All thanks to the avocado and hemp seed oil.
There’s so much to love about winter: buying new coats, making your home feel extra cozy, seeing the first snow. However, cold winter weather can also cause dry, irritated skin, no matter how dedicated you are to your skincare routine. When your go-to moisturizer isn’t enough, it’s time to bring in reinforcements, and by that we mean overnight face masks.
Intrigued by its name and desperate for some serious hydration, I recently gave the Avocado Hemp Butter Sleek Mask a try, and it did not disappoint. The mask is from Walmart’s own clean beauty brand, aptly called Cleen Beauty, and as you might have guessed, it’s a vegan, cruelty-free product formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, or dyes. Instead, the mask contains natural ingredients like avocado oil, lavender extract, and cannabis sativa seed oil.
A quick explainer for anyone who did a double take after reading the words “cannabis” and “sativa”: Cannabis sativa seed oil comes from the hemp plant and doesn’t contain any CBD (the non-psychoactive cannabidiol that’s extracted from the cannabis plant) or THC (the main active ingredient in marijuana that will actually get you high). Otherwise known as hemp seed oil, this ingredient is packed with fatty acids, making it a powerful natural moisturizer for the skin.
It works together with vitamin E-rich avocado oil and soothing floral extracts in this dermatologist-tested mask to nourish and brighten skin as you sleep. All you have to do is apply a thin layer every other night and rinse your face with warm water in the morning.
And if the thought of slathering on a goopy moisturizer before bed makes you worry about greasy residue left behind on your pillow the next day, fret not: This overnight mask does no such thing. In fact, after trying it out for myself, my pillow showed no signs of skincare remnants in the morning, and my face felt refreshed.
Walmart shoppers shared similar sentiments in customer reviews online. They’ve awarded the product 4.7 out of five stars and say it’s comfortable to sleep in, smells good, and leaves skin feeling hydrated.
If your skin is begging you for some extra TLC, consider buying this natural overnight face mask from Walmart.
