Thanks to Vinna, I finally got to try my first Glow Recipe product! KEY INGREDIENTS • Nutrient dense avocado • PHA for gentle exfoliation • Matcha to protect skin • Encapsulated retinol WHAT DOES RETINOL DO? It increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines, texture, spots and hyperpigmentation, and to clean out clogged pores. HIGHLIGHTS • Creamy, rich texture • Gentle and non-irritating • First time retinol user friendly • Left skin feeling plump and hydrated I knew retinoids could help with fine lines and wrinkles, which aren’t really a concern of mine, so I never thought to try any— But I came to learn that it helps with hyperpigmentation and texture too. I was a little nervous using retinol for the first time, but the encapsulated form in this mask is a gentler and less irritating than traditional treatments. I used it as a wash-off because I move a lot in my sleep and was worried about leaving it on for too long. It felt wonderfully cooling and soothing, and I’m pleasantly surprised with how plump and hydrated my skin felt after I took it off. I’m going to use it once a week and then maybe eventually up my usage to see if I see any improvements with texture and spots too!

Avocado melt retinol sleeping mask
GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask 🥑 I want to talk to you guys about my favorite retinol product I've used so far, the @glowrecipe avocado melt glow sleeping mask! Firstly, I've gotta say I automatically love anything avocado themed and this makes me feel like I'm literally putting avocado on my face because the texture resembles it so much, it's green and creamy. Some fun facts about the product is that it contains encapsulated retinol, which allows the retinol to slowly release, as well as PHAs which gently exfoliate. As for the performance of the product itself, I am very impressed. I love the fact that this is also a nourishing night mask, because it combats the dryness that retinol can give you. In the mornings after I use this, my face always looks rejuvenated, but also very moisturized. Overall, this would be amazing for anyone looking for a retinol that is non-drying! I've been trying to find the percentage of retinol in this, but can't find the information anywhere, so if anybody knows, let me know! .
Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask 🥑 by @glowrecipe I really like this mask by Glow Recipe. It can be used as a sleeping mask or a 10 minute mask. I like to use it as a 10 minute mask 1-2 times a week. I tried wearing it overnight but I move a lot in sleep so didn’t work out for me 😂. But the mask is really moisturizing and hydrating. My skin felt more cleaner and smoother 💚. - #skincare#glowrecipe#avocado#avocadomask#skincareblogger#skincareroutine#skincaretips#skincareproducts#skincarejunkie#skincarelove#sephora#mask

This sleeping mask was love at first use. It is supposed to be applied generously and kept on overnight, and every time I use it I wake up with clear glowing skin. It is also beautifully hydrating. This retinol mask is great for anti-aging because retinol promotes cell turnover which will over time, decrease wrinkles and imperfections. This mask is gentle and effective, and would be amazing for anyone looking for an anti-aging product or looking to clear up blemishes. This is my favorite mask and I can’t recommend it enough.

The 24k gold and cucumber g
. The 24k gold and cucumber gel mask I’ve used before from samples I had and always wanted to purchase so I’m happy to have them back! The 24k Gold Mask is good for firming and lifting which is something I need to start focusing on! It also left my skin feeling revitalized and glowing, I’m hoping with more long term use I will see the lifting effects! The Cucumber Gel Mask is so hydrating and soothing! I used it yesterday and my face felt so nice after! I have dry skin which can sometimes get sensitized and this always helped hydrate and calm it. . . The pumpkin enzyme and moor mud masks are both new to me but both have me super intrigued! The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is a resurfacing mask to reveal smoother, younger, more radiant looking skin. It smells like pumpkin pie and the texture is so interesting I can’t wait to use this one. The Irish Moor Mud Purifying Mask is meant to purify, minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. I’m all about anything for fine lines right now so I’m all about this one! Although it’s a purifying and detoxifying mask, it’s also hydrating due to the hijiki seaweed so I have high hopes for this one!

the truth about retinol
the truth about retinol
retinol is often used in anti-aging products, claiming to help you keep your youth. but is that true? what is retinol a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A, helping move along new cell growth. benefits - fades the appearance of dark spots - minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles - smoothed uneven skin texture - removes dead skin cells - tightens pores common side effects one common side effect is slight redness and dryness, which can decrease as you and your skin get used to the product. false retinol myths - you must start with a large amount - results will come immediately - drug store products with retinol don’t work - irritated skin as an effect is normal - it can only help with fine lines and wrinkles in conclusion, i do believe retinol can help many people’s skin! it is a great product when looking for good pore products. when wanting retinol products i recommend the glow recipe avocado melt eye sleeping mask and the glow recipe avocado melt sleeping mask!

Avocados 🥑 aren’t just for toast ya know?
Avocados 🥑 aren’t just for toast ya know?
If you aren’t living underneath an avocado tree...you know that these mushy green miracles are all the rage lately for skin and for tummies😂. I won’t lie, I pretty much buy any skincare with avocados as part of the ingredients and will order anything on a menu with avocado 🥑. This sleeping mask does not disappoint. It is creamy and hydrating and it says it will brighten and exfoliate while keeping skin plump and happy. This is the old formula that doesn’t have the encapsulated retinol so I can’t speak to the efficacy of that formula but I do notice how bright and smooth my skin looks when I layer this on top of the rest of my routine at night. It’s target market is for dry or normal skin types but I do feel like even greasier gals/guys can benefit from the effects of this mask! Especially because it has PHA and avocado inside. It can help with brightening hyperpigmentation and dark spots and even tone and texture! The texture is a thick and smooth cream. It’s layers wonderfully and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It is of course a sleeping mask so it is very dense but doesn’t feel occlusive or suffocating on the skin. I would definitely recommend this product but also full disclaimer, I haven’t tried the reformulation so I’m not sure. This container has lasted me FOREVER so I definitely think it’s worth the price at $49 for 2.3 oz. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask

she’s a fan fave for a reason 🍉 GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask is a lightweight overnight AHA mask meant to gently chemically exfoliate while you sleep. it’s meant to help mostly with dullness, dark spots, and anti-aging. it’s a cool, goopy texture that feels like runny jello (if that makes sense), but its surprisingly not sticky! i’ve had this mini FOREVER, i bought it awhile ago to test out and after using it religiously for a few weeks i put it in my skin fridge and forgot about it. i recently rediscovered it and remembered why i loved it so much. i always wake up with fresh, radiant skin whenever i use this mask, and i’d recommend it to anyone who is trying to get started with AHAs because its super gentle but gives results. the full size is $45, but i think it’s worth it. it smells delicious, it gives your skin a boost, and its easy to slap on right before bed.

A mini review of my current fa
A mini review of my current favourite masks: 💜 Drunk elephant - Baby Facial. This is a 25% AHA & 2% BHA mix mask that you use once per week. This mask resurfaces the skin and exfoliates pores to break down dead skin cells. This gives you the brightest, most smoothest skin ever. 💜 Herbivore botanicals - Blue Tansy. This mask contains BHA which is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory, fruit enzymes which exfoliate and leave smooth skin and blue tansy oil which gives the mask its colour and helps to soothe irritation and reduce redness. . 💜 Tatcha - Violet C Radiance Mask. This contains Japanese Beautyberry, 2 types of Vitamin C and AHA's from 7 fruits. This mask brightens and softens the skin. I love that it softens fine lines too which I've noticed since using this. 💜 Tatcha - Luminous Dewy Skin Mask. Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, and a high concentration of botanical oils and extracts to nourish the skin. Leaves you with the most gorgeous glow afterwards with plump skin. I am so interested in the whole dewy line. 💜 Pixi - Detoxifeye Patches. Contains Hyaluronic Acid and Caffeine to smooth and depuff and helps reduce dark circles. I use these every second day and wow do they really reduce dark circles. 💜 La mer - Intensive Revitalizing Mask. This mask energises, plumps and protects the skin and neutralises free radicals. This just super hydrates my skin. 💜 Pixi - Glow Mud Mask. Contains Kaolin Clay to cleanse and purify, Sea Salt to detoxify and Ginseng to brighten and clarify. 💜 Glow recipe - Watermelon Glow Jelly Mask.
