Kiehl's Calendula and Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque Review

I've always been a bit sceptical when it comes to hydrating masks. As an oily skinned gal, I've often found they just clog my pores and are often so thick and heavy that my complexion just goes bonkers. I'm usually die-hard for Peter Thomas Roth's crazy-powerful Pumpkin Mask, or a good ol' clay formula. That being said, after a recent dawdle-too-long in glorious Kiehl's, I was sucked in by this little beauty, and I am so not sorry.

The Kiehl's Calendula and Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque is, essentially, the cosy blanket, endless chocolate and Friends marathon for your face. It's got a beautiful, lightweight gel texture, and doesn't feel even slightly tight or drying when applied. It is very cooling and soothing on the skin, without being thick or stifling - perfect if you're feeling a bit weatherbeaten. I used this for the first time after a particularly long, windy jaunt in the Lake District, and it was one of those glorious little-pleasures-in-life moments. It is one of the few products labelled as "for all skin types" that probably would suit all skin types.

Oh, and as a bonus, it smells divine.

It removes easily, and definitely leaves the skin feeling soothed and hydrated - importantly without feeling in the least bit overloaded. Don't expect the resurfacing magic of a majorly intense treatment mask here, but do expect a juicy, moisturised, soothed complexion. If you have dehydrated skin, even of the oilier persuasion, I urge you to pick up a sample of this little love.

Have you tried this out?
