When it comes to multi-masking I tend to get a little mask crazy sometimes and use so many at once, but ideally I try and restrict my usage to two masks at once. Which sometimes becomes three.
Much like multi-tasking, multi-masking allows us to gain from the benefits of multiple masks at once, opposed to waiting 24 hours or so in between processes. This makes masking extremely fun and sometimes complex for skincare junkies like ourselves.
One of my favourite multi-masking combos is the radiance, smoothing and hydration inducing combination provided by both the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Energizing Radiance Mask and the Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask, when used together. I try to do this combination at least once a week and often do it in the morning for a fresh and radiant look throughout the day. It is also a GREAT combo to do before any big makeup application as well, to smooth out the texture of the skin and hydrated it before applying a film of product over the face.
Moving forward, let’s learn a little more about the masks…
Here’s what the retailers have to say:
- “Instant Facial” mask brightens and energizes the look of dull, fatigued skin to restore a healthy, rosy appearance,
- Formulated with Cranberry Seeds and Turmeric, this invigorating mask helps soften skin and gently exfoliates it for smoother, brighter and illuminated looking skin.
From the manufacturers:
- Lightweight gel mask formulated with hand-picked Calendula Flower Petals and Aloe Vera bursts into a refreshing surge of cooling hydration,
- Upon application, dry skin is instantly hydrated and smoothed,
- Whith continued use skin is revitalized for a healthy looking complexion.
… so you can see why these two make a fantastic pairing.
I always begin by cleansing my makeup off of my skin using a cleansing oil and then proceed with and second cleanse, before applying my toner pre-masks; and then we’re off…
Using a mask brush I apply a thin layer of the Turmeric & Cranberry Energizing Radiance Mask all over my face while being sure to avoid the eye area. Once that is done I allow it to dry for about 10 minutes before wetting my hands and beginning to massage the product on my face; this way the Cranberry Seeds within the mask are able to exfoliate as designed to. Then, wash the remainder of the mask off.
Right after I’ve pat dry my skin I take my mask brush and my Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask (which I keep in the fridge by the way) and apply a thin, even layer all over the face while being sure to avoid the eye area. After about 5 minutes I wash it off, and then proceed with my nightly routine.
- Healthy/ fresh glow,
- Greater radiance,
- Soft and smooth skin,
- Hydrated skin.
These are benefits that ANYONE can enjoy, regardless of skin type. Although I would be weary if I were a more sensitive skin type when using the Turmeric & Cranberry Energizing Radiance Mask. The reason I say this is because Turmeric is a powerful ingredient and could create a small discomfort if your skin is already leaning towards the more sensitive side.
Essentially these are two of my favourite masks because of the results they produce, especially when used together. This is why I chose the multi-masking combo of the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Energizing Radiance Mask and the Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask as my Day 3 choices for The 7 Day Mask Challenges.
If you’re in the market for a bright complexion, softer skin and even textures you now know where to look.
