I have to say, that this Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser from Kiehl's is definitely up there with the best of the best when it comes to skincare! Formulated with Moroccan Lava Clay, this 2-in-1 facial wash deeply cleanses acting as both an exfoliator, and as a masque. 


To be used as a daily cleanser, I firstly dampened my face and rubbed the palms of my hands together, and began to massage the cleanser onto my skin. The texture of the cleanser felt a little runny and thin compared to other cleansers I have used before, so be a little quick when it comes to the application! As I rinsed the cleanser off, my face immediately appeared hydrated and instantly I had a dewy glow without it appearing too shiny!

As a masque, I made sure that my face was free from any product and had been cleansed before application. Again the texture is runny and fine, but I found this easier to apply as a masque as it spread across my face easier! I left the masque upon my face for 5 minutes as instructed, and as the masque began to develop, the colour changed to a lighter grey indicating that it was time to remove the masque. I then patted the masque off and my face felt smoother and softer to touch, and the pores I had upon my nose had been reduced in size! 

Overall, one of my favourite cleansers from Kiehl's, and if I had to choose between the cleanser and the masque? Then I would go for the cleanser as I found this to be incredibly simple, quick and effective to apply!
