Hope you’re all well! ^-^
Uni has me stressed out and the cherry to top this off is that my skin is looking awful. I have been using the Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask a lot, to be honest, I’ve gone through three tubs of that stuff – I love it! So I wanted to try something new and similar.
So I opted for the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque, I’ve heard no reviews about this and no one has recommended it to me, I walked into the shop and picked it out from random amongst the lot.
So it’s 125ml tub of product for £23.50. Decent. The packaging its self is nothing fancy, just a plain plastic tub with a screw on lid.
The product is said to:
- Cleanse your skin of debris
- Visibly minimised pores
- Give a brighter looking complexion
- Clear blackheads
- Gently draws out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores.
- Soothe the skin
The product contains:
- Mineral-rich Amazonian White Clay
- Aloe Vera
How to Apply:
- Apply a thin layer to damp, clean skin, avoiding the immediate eye area and allow to dry (approximately ten minutes)
- When dry, gently remove using a warm, wet towel and gently pat dry
This is what it looks like on the inside:
I applied this after a long day of wearing make up for more than 12 hours. I was tired and I wanted a quick “pick me up” for my skin.
I applied this mask using my fingers. The product itself was smooth and I did notice there was no cooling sensation or tingle on my skin like the one from Body Shop. I left it on my skin until it completely dried which didn’t take long, I was able to wash it off within 15 minutes. So it was definitely great to use in the morning before I head out.
When I was looking in the mirror with the mask on, I could see my pores and the mask really stuck to the skin. I could smile and talk with this mask on, it was 100000% more comfortable to use in comparison to my Body shop mask.
After I washed it off, I was supposed to use a hot towel to wipe it, but I didn’t, I used warm-hot water and my hands – my skin looked so much brighter and my skin looked so smooth especially on my nose where I have large pores and some swollen spots on my jaw felt not so bumpy anymore.
For 10 minutes, this mask did wonders! Whereas I left my body shop mask on for 45 minutes.
So overall, I rate this mask a 3.5/5 –
What I don’t like is that I can’t apply it on dry skin and I have to wipe it off with a towel. ew no. my towel will get dirty.
Anyway, I hoped you enjoyed this review!
Lot’s of love,
