New Year, New Skincare with Glow Recipe

Updated: 3 days ago

Glow Recipe have definitely taken the skincare industry by storm, not only for their efficacious skincare innovations, but that shelfie-worthy packaging we just can’t get enough of.

Formulated with the highest quality ingredients, including antioxidant-rich fruit extracts with clinically proven actives, Glow Recipe focus on making fruit-forward products for glowing skin. Transparency is key for GR, providing full ingredient lists for their clean, vegan and cruelty-free products.

Glow Recipe is built on the philosophy of taking it day by day, skin by skin. They know as a brand that skin changes daily and want to empower us to love and treat our skin based on its ever-changing needs (because that’s life!) …

Desperate to incorporate these gorgeous products into my current routine, I couldn’t wait to try their best sellers for myself to see if they really live up to the cult hype… With the selection of products we put to the test, I’ve curated a routine to take us into 2022 glowing:

Watermelon Sleeping Mask

The Scent: Fresh, fruit watermelon The Texture: Bouncy, watery gel Makes Skin Feel: Hydrated, radiant and petal soft Makes Skin Look: Bright and glowy Key Ingredients: Watermelon, Hyaluronic Acid, AHA, Pumpkin Extract

My Verdict: There’s a reason this mask is award-winning… Ideal for winter skin rescue, this soothing and hydrating mask will tackle all your dry skin concerns.

Watermelon PHA + BHA Toner

The Scent: Herbal with a fruity finish and a hint of cucumber The Texture: Springy, bouncy liquid Makes Skin Feel: Hydrated, smooth and soothed Makes Skin Look: Supple and glowy Key Ingredients: Watermelon, Cactus Water, PHA, BHA, Hyaluronic Acid, Tea Tree Extract, Cucumber

My Verdict: This exfoliating toner is good for sensitive skin, whilst formulated with a more gentle acid (PHA), leaving the skin with a radiant glow and refreshes a congested complexion.

Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid

The Scent: A fresh, sweet, berry-like scent as juicy as the fruit itself The Texture: A thin, lightweight water-like gel Makes Skin Feel: Plump, hydrated and bouncy Makes Skin Look: Plump, glowy, awake, youthful Key Ingredients: Plum (3 types), Hyaluronic Acid (5 weights), Vegan Collagen & Silk Protein, Vitamin B5

My Verdict: I LOVE that this product has multiple molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to deeply penetrate the skin. A light, refreshing hyaluronic acid serum that will definitely be staying in my routine for the foreseeable future.

Avocado Ceramide Recovery Serum

The Scent: Soothing and fresh with a hint of green tea and aloe The Texture: Lightweight and milky Makes Skin Feel: Soft, soothed and calm Makes Skin Look: Hydrated and less red from irritation Key Ingredients: Avocado Butter + Extract, Ceramide-5, Allantoin, Rice Milk

My Verdict: This product is perfect for those with acne-prone skin. The gentle formula helps with any irritation, whilst soothing the skin. It really has become a go-to for skin recovery!

Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum

The Scent: Fresh, fruity guava The Texture: Silky, non-sticky water-gel texture Makes Skin Feel: Smooth & hydrated Makes Skin Look: Bright, glowy and even Key Ingredients: 5 forms of Vitamin C, Guava Seed Oil & Extract, Tranexamic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Vitamin E

My Verdict: This formula absorbs quickly into the skin and is not sticky, leaving you with a good base to work on. The ingredients are effective in targeting post-acne marks and evens out complexion. I’m excited to see the long-term effects this product has on my skin!

Watermelon Niacinamide Dew Drops

The Scent: A refreshing, fruity watermelon scent that’s as juicy as it sounds The Texture: A thin, lightweight gel Makes Skin Feel: Hydrated and smooth Makes Skin Look: Illuminated, bright and hydrated Key Ingredients: Watermelon, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Moringa Seed Oil

My Verdict: A definite competitor to the Glossier Super Dew, but taken to another level. Formulated with Niacinamide, a cult-favourite ingredient, these dew drops give you a natural glow-from-within, helping to tackle winter-dullness within the skin.

Watermelon Glow Pink Juice

The Scent: Fresh, fruity watermelon The Texture: Cooling gel-emulsion Makes Skin Feel: Soft, smooth and bouncy Makes Skin Look: Plump, juicy and hydrated Key Ingredients: Watermelon, Hyaluronic Acid, Jasmine & Peony Extract

My Verdict: This juice is a great toner to give your skin some extra hydration. The non-gresy formula absorbs into skin quickly and isn’t heavy, allowing you to top up when necessary!
