Somehow Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask made it into my skin care collection. Welcome to another day of skincare review, and I’m your host Mysranne (cheesy AF!)
ABOUT THE GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT SLEEPING MASK
The Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is a creamy sleeping mask designed to revitalize and nourish tired skin overnight. It can also be used as a wash off mask. Either way, your dry and dull skin will be soothed! Each jar comes with 80ml of product for $45 (about N16,000). This mask is free of Parabens, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, Silicones, Phthalates, Alcohol, Synthetic Dyes, Synthetic Fragrance. It is also a cruelty-free product.
Advocating natural, gentle skin care products, Glow Recipe’s goal is to make South Korea’s latest skin care trends accessible to beauty-forward women across the globe. Taking your beauty sleep to the next level, this creamy formula is laced with plenty of avocado to deeply nourish, manuka honey to protect against environmental stressors and firm, and PHA (poly hydroxy acid) to very gently exfoliate away dead skin cells so you can wake up glowing. Sweet dreams!
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT SLEEPING MASK
Glow Recipe is one of those new Korean skincare brands; think cute pastel packaging, glass skin and fruity-themed ingredients (Avocado, watermelon, pineapple). This product comes in a premium-feeling glass pot; which makes the product appear more luxurious , and it can be recycled, thus preserving the ecosystem.
It also comes with a little spatula, which is good for a potted product, so you aren’t getting bacteria in the formula by using your fingers.
Glow Recipe was not joking when they said this was a quick fix for dry, dull skin. It has a beautiful, light, creamy texture that feels rich, but not oily. It sinks into the skin and hydrates immediately without leaving any heavy residues. There is no perfume added and it has a faint smell that i can’t quite compare to any familiar scent.
It has a bit of every good ingredient your skin craves from Vitamin A derived from the star ingredient Avocado, Vitamin D and E are not lacking. It also has glycerin which is a good humectant and for some reason a not so regular ingredient, Kaolin which you would find in wash off clay/mud masks.
This also contains PHAs, a very gentle form of chemical exfoliation. The ingredient will help the skin look smoother and more radiant overnight. The formula itself is a lovely light-but-nourishing cream. You don’t actually need a lot of product, which is good given how small the pot is!
HOW TO USE THE GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT SLEEPING MASK
I have been using this every other night as a wash off mask. I am obsessed with how it leaves supple, soft and nourished my skin appears after use. Although you can also apply a dime size as the last step of your routine and leave on overnight, I rather use it as a wash off mask.
