    Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner Reviews

    Love everything about it - the packaging, the smell, the texture and the results.
    I've got dry - sensitive skin - but I still get big pores around my nose. This is such a lovely hydrating experience. My skin feels so clean and hydrated after using this. I will buy again, will buy for my friends for the holidays.
    I must say I love this product. It's amazing under makeup (gives a dewy glow to the skin) and is unlike other toners I've used on my combo skin. I was using paulas choice and its far too drying. Love this stuff!
    Life saver
    I got the tester version last Friday and I've been using the product twice a day. The scent is delicate, not too strong - more like a cucumber versus watermelon. I noticed the change in my skin and my pores immediately. My skin is sensitive t-zone a bit oily with enlargened pores and otherwise very dry. My pores are visibly smaller and my skin looks much healthier. My fiance noticed this too!! Will definitely buy again.
    Gorgeous all round
    This has left my skin feeling and looking so beautiful. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of my pores and my skin looks super glowy. It does smell nice but wouldn’t say it smells like watermelon, smells more like a salad Lol. But I’ve had it for about a month now and I’ve still got most of the bottle left, so will last a very long time! Best toner I’ve used so far.
    SKIN GAME CHANGER! I've been using this product for two weeks now and already my pores have become smaller and my skin is looking more glowy, happy and hydrated. Since switching from Khiels this brand has changed my skin for the best.
    Super fresh smell
    I ADORE the smell, it’s smell like fresh cucumbers and watermelon, it’s leaves your skin glass like and hydrated, also super gentle on the skin. I’m obsessed!
    It's very hydrating and refreshing but that's it. I have combination/oily skin and got this because I expected this toner would help reduce the appearance of my pores and blackheads. I've been using this twice a day, every day, for 2 months now but I don't see any difference on my skin.
    Would definitely buy again
    Bought this toner after looking at all the positive reviews, it did not disappoint! Very gentle on the skin perfect for sensitive skin. Smells amazing but not excessive or overpowering, leaves pores tighter and less visible and skin plump. Also, love the packaging, makes a £30 product feel incredibly luxurious, not to mention little plastic packaging and it is a vegan product it is great for those who are environmentally conscious!
    Not a fan
    Bought it based off reviews as I was in the market for a more gentle toner for days when my eczema was acting up. This leaves a weird film on my face and is kinda heavy and not very refreshing. Didn’t really notice any difference in the texture of my skin either! Maybe it’s just not what I’m used to from a toner but will not be repurchasing. Smell is nice though!
    Love love love
    I bought this because I love the watermelon moisturiser. I absolutely love this stuff. It's got a nice kinda botanical smell from the cactus in it and super nice texture. It adds just a nice extra layer of hydration to my skin and I love it. I've had it like 2 months now and use it almost every day, I've hardly gone through any and my skin is so bright and clear. I have super oily skin just as a reference if you're looking to buy.
    Watermelon Sugar HIGH indeed!
    I love everything about the product! The packaging, the colour, the smell and the how it reacts with my skin! Fortunately, I did not have any leakage problems and the packaging was intact. It is very pretty and aesthetically pleasing. In regards to the actual product, the smell is absolutely glorious and has me thinking I'm doing my nighttime skincare routine next to Harry Styles ;) The quality of the product is great, I use it after cleansing with either Drunk Elephant's Pekee Bar or Dr Barbara Sturm's Enzyme Cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling soft, bouncy without irritation (which is very important for me as I have sensitive skin). I always thought toners were harsh and not right for my skin type because they've always reacted badly with my sensitive skin, but this one is great and I saw a visible change in the brightness of my skin and my pores.
    Beautiful product and design!
    I have eczema prone, combination and sensitive skin, some dry patches, some oily patches. This toner smells beautiful, and goes on great, it has a sticky thicker consistency that you apply using your fingertips. It goes on really smoothly, and I've noticed my skin is far more glowy! It doesn't irritate my skin despite it being sensitive. My skin looks a lot more radiant and glowy, and just plumper and healthier looking in general. I use it twice a day and It's a must-buy!
    Love it !!
    I have oily skin & few red marks- my skin loves this, good results after just 3rd time using, I will continue to buy for a long time x
    Great product, problems with packaging.
    I got this product yesterday, and I can say I already like it after one day. Unfortunately the fluid got out from the bottle during shipping, and when it got to me there was only little more than a half of the amount. The bottle was not broken, it just slipped away at the cap. So I'm sad and happy at the same time, it has super texture, great smell, but I got just little of it...
    I love absolutely everything in this toner - texture, smell, overall experience of the brand, and - what's most important - effects on my acne-prone oily-ish skin. I use it twice daily (in AM I mix a tiny drop of serum in it, cause I skip moisturizer - my SPF is nourishing enough) and my skin looks better every day. my skin is more radiant, even-toned, smoother, and plump. This toner-essence became my staple HG and I can't be without it, so the second bottle is already ordered (you need only a small amount of it if you use your hands to apply it, so this new bottle will wait patiently for its turn).
    Really good, worth the hype
    This is a really lovely product, pores are refined, skin is moisturised and prepped for further moisturisers. The scent is there but very natural smelling watermelon, I haven’t noticed any irritation from the perfume. Would definitely recommend it!
    If you’re thinking about buying then DO IT
    Honestly cannot recommend this product enough!! I think previously I damaged my skin barrier with other products (i have combination skin) and thought i would give this a go and this product has really cleared my skin but is also so hydrating! I’ve been using 1-2 times daily. And smells AMAZING! I’ve been recommending to loved ones.!
    Best toner I have ever used
    Most of my life I have been blessed with clear skin so when I hit my 20s and started to break out I didn't really know what to do. This has been the only product I have used in the last year that has cleared my skin up - this combined with their cleanser.
    Instant results
    First day noticed smoother, softer skin and my pores less congested. Leaves you super glowy and great packaging- definitely worth the price
    Best Product
    I have had acne for 7 years tried all ranges of products from the cheaper side to the most expensive, this toner is amazing if you have oily or combination skin this is a must have. Also a little goes a long way and smell amazing
    combination skin
    this is one of the best toners i’ve ever used! smells AMAZING, absorbs quickly, preps the skin fantastically for the other glow recipe products and it does tighten my pores!! will buy again for sure
    I was super excited to try this after trying the other Glow Recipe products and it didn’t disappoint! Absolutely LOVE it! The smell, texture and formula... all amazing. Great difference to my skin from day one and will definitely be buying again!
    I LOVE IT!
    This toner from Glow Recipe is the best toner that I've ever used! I've been using this toner for about 2 weeks now. My skin is hydrating and definitely fewer pores. I love the toner! The smell is so good and I will be repurchasing this product again!
    It works!
    I am writing this review after 1 week usage (twice a day). I see definitely an improvement in my skin smoothness and pore visibility. It is hydrating and does the job on pores. (I have dehydrated combo skin and it tends to be more like normal due to right care.) l can even use it around my eyes.
    Amazing toner!
    It's only been few days since I had this toner but I'm already loving it. It is super moisturising and it gives amazing glow! The skin feels and looks great! It also works very well under make up. Just a note that this toner is more like an essence (it is not as watery as usual toners).
    Amazing Product
    I found this product after buying the Glow Recipe mini set & im so glad I did! This toner completely/acid transformed my skin. I’m a huge lover of Glow products and used it everyday morning and night and it truly made my skin look amazing!! Waiting on my next delivery that’s how good it is!
    This is a product I can't be without - I originally purchased the set of Fruit Babies and took the mini toner on holiday. Within a few days I saw the difference - my skin was softer and smoother, my blemishes were fading, my pores were smaller and my skin looked more radiant and clear. Truly a wonder product for me and I will be purchasing more!
    So good!
    I've been using this for nearly 2 months now and I absolutely love it. My skin feels plumped up after use and my pores are definitely smaller, plus the texture of my skin is lovely. It smells beautiful and the best part is that despite using it twice a day I have used about an inch so it will last ages (just make sure you apply it with your fingers!).
    Lovely product, was spectacle at first but then i noticed a real difference in my pours. They looked smaller and my skin looks fresh. Would 100% recommend this product, its also lasts a long time. A small bit in the palm of your hands goes a long way.
    Really lovely
    I've been using this for a month now and absolutely love it. I've seen a definite difference in how moisturised and even my skin is. I have combination skin. It also plays nicely with my other serums (lactic acid and niacinamide serums that alternate throughout the week). The smell is amazing and I love the consistency. I feel like the product will last a long time as well, so good value for money.
    Not as good as I hoped
    Unfortunately it's not what I hoped it would be. I've been using it everyday in the morning for about 4 weeks and I've seen no results whatsoever. I even used it for 2 weeks as my only exfoliator and I broke out like crazy, so not for my skin type (combo + acne prone). It does smell nice and the texture on the skin is ok, but for an exfoliator, it's not doing it's job very well.
    I first saw this reviewed by James Welsh who I follow in YouTube and Instagram. I've moved away from anything owned by the company who (I won't name) owns pretty much most of the usual brands we see, but this is not one of those brands. It's a gorgeously nourishing product which feels more like an essence than a toner. I have oily combination skin, but this gives a lovely soothing balance to the face after cleansing without stripping or increasing oil production. I recommend this product.
    Not what I’m used to
    I’m not sure what I expected from this toner but it’s totally different to anything I’ve ever tried before. It’s not stripping/drying & I wouldn’t apply with a cotton pad because the consistency is thick & slightly gel like. It glides onto the face smoothly, it’s super hydrating & my skin really loves it.
    Leaves skin so soft and glowy
    I am really happy with this product I suffer from hormonal acne, still at 49 not sure when it will ever end. But this has helped improve it. Leaves the skin so smooth and soft with a glow. I love using the product, great smell and thicker consistency which has improved the look of my pores. I use this every morning and night. Highly recommend!
    When I saw this product being released on Cult Beauty I was a little skeptical. I always am with products that claim to ‘shrink pores’. As someone who suffers from sebaceous filaments, I thought I would give this a try and it’s absolutely amazing! The PHA/BHA in the product definitely reduced the appearance of my pores and the product itself doesn’t strip my skin at all, in fact, it is incredibly hydrating! Plus it smells like watermelon!
    A fan!
    After reading the reviews, I added it to my basket right away. I really do notice an instant difference when using this product, especially when I apply makeup on after, my pores looks visibly smaller and my face feels super smooth!
    For reference, I have combo/oily skin and had noticed some larger pores appearing around my cheeks where they hadn't been as noticeable before. I have sensitive skin so wanted a gentle option and this looked like the one. I used it every night for almost two months and I have seen no improvement - if anything it made my skin worse! I started to purge (which can happen with acid products) so kept going thinking it would get better, but it didn't. I started seeing so many more blackheads appear and once they reached the surface they just stayed there. Everyone's skin is different but I'm very disappointed for a toner that costs over £30 to have no effect with continued use.
    A MUST!
    I've only used one toner before this which didn't do much for my skin but after trying this product for a few weeks I now realise why this is so hyped. My skin is on the drier side, sensitive and prone to breakouts but this did not irritate my skin at all. I use this daily and sometimes twice a day as part of my skin routine and I have noticed a big difference in the radiance and texture of my skin. When using at night I wake up with brighter and plumper skin. If you're confused about whether to buy it, take the plunge - its worth it!
    Gorgeous toner - apply with fingers!!!
    Like an absolute idiot I’ve been trying to use this with a cotton pad like any other toner, and all I noticed was that I was getting through it pretty fast and thinking to myself wow this is expensive and it’s not gonna last five minutes. But then I visited Glow Recipe’s YouTube account and saw their “how to use” video showed the lady applying the toner with her fingers. The texture is more gloopy, so applying it to a cotton pad just dried it all up and wasted it. I’m sure everyone else is super smart but just in case - make sure you apply with your fingers!
    Wonderful toner
    I have very sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin, and this toner is absolutely amazing! Its Aloe Vera aroma makes it very refreshing to use, and it is very smooth on application. This doesn't irritate my skin at all and I've noticed improvements in textured areas, and tightening of my pores! Comes in a lovely little glass bottle and seems to last a while! Will definitely be purchasing again in future
    Just the ticket for congestion
    I received this as part of the new glow collection that Glow Recipe released on cult beauty a few weeks ago, and I started using it once a day in the mornings followed by the pineapple vitamin c serum. Initially, I broke out but as it was on my chin where I had under the skin bumps, I persisted because this product was getting my skin to purge out the congested pores, which is difficult as my skin is a dry combo. After this initial purge, I noticed my skin started to beam with luminosity and health, the bumps have more or less gone, and my skin feels so smooth and looks like glass! I’m now using mostly glow recipe products day and night because I love them so much! The texture is like a thick essence, not runny or sticky at all, and heavenly moisturising! I just apply using my hands to save waste on cotton pads. Smells like freshly cut watermelons, and is really refreshing if you keep it cool in the fridge on a hot day!
    Absolutely love this toner! I’ve been using it twice a day and I love it! Has reduced my breakouts and it’s very hydrating! Will definitely be purchasing again!
    Even though it's fragrance-free it smells like real watermelon! It doesn't smell like those fake sugary watermelon flavoring, it really smells like a fresh juicy watermelon :) It feels amazing too!
    New favourite Toner for my dry sensitive skin!
    This is my new favourite toner, and not just because of the melon! I love PHA toners but they are usually quite drying, this is a very hydrating and calming toner. It has a wonderful viscosity so I can use it without a cotton round, & the fragrance is minimal. I was always sceptical of Glow Recipe believing it over-hyped however I was so pleased with this product that I ordered the entire watermelon range which I am so far very happy with!
    Watermelon sugar high
    Love this toner. Smells amazing, very subtle watermelon scent is not at all artificial. Makes my skin feel refreshed and makes a visible difference to pores and overall appearance.
    Hydrating and ACTUALLY makes you glow
    So my skin is kinda combination/dry? I have patches of psoriasis, but then I suffer from oiliness and pimples in those same spots after I apply medicated creams and my pores clog. However, after changing up my routine I get little to no pimples anymore, my psoriasis on my face is also really under control and I feel so happy with the rest of my bare face because I'm glowing. If you're thinking of splurging a little more, definitely do it, after over a month of using it twice daily, I've got about 4/5 of the bottle left. Nice texture, classy packaging, light/little scent, does exactly as it promises.
    Gentle Exfoliation & Hydration
    A new favourite toner, one I’m already loving. This delivers so much hydration without leaving skin feeling tacky. Perfect for my oily skin. Love that this also gentle exfoliates while hydrating. Gentle enough for daily use as well.
    After using this product for 2 weeks there is already a visible difference in my skin texture. The packaging is beautiful and the smell is AMAZING. A little goes a long way so the price is completely justified. Will be repurchasing.
    Got this cause I just love glow recipe and this is honestly one of if not the best toner I’ve tried. I’ve got dry sensitive skin and most exfoliating toners don’t react good but this one is just amazing. Really hydrates skin and the packaging is rlly nice
    Best toner I've ever used and worth the price! Cleared my VERY oily skin up in a week.
