What Happened When We Put Glow Recipe’s Viral Hue Drops to the Test

If you’re on the #beautytok side of  TikTok, you’ve definitely seen Glow Recipe's Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops doing the rounds. They went viral before the product was even available, thanks to influencers such as Mikayla and Aysha Harun. For the uninitiated, the hue drops are an updated version of the beloved OG Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops; a must-have in every clean girl aesthetic skincare routine. (Fun fact: the first version is so popular that one sells every 12 seconds, according to the beauty brand.) 

With spring right around the corner, the new and improved hue drops are a multi-use serum with ethically-sourced gold and bronze pearls. Not only do they give your skin a warm glow, but the A+ formula improves your skin, too, making these last few days of winter that much brighter. Thankfully, the wait for the arrival of the updated Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops is finally over, so let’s get into the facts and get the tea from the Hypebae Beauty team.

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops: Why The Hype?

The hue drops consist of hero ingredients such as niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B, and antioxidant that evens out dark spots, balances sebum and minimizes pores. Centella Asiatica, more commonly known as Tiger Grass, calms down the skin barrier and decreases the appearance of redness. While hyaluronic acid keeps the skin feeling bouncy and hydrated. Gold & Bronze Pearls add a sheer bronze tint.

Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops: Three Honest Reviews

Sha Spencer, Beauty editor 

I love how lightweight and moisturizing this serum feels and that it doesn't feel sticky once it dries down. I'm excited to use this under a skin tint to get that glowy "your skin but better" look! I've also used this on my chest and neck to give it a subtle glow while reaping the added skincare benefits – a major plus.

The hue drops are the last step in my everyday skincare routine, and I love how they add a delicate glow to my skin. I also love to apply the serum on my chest for a bronzed look. The perfect summer product in my book.

Since I'm already a fan of the OG Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, I was very excited to try the hue drops. I love how it makes my skin feel moisturized but dewy, and has a buildable glow. For application, I liked rubbing the product onto my hand first for easy control.
