Kiehl's Algae Masque l Review (Great for Dry skin!)


Salam/Hey beauties, it's been so long since i last blogged! I am currently on holiday in Algeria and the Internet is too great and also I've been out quite alot and just really busy.
But today i had to come and tell you about this amazing mask i have been using. I brought it a few months ago - May i think and i used it once a week however didn't like it and saw no difference. I have extremely dry skin even now when I'm in a very hot country its still combination to dry.

However i have been using it 2-3 times a week recently and have noticed that it does do alot for my skin.
Before i was applying it with a makeup brush (i find it more hygienic) however i found with this mask you need to rub it into your skin for any results. I tend to leave it on for 10-20mins as i find the longer i leave it on the better results.

My new routine consists of me washing my face with a tea tree wash from thebodyshop then i leave on my Arbonne deep cleanse clay mask which dries out my skin and this Kiehl's algae masque really helps with putting moisture back in. It's very thick but smooth and is a light caramel shade which once you massage into your skin turns white.


This is the description from the website:

ALGAE MASQUE

  • Formulated with moisturizing humectants
  • Nutrient-rich Algae nurtures and balances the skin
  • Leaves skin smooth and soft
  • Contains Green Tea, Chamomile, and Calendula to soothe the skin

As the origin's one didn't work for me i am actually surprised this did and has actually saved my skin from looking all flaky. I can't remember the price but it is around the £20 price mark. You only need a tiny bit and it goes along way so even though it's a pretty small tub and quite pricey i would say it's worth the money because it lasts long. 

If you have any more questions do let me know and also if you are currently using something for dry skin and think it's an amazing product let me know!
