There is a lot of buzz surrounding Glow Recipe, a once eCommerce Korean site that has now taken over the globe. Quite rightly so – it contains expert recommended ingredients, is used by celebrities when swanning down the carpet, and has frequently gone viral on TikTok.
Advocating for natural, gentle skincare, Glow Recipe aims to make this once Korean niche as accessible as possible. Founded by two skincare gurus Sarah Lee and Christine Chang (who share over 20 years of experience in the industry) they are bringing the SoKo glow right to your bathroom.
The skincare range contains natural ingredients such as banana, avocado, blueberry, papaya, plum, pineapple and watermelon to nourish the skin. And, if you look at the small print too (and get all sciency) you’ll find more skin-loving substances such as hyaluronic acid (which helps retain water in your skin) alpha hydroxyl acids (great for anti-aging), and retinol (which helps stimulate collagen) and that’s just the start of the list. There’s a reason that once you start using these products, you’re not going to want to change your skincare ever again.
Here are some products to add to your cart ASAP:
