Fruity fresh: Three skincare products to try from Glow Recipe

I’m a huge sucker for branding.

I’ve been wanting to try Glow Recipe’s products for years now, mostly since they are so colourful and the packaging is so stinking cute.  A couple weeks ago I blogged about their Watermelon line, of which they just released the Niacinamide Dew Drops month or so back, and I absolutely love how those products made my skin look and feel (I’m back home in Winnipeg now and I left them in Montreal).  Since I now know that the brand is definitely worth the hype, I was excited to get my hands on some of their other products, especially ones that are bestsellers.

If you are interested in giving Glow Recipe a shot but don’t know where to start, then take a look at these three products to dip your toes in the water, so to speak ;).

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask

I’ve chatted about retinol products a lot on here but I don’t think I’ve ever touched on a retinol eye cream.

Glow Recipe’s bestselling eye cream, the Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask (C$56) is a sleeping mask for the eye area that is formulated with avocado, encapsulated retinol and coffee berry to brighten, depuff, and treat the appearance of dark circles. This eye cream includes avocado, which has vitamin E and C to fight wrinkles and environmental aggressors, as well as soothe and nourish the delicate skin around your eyes. It also has encapsulated retinol to improve the look of uneven skin tone, as well as address the damage caused by daily exposure to pollutants and other free radicals. Since this is encapsulated retinol, it allows the retinol itself to sit on your skin for a long period of time, which will release small amounts of it, making it more gentle than traditional treatments.

In addition to retinol and avocado it also includes coffee berry, which is the seed of the coffee plant, which helps to revitalize, neutralize free radicals, and soothe.  These three potent ingredients time release throughout the night so you wake up with brighter, smoother, and more awake eyes.

The cream itself comes in a little jar with a separate spoon. To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of the packaging since I don’t find it to be the most efficient for an eye cream. It is cute though and does look adorable sitting in your medicine cabinet.  With that being said though, a follower of mine on Instagram did mention to keep it in your fridge since the avocado in there tends to oxidize, so definitely some food for thought!

Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum

Okay, so we all know that winter and skin just aren’t a great mix.

To keep your hydration in check, take a look at Glow Recipe’s Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum (C$55), which is a hydrating serum made with plum and five weights of hyaluronic acid to plump skin up with hydration.

Perfect for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, this lightweight serum targets dryness, loss of firmness and elasticity, and fine lines and wrinkles.  It contains next-generation hyaluronic acid, which is a powerful blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acids that hydrate the layers of your skin to plump it up.  It also contains three plums to hydrate, nourish and rejuvenate skin’s appearance quickly and over time.  Finally, it has vegan collagen and silk proteins to support the skin’s barrier by protecting it against free radicals, as well as to hydrate.

Apply this serum day and night to fight dryness, as well as reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner

Finally, when it comes to steps in your skincare routine, don’t forget to apply your toner!

I couldn’t imagine my routine without a toner and I was really excited to get in their bestselling one, the Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner (C$45) which is a PHA and BHA-infused watermelon toner that is aimed to hydrate your skin and minimize the appearance of pores.

Ideal for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, this toner is a lightweight liquid that contains watermelon extract to hydrate, as well as deliver essential vitamins and amino acids; cactus water to seal in moisture and prevent moisture loss while delivering electrolytes and antioxidants; as well as PHA, which is a gentle exfoliator for softer and smoother skin.

This toner contains no alcohol so it won’t dry out skin and also has willow bark, which is a natural form of BHA, which will help to unclog pores while hydrating.  Use this after your cleanser twice a day and you’ll notice a reduction in pore size, as well as glowing skin.

Three bestsellers from Glow Recipe

Glow Recipe has a ton of other products available as well that I can’t wait to try out, but in the meantime, these three will be a nice addition to my routine.  In case you aren’t familiar with the brand it’s based off of Korean skincare innovations and is also vegan and cruelty free.
