When You’ll See Results From Your Fave Glow Recipe Products

The whole point of a skincare routine is to see results, whether you’re searching for a solution for redness or want to maintain a healthy glow for years to come. And that’s why we’re all about ingredients and formulations that offer both instant and long-term results, so you get that immediate boost to skin as well as extended benefits with regular use. 

That’s important, because without seeing results, it can be a lot more challenging to stick with a consistent routine (which, by the way, is key if you’re trying to calm breakouts and keep dry skin at bay). So, to help you understand how and when a few of our favorite Glow Recipe products will reveal results, we broke down the timelines for you.

Avocado Ceramide Recovery Serum

Immediate results

The namesake ceramides in our newest serum will work ASAP to soothe skin and replenish the skin barrier. That said, it may take a little more time to see visible reductions in redness.

Results after 4 weeks

Patience pays off: It’s clinically proven to reduce redness after four weeks of consistent use — not to mention nourish, balance, and comfort skin. While the complex of five skin-identical ceramides certainly offers powerful soothing abilities, the addition of avocado butter, allantoin, and rice milk also helps to keep things calm.

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops

Immediate results

You get an immediate payoff with this highlighting serum. (That’s the beauty of a makeup and skincare hybrid.) It features hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract to deliver a luminous gleam instantly and plump skin.

Results after 2 weeks

While niacinamide’s (many) benefits, such as calming inflammation, boosting skin’s natural ceramide production, and evening out skin tone, can take a little longer to set in — think two weeks.

Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum

Immediate results

Don’t want to wait? You’re in luck, because our hyaluronic acid serum has an immediate effect. It’s created with five molecular sizes of hyaluronic acid to plump skin layer by layer by drawing in moisture. 

Results after 2 weeks

Good news: It’ll also give you long-term perks, too. Not only does hyaluronic acid increase hydration over time with consistent use, but the three plums in the formula are rich in antioxidants — which help repair and defend against skin damage.

Pineapple-C Bright Serum

Immediate results

While vitamin C is one of those slow-and-steady ingredients, the serum pairs it with hyaluronic acid for that immediate hydration, as well as pineapple to gently smooth and brighten within a few days.

Results after 4-6 weeks

Vitamin C does a lot of heavy lifting for skin, and it’s one of those instances where good things come to those who wait. To that end, while our vitamin C serum can help defend against free radical damage as soon as you apply it, its other benefits — namely, promoting collagen production and fading hyperpigmentation — can take a few weeks.

Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm

Immediate results

Results can be a matter of perspective, which is clear with our cleansing balm. Because if you’re looking for clean yet moisturized skin, it can do that in minutes.

Results after 2 weeks

In terms of brightening and smoothing skin — thanks to the naturally exfoliating papaya enzymes— it’ll take about two weeks of regular use to see a difference in the level of skin’s radiance.

Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Eye Mask

Immediate results

Sometimes, it can feel like you could use all the eye cream in the world and never see results. That’s not the case with this gentle, retinol-infused eye mask. While the pairing of vitamin-rich avocado oil and niacinamide can help moisturize skin more quickly — and coffeeberry makes quick work of dark circles.

Results after 4 weeks 

The clinical results from the encapsulated retinol, which works to smooth and firm skin, will take about four weeks to become visible. In fact, our clinical testing found that 97% of women saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles in that amount of time.

Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner

Immediate results

This toner was inspired by the Aqua Peel Facial, a popular K-beauty treatment beloved for its ability to hydrate and clarify skin. And this formula lives up to it, albeit in an at-home version. Its refreshing, hydrating benefits are clear almost instantly.

Results after 2 weeks

With consistent use, watermelon and cactus water help deliver and retain moisture, while polyhydroxy and beta hydroxy acids clear out pore-clogging dead skin cells. For that reason, this toner is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of large pores in just two weeks.

Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

Immediate results

This overnight mask is powered by alpha hydroxy acids, which are known for their ability to smooth skin and even tone — and quickly. These gentle chemical exfoliants help dissolve dead skin cells and soften texture while you sleep, while the watermelon extract and hyaluronic acid work to plump and nourish skin ASAP. Not surprisingly, in an independent panel, 90% of women agreed their skin felt more hydrated immediately after using this sleep mask. 

Results after 4 weeks

Those beneficial effects are cumulative — which is why after four weeks of use, 96% of women agreed that their skin was bouncier and more radiant.

It’s worth keeping in mind that there’s a lot of nuance when talking about specific skincare formulas. For one, results are cumulative, so you might see some improvement earlier on before enjoying even more down the road. And while the hero ingredients of a given product might take some time, it’s important not to forget about the other key actives, which can offer benefits on a totally different timeline. Bottom line? If you see results ASAP, awesome — and if not, trust that they’ll be well worth the wait.
