The best summer skin is radiant and hydrated with oiliness under control- But are Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Formulas good for oily and combination skin? I tried Glow Recipe’s WATERMELON GLOW Pink Juice Moisturizer and Sleeping Mask and am ready to let you know exactly what the deal is on these well loved face treats.
Since it first arrived stateside, GLOW RECIPE’s watermelon line has been hyped up nonstop by beauty editors, bloggers and pretty much everyone who considers themselves skincare fanatics. GLOW RECIPE is known for curating the best trends in Korean beauty and formulating naturally based products that are never harsh on the skin. So with all the hype I knew I was going to have to break down and buy some to see what the big deal is.

I decided to try the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer (why do I just love the idea of it being called “pink juice”- sounds sexy and satisfying lol). I also knew I HAD to try the MOST hyped product, the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask.
The Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer is something I didn’t actually have high hopes for but have fallen IN LOVE with. Pink Juice is THE perfect summer moisturizer. It keeps my skin glowing and hydrated. It also gives my skin what I like to call “bounce” or a sort of resilience. The moisturizer claims to be intended for oily and combination skin. My own skin is not exactly oily but in summer definitely is combination and gets much oilier than during colder times of year. After trying Pink Juice I can say it is PERFECT for combo/oily skin. It has a gel like consistency that doesn’t leave your face greasy or TOO moisturized. And YES it contains watermelon juice as one of its not so secret ingredients.

Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer is DEFINITELY worth a try if you are looking for a lighter face lotion for summer but still needs results. The one caveat? SMELLS LIKE WATERMELON JOLLY RANCHERS. if you are put off by strong fragrance in skincare, this one is NOT for you. I liked the smell but it IS strong.
Next up I tried the MOST loved GLOW RECIPE product, their Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. This is THE product I hear about over and over from obsessed fans. So I knew it was a MUST if I was going to try anything from this brand. Really this product has dual functions. It is a radiance boosting sleeping mask that doubles as a hydrating gel based cream. If you think about it, that actually makes a PERFECT overnight product. This also makes it the perfect skincare secret for oily summer skin.
The reason this sleeping mask claims radiance boosting properties is because it has watermelon extract with gentle AHA’s. And YES, it IS gentle. Matter of fact, it is so gentle that on the first couple of uses I didn’t think it was DOING much for my skin. But over the course of a week I noticed that ever day when I woke up, my skin DID look fresh, radiant, glowy. In other words, it DOES deliver, but in a subtle way. So if most acid-based products are too strong for you, this might be a good thing to try.
Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a Multi-tasking nighttime skin solution
And Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a “one step” product. Slather it on and sleep in it. It functions as a treatment (mask) but also an overnight cream. PLUS it is full of hyaluronic acid so it DOES hydrate. I believe it would be good for oily and combination skin as well because it is not an intense cream but rather a light gel that WORKS. Just don’t expect it to work in one night’s use. Give this one some time to see gradual, subtle results. and yes, smells like watermelon candy.
