4 Kiehl’s masks compared – which one is right for you?

Author: Jenny Wu
Hi there!

  • Shireen L. Platt

    Hmm, doesn’t sound like any of these are worth the purchase for me. Thank you for the honest review, Jenny!

    • Jenny

      Yeah, unless you have combo skin with a pesky nose situation (aka me), none of their other masks were mind blowing. I’m especially surprised at the great reviews for the cranberry & turmeric mask, I don’t get its appeal at all!

  • Linda Libra Loca

    I don´t think I have tried any of the masks. To be fair, I haven´t tried much Kiehl´s in general (strange, now that I think of it). I will put the rare earth mask on my list.

    Enjoy your trip!

    The Cilantro Orange mask sounds like a great one for me. You will be surprised but I haven’t tried any products from Kiehls, apart from a sample sized jar of one of their creams. I love the comparison of these four masks! Thank you very much :)

    The only one of these I’ve tried is the Rare Earth mask and it’s okay but I can’t say it blew me away. The Cilantro Orange mask has piqued my interest since I’m obsessed with all things anti-pollution lately. As much I like wash off masks, I’m just more devoted to sheet masks once the weather cools down and I have a rather massive stash I’m in the process of working down. Safe travels and enjoy your time in Italy Jenny!

    I haven’t tried Khiel’s masks and while the two out of four sound very promising, I’m not sure they are very suitable for my skin type. I like wash-off masks that have antioxidant + pampering + hydrating properties, and that’s a hard mix haha. Have fun in Italy and eat lots of eggplant parmesan!

    Thank you so much for this very frank round-up of these masks. I have wanted the cilantro one and the turmeric one since they released them but for some reason this isn’t the brand I rush to buy. I probably will get the cilantro one for some overnight pampering after reading this but I can happily say it doesn’t sound like I’m missing out on anything with the rest xxx

    Such a lovely and detailed review, as always! I haven’t used any of these before, but heard that they should come out with an Avocado mask for dry skin which sounds nice. Enjoy your time in Italy Jenny! xx

    I haven’t tried any kiehl’s products yet but it’s a brand that has appealed to me for a while, especially their midnight recovery oil. All 4 of these face masks sound so awesome, especially the brightening face mask.

    Haven’t tried any mask from this brand but heard much about it… I don’t think I would go for any of these masks but would love to try their serum… thanks for detailed review…❤️


    • Jenny

      Their midnight recovery concentrate is fantastic as well!

    Ah great post. I do not like sheet masks. I have asthma and allergies and I have too many problems breathing when I wear them and I do not like how they feel. Just not for me. I like traditional masks so this is a great round to learn about. And yes I do the same thing a clay mask for jus the nose.

    aw, I was hoping your feelings about the calendula mask would change! despite having dry skin, the rare earth mask is one of my favorites for when my skin is feeling a little congested or for pesky period pimples – sometimes I overdo it on the moisturizers/serums so my skin feels a little clogged up/tender in mostly around my nose and cheeks ???? it’s like a good no-frills kinda clay mask that basically lasts almost forever.

    I’m with you on the turmeric and cranberry mask! it gave me a slight stinging sensation and while it wasn’t painful, it was bothersome enough. plus it was so hard to take off! my sister liked it a lot though, so I passed it off to her.

    also I’m not in the beauty blogging space as much anymore, but I always enjoy coming back to lurk on your blog/using it as a resource in general bc your skincare recs work well on me too! and have fun in italy!!
