Beauty Bag:Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask by Glow Recipe
I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for a great mask. I love incorporating masks into my skincare routine as a way to boost my regimen and for a quick fix when I need it. While searching at Sephora for a new mask I came across the Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask by Glow Recipe.
Glow Recipe was started by two friends Sarah Lee and Christina Chang. Their goal was to create lovingly curated destination site that makes natural, harsh-free beauty products and the latest skincare trends from Korea accessible to beauty-forward women around the world. I have always been intrigued with Korean beauty brands, as I feel that Korean skincare is always ahead of the trend and innovation.
The Glow Recipe sheet mask promises to give a glow like no other, and I'm all about glow. The mask is a transparent jelly made out of watermelon extract. Watermelon is great for hydration and soothing even the most sensitive skin types.
I loved that the mask had two pieces (GENIUS!) , so that it was a seamless fit on the face. I have found that with many other sheets masks the sheets don't quite fit, so it was great that this mask was adjustable. Also the mask is transparent, so you can wear it anytime. This will definitely be packed in my carry on to do while on the plane to shield my skin from the yucky air in the cabin.
The scent was also very subtle which is also a bonus. I hate putting on skincare that has an overbearing unnatural scent. Once I put the mask on, there was INSTANT COOLING! It was amazing!
I left the mask on for about 30 mins. The directions recommend leaving the mask on for about 10 to 15, but honestly the mask felt so good on I didn't want to take it off. Afterwards my skin felt dewy, refreshed, hydrated and you guessed it...GLOWY! This is great to prep the skin before makeup application (hey makeup artist friends!), and also just as a quick refresher! If your skin is dry and dehydrated this will zap it away. This will also be a great mask for post sun exposure if you've spent your day at the beach. I love it!
