First Impressions: Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask

I got a foil packet sample of this mask when I ordered something else from the Kiehl’s website recently and was surprised to find that there are just not that many reviews! Face masks are one of my favorite pampering self-care activities, but I’m not in it for the “skintertainment” – I want my masks to actually do what they say (or at least do something). The Kiehl’s website says their Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask “instantly brightens dull, fatigued skin and restores skin’s healthy, rosy appearance over time”. Well, I’ll only get 1-2 uses from this little packet, but we do already know that cranberries are an anti-oxidant and turmeric is an anti-inflammatory. My first issue right off the bat is that Kiehl’s does not list the ingredients on its own website, but let’s see how it performs.

First, the basics: I have dehydrated combination skin, which means I overproduce oil if I get too dry, and in general my cheeks are pretty dry while my “T-zone” (forehead, nose, and chin) are a little more oily.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Kaolin, Sorbitol, Bentonite, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Ci 77891 / Titanium Dioxide, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed, Pentylene Glycol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil / Jojoba Seed Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Polysorbate 60, Polyacrylamide, Ci 77492 / Iron Oxides, Glycerin, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Curcuma Longa Extract / Turmeric Root Extract, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Laureth-7, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita Extract / Peppermint Leaf Extract, Menthol, Epilobium Angustifolium Extract – Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Aminomethyl Propanol, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil. (The ingredients list has been pulled from the Birchbox website as Kiehl’s does not list product ingredients on their own website).

Product Info:

*Please note, while the ingredients in this mask do not list “fragrance” as a separate added ingredient, it does contain menthol, eucalyptus, and other fragrant ingredients that are also known irritants. For this reason, I marked it as having added fragrance.
