“A gentle, PHA- and BHA-infused watermelon toner that hydrates skin and minimizes the appearance of pores” performance | full star | gotta give it to ‘em simply for the fact they they say minimizes the APPEARANCE of pores. Yeah pores don’t actually be changing size, but they can appear lil’ when they don’t have a bunch of nasty’s in them. Literally my new favorite toner though, no burning/tingling sensation and thicc enough to pour into your hand texture | full star | Stan with this texture, as I said above you can plop some right into your hand, makes it easier to pat into skin & no need to waste a cotton pad scent | full star | I am stunned at how bomb this smells! Herbal & fruity, but not the artificial watermelon (yes I’m calling you out jolly ranchers) packaging | full star | the grooves in the bottle make it much easier to hang on to, def need as a clutzy b. Plus the pink top is cute af annnnd the bottle looks real cute wit a single stem flower in it, or two if you really wanna live ingredients | .65 star | there is super subtle fragrance in there, but everything else is all good, especially that cactus water to make it thicc value | .75 star | $34 is a little on the higher end for toner, but honestly worth it with how amaze this product is Total 5.4 out of 6 stars

Plump and Juicy Beauty Routine
My skin is the most important thing to me on my face. When my skin is looking right and tight I feel beautiful and confident. My beauty routine can be used day or night and is great for dry skin. I love a plump, juicy, and firm look to the skin and I’ve found this system keeps me looking snatched! It’s important to do this routine in order for the best results. 1. I start with cleansing the skin using the Kate Somerville Eradikate daily foaming cleanser after I’ve dampened my face with warm water. I love this cleanser because of its acne treating ingredients like 3% sulfur. I find it gives me a really deep clean and removes both my makeup and whatever dirt I have. I like to massage it into my skin for about 30 seconds and then rinse with warm water. 2. After I pat my face dry with a clean towel I then tone the skin with the Glow Recipe Watermelon glow toner. This toner has a lovely smell and feel, it has PHA and BHA to tighten pores and plump the skin. I simply apply it on the palms of my hands and pat it gently on to the face and neck. 3. This product is new for me but I’m absolutely obsessed with it. The Kate Somerville DermalQuench liquid lift serum is kinda a game changer for me. It comes in a spray bottle which you must shake well and then you spray it all over the face and neck, it tingles on the skin and foams, you must immediately massage it into the skin after application. This serum honestly firms, lifts, hydrates, and tightens the skin. It’s an oxygen facial and a hyaluronic serum all in one and I’ve seen immediate results with it. 4. The lashes mustn’t be neglected! I then use the Grande Lash lash enhancing serum on the base of my lashes. I’ve seen very fast results with this product, my lashes are growing in thicker, longer, and darker after using the serum day and night. 5. Once those serums have soaked in I then apply IS Clinical’s Youth eye complex to the entirety of the outside area of the eye. This product was gifted to me and I’ve been using it for 2 months now. It gives nice hydration and luminosity to the eye area and is Gentile. I apply half a pump to my ring fingers and pat the product in all around the eye. 6. The moisturizing step is the most important! I have a serious addiction the the Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream. I’ve never tried a moisturizer that made my skin look so good. This moisturizer activates dormant stem cells in the skin and deeply hydrates. It has a Devine creamy texture that literally melts into the skin. I dispense 2 pumps onto my finger tips and begin massaging it all over my face and neck. I do a little lymphatic drainage by massaging from the center of the face towards the outer part of the face, then down the neck to reduce fluid build up in the face and decrease puffing especially I the morning. The best part Is this moisturizer perfectly primes my skin for makeup application as well. 7. This last step isn’t necessary unless I’m feeling like I need an extra jolt of moisture and glow. If I need it I will use the Augustinus Bader The Face Oil on top of the Rich Cream. This gorgeous oil plumps my skin and adds the most healthy luminous glow.

This hurt my skin😡 Glow Recipe PHA+BHA toner😔
SKIN TYPE: Eczema, sensitive & acne-prone. Highly allergic to dust and pollen😔 I have a lot of clogged pores and comedones, unexplained bumps etc. but this toner helped the clogged pores and bumps🥵 GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner This product is a high-end toner that claims to deliver supple, hydrated skin through non-irritating acids (PHA/BHA) as an exfoliant for congested skin/clogged pores. While the glowy look and visible decrease in clogged pores/bumps was achieved it certainly had its cons when I use this product. I’ve used this product for ~2 months and I’m not entirely certain if it’s due to the fragrance or if it’s just not the right product for me but this product really purged tf out of my skin before giving me the dewy, glass skin look. I use the toner after I double-cleanse, using 1-3 drops patting into the skin all over the face until dry, finishing the skincare routine with Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream , Avène - Skin Recovery Cream & sometimes Bio-Oil - Dry Skin Gel orAvène - Hydrance AQUA-GEL orLA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm  I found that a day after each use, my skin begins to dry up and either in angry red patches like a usual eczema flare up, except it’s not really itchy just red and raw kind of pain. This would continue for a few days to a week, sometimes resorting to using my prescribed corticosteroid ointment to get rid of the adverse reaction Although my skin did get angry and irritated like an absolute bitch, I found that my skin did visibly clear up from previous clogged pores and bumps, smoothing the skin and looked quite glowing. I don’t get really pimples anymore after incorporating this product into my routine and when they do occur they’re gone in a day I haven’t seen anyone with a similar reaction to this product hopefully it’s just a minor allergy reaction to ingredients or my bad in over-exfoliating as I found that using smaller amount of toner (1-2 drops) as spot treatments worked as effectively without the irritation Honestly the productGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner did work for me just not in the way I expected it would nor recommend anyone to try if you know you would react badly to it. The price ($54AUD) could be justified that you won’t be using much at a time so it’ll last hella long and it does deliver what it claims to do which is exfoliate and decongest the skin. I didn’t find it particularly hydrating and has a tacky gel consistency that absorbed quickly into the skin but it did decrease my clogged pores and comedones🥰. After finishing this bottle I would not repurchase since there’s probably new products that wouldn’t cause such a reaction by the time I’m finished and probably cheaper if not better alternatives available.

GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner I have combination acne prone skin with dull & pore prominent t-zone🙃 It’s a problem area for me and it needs extra care. This toner has liquid formula & very easy to use. I use it at night with cotton squares during pm routine 🌙 It has a light fragrance, refreshing but sweet scent. It’s quite low on ingredient list but I recommend swatching first if you have sensitivity to fragrance🦋 After using it for over a week now, I can see a difference in how visible my pores are. It looks lighter & feels less congested✨ I’m very happy with the result! #CherieCreator

💗 GLOW RECIPE PHA + BHA PORE TIGHT TONER 💗 the new glow recipe toner has been getting maaaajor hype all over the community. like drunk elephant, i was a bit hesitant splurging big bucks on this toner because i felt like i was only paying for the name. THANK YOU LORD that that didn’t end up being the case. the unique formulation of cactus water, watermelon, & 6% of PHA + BHA make this toner the perfect “facial in a bottle.” 🧖🏻‍♀️ pore appearance greatly reduced within a week & the texture of this particular product makes it even more functional. here’s the key highlights that sold me on this toner: a little goes a long way, saving you product & money! recyclable packaging & active ingredients make it sustainable and efficient! it doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight or tacky & gives you a nice glowy feeling afterwards, especially the AM after 🦋 glow recipe reports that it’s gentle enough to use both AM and PM. i’ve always just used it every night prior to applying squalane oil & have had the best and perkiest skin ever since 👽

Welcoming @glowrecipe Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner This toner caught my attention the moment I saw “Pore-tight toner” We all want perfect poreless skin!!! That’s kind of impossible but we can definitely help shrink them down a bit. This toner is made with Watermelon extract helps with fine lines,wrinkles and dark spots.Also cactus water which has electrolytes and amino acids to hydrate the skin. The last two main ingredients PHA and BHA to exfoliate gently and decongest clogged pores, makes this toner suitable for sensitive skin. Ingredients: ▫️Watermelon ▫️Cactus Water ▫️PHA ▫️BHA ▫️Hyaluronic Acid ▫️Tea Tree Extract ▫️Cucumber I been using this toner for the past week during my morning and night time routine. I absolutely love the texture and how hydrating it makes my skin feel. It sets very nicely not sticky at all.Since it doesn’t contain alcohol or any bad ingredients my skin is loving this toner. I do see a difference in my pore texture which is a lot smoother. I’m really happy with the results so far and cant wait to see more as I continue to use it throughout this month.

A gentle and hydrating BHA toner
A gentle and hydrating BHA toner
[First Impressions] Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner Key Ingredients: Watermelon Extract, Cactus water, PHA, Willow bark, HA and Tea Tree Extract The consistency reminds me of snail mucin. It is slightly bouncy and there is that satisfying stretch and pull texture. However, once it comes into contact with your skin, it does not feel sticky or tacky at all. It almost absorbs immediately with a semi matte finish. Overall, feels light weight and comfortable This the first BHA/PHA type of toner that did leave my skin feeling dehydrated and tight by the end of the day. This formula does not contain salicylic acid so, I think that is why my skin did not feel dehydrated. I really like how it feels very gentle on the skin. This is a well balanced toner to prep your skin because it adds a little bit of hydration and moisture back into your skin. The first thing I noticed was how plumped and soft my skin looked with just one layer I haven’t noticed any difference in my pore size but, I do have the most stubborn pores on my nose. However, my skin does look soft, less textured and slightly smoother. The only downside is the signature Glow Recipe’s watermelon scent which I am not a fan off. It does linger for about 60 seconds before it goes away Overall, this toner seems quite promising and I have high hopes since it is working well so far. Even if it doesn’t do anything for my pores, I do like it for added hydration or when I want a gentle exfoliation

I really am a fan of a lot of Fresh products but this one is a top contender! Finding a good toner that’s effective but gentle enough is a struggle. This toner is great and I have no doubts it really does refine the look of my pores. After using it, my skin feels so soft! I really like that it’s still hydrates your skin and doesn’t leave it dry. The real rose petals in the product add such a unique detail! I already repurchased ☺️ fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner

First impressions of the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner 🍉🍉 Everyone is obviously obsessed about the smell. The cactus water and watermelon extract smell fresh and delicious together, I almost can’t stop smelling it! I dropped some of the toner onto a cotton pad (I really need reusable ones) and lightly pressed it into my skin which gave it such a nice glow. My skin did not feel stripped, but it felt quite plump and hydrated. I love the feel of the smooth glass bottle it comes in, and I will likely upcycle it into some sort of decorative vase. Glow Recipe always nails every launch and this was no exception. They have me watermelon obsessed. 💕
