It is so worth the $36 because it comes with 3oz which is a pretty good amount for this amazing mask! 🧚🏼which I would prefer- I think I prefer the Olehenrikson cold plunge pore mask over the wander beauty peel mask because the glow recipe watermelon sleeping mask because it did a way better job at refining the look of my pores where I didn’t see much of a difference in my pores the morning after using the watermelon sleeping mask! The glow recipe sleeping mask is way better at hydrating the skin and soothing it! OLE HENRIKSEN - Cold Plunge Pore Mask

Cooling mask ❄️
❄️Cold plunge mask is SOO cooling! It’s a detoxing cooling clay mask that helps reduce the appearance of pores and soothe skin texture. This mask works for all skin type, but I would say if you’re on the sensitive side I’d use this once a week, it can be a bit strong. It helps reduce oils which is perfect for me! It contains AHA and BHA. ❄️I try and use this about once a week and I keep my routine pretty simple. I also like to use a very good moisturizer after. This mask was inspired by the Cold Plunge part of the Scandinavian sauna cycles. I was so curious to try this mask as soon as I saw it! Also, the color is a beautiful baby blue! I’ve been loving it!

Say bye to large pores
Ole Henriksen’s Cold Plunge Pore Mask works wonders for my pores. I’ve always had huge, visible pores and I’m glad I finally found a product that makes them appear smaller. I use this mask 2-3 times a week and leave it on for about 15 minutes each time. My skin feels so refreshed and my pores are less noticeable after each use. I recommend using a serum or moisturizer with spf after immediately after the mask because it contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Key Ingredients that make this product top-tier: ￼￼￼Clay-to clean your pores ￼￼￼￼￼Snow lotus and alpine willowherb extracts- helps nourish the skin with its antioxidants ￼￼￼￼￼Green Fusion Complex- a blend of green tea, eucalyptus, alge (kelp) and Irish moss extracts to absorb oil and refine pores ￼￼￼￼￼Lactic acid (AHA) and salicylic acid (BHA)- removes dead skin that clogs pores Let me know your experience with the Cold Plunge Pore mask in the comments or if you plan on trying the mask!

Brand Breakdown: Glow Recipe
Hey y’all! In today’s Brand Breakdown, we’re talking about Glow Recipe. Glow recipe was founded in 2014 bu Christine Chang, and Sarah Lee, two Korean Americans. Today I’ll be breaking down the ingredients of 4 of their most popular products. Let’s start with the GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask with is $42 for .5 fl oz. This face mask features retinol as the title suggests, and it also has avocado oil and extract, as well as coffeeberry. Avocado oil and extract have Vitamin E and C, and are also nourishing. Coffeeberry, which is the seed of a coffee plant, has a lot of antioxidants. It also has glycerin and squalane which are hydrating, as well as Nicinamide, Hylaronic acid, and aloe vera gel. I will mention that this product has a lot of potentially irritating extracts as well as fragrance. Next is one of their most popular products, the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask which is $45 for 2.7 fl oz. This mask has has 2 main ingredients. Watermelon extract, and Hylaronic acid. By this point y’all know all about Hylaronic acid (and if you don’t, check out my Skincare Acid Cheat Sheet), so let’s talk about watermelon extract. If you read my Brand Breakdown on Clean & Clear, you’ll know that watermelon extract is an amazing ingredient, and watermelon juice isn’t. Luckily, in this product it’s watermelon extract, which is very soothing and hydrating. This product also has glycerin and Glycolic acid in it. It does however have a lot of fragrance, irritating extracts, and alcohol. Next up is the #GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Makeup Remover[products]#[ThreeStars] with is $32 for 3.4 fl oz. Supposedly the main draws of this product are papaya enzymes, papaya seed oil, and blueberry extract. Now blueberry extract and papaya seed oil are not very researched ingredients that have only minimal effects on the skin. Papaya enzymes are mildly exfoliating, but don’t do much else. The cleansing balm is pretty basic other than this. And finally is the #GLOW RECIPE - Pineapple Vitamin C Serum[products]#[TwoStars] which is $49 for 1 fl oz. The marketing for this product is around its pineapple juice and Vitamin C. This product is super lacking for the price. The same way watermelon juice is less good for your skin than watermelon extract (because it’s diluted), pineapple juice is less effective than pineapple extract. Other than that, this product has Vitamin C which is great but very mainstream. This product also has fragrance. Those are all the products I have for today. I would say they got gradually worse as we went on, which I didn’t even do on purpose. This brand is quite expensive for it’s actual formulations, and I think there are better brands that are cheaper. If you can splurge, splurge on Youth to the People instead. Please cheer for this post, follow me for similar content, and comment below your favorite Youth to the People product. -Mae
Cherie Made Me But It! 🍒 ✨🍉
Hi Cherie Fam 🍒 I came across @Mallory‘s post regarding the avocado sleeping eye mask 🥑 and the niacinamide watermelon drops 🍉. I was intrigued so I did some research and ended up ordering the make your own kit. It comes with 4 sample size items and a bag for $29. I thought I would try to sample the product first and see how it works on my skin before committing to a full size products. I got the •GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser I heard this cleanser is great for removing make up. I read the ingredient list and I am sold. I can never say no to a gentle cleanser • GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer I am looking for a new day time moisturizer and this seems perfect. This smells so good. It has a thin consistency and feels cool on the skin •GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask I HAD to get this. Dark circles and hollow under eyes are a problem. It’s generic and I love how this contains retinol Glow recipe also included lots of sample items. I didn’t pick up the niacinamide drops because I still have lots from Paula’s choice. However, I am excited to try it and glad I got a sample I will post a review in a month or so and let you all know how it worked out. Xoxo, Francesca 💋

GLOW RECIPE-Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleep Mask
The Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleep Mask is a gel-like sleep mask meant to brighten skin. It contains hyaluronic acid as well as AHAs meant to gently exfoliate as you sleep. This is a pretty versatile product so I is marketed towards anyone looking for glowing, hydrated skin. It doesn’t target any major issues in my opinion but is moreso for overall bright skin. The texture is a thick gel- borderline sticky like a goo (which you can see in the photo, it isn’t very runny). It applies to the skin slightly tacky due to its texture as well. I got this in the spring and thought the light texture was well suited for that time of year. It isn’t not enough for my skin in the winter and would have to be used like a serum rather than a mask. Because of this, I tend not to reach for it very often. I don’t like doubling up on masks and moisturizers. One of the most commonly talked about aspects is the fresh watermelon scent this product has. It is one of the reasons I decided to try it. Additionally, the jar it comes in is very cute. The downside to this jar is that it can be hard to get product out. It is very slippery so scooping it out with a scooper can be a hassle sometimes. I wish that it came in a squeeze tube instead. In terms of results, I think my skin feels soft after use but I never really saw any brightening effects. I don’t think the acid concentration is very high so it’s effects remained minimal on me. I suffered no breakouts using this, and no irritation which is always a positive for me. Due to the light consistency of this product, I would probably recommend it to someone with oily skin. It just wasn’t enough for my skin to function as a mask. I don’t think it is bad, but I just don’t think it’s really suited for dry skin. A normal 30ml tub retails for $22 which is not unreasonable to me. I think it works on par with other products at a higher price range so if you have oily or combo skin, this is definitey worth trying out.
GLOW RECIPE-Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
I’m so thrilled to share more about products I love 🥰 and it’ll give me an excuse to play with photography more! ——— Products: ✨ farmacy honey potion mask - this mask is super sentimental to me and I try to preserve it as much as I can. The first high end/luxury mask I bought three years ago that sparked my obsession with masking. It warms the skin as you massage it in and instantly adds moisture and firmness while also gently cleansing. . ✨ glow recipe watermelon glow sleeping mask - second jar of this stuff! I have oily, dehydrated skin. I used this throughout the entire summer as my night moisturizer when I needed extra TLC after sun exposure. My skin always looks and feels so glowy and baby soft in the morning. It’s also the perfect last step after multi-masking. . ✨ herbivore botanicals blue tansy resurfacing clarity mask - I’m almost out! this mask isn’t for those who are new to acids. I use this when my skin feels more congested or inflamed. blue tansy is a wonderful anti inflammatory ingredient and the AHA/BHA complex provides extra exfoliation!
HERBIVORE-Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask
Whenever I post about these lovely glow recipe masks (which is often!), I get questions about which is better: Avocado Melt or Watermelon Glow? They’re both amazing at what they do but have different use cases. Match with the statements below: 🥑 “I want to wake up feeling moisturized. I have some acne and want the clarifying clay and antibacterial honey to help calm down breakouts. I like fresh, not fruity, scents.” 🍉 “I want to wake up looking glowy. I have some hyperpigmentation and want to increase turnover of my dead skin cells with AHAs. I like thin, gel masks and layer hydration with serums, but moisture is not the end goal for me. I like fruity scents.” ✨They’re both the same price ($45) and really worth it IMO.

Glow Recipe Sleeping Mask
Just a little background I have a really oily t-zone and during the winter around my face would get really dry. I find that this product works really well when I put it on after my toner. I would wash my face, add a toner, and then apply this product. If I add any serums, moisturizers, or basically anything thick it would make my breakout. I was using another sleeping mask before that I found at a drug store beauty aisle, that never broke me out, so I was surprised when this one did. I’ve been using this product for a few months now (started around March) and I find it leaves my face so soft when I wash it off in the morning and my skin doesn’t feel like it was dried out during the night. The product also doesn’t come off on my pillows which is a plus. And it smells amazing!!! The consistency is very jelly like so it glides on very smooth. It didn’t help with my hyperpigmentation it acne. If you want a nice glow and softer skin in the morning then this is the product for you. Definitely get the travel size if you are thinking about purchasing it because a little goes a long way with this product. If you have oily skin you don’t want to put a whole a lot of the mask on your face because it would cause breakouts. But a small amount can sufficiently get the job done.
