This is a mask that I was just curious to buy due to its very low price, but at the same time big volume, 170gr. The ingredients contain various oils such as of soybean, cottonseed oil, olive fruit and leaf oil, avocado, chamomile and many other natural extracts. It does have some stearyl alcohol, but I guess this has the purpose to clean from impurities, which is also important for problematic skin.
The texture is a pretty thick cream of green-olive color. It is a mask, so the thickness makes it more difficult to spread, but you’ll get used to it, since you have to apply a thicker layer anyway. Don’t forget to wash it away after 30 min or in the morning, if you leave it overnight. It is not a regular cream that you can put your make up on.
On my oily skin, I was expecting it to leave a greasy layer. In practise the effect was totally different. It takes away the shine of the skin and makes it more matte, which I like a lot. I wouldn’t call it super moisturising mask, for this purpose I usually use oils directly. But as hydrating it is fine. I think it does clean the skin from impurities, calms and soothes the pores.

I think it should work on all skin types. I wasn’t amazed by it, since it is very cheap anyway. I was pleasantly surprised by the mattefying effect and by the size of it.
It is also cruelty-free and the brand Queen Helene exists since 1930, as claimed on the package. I know that there is an avocado- grapefruit mask as well and I will definitely try it next time.
