    Glow Recipe - Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner

    Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner Reviews

    Love this product!
    Total must-have - smells incredible and leaves skin feeling smooth, plump, and hydrated. Definitely will stay in my routine.
    I have only one thing to say, this toner made me feel confident. I am on my fourth bottle of this product, so believe the hype! It is so gentle yet super effective when it comes to breakouts, oily skin and pores. If you have dry/sensitive skin I would probably patch test it first. Just to see how the skin reacts :)
    This smells divine and I can literally see my pores disappearing the more I use it! This with the watermelon glow moisturiser leaves my skin looking so dewy and fresh. It Will definitely remain part of my routine
    Leaves my skin feeling great. Doesn’t dry my skin out or make it feel tight. Definitely noticing an improvement in the texture also, especially where I have old pimple scars. My face is looking smoother. Gentle but very effective!
    Fave new skincare product
    Started using this almost 2 months ago and from the 2nd application, I noted a difference in the smoothness of my skin. I switched up my skincare a lot in the last 3 months but this is the one product out of about 11 that I would 100% buy again and in the bigger size! I don't have an issue with stickiness although it is a thick almost serum texture I find it dries down well with no residue left behind. I don't know if it has really helped with pore size but I use other products specifically for this, this product I wanted for smoothing out my skin and it's definitely done that.
    Not for me
    I wanted to love this product. It smells and looks amazing. However I recently had a breakout again after quite some time, I have oily and sensitive skin. Not sure if it’s from this product but it does make my skin feel sticky. I do believe it may be a great toner for someone else.
    incredible unique toner
    This gives me long lasting lightweight hydration as well as a gentle exfoliating boost helping to unclog the pores. The only reason I am not giving it 5/5 is because of the price point but I would still definitely recommend buying if you have the money!
    Not for me sadly
    I really wanted to love this product as I pretty much love everything Glow Recipe. The smell is amazing and the packaging is sustainable and gorgeous, however, I found the product itself almost slimy and it left my face really sticky and with no visible impact on my pores or skin glow. I will use the rest of the bottle but as a night toner instead.
    Love Love Love
    I have breakout-prone, quite sensitive, red, oily skin with visible pores on my t-zone! This toner is a LIFE SAVER for me. The full-size bottle lasts such a long time and feels so luxurious! Its a goopy texture but sinks in really quickly and doesn't leave a tacky feeling afterwards. After regular use for 2 weeks maybe, my pores are visibly smaller and my skin is sooo smooth and less red and spotty. I couldn't fault this toner even if I tried.
    Good performance - sticky
    I'd like to preface this by saying I have oily skin and really congested pores (especially on my nose) - and I have seen some results since I started using this. However, like all other Glow Recipe products - what's with the stickiness? For that reason alone, I will not be repurchasing.
    Decent toner
    I have combination/dry skin with a history of eczema. My first thought was the toner consistency is rather thick, unlike the toners that I’m used to that have almost water-like consistency. I first started using the product all over my face but found that it made my skin extra oily and started having tiny oil bumps on my forehead. I then switched to using it only on my nose area (where I am prone to blackheads) during the day and it has helped to reduce blackhead formation noticeably and reduced pore size slightly. Not a fan of the scent but it is mild when applied and goes away quickly.
    Squeaky clean glow
    Love this product. Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and glowing. Helped to treat my blemish-prone and uneven toned/textured skin. Believe the hype.
    Amazing for acne prone skin
    Tried this on a whim, as was desperate to improve skin texture which hasn't been great due to acne/breakouts. This changed my skin within a week! I still get the occasional breakout but they are nowhere near as bad as before. I combine this with the Pineapple serum in the evenings and it's worked wonders.
    worth the hype
    This has honestly improved my skin overnight. Started off with a small size as was initially introduced to this by TikTok, so from previous experience didn’t expect much but ever since the first use my skin has been amazinggggg. On my second bottle and will probably come back when it’s finished too.
    Amazing toner
    I am in love with this toner! It smells gorgeous, exfoliates the skin very gently and my pores seem to be smaller after 1 month of using it every day.
    Great toner
    This is my all time favourite toner ever. It’s so soothing and smells nice. My skin is glowing. Can’t wait to try other products from this brand.
    My new favourite toner
    I have combination skin but have always found an exfoliating toner did a good job at keeping the dryness at bay. I’ve tried many different AHA/BHA/PHA toners over the years but there’s always been something about them that stopped me from repurchasing. This is the best exfoliating toner I’ve ever tried, so gentle on the skin but so effective at removing any dry skin from my problem areas, and not at all drying given it’s a PHA/BHA, it’s actually really hydrating with no irritation. Cannot recommend this product enough. I also love that it gives you the option to buy a smaller size to trial it in case it’s not right for you so you’ve not had to commit to 150ml.
    Repurchased.. twice!
    I love the texture, not too watery, so it does not try run away from between your fingers! Very gentle, no stinging at all and I definitely see improvements in my pores.
    Fab product!
    I paired this with the watermelon moisturiser and it's the best product I have used in a while. I have really sensitive dry redness proned skin and getting products that help instead of hinder this can be difficult. But this combo is fab! Moisturiser, gentle and makes my skin feel soooo smooth! Defo recommend!
    Vanity Staple!
    This toner is my morning go-to. It smells and feels so lovely and gives my skin a nice, dewy glow. I absolutely love it!
    Love this toner, it’s just beautiful. Got the mini size and used it all up so bought the full size. It’s gentle enough to be used daily and it keeps my skin so soft and smooth. Amazing
    Lovely but...
    This toner is really lovely and I think the price point is fair. Soaks in nicely and provides a lovely base for my moisturiser. Not sure how pore-tightening it is, I’ll continue to use consistently and see. My one disappointment (and it’s a small thing, I know) is the dispenser. Surely there is a better way of getting the product out?
    Not good
    I have sensitive skin and am sad I can't use it!
    Best. Toner. Ever.
    This stuff is just gorgeous. Leaves my skin so soft and bouncy. I've never had such clear pores. Massage onto clean skin and leave to soak in rather than swipe on and wipe off with a cotton pad. Smells absolutely divine too. And bonus points for being almost all recyclable packaging.
    It’s ok
    I had so much excitement about this but I think it’s ok, nothing you really need ....
    Everyone needs to try this
    After seeing all the hype decided to give this a go.., really happy I did! Perfect for daytime, it feels really soothing and hydrating and for me instantly gives that hydrated glow! Have been using with the moisturiser and glow drops to prep my skin before make up and it works perfectly
    Worth the hype
    Yet another product I love. This brand is smashing it. Love how it feels so refreshing, I feel so clean after I’ve put it on and I look brighter. Will 100% repurchase.
    Great for beginners
    This is an amazing exfoliant for people who want to lightly exfoliate their skin while seeing real results. It's very hydrating and non-stripping, and I really appreciate how this has PHA, which is a really cool ingredient that we rarely see as the "primary" ingredient in other skin care products.
    I use this morning and night now - it has saved my skin. My skin feels smoother, more hydrated, I have close to no break outs now and it’s a great base for make up as well!
    Nice Toner
    I usually don’t bother with toner but really like this one, has such a lovely smell and absorbs into the skin quickly. I pat it on with my hands as using a cotton pad seems to soak it all up. I wouldn’t say I’m blown away by the results but will continue to use it until it runs out!
    The GLOW
    I absolutely love this toner. It’s definitely different from other toners I’ve used as its thicker, but its lovely & gentle on the skin. My holy grail, cleared my congested & blemished skin very quickly! Highly recommend.
    I have tried a lot of toners but this is the best. My skin is so glowy and clear!
    Loved the packaging, the bottle itself felt like good quality. Wasn’t initially sure of the product, as I thought it might sting when applied. However, I was wrong! Not only did it smell nice ( not overpowering) I noticed a freshness to my skin tone, and my face felt so smooth and incredibly soft. It wasn’t drying or “squeaky” like Pixi products. Overall I would recommend and I’m excited to try other products in the range
    I began using this prior to the birth of my baby and I'm around half way through the bottle and have been busy with baby and just enjoying using it so I was not looking for a difference. But when my partner took a really close up picture of me and baby, the first thing I noted was how good my skin looked - and considering I am sleep deprived and youth is not on my side - I am stunned at how fresh, bright and clear my skin looked that close up!
    The best toner
    I absolutely love this. After years of pixi glow, pixi retinol tonic and Paula’s choice toners that do more harm than good this little gem has made such a difference. It’s gorgeous to use (with hands not cotton pads) and I saw results within a few days. I don’t get on with any BHA products until this one and I can see that my skin is smoother and more even. It’s a pleasure to use and I was terrified as I avoid fragrance as I’m dry and sensitive with a recovering barrier function (thank you pixi glow tonic
    Loving this!
    This is the first product that I have tried from Glow Recipe and I am very impressed. After using Paula’s Choice for ages it is nice to try something new. I love that I don’t have to apply this toner with cotton wool, making it much better for the environment. Although it is liquid, it is thick enough that you can apply it with just your hands without making a mess. It keeps my pores small and doesn’t cause any sensitivity.
    Fantastic results
    Have been using this product along with other Glow Recipe products for a month now and have seen a noticeable change in my skin. I have very sensitive combination skin and this is perfect, no reaction, no purging, lovely smell & feels nice on!
    Brilliant product
    I was very skeptical of the hype surrounding this product however after finishing my first bottle I will 100% be buying another. It worked wonders on my combination skin and has helped to keep my pores clear. Can not rave about this product enough!
    A must try if you're prone to breakouts!
    Absolutely love this! I was struggling with breakouts for the best part of three months and then introduced this into my daily routine and its worked MIRACLES! I would recommend sticking with it as it took about 4 weeks for me to properly see this work magic..but now I cant get enough! Will definitely be re-purchasing.
    No results for me :(
    This smells lovely, lasts a VERY long time and the bottle feels very luxurious but it did nothing to tighten my pores, I used it for 5 months night and day with little to no results in my pores and skin clarity. However, I used it on my brother and his spots nearly almost completely cleared after a few days of using it with cotton pads.
    Broke me out
    Something on the ingredient list irritates my skin and breaks me out, I've never had sensitive skin and my skin is used to different chemical peels. Thought in the beginning my skin was purging but realized overtime it was irritation.
    Perfect toner for visible pores
    This toner helped my pores to get tighter but still keep my surface hydrated. At least that is my experience after using it every day AM and PM for almost 4 months.
    This toner is not really doing anything :(
    I didn't notice a difference to my skin since using this. It's not pore minimizing and it didn't give my skin a glow. The smell is nice and it feels refreshing but there is definitely better toners out there!
    Sales assistant part time
    The best toner. I love the consistency and smells. I'll definitely buy it again.
    Every other day
    Been using this toner everyday am&pm and it does seem to make my skin red! And irritated.
    The best toner EVER!!
    Love everything about it - the packaging, the smell, the texture and the results.
    I've got dry - sensitive skin - but I still get big pores around my nose. This is such a lovely hydrating experience. My skin feels so clean and hydrated after using this. I will buy again, will buy for my friends for the holidays.
    I must say I love this product. It's amazing under makeup (gives a dewy glow to the skin) and is unlike other toners I've used on my combo skin. I was using paulas choice and its far too drying. Love this stuff!
    So good!
    I've been using this for nearly 2 months now and I absolutely love it. My skin feels plumped up after use and my pores are definitely smaller, plus the texture of my skin is lovely. It smells beautiful and the best part is that despite using it twice a day I have used about an inch so it will last ages (just make sure you apply it with your fingers!).
    Lovely product, was spectacle at first but then i noticed a real difference in my pours. They looked smaller and my skin looks fresh. Would 100% recommend this product, its also lasts a long time. A small bit in the palm of your hands goes a long way.
    Really lovely
    I've been using this for a month now and absolutely love it. I've seen a definite difference in how moisturised and even my skin is. I have combination skin. It also plays nicely with my other serums (lactic acid and niacinamide serums that alternate throughout the week). The smell is amazing and I love the consistency. I feel like the product will last a long time as well, so good value for money.
    Not as good as I hoped
    Unfortunately it's not what I hoped it would be. I've been using it everyday in the morning for about 4 weeks and I've seen no results whatsoever. I even used it for 2 weeks as my only exfoliator and I broke out like crazy, so not for my skin type (combo + acne prone). It does smell nice and the texture on the skin is ok, but for an exfoliator, it's not doing it's job very well.
    I first saw this reviewed by James Welsh who I follow in YouTube and Instagram. I've moved away from anything owned by the company who (I won't name) owns pretty much most of the usual brands we see, but this is not one of those brands. It's a gorgeously nourishing product which feels more like an essence than a toner. I have oily combination skin, but this gives a lovely soothing balance to the face after cleansing without stripping or increasing oil production. I recommend this product.
    Not what I’m used to
    I’m not sure what I expected from this toner but it’s totally different to anything I’ve ever tried before. It’s not stripping/drying & I wouldn’t apply with a cotton pad because the consistency is thick & slightly gel like. It glides onto the face smoothly, it’s super hydrating & my skin really loves it.
    Leaves skin so soft and glowy
    I am really happy with this product I suffer from hormonal acne, still at 49 not sure when it will ever end. But this has helped improve it. Leaves the skin so smooth and soft with a glow. I love using the product, great smell and thicker consistency which has improved the look of my pores. I use this every morning and night. Highly recommend!
    When I saw this product being released on Cult Beauty I was a little skeptical. I always am with products that claim to ‘shrink pores’. As someone who suffers from sebaceous filaments, I thought I would give this a try and it’s absolutely amazing! The PHA/BHA in the product definitely reduced the appearance of my pores and the product itself doesn’t strip my skin at all, in fact, it is incredibly hydrating! Plus it smells like watermelon!
    A fan!
    After reading the reviews, I added it to my basket right away. I really do notice an instant difference when using this product, especially when I apply makeup on after, my pores looks visibly smaller and my face feels super smooth!
    For reference, I have combo/oily skin and had noticed some larger pores appearing around my cheeks where they hadn't been as noticeable before. I have sensitive skin so wanted a gentle option and this looked like the one. I used it every night for almost two months and I have seen no improvement - if anything it made my skin worse! I started to purge (which can happen with acid products) so kept going thinking it would get better, but it didn't. I started seeing so many more blackheads appear and once they reached the surface they just stayed there. Everyone's skin is different but I'm very disappointed for a toner that costs over £30 to have no effect with continued use.
    A MUST!
    I've only used one toner before this which didn't do much for my skin but after trying this product for a few weeks I now realise why this is so hyped. My skin is on the drier side, sensitive and prone to breakouts but this did not irritate my skin at all. I use this daily and sometimes twice a day as part of my skin routine and I have noticed a big difference in the radiance and texture of my skin. When using at night I wake up with brighter and plumper skin. If you're confused about whether to buy it, take the plunge - its worth it!
    Gorgeous toner - apply with fingers!!!
    Like an absolute idiot I’ve been trying to use this with a cotton pad like any other toner, and all I noticed was that I was getting through it pretty fast and thinking to myself wow this is expensive and it’s not gonna last five minutes. But then I visited Glow Recipe’s YouTube account and saw their “how to use” video showed the lady applying the toner with her fingers. The texture is more gloopy, so applying it to a cotton pad just dried it all up and wasted it. I’m sure everyone else is super smart but just in case - make sure you apply with your fingers!
    Wonderful toner
    I have very sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin, and this toner is absolutely amazing! Its Aloe Vera aroma makes it very refreshing to use, and it is very smooth on application. This doesn't irritate my skin at all and I've noticed improvements in textured areas, and tightening of my pores! Comes in a lovely little glass bottle and seems to last a while! Will definitely be purchasing again in future
    Just the ticket for congestion
    I received this as part of the new glow collection that Glow Recipe released on cult beauty a few weeks ago, and I started using it once a day in the mornings followed by the pineapple vitamin c serum. Initially, I broke out but as it was on my chin where I had under the skin bumps, I persisted because this product was getting my skin to purge out the congested pores, which is difficult as my skin is a dry combo. After this initial purge, I noticed my skin started to beam with luminosity and health, the bumps have more or less gone, and my skin feels so smooth and looks like glass! I’m now using mostly glow recipe products day and night because I love them so much! The texture is like a thick essence, not runny or sticky at all, and heavenly moisturising! I just apply using my hands to save waste on cotton pads. Smells like freshly cut watermelons, and is really refreshing if you keep it cool in the fridge on a hot day!
    Absolutely love this toner! I’ve been using it twice a day and I love it! Has reduced my breakouts and it’s very hydrating! Will definitely be purchasing again!
    Even though it's fragrance-free it smells like real watermelon! It doesn't smell like those fake sugary watermelon flavoring, it really smells like a fresh juicy watermelon :) It feels amazing too!
    New favourite Toner for my dry sensitive skin!
    This is my new favourite toner, and not just because of the melon! I love PHA toners but they are usually quite drying, this is a very hydrating and calming toner. It has a wonderful viscosity so I can use it without a cotton round, & the fragrance is minimal. I was always sceptical of Glow Recipe believing it over-hyped however I was so pleased with this product that I ordered the entire watermelon range which I am so far very happy with!
    Watermelon sugar high
    Love this toner. Smells amazing, very subtle watermelon scent is not at all artificial. Makes my skin feel refreshed and makes a visible difference to pores and overall appearance.
    Hydrating and ACTUALLY makes you glow
    So my skin is kinda combination/dry? I have patches of psoriasis, but then I suffer from oiliness and pimples in those same spots after I apply medicated creams and my pores clog. However, after changing up my routine I get little to no pimples anymore, my psoriasis on my face is also really under control and I feel so happy with the rest of my bare face because I'm glowing. If you're thinking of splurging a little more, definitely do it, after over a month of using it twice daily, I've got about 4/5 of the bottle left. Nice texture, classy packaging, light/little scent, does exactly as it promises.
    Gentle Exfoliation & Hydration
    A new favourite toner, one I’m already loving. This delivers so much hydration without leaving skin feeling tacky. Perfect for my oily skin. Love that this also gentle exfoliates while hydrating. Gentle enough for daily use as well.
    After using this product for 2 weeks there is already a visible difference in my skin texture. The packaging is beautiful and the smell is AMAZING. A little goes a long way so the price is completely justified. Will be repurchasing.
    Got this cause I just love glow recipe and this is honestly one of if not the best toner I’ve tried. I’ve got dry sensitive skin and most exfoliating toners don’t react good but this one is just amazing. Really hydrates skin and the packaging is rlly nice
    Best toner I've ever used and worth the price! Cleared my VERY oily skin up in a week.
    Gorgeous product
    Another great product and lovely packaging. It smells heavenly and makes my skin feel so fresh. Will continue to purchase.
    I love it
    I absolutely adore this watermelon toner. I adore the smell and am now on my second full-sized bottle. It absorbs easily and feels good on my skin. My skin is amazing now since discovering skincare in my thirties, but probably due to the combination of toners/ serums and moisturisers I am using. But this toner will forever stay on my favourites list even for the smell alone.
    Fantastic product!
    Giving this 5 stars. This is light enough to use every day but I use it as a chemical exfoliant 3 times a week (morning and night). After 2 weeks of use, I saw my blackheads reduce and skin smoothen. Gentle enough even for dry skin and I ove the smell too. Definitely, the best chemical exfoliant I have come across so far and has totally worked for my dry skin type in terms of smoothing out my skin and clearing blackheads.
    LOVE IT!!
    I received a sample of the travel size first, used it before moisturizer and before makeup. I LOVE IT! It does exactly what it says, gives hydration and my pores look almost invisible! My face looks healthier and makeup looks cleaner and fresher. Bought the full size after finishing the travel size.
    It's good..but not amazing...
    I like it - very hydrating and the texture is bouncy. However, it's a bit too sticky for the summer months.
    Glow recipe
    I'm 63 and this product is the only lotion that does exactly what it says it can do , and in a very short time.
    LOVE it
    I have oily sensitive skin so I was really afraid the fragrance would irritate me and that the product would break me out. Instead my skin completely loves this. The texture is sticky but I actually enjoy it, it feels light on the skin and the next morning I wake up with clear skin, my pores look smaller and it smells great. Overall I am in love.
    This toner definitely gives you a glow and doesn't dry out your skin at all. Love the packaging and the texture/feel of the product. Always a pleasure to use. Only peeve is, I haven't seen this help with sebaceous filaments unlike Paula's choice BHA, and I dislike that this has fragrance, albeit very little.
    Love this.
    Beautiful acid
    Pleasantly surprised by this lovely acid as I assumed the brand would be a bit gimmicky. I apply it directly onto my face after cleansing and I see an instant glow, no tingling like I get with some other acids. Gentle enough for everyday use. The scent is lovely and fresh which is really unusual for a PHA/BHA. Would repurchase.
    Love this!
    I got a sample in the Fruit Babies box. It was by far my favourite product and I was surprised by how well it works. I will definitely be purchasing a full size once I run low on my current toner.
    New staple
    Love this! Bought it as James Welsh talks a lot about this brand/product on his channel so wanted to give it a go. So glad I did! Definitely notice a difference in my pores and my skin has much more of a glow, friends and family have even mentioned how nice my skin looks recently and I think it’s down to this!
    Love it!
    I am sure this doesn't work on everyone, as it's the case with all products, but for me, it works out amazing. The smell is fresh and not too strong and I can already see a small difference in my skin after using it for 2-3 weeks, especially my pores that seem to have gotten smaller. I got this in my Goody Bag and I will repurchass it when it's finished.
    A lot of hype
    I have had two bottles of this toner (first one I bought and the second I got in the cult goodie bag) and it is good. It smells lovely and applies well but I didn’t see any difference in my pores or skin texture and this was after consistently using it for 7+ months. I think there are better acid products out there for a similar price. I’ve recently moved on to paulas choice 2% bha and it blows this out the water. I’ve also used liquid gold which I recommend as well for a liquid exfoliant. So basically this is ok but there are better options out there.
    Yes yes
    This is amazing, makes my skin glow and feel so hydrated. I am in love.
    Cute Product :)
    I did not expect to say this but: I love the smell! I look forward to using it every morning. I like that it is a bit serum-y in texture, it feels quite moisturising. And I do think that it makes my pores stay unclogged for longer till my next facial.
    Great one
    This has been a lifesaver. I got it from the Cult Goody Bag and didn't pay much attention to it since I usually use another toner. I decided to give this one a try since it is more gentle and hydrating. It works like a charm it gently exfoliates without causing any damage and it is helping to keep my skin under control again. Plus: cute packaging!
    Great toner
    I'm not a fan of Glow recipe products generally. They do not do well, at least with my skin and I tend to think they are more hype than good. I got this toner as part of the Cult beauty goody bag and I gave it a try and I love it. It applies nicely. It's not sticky. My skin has been so soft ever since I started using it. It's definitely helped with some hyperpigmentation too. The smell is nice and light and it goes away after application. Deffo recommend this one
    Love it
    I had a sample and I will definitely buy it after trying. It leaves my skin glowing.
    Beautiful toner
    This is such a stunning product! Got it in the Cult Goody bag and at first was sceptical about the brand, having read it’s heavy on perfume and mostly just pretty packaging.. oh how wrong I was! First, the heavy glass packaging is indeed pretty and feels very nice in hand, the viscosity of the liquid is thicker than the ones I have used before but it so incredibly pleasant on the skin, goes on smooth and feels instantly hydrating. For a while, I have been avoiding any perfumed products and was concerned about the smell but here it is genuinely very faint and light - a mix of fresh grass and watermelon - and dissipates after application. Previously, I have been religiously using another heavily advertised brand’s BHA liquid exfoliator which is roughly at the same price point and thought it is very good and would never switch it - but the GR user experience just has been whole another level - I look forward to using it each night. After a long time of feeling a bit bored and thinking of skincare as something that has to be done, while good products are functional only, GR makes me happy and so excited to try other products from their range! Thank you!!
    Not sure what the fuss is about tbh!
    I got this as the reviews are great but other than the nice smell (which is synthetic) the product is no better than the ordinary lactic acid, which i actually prefer!
    Love the watermelon smell I have quickly seen a visible difference in pores on my nose It’s light and seems to melt once I’ve added moisturiser
    Nice Product
    This is a very hydrating toner, it smells amazing and leaves my skin very soft. I wouldn't necessarily say it is pore-tightening but I will continue using it nevertheless because it is a really good toner.
    Such a nice toner
    I didn’t have too high hopes for this, to be honest as it was a purchase I’d made having been sucked in my tik tok influencers. However it’s the best purchase I’ve made in a very long time. It smells amazing and it’s such a nice consistency. So many friends have said how glowy I look so I will continue to rebuy!! I also love that the packaging is recyclable and beautiful. Awesome product, have now purchased the niacinamide dew drops so fingers crossed for that too.
    My Favourite Product!
    I bought this as a part of the fruit babies tester kit to try out Glow Recipe and it has become my absolute favourite product to use in the evening. It is not sticky, nor does it leave a funny smell or feel - it glides on the skin so easily and you don't have to use a lot for good results. It is gentle for my sensitive skin, cleared up my maskne so well and makes my skin look glowy and less irritated.
    Really nice toner
    This toner is really nice, my pores seem smaller and it makes my skin glow and look great. I wouldn't say it smelled like watermelon to me, more like cucumber. I wouldn't say this is a miracle toner, it hasn't reduced the size of all of my pores but I have seen some difference. I would definitely buy this again but just because of how nice it makes my skin look.
    Favourite toner!
    Great toner for my sensitive skin, it is fragranced and smells like watermelon but hasn’t irritated my skin.
    Fabulous product !
    This is my second bottle. I bought my first one on 30 April 2020 , I used it everyday. I swear by it. My skin is younger , tighter without any pores whatsoever. I am so happy. I have their other products too. They are all amazing.
    Great for sensitive skin
    This is great for anyone with more sensitive skin, I think if you're used to more hardcore acids this won't quite be enough for you though. For anyone with a more sensitive skin type, or is new to acids, this is a great introduction to acids if you're looking to help target more englarged pores and congestion in the skin. I love that this feels so hydrating when you apply it, and this makes it great if I'm having a more sensitive skin day, or if I've overdone it on the actives. Combined with a great cleansing routine this does help to keep breakouts and congestion at bay, it's not the most effective treatment I've found for my skin, but I think great for anyone starting out or with sensitive skin this would be amazing.
    So good
    So good love love it ❤️
    This toner is amazing
    Keeps my skin even and improved my texture without being extremely aggressive. The texture of this product is marvelous and I don't even dislike the smell. Have used it for 4 months and just repurchased it!
    Super gentle
    I've been using this toner now for around 8 months, and I have to say this is the most gentle exfoliating toner I've used. It doesn't burn or sting, and it doesn't seem too rough to use daily. It feels moderately hydrating and had a great smell and light texture. All around recommend and I've got backups ready.
    It truly is as good as everyone says it is. My skin is as even as when I was a teenager and more radiant than ever. I love it!
    Best toner
    The best toner I’ve ever had. Goes on smoothly and feels calming and hydrating. Overtime has made a noticeable difference to my pores and has helped with oiliness. On my second bottle now and can’t recommend it enough.
    Best toner ever
    Best toner I have ever used. I have dry and sensitive skin and it's perfect for me.
    I used to skip toner because it was too astringent or felt even the mild ones (I used Clinique) could be a bit harsh. This toner not only smells gorgeous but goes onto the skin like a dream. I love it. It feels hydrated and toned but not in a harsh astringent way.
    Great toner
    It has a really nice texture, very hydrating and gentle on the skin. It is also amazing value for money as I bought mine back in May 2020 and it lasted me until January 2021.
    Great results
    It did not work for me, I have sensitive skin and it broke me out. I gave it to my boyfriend who had a lot of very large pores and now he has been using it for 2 months every other day and it really does work well for him! Will order again.
    Great toner
    Love this toner! It smells amazing and has a really nice consistency. Leaves my skin glowing :)
    Lovely and Hydrating
    I’m really pleased with this toner. I don’t love the smell (I usually use unscented products and almost threw this out after the first use!) but it’s pretty subtle and doesn’t really bother me now that I know what to expect. It’s got a bit of a sticky texture but I feel like the gel helps hydrate my skin. I prefer to use a cotton pad (I realise that’s not the recommended approach!) because of the stickiness and I don’t feel like it wastes much/any product. Because it’s a bit thick, I have to use more toner than I would for a straight liquid. I expected to run out quickly (compared to my Thayers or Pixi toners) but I’ve still got 1/3 of the bottle after 5 months of daily use. My skin is smooth and glowing and my pores are much less noticeable. I’ve already bought a second bottle!
    Best toner I have ever used
    As per the title, I have always suffered with huge pores, this is the only toner I have used where I instantly see a difference in reducing my pores! I use straight onto clean hands as if use a cotton pad you won’t get the full effect (it also wastes ALOT more toner using cotton pads) and press into the face with your hands. I use with pineapple C serum and bananas soufflé twice a day.
    Not for dehydrated skin
    Broke out all over chin and cheeks...going back to my pixi glow tonic
    Not every day
    I like the consistency and I was using it AM and PM, but think it caused sensitivity/redness on parts of my face which wouldn't normally be sensitive.
    Love this
    It smells divine and makes your skin feel so fresh and hydrated. I'm not sure how much it minimizes my pores which is why I've marked it 4 stars, but other than that it's wonderful and I would definitely re-purchase.
    This product is dewiness in a bottle - 5/5! Makes my makeup application so much smoother and makes my skin so soft overall! So happy with it :)!
    Amazing Product
    I found this product after buying the Glow Recipe mini set & im so glad I did! This toner completely/acid transformed my skin. I’m a huge lover of Glow products and used it everyday morning and night and it truly made my skin look amazing!! Waiting on my next delivery that’s how good it is!
    This is a product I can't be without - I originally purchased the set of Fruit Babies and took the mini toner on holiday. Within a few days I saw the difference - my skin was softer and smoother, my blemishes were fading, my pores were smaller and my skin looked more radiant and clear. Truly a wonder product for me and I will be purchasing more!
    Life saver
    I got the tester version last Friday and I've been using the product twice a day. The scent is delicate, not too strong - more like a cucumber versus watermelon. I noticed the change in my skin and my pores immediately. My skin is sensitive t-zone a bit oily with enlargened pores and otherwise very dry. My pores are visibly smaller and my skin looks much healthier. My fiance noticed this too!! Will definitely buy again.
    Gorgeous all round
    This has left my skin feeling and looking so beautiful. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of my pores and my skin looks super glowy. It does smell nice but wouldn’t say it smells like watermelon, smells more like a salad Lol. But I’ve had it for about a month now and I’ve still got most of the bottle left, so will last a very long time! Best toner I’ve used so far.
    SKIN GAME CHANGER! I've been using this product for two weeks now and already my pores have become smaller and my skin is looking more glowy, happy and hydrated. Since switching from Khiels this brand has changed my skin for the best.
    Super fresh smell
    I ADORE the smell, it’s smell like fresh cucumbers and watermelon, it’s leaves your skin glass like and hydrated, also super gentle on the skin. I’m obsessed!
    It's very hydrating and refreshing but that's it. I have combination/oily skin and got this because I expected this toner would help reduce the appearance of my pores and blackheads. I've been using this twice a day, every day, for 2 months now but I don't see any difference on my skin.
    Would definitely buy again
    Bought this toner after looking at all the positive reviews, it did not disappoint! Very gentle on the skin perfect for sensitive skin. Smells amazing but not excessive or overpowering, leaves pores tighter and less visible and skin plump. Also, love the packaging, makes a £30 product feel incredibly luxurious, not to mention little plastic packaging and it is a vegan product it is great for those who are environmentally conscious!
    Not a fan
    Bought it based off reviews as I was in the market for a more gentle toner for days when my eczema was acting up. This leaves a weird film on my face and is kinda heavy and not very refreshing. Didn’t really notice any difference in the texture of my skin either! Maybe it’s just not what I’m used to from a toner but will not be repurchasing. Smell is nice though!
    Love love love
    I bought this because I love the watermelon moisturiser. I absolutely love this stuff. It's got a nice kinda botanical smell from the cactus in it and super nice texture. It adds just a nice extra layer of hydration to my skin and I love it. I've had it like 2 months now and use it almost every day, I've hardly gone through any and my skin is so bright and clear. I have super oily skin just as a reference if you're looking to buy.
    Watermelon Sugar HIGH indeed!
    I love everything about the product! The packaging, the colour, the smell and the how it reacts with my skin! Fortunately, I did not have any leakage problems and the packaging was intact. It is very pretty and aesthetically pleasing. In regards to the actual product, the smell is absolutely glorious and has me thinking I'm doing my nighttime skincare routine next to Harry Styles ;) The quality of the product is great, I use it after cleansing with either Drunk Elephant's Pekee Bar or Dr Barbara Sturm's Enzyme Cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling soft, bouncy without irritation (which is very important for me as I have sensitive skin). I always thought toners were harsh and not right for my skin type because they've always reacted badly with my sensitive skin, but this one is great and I saw a visible change in the brightness of my skin and my pores.
    Beautiful product and design!
    I have eczema prone, combination and sensitive skin, some dry patches, some oily patches. This toner smells beautiful, and goes on great, it has a sticky thicker consistency that you apply using your fingertips. It goes on really smoothly, and I've noticed my skin is far more glowy! It doesn't irritate my skin despite it being sensitive. My skin looks a lot more radiant and glowy, and just plumper and healthier looking in general. I use it twice a day and It's a must-buy!
    Love it !!
    I have oily skin & few red marks- my skin loves this, good results after just 3rd time using, I will continue to buy for a long time x
    Great product, problems with packaging.
    I got this product yesterday, and I can say I already like it after one day. Unfortunately the fluid got out from the bottle during shipping, and when it got to me there was only little more than a half of the amount. The bottle was not broken, it just slipped away at the cap. So I'm sad and happy at the same time, it has super texture, great smell, but I got just little of it...
    I love absolutely everything in this toner - texture, smell, overall experience of the brand, and - what's most important - effects on my acne-prone oily-ish skin. I use it twice daily (in AM I mix a tiny drop of serum in it, cause I skip moisturizer - my SPF is nourishing enough) and my skin looks better every day. my skin is more radiant, even-toned, smoother, and plump. This toner-essence became my staple HG and I can't be without it, so the second bottle is already ordered (you need only a small amount of it if you use your hands to apply it, so this new bottle will wait patiently for its turn).
    Really good, worth the hype
    This is a really lovely product, pores are refined, skin is moisturised and prepped for further moisturisers. The scent is there but very natural smelling watermelon, I haven’t noticed any irritation from the perfume. Would definitely recommend it!
    If you’re thinking about buying then DO IT
    Honestly cannot recommend this product enough!! I think previously I damaged my skin barrier with other products (i have combination skin) and thought i would give this a go and this product has really cleared my skin but is also so hydrating! I’ve been using 1-2 times daily. And smells AMAZING! I’ve been recommending to loved ones.!
    Best toner I have ever used
    Most of my life I have been blessed with clear skin so when I hit my 20s and started to break out I didn't really know what to do. This has been the only product I have used in the last year that has cleared my skin up - this combined with their cleanser.
    Instant results
    First day noticed smoother, softer skin and my pores less congested. Leaves you super glowy and great packaging- definitely worth the price
    Best Product
    I have had acne for 7 years tried all ranges of products from the cheaper side to the most expensive, this toner is amazing if you have oily or combination skin this is a must have. Also a little goes a long way and smell amazing
    combination skin
    this is one of the best toners i’ve ever used! smells AMAZING, absorbs quickly, preps the skin fantastically for the other glow recipe products and it does tighten my pores!! will buy again for sure
    I was super excited to try this after trying the other Glow Recipe products and it didn’t disappoint! Absolutely LOVE it! The smell, texture and formula... all amazing. Great difference to my skin from day one and will definitely be buying again!
    I LOVE IT!
    This toner from Glow Recipe is the best toner that I've ever used! I've been using this toner for about 2 weeks now. My skin is hydrating and definitely fewer pores. I love the toner! The smell is so good and I will be repurchasing this product again!
    It works!
    I am writing this review after 1 week usage (twice a day). I see definitely an improvement in my skin smoothness and pore visibility. It is hydrating and does the job on pores. (I have dehydrated combo skin and it tends to be more like normal due to right care.) l can even use it around my eyes.
    Amazing toner!
    It's only been few days since I had this toner but I'm already loving it. It is super moisturising and it gives amazing glow! The skin feels and looks great! It also works very well under make up. Just a note that this toner is more like an essence (it is not as watery as usual toners).
