Extra Dew Drops hacks:

  • Over makeup: Pick up the formula, using the ring finger, and dab off excess on the back of your hand. Then gently pat "a drop of dew" on the high points of the face in a tapping motion.
  • As a primer: Apply one to two pumps as the last step in your skincare routine before makeup for a smooth finish and glow.
  • Mix with foundation: Mix "a drop of dew" into foundation for a boost of hydration and glow.
  • For your eyes: Dab a pea-size amount to the center of the eyelid and blend out.
  • For a double highlight: Pat a drop below complexion makeup and layer with a powder highlighter on top.

What in the formula helps deliver the amazing glow?

This emulsion formula contains the perfect combination of watermelon, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and lightweight, non-comedogenic moringa oil to create a reflective complexion without the use of glitter, mica, or pearls (and doesn’t leave a gray cast). The lightweight texture quickly absorbs, and is suitable for all skin types.

Is this suitable for acne prone, oily skin?

Yes! Niacinamide works to help keep pores clear and fresh, making it a star ingredient for those with acne-prone skin. Mica can be especially irritating for those with acne-prone skin, so this mica-free emulsion creates a lightweight, buildable texture that quickly absorbs, making glass skin achievable for all skin types.

What skin type is this product suitable for?

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops are suitable for all skin types. Niacinamide is a powerhouse ingredient that works to support the skin barrier to lock in moisture & visibly improve skin tone.

Will this layer well with makeup?

Yes. The formula is lightweight and sinks into skin, creating a hydrated, glowing complexion for skincare and makeup. It can be used under or over makeup for a customized dewy finish.

Can this formula be used around the eyes?

Yes! It has been clinically ophthalmologist tested to be safe for the eye area. For a glossy eye look, dab a pea-sized amount to the center of the eyelid and blend out. The formula can also be used under the eye area before concealer.

Is there fragrance in the formula?

There is less than 0.5% natural fragrance included in the entire formula, and we extensively test each ingredient to assure they’re safe for all skin types to use, including those with sensitive skin! Our Watermelon Dew Drops Niacinamide Serum has the same classic watermelon scent as our Watermelon Pink Juice and Night Treatment.

Pregnancy glow without the pregnancy

Love the way this makes my skin look and feel! Firm and that inner glow. Like I'm pregnant but not pregnant. I just wish I had more bang for my buck! Great product.
