ITEM OF THE WEEK: Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask | STAINED COUTURE

I feel myself sliding down a rabbit hole of sleeping face masks, but I’m okay. Actually, they became really clutch during the holidays. They were great to use on those cold, dry nights when my skin needed extra attention, but I didn’t have the time nor energy. Instead, I would slather on a soothing, hydrating mask, and then peacefully wake up to soft, supple skin. This Avocado Melt Sleeping mask from Glow Recipe is a new addition to my “Products that help me wake-up with glowing skin”. However, it’s been great and so worthy of being my favorite item of the week. Keep reading to see why.

If you have been one of the few people who has seen me the last couple of weeks with makeup up, I was probably wearing a red lip. After Thanksgiving, when everyone else is pulling out all of their holiday decor, I’m pulling out mine; red lips products.
