Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque ($32) is one of two new facial masks that were recently introduced to Kiehl’s permanent collection.
The Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque apparently brightens and invigorates skin in minutes! You know how I constantly, broken recorder you with my endless quest to cure my dull, tired skin right? That translates as me being extra excited to try out Kiehl’s new mask because they sold me on that “instantly brightens dull, fatigued skin and restores skin’s healthy, rosy appearance over time” super easily.
Who doesn’t want a quick fix to their complexion woe?
This little mask is formulated with cranberry extract as well as cranberry seeds to gently exfoliate skin but the start ingredient is Turmeric Extract. Everyone and their mother is shouting from the rooftops about turmeric being not only a taste addition to Tandoori Chicken but also a fabulous addition to your facial care. Apparently it’s a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredient with color balance properties. That had me question why Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque would be a good pick for me since it apparently might be better suited for acne prone skin. But hey, they keep telling me this is all about getting your glow because and it’s loaded with a good deal of antioxidants and vitamins to replenish skin.
Actually, the brightening effect you might get is simply due to the cranberry seeds which will slough away dead skin cells. Outside of that, I’m not really seeing why everyone is so hung up on Turmeric.
