This Watermelon Jelly Mask Is the Only Product You'll Want to Use This Summer


Christine Hahn for Glow Recipe

I'm a bit biased when it comes to online K-beauty destination Glow Recipe. After all, co-founders Christine Chang and Sarah Lee prescribed me a routine that made my skin insanely hydrated within minutes, so I constantly sing the praises of its nourishing (not to mention beautifully packaged) products. But turns out I'm in good company: The brand's Watermelon Sleeping Mask has a 5000-person waiting list. Watermelon is a bit of a newcomer to the skincare scene, which was perhaps the main source of the allure, along with the fact that it's touted as a soothing, restoring natural ingredient. Couple that with the millennial pink packaging, and you've got a product worthy of fierce buzz 10 times over.

So it comes as no surprise that the brand's latest Watermelon Glow Jelly Mask created a bit of an internet frenzy when the news dropped this week. Images of women wearing a glossy two-piece mask were scattered across Glow Recipe's Instagram page, which was instantly met with thousands of likes and comments of sheer enticement. "I just want to eat it," wrote one user, which we completely understand, considering the "sheet" itself is a cotton-free blend of watermelon extract and natto gum, meaning you're putting straight-up real watermelon in jelly form on your skin (please don't nibble on it, though). It's so natural, the pink tint doesn't come from synthetic dyes—just fresh melon goodness.
