Peach and Lily's Glass Skin Refining Serum (opens in new tab) is nothing short of a phenomenon. Few skincare products can boast a 25,000-strong waiting list of women who can't wait to snap it up. Fewer still have over 1,000 perfect reviews, have sold out 12 times since launch and are adored by beauty editors. 

So you'll be pleased to know that right now you can bag yourself a bargain as Peach and Lily's Glass Skin Refining Serum is currently 50% off at Ulta.

For the uninitiated, ‘glass skin’ is a term that describes exceptionally smooth, even-toned skin that is so lustrous and light-reflecting that it has the appearance of glass. It is also the main #skingoal of Korean skincare, where glass skin is most closely equated with a youthful glow. 

To that end, beauty insiders have praised the effects of the Glass Skin Refining Serum and what it calls its ‘Superskin Ingredients’ since its debut. That includes niacinamide (opens in new tab) to help calm inflammation; hyaluronic acid for hydration; East Asian mountain yam for added suppleness and peach extract, which is rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. These arm your skin with more bounce (and bounce back from irritants) making it one of the best moisturizers for dry skin (opens in new tab)

More impressive still is the fact that this hero product has stormed up the skincare charts despite not containing the usual suspect, retinol (opens in new tab).

One happy customer said, “It is my new holy grail! ...I use it twice a day and it makes my skin velvety smooth. I cannot recommend this enough! I also use it with the cleanser and the matcha moisturizer.”

While another praised its speedy effects. “I started using this consistently each morning and night. Within about one week I notice that my skin feels softer and smoother. My skin just looks all around better and healthier. I don’t usually see significant differences with skincare but I am very happy with this product!"

Tempted? Snap up the Glass Skin Refining Serum for just $19.50, instead of the usual $39 (and enjoy a free Glass Skin Water-Gel Moisturizer mini with any $30 Peach & Lily purchase). After all, our skin’s bumps and dark shadows aren’t fooling anyone on Zoom calls.
