Serum Saturday – @peachandlily Glass Skin Refining Serum

October 24, 2020

In my recent @ultabeauty haul (, I mentioned that I finally picked up the @peachandlily Glass Skin Refining Serum ($39 for 1.35 ounces – after having had it in my shopping cart for months!

What it claims:

🔘 Go makeup and filter-free with this “super juice” serum, which delivers everything you need for picture-perfect skin

🔘 Expertly blended with potent earth-born and high-tech beautifying ingredients, you’ll uncover skin that is poreless, translucent, and luminous like a pane of glass

🔘 Silky, weightless, and instantly-absorbing, it helps hydrate, calm, brighten and firm, delivering more dramatic results with continued use

My experience:

🔘 Even though it doesn’t explicitly say it’s for under makeup use, that has been how I’ve been predominantly using it.

👍🏻 I love the texture. It definitely goes on like a serum, but it does, like it says it will, absorb quickly and dries to a silky feeling finish.

👍🏻 While I used to only wear matte foundations because of my oily t-zone, I have been more interested in satin or dewy finishes because I think it makes my skin look more youthful and flawless. What I love about this serum is that I can wear it under a matte foundation and it makes it so that it blends out with such ease, but doesn’t make me look greasy.

👍🏻👎🏻 When I used this in conjunction with my more dewy foundations, it did make the oils slightly more prominent, so I will be sticking to pairing this with matte products.

👍🏻 I have some foundations I love, but that don’t conceal my pores as much as I’d like them to, so I use this with those because it does a really great job of minimizing the look of them.

My verdict?

I’m really disappointed I didn’t try this product sooner! I used to have to keep my matte foundations only for use in the summer because my winter skin was a tad too dry for them, but now, when I use this product, I don’t have any issues with clinging or caking! Plus, on my no makeup days, it really just makes my skin look more even and hydrated.
