We’re starting the month as we mean to glow on by dedicating our full attention to the fruit-filled, radiance-revealing skin care staples from Glow Recipe 

But before we get into the new launches and bestsellers, it’s time for skin care school. Today’s lesson? To brush up on our knowledge of the brand. Co-founded by skin care specialists Sarah Lee and Christine Chang (who share over 20 years of experience in the global beauty industry), Glow Recipe is built from a passion and commitment to demystify the recipe to healthy skin. The brand is famous for pairing antioxidant-rich fruit – everything from watermelon and plum to avocado and blueberries – with gentle yet powerful actives, creating skin care saviours for our complexion’s ever-changing needs. Think: fruit-forward, clinically effective formulas and radiant results. 

Plus, this dew-boosting beauty brand – which we’re offering FREE shipping on throughout May* – has probably been all over the FYP for months with its array of candy-coloured bottles bursting with fruit-infused formulas that perform.  

So, to celebrate Glow Recipe as our Brand of the Month, we invite you to shop exciting NEW arrivals (some of which are exclusive to us here at Cult Beauty) as well as the tried-and-tested favourites we return to time and time again. 

We won’t make you wait any longer. Without further a-dew, the latest staple to join our virtual shelf is *drumroll, please*... 

The Watermelon Glow Dew Balm SPF 30! This sun-shielding, skin-loving stick delivers an on-the-go glow. Enriched with complexion-caring ingredients, it calls on brightening niacinamide, hydrating hyaluronic acid and barrier-boosting squalane. The cherry on top? Shaped to fit in any bag, it makes on-the-go top ups easier than ever. Dewy, protected skin, incoming!  

And here’s our top picks of the Glow Recipe products you need on your radar (and in your basket)…   

A brand bestseller — and for good reason tooGlow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops are made using only skin-friendly ingredients (no mica, glitter or pearls here). Designed to instantly highlightskin while delivering vitamins and hydration, this dew-boosting formula is a skin care staple. 

The Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops are a make up-skin care hybrid that stars the same brightening and hydrating ingredients as the bestselling Dew Drops but this time with a luxurious bronzy tint to it. A formula that instantly warms up your complexion, it not only deposits a sun-kissed wash of colour but skin-loving benefits too. What more could we ask for? 

Looking to brighten, hydrate and strengthen your complexion? Cue Glow Recipe's Cloudberry Bright Essence Toner. This multitasking treatment boasts a powerful blend of ingredients to help reset your radiance including vitamins C and E (provided by the Cloudberry fruit it's named after) to deliver a wave of nourishing hydration. We’re forecasting brighter days (and skin) ahead…  

Get everything you need for a skin care glow up in one (super cute) set. Featuring six mini versions of the brand’s bestsellers, the Glow Recipe 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!  

If there’s one product we absolutely cannot do without in our quest for glowing skin, it’s the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream. 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.  

And there you have it! We don’t like to boast but we’ve got even more major skin care coups coming your way, including an Edit (bursting with six of the brand’s staples) and a limited edition toner! So, make sure you're following us on Instagram, Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) for the latest news, launches and  happenings…
