Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Rehydrating Mask with 10.5% Squalane is a new intensively hydrating face mask for dry skin that locks in moisture overnight and strengthens skin’s moisture barrier to treat dryness, tightness and flaky skin.
Inspired by the tried-and-true Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, this new overnight mask provides luxurious hydration, leaving skin soft, supple and moisturized. It was originally formulated for Mount Everest climbers!!
• 10.5% SQUALANE: Deeply hydrating, Squalane helps strengthen and replenish skin’s moisture barrier.
• GLACIAL GLYCOPROTEIN: Originally sourced from Antarctic sea glaciers, it helps to deeply hydrate and maintain skin’s moisture balance. Sustainably sourced in an environmentally friendly manner.
HOW TO USE
The new Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Rehydrating Mask has 3 main uses
• Use it 3 times weekly overnight as a replacement to your night cream to keep skin hydrated while you sleep
• Use it as cleansing balm to remove makeup and impurities
• Or, use it as a 15-minute intense hydration mask on dry areas needing extra nourishment
Texture-wise, this fragrance-free mask has a thick balm-like texture that quickly melts in when you gently massage onto skin. The texture transforms from balm-to-oil as you apply it on your face, glides on smoothly and feels nourishing without any stickiness.
Now that we are right in the middle of winter, this overnight mask is like a dry-skin dream! I just love how hydrating it is (without a heavy feel) and leaves my skin soft and supple with a dewy glow. I use it at night as the last step in my skincare routine after cleansing, toning and applying a serum.
I have been using it as suggested at night for 3x per week and it helps keep my dry skin flake-free, nourished and happy…it’s the perfect pick-me-up for parched skin! Those with combination to oily skin might find the formula a bit too rich but it’s still a great option for cold winter months when your skin needs an extra dose of nourishment.
Another thing I have to tell you is that I love using this hydrating mask, especially after applying my retinol treatment at night because it really helps to prevent the retinol-induced dryness/flakiness and irritation. This is one of the few products that have worked well for me to avoid the sahara-desert-dry-skin-situation and dry patches I sometimes have to deal with after using retinol.
