I can’t imagine slathering my face in Thousand island dressing, but there’s one dip your skin will surely love – FarmHouse Fresh Guac Star Revitalizing Avocado Hydration Mask [$22 at FarmHouse Fresh]! With cold air blasting our cheeks every time we go outside and dry air from indoor heating adding on to the damage, we need to not only drink more liquids than usual, but also to retain that moisture inside the skin somehow. And that’s where the nourishing qualities of avocado truly shine!
FarmHouse Fresh sounds pretty confident that you’ll love this fabulous mask. Here’s what they say about it:
Get quenched and chill out with this deep dip of cool hydration! This revitalizing mask is packed with fresh avocado butter, extract and oil to deliver key fatty acids to support the outermost layer of skin that helps protect us from environmental stresses. Your parched skin is instantly soothed with an additional host of powerful antioxidants. Plus, it includes anti-irritants like Allantoin and Green Tea, and skin-loving Sodium PCA, which helps keep hydration locked in.
Ingredients: Water, Tapioca Flour, Glyceryl Stearate, Emulsifying Wax, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Cetyl Alcohol, Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Avocado Butter, Caffeine, Polysorbate 80, Glycolic Acid, Avocado Fruit Extract, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Methyl Lactate, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Coffee Seed Extract, Pomegranate Fruit Extract, Goji Fruit Extract, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Copper Chlorphyllin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylil Glycol, Natural Fragrance.
Like all FarmHouse Fresh products, this cruelty-free mask is 98% natural, and is Paraben and Sulfate Free. I always appreciated that about their products, but if you think they have to compromise on the efficacy because they chose not to include certain non-natural chemicals in the formula, you’d be wrong. I swear, FHF uses some kind of magic, because everything I tried has been consistently better than most of my other skin and bodycare products. But I digress…
FarmHouse Fresh Guac Star Avocado Mask can be used for your face and body anytime you need a boost of hydration, I particularly love it for *ahem* the décolletage area, because it refines the skin and makes it petal-soft in just 15 minutes. I have an old flat foundation brush that I re-purposed for various skincare needs, and it’s just perfect for the task! It always feels like a very special SPA ritual every time I dip it in the jar and gently spread the product across my face and neck, which really adds to the experience.
If you want to make this mask do a double duty, keep it in the fridge for instant depuffing! It’s Winter here in Michigan, so the last thing I want is a cold mask on my face right now, but come Spring I will totally give this method a try if I still have anything left in the jar.
Like everything from FarmHouse Fresh, this avocado mask smells amazing! It has a faint sweet fragrance of ripe pineapple and papaya, which is noticeable but not super strong. It doesn’t linger on the skin either, so there won’t be a scent-clash with the rest of your skincare or perfume.
If you are new to the brand, I also highly recommend checking out their hand creams: they’re seriously some of the best I’ve ever tried!
