Turmeric is a spice which seems to be everywhere in the media at the moment. When ingested it is said to have powerful medicinal benefits so it's no surprise that cosmetic companies have started to incorporate it into skin care.
Tumeric is especially awesome for an oily/combination skin. It helps to regulate sebum production whist being anti bacterial and antiseptic, also great for a problematic skin as it is anti-inflammatory. The warming spice stimulates the circulation helping to speed up cell renewal. Doesn't this all sound fabulous?
Kiehls have jumped on-board with the Tumeric trend and added it to their latest mask along with Cranberry seed to exfoliate.
It's a really thick, rich creamy mask infused with fine Cranberry seeds which give it a slightly gritty, abrasive texture.
Applies in a thick gloopy texture and sets to a dry, matte finish. After a few minutes it begins to feel warm on the skin, not tingling, but just a very subtle warmth. If your skin is sensitive or very dry then this may be a little too stimulating but if your skin is "normal", combination or oliy then it's a winner.
Leave for 5-10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Skin feels ridiculously soft and glowing. I had a few blemishes which were a little red where I had over picked, they felt soothed and the redness had been reduced from them. It didn't cause any further breakouts and I can still tell that I have used a treatment on my skin a few days after use.
A lovely mask to use on a rubbish skin day or when your skin just needs a massive kick up the arse.
