Meet Watermelon Glow Hue Drops

Must read

The beauty of, well, beauty is that it’s what you make of it: These days, your face serum can double as your highlighter (hey, Dew Drops), while your eye cream can work as a primer for eye makeup. Watermelon Glow Hue Drops live up to that expectation of flexibility and experimentation, working as first and foremost a skincare product — it has the same hydrating and brightening base as Dew Drops, packed with niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, and also has the addition of centella asiatica to soothe skin.

Over time, this dewy serum leads to brighter skin and a more even tone. But since we love instant gratification, it’s also designed to deliver an immediate, radiant warmth to skin. How? Super-fine pigments give the formula a sheer tint to make your skin look like your skin, only better. With that, here’s what you should know.

What’s Inside

Since Hue Drops is a skin-first product, it contains the powerful, clinically effective actives you’d expect in a face serum. And if you’re familiar with the Glow lineup, then you already know that we’re big fans of niacinamide, and for good reason: Also known as vitamin B3, this ingredient is known for its ability to multitask. For one, it can counteract discoloration and dark spots over time. That’s because it interferes in the pigment production process, preventing newly formed, excess melanin (which is the pigment in skin) from making its way to skin’s surface.

Not only that, but niacinamide also works to support the skin barrier and can even control oil production. And, last but definitely not least, it’s also an antioxidant — making it an MVP among skincare ingredients. That’s why it’s a mega-star in Dew Drops, as well as a headliner in Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hue Drops.

Since Hue Drops helps to instantly even the appearance of skin tone with its sheer tint (while also helping to brighten hyperpigmentation over time, just like Dew Drops), we also added centella asiatica, aka tiger grass, in this new formula. If you haven’t encountered centella asiatica before, you’re in for a calming, soothing treat. This ingredient is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of redness, giving Hue Drops the ability to further even out skin tone over time.

On top of these skincare all-stars, Hue Drops is infused with bronze and gold pearls. The ethically sourced vegan pearl has been finely milled to lend an even tint to skin, leaving it with a warm (but not bronzed) look. Even better? The tint is so sheer that it works for all skin types, making the most of your natural radiance. (Heads up: Since mica doesn’t always have a transparent or ethical supply chain, we only use responsibly and sustainably sourced mica from a supplier that’s part of the Sustainable Mica Initiative, which helps ensure that companies are supplying mica in a responsible manner.)

Watermelon Glow Hue Drops also contains hyaluronic acid, our end-all, be-all ingredient for hydration. It’s a humectant, meaning it works to draw in and retain moisture in the skin, leaving it plumper, smoother, and more radiant. And, of course, there’s the namesake watermelon. Watermelon extract is soothing — making it a great counterpart to centella asiatica — and also packed with amino acids, making it a natural match for niacinamide.

How to Use It

Watermelon Glow Hue Drops is a winner for daytime wear, since it leaves skin with a lit-from-within warmth worth showing off. Apply one to two drops as the last step in your skincare routine, meaning after your moisturizer and sunscreen but before your makeup. If you want a little more of a tint, you can layer on more (but keep in mind that it’s not a bronzer or a self-tanner!).

Then, how you use within your makeup routine is up to you: You can dab a drop on your eyes for a hint of color — don’t worry, it’s been ophthalmologist-tested for safety — or pat it onto the high points of your face, like your cheekbones and brow bones. Got extra? Add it onto your décolleté or dab it onto shoulders for an extra gleam.

That said, you can also use Hue Drops in the evenings to get its skin-brightening benefits while you sleep, eventually waking up to glowing, more radiant skin. It’s the best of both worlds.
