Trust Kiehl’s to always come up with the most beautiful events with on point settings. The launch event of these new face masks were no different. Pictures? Wokay.

Both these masks serve a different purpose and I wouldn’t be able to choose just one if you ask me to because I feel like my skin needs them both. Lemme get into the reasons why.

  • Turmeric & Cranberry Seed energizing Radiance Masque (rm138)



An instant facial mask that invigorates skin and brightens appearance in minutes.

Recharge skin’s youthful glow with this naturally invigorating, skin-energizing mask.

Kiehl’s introduces Cranberry and Turmeric Energizing Mask, this facial mask instantly brightens dull, fatigued skin and restores skin’s healthy, rosy appearance over time.


Formulated with Cranberry Extract, an antioxidant packed superberry rich in resveratrol and anti-inflammatory Turmeric Extract, this unique mask also contains micronized Cranberry seeds that can be used to gently exfoliate the skin while washing the mask off after use.

Overall Thoughts


To start it off, I kinda like the scent of this mask and oddly, the color too. Everytime I apply this mask onto my face, I’ll feel a slight warming sensation which is said to be normal with this mask. It just means that the mask is working. It’s nothing uncomfortable so dont worry.

I leave this on for about 10 mins each time I use it before rinsing it off with water. The cranberry seeds inside the mask can be used to exfoliate the skin. I find it very gentle as a face scrub but sometimes the seeds can be a little tough to wash off. Maybe taking it off with a wet face towel would be better.


The clarity that it gives my skin after each use is unreal and this picture did not do this mask any justice. I wish you could just feel my skin haha. Something about Kiehl’s masks la.. they’re just magic. It only takes 10 mins of this mask to make my skin feel soft and look extremely bright. 

I think because it is a radiance mask, the brightness it gives is a little different, like it just makes my skin look so glowy and good overall. And with the anti inflammatory properties, I feel that it calms any breakouts that I have too. I’ve never tried any face masks that gives similar results to this and I’m glad I got to try this because I’m a huge fan now.

  • Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Purifying Masque (rm138)


Your nighttime mask to purify and protect skin.

Kiehl’s introduces Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque: this protective facial masque defends and replenishs skin to help reduce the visible effects of pollution.


Formulated with Cilantro and Orange Extract, our treatment masque helps skin feel strengthened against environmental aggressors while helping to prevent impurities from adhering to skin. With continued use, dull, unhealthy looking skin is renewed, radiant and protected.

Overall Thoughts


When I first tried it, the scent threw me off a little but after a while I got used to it as usual :p Not too sure on what this smells like exactly so let’s just leave it at that before I confuse you with my desperate attempt at scent description lol. But scent aside, this mask is amazing people.

This is a tissue off mask that you can use morning and night. I personally only use it at night because it kinda leaves a film and I don’t like that feeling under makeup. If you’re not wearing makeup or have extremely dry skin then maybe you’ll enjoy using it in the morning. But as for a night time mask, it definitely gets the job done for me.

To be honest, sometimes I don’t even tissue it off. I just apply a super thin layer as the last step of my skincare routine and just go to bed. When you don’t wipe it off, it does get a teeny bit tacky but that don’t bother me at all. Next morning, I wake up with the softest and rejuvenated looking skin ever. 

So yeah guys, these two new masques from Kiehl’s have been quite a treat for my skin lately. If you are hesitant or unsure of which to choose, you can always drop by any Kiehl’s stores and ask for samples 🙂

Thank you guys for reading! xx
