Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is the Perfect Complexion Refresher this Spring
One of the skin care delights of life for me is face mists. I really love face mists and if I'm honest, I low key hoard them. Face mists are an integral part of my skin care routine and I love them for setting and refreshing my makeup. The mist that we are talking about today is one that I resisted, for a long time, as I felt that it was all Instagram and YouTube It Girl hype and nothing particularly special or worthy of it's share of my limited and precious beauty budget. I'm happy to say that I was wrong. Yes, I finally caved to the siren song of sweet, watermelon-y foggy goodness and purchased myself a bottle. Now, I think that this might just be the perfect complexion refresher for spring and summer.
what is it?Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra - Fine Face Mist is a versatile, tri-phase formula specially created to hydrate and refresh skin and set and enhance makeup.
Some key points to consider about this product:
- Watermelon helps soothe stressed skin while it subtly hydrates and delivers vitamins and amino acids.
- Hyaluronic Acid is a hygroscopic wonder that gathers in and holds moisture close to the skin to hydrate and plump, making skin feel soft and look fresh, renewed and a little more youthful.
- Hibiscus Flower AHA (this is a new one, to me!) can, over time gently exfoliate and smooth the look of the skin's texture, helping makeup to go on and look silkier and prettier.
- Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Face Mist is cruelty free, vegan and gluten free. It is also free of chemical sunscreen, which is a yay! for people like me who are sensitive and intolerant to chemical sunscreen ingredients.
a note about the sprayer
I have never used a spray product that has such a fine, fog like sprayer and while this face mist is a little on the expensive side, the mister is so ultra fine that I use surprisingly little actual product, every time I apply it so it lasts longer than I thought it would. Which is nice, because I don't have to replace it as often as I feared that I would.

how do I enjoy it?I like to store my mists in my skin care fridge keeping the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra - Fine Face Mist perfectly chilled and right at my fingertips. I shake it up so that the layers combine into a light pink fluid and let the ultra - ultra fine mister envelop my face in a sweet, delicious, cooling fog of misty goodness. Suddenly, my skin looks and feels softer, plumped and glowy, whether I'm wearing makeup or not.
As a woman of a certain age, hot flashes are a thing. Yep. The fire burns, deep within and every now and again, it rises to the surface and makes me feel a little scorched. That is when I grab my chilled face mist and give my face a cooling mist then I hit it with the breeze from my little portable, battery operated fan. I have to tell you, I love that little fan. It is small enough to pop into my handbag, tote or beach bag yet it offers a surprisingly powerful and cooling breeze wherever I am and it's easy to share with family or friends when they need a little cool down, too. One of the best features of this little fan, besides the oh - so - cute cat ears is that it is rechargeable via USB cord so that I don't have to constantly change batteries and that is a happiness to my wallet as well as my local landfill.
the bottom line and where you can get this stuff for yourself
I am such a fan of the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra - Fine Face Mist, $28.00 and I'm happy to say that it isn't just hype or an Instagram flatlay prop. This is a gorgeous skin care product that, while a tad spendy, is worth the asking price and I don't want my skin care fridge to ever be without that cute little domed bottle.
