Three things we love, in no particular order: face masks, Korean skincare, watermelon. As luck would have it, there’s now a beauty product that combines all three.
Korean brand Glow Recipe has re-released its Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask, which has already sold out once and garnered a 5000-person waitlist. It’s made with the flesh and rind of watermelon (rich in both antioxidants and lycopene), smells just like the stuff and has a bouncy, jelly-like formula.
“My mother used to grate cold watermelon rind to put on my face as a cooling mask,” Glow Recipe cofounder Sarah Lee tells US Vogue. According to Lee, watermelon has long used as a natural salve in Korea to soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
Her mask has the added benefits of hyaluronic acid and exfoliating AHAs, without any nasties like parabens, triclosan or phthalates. Even better, it’s a multi-use product: use as an ultra-luxurious night cream or a 10-minute mask.
The Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is back in stock now and – praise the beauty gods! – they ship to Australia. We know what we’ll be doing next Sunday night.
