A Facial in a Jar: Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque

One of my current skin care favs to use is Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque.

Its claim:

Our “instant facial” brightens and energises the look of dull, fatigued skin to restore a healthy, rosy appearance. Formulated with Cranberry and Turmeric this invigorating formulation helps to visibly even the look of skin tone, while crushed Cranberry Seeds gently exfoliate for smoother, brighter, illuminated looking skin.

Does it live up to its claim? Yes, yes it does! And more!

Turmeric has been used for centuries as a spice and beauty aid because of its amazing benefits such as radiant skin, and anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties.

If you’ve ever used turmeric root or powder while cooking, you’ll know it leaves an orangey stain on whatever it touches, that takes forever to remove.

Because of this I’ve never been inclined to put it on my face, despite it’s promise of younger-looking, clearer and brighter skin.

I’ve never found any skin care products with turmeric in it, until I came across Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque. I figured the brand wouldn’t create a product that would leave me looking like I’ve had a tanning spray gone wrong. So I decided to try it.

The creamy mask is easy to apply. It’s speckled with crushed cranberry seeds and has a mildly tangy scent that quickly disappears as the mask sets.

It says to leave it on for about 10 minutes, but I usually keep it on my face for about half an hour or so. (I tend to do that with cream-based masks).

For me, the best part are the cranberry seeds. They’re non-abrasive yet work really well as an exfoliant. Before rinsing, I’ll massage the mask on my face for about 10 seconds, to activate the cranberry seeds.

(Side note: I prefer removing my masks while showering, so I don’t make a mess at the sink.)

The end result is always instantly noticeable: baby soft, smoother skin that looks brighter and clearer.

This is my S.O.S remedy (pun intended) for when I’ve had late nights, lack of sleep or my skin looks particularly dull.

I really love this face mask (can you tell?) and can’t rave on about it enough to everyone!

Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque is £29.00 for 100ml. I got mine here.
