We’ve got the recipe for impossibly glowy skin

Glow Recipe Dew Drops with fruity background in a studio setting

If TikTok is anything to go by, no-make up make up is here to stay for a little while yet — and glowy skin is an absolute must-have when it comes to achieving that look. But, with so many hacks on our FYP promising to deliver the glowiest skin you’ve ever seen, it can be hard to know what actually works... and what doesn’t. 

Luckily, we’ve got the glowdown on exactly that. Enter: Glow Recipe — our not-so-secret secret to impossibly glowing skin. Packed with fruit-forward ingredients that promote a radiance from within, Glow Recipe lives up to its name time and time again.  


From the bestselling Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops to the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Gloss Balm, here’s our pick of the Glow Recipe products you need on your radar (and in your basket)... 

Get everything you need for a skin care glow up in one (super cute) set. Featuring six mini versions of the brand’s bestsellers, Glow Recipe’s EXCLUSIVE Fruit Babies set — which includes the Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser, the Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner, the Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum, the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream and the Guava Vitamin C Bright-Eye Gel Cream — will help you hit the reset button on your radiance. Ready, set, glow... 

How to use: Head here for details. 

"Love this, I use it everyday and it makes my skin glow."

We meant it when we said this product is a bestseller — and for good reason too. Made using only skin-friendly ingredients (no mica, glitter or pearls here), Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops instantly highlight skin while delivering vitamins and hydration.  

How to use: Apply as the final step in your skin care routine, or on top of make up as a subtle alternative to highlighter. 

Another Glow Recipe fan-favourite, the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer soothes skin with restorative vitamins, free radical-fighting antioxidants and amino acids. What’s more, the moisturiser’s star ingredient — watermelon extract — floods thirsty skin cells, while hydrating hyaluronic acid ensures your complexion looks (and feels) plump and juicy.  

How to use: Smooth a pea-sized amount onto skin after applying serum and gently pat in until fully absorbed. For more radiance, mix into your foundation as the first step in your make up routine.

"It gives such a beautiful glow to the skin. I 100% recommend it! 

If there’s one product we absolutely cannot do without in our quest for glowing skin, it’s this. Boasting a lightweight, whipped-gel texture (that won’t leave skin feeling overwhelmed), this moisturiser calls on some seriously clever ingredients. Brightening plum extract teams with hydrating hyaluronic acid, while willowherb and peptide polyglutamic acid lock in moisture for optimal results. 

How to use: After applying serum, smooth a dollop onto clean skin morning and night, and gently pat into skin until fully absorbed. 

You’ve got the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream so — obviously — you need the balm as well. Packed with a deeply nourishing cocktail of ingredients, this hyaluronic-infused balm transforms parched lips... Because lips deserve to glow, too. Blended with kakadu plum and raspberry extract, the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Gloss Balm delivers long-lasting hydration and pillow-soft lips. Oh, and the fruity scent is just. So. Delicious. 

How to use: Apply to lips as a deeply nourishing day — or night — treatment. Alternatively, use underneath lipstick or lipgloss for a smooth, hydrated base and a high-shine finish. 

"Has made my skin look even and brighter after a couple of weeks, definitely will repurchase this one."

Targeting dark spots and hyperpigmentation, the Guava Vitamin C + Ferulic Dark Spot Serum brightens and resurfaces skin using vitamin C, ferulic acid and vitamin E as well as rejuvenating guava extract. Also boasting a bunch of resurfacing acids, this must-have serum unveils brighter, smoother skin and has been formulated to remain stable over time — meaning this beautiful, baby pink serum won't discolour. 

How to use: Apply in the evening or before SPF in the morning. 

Another guava-packed goodie, Glow Recipe’s Guava Vitamin C Bright-Eye Gel Cream targets and transforms puffy, dehydrated eyes. Infused with hardworking actives that target common concerns around the delicate eye area, vitamin C and niacinamide work together to brighten dark circles while a duo of peptides and green caffeine help improve drainage and reduce puffiness. Yep, your boss will never know you stayed up til 2am bingeing your favourite TV series... 

How to use: Gently tap a pea-sized amount onto the entire eye area, including eyelids and between eyebrows. Use morning and night.
