Lately I have become a fan of all those night-time beauty products which help your skin stay happy and healthy, working their charm while you sleep. Your nighttime regimen – from the creams and lotions to pills and potions – is meant to ensure that you wake up with bright and nourished skin. With an ultra-busy life, some of us may lack time for the CTM routine on a daily basis. I know it is highly beneficial and strongly recommended by all experts, but hey, sometimes there’s just not enough time; at least not with me, a mom to a one year old baby, juggling a wide range of priorities.
Hence, the search for that singular beauty elixir, which I can use to improve my skin as I catch up on some beauty sleep, is always on. The main concern is that my skin gets depleted of its moisture overnight, especially during the harsh winter months – this is very detrimental to its general quality. It is to prevent this that I was looking for a good nighttime skin product when I came across Keihl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque. I picked it up quickly for I have used a few Kiehl’s products in past and had a great experience with them.
This gem of a masque is suitable for all skin types and is free of colorants, parabens, silicones and any fragrance as well. You are supposed apply a thick layer and leave it on for 10 minutes right before you sleep. Wipe of the excess, don’t wash it completely and simply go to bed. It is not too heavy and is almost transparent when applied to the skin. The best part is that the clear gel provides a dose of strong hydration on application. And in the morning, you are sure to wake up to beautiful, well-moisturized, supple skin.
My take on the product is that it delivers what it promises, and yes, you do open your eyes to glowing, nourished skin. I have been using it for almost two months now, and must say that it has worked wonders on my skin without me having to put in too much effort. I find it a bit sticky on the face when sleeping, but maybe that is simply because I am more of a serum-person when it comes to night time beauty products.
