Got Dry & Sensitive Skin? Try This Avocado Mask

This is a hugely unpopular opinion, but I feel the need to share. I don't like... avocado. Even when it's smashed on an overpriced piece of toast and mixed with feta with some chili flakes on top. Not a fan. But it's a different story when it comes to putting in on my face.

Now, as a skincare expert, I'm strongly opposed to DIY at-home concoctions (lemon juice is *not* good for your skin, people) so I prefer my avocado mask in the form of Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask. To be honest, it's probably cheaper than buying a few avocados from a fruit shop from what I hear.

Why Is This Mask Good For Your Skin?

Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask is formulated with Avocado Fruit Extract, Evening Primrose Oil and the hero, Avocado Oil, which boasts a hell of a lot of benefits for the skin.

It’s rich in vitamins, including A, B, D & E, and has a high level of potassium, amino acids & essential fatty acids. This oil acts as an exceptional emollient & moisturising ingredient and has powerful antioxidant properties which target environmental aggressors. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help to soothe and calm irritated skin.

The Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask leaves skin feeling nourished and soft, while helping prevent water loss by sealing in moisture with its creamy, fragrance-free formula.

What's Everyone Saying About This Mask?

Great new mask for dry skin!


Just got this and in love with it already! Doesn't have a fragrance which is great because it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Skin feels really plump, hydrated and calm after using this. Gentle alternative to the Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask as my skin is too sensitive for that one. Love!

Great refreshing mask


I've used this a few times now and it always leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed. Strangely it has a texture and feel of real avocado. It goes on more like a cream once rubbed in and does not set like other masks, it stays wet on your face. It washes off easily and skin feels moisturised and soft afterward. The scent is subtle but nice.

Really like this mask


My skin is so soft and hydrated after using this mask. The texture put me off at first, because it's somewhat firm, like an actual avocado. I find that if I take out some (and you only need a little, making it more cost-effective), put it between my palms, and rub them together, it goes on really well.
