The watermelon beauty buys Harry Styles would totally want you to try
Do it for Harry

Had Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” playing on a loop in your head the last few weeks? You’re definitely not alone (and may we say, your taste is impeccable – it’s a track).
Honestly, it’s fitting that the fruit doubles as a superstar soother in the skincare arena; because after witnessing Mr. Styles lovingly caressing pieces of fruit in the song’s already iconic video, we’re definitely going to need something to ease the flush – our cheeks are hot just thinking about it.
Saucy innuendos aside though, the tune has reminded the world just how wonderful watermelon really is, and the skin, makeup, hair and fragrance products inspired by it are no exception.
We’ve rounded up the very best of them, so shop away (in the name of indirectly supporting Styles, of course) - and if you feel inclined to replace the ‘watermelon sugar high’ lyrics with ‘watermelon beauty buys’ in your next post-purchase rendition, we see absolutely no issue with that. In fact, it's highly encouraged.
Mews Collective Watermelon Crush Candle
Scent your space with a fresh fruity fragrance courtesy of this dreamy Aussie-made candle. It opens with sweet, juicy watermelon (shocker, we know), then goes gourmand with a blend of vanilla and caramel.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner
The latest launch from the brand’s highly ‘gram-abble watermelon range, this ultra-gentle toner exfoliates and balances skin while also offering some serious hydrating and soothing action.
Sephora Collection Watermelon Dry Shampoo
Nothing says ‘clean hair’ like the fresh, fruity scent of shampoo, it’s true, but this sweet-smelling dry option will help you fake it, absorbing excess oils and eliminating any ‘I haven’t washed in a week’ odours.
Too Faced Watermelon Slice Face & Eye Palette
If the fact that the shades (a brilliant mix of neutrals and colours, by the way) are served up in the shape of a slice of watermelon doesn’t convince you, we’ll bet the sweet fruity fragrance will.
Zoella Fruits Watermelon Lip Oil
Enriched with a conditioning blend of sweet almond, jojoba and argan oils, and powered with an irresistible watermelon scent, this hydrating lip oil could probably even draw Styles himself in for a smooch.
St Tropez Gradual Tan Watermelon Infusion Moisture Miracle Body Lotion
Get ready for this watermelon-scented gradual glow-booster to completely nix your notions of the dodgy smells associated with tanning. And hey, the glossy golden glow it delivers doesn’t hurt either.
Revolution Skincare x Jake–Jamie Watermelon Hydrating Face Mask
Swap dehydration for dewiness with this skin-quenching mask. Loaded with watermelon extract (and smelling exactly like a slice of the real stuff) it’s a treat for both your skin and your senses.
Ciaté London Watermelon Burst Primer
This skin-prepping primer teams watermelon extract with hydrating hyaluronic acid and soothing vitamin E to create the ultimate complexion-calming cocktail, ideal for reducing redness before base.
