If you’ve ever been on #BeautyTok (the side of TikTok where all of your favorite beauty influencers and enthusiasts hang), you’ve probably seen Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops all over your feed. As K-beauty has become wildly popular in the U.S., Glow Recipe has quickly led the pack as one of the buzziest Korean beauty-inspired brands on the market.
They made their way into our skin-care routines with products that are not only clean but formulated with fruit extracts like plum, guava, avocado, and, most famously, watermelon (and seriously smell so yummy!).
Cofounders Christine Chang and Sarah Lee have skillfully developed products intended to address basically every skin-care issue you can think of. Their first product—the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (inspired by their grandmothers)—was an instant hit when it launched in 2017 (after their transition from an e-commerce site) and continues to be one of the brand’s best sellers.
With an ever-expanding lineup, it can be difficult to know which products are worth the spend, but rest assured, each of the products below will leave your skin glowing.
