Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque Review

SKIN CARE REVIEWS

01.22.19 AD DISCLOSURE

If you’re looking for a face mask that does not dry, sensitize or irritate the skin, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydrating Masque. This jelly texture mask is a nice update to the classic clay mask, which can be drying and sensitizing as well as purifying. This mask will help to elevate any signs of irritation including dryness, peeling, redness and even inflammatory acne. The two key ingredients in this formula include calendula and aloe vera gel, which helps to give this product its beneficial properties as well as it’s unique gel texture. Calendula extract and calendula petals are known for their skin soothing properties as well as their benefit to oily skin types in particular. Aloe vera on the other hand can be beneficial for almost all skin types, as it can help to hydrate and soothe the skin. In order to get the most out of this product, we recommend you apply this mask for 5 minutes and then rinse with warm water and take the opportunity to perform a gentle face massage.
