The mask has a creamy texture that becomes transparent and sticky after application on the face. When I applied it in the evening as a night care, I had to rinse it off after a while because it was sticking to the pillowcase. During use during the day, the sticky texture was hard to wash off, and I didn’t notice any significant results. My skin was neither softer, nor nourished nor hydrated after using it. I felt like I had applied glue to my skin. The mask has a wonderful scent, mostly orange, and I also like Origin’s business policy of minimal packaging, but it doesn’t have a hydrating effect (at least not on my skin), nor did I like the texture and I wouldn’t buy it again.

Kiehl’s avocado mask
According to the manufacturer, Kiehl’s mask instantly hydrates the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. It contains avocado fruit extract that hydrates and moisturizes the skin, avocado oil rich in omega fatty acids that nourishes and softens the skin and evening primrose oil that helps maintain moisture levels in the skin.
Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Glycerin, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Squalane, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Propanediol, Oenothera Biennis Oil / Evening Primrose Oil, Butyrospermum Petai 100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Persea Gratissima Oil / Avocado Oil, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima Fruit Extract / Avocado Fruit Extract, Bentonite, Phenoxyethanol, Gellan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Melia Azadirachta Of Chide Leaf , CI 77288 / Chromium Oxide Greens, Magnesium Sulfate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Melia Azadirachta Flower.
Contains glycerin, squalane, evening primrose oil, shea butter, avocado oil, cocoa butter, avocado fruit extract, phenoxyethanol, oyster mushroom extract and oregano flower.
The first disadvantage of this mask is its application. The texture is thick and firm, so you need to grab a larger amount of mask with your fingers, which you then rub between your fingers and massage into the skin of the face. At the same time, the thick texture crumbles and falls around, and only a part of you will be able to massage it into your face very carefully. By massaging it turns into a partially oily texture and then stands well on the skin. After 10-15 minutes you can rinse it with lukewarm water. It washes off easily, leaving the skin softer and hydrated.
Since a lot of this expensive product is lost by application and the results are just solid, I will not buy this mask again, although it is one of their better products for me.
Kiehl’s used to be one of my favorite brands, but today it is no longer. There are several reasons for this, I think that their formulas or composition are outdated because they use a lot of questionable ingredients, which today are easily replaced by less harmful ones, and that their products are simply too expensive for the formulations they offer.

GLOW RECIPE avocado mask
Glow Recipe night mask with avocado, encapsulated retinol and PHA acids, according to the manufacturer, deeply nourishes, regenerates and gently exfoliates facial skin. The founders of the brand are two American women of Korean descent who want to bring the benefits of well-known Korean care closer to women around the world with their products. The concept of the GR brand is interesting, they combine fruit with active ingredients such as retinol, acids …

Contains avocado oil and its extract, hyaluronic acid, squalane, gluconolactone (PHA acid), curcumin, vitamin E, retinol, ginger root extract, rice, chamomile, rosemary, lavender and saffron. It contains phenoxyethanol.
Encapsulated retinol stimulates collagen production and fills small wrinkles, acts on hyperpigmentation and evens out the complexion. Avocado oil and extract with the help of linoleic and oleic acid deeply nourish and soothe the skin. Mild PHA acids gently remove dead skin cells and allow for better absorption of ingredients.
The mask has a rich, oily and creamy texture, it spreads easily and is absorbed into the skin. It is perfect for dry skin and can be used as a night mask and / or during the day and rinsed off after 15-20 minutes. The skin is nourished, smooth and elastic. It is applied to cleansed skin, and I sometimes, like all nourishing masks, apply it as the last step of my evening care routine. It has nourished the skin perfectly and I can recommend it for everyone who has dry and very dry skin type, although the manufacturer states that it is for normal to dry skin type. The addition of retonil and PHA acid is a plus of this mask, while the high price is a disadvantage.
