Monday Masking: Clearing Cranberry Turmeric Concoction

Today’s mask is the Kiehls Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Face Mask. I have had a long love affair with this mask. It is one of the few masks that reveal clearer skin upon washing it off. This mask smells of turmeric and light citrus and leaves a cooling sensation on the skin upon application. The mask is thick but spreadable and a thin layer is all you really need with this consistency.

This face mask doesn’t dry fully, it tightens slightly and almost shrinks causing the mask to crack; this whole process usually takes about 10-15 mins depending on the thickness of the applied layer. After washing this mask off I noticed an immediate difference in my skin, it was brighter, more even in tone, felt lighter and extremely hydrated. With continued use, this mask definitely helped to clear away some problem areas, and it did so with the help of turmeric and cranberry seed.

Turmeric Extract

Part of the ginger family, Turmeric has been traditionally used in Indian Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for hundreds of years. In India, turmeric is rubbed into the skin to help provide a healthy glow for special occasions. The turmeric root […] has been also applied in different forms on the skin to help healing or soothe a series of conditions, such as cuts, burns, rashes, itching, and eczema.
This powerful ingredient has become increasingly popular in the beauty world and is known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and has been historically used to treat skin imperfections and improve the brightness of skin. – Kiehls


Leveraging two components of the cranberry – the oil and crushed seed – this berry is a very rich source of antioxidants and is known to be a natural source of resveratrol. The seed oil contains high levels of fatty acids and antioxidants, important for skin health. The crushed cranberry seeds within our formula help to exfoliate leaving skin feeling renewed and looking energized and radiant. – Kiehls


It’s easy to expect big results when using a mask and it’s easy to become disappointed when we don’t see those results. This mask helps to reveal small improvements within the skin that encourage and excite you to keep coming back for more.

I highly recommend you try this mask, however, because it is on the more expensive side, retailing for $50 CDN, feel free to only apply it to the areas you feel are in need. No need to use up your products on skin that’s not in need.

Hoping you discover a mask that works well for you,
