It’s officially Springtime people! Well, in this part of the world at least. The Easter Holiday’s are over and and it’s time to freshen up my home and my skin.
Kiehl’s have launched two new masques to the range and they both look super. A few times a week I’m using the Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque. Whilst this is a purifying mask it’s different from the usual clay types. It brightens the skin leaving it soft and fresh looking. This should be used at night as the last step of your routine. I apply a generous amount to my face and leave on for 15 minutes. To finish I wipe off the excess and then leave it on overnight.
The smell is fresh and minty (don’t expect orange or sweet because it’s not) which seems strange for a nighttime product. I usually prefer something that comforting at night but if this works then I’m on board! The slight menthol fragrance helps stimulate blood flow overnight. This results in bright and fresh skin by morning – totally worth it!
I recommend a double cleanse to thoroughly remove the product. This leads me to Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser. I’m avoid harsh or heavy cleansers so I had some trepidation using this in case. I’m nervous anything with clay might leave my skin stripped. It totally didn’t! Whilst my skin tends to be dry my pores can also become clogged. To negate this I wanted to incorporate a cleanser that detoxifies my skin without stripping the natural oils. This cleanser is perfectly gentle yet leaves my skin super clean. Detoxifying and foaming are usually a bad combination for a cleanser. But in this case Sunday Riley has it down!
