Overnight masks are some of my favourite to use, for the reason that they not only simplify a pm routine into fewer steps, but they also take heavy duty action on the skin. Previously I spoke about the Kiehl’s Ulltra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque as well as the Biotherm Life Plankton Mask. Both of these masks are overnight hydrating masks and work to replenish the skin in that nature.
Hydrating masks aren’t the only kind of overnight products though.
From the retailers:
- Helps defend and replenish with hydration, to reduce the visible signs of pollution such as dull, unhealthy looking skin,
- Formulated with Cilantro and Orange Extracts, our masque protects skin against environmental aggressors while helping to defend pollutants from adhering to skin,
- With continued use skin looks renewed, radiant and protected.
Evidently this overnight mask is much different from the two that I’ve gone ahead and previously mentioned. That being said, having diversity among skincare products that we interchange between is never a bad thing.
Not only is the mask itself different, but its application is slightly unique as well; it gets layered within a pm routine opposed to acting as a standalone treatment.
Essentially the process begins with cleansing and toning as per usual, and then always make sure to follow with your eye cream. Once that’s absorbed the mask gets applied by first having a small amount warmed up between the fingers and then massaged onto then face evenly. Wait for it to dry, finish with serum, oil and moisturizer.
Yes it’s a lengthy process, but heck does it ever get the job done.
I love how dewy and purified my skin looks the next day. It literally feels like a fresh awakening when you look in the mirror and get caught up in the warmth of your complexion, not even kidding.
I definitely recommend this mask for ALL SKIN TYPES, especially those who suffer from minor breakouts and impurities on the face. I ESPECIALLY recommend it if you’re like me and you live in a city or heavily polluted area where the defence is almost mandatory.
Well that’s a wrap for Day 6 of The 7 Day Mask Challenge Week Two with the Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Pollutant Defence Masque. Tomorrow I’ll be back with my final mask post of the two weeks, and then I’ll be back with one final recap of my overall comparison between a week of Sheet Masks vs. a week of Professional Masks.
Keep the defence,
