All of your Dew Drops Questions, Answered

Say hello to the newest and dewiest member of the Glow Gang! Inspired by the ultra-chic highlighting technique popularized by Korean makeup artists, our new Dew Drops serum is the ultimate way to achieve effortlessly glowy skin in an instant and overtime! 

How should I use it?

Achieving the glowiest “no-makeup” makeup look is now going to be easier than ever! Wear it under your moisturizer for an effortless glow, mix it with foundation or blush for a sheer and natural look, or get glammed up and use Dew Drops as the finishing touch for an instantly glossy, Instagram-ready glow. You dew you! 

Do I use Dew Drops in the AM or PM?

This powerful skincare serum works perfectly under or over makeup to give you a fresh, dewy look. It also works well in your nighttime routine to deliver brightening benefits while providing intense hydration! Glow wherever and whenever! 

So wait, is this skincare or makeup?

Someone call Hannah Montanna because this is the best of both worlds! Dew Drops is a game-changing hybrid product that combines the glowy, brightening effect of your favorite highlighter with all the hydrating power of a niacinamide serum. Formulated without mica, pearls, or glitter, Dew Drops is a skincare highlighter that is truly the first of its kind. 

What does it smell like?

Dew Drops  has the same classic watermelon scent as our Watermelon Pink Juice and  Sleeping Mask, and like the rest of our line, is paraben-free + certified Clean at Sephora!

DOES IT HAVE FRAGRANCE?

Like all Glow Recipe products, there is less than 0.5% natural fragrance included in the entire formula, and we extensively test each ingredient to assure they’re safe for all skin types to use, including those with sensitive skin!

Can I use this with Pineapple-C Bright Serum or Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum?

Yes! These formulas all work well together to give glowing, bright skin. We recommend using Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum and Pineapple-C Bright Serum as a double serum step and then applying Dew Drops to the high points of the face. 

Can I use Dew Drops with my other favorite Glow Recipe products?

Yes, definitely! Like the rest of our line, we formulated Dew Drops to work with all of our existing products. 

Can it be used in the same routine as other concentrated serums?

Yup! Niacinamide works well with other actives like AHA, BHA, retinol & vitamin C, etc. That being said, we always recommend patch testing new ingredients and product combinations on the back of your hand before trying on your face!

How is this different from Pink Juice?

Our Dew Drops serum can function as a highlighter, serum, and a primer in your routine, depending on how you use it. The lightweight gel formula utilizes ingredients such as niacinamide, lightweight moringa oil, and hyaluronic acid to deliver an extreme glow while brightening and hydrating. Our Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer is a hydrating, oil-free moisturizer that is intended to be used as the last step before SPF in your AM routine, and before sleeping masks in your PM routine. The two pair perfectly together! 

Where does the glow come from?

This emulsion formula contains the perfect combination of watermelon, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and lightweight, non-comedogenic moringa seed oil to create a reflective complexion without the use of glitter, mica, or pearls (and doesn’t leave a gray cast). The lightweight texture quickly absorbs, and is suitable for all skin types!

Where does the color come from?

The color of the formula is naturally derived from soothing plant extracts and lightweight moringa seed oil! 

Where should I store my Dew Drops serum?

We recommend keeping your Dew Drops in a cool, dry place (out of direct light!), along with the rest of your skincare products. We do not recommend storing Dew Drops in the fridge, but if you want to put it in your skincare fridge for just a second to snap a cute shelfie… we’ll look the other way! 

Does it leave a tacky finish?

Dew Drops has a lightweight texture that leaves the skin feeling hydrated and primed for makeup, but never tacky or sticky. We always recommend gently patting in each skincare step with your fingertips to assure even absorption. 

Will this layer well with makeup?

Yes! We created this buildable formula to work well under and on top of makeup. To use Dew Drops as a makeup primer, we recommend applying 1–2 pumps all over your face as the last step in your skin-care routine before makeup for a smooth finish and glow. To use Dew Drops as a skincare highlighter, gently pat “a drop of dew” on top of makeup on the high points of the face! Check out our social media for more glow hacks!

Why do I need niacinamide in my skincare routine?

Niacinamide is a multi-beneficial skin care ingredient that helps to illuminate skin instantly and overtime, visibly brighten hyperpigmentation and dark spots, minimize the appearance of pores and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. We believe this multi-tasking ingredient should be in everyone’s routine. 

Is Dew Drops suitable for acne prone or oily skin?

Absolutely, niacinamide helps control oil production, making it a star ingredient for those with acne-prone skin! This mica-free emulsion creates a lightweight, buildable texture that quickly absorbs, and is suitable for all skin types including oily or acne prone. Dew Drops can be used as a hydrating highlighting serum before moisturizer or as the last step of your routine to add an instant glossy finish!

Is it non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic?

While the formula is not tested non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic, we made sure all ingredients are gentle for all skin types. Niacinamide’s pore-refining properties make this mica-free formula a great option for those with oily or acne-prone skin who want a dewy glow without worrying about breakouts!

Is this formula safe for the eye area?

Yes! It has been clinically ophthalmologist tested to be safe for the eye area. For a glossy eye look, dab a pea-sized amount to the center of the eyelid and blend out. The formula can also be used under the eye area before concealer.

Does niacinamide cancel out vitamin c?

It’s myth-busting time! This is actually a common myth spread throughout the beauty industry. Niacinamide and Vitamin C are both powerful antioxidants that actually become more effective when used in the same routine!

What % of the formula is niacinamide?

Our Dew Drops formula utilizes a proprietary % of niacinamide to help brighten the look of hyperpigmentation/dark spots, minimize the appearance of pores, and target fine lines and wrinkles!

What % of the formula is watermelon?

Our formula contains a % of watermelon that is proprietary to Glow Recipe!

What is the recyclability of the packaging?

Every part of this packaging is recyclable. The glass bottle and the entire carton can be recycled curbside. The plastic cap and pump can be recycled through our TerraCycle partnership. Just remember to rinse out your glow goodies before recycling!
