Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque - review

My Take on the Product: Upon application, the mask provides a cooling sensation that I really like. The product’s texture was light and easy to put on like any other clay mask. After applying it all over my face, I waited up to 10 minutes for the mask to fully dry up and then I wiped it off with warm water. After complete removal, my skin immediately feels that it is a little bit smoother and pores look visibly smaller. You can feel that your skin is tightened and feels really clean.

👍 Pros: Over a period of time, it has reduced the size of my pores and also reduced blackheads and whiteheads.
👎 Cons: It can be drying so this product is not for those with dry skin.

Definitely a must-have for people with oily, sensitive acne-prone skin.
