Watermelon sleeping mask

Sweet dreams are made with Glow Recipe's overnight Watermelon Mask. As one of the OG's from the brand, this sleeping mask was inspired by the founders' beauty routines during childhood, when applying watermelon rinds on heat rashes helped soothe the effect.

Watermelon has 92 percent water content and is not very acidic, so it works as a great hydration booster for skin all year round. This luxe pick is loaded with amino-acid-rich watermelon extract, face-friendly acids like Hyaluronic and AHA's to exfoliate away your skin at night. Wake up with your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.

Member @gigisum says, “I use it every night and the next morning I wake up to a smooth and fresh face, honestly all products from Glow recipe are amazing. Vegan and cruelty free obviously.”

Pineapple C Bright Serum

Ask any beauty expert about must-have vitamins for the skin, and Vitamin C is the most common answer. Whether treating uneven skin tones or brightening skin complexion -- these products can work their magic.

Glow Recipe's Pineapple C-Bright serum is formulated with 22 percent real pineapple juice, making it a potent source of natural vitamin C. This tropical fruit also contains Bromelain enzyme, an antioxidant that helps to slough off dead skin cells. Additionally, this lightweight serum is packed with three kinds of vitamin C. Pro tip: For the ultimate skin protection, remember to use SPF too.

Member @mallory17 says, “This smells great and feels awesome on my skin. It’s already doing a great job of lightening my sun spots. Make sure to use sunscreen during the day.”

Watermelon Glow Toner

So, how does a face toner work? Toners act as a primer for your skincare routine. It sounds like a skippable step, but they are usually chock full of ingredients to hydrate your skin, further allowing other products to absorb faster.

This watermelon toner has all the healthy hydroxy acids your skin will love, including AHA and BHA. Both these pore actives are natural exfoliators that remove dead skin cells. @fourdollars reviews saying, "Skin doesn't feel astringent or dry despite the BHA, probably because of the hydrating hyaluronic acid." Plus, ingredients like cactus water, cucumber, and tea tree extract give the product its bouncy and cooling texture.

If you have sensitive skin, your best bet is a non-comedogenic (reduces pore-clogging) and non-acnegenic (reduces acne) moisturizer. Luckily, Glow Recipe's Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream ticks both boxes. The signature ingredient is banana which helps to repair and hydrate the skin. Plus, it's also infused with ingredients like chia seed, magnesium, turmeric, and Cica (an antioxidant) that'll leave your skin feeling luxuriously soft.

Member @alexrae says, “This moisturizer is soothing, hydrating, non-irritating, and gives me a soft glow. A little goes a long way. Oh and it smells incredible.”

This serum has two unique ingredients, vegan collagen and silk protein. For starters, collagen helps skin cells to repair themselves and keeps skin looking youthful. Silk protein, on the other hand, tightens and firms the skin. The formula uses a blend of multi-weight Hyaluronic acid and three antioxidant-rich plums that work together to brighten your skin tone. @mallory17 says, “it smells nice and really moisturizes my skin. I put it on before bed and wake up with softer, smoother skin.”
