Ahead, we share everything you need to know about the Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Overnight Mask, including our full product review.
WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT MASKS?
Before we dive into all the details around the Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Overnight Mask, we’d like to take a moment to discuss overnight masks in general. Not to be confused with rinse-off masks, overnight masks are applied in the evening—often prior to shut-eye—and are typically meant to be worn throughout the duration of sleep. During the skin’s regeneration process that takes place during deep sleep, an overnight face mask is an efficient way to deliver skin-loving ingredients to your complexion all night long.
Editor’s note: Overnight face masks are not created equal. While most formulas call for extended periods of wear, some may need to be removed before hitting the hay. Always follow the instructions listed on the product label.
THE BENEFITS OF KIEHL’S GINGER LEAF & HIBISCUS FIRMING OVERNIGHT MASK
Powered by sustainably-sourced ginger leaf extract, as well as botanical hibiscus seed extract cultivated in Southern India, this creamy overnight mask boasts an indulgent, velvety texture that would make a great addition to your evening skin care routine. As you fall into a deep slumber, allow the formula to get to work, helping to deliver visibly smoother-looking skin and skin that feels firmer.
Another reason to fall in love with this face mask? It boasts sustainably-sourced ginger leaf extract that’s grown and collected by 14 local women in Hoa Binh and in the Bắc Giang province of Vietnam. As part of the brand’s initiative to give back to communities, Kiehl’s provided the women with tools for safer, more efficient farming, educated the local community of farmers in Vietnam on sustainable farming techniques, and more. Beyond your skin, this particular mask benefits an entire community in Vietnam, which is all the more reason to start indulging today!

Secondly, my skin felt immediately firmer, and that feeling continued into the next morning. It’s my new favorite way to end the day!
