Product Review: Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask by Glow Recipe
I gave a quick review for this mask over on my Instagram last week which was much less of a review and more of my immediate thoughts about the mask after just one use and basically me encouraging my followers to BUY IT AND TRY IT! I still stand behind this post but today I would like to follow up with a full and more in depth review for my blog readers.

Glow Recipe , described by Cult Beauty UK as “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.” is the brand made famous for their wonderfully candy scented watermelon overnight exfoliating mask. This season they are back in the Sephora aisles and online with a brand new and equally innovative overnight mask and the reviews are in: it’s a huge hit! But for anyone thinking that this is just another version of their Watermelon Mask, don’t be fooled because Glow Recipe’s Avocado Mask is altogether unique in how it works and delivers it’s own distinct results.
The Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is beautifully presented and the packaging is everything you would want from a kbeauty brand. The jar itself is smartly designed and almost a bit too lovely if you ask me. When I use my last drop of product, I will wince as I toss it into the recycling can. This is one attractive jar. It is certainly made for Instagramming even if you’re not a skincare blogger.
The product comes with a small clear spoon like that in the Watermelon Mask. You only need a little bit of the mask and the product has a creamy texture that feels like a crisp cool cloud. It absorbs quickly compared with other sleeping masks and the fast absorption of the product is probably my favorite part. This isn’t your typical overnight sleeping mask that you’ll be fussing over. The Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask sets into your skin about as normally as your regular nighttime skincare do. It’s somehow a bit heavier than a normal night cream but fluffy at the same time because it gently plumps your skin almost immediately.
The overnight results were even better than expected because I woke up to extremely moisturized, bright, and soothed skin. I don’t believe that there was any residue of any kind left over on my pillow in the morning and I wasn’t bothered by the mask one bit while trying to sleep. This alone is a miracle. The Avocado Melt Mask is extremely moisturizing and is perfect for the winter months and I am really glad to have it around for the rest of the winter here in Michigan. Glow Recipe is a hero! I appreciate how gentle it feels on my face as I have especially sensitive skin. The ingredients in this mask are uniquely designed to be gentle on ones skin while producing results.
The avocado in the mask provides a natural collagen and provides moisture. Manukau honey gives stressed out skin some extra relief with antioxidants that are especially soothing. The PHAs (Polyhydroxy Acids) are really what make this mask unique in my opinion, and the combination of ingredients is what makes this the perfect winter mask for anyone who struggles with any kind of skin sensitivity or redness. The mask uses a PHA opposed to the more frequently used AHA/BHA chemical exfoliant that you’ll find in many skincare products. PHAs are described best by Refinery29 “Polyhydroxy acids, or PHAs, are being touted as the perfect acid for sensitive skin, especially for those who have tried the more common forms and found them too irritating for even occasional use.”*
Overall I am giving this mask a 10/10 for me personally. The combination of gentle exfoliation that the PHAs provide along with the deep moisture achieved with the other ingredients, it’s the perfect winter weather mask. My skin looks amazing after just a few uses and I can tell that the jar will last a long time despite already shelling out a few scoops to select friends and family members who I had to have try it as well. With their newest product, The Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask, Glow Recipe provides another solid product and proves that they are a brand that deserves respect within the over saturated beauty product market. They continue to deliver exceptional and noteworthy skincare solutions for their customers around the globe. The overall experience of the Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask was satisfying and invigorating from beginning to end. Glow Recipe is an absolute treasure of a brand and they are here to set the bar for everyone else as far as I am concerned.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and reading this latest review! It’s been a while since I’ve done a decent one and I promise that I will be getting back to doing regular work on this blog beginning next year. I already have a few other product reviews started and I can’t wait to relaunch this site in 2019! And for anyone who may have missed it, this was my Instagram post about the mask from a few days ago.
Prediction: This mask will be making next year’s “best of. . .” lists. My skin looks hydrated, plump, and bright. I used it exactly as instructed on the jar and the results were magic. Reminds me of the first time I used the watermelon sleeping mask. The jar is beautiful too! I know that part isn’t exactly important but it’s fun to mention. But I am going to go ahead and fully recommend this mask. I tend to buy everything but I don’t recommend doing that. Ever. Always be selective and picky about what you buy and how you spend your hard earned money. And with that said, I only do this and try so much so you don’t have to buy this is one you’ll want to add to your bathroom cabinet. ✨🥑✨ The Avocado Sleeping Mask is a total worth it product and as usual Glow Recipe fails to disappoint. The product is a solid 10/10. The reviews are legit. Sometimes new products take time to pick up a reputation but I gotta say, I think this one will quickly be favorited by the masses. I will be doing a full review for my blog in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for stopping by my Instagram, hope you found this write up a bit helpful. 💚💚💚
