Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque Review


My skin looks very “clear” the next day.


Very tricky to define how skin “removed of pollution”, should look like.


I have read many mixed reviews about this mask – and was a bit unsure if I should get it. But the smell was so fresh I couldn‘t resist (and yes I was travelling in the US where it was much cheaper then in Europe – so I convinced myself this was a “bargain”).

Basically this mask promises to get rid of signs of pollution – problem is that what those signs aren‘t really defined by Kiehls, or made totally clear by any chorus of scientists, at least not yet. I know, that the topic of pollutions effect on skin is starting to emerge in scientific reports and the new “it” topic (the new “sun can damage you skin”), and I‘m sure we will see many new products on the market targeting specifically the effect of pollution – but for now we don‘t really have a visible way of measuring how efficient these anti-pollution products are. If you want an overview of the main themes in reserach in this area right now, this The Guardian article is brilliant.

Conclusion  – this mask is sticky, but smells fresh, can be left on overnight and makes my skin look very clear the next morning. Does it protect my skin against future wrinkles and signs of me living in a polluted capital – don‘t know, but sure hope so!


Value for money: starstarstarstarnostar

Does what it promises: starstarstarstarnostar (don‘t know! Read the whole review above to find out why!)
