The Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum is one of those super popular icon in the making products in the buzzy skincare world. We are constantly inundated with requests for a comparable and the product is frequently on our most popular searched list. As we’ve said time and time again, price is not the only reason to do a comparison search. Sometimes you can’t get a product in your area, beauty distribution is notoriously tight. Sometimes you just want to try something new. The world’s your ocean, search for some alternatives!

What’s in the Glass Skin Refining Serum?

Water (Aqua), Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Madecassoside, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Acetyl Octapeptide-3, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Sodium Carbomer, Beta-Glucan, Saccharide Isomerate, Phytic Acid, Sucrose, Asiaticoside, Caprylyl Glycol

The key ingredients here are skin brightening niacinamide, antioxidant and soothing madecassoside, antioxidant asiaticoside and skin identical sodium hyaluronate. While sodium hyaluronate is super common in thousands of products, there were only 4 serums in our database of over 37,000 products that contained niacinamide, madecassocide, asiaticoside and an acetyl peptide. And out of the 4, only 1 offers a price advantage over the Glass Refining Serum. The amazing alternative discovery is none other than the Manyo Factory Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule.

Manyo Factory Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule vs Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum

Let’s take a look at what is in the Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule:
Bifida Ferment Lysate, Butylene Glycol, Bifida Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, Lactococcus Ferment Lysate, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Glycerin, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate, Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Potassium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Leontopodium Alpinum Callus Culture Extract, Cutibacterium Granulosum Ferment Extract Filtrate(5,000ppm), Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Pentylene Glycol, Squalane, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Copper Tripeptide-1, Tromethamine, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Propanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dextrin, Water, Caffeine, Benzyl Glycol, Sodium Phytate, Hydrolyzed Algin, Xanthan Gum, Epigallocatechin Gallate, Carbomer, Physalis Alkekengi Calyx Extract, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Adenosine

This is quite a long INCI list, at least compared to the Peach & Lily product. But let's break it down a bit further. So while the Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule notably contains 72% bifida ferment lysate, an ingredient not contained in the Glass Skin Refining Serum, this is just one of the added bonus ingredients as the ingredient list of Manyo Factory Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule is much longer. As for a direct comparison to the Glass Skin Refining Serum product, it contains 12 out of 23 of the ingredients in the Glass Skin Serum. Most interestingly, they both contain what is referred to as a “botox-like” peptide. The Glass Skin Refining Serum contains Acetyl Octapeptide-3 which is a newer (and sometimes said to be less proven) version of the famous "Botox-like" peptide called Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 or Argireline that the Manyo Factory product contains. Both products claim to hydrate, calm, brighten and firm skin and honestly with so much overlap we think Manyo Factory Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule is definitely a viable alternative to try out in real life.

Other notable comparable alternatives:

There are 2 other notable comparables for the Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum. These were the other 2 serums out of 37,000 products that contain niacinamide, madecassoside, asiaticoside and a “botox-like” peptide. Both of these products in the prestige category are more expensive but arguably also make more far reaching anti-aging claims beyond the brightening and soothing claims of the Glass Skin Refining Serum.

Slurp Hyaluid is a topical fluid of biological compounds focused on rebooting functions and refilling molecules that declines with age to restore and preserve a young skin anatomy.

The Venn Probiotics Cica Complex Biome Booster is a skin microbiome focused soothing and lifting restorative serum.
