Kathleen has been a favourite skincare brand of mine for a couple of years and I already use a number of their products. I got rather excited when I heard they were launching a range of face masks and couldn’t wait to try one for myself. The range includes a Collagen Mask, Bright Mask, Dead Sea Mud Clay Mask and Deep Pore Treatment Mask, all having different benefits depending on your skin type.
I’ve recently got into the habit of popping on a sheet mask in the morning. I’d much rather be relaxing with a gorgeous smelling face mask working it’s magic while indulging in a luxurious bath. With the stresses of daily life I’m making a conscious effort to look after myself better and Kathleen’s Collagen Mask is the perfect addition to my pamper routine.
Kathleen is a premium natural skincare brand and based in the UK. Their products aren’t tested on animals and completely natural and free from Parabens, Alcohol and other nasty toxins.
I had no doubts as to which of the four new delicious face masks I would try and opted for the Collagen Mask* because, you know, being a 30 plus blogger I need all the help I can get. It’s suitable for sensitive skin with large pores and signs of aging, so at first glance, it ticked all the boxes. Before I’d put the mask anywhere near my face I noticed the most amazing smell coming from the jar thanks to the mix of Bergamot, Frankincense, and Geranium Essential Oils. They not only have wonderful skincare benefits but the aromatherapy oils also help calm and relax your mood.

How To Use
First I cleansed my skin and applied a thin layer of the Collagen Mask. The instructions say to leave it on for between 10 and 15 minutes, which I think is a good length of time to relax with a face mask. Inhaling the dreamy aromatherapy fragrance was a wonderful experience while I lay soaking in the bath. After 15 minutes I gently removed the mask using a damp muslin cloth and rinsed my face thoroughly to ensure their wasn’t any residue left on my skin.
I really LOVE this face mask from Kathleen. The texture is lightweight and feels soothing on my skin, you do only need a light layer as little goes a long way. I’ve applied it twice since it arrived about a week ago, I have sensitive skin and I’m pleased to say there wasn’t any irritation after I’d used it. The mask definitely leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and my complexion looking brighter. During the colder months my skin can look a bit dull but this mask certainly gave it a boost. The fine lines around my chin and around eyes were less visible, which I’m so happy about. Some masks have left my skin feeling tight after use but with this one my skin felt nourished and hydrated.
Would I purchase the Kathleen Collagen Face Mask in the future? Yes absolutely, without a doubt, possibly trying the Bright Mask. I love that I really noticed a difference straight away in my skins appearance compared to other face masks I’ve used. It costs £28 for a 60ml jar, you only need a tiny amount so it will last quite a while. I wasn’t only left with healthy, firmer looking skin, I felt totally relaxed thanks to the divine fragrance of essential oils.
