Meet the New Dew Drops Serum

We’ve been all about glowing skin since day one. But actually getting your skin from your starting point, whatever that may be, to lit-for-within radiance can take some time and patience — for many, it’s a work in progress. Not only that, but it can also seem only attainable to those born with preternaturally super-smooth skin. That’s where our new Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops come in. This innovative, niacinamide-infused highlighter serum makes luminous skin possible for everyone and anyone, and within seconds, too.

The groundbreaking formula was inspired by the highlighting techniques long used by Korean makeup artists to give their clients’ skin a glow. Think of the face serum as a skincare product with serious highlighter perks; it leaves skin with a dewy sheen, but never looks shiny or greasy. It’s all about hydration — a mainstay in every single product we dream up — and works by harnessing skincare ingredients, including niacinamide, watermelon, and hyaluronic acid, to amp up makeup looks and bare skin alike. What we left out: mica, glitter, or pearls. That ensures this highlighting serum won’t leave a telltale gray cast on skin.

A true game-changer, our Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops also visibly brighten skin, minimize hyperpigmentation, and even out skin tone over time, no makeup needed. Here’s how this breakthrough serum works.

What’s Inside

While there are a ton of potent ingredients in this highlighting serum, niacinamide is the star of the show. It’s one of those ingredients that does it all. A form of vitamin B3, it can help strengthen the skin barrier, improve skin texture, calm inflammation, minimize the appearance of pores, and even control oil production. It can also even out skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. That makes it a powerful (yet gentle!) ingredient for every single skin type and how your skin feels day-to-day, from chronic dryness to a breakout that came out of nowhere. It’s also an antioxidant in its own right and beloved for its soothing properties. The latter point means it pairs well with pretty much every ingredient out there, including retinol, AHA, and BHA. In the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, it offers instant calm as well as long-term skin brightening benefits.

With niacinamide on skin barrier duty, next up is replenishing skin with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is one of those magic ingredients you can’t really go wrong with; the humectant is a winner for helping all skin types retain moisture (and, as a bonus, may even control excess oil production among those with oily skin). It plumps skin as it hydrates, too, to give skin a refreshed look.

Let’s not forget the fruit. Watermelon was an obvious pairing for niacinamide. As we already know (and love!), watermelon extract is hydrating, soothing, and rich in amino acids. Combine that with niacinamide and you have some serious radiance-boosting power from the inside out. Last but not least, vitamin E-rich moringa seed oil adds extra moisture without adding weight. Translation: The formula doesn’t feel heavy or oily, but sinks in ASAP.

Together, these ingredients work together to enable this serum to visibly brighten skin from within. And, for instant gratification, the highlighting serum can also deliver an immediate dewy glow without mica, glitter, or pearls. The formula is also quickly absorbed by skin, so it won’t leave any greasy feel or residue behind — just a beautiful, luminous glow.

How to Use It

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops can impart a glow to all skin types and conditions, thanks to its versatile, hard-working ingredients. If you have oily skin and are nervous about adding shine to shine, have no fear: The dewy radiance from Dew Drops doesn’t veer into greasy territory.

To use it as a serum, apply “a drop of dew” as your serum step before moisturizer (such as Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer or Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream) for naturally glowing skin over time. For instant radiance, apply one to two pumps as the final step of your skincare routine. You can follow with makeup or not, depending on the look you’re going for.

As with all of our serums, you can also pair the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops with other fac serums using the double-serum method, which can target different skincare needs. Want to tackle acne scars or dark spots? Layer it with Pineapple-C Bright Serum. Got dryness? Pair it with the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum.

Also, since Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops bridge the gap between skincare and makeup, you can use them in a number of ways depending on the look you’re after. Here, a rundown of our fave hacks:

Try it as classic highlighter

Pick up the formula using the ring finger and dab off excess on the back of your hand. Then, gently pat a few drops of the serum on the high points of the face, blending in with a light tapping motion. Apply it to your brow bone (just below your brows), the inner corners of your eyes, the tops of your cheekbones, and your chin to bring out your natural bone structure.

Use it as a primer

Apply 1–2 pumps all over your face as the final step in your skincare routine (and before makeup) for a smooth finish and subtle glow.

Mix it with makeup

Mix a few drops into your foundation or concealer for a hydration boost and dewy finish.

Enhance your eyes

Dab a pea-sized amount to the center of the eyelid and blend out to subtly brighten the eyes.

Create a double highlight

Pat the highlighter serum below your complexion makeup. Then, layer a powder highlighter as the final step in your makeup routine.
