always complimented on the appearance of my skin with and without make-up. Why not share secrets? What are you impressed with and can’t live without? Please do share with us!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I hope you all learned a thing or two, and if you already knew all this… give yourself a pat on the back 🙂 As always, thank you so much for tuning in and reading– love you all. xoxoxo
