      My skin feels soft and moisturized. I did have to wash it very well last night, and again this morning after using the mask as my face was very moisturized, but I don't seem to be experiencing any further oily issues. I have an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, so maybe in the future I'll just use it on my cheeks, although, it did seem that it had pulled some blackheads on my nose to the surface, so maybe I *should* use it all over my face... My (3 y/o) son told me to "go wash your face right now" when he saw this on my face (very confusing for him, since I let him *eat* some of the avocado before I mashed it). Then he told my husband that I had "broccoli on my face". I laughed at all that! Great mask, Rita! :-)

      I'm wearing this mask right now, and so far I love it. I'm 16 and I've never had a problem with acne, a zit here, a black head there, but nothing major. Recently i've been getting alot of blackheads on my nose and my pores are really clogged, also I've been getting really really dry skin.(probably the summer heat) This mask feels so amazing. Really silky and smooth and it doesn't call for strange ingredients. Every homemade facial mask that I make, I always open up a tea bag and mix the raw tea in. (it smells great and the antioxidants are good too) (I normally use green tea, but I was out so I used apricot(yummy)) I also added about 3teaspoons of honey because honey is so good for your skin. Loving this and will never try another mask again, thanks Rita!

      Brilliant !! blending the oil and avocado in a hand held processor made a great paste... It made masses, (or was that the size of my avocado?)more than I needed for one application so I used for several days in a row, keeping leftovers in a tightly scealed tupperware container until all was used. Yes, it did go a bit brown but a good mix up with a spoon and it was great again. Sorry that I don 't have the guts to upload a photo of it on my face but I can tell you that my skin loves you !!! I'm recovering from an operation, have a baby who likes eating in the wee hours of the night and this was exactly what I needed so that MiL commented " you look great" rather than "I can see you are tired dear". My skin is glowing, feels smooth and best of all the "T" section which is oily and the rest which is drier just have lost the red-ish tired look and the blemishes are GONE !!! clean clean clean !!! wonderful. Cheap when avocados are in season, and for me, worth splashing out for if they weren't... a brilliant recipe well worth a wonderful 5 stars! Thanks !!!
