Sheet masks are lyocell fiber masks that are infused with an active ingredient. These sheet masks are very effective as they perfectly hug facial contours for better and more even penetration of active ingredients. Sephora has a whole line of masks that claim to help our skin in a specific way. After experiencing good results from Sephora Pomegranate and Orchid sheet masks, I picked their Rose [reviewed HERE] and Avocado variants this time. This Avocado face mask claims to nurture and support healthy skin by offering intense nutrition and relieving sensitive areas.
Price: 100 Thai Bhat (INR 200); however, it is priced for INR 430 in India

My Experience with Sephora Collection Moisturizing and Nourishing Avocado Face Mask
Packaging: Sephora masks come in color-coded sachets matching their core ingredient. This Avocado face mask comes in a bright green color packaging with a picture of avocado. It contains one white sheet mask drenched in serum, and it is a single-use pouch. Its sleek packaging makes it so travel friendly. The sheet is soft and has the symbol of Sephora embossed on it throughout. Although the sheet is a bit bigger for me, it fits on my face quite well. Probably people with thin and long face may find the sheet even bigger. It is enriched with natural avocado oil made in France.
Texture: The texture of the serum in the sheet is neither liquidy nor sticky. The moment I took the soggy sheet out, I thought it would be messy to fix the sheet on the face. But that was not the case. The serum did not drip nor was the sheet slippery. This quality makes it one of the best on-the-go sheet masks. The leftover serum in the sachet could also be rubbed into the skin, thus there are no wastage. It smells like avocados and was amazing.
Performance: Sephora Avocado sheet mask is so easy to use. Just remove this sheet mask from the pouch, gently unfold it, simply place it right on your face, press it gently on to your skin so that it sticks on your entire face, sit down relaxingly, and allow all the moisture in the mask to sink into your skin. It easily adheres to my skin without stinging or irritating, and I can easily carry on with my daily chores. There are ample cutout space for the eyes and lips so no worries about those sensitive areas. I do feel a cooling sensation on my face the moment I slip it on my skin. Then the serum tends to get absorbed on my skin. I massage the excess serum in the sachet on my neck. The serum is a little sticky and made my skin feel a little warm and tingly. It works best when I allowed this mask to completely dry on my skin, meaning I did not remove the mask until all the moisture is gone.
When the mask is completely dry, I pulled off the mask to feel my skin being repaired. It also looked intensely nourished and soothed. My skin is getting dry as the climate is getting a bit colder, and this mask effectively restored the moisture back to the skin. This is a mask to be used in the evening and let the contents sink in overnight, meaning it is best for skin pampering, and not for skin prepping for any special occasion. The effect stays on for 3 days if my skin did not get exposed to the sun too long, which is indeed great for a sheet mask. Overall, it is a good sheet mask that delivers what it promises.
