In my world, eye creams are either hit or miss. I do not care for the "so-so" eye products (and considering their astronomical price tags – they better not be a one-trick-pony). In this post we are going to chat about Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask. This product has glowing reviews online and after more than a month of using it, I am here to let the [avocado] cat out of the bag.

My Skin: dry, sensitive, hereditary dark circles

About The Product

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask (42 USD; Made in USA) – claims to brighten, de-puff and treat the appearance of dark circles, all while nourishing and soothing the under-eye area.

Clean🤍 Cruelty-free🐇 Vegan🍃 Recyclable Packaging ♻️

Packaging: you’ve got to admire Glow Recipe for creating this unique and eye-catching design. All of their products are housed in these cutesy [weighty] glass jars, that you can easily recycle or re-purpose afterwards. Thankfully, the eye mask/cream comes with a mini spoon-spatula, which makes it easy to scoop the product out of [quite a petite] jar with even smaller mouth (which otherwise would be nearly impossible to do). You get 0.5 fl.oz/ 15 ml of product here, which is a standard amount you normally get from most brands.

Formula: Glow Recipe highlight three key ingredients in this water-based eye mask/cream – Encapsulated Retinol (gently improves the look of uneven skin tone), Avocado (antioxidant and nutrient-rich that should fight wrinkles and protect from environmental aggressors), Coffeeberry (revitalize, soothe). You also see Niacinamide, Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate being listed here. Glycerin is literally the second ingredient (which means its content is high), making Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask that extra bit hydrating.

Texture: this eye mask/cream has the most delicious, whipped consistency that reminds me a lot of an actual [really well] mashed avocado. It is richer than most eye creams, but still feels very lightweight and sets to a natural skin finish.

Scent: I detect no scent whatsoever, however, “parfum” is listed at the very end of the ingredients list.

Application: Glow Recipe suggest that you can use this eye mask/cream strictly at night, without any other eye products. I would also recommend saving this guy for your PM routine only, because you know… Retinol! You seriously need the smallest amount (less than a pea size). Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask spreads out like butter instantly soothing and hydrating the delicate skin around eyes.
