Once again, TikTok has proven to be a helpful tool for discovering effective skincare. Just last weekend, two products from Glow Recipe were put on display by creator Mikayla Nogueira for millions of viewers to see. The post was inspired by TikToker Glamzilla, who made a video devoted to the glow-boosting duo last month. Both of the skincare gems — Watermelon Glow PHA +BHA Pore-Tight Toner and Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops — saw an exponential spike in sales that far surpassed the brand's Black Friday weekend numbers. 

Both creators only had praise for the duo, saying it adds an instant glow to the skin and preps it beautifully for foundation applications. They each slather on a generous amount of the pore-tightening toner, before applying the serum overtop. "Over time your skin is just going to get better and better," said Glamzilla. 

So what makes this duo so good at reviving dull skin? The Pore-Tight Toner works across all skin types to target large pores, dryness, uneven texture, and lackluster tone. The alcohol-free formula instantly hydrates, giving the complexion a healthy dose of essential vitamins and amino acids that soothe inflammation and redness and deliver bounce back into the skin. Watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and cactus water, alongside PHA- and BHA- exfoliants, leave your face feeling silky smooth.

When used with the Dew Drops serum, your skin gets the ultimate hydrating treatment. The serum leans mainly on niacinamide, a potent form of vitamin B3, to minimize hyperpigmentation, brighten dull skin, and reduce pore size. Its formulation has the same hydrating sidekicks as the toner, such as watermelon and hyaluronic acid. It can be used in conjunction with your go-to moisturizer or on its own for a natural glow.

Sephora and Amazon shoppers alike can't get enough of both. One Amazon reviewer said they woke up to "soft, smooth, and glowing skin," and that their "makeup went on nice and smooth" after using the toner. 

"This has to be the best inexpensive serum there is," wrote a Sephora shopper. "I have been using it for about three weeks now and can definitely tell the difference in my skin. My cheeks had slight sun damage/discoloration, and this product has evened that out almost all the way. It is very lightweight and didn't make my skin oily."

The Pore-Tight toner is available on both Amazon and Sephora, while the Dew Drops are currently only shoppable on Sephora. Grab both today for the best glow around.
