Ahh... Glow Recipe. The brand that has burst onto the UK scene not to long ago and their fruit themed, moorish scented products have been hyped and coveted ever since. Having tried the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask* before, I was very happy to get my hands on the rest of the range to try out from Cult Beauty and today I'm sharing with you my first impression review since I started using it a few weeks ago.
It's not very often, especially when it comes to skincare, that a product makes me go WOW on the first application, but the Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum* did just that. Unlike other serums where they can be a little bit more of the thinner side, this comes out gloopy which is something I like. Despite being rich in lots of the good stuff including natural AHA's and ascorbic acid (words that may not mean a lot to everybody), this serum still remains super gentle on my skin, yet immediately smoothed and added glow to my skin overnight. I'm honestly excited to see how my skin reacts to this over the next few months as this has been a real treat to use instead of my usual glycolic acid in cleanser or toner form. The packaging has to be talked about because it's just so cute in it's pineapple shaped bottle and the scent makes it smell good enough to eat!
Next up is the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturiser*, which after trying the mask of the same name, immediately went on my wishlist upon it's release. This silky soft, yet oil free moisturiser sinks into the skin quickly, feeling weightless on the skin. This doesn't make it any less hydrating however as it contributes to the brightness and smoothness of my complexion. I would usually reach for a product like this in the morning, but it's been a delight to have something to apply in the Summer that cools the skin and still shows the results in the morning. This states clearly that it can be used straight up as a moisturiser on more oily skin types or as a serum on those with a dehydrated complexion, which is something to note, but I do find that this is enough during those warmer months.
The Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser* is a stand out product from their range due to the unique texture of it's formula that feels like a slightly thicker than the usual gel-like consistencies you get. It foams up which is something I usually steer clear of as it can be a little drying, but this one doesn't feel that way at all, in fact it makes my complexion feel super soft and clean.
The only product that I don't really get along with is the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist* which is absolutely beautiful there's no doubt about it and if you're a fan of the likes of the Pixi Glow Setting Sprays then you'll be even more wow'd by this. It doesn't leave any speckles on the skin which is a definite perk, but it adds a serious glow anyway. For me, I just find that the oily formula just doesn't work with my sensitive skin, but for many it's definitely worth checking out.
