I finally got my hands on this ever so popular mask- the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. My store is always going in and out of stock on this mask and I have so many clients coming in asking for it! Its so popular that there isn’t even a tester because people love to try and sample it in store. I happened to go to another location and luckily they got about 3 in their shipment. They didn’t have a tester either so she opened one up and let me try it out and I just put it in my basket because I was so curious on trying this popular mask.
On Sephora.com, this mask has 4 1/2 stars with about 100 reviews which I think is pretty good. It is currently in stock on the website as well.
What is it?
A skin-smoothing, radiance boosting, sleeping mask with hyaluronic acid for post facial results in one jar.
This luxuriously bouncy, breathable sleeping mask refreshingly hydrates, smooths, and perfects skin overnight with a revolutionary pillow-proof, transfer-proof formula. The oil-free, lightweight, glow-boosting hybrid is formulated with ultra-soothing watermelon extract, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and gentle AHAs that work while you sleep to tone and clarify roughened, dull complexions. AHAs smooth the surface of the skin by banishing dead, rough surface cells, clearing the path for ultra-effective, lasting hydration, while hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin for an incredibly nourished complexion. Skin is baby-soft and bright in the morning, effortlessly.
How to use:
- To use as a sleeping mask: use two scoops or a generous layer on skin as the final step of the evening routine. For drier skin types, layer an additional dime sized amount onto the skin. Pat gently until absorbed and wash thoroughly in the morning.
- To use as a wash-off mask (ideal for sensitive or stressed skin): use the spatula to scoop the face mask and spread a thick layer gently across the face from forehead to chin. Rinse with lukewarm water after 10 minutes.
This mask is $45 USD for 80 mL, which I guess the price if fair for the amount of product that you get but I will see how much I need for one application and how far you can stretch this jar.
A little more about the brand:
Glow Recipe features the best of Korean beauty, founded by beauty industry experts Sarah Lee and Christine Chang. Over the years, Sarah and Christine met with thousands of customers, and again and again in these conversations, found women whose skincare needs were not met and whose lives simply didn’t mesh with complicated, fussy routines. They tasked themselves with creating hybrid skincare that would simplify these needs while bringing to life everything they love about Korean skincare: innovation, excitement, and sensoriality. Glow Recipe skincare pairs the best Korean technologies with the results-forward backbone of Western beauty. The needs and know-how of two vastly different beauty cultures are at work in these products, creating a Korean-inspired routine that’s perfectly distilled.
When I tried it out in store, I really liked the way it smells its a sweet, subtle watermelon scent it really reminds me of Aqua Fresca (fruit water). I really also like the glass jar, the shade is unique and the glass is very heavy and sturdy. The outside of the box is white with minimal writing but the inside of the box is full of watermelons, so cute! It also comes with a little plastic spatula which is great because it keeps everything sanitary. The cast member scooped a little and put some on the back of my hand and that small amount went a very long way- but like it said it might be different on the face. I left it on for awhile and washed it off and my hand was pretty soft and refreshed.
I really purchased it because it is popular but when I started to read the claims and benefits I got suckered into it. I really do like hyaluronic acid in my skin care because it plumps my skin and keeps me looking youthful. I also like AHA because it helps with dull skin and helps exfoliate (I have been SOOO into exfoliating right now) and I’m wanting to add some good masks to my collection.
Have you tried this mask or heard of it? Let me know! Thanks for reading!
