Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask review worth the hype

Regular readers will know that I love the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask, which makes my skin look bright, calm, and even on the morning after.

That's why I was so excited when Glow Recipe came out a Watermelon Glow Jelly sheet mask! Read on to find out if it was worth the hype...

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask

Unfortunately this product was a big ol' miss for me. It was really disappointing in a couple of ways.

1) Sheet mask shape

The sheet mask itself seems like it's made for people with much smaller faces than average. I know that sounds weird, but that's the best way I can describe it. I don't have a massive head by any means, and it left a good inch of space on my forehead uncovered. It also was too small around the eyes and wouldn't sit against the skin around my cheeks and eyes. It also didn't cover all of my nose.

When I removed it from the packaging, I found it extremely difficult to unfold, and the jelly texture was rather flimsy, meaning that it tore very easily when trying to lift it out of its little sleeve.

2) Results

I left the mask on for about 12 minutes (a sort of halfway point between the recommended 10-15). It was quite uncomfortable because of the fit--although this probably won't be as much of an issue for you if you have a smaller nose! When I removed the mask, it had left quite a bit of serum on afterwards (which I like), so I just gently patted that in and went to bed.

The next morning, my skin was unfortunately really irritated--not like I'd had an allergic reaction (which is usually fairly instantaneous for me), but just like it really hadn't agreed with my skin. It felt congested and was red and blotchy all over. By the evening, I had new spots cropping up.

Is it worth the hype?

In my opinion, the Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask is definitely not worth the hype because of the fit issues (if you look at the pictures of the models wearing it on their website, you can see what I mean about the fit on the forehead and nose!) and because it caused so much discomfort, blotchiness, and congestion on my skin.

Have you guys tried the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask? Has it worked well for you?
