Happy Lunar New Year!

Avocados are everywhere. Lately, it seems we can’t get enough of the peculiar green fruit. First, people started blending them into their milkshakes, and then mashing them up to spread onto toast. Now, it seems avocados are getting roped into everything else, from inspiring plushie designs to being a key ingredient in beauty products (not that we’re complaining).

After all, this superfood is bursting with antioxidants and nutrients such as magnesium, vitamin E, potassium and fibre, to name a few. It certainly helps that they taste good in almost everything too, from salads to ice cream. And once there’s anything healthy out there for mass consumption, you know it’s only a matter of time before the beauty industry sinks its teeth into them.

Here are 11 avocado-themed beauty products you’ll want to pick up.

1. BH Cosmetics Avocado Toast Eyeshadow Palette

Avocado Themed Beauty Products Avocado Toast Shadow Palette

You read that first point right, we’re kicking off this list with a very fascinating eyeshadow palette inspired by none other than the famous avocado toast dish. This vegan and cruelty-free BH Cosmetics Avocado Toast Shadow Palette is a 16-shade palette with a long-lasting formula. Plus, it comes equipped with amusing shade names such as “avocuddle” and “guac” that might get you feeling a little “extra”.

Nevertheless, we have to admit that these earthy tones are pretty flattering, and could definitely have you serving some eye-catching looks at any formal event.

Available on Beauty Bay for S$23.25.

2. Glow Recipe Avocado Sleeping Mask

Avocado Themed Beauty Products Glow Recipe

K-beauty inspired brand Glow Recipe is fondly known for their fruit-based skincare line, geared towards bringing out a radiant complexion in its users. Naturally, the same applies to their Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask.

Use it as a wash-off after a quick facial if you’re short on time. Alternatively, for longer, deeper penetration, you can leave this creamy mask on overnight and wake up feeling fresh, rejuvenated and ready to start your day with smooth and hydrated skin!

Retails for S$75 on Sephora.

3. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Avocado Themed Beauty Products Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment

If you’ve always feared the dreaded crow’s feet and developing premature eye wrinkles, being consistent with your eye cream is the way to go. We recommend Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment, not only because it has avocados in them, but because the reviews are glowing!

This non-greasy cream stays in place after you’ve applied it on and helps reduce eye puffiness, as well as keeps your eye area bright and refreshed. It’s even blended with shea butter for an extra moisturising effect.

Retails for S$53 on Kiehl’s.

4. Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash Conditioner

Avocado Themed Beauty Products Briogeo

Get those luscious, shiny locks with Briogeo’s Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash Conditioner, suitable for dry, normal and oily hair types. Massage this in to transform your hair from flat and dull to full and voluminous!

Funnily, the avocado and quinoa mix in this product brings to mind the contents of a nutritious grain bowl. The combination shouldn’t really come as a surprise, however, considering how quinoa is yet another superfood that’s high in protein and fibre!

5. BeautyPRO Natura Avocado Infused Sheet Mask

Avocado Themed Beauty Products Beauty Pro

Priced at S$9.73, this Natura Avocado Infused Sheet Mask By BeautyPro doesn’t come cheap. However, it does include several plus points you can’t find in your average face mask. For starters, this sheet mask is biodegradable and made from natural bamboo fibres, which reduce the chances of skin irritation. It’s also made from 100% plant-based ingredients, with its avocados being specially sourced from New Zealand.

Ultimately, this product contains anti-ageing, hydrating, and protective properties that repair and increase the elasticity of your skin. So if you ask us, choosing this over a S$2 face mask will likely give you more bang for your buck.
