Glow Recipe Mask Reviews – Are they Worth It?

So normally at Sephora I stick to the truly ‘clean at Sephora’ brands but every now and then I’ll bend me rules (especially right after pay day 🙂 ) to expand my horizons. A travel size of Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask brought me over to the darker side (read: scentier side) a few months ago. I also eat my weight in avocado and watermelon daily so it’s only natural I should want to try these skincare products.

Love the girl gang behind Glow Recipe and that they’ve found a niche between K beauty / natural beauty / lux beauty.

And speaking of Glow: currently binging season 2 of this awesome Netflix series

I’ll make this review quick because my baby’s nap time is quickly expiring:




Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask Review

What I love about this Kbeauty mask:

  • hyaluronic acid
  • stay-put transfer-proof formulation
  • Alpha-hydroxy-acids
  • very easy on sensitive skin
  • soft feeling skin in the morning

What I don’t love about this Watermelon mask:

  • Added fragrance. Why. Why why why why why why why is this necessary??

Would I buy this again?

  • No. But I’ll put this in Stitch-fix box rating terms: I had a lot of fun testing this product. I may try their products again. But ultimately this wasn’t the right fit for me. I think a more effective mask is Maholo the Petal Mask (this is a BHA mask vs Glow Recipe AHA). Before you freak out at the price tag though, you can just get a sample from The Detox Market!


 

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask Review

What I love about this Kbeauty mask:

  • avocado (supposedly for natural collagen support? sweet) and honey
  • polyhodroxy acid: I can feel this mask tingling
  • any amazing melty smothering texture with mostly thoughtful ingredients

________

Love this blurb from Sephora, really stepping up ingredient callouts:

Ingredient Callouts: Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. This product is also cruelty-free.

________

  • soft feeling skin in the morning

What I don’t love about this Avocado mask:

  • Ditto from the watermelon mask. Added fragrance. Why. Why why why why why why why is this necessary??

Would I buy this again?

  • I’m not sure. This is one of the first times I’ve bought intentionally for its firming benefits. I think I need more time to tell if its working. I am enjoying it thought but I think I need to make my way through this entire avocado-honey pot for conclusive results.
