With everything from jumbo sizes and just the right size for your carry-on to radiance-reviving essentials every shelfie moment needs, Glow Recipe — our Brand of the Month (!) — has a fruit-fuelled formula for every concern. It’s a brand home to nourishing lip balms for parched pouts, refillable skin care favourites, hydrating serums reporting for dew-ty and so much more. The question is: what’s not to love? 

Far from just a hashtag-glass-skin range, treat your skin to the brand’s five-a-day favourites that actually work to support, nourish and strengthen your moisture barrier. Want to know which Glow Recipe formulas keep us coming back for more time and time again? Have a read through Team Cult Beauty’s glow-to staples:  

“The genesis of my Glow Recipe obsession started with this gem. All it took were a couple drops and that was it — I was hooked by its sage-hued serum, never to look back again. Having repurchased the Avocado Ceramide Recovery Serum about three or four times over, it’s nourishing texture always succeeds in restoring my skin’s suppleness and balance after one-too-many acids. I’d describe it as a primer for my moisturiser which helps my skin better absorb the good ‘stuff’ from the next steps in my routine.  Whenever someone asks me ‘what’s so good about Glow Recipe?’ I always point them in this direction, and they soon understand why it’s worth the hype.— Precious, Midweight Copywriter 

“The Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops is such a desert island product for me. It’s hydrating and glow-giving, and I’ve tried so many niacinamide products that just do not sit well under make up, but this is something I always reach for. Firstly because of its beautiful, dewy finish, but – huge bonus – it helps any make up, from a tinted moisturiser to a medium-weight foundation, sink easily into the skin for a seamless, natural finish. I apply it every day, whether I’m wearing make up or not!” Josie, Copy Manager 

“From the packaging to the formulation, the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream has everything combination skin could ever dream of. It’s super lightweight and glides across my skin like nothing I’ve ever tried. Most gel-like creams evaporate so quickly and often leave my skin feeling drier, but this dewy dream reveals a lasting radiance that’s not greasy or sticky. I’m usually on the go and love a holiday as much as the next person so the travel-sized minis really come in handy. And can we take a moment for the fruity scent? Insert heart-eye emoji!”— Luckie, Brand Partnerships Assistant 

“If you’re a fan of a super glowy, are-you-wearing-make-up natural skin finish, then consider the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturiser a must-have! My skin sits on the drier side of the spectrum and so I reach for formulas which give my skin a boost of healthy-looking radiance. My favourite thing about this? It’s extremely weightless and perfect for the summer months. I’ve got another waiting in my basket.” — Dorothy, Senior SEO Executive
