Glow Recipe: The Best Skincare For Men?

Over the past 3 years, I have spent countless hours testing and trying out new skincare products to find the ones that work for me. About a year ago, I found Glow Recipe!

Glow recipe has quickly become one of my favorite skincare brands and holds the most real estate on my vanity.

Here are a few of my fav glow recipe products and why they work for me 🙂

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

THIS!!! Is one of my absolute favorite skincare products I have ever tried!

It smells AMAZING and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and prepped.

It’s packed with Watermelon, Cactus Water, PHA, BHA, HA, and Tea Tree Extract.

These ingredients help to plump, smooth, and hydrate your skin.

My fingers are crossed for this to be included in the Glow Recipe Advent Calendar 2023.

Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer by Glow Recipe

Again, the smell of this moisturizer is so refreshing and helps me to enjoy my skincare routine!

This moisturizer is filled with watermelon and Hyaluronic Acid to help leave your skin as hydrated as possible.

This moisturizer leaves my skin looking hydrated and dewy!

Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Cream by Glow Recipe

I’m not usually a fan of Retinol, but Glow Recipe uses Encapsulated Retinol which helps to release the Retinol in smaller amounts, making it more gentle than most others.

The Avocado helps to soothe and nourish skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

This eye cream gets a double thumbs up from me as it is the only eye cream I have found that works, and doesn’t burn, answering the FAQ “Is Glow Recipe Good For Sensitive Skin?”

Glow Recipe Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser by Glow Recipe

I know it’s a little weird, but one of the things that is a yay or nay for me when it comes to cleansers, is how much it suds. The Avocado cleanser suds the PERFECT amount!

It also leaves my skin feeling soothed and ready for my skincare time!

Ceramide helps support the skin barrier health and reduce redness!

Strawberry Smooth BHA+AHA Salicylic Serum by Glow Recipe

I see why this serum has won awards.

BHA+AHA are two of my favorite serums and when combined they work wonders for my skin.

AHA works above the surface of your skin while BHA gets below the skin and unclogs pores.

*Good way to remember this:

BHA = B = Below

AHA = A = Above

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops by Glow Recipe

While I don’t use this serum nearly as much as the Strawberry or Avocado serums, I still love it!

I usually do my skincare at night before bed, but when I go through my routine in the morning, I use the Watermelon Dew Drops. 

Niacinamide helps to even skin tone and reduce dark spots, while still playing nice with the sun.

*ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use sunscreen! Especially after applying serums!!!

Avocado Ceramide Recovery Serum by Glow Recipe

The Avocado Ceramide Recovery Serum is one of my most used serums from Glow Recipe! As somebody with naturally red skin, I have tried an endless amount of products to reduce the redness and this serum has shown the best results of all.

It also feels amazing and leaves my skin so soothed and relaxed.

Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial by Glow Recipe

OMG! Clay masks are my FAVORITE!!!

The Watermelon Clay Pore-Tight Facial, well… tightens my pores!

I really enjoy using clay masks since I can actually feel them working and tightening on my face. 

Something really cool about this product is that Glow Recipe uses their special Hyaluronic Clay which is Kaolin Clay INFUSED with Hyaluronic Acid!

    1. This is a tough one!
      Tula is another one of my favorite skin care companies! They are my top pick at Ulta!
      The main upside that the Glow Recipe toner has on Tula is that the BHA helps to get below the skin, where as the Tula toner is staying above the surface.
      However, if the Tula toner works for you, stick with it!
