Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque Review

Yay!!! as promised I am back with a review on another sleeping mask: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque.

I have used Kiehl’s products before. Some have worked wonders , some have been disappointing (including the Ultra Facial moisturizing cream). So when I purchased this mask, I had neutral expectation as in I hoped that it is HYDRATING as the name suggests but I did not expect it to be a mask that will do significantly more than that.

It is a clear gel-like , light-weight consistency mask with no fragrance.

The ingredients list has a lot of good stuff like :Ophiopogon Japonicuthis, which is a plant that survives drought conditions by producing humectants. Humectants, by defintion are substances that attract and hold water molecules from its surrounding environment. Also, they help increase the active ingredients’ ability to penetrate skin, or its activity time. Hyaluronic acid which is known to facilitate and maintain hydration in the skin and Glycerin and Urea which help in locking in the moisture.

My Experience:

Right from applying the mask on my face till waking up the next morning, I found it super comfortable and hydrating. For some with super oily skin, it can feel a bit heavy and in that case you can wipe off the extra from your face or even wash it off after an hour or so.

I personally, liked massaging everything into my skin and leaving it overnight. The next morning I did feel that my skin was supple and hydrated. So in terms of holding up to my expectation, I would say the mask did well. I can absolutely recommend it to people with dry to very dry skin for that extra punch of moisture.

If you ask, would I repurchase it: I doubt it. Main reason being, it is recommended to use on a weekly basis, so even the little tub I bought will last me a long time. Also, after using the awesome – Shiseido Ibuki sleeping mask I am becoming a little greedy to find similar masks that go beyond just hydration.

My verdict : I will give it a 5/5 for meeting my expectation in terms of being deeply hydrating BUT if I have to rate it as a sleeping mask in general I would give it a 3.5/5.

Do come back for my review on two more sleeping masks in the coming weeks. In between I will be reviewing some other skincare products such as facial oils and cleansers …

    • Hey thanks sweetie, yes I love some of the Kiehl’s products very dearly.
      You will love this mask from Shiseido, it is a bit heavy on fragrance but it is very soothing and spa like and doesn’t bother much. If possible try it out in a store , just for the fragrance. The formula is amazing and I am thoroughly enjoying using it thus far.

  2. This one’s good but way too pricey. Currently I am using Innisfree rice mask which is basically a sleeping mask too and loving it!!! And it’s affordable too as the quantity is quite less.

    • Hey Bhumika, thanks for introducing this new mask to me, will see if I can get my hands on it. I have lost a package in mail from a Korean product online shop and in stores, it is so difficult to buy Korean cosmetics where I live ☹️ Rice mask sounds exciting, it will definitely have brightening effect, which I love in any mask.
      I found this one from Kiehl’s good for hydration but otherwise plain OK and I will probably not repurchase it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts babe 😘

      • Yes! It’s available at nykaa for 150₹ I guess!! Pretty decent. Even I am hunting for good sites to shop korean brands. Do let me know if you find any. 🙂

      • Wow that’s pretty affordable. Nykaa rocks, you guys are lucky. I don’t know about the rest of the Europe but in Germany and Switzerland or at least the two cities I dabble between, Korean skincare is not as popular as in the US and elsewhere. I found one online shop in Munich, which carried lots of Korean brands but it’s been three months now that I am trying to claim reimbursement for the package, which never reached me ☹️. In Zurich, I found some very high end Korean products and am not willing to pay that much especially when I know one can buy good Korean cosmetics at a much cheaper price. Ahah that’s my sad story ☹️
        May be when I am in India next time, I try Nykaa.

      • Do try yesstyle.com. They have many good korean brands and have decent shipping rates. I’ve ordered for the first time from them so can’t comment on delivery and stuff. But they do ship to Europe. Hope you find your stuff there. 🤗
