Is Glowrecipe Hormonal Acne skin approved?

I was always a fan of Glowrecipe’s packaging and I had seen the episode when they appeared on Shark tank few years back. I was intrigued and wanted to try the brand but when it initially launched, the products were a little too pricey for me. I was willing to buy GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
the very first time and I know why I was gravitated towards this particular product. I was new to AHA/chemical exfoliants and this products sounded perfect to take a leap with it. This was very gentle on my sensitive Acne prone skin and didn’t irritate me too much. So I was happy with this one and I wanted to try more, guess we are never happy with no matter how much skincare right?😅 I went ahead and tried their GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist
and GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer
Amazing!!! I felt in love... The mist is super fine almost like water diffuser but of course with Hyaluronic acid and Watermelon extract in it. It gives an instant cooling effect so my sensitive, inflamed (with acne) skin used to love the feel of it. It is oil-water infused mist meaning it has oil on top of water hence you have to shake well before misting👍. I never disliked or put it off my favorites list ❤️ The Pink juice moisturizer is the perfect moisturu for my Oily and combination skin type. It takes care of moisturizing my Oily part as well as locks the moisture on the dryer one. Perfect watery-gel that smells fresh like watermelon slushee and feels cooling on face 👍 The last one to try out for me wasGLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask
And I’d be honest I didn’t like the formula. It’s thick, occlusive and rich cream one that’s but too heavy for my skin. This was the finish and texture, but I anyway give the product few chances to see if it’s really giving me any good results. It didn’t give the results I typically see with Retinols and Retinoids on my skin. Hence wasn’t my favorite in this line. ✨So far, I like the brand. The products are subtle, near to basic yet gently effective and perfect for people with sensitive skin types. ✨Although, heads up for the watermelon fragrance, if you’re sensitive to perfume in skincare, take a patch test. ✨It definitely was and is worth all the hype. The only downside is the price. It’s on high end side and I had a hard time purchasing these together 😅 What do you think of them?? Also dropping an illustration I’ve done for this image🤩❤️

Is Glow Recipe...the Right Recipe?
Now this brand can be considered luxury with relatively high price points. Much like other luxury brands, a lot of the formulations have high amounts of fragrance which can be very irritating. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner -Great source of proven hydrators and leaves a healthy glow -Antioxidant rich formula that is alcohol free. -Helps smooth texture. -Fragranced and the ph is outside of the ideal PHA and BHA needed to effectively exfoliate. GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser -Contains a good amount of antioxidants. -Effectively removes dirt and oil then rinses cleanly without leaving the feeling of tight skin. -Stings eyes when used to remove eye makeup. -Contains fragrance which is potentially irritating and product cannot fight acne as claimed. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask -Lotion-gel texture that absorbs quickly and includes skin soothing ingredients. -Includes sodium hyaluronate and antioxidant rich plants. -Fragranced and packaged in a jar which can compromise the ingredients. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask -Spreads easily and absorbs quickly which leaves skin hydrated. -Includes four forms of avocado which contains fatty acids and antioxidants. -Contains fragrance and is packaged in a jar which can put the ingredients at risk. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer -Lightweight, gel-like texture which is perfect for combination to oily skin. -Contains fragrance. -It also contains two kinds of antioxidant rich watermelon extracts. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask -Mask has very moisturizing and soothing ingredients. -It’s easy to use and isn’t overly saturated -Contains fragrance which can be irritating GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist -Fog-like mist settles lightly while refreshing both skin and makeup. -Includes hyaluronic acid and soothing extracts. -Contains fragrance. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop -Adds a sheer pink color that can be built up for more pop. -The balm doesn’t offer long lasting hydration compared to the best formulas of today. -Contains potentially irritating fragrance which can worsen dry lips. -Doesn’t exfoliate as well as claimed GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm -Lightweight cream that contains extracts rich with antioxidants. -Effectively removes makeup, dirt, oil, and spf. -Fragranced which can be irritating. Conclusion: This brand has too many products that have fragrance which can be very irritating to the skin. There are products with other issues such as packaging that can put the ingredients at risk and cause hygiene issues. Although I wouldn’t recommend this brand, the oil free moisturizer is actually pretty good.

Favorite Masks and textures for Maskne
I love textures.... I believe textures and feel of skincare product matter equally when it comes to using a product consistently. If you don't enjoy some textures and feel of one product you wouldn't use it for long time, leading it to not giving you any visible changes to skin. These are some of my favorite textures and masks /moisturizers for keeping Mask Acne (Maskne) at Bay! These are mostly pore refining, oil reducing and probiotic enriched products that will help your skin prevent acne caused by masks! Although, there's one ingredient missing in these is Salicylic acid (BHA) . Add BHA in your routine for clearing out congested pores and breakouts. GLAMGLOW - Instamud 60 Second Pore-Refining Treatment Mask teamí - Green Tea Blend Detox Mask GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask GLAMGLOW - Berryglow  Probiotic Recovery Face Mask GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask SUNDAY RILEY - Space Race Fight Acne, Oil & Pores Kit SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O.

Treatments from My skin cabinet
Here I’m showcasing some of my time and money worthy Treatments! I believe these are the tried and true ones for me with few daily staples! For ease of understanding and review I’m going to use the ‘Tags’ like ‘Daily staples’ and I’ll give stars ⭐️. I really think if you’re Hormonal Acne girl like me, this could be a helpful snap of my skin cabinet ❤️ So, with first tag - 🤩1. ‘Daily Staples’ - SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream This is rich and thick in consistency so if you’re oily try using it in Winters. I use it in morning routine. I think it’s effective and will give you more brightened skin. LeeGeeHaam Vita Propolis Ampoule This is new skincare find for me, AMAZING! In love this baby😍 Totally worth it! It gives glowing, brighter and tighter skin in consistent use! ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm This balm is Amazing! Works the best in removing every bit of makeup. The best part is it emulsified and washes well. Worth the hype! The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The best HA that worked for me. It didn’t irritate my Sensitive skin. It’s sticky so is the best under makeup. Love it 😍 🤩2. ‘Not so favorite Treatments’ - SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner Didn’t give any visible results. The smell is a bit too off for me. Positive is it’s hydrating. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask This held high hopes from me but unfortunately I didn’t find it Stunning. I believe there are other Retinols that work the best. This one is too occlusive for me, also it is a bit sticky and heavy unlike the Watermelon sleeping mask. The results weren’t amazing. Hence three stars from me. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads This is okay in my opinion. Nothing too great, also not bad. I didn’t see any results similar to The ordinary glycolic acid toner. So, I’m not very impressed with it but I believe for someone who has very sensitive skin, this could be a decent treatment. 🤩3. ‘Favorite Treatments’ - SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment This is AMAZING AMAZING! you will see the results in just one use. Gives glowing, brighter skin next morning. It helps with raised bumps and texture. Love it! TULA SKINCARE - Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner It works just as amazing as Good genes. Worth the money. It’s more like toner so it’s easy to use and also less irritating. THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum one of my favorite Retinols. Works great, formula is amazing. Not too thin but absorbs quickly. I feel the only downside is the size, it’s just very little for what we get from other brands. ELEMIS - Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads Works very well. Gives results in one use. Easy to use because of individual pads. Doesn’t feel heavy. Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum

Why You Being So 💦 melondramatic? 🍉
I joined the GLOW gang. I’m always really excited to use fruit powered skincare because it naturally offers you clean beauty for your skin. It’s k-beauty trending and definitely a craze that broke sales records for the company. Not only is the product good but the packaging is CUTE. 😻 I just love asian beauty products. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask Always read labels and instructions! Do a patch test before applying it over to see any adverse reactions. If it looks runny in the container, mix it for the jelly consistency for a minute. You can choose to wear this as a sleeping mask or wash off mask. 🧖‍♀️ I like to use this as a 🌚 sleeping mask 🌝 at least once a week for a boost to my skin. I layer it on after my night skincare routine. It comes with its own spoon. Packaging says to use two scoops or a generous amount and pat it in gently. I’d love to do this twice a week but it’s too much for me to use that often. The jar is $45 but then again no💰, no 🍯 for your face...🤣 Once it dries, it leaves you with a full on and literal glow. It’s amazing and I would keep rebuying this product. Possibly for life unless I find something better. Highly recommend to incorporate this in anyone’s skin regimen since it’s safe for all skin types. It targets so many things like acne, anti-aging, dullness and dark spots using ingredients like watermelon, hyaluronic acid, AHA and pumpkin extract (wot? Nothing wrong with pumpkin but it says 🍉 glow on the label). But. Ya. Ok. As. Long. As. It. Works. 👏 It’s just the perfect sleeping mask where you can prep your outfit the night before and wake up the next day to make a good long lasting impression. 🤩 YEAH!

Looks good but not hydrating enough for my skin
I received the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask for my birthday about a month ago. It definitely smells DIVINE and I’m a sucker for a good scent. The bottle also looks lovely on my bathroom cabinet. The product has a real gel-like consistency. Can be a bit difficult to extract a good amount from the bottle, I probably shouldn’t have thrown away the scoop applicator that came with it 🤦🏼‍♀️ The first time I used this mask I just put it on dry clean skin with no other product. I woke up with my skin feeling a bit tight and dry. So after that I used a face oil first and then followed up with a good hunk of the mask on my face and neck. This helped but am still waking up feeling like my skin is a bit tight. The website does say to use extra if you have dry skin but I feel like I’m already using a lot. The mask is supposed to be smoothing and hydrating but I haven’t really noticed any difference in my skin. I tend to find that my skin prefers creamier masks and creams to these gel-like ones anyway. Probably not going to buy again✖️

Is it actually worth it? GLOW RECIPE
GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser This product is great for a gentle cleanse to remove all the dirt and sebum on your face! It’s awesome for all skin types due to the hydrating hyaluronic acid and the gentle exfoliation from lactic and glycolic acid! My skin always feels so fresh post using this cleanser but I haven’t seen a massive change in my acne. I use this product in the mornings for a gentle cleanse whilst at night, I’ll use a double cleansing system with an oil based cleanser and a salicylic acid cleanser. Overall, I’m a fan! GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist This hydrating mist I feel is more of an add on luxury, it isn’t necessary. Although it does give extra hydration which can be great, it isn’t really something that you should go out of your way for, especially for the price. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner I have only had this toner for a couple of weeks, and I use it on and off, but it does feel really nice! It makes my skin really glowy, and i noticed that the inflammation in my skin has gone down quite a bit, but i haven’t noticed that much change in my skin long term. It’s definitely more for people with combination/oily skin because of the exfoliating properties. I will keep using this product to get my final opinion! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask This works wonders! It literally made my wrinkles less visible in the matter of one night and it feels so nice on the skin! I’m giving it four stars the only reason being is that it’s quite expensive for such a small pot. GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream I’ve only been using this product for a couple of days but wow, it’s amazing! It’s a thick cream but it feels so lightweight on your skin, so it’s good to not feel like your skin is drowning in moisturiser (I have oily skin). I love this product because it leaves my skin GLOWY and it has lightened my redness so much! I only got the smaller pot but I’ll probably end up getting the big one! GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop OH MY GOD I LIVE FOR THIS PRODUCT. First, it exfoliates your lips, and then, it turns into a moisturising balm and THEN, it turns into a pretty pink tint! My new go-to lip product!!! OVERALL: I support this brand! I stand with their ethics and philosophy and they support matters such as BLM. Their products are quite pricey but if you have the money, I’d say to go for it!

AM skincare routine for dry skin
After a couple minor adjustments recently I’ve settled into a solid morning routine which is working really well with my skin. My skin is mostly dry and I have fairly sensitive cheeks and eye areas. 1) CLEANSE — philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser with the #Remington - Reveal Facial Cleansing Brush[products]#[FiveStars] This is my all time favourite described as being a 3-in-1 cleanser, toner and makeup remover. Almost every cleanser I’d ever used beforehand made my skin tight and uncomfortable but the Philosophy Purity cleanser leaves my skin clean, feeling balanced and completely comfortable. I use the cleanser with a Remington facial and facial cleanser brush which is very gentle and has variable speeds and heads, I use the normal head on medium speed and it doesn’t aggravate the more sensitive areas of my face. I love using this brush as it feels like my skin has been cleaned thoroughly without being over exfoliated or stripped. 2) TREATMENT SERUM — The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The newest addition to my routine I’ve added this to help with clearing my pores to reduce their visibility and tackle some uneven skin tone post-partum. I apply one drop on each of my cheeks and one on my forehead then spread across my face using my fingers. My skin has been smoother, more even and brighter since using. 3) MOISTURISE — GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer I like using this as my day moisturiser because it’s light, hydrating and leaves my skin soft and glowing. I like that it’s a light cooling texture for starting the day with fresh, dewy skin rather than a heavy or oily feeling product. 4) EYES — philosophy - Purity Made Simple Hydra-Bounce Eye Gel Beautifully hydrating and a lovely gel consistency which absorbs quickly, however, it doesn’t help with my dark circles. 5) TINTED MOISTURISER — #Garnier - SkinActive Naturals BB Cream Light[products]#[FourStars] I use this to give my skin a sheer layer of coverage to even out my skin tone as I don’t wear foundation daily and to add an additional moisture boost. This alone wouldn’t be hydrating enough for my dry skin but when layered into my routine it fits really well for me. 6) SPF — CANMAKE - Mermaid Skin Gel UV Let me first start by saying I absolutely hate sunscreen because I hate both the texture and smell of them. Bad news when you live in a coastal city in Australia and sunscreen is a necessity 🙈 This SPF however is a beautiful lightweight Jbeauty sunscreen which has a watery gel-like texture, zero greasiness and no off putting smell at all. I use the clear version and it leaves no white caste on my skin or stickiness so once it’s dried leaves a perfect base for makeup.

Smell 10, performance 3 | 😢💔🍉
GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer Glow Recipe has blown up over the last few months and I was dying to get my hands on some of their products, specifically something from their line of watermelon skincare. I went to bed with their Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer on the last few nights and honestly haven’t been stoked on it...maybe I need a little more time! My first impressions: ✨ The texture of this moisturizer is really cool. It’s almost a cross between a gel and a super soft cream...I did really like this part of it. It absorbed well and didn’t leave me feeling sticky. ✨ I’ll admit it, this stuff smells amazing. I’m a sucker for watermelon flavoured and scented things, so this was sure to win me over in that department without much hassle. ✨ I didn’t really find it to do much for me. I liked the product as it is, but it really didn’t transform my face or hydrate it in a way that I’ve never seen before. Tbh, just can’t understand the hype for this specific product. ✨ I DO love that Glow Recipe is a clean brand, and is free of many filler ingredients that are bad for your skin. They’re vegan and cruelty-free, as well, which gets bonus points for me despite not loving the product overall. I was disappointed by this moisturizer, but that won’t stop me from trying some more of their line. I’m hopeful about the rest of their products and looking forward to figuring out why so many of you love them! 💘 Did you like this product or find it a little lacklustre as well? Tell me below and let me know if there are some specific products by GR that I need to get! 🥳

I’m so excited because today is Friday which means I turn 24 tomorrow!! I can’t wait to spend the weekend hiking with my man, but today is going by too slow. 😩 So in the mean time, here’s a pretty green flatlay and some products I want to give some flash impressions on. ☺️👇🏻 💚 Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask was one of my first mask purchases and will always have a special place in my heart. The cooling sensation and the soft skin I have after use never does me any wrong! 💚 Laneige Glowy Lip Balm in Pear is delicious and hydrating, I use it every morning. It isn’t sticky which is perfect for me since I wear a mask all day at work. 💚 Osea Sea Minerals Mist is a great refresher if my skin needs some hydration in a pinch! 💚 Farmacy Daily Greens is great for my acne prone skin since it’s a gel moisturizer. See my post from July 7th for more! 💚 Farmacy Deep Sweep hasn’t even been opened yet. Someone needs to start using up their toners before they open it! 😂 💚 Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is my OG sleeping mask that never fails to give me a clear and glowing complexion! 💚 Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask also hasn’t been opened yet. What are you most looking forward to this weekend?

First Laneige product which impressed me
First Laneige product which impressed me
Product claims: An overnight replenishing mask that delivers intense moisture to help soothe redness and strengthen the skin barrier for healthier, less stressed skin. Product target concerns: redness and dryness My experience: let me just tell you I never ever understood the hype behind laneige products because none of them worked for my skin. I had no expectations for this mask but OMG!! I got a deluxe size with one of my Sephora purchases and I wanted to pick up the full size only after one application! It’s so lightweight, so soothing, softening and I saw a lot of improvement in my skin redness. Also I used it for the the first time when I had an allergic reaction and I remember how my skin was so parched that night. It reduced my inflammation and really hydrated my skin. I use it twice a week and the consistency plus texture is really similar to summer fridays jet lag mask. Do I recommend this? Yes absolutely!! It’s an amazing dupe for SF jet lag Price: $34 for 2.0 oz

This was my first big skincare splurge EVER and I went with a cruelty free brand who I've heard raved about all over Instagram! This is the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask for 48 dollars. Don't be fooled by the picture this is actually quite a sizable amount, especially because you need so little at a time! The mask is packed with skin loving oils and hydrating ingredients to leave you with glowing morning skin. It smells heavenly and not sickly sweet, and it does dissipate after application. The texture is creamy and it doesn't feel heavy on my dry skin. It's definitely more for dry/normal skin as I think the oils would be too much for combo/oily skin! I was worried this product would break me out because I have sensitive skin but it is gentle and has not broken me out at all in the nearly 2 months I've been using it. Would I repurchase? Definitely! I'm going to make room in my budget for it 😂 If there are any drugstore dupes please let me know because I love a good deal lol

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask
This is why you should by trial size first!
This is why you should by trial size first!
So I do this thing in order to try a bunch of different products and find the ones I love. I buy TRIAL SIZE FIRST! I can spend sooooo much money on skincare when I know I shouldn’t so I started trying the mini of products which financially speaking isn’t maybe the most “bang for your buck” but at least I spend $12 on something and not $38 before I find out I don’t really like it. Regardless, I buy trial size to determine if something is worth the splurge or not and then I am exposed to a bunch of new options to upgrade my skincare. I have wanted to try the OLEHENRIKSEN brand for a while and so when I saw the balance mini kit on sale I jumped on it. (Like literally jumped in the air when I received the package). So here is my honest opinion of these 4 products: OLE HENRIKSEN - Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub let’s start on a high note. LOVED this scrub. Everything in this collection has menthol-y feel which is intensified if you do this in the shower which is usually how I do scrubs. (My routine is to exfoliate with a scrub whenever I wash my hair - every other day or so). My pores have never felt soooooo clear. It really felt like a sauna for my skin. Plus, my boyfriend (who I force to do skincare) said he felt like he was breaking out by his nose so I put this scrub on him and the pimple disappeared! 🥳 OLE HENRIKSEN - Balancing Force Oil Control Toner on to the toner. Gotta say, I didn’t love it. It makes my skin feel dry and tight and it burns a little bit. I don’t have particularly sensitive skin so I can imagine that it’s all the worse for those who do. I will say that my forehead and nose can get oily in the summer and that was taken care of with this toner. But overall, would not recommend. OLE HENRIKSEN - Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator NOPE! Highly disliked this. One could even say hated. Does not provide moisture and it felt like it wasn’t adding anything to my skin just taking away. My face is not that oily so I think it’s just not the right moisturizer for me. If you know anything about me, it’s that I love moisturizer. OLE HENRIKSEN - Cold Plunge Pore Mask I liked but I didn’t love this mask. This was the product that I bought this set for and while I do like it, I’m not sure I would give it the same rave reviews that others have given. It applies very smoothly and has a cooling sensation when you are wearing it. The color is really pretty (see picture!) but that’s not a reason to buy a mask. Also: this set is supposed to shrink pores and I don’t really find that it did that for me but maybe it just takes a little more time. Overall, this was super surprising to me. I didn’t think I would love the scrub as much as I did and dislike the other things as much as I did. I will definitely be buying the full size of the scrub but jury’s still out on the mask.
