Kiehl's Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque is a very popular product of the company. I have read a lot and lot of good reviews about this so i finally had to try this out. It contains 28 ml of the product and costs INR Rs 1350. I purchased this online from a shopping site. It comes in a plastic tub container which is green in color with a white lid. It smells like of neem tulsi toothpaste, not a fan of the fragrance. The product is green in color and kind of creamy in texture.

Now, there are various directions of usage for this masque, in several websites and beauty blogs, however i did not get any instructional from Kiehl's alongwith this package. When i looked into the Kiehl's website, i found the direction as mentioned above here. I had been using this face masque on alternate days, however after 3 days i had to discontinue usage. The masque made me break out horribly, and i got pimples again on my forehead and nose. Even though i never used the tissue-off technique, since i felt my skin got very oily after applying this cream facial masque, i kept it on for an hour or two and then washed it off with water and patted it dry with a towel. But even that could not save my skin from breaking out. I could feel my skin got oilier within few minutes after application and then this happened!
However, i am contemplating on retrying this product once again. So may be after a few days break, i will give this one more try, and might change the technique of using it. Overall, right now i am not at all happy with this.
Kiehl's Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque comes in a tub so it is kind of messy to dip the fingers in and take out the product, also i have long fingernails so this always gets inside my nails and then i have to clean it again. Consumes time and effort.
