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 Glow Pink Juice 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🤩❤️

Glow recipe product reviews
✅Watermelon sleeping mask: a hydrating, mild exfoliation night mask. The texture is gel like and changes to water like on application. Contains hyaluronic acid, glycolic & lactic acid,watermelon extract, pomegranate, banana, pumpkin extract which are all good antioxidants. Contains fragrance. It makes my skin super soft in the morning. ✅Watermelon glow mist: a ultra fine mist that hydrates & refreshes the look of makeup. Contains watermelon extract, HA, mild AhA. It definitely is one of my favorite mist for how fine it is, how well it hydrates & the smell is divine. I use it as a last step in my night skincare routine to seal in the hydration. ✅Pink juice Watermelon moisturizer: the Top product of the my whole GR products. The texture is little similar to the sleeping mask but more light weight, but the hydration is extra ordinary(especially along with the mist). Contains watermelon extract, HA, licorice root extract, various antioxidants. It truly is one of the best moisturizer i ever used. Brightens well, hydrates and the packaging is beautiful. Works great for various skin types. I am surely repurchasing this in future, i really miss it. ✅Banana souffle moisture cream: A thicker moisturizer than the previous one. Contains the goodness of banana, potassium, magnesium, cica, turmeric, chia seed extract. Lot of calming ingredients. Contains fragrance, smells like banana. Works good for combo, dry and normal skin, not for oily skin. Not a must have product. ✅The watermelon mist & pink juice moisturizer are my top picks.

A little background about thisGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask . It is a hydrating and lightly exfoliating nighttime mask that retails for $45 USD for 80 ml and $22 USD for 30 ml. It’s also made for all skin types. I used this mask once a week for a month and a half. My first impression was that, like most of their products, it smells so good I want to eat it. Their watermelon scent is just like sour watermelon candy and not too overpowering either. Upon my first application, I noticed that it has a very thick slip to it, similar to a facial oil. I thought this was the natural separation but even after mixing the mask, the same thing happened. I don’t think it affected the performance of the mask, but it did make washing it off my hands a little bit of a hassle. Just make sure to mix it well to minimize this! I have sensitive skin, so I opted to wear the mask for about 3 hours instead of overnight. I used a nickel-sized amount, and that was enough to cover my whole face. One feature of this mask is that it’s supposed to be pillow-proof. I haven’t tested that myself, but I can say that the mask dries down completely and no residue comes off when I tap or rub my face. If you plan to wear it to sleep, I recommend waiting at least ten minutes before coming in contact with your sheets! And unlike some exfoliating masks, this one didn’t give me the “exfoliating” sensation as it dried down. All in all, this mask is pretty comfortable to wear throughout the night (or day) and it isn’t tightening on the face. Towards the end of the 3 hours, I noticed some peeling around my inner cheek area and forehead. Glow Recipe said that this effect is normal – it’s just the exfoliating part of the mask doing job. I used a warm washcloth to remove the mask (didn’t experience the weird slip like when washing it off my hands) and saw the usual things I experience after face masks. My skin was soft and looked a little more luminescent. One difference I did see was that the pores around my chin were significantly cleared up! I usually get most of my white heads in that area and this mask totally erased them. That was an unexpected yet huge plus for this mask! For the following weeks, I went through the same process and saw similar results each time. The mask is good for upkeep in the sense that my pores stayed clean and I kept my skin cell turnover high. I wouldn’t call this mask a hero product, but it certainly is a pretty darn good one! I really enjoy the experience of putting it on and would recommend the mini size to anyone who wants to try. A little goes a long way and it’s not something you use everyday. I like mild products like this that still allows me to get the resurfacing effect I’m looking for every now and then. And it’s such a cute present to gift your fellow skincare pals :) #CherieCreator

Oily skin moisturizer awards 🤩
To piggy back on my “oily skin still needs a moisturizer” post I thought I’d present my oily skin moisturizer awards to give a boost to three of my favorites. I wanted to start this out by stating I do have very oily skin. My main concerns are large appearing pores, uneven skin tone, dullness/dehydration. My Holy Grail Moisturizer - FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya If I had to pick one moisturizer to use for the rest of my life this would be it. For $38 you get 1.7oz of whipped hydration. Despite it being a whipped gel texture it’s very lightweight on the skin. A little goes a very long way as it smooths on to give your face the hydration it needs without it feeling heavy. Farmacy claims it has moringa seed extract and moringa water to remove skin impurities while papaya extract gentle exfoliates the skin. I have seen a little difference in the appearance of my pores while using this. I think the only turn off to this product is the very strong sweet smell it has. Best Moisturizer for Oily yet Sensitive Skin - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly This is my go to moisturizer for myself when my skin is freaking out and I need to take a step back from my routine. It’s also what I recommend to customers at work if they have oily yet sensitive skin. It’s one of the best no nonsense moisturizers on the market. It’s fragrance free, dye free, sulfate free, and oil free. The jelly is super lightweight and feels very hydrating on the skin. It contains sunflower seed cake, barley extract, and cucumber fruit extract to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier which is paramount of sensitive or compromised skin. For $28 you get 4.2 oz of product which will last you a while. They also have iD cartridges you can put into it which dispense serum into the moisturizer. The one I have above targets pores which is a concern of mine. It helps bring my skin back to its normal state when irritated while delivering the hydration I need. Best Exfoliating Moisturizer for Oily Skin - GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask Exfoliation is important for oily skin! When I do take a step back from my normal exfoliators I like to use this product in its place. The texture of it isn’t for anyone. It does have a more gloopy formula but I feel like once I work it into the skin it absorbs really nicely. For $45 you get 2.7 oz of product. It has hyaluronic acid and glycerin to hydrate the skin and glycolic and lactic acid to help exfoliate. When I do use this I tend to use it every other day because I don’t want to over do it (even though it is more on the gentle side of chemical exfoliators). When I do use this I notice my skin is extremely soft and hydrated in the morning. It also smells of watermelon jolly ranchers which is amazing!

Does “oily skin” need moisturizer? Myth busted.
A common question I get at work is “Do I still need a moisturizer if I have oily skin?”. I’m not sure when or where this myth started but a lot of people I’ve encountered have been told in the past that if you have oily skin adding a moisturizer on top is going to make your oils worse. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! Every skin type can benefit for a moisturizer, you know have to find the right one. When you cleanse your skin you have potential to strip it if it’s natural oils. In order to keep balance you have to supplement it with hydrating ingredients. I know the go to thought process with oily skin would be to take away those oils (maybe with stripping ingredients like alcohol filled toners) but if you pair it with the right moisturizer you’ll actually feel more balanced. I learned in esthetics school about the three basic types of moisturizers. You have humectants (which attract water), emollients (which smoothes the skin by filling in dry patches), and occulsives (which form a protective layer). With oily skin you’ll want to focus on humectants because you need less “oily” ingredients and more “watery” ones. These will be mainly found in gel formulas. They will be lightweight enough on the skin to where you don’t feel heavy and gross but give you the hydration your skin craves. Some of my favorites are the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask , Farmacy Daily Greens, and the Clinique ID series with the clear gel base. In the long run using gel moisturizers will actually help contribute to balancing your oil production and your skin will thank you in the long run. 🖤
