When a product repeatedly sells out at Sephora, you know it is a good thing. I had to wait about a month to get my hands on Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask and it was worth every moment. First, what is a sleeping mask? Inspired by Korean beauty rituals, a sleeping mask is one that works overnight. The formula is key here otherwise it could cause quite a mess. This bouncy gel is pillow-proof. It is also oil-free and surprisingly lightweight.
I’ve used the mask several times over the last couple of weeks and each morning, I wake up with hydrated, smooth skin that looks glow-y and radiant. The mask is infused with hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract to add moisture. AHAs clarify and smooth skin by exfoliating dead skin cells. I use two scoops for a generous layer after cleansing skin. Allow to absorb for several minutes and wash off in the AM. If sleeping masks aren’t your thing, apply a thick layer and rinse after 10 minutes (advised for more sensitive skin).
Vegan-friendly and cruelty-free made without synthetic dyes and mineral oils. Free of parabens and sulfates. I hesitated writing a review about something that is currently unavailable but Sephora made it so easy to get on the wait list, I thought I’d encourage you to hop on the list as well. They sent me an email notifying me the mask was in stock again and it was in my hot hands within days.
