The health benefits of avocado are legendary, yet not many people know that the fruit also has remarkable skincare properties as a result of its moisturizing healthy fats and vitamins. Thankfully, top beauty brands have picked up on this fact and now we can enjoy avocado in our skincare products as well as on our toast.
The must-try avocado beauty products for 2019 include Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, a best-selling eye cream that features amazing hydrating ingredients such as avocado oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter. Just a dab of this rich moisturizer around the eyes minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. According to one consumer, "My dry skin has gotten so out of hand this year and I thought to finally buy my first eye cream and I'm glad it was this one. It focuses on dryness (which it does a fantastic job at moisturizing) but I've noticed the dark circles under my eyes lightening up when I use this product." Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is available online at Sephora for $30.

“A non-greasy, moisturizing formula for everyone! I love how it its texture is so creamy, which immediately feels like "burst of moisture" as you put it on. It's difficult to describe with words, but it literally feels like you are putting on concentrated water. Doesn't not smudge my gel eye liner. Highly recommend it!” – #Kiehls Customer on kiehls.com 🥑 #EyeCream #Avocado
Next up, the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask includes avocado and glacier water that provide intense hydration while you sleep, leaving your skin moisturized for up to 72 hours. The mask features avocado, Swiss glacier water, and hyaluronic acid that soothes and nourishes dry skin. "Use this every night. The smell is amazing and a little goes a long way. I got the travel size and it lasted soooooo long. Nothing hydrates my skin like this does. Absolutely in love. My skin type is very dry and sensitive," says one consumer. The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is available online at Sephora for $26.
Another favorite is the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Bendy Avocado Concealer, which provides a lightweight, luminous finish with medium coverage. Hydrating and natural, the concealer contains hydrating avocado oil, vitamin E, mushroom extract and caffeine. This vegan and cruelty-free product also contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. "An awesome product for day to day use. Literally blends into the skin, has a natural finish and doesn't settle into fine lines. It stands true to its claim!" writes one shopper. First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Bendy Avocado Concealer is available online at Sephora for $22.
Also, the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick is long-lasting and hydrating thanks to its combination of avocado oil, vitamin E, resins and jellifying agents that leaves lips pigmented and smooth. "I purchased marvelous mauve and could not be happier. I get compliments each time I wear it. I also bought the KVD lip stain and to be honest, I like this one better. It is matte, but it did not dry out my lips and it wore nicely. I did reapply after, but that was all I needed to do to maintain it until I took my makeup off prior to bed," one consumer says. The Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick is available in numerous shades online at Sephora for $14.
Finally, Dr. Teal's Ultra Moisturizing Mineral Soak, which contains avocado oil and mineral salts, moisturizes and soothes sore muscles. By adding the soak to a bath, you can enjoy full-body hydration for smooth, supple skin. "This stuff is great. The scent is great and I feel like I'm covered in moisturizer when I get out of the bath. It's great stuff," says one shopper. Dr. Teal's Ultra Moisturizing Mineral Soak is available online at Amazon for $10.79.
