Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask

 Bring back the sparkle in your eyes with this beautiful targeted eye treatment from cult Korean brand Glow Recipe.

Known for their super cute, kitsch packaging and natural, fruity ingredients their intensive Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask is simply divine.

If like me you suffer with dull, tired looking eyes plagued with fine lines, dark circles and puffiness then you’re going to love this sleeping mask.

Sitting within the Avocado line of products, this luxurious Ophthalmologist tested and Dermatologist tested cream packs an incredible punch.

Potent and powerful yet surprisingly gentle, it is perfect for all skin types, particularly dry skin but also sensitive skin.


A must-have for skincare lovers, this avocado green pot of joy helps to brighten, moisturise, smooth fine lines and de-puffs the eye area without the harsh side effects often associated with the use of retinols.

Boasting an impressive list of long-lasting active ingredients, the key ingredient as you may expect is Avocado.

In fact, the formula boasts both avocado oil and avocado extract, rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin E and C to soothe, nourish and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Not to be outdone, another hero ingredient is Encapsulated Retinol which helps to dramatically rejuvenate your skin and thanks to the encapsulation process, releases smaller amounts at a time, making it more gentle than traditional retinol treatments.

The antioxidant Niacinamide (water soluble Vitamin B3) works in synergy with the natural substances in your skin to brighten your complexion, strengthen your skin’s barrier and lift the appearance of dark circles and soften fine lines.

Even more antioxidants are present in the form of Coffeeberry (the seed of the coffee plant) which is also a natural source of caffeine to reduce puffiness and offers a gentle boost to your skin.

Free from a host of skincare nasties and chemicals, including synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, parabens, sulphates and silicones, the mask itself possesses a really beautiful, fresh, fruity scent.

Subtle enough to not be overpowering, it is appealing and light.

In terms of texture, the mask is luxuriously rich and creamy.

Thick and soft, it is intensely nourishing without feeling heavy or oily.

It glides across your skin, instantly quenching dry skin and breathing life back into tired, dull looking eyes.

To use as an eye sleeping mask, apply to freshly cleansed skin prior to using a serum or moisturiser.

Apply a pea-sized amount to the entire orbital eye area and gently pat into the skin.

There’s no need to layer with other eye creams, this bad boy is powerful enough on its own.

Come morning, your eyes feel soft and comfortable and look lighter and brighter.


You can even use it as a daytime treatment too should you wish, but as with all retinol products you must include SPF in your routine as the formula can make your skin more sensitive to the damaging rays from the sun.

It has all the qualities that I look for in an eye cream, rich but not heavy, it offers long-lasting moisture without feeling greasy and better still, after using twice daily for a number of weeks I’ve noticed a dramatic difference in the overall texture of my eye area.

Whereas before I could sometimes notice a slightly crepey appearance to my lids, this seems to have all but disappeared.

The skin under my eyes feels firmer and my dark circles have definitely improved.

It seems I’m not alone in these results as in a clinical study of 33 subjects 97% of subjects saw a significant improvement in fine lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks.

97%. That’s some statistic!

Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Sleeping Eye Mask is available now from Cult Beauty and costs £41.
