Glow Recipe came out with a new product a few months ago. They introduced the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer to their skincare line. I was kindly gifted this product in exchange for my honest opinion. In December I posted my first impressions on Instagram. And now it's time for a full review. My Instagram handle is @blushnbasil and I post about makeup, skincare reviews with a dash of looks on my account.
Sephora website says this is “A hydrating, skin-balancing, whipped gel cream in a refillable jar, packed with polyglutamic acid, hyaluronic acid, and plum for visibly plump, glowing skin.”
Packaging Of The Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
This product comes in a refillable jar. I believe this is the brand's first product that comes in a refillable glass jar. Once you finish the moisturizer just pop in a new refill pod. I love it when brands come up with ways to be more sustainable.
Formula Of The Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
The key ingredients are Plum, Polyglutamic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid and Ice Willowherb. Plum works together with hyaluronic acid for intense, juicy hydration and a youthful appearance. Polyglutamic Acid is a hydrating peptide that boosts the efficacy of hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture layer by layer for an all day dewy look and feel. Hyaluronic Acid included in this formula is a powerful blend of 5 different weights of hyaluronic acid that each target different layers of skin for a plump complexion. Ice Willowherb has outstanding soothing properties. Also this moisturizer is vegan and cruelty free.
My Experience With The Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
My skin has loved thick moisturizers as well as hydrating gel formulations. This falls into the later category. It feels very soft and smooth to the touch. I mostly use it as a part of my morning skincare routine. However for my evening routine I normally prefer thicker moisturizers. The Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer gets absorbed fast and immediately gives my skin a dewy look. Additionally my skin feels plump and hydrated.
Even though this is a lightweight moisturizer, I feel it provides a good amount of hydration. I have combination skin and I like it as a day time moisturizer. If you want a moisturizer that leaves your skin plump, hydrated and balanced, go for this moisturizer. I also enjoy the light, fruity scent. The scent is not overwhelming in any way. Moreover, it does not break me out. Overall a nice moisturizer to include in your skincare routine.
