The warm weather is here and, now more than ever, we’re looking for ways to make our skin glow. 

Enter Korean-inspired skincare brand Glow Recipe, founded by Christine Chang and Sarah Lee in 2014 after the pair realized Korean beauty was only slowly emerging in the United States. Korean beauty, commonly referred to as K-Beauty, has since become a major influence on American skincare, with K-Beauty products putting priority on using good-for-you ingredients that help better your skin in the long run. K-Beauty, including Glow Recipe, has won the hearts of beauty influencers and major retailers such as Sephora. 

The brand was kind enough to send over one of its cult favorites, the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, as well as a new favorite, the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist. Both smell like watermelon candy, yet the scent is subtle enough that it fades after application and is unlikely to bother those sensitive to fragrance. The Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer has a lightweight, gel-like formula that smoothes over the skin leaving it with a hydrated glow. Containing watermelon, soothing botanicals and hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer is suitable for any skin type or texture, whether you experience dry or oily skin. 

The Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is just that — ultra fine. Unlike some of the top facial mists on the market, there is absolutely no unpleasant squirting of the liquid onto your face. Instead, the mist forms a gentle fog that is excellent at setting makeup and giving you a refreshing boost of hydration on a warm day. In addition to ingredients such as vitamins, watermelon extract and hyaluronic acid, the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist also contains hibiscus flower AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) to smooth the skin’s texture gently, also prepping it for makeup application.

Pick up the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer and Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist at your local Sephora or from Glow Recipe’s own site (and make sure to check out the rest of their curated selection of K-Beauty products) as you get glowing for summer.
