Fave or meh?: Glow Recipe
Glow recipe is a clean beauty brand, which uses natural ingredients, cruelty free and free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates and also take care of the environment. It has simple and very beautiful packaging. I have used some of their products and I think some are worth it and others not so much. GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser MEH Price: $10 for 30 ml. Texture: lightweight gel. Scent: fruity floral. It’s a gentle cleanser and deep clarifying mask that cleanses the skin without drying it, helps minimize pores and combat blemishes and breakouts. Leaves skin soft, fresh and clean. It can be used as a cleanser or as a mask (with dry skin apply a generous layer and leave it for 5 minutes). It is not my favorite cleanser, but the mini is a good option to take on the road. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist FAVE Price: $28 for 75 ml. Texture: ultra fine mist. Scent: watermelon. I love the smell of this mist, it is light and refreshing. Leaves my skin feeling so hydrated but not sticky. I have tried many, even with the same ingredient, but this one made the difference since it doesn’t cause irritation or burning. Softens, refreshes and brightens the skin leaving natural dewy glow. It is definitely a product that I would buy again. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer MEH Price: $39 for 60 ml. Texture: lightweight gel. Scent: watermelon. It is a light moisturizer, formulated with watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid and peony and jasmine to boost radiance and glow. It absorbs quickly and gives long-lasting hydration, smells wonderful and doesn’t irritate my skin. I think it is an excellent choice for combination skin. It’s good but not my favorite. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask MEH Price: $42 for 15 ml. Texture: rich cream. Scent: fruity. Use slow-release encapsulated retinol to minimize the risk of irritation, it also contains niacinamide and squalane. I didn’t notice a change in dark circles, but it did improve hydration and loss of firmness. This sample lasted approximately 3 months, I would not buy the full size for the price and few results. GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream FAVE Price: $39 for 50 ml. Texture: lightweight cream. Scent: banana. It’s a lightweight moisturizer that doesn’t clog pores that hydrates and calms the skin. I don't usually use cream, but there are occasions in the year when my skin gets a little dry, so I decided to try it. It smells like a banana candy (laffy taffy), it is very lightweight but hydrates very well. My dryness disappeared from the first application, a little goes a long way, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling. I would repurchase. My skin type: combination. Skin concern: dullness, dry skin, pores, fine lines.
