This is my all-time, holy grail, ride or die serum...and I’m out 😭 Here’s a brief overview of my skin before I get into the product review: My skin is not problematic; I get a breakout during ‘that time’ of the month and I have a wee bit of redness in my cheek area. My skin is however incredibly, painfully dry. I can’t use anything that isn’t suitable for dry skin bc, if I do, my skin will feel like it going to crack. The Glass Skin Refining Serum ($39) created by Peach and Lily, is serum that I use every 👏🏻 single 👏🏻 day. I’m seriously bummed that I cannot go out an repurchase this atm. The cocktail of ingredients is amazing for people with incredibly dry skin - it is good for all skin types though. ✨ This serum has a hyaluronic acid complex that draws in hydration and deeply hydrates every single layer of my skin by using long-chain, medium-chain, and short chain hyaluronic acid. ✨ Peach and Lily included niacinamide; an ingredient used to reduce inflammation in the skin. Niacinamide, because it reduces inflammation, is a really amazing ingredient for people with ance-prone skin It’s also and antioxidant, so it’s also a wonderful anti-aging ingredient. When I use this product, my skin glows brighter and my skin feels bouncier! My skin drinks it up! I am constantly trying new skincare products, and I very rarely repurchase unless I am absolutely obsessed. This will be one of the first things purchase once quarantine lifts!
AllisonWyattMaybe u can order it online. Idk where u live. It may not be available online. If u can order from ulta, they have it there and probably on their own website. Hope this helps. Thx for the review. I just ordered one of these the other day. Haven’t started it yet tho.

My quick (aka lazy) AM routine ☀️
This is a super curated, quick skincare routine I’ve been doing lately. After years of testing different products I think I finally have a clear idea of my skin truly thrives on. I have combination, dehydrated skin and I tend to get uneven texture on my cheeks. I’ve found a more minimal approach with the amount of products I use seems to work best for me, these are the products I’m using: COSRX - Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence This is my favorite essence ever, it leaves my skin looking plump and hydrated, I use this day and night and it seriously lasts forever. CosRx can do no wrong. I have a more detailed review already posted on my feed! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum I seriously cant recommend this enough, niacinamide is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare and I love this because it’s so good to treat unwanted texture. I kid you not, I noticed a difference in my skin texture and tone in like a week. Its a bit pricey but I would definitely repurchase. GOOD MOLECULES - Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer WOW. This is a new favorite, I absolutely adore this moisturizer! It’s so good, it has many skin loving ingredients and it blurs the appearance of pores but it’s not heavy at all. My makeup wears beautifully over it and it’s only $14! Gifted, but all opinions are my own. SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O Glow Vitamin C and Turmeric Face Oil I just started using this oil again and I have to say I have a new found love for it, I’m not sure if it’s the mix of this and the Good Molecules primer moisturizer but it is seriously beautiful. It brightens my complexion almost instantly! It’s a great product but a bit pricey so maybe I’ll look for a dupe! And of course I seal it all in with a generous dose of SPF, I’ll make a post of my favorites soon!
Texture eraser 🙏🏼
My favorite niacinamide serum for sure! It has an amazing light texture that sinks in and absorbs quickly, I’ve been using it for like half a year now and it’s done wonders for me, helps a lot with the irregular texture on my cheeks and leaves me bright and plump 💦 It’s a bit up there in price but if you can get it on sale I say go for it! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum
I have a love/hate relationship with vitamin C serums, but I’m definitely filing this Strawberry-C Serum from volition beauty in the “love” category. Powered by a strawberry derived form of vitamin C to brighten the skin, this baby doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or tacky, which is typically my biggest gripe with vitamin C based products. Strawberry-C contains strawberry fruit and seed extract, along with kakadu plum to reduce redness and hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate. The texture is lightweight and falls somewhere between a water and a gel consistency. It doesn’t take forever to absorb and plays well with makeup. The dropper is a bit tricky, but certainly not a dealbreaker. After daily use for the last couple of weeks, my skin looks bright and feels hydrated. I’ve seen a slight improvement in texture and redness as well. I haven’t noticed any change in my hyperpigmentation, but I will continue using this and post a full report in another couple of weeks. Overall, I’m thrilled that I’ve finally found a vitamin C serum that I can use regularly.
VOLITION-Strawberry-C Brightening Serum
One of my HG serums!
I’ve been using the Peach & Lily Glass skin refining serum for months now. It’s said to hydrate, brighten, and reduce inflammation from free radical damage. It contains peach extract, peptide complex, hyaluronic acid, and my personal favorite powerhouse ingredient - Niacinamide which helps reduce pores, inflammation and brighten skin. This product has really helped hydrate my skin before moisturizer. It has a clear think gel texture and is fragrance free which I love. It’s really helped with my redness and hyperpigmentation. I give this serum a 5/5 stars and will definitely be repurchasing when this ones gone!
PEACH & LILY-Glass Skin Refining Serum
Aveeno - MaxGlow Infusion Drops This serum is designed to give your that “yoga skin” look you’ve always dreamt of. It enhances your natural glow while locking in moisture for over 48 hours. Soy and kiwi are their featured ingredients. Soy helps moisturize, improve skin tone, texture and radiance. The serum’s texture is a little milky but it is very lightweight and it won’t make your skin look oily, which crucial because dewy shouldn’t feel or look oily. I like mixing it with my moisturizer in order to add that extra glow and hydration. (Mix it with an oil free moisturizer, otherwise it does get oily). I love the natural look it leaves on your skin. It’s also great for when your skin is going through dryness or redness. It soothes it nicely. Overall it’s been a good experience, it’s a fun serum to play with and it delivers what it claims to do. Nothing out of this world. I think I would recommend it if you’re into having a natural look but if that’s not your style, I probably would pass it because it isn’t all that cheap ($24). Is it worth it? It’s a hard call knowing that there are many serums that offer the same result for maybe less. I think it all goes back to personal preference. Maybe start with the smaller size.
Aveeno-MaxGlow Infusion Drops
Vitamin C Very Cherry Bright
The product: a 15% Vitamin C Serum with acerola cherry and hyaluronic acid. It claims to help brighten, firm and hydrate skin. My impressions: worked very well for my skin. It didn’t break me out which a lot of vitamin c serums do. It helps reduce a lot of texture on my forehead and also reduced some redness on my cheeks. It smells like cherries but once it’s on you don’t notice it. I wouldn’t say it’s tacky but as you rub it in you can feel it. It’s also hydrating for sure. How it worked for my dry skin: didn’t dry out my skin at all, it actually helped add another layer of moisture. Length of use: 4+ months Cost: $62 Recommend: yes! Especially if you can test out a mini or sample size! Repurchase: yes I started with a mini and the recently purchased a big one Overall rating: 5 out of 5 because it has taken me a while to find a vitamin c serum that works for me! I love the results I get from it. Doesn’t have a crazy smell and the price is kind of high but that’s why I recommend a mini first! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry
FARMACY-Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry
This vitamin C serum is unique because it’s derived from strawberries. I decided to try this one because they marketed that strawberries contain more vitamin c than oranges. I also liked that this is a stable form of vitamin c. This serum is supposed to brighten the complexion and provide radiance, hydration and an even skin tone. I found that this serum definitely brightens the skin. I’ve used it for about 6 months now, and I’m almost out of it. I love how lightweight this serum is and how quickly it sinks into the skin. It also contains kakadu plum to help luminosity and reduce the redness in the skin. I really enjoy this serum, I think a little bit goes a long way and it has glass packaging which makes it worth the $42 price tag. However, if you struggle with hyperpigmentation, you might want to invest in a different/stronger vitamin c. I don’t think this product evens the skin tone. If you’re new to vitamin c or just want a little boost in the overall brightness and hydration of the skin, I would recommend this.
VOLITION-Strawberry-C Brightening Serum
I’ve been including this Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum from Thisworks whenever I get to do my morning routine and I noticed one thing every after application is that it instantly plumps my skin. It features 2% Hyaluronic Acid complex with Vitamin C and Persian Silk Tree Extract to help dry and dull-looking skin that craves moisture. This is best for normal, dry, aging, mature skin. Upon checking the ingredients, I wouldn’t recommend this to people with sensitive skin - it contains some allergens like benzyl alcohol and fragrances. It may also trigger fungal acne. It has that typical vitamin c scent but subtler than the other serums I’ve tried. It absorbs quickly and I find that it works great under makeup. I didn’t experience any breakout but since I don’t wanna wait for bad things to happen.. and I had just opened another serum, I am considering using this more on the neck area. Though I still might use it on my face if I feel a bit adventurous. Haha should I still use it?? 〰️
