Leejiham Vita Propolis Serum
J.One Jelly Pack
Huxley Oil Essence
J.One Hana Cream

Glow Recipe is a site created for skincare lovers who love natural, harsh-free beauty products and the latest skincare trends straight from Korea.  Having tested these products for a few months now, I can give you a little review about each of them.

First off we have the Leejiham Vita Propolis Serum.  This serum is created with 50% propolis extract and 20% multivitamins, so not only is this good for your skin but perfect for creating that "glow" or "gwang" (dewy glow in Korean).  The texture of this serum feels really great (not sticky or too runny), and you will see an instant glow once you tap it into the skin.  It feels very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin.  Definitely give this one a try.

The J.One Jelly Pack is definitely a one-of-a-kind product.  It's known as the "multi-tasker" or "makeup gripper" and here is why.  After cleansing your face, take a pump of this unique textured jelly and tap it all over your face.  It'll hydrate, firm and prime your face (all in one) for the next step which can be a sunscreen or BB cream, whatever your preference may be.  Honestly I wasn't impressed with it at first mainly due to the sticky texture of the jelly.  However because of its rave reviews, I knew I had to give it another try.  I think the key is tap tap tapping it into the skin until the stickiness subsides and you have a smooth canvas.  I have noticed my makeup staying on longer and seeing less oil especially on my T-zone area.  Definitely a unique product to try.

The next product is also another unique product because it's an oil and essence all in one.  The Huxley Oil Essence is a game changer in my book.  Whether we're in the colder months or the summer season, I always want my skin to feel hydrated, really dislike the dry feeling on my skin.  So this product is perfect since you get a very lightweight oil and essence in one step.  It seeps into your skin wonderfully, texture is amazing and the scent is heavenly.  The only issue that I have with this product would be the dropper not performing well as I think it should.  I have to kind of work with it to pick up and dispense the product, so I'm hoping Huxley can somehow fix that problem in the future.  Overall I love this oil-essence so much that I know I'll be repurchasing this in the future!

The J.One Hana Cream is a nourishing, anti-aging cream that comes in capsules (little round balls). It includes a little spatula for you to scoop out one capsule and "Hana" in korean means one.  One capsule is all you need.  You crush the ball into the palms of your hands or sometimes I crush it with my fingertips then spread onto your skin.  It's a little heavy for me for daytime use but it's perfect as a night cream in my opinion.  It's a fun product to try!

Sephora now carries some of the Glow Recipe products so that is something to check out as well!
