Upon using it, we noticed that it instantly cools and refreshes the skin after touching it. It doesn’t dry out even 5 minutes after application, allowing the freshness to last for a while.
We have tried it out on different skin types in order to share the experience and results with you. For dry skin, it turned out that the Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Masque effectively hydrates and reduces irritation. However, it cannot be considered to be a treatment for your skin and you will need a moisturizing cream suitable for dry skin in order to maintain its hydration level.
If you have normal skin, you will feel the hydration and freshness for an extended time after use. It will also make your skin appear brighter on the long run, but don’t expect outstanding results.
Moreover, if you have combination skin, this mask will leave it soft and moisturized for it is considered a good remedy for dry areas on the face. It will also add freshness to your T-zone. Whereas if you have oily skin, you will notice the softening effect of this mask, but it will not limit oil secretion.
Wash your skin well, apply a visible layer to clean skin avoiding the eye area, and leave on for 5 minutes. Next, rinse your face with warm water and massage it in a circular motion. Pat dry your skin softly. We recommend using it 3 times a week.
