Watermelon, or its extract, is traditionally used in Korea for cosmetic purposes due to its beneficial effects on the skin. Thus, the founders of Glow Recipe transformed the Korean custom of using watermelon in skin care into the night mask of their brand. I have already tested Glow recipe products (banana cream and night mask with retinol and avocado for eye care) and I couldn’t wait to try this one, because it is their bestseller and one of the first products.
Watermelon extract soothes irritated and inflamed skin, provides it with vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids. Glow Recipe watermelon night mask with hyaluronic acid hydrates and replenishes, while AHA acids cleanse pores and exfoliate the skin during the night.
At the very purpose of the list of ingredients is the extract of green algae (Caulerpa lentillifera), which has proven to be an excellent humectant and as a plant that regenerates the skin, has an anti-inflammatory effect, stimulates collagen production and strengthens the skin barrier. It is rich in magnesium, calcium, copper and zinc. Watermelon extract has anti-aging action and hydrates the skin. Glycolic and lactic acid gently exfoliate the skin, and hyaluronic acid hydrates it. It also contains pumpkin, pomegranate, banana, wood peony, licorice and sweet potato extract.
The mask contains fragrance and alcohol. Their site states that they do not use more than 0.5% of artificial fragrances, added only for a better sensory experience, and all are tested and free of PCM (polycyclic musks) and linalool.

Glow recipe watermelon night mask has a gel-like texture and is easy to spread. It has a wonderful fruity scent reminiscent of a real watermelon. It is instantly and completely absorbed into the skin and leaves no traces of the mask on the pillow. In the morning after rinsing the mask, the skin is cleansed and soft.
Hydra-Soothing fluid, a non-greasy moisturizing milk, repairs and nourishes skin with shea butter and apricot kernel oil.
It can be used both as a daily, 10-minute hydration mask, which is then washed off, and as a preparation for make-up.
