K Beauty, with its weird textures and layered techniques, has been trending hard for years now. Our love for the beauty genre was recently rekindled after a meeting here in LA with the founders of Glow Recipe, Sarah Lee and Christine Chang (watch our full Facebook Live here)
Sarah and Christine’s Glow Recipe curates the best of clean K Beauty products, including their own namesake line of cult status skincare. Their watermelon glow sleeping mask once had a twenty-thousand person waiting list at Sephora!
We’re listing five products below that you should probably slather on ASAP. Here’s why…
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask |
Debuting as a #1 seller in Sephora is impressive, but not nearly as impressive as the supreme dewiness of our skin after a night of wearing this ultra-nourishing formula. This gel overnight mask is made with watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid and jasmine for a powerful blend that will exfoliate, hydrate and nourish deeply. The demand is definitely justified.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer |
As a follow up to their masking success, this watermelon based moisturizer has just launched and is an instant hit with us. K Beauty is known for their deeply effective cloud-like gel formulas. This gel based moisturizer sinks in fast and shows those thirsty cells who’s boss. CHECK OUT
Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner |
K beauty is all about building layer after layer of nourishment. You’ll often find
moisturizing toners – not the stripping toners that are so popular in the US – which infuse hydration and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. This one is their best seller in the category. CHECK OUT
Vita Propolis Ampoule |
Did we mention that K beauty is about major
layering? This serum is perfect for giving an instant “gwang”
(dewy glow in Korean) to skin, and light enough to layer even more products on top. The Glow Recipe gals recommends using seven layers of serum
for optimal results. Their incredibly bouncy skin in real life has us listening intently. CHECK OUT
Water Gel Sheet Mask set | We know what happens when we use one great sheet mask (hello, glow) but what happens when we use one every day for 30 days? Glow Recipe’s 30-day mask challenge is just the marathon we’re in the mood for. We love this sheet mask set that can be used daily. CHECK OUT
