Glow Recipe gives skin care a fruity and fun twist. The brand’s formulas are clean and driven by fruit extracts like plum, guava, avocado, and, most famously, watermelon.

The brand’s mission is to treat your skin according to its day-to-day needs with actives cushioned in hydrating and skin-soothing ingredients. This balance helps to minimize as much irritation as possible. From the colorful minimalist packaging to the sensorial self-care experience, Glow Recipe is here to make your skin healthy and radiant and make skin-care routines a little more fun and fabulous.
If you’re on the beauty side of TikTok, you’ve probably seen Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops all over your feed. It’s worth the hype, and even beauty TikToker Mikayla Nogueira is obsessed with it. But we’re here to tell you that the brand has several other products that are just as effective and deserve as much of a spotlight. Got dark spots? Try out the editor-favorite Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum, and stock up on some Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Sunscreen SPF 50. Dealing with dryness and sensitivity? Our editors love how effective the Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum and the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer are in boosting hydration and supporting the skin’s moisture barrier. We curated our favorite Glow Recipe products ahead, some of which are backed by in-depth editor reviews.
