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 Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment?

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.

Is this toner suitable for sensitive skin?

Our Watermelon Toner is super lightweight and hydrating, and we made sure to use the most gentle forms of BHA + PHA, making it totally safe for all skin types. Always do a patch test before using all over the face

What age is this product suitable for?

Our Watermelon Toner is suitable for all skin types and ages looking to smooth texture, hydrate, and decongest pores! You may wish to consult a dermatologist before using actives on young skin.

Can I use it everyday?

While Watermelon Toner contains effective actives like BHA and PHA, it’s balanced by ultra-hydrating, nourishing ingredients for an overall gentle formula that is safe to use every day. It’s also balanced to work perfectly with our other Glow Recipe products
