‘Glass’ skin, a Korean beauty trend that emphasizes dewy, almost reflective skin, has captured the hearts of beauty enthusiasts in recent years and has stopped letting them go. Getting a glass skin doesn’t require loading a highlighter to make the face luminescent – it’s more about getting a clear complexion.
For those of us with far from perfect skin (like me), the idea of achieving this trend seemed far from reality. The same was true for Alicia Yoon, founder of Peach & Lily. Yoon has struggled with severe eczema all her life, and due to the specific needs of her skin, she decided to create a complete beauty line with transformation products suitable for all skin types. With a focus on the latest K-beauty trends and innovations, Peach & Lily offers everything from a cold infusion cream recovery stick ($ 28) that deflates and rejuvenates the eye area, to deep blemish microdards in peach slices ($ 9) that treats rashes quickly.
One of the brand’s most beloved products is the Glass Skin Discovery Kit ($ 39), which gives you everything you need to achieve clear, dewy skin while developing a healthy skincare routine. and easy. The kit includes the brand’s best-selling products that help you diet, regardless of your skin type or concerns. This four-step regimen includes a hydrating cleansing gel, wild dew toning treatment, glass skin serum, and matcha infused antioxidant cream.
“This routine was created specifically to work on all skin types – including for those with eczema and other difficult skin problems, from rosacea to persistent rashes, “Yoon told POPSUGAR. Aggressive levels of the active ingredients, the skin can either break out, either become reactive, and certainly too much for sensitive skin oil and silicones, you can rest easy knowing that your skin, no matter how sensitive, is being watched.
When I tried the cleansing gel for the first time, I immediately noticed the light texture. It was hydrating and refreshing on my skin and left a light, dreamy smell of chamomile. One thing I always pay attention to when using a new facial cleanser is if it takes off my mascara and that product has passed the test. Wild Dew Treatment Essence is the second step in the kit, and it helps remove any leftover makeup that the cleanser has missed. The next (and most popular) product in the kit is the Glass Skin Refining Serum. Being a huge fan of all serums, I couldn’t wait to try it out. One of the main ingredients in the serum is peach extract, which is not commonly found in other beauty products because it is difficult to extract. (Just a note that I found my skin looked a lot brighter when I layered it under my own Vitamin C serum, so that’s what I do.) The last and final step of the kit involves lathering your face with matcha pudding. This antioxidant-rich cream is made with, you guessed it, matcha to help plump skin while locking in moisture. This leaves the skin a bit dewy, so I suggest using a light foundation rather than a heavy one if you choose to wear foundation on top. While my skin still has a ways to go to become as “glassy” as I dreamed it would be, this kit has brought me closer to my goal than I ever thought possible.
Whether you suffer from dry skin, eczema, rashes or more, the Discovery Kit will target your concerns while giving you the luminescent glow you’ve been looking for. Each step of the routine complements itself, in part thanks to the advanced formulas and premium ingredients used that are suitable for all skin types. “And after years of ingredient research, trial and error, hands-on practice, I was able to transform the look and feel of my skin. I saw a huge difference in visibly skin. irritated to skin that started to look so clear it almost looked translucent.So when I created Peach & Lily, I wanted to help others be able to transform the look and feel of their skin as well Yoon said.
