HILARY SAYS REVIEW:
Peach & Lily Glass Skin refining serum claims to give glassy, poreless, luminous, translucent-looking, crystal-clear skin. Firstly, I wonder how they’re getting away with these outrageous claims, regulators should be on their backs. “Glassy, poreless, crystal-clear, translucent-looking skin”??? COME ON!!! Real skin has pores, creases, imperfections, and flaws, don’t let ridiculous claims like these make you have unrealistic expectations of your skin. Glass skin is not simply the desire to look youthful, its aim is to look unhuman.
It contains some pretty good ingredients:
Propanediol, a penetration enhancer, aids the penetration of active ingredients
It has a good percentage of Niacinamide (I’m guessing about 4-5%), which is known to help visibly improve the appearance of pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and dullness.
There is very little research on the benefits of Peach Extract, but it contains fatty acids Omega 3 and 6, which are great for maintaining the skin’s healthy barrier.
It contains Hyaluronic Acid in different molecule sizes, which is great for hydration at various layers of the skin.
Madecassoside, an antioxidant to help fight free radicals
Acetyl Octapeptide-3 – peptide complex composed of amino acids which help strengthen the skin’s barrier and stimulate skin cell growth/repair.
Asides the ridiculous claims, this is a decent product. I personally won’t buy it because I would rather use 10% niacinamide and a separate hydrating serum.
