And I’m back with my Product Pick of the Month, and this month it goes to the Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask...
Why? Because I was so curious with this one, I kept on seeing it pop up on my feeds whether that be instagram or facebook, and my curiosity got the better of me, and along came the postman with his usual day deliveries…. (Seriously the dude had got to stop coming over!)
A BIT about the Glow recipe Watermelon first:
Growing up in Korea, our grandmothers used to rub watermelon rind on our skin in the summer to soothe and cool heat rash and irritationSarah & Christine, Co Founders
It is claimed that this mask moisturises, plumps, soothes, and also helps in getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles and aids in treating pores.
What’s in it?
- Hyaluronic QAcid (My Holy Grail for skincare)
- AHA (great for dead skin and dark spots)
- Pumpkin Extract (repairs the skin)
- Pomegranate (vitamin A, C and E for vibrancy)
- Banana (hydrating)
- Seaweed (Skin repair)
- Watermelon (obviously!)
I would say that this is quite the perfect combination wouldn’t you?
How to use The Glow Recipe Watermelon Mask:
Use the Glow Recipe Watermelon As a Sleeping Mask….
….which is what I use it as and I love it, I scoop it up and I plaster a huge amount on my face (this is the last stage of my night time routine) and I try so much not to eat it as it smells so out of this world, like a watermelon dessert…. OMG! (Can someone make me some!! its lush!) and I leave it on all night. Its so lightweight in texture and so breathable, you can’t feel it on your face unless you touch it. (on touch it can be quite sticky, but I am not too fussed over that)
In the morning whilst in the shower I literally smooth it off and it makes my skin feel so soft, supple and hydrated.
Use the Glow Recipe Watermelon mask Before Makeup…..
….If you need a quick flash of hydration before make up, this is a gem, before you apply make up, put on a thin layer for 10 minutes, and then wash off. See the change on application of makeup. It really gives a glow.
….as a Quick Freshen Up….
….Do you sometimes wake up and feel exhausted? Yup that’s me! and this really helps to give the wake up feeling, I put on a small layer after the shower and carry on with my day, once I’m ready then I wash off, its an instant refresh!
…. and Fridge It…
….With my hormones and the constant staying in, my face flushes are more frequent than ever- and this product from the fridge nice and cold helps soothe my face instantly, also the smell! OMG that is something I can’t get over! seriously it should be edible!
I would recommend this product with a Big YES, my curiosity is really getting the better of me and now I am looking at all the other watermelon glow recipe products…. Well why not if it’s going to be this good right?
You can find Glow Recipe products at Cult Beauty, Sephora or online on the Glow recipe website itself. It is on the pricier side for sleeping masks at £20 for a 30 ml bottle. It is not something I use daily, rather I use it on the days of when I pamper myself therefore making it a luxury treat for myself.
Have you tried any Glow Recipe products yourself? and what did you think of them?
Love and Regards
