Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my adult pimples A LOT!!! I've been having these crazy adult pimples lately, tried everything Kiehl's has to offer for acne/pimples/blemishes but this one is that only one that really helped me. I hope you would try this if you are suffering from any acne or you may use this like for prophylaxis to prevent future break outs. Sometimes I use this every night for a week, it just really depends on my mood and my breakout. And it keeps my face really hydrated and soft. PS, I don't really follow the instruction like remove with a tissue paper after 5 mins., I just use a thin layer and leave it on over night. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally surprised me! I impulsively decided to buy this mask once day to splurge on something. I thought it was pretty expensive at first but after around 7 uses the jar is still about 98% full, so I know it'll last me a long time! When I wake up my skin looks much more even and smooth, and it's super soft and moisturized feeling! One salesgirl told me she uses this mask on the nights she has an extra glass of wine, and now I totally understand why. I also pick at my skin often and have scabs because of it, and when I use this mask it minimizes how bad they look, way better than antibiotic ointment and a bandaid! Definitely worth the price, and I'll definitely buy another jar when I run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better put a towel on your pillow This mask is very interesting. I use it no more than twice a week, any more than that and my face gets dry. It goes on like a gel and the directions say that after it sets to use a tissue to wipe off the top layer, leaving the oily residue behind. I tried doing that but it was more effort than it was worth so i just sleep with it on my face as it is. But for sure put a towel to cover my pillow because even though it sets it is still very sticky. It has a slight smell but nothing too crazy. When you wake up in the morning and wash it off your skin looks super plump, all the fine lines are filled in. I also notice that it reduces any breakouts I may have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It From The First Those who are saying its sticky once they tissue it off, how the heck much did you use. Also personally , I think this may be better for older skin. I can tell you how it gets great reviews.... 1) it smells really good, 2) it goes on easy and 3) it works great. Even after my very first time, my skin felt soft the next morning and was very smooth. I used a good amount, let it dry then tissued off as it says to do. Then I massaged the rest into my skin so I had no slimy feel at all. I don't think i would sleep with the entire masque on but you probably could as one reviewer did. I love this masque.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny Initially, I was turned off by the name "cilantro and orange." I dislike the scent of cilantro. However, after receiving a sample, I quickly fell in love. To me, this mask smells like a campfire. I do not smell cilantro at all. I use this mask 2-3 times a week. This is the last product to go on my face at night. It has a slight tingling sensation, which tells me it's working! I have very large and visible pores on my nose. After just two uses my pores were clear. I retuned to the store to buy a full sized container and am totally hooked! This product is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite purifying mask of all time! Please never discontinue! I could rave about this product for days. A little goes a long way and to be honest, I don't tissue the product off as instructed. Rather, I am sure to wash my pillowcases. In terms of the smell, I think it smells more charcoal/musky than cilantro or orange. The smell doesn't bother me at all. This product has significantly cleared my stubborn blackheads and leaves me with fresh, glowing skin. I plan to buy the full size eventually. The only con is the price. However, this mask will last you a longgg time! Worth the investment! Also, I think it helps with fine lines! Win all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could This Be My Favorite Kiehl's Product? I've been using this mask for a few months after it was recommended to me at my local Kiehl's store. As somebody with oily skin and acne, I never expected to love a gel mask so much. This mask promises to protect skin against pollutants and impurities and make the skin more radiant - but for me, it has done so much more than that. I use this mask as an overnight mask 2-3 times a week. When I wash it off in the morning, I am always amazed by how moisturized yet oil-free and cleansed my skin feels - to the point that I sometimes only wash my face with water the morning after using the mask. It has improved the overall texture of my skin and I think it has helped control my breakouts and minimize my blackheads. It also seems to last a very long time - totally worth every dollar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new favorite I have been experiencing some adult onset acne (what a joy!) and some frustrating other skincare issues as I am now "in my 30's". I don't know exactly what it is about this mask, but it seriously calms down my skin overnight. I am currently having a breakout issue, and I woke up this morning and my blemishes are smaller, less angry, and my skin is clearly on the road to recovery. This has quickly become a critical step in my skincare routine. Thank you Kiehl's for making yet another product that has turned my skin around.
