Love it: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer



Sometimes all you – and your skin – really want is an easy to use, does what it says, honest to good moisturiser. But they are often the hardest to find. Many have a bunch of actives added in or are all talk with little to back it up, but none of that applies to the really rather wonderful Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer.
Drop the word "watermelon" into any beauty or skincare conversation and talk will immediately jump to Korean beauty and skincare brand Glow Recipe. With good reason. Founded by two former L'Oréal execs in 2014, Glow Recipe set out to make K-beauty more accessible to consumers and in a case of right time, right place, they seriously went global. Glow Recipe's mission, Lee has said, is "to break down what K-beauty [is] all about, educate consumers on the unique trends coming out of Korea, bring them best-in-class skincare offerings, and make them accessible to consumers through repositioning and education." The fact that their products are also insanely cute and well priced helps hugely, and thankfully, their cult-favourite Watermelon family is exclusively available here at MECCA and via meccabeauty.co.nz.
Which brings me back to the marvellous, 100 per cent oil-free Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer. A cooling gel-emulsion that absorbs instantly to seal in hydration and prep skin for the day ahead, it is my pick for a great summer option or tropical holidays due to its immediately chilly (in a good way) feel. It is packed full of yummy ingredients that your skin will love, such as
amino-rich watermelon extract to intensely hydrate, soothe and fight free radical damage to ward off fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Watermelon also diminishes the appearance of pores and gently sloughs away dead skin cells, whilst Hyaluronic Acid instantly quenches thirsty skin. This Holy Grail hydrator retains 1000 times its weight in water to breathe new life to dry, rough skin, whilst antioxidant-rich jasmine and peony extracts complete the picture.
Oh and while all this goodness is going into Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, what you WON’T find are Parabens, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, Silicones, Phthalates, Alcohol and Synthetic Dyes. It’s also vegan, and cruelty-free.
So, how do you use this puppy to elicit plump, juicy and hydrated skin? Well if you have oily or combination skin, simply use it as your key moisturiser after any treatment products have sunk on in. Dispense one pump onto fingertips and pat onto skin until absorbed. For dry skin types, it makes a great hydrating serum before layering on a thicker moisturiser, which is what I have been doing but will probably sub out for purely Pink Juice once summer hits. When you squirt a pump of it onto your hand, you'll notice it has a jelly-like consistency that melts to a watery serum as you rub it in. This makes it perfect for use under makeup to make everything look more glowy, and it doesn’t pill under foundation AT all.
Oh and last up, does it have a fragrance? Yes, but Glow Recipe products are never formulated with more than 0.5% synthetic fragrance so even if you’re a bit freaked by fragrance like me, you can rest easy. Glow Recipe uses the minimum amount of fragrance, when necessary, to create a sensorial experience, and all fragrances they use are tested and free of pcm and linalool.
