Is BHA okay for daily use?

While BHA is a powerful ingredient, we balanced the formula with extremely hydrating, gentle ingredients such as Cactus Water, Watermelon Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid to make it a unique, pore-refining formula that’s also super hydrating, leaving the skin hydrated and plump.

Why do I need a toner? Aren’t they unnecessary?

Toners are essential for restoring your skin’s pH after cleansing and infusing your skin with its first leave-on hydration step, and can have other benefits that target skin concerns. Our Watermelon Pore-Tight Toner not only refines the appearance of pores, it also creates a hydrating, supple base for your skin to absorb the remaining steps of your skin-care routine.

Can I use this with Avocado Retinol Sleeping Mask/Pineapple Serum/Watermelon Mask?

Just like the rest of our products, the Watermelon Pore-Tight Toner utilizes powerful active ingredients in a super-gentle way. Glow Recipe Skincare is formulated and perfectly balanced to work together in the same routine. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend patch testing them together on the back of your hand before applying to your face.

Can I use the Watermelon Pore-Tight Toner with an acne treatment in the same routine?

We recommend avoiding the use of Benzoyl Peroxide in the same routine as our Watermelon Pore-Tight Toner, as it contains BHA.

Will the BHA in the formula make me purge?

Using BHA in your routine can possibly cause skin purging, especially if you’re new to the ingredient. This period is totally normal, and can last anywhere from less than a week to 4-6 weeks.

Can I Recycle It?

Yes! Our shelfie-worthy bottles are made with 20% recycled glass and are 100% recyclable. Just rinse them after use and place them in your recycling bin. You know the inner plastic lid that prevents your product from leaking? Make sure to recycle it too.

Our cardboard cartons are made with a blend of PEFC-certified recycled paper, free of acids and heavy metal, printed with soy ink, and are 100% recyclable.

These actives are so great for ppl who can’t use physical exfoliation because of sensitivity issues. I love this product for minimizing my pores. And it’s perfect to use right before using the Watermelon Glow Dew Drops! Nice combo!
