Any beauty product that has to do with food automatically piques our interest. But there are only so many edible-inspired beauty items that have us feeling refreshed when we use them (meaning there’s more to them than just a mouth-watering scent). Well, watermelon beauty has the power to do just this — the fruit actually does beneficial things, and it makes us feel revitalized in an instant. Ahead, find seven of our favorite watermelon-inspired beauty products and why they make us feel so fresh and new.
For a makeup prep that will beat the odds, Milk’s Watermelon Serum provides the softest prime to get your skin plump and ready for makeup. This lightly scented stick will leave your face just the right amount of sticky that will help keep your makeup from smudging and slipping throughout the day.
For a feel-good blow dry, this FHI Watermelon Hair Dryer is definitely one of our favorite fruit-themed accessories. The super powerful blow dryer does an excellent job of drying just about any hair type, and even better — it’s portable and perfect for travel (and of course, is covered in watermelons).
Unless you live under an Instagramless-rock, you’ll know that jelly masks are all the rage. This watermelon-infused jelly sheet mask from Glow Recipe is certainly one to try, as it works to hydrate and smooth your skin thanks to watermelon extracts and hyaluronic acid.
A gorgeous matte watermelon lippie is something that just about every gal needs in her makeup stash. The Super Cliquey Matte Lipstick in In The Red by NYX has the pigment and satin-matte finish you’ve always wanted and will literally give you a mouth-watering finish.
If you’re in search of a hint of watermelon without too much commitment, this tinted balm from Winky Lux is going to become your new go-to. We love how moisturizing this formula is and are obsessed with the cool transparent neon bullet.
For a finishing watermelon-esque touch, we love the Lancôme L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in Be Bright. It’s super creamy and makes your lips feel hydrated — all while giving you the ultimate watermelon-worthy glossy shine.
