About My Skin
For those with normal, dry, sensitive, and combination skin, this product is for you. If you have especially dry or dull skin, I wouldn't think twice about purchasing the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist.
The Feel: Light as can be
The name distinction is important, because this isn’t your average face mist. Nay, the mist is so light, so fine, that spritzing it makes you feel like you’re catching the lightest spray wafting in from a watermelon waterfall. In Korea, these types of face mists are called “fog mists" because, well, they feel like fog on your face. If you’ve ever spritzed a face mist only to be hit in the face with globs of liquid and left spluttering or gasping, this face mist wants to help you get over your past trauma. Make sure you hold down the nozzle all the way for a long, satisfying fog effect—you’ll thank me when you try it.

The Scent: Watermelon wonderland
Fruity, fresh, and fine is what this facial spray is all about. Imagine the smell of cutting into a juicy watermelon on a hot summer day—it's a sweet sensation that not only refreshes your skin, but also brightens up your mood.
The Ingredients: Impressive for a spritz
Spritz-ability aside, the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is also made with a dewy skin-inducing formula consisting of 84 percent watermelon, hyaluronic acid, hibiscus flower, AHAs, and more botanicals. You can use it throughout the day to refresh your skin, swap it in as a makeshift hydrating toner, or even use it in your makeup routine (for example: try wetting your eye shadow brush with this mist to amp up the color payoff of your favorite eye shadows). The ingredients separate when you leave the product standing still, so make sure to give it a good shake before you spritz. Hold the bottle eight to 10 inches away from your face before spritzing, and then mist a couple times on your face.
The Results: Dewy and glowing skin
I’ve kept the mist at my desk and use it throughout the day to make sure my skin doesn’t look as tired as I feel. It's a great little refresh during an afternoon slump. It also doesn't mess up any makeup or sunscreen that may already be on your skin. Unlike other face sprays, it doesn’t leave me looking greasy a few hours later—instead, my skin remains pleasantly dewy-looking until the next spray. Mostly, I've been using it for an instant serotonin boost. It just smells so damn good—if happiness were a scent, it would be fresh watermelon.
The Value: Worth it
When it comes to facial mists, this one gets the job done. Leaving the skin hydrated, glowing, and smelling delightful, the $28 price tag is well worth it. You only need a two to three sprays each time you use it, so the bottle should last you a couple months (depending on how often you spray!). Use it in the morning for a nice wake up call or keep in your bag for when you're on the go.

Biossance Squalane and Hylauronic Toning Mist: Created with two different types of hyaluronic acid, and priced less than Glow Recipe's at $18, this product also plumps fine lines while hydrating the skin.
