Glow Recipe Review

Featuring the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

I’ve been a fan of Glow Recipe for a while now. I first discovered this hidden gem on Instagram and wanted to try out their products firsthand. In light of everything going on with COVID-19, Glow Recipe extended free skincare products to healthcare workers on the front lines. Luckily for me, I qualified for a gift and chose to try out the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. This product review will give honest opinions and results of this product. I hope you enjoy!

How to Use:

According to Glow Recipe’s website and the pamphlet that comes along with the package, you can wear the mask overnight or for a 10 minute “flash” wear.

For Overnight Wear:

Cleanse face with your favorite cleanser and apply the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask generously to your face. Make sure you are careful around your eyes. Fall asleep and wipe away in the morning with warm water and a cloth.

For 10-minute Wear:

Cleanse face as usual and apply a thin layer onto face. Let the mask sit on face for 10 minutes and wipe off with warm cloth with water. Proceed to apply your favorite moisturizer.


Smoothes and perfects skin, overnight. This pillow-proof formula acts as a radiance-boosting hyaluronic acid face mask, formulated with soothing, amino-acid rich Watermelon Extract, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, and pore refining AHAs that work while you sleep to gently exfoliate and clarify. It’ll quickly become your go-to face mask for glowing skin.

Smell, Texture, & Consistency:

Smell: AMAZING! If you’ve ever had watermelon on a hot ass day in the summer then you can instantly imagine this smell. It’s not too overpowering but subtle enough to stay on your face for hours on in.

Texture: Smooth, Creamy, Gelatin-like

Consistency: Non-sticky, water-like


I used the mask 2 days out of the week and I’m impressed. For starters, the formula is actually pillow-proof! I’d wake up in the morning with the mask still intact on my face (I’m a pretty wild sleeper).

I immediately noticed that the appearance of my hyperpigmentation and dark circles was visibly reduced. I also noticed a “glow” about my skin. It didn’t appear as dull. Overall I rate this product a 10/10 and say that it’s Spoonie Friendly as well.
