I have been using this toner for a few weeks now and I am happy with the results so far. It did take awhile to notice a difference in the size of my pores, but it definitely leaves my skin looking dewy. I love that it is free of Parabens, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, Silicones, Phthalates, Drying Alcohol, Synthetic Dyes, Vegan, Leaping Bunny Certified Cruelty-Free.... Read more

I’m Absolutely IN LOVE with this TONER!! I have tried many many toners and Have been trying to find an exfoliating toner but was having a difficult time as they where all so drying and broke me out more which I definitely didn’t want!! When I seen Glow recipe made another toner I had to have as I have their WATERMELON GLOW ultra fine MIST✨🍉✨ That I LOVE ❤️ IT’S very hydrating but I still wanted an exfoliating toner and I had to have GLOW RECIPES WATERMELON GLOW✨🍉✨ PHA+BHA PORE-TIGHT TONER & lucky for me it was Mother’s Day!!!! And this has been the BEST TONER that I have Tried . I have suffered with rosacea for years and since using GLOW RECIPES products there has been incredible improvement in my skin, and since using this toner, I AWAKE EVERY MORNING TO TIGHTER PORES and SUPER SOFT BOUNCY HYDRATED SKIN!! It has also helped with breakouts that I get because of stress and believe me lately it’s been VERY STRESSFUL WITH THIS PANDEMIC AND IN LIFE IN GENERAL!!!! I hope EVERYONE LOVES THIS WONDERFUL WATERMELON-CUCUMBER 🍉🥒 lightly scented, GEL-WATERED TEXTURED TONER AS MUCH AS MY SKIN DOES!!!!... Read more

The texture is super bouncy and the smell is beyond amazing!! Some key ingredients include: 𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗻 𝗲𝘅𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁: watermelon has such high water content that it helps keep the skin hydrated and moisturized. it also delivers vitamins and amino acids that will keep the skin nice and clear 𝗰𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘂𝘀 𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿: cactus water contains a high concentration of electrolytes to hydrate the skin and rich antioxidants that help prevent UV damage. it also protects the skin from aging and collagen loss 𝗣𝗛𝗔: polyhydroxy acids help to resurface and smooth skin, while also removing buildup of dead skin cells. their larger molecular size allows them to sink into the skin more gradually, giving you effective retexturing and smoothing results with minimal irritation 𝗕𝗛𝗔: this ingredient penetrates the pore's outer surface and decongests clogged pores, making it one of the most effective ingredients in reducing the appearance of pores and blackheads 𝗵𝘆𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗱: did you know hyaluronic acid retains 1000x its weight in water! it helps replenish lost moisture and provide enhanced skin barrier support, creating that smooth, plump, healthy-looking skin effect...

I was initially a little hesitant to try this after seeing fragrance on the ingredient list, but Glow Recipe has stated that fragrance is always less than 0.5% of their formulations, and all fragrances are vegan and free of PCM compounds, acetone, and much more. so unless your skin is super sensitive, I wouldn’t worry too much about it!...

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore Tight Toner is a gentle watermelon toner that exfoliates to clear clogged pores, hydrates skin, and tightens the appearance of pores giving you smoother and plumper skin. Key Ingredients: - Watermelon Extract helps to hydrate soothe skin while improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots - Cactus Water rich in electrolytes amino acids that hydrate help retain moisture - PHA help to resurface smooth skin, while also removing buildup of dead skin cells - BHA helps to decongests clogged pores reduce the appearance of pores blackheads - Tea Tree Extract has antimicrobial properties that help clean pores soothe irritation This is a thicker toner, and sticky, than I’m generally used to. It’s bouncy but also viscous due to the cactus water. It absorbs into skin fairly quickly and provides a great layer of hydration. My skin is noticeably brighter and I have noticed the appearance of my pores tighten over time. It does contain fragrance, though it is low on the list. At times I do find the scent to be a bit overpowering as it does linger for sometime once it has absorbed. This is a very gentle exfoliator, I would personally recommend this to those just starting exfoliates or those who have sensitive dry skin. PROS: - Parabens, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, Silicones, Phthalates, Drying Alcohol - Doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts - Tightens my pores slightly - Hydrates skin - Soothes Calms redness in cheeks - Skin is brighter - Controls excess oil CONS: - Contains fragrance. But it is low on list. - Scent can be strong at times - Bottle is heavy and not travel friendly - Price is a bit steep in my opinion for full size so I shop around and get a deal.... Read more

This is such a gentle chemical exfoliants - if you enjoy a toner that provides hydration and also gently exfoliates, this is it! I quite enjoy this, although I usually do prefer a stronger chemical exfoliator, this is a great alternative still. BHAs 🌷Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract 🌷Betaine Salicylate These are much more gentle BHAs in comparison to Salicylic Acid PHAs 🌷Gluconolactone PHAs are gentler AHAs It also has: 🌷Cactus Extract (antioxidant and electrolytes) 🌷Watermelon Fruit Extract 🌷Glycerin 🌷Hyaluronate Acid 🌷Sodium Polyglutamate 🌷Licorice Root Extract 🌷Chinese Skullcap Root Extract And as usual GlowRecipe has a bunch of other extracts! This is a thicker toner. I was honestly surprised at the texture because it’s kinda gloopy? The product coats your skin and really adds in that extra layer of moisture. Unlike any other chemical exfoliating toners I’ve used, this one is by far the most gentle. As mentioned, I do prefer stronger exfoliating actives because I know my skin can take it - this I would recommend to those who want to ease into chemical exfoliations with minimal reactions!...

I absolutely love the texture of this toner. Its very hydrating and gentle on sensitive skin, since it contains PHAs rather than AHAs - which can be more sensitizing. I use this toner about twice a week when exfoliating and my skin loves it. I’ve noticed the tiniest amount of improvement of sebaceous filaments on my nose but more time will tell.... Read more

I am on my second bottle now and have been using this toner for about 1,5 years. It's got a lightweight bouncy texture that goes on smoothly. The glass bottle is very attractive and I love the pink color of the product 💗 It looks and smells so delicious like cucumber + watermelon 🤤🍉 this was one of the main reasons why I re-purchased the Watermelon Glow Toner. Application is easy and I had no problems incorporating it in my routine. It lightly exfoliates and always made me look forward to my skincare routine everyday :* I would recommend looking out for discounts on pages that sell Glow Recipe products,so it is not that expensive :)...

I was very content the first time, now on my second bottle I feel like the concentration of exfoliation might not be enough anymore, so I'd probably go for another exfoliator the next time... Read more

The Watermelon Glow toner has a slightly more viscous texture that I am used to due to the cactus water. My skin is definitely more hydrated! You can either apply with toner with your fingers or with cottons pads, but in my opinion, it would be best to forgo the cotton pads, as it reduces product waste! And like all the other Watermelon Glow products from Glow Recipe, it does smell vaguely like watermelon, but is not overpowering!... Read more
