The Glass Skin trend remains my best beauty trend from the Asian scene. Glass skin is when your skin is so healthy, plumped, and hydrated it looks and feels like glass. I already explained that the glass skin look is achieved by hydrating. That’s simply it. All you have to do is layer hydrating products until your skin resembles that of a glazed donut. That having been said, let’s dive into the best beauty products for glass skin.
My Favorite Products For Glass Skin
Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence: This cult favorite essence has now been upgraded to Intensive Moist with 90% fermented yeast. Fermented ingredients are the heart of Korean skincare. This essence is known to repair damage and even out skin tone in weeks. It also contains niacinamide which brightens and clarifies the skin. It’s no surprise that this has achieved holy grail status for a lot of people. This essence is also super lightweight and is recommended for daily use.
Laneige Cream Skin Refiner: Whew. Where do I even begin? This product is Hydration heaven. It is enough to leave the house with just this on your face. In the dryer months, I layer this under my gel cream and my skin never dries up. If you have dry or dehydrated skin and have to choose just one product for hydration, let it be this one. I’ll still put up a detailed review of this product. This product is extra special for a lot of reason. It hydrates so well because it is literally a moisturiser and toner mixed in one bottle. Seriously.
Peach and Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum: This serum works like magic. I’ve never had a product give me instant results like this one. A revolutionary mix of peach extract, niacinamide, East Asian Mountain Yam, madecassoside, peptides and hyaluronic acid. It hydrates, calms, brightens and firms skin. It sinks in immediately after application for radiant, dewy, and glassy skin. In fact, the entire glass skin set is a solid start to achieving glass.
Mamonde Rose Water Gel Cream: This very lightweight gel cream contains damask roses so you reap the benefits of soothing, refreshing, moisturizing effects of damask rose water. Goes on light without stickiness but reinforces the skin’s barrier for long-lasting hydration.
Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence: This product is perhaps the most popular Korean beauty product and holy grail for a lot of people and rightfully so. I hate to run out of this product. Snail mucin has the ability to repair dry patches, soothe breakouts and reduce hyperpigmentation and this product contains a whooping 96% of it. 96%! The instant glow this essences gives is unmatched. Snail mucin also contains hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid.
Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish: You know I have to mention sunscreen because it is simply too important. It is the most important. Most Korean beauty sunscreens are lightweight and hydrating but this is one of my faves. This mineral sunscreen is the perfect finish for the rest of your hydrating routine.
