Tina Chen Craig did not invent glass skin, but she is a shining (pun very much intended) example of the aspirational complexion made famous by Korean beauty connoisseurs. A cursory Google image query is all you need to see that the U BEAUTY founder possesses an incandescent glow. When we inquired as to how she gets this smooth, even-toned, lustrous skin, she asked for our addresses and dropped a few bottles in the mail.
It would be easy to just proclaim that this cream is amazing and sumptuous and makes skin super plump and dewy— all of which is true—but we would be remiss if we didn’t detail the incredible cocktail of ingredients that earned our testers’ devotion to this lush treat for the complexion: Long-chain hyaluronic acid forms a moisture reserve that hydrates skin for 48 hours (plus it plumps like crazy), oat extract calms and soothes, vitamin C fights free radicals and brightens skin tone, plant butters and oils deeply nourish and condition, and peptides improve barrier function for bouncier, more resilient skin. The VIOLET LAB confirmed it— this was “glass skin in a bottle.”
“The real glass skin, right here. I can’t explain it—this stuff is gentle and nourishing and magic: Any time I use it, my skin immediately emanates an otherworldly sheen that I barely want to cover up with makeup. And I love makeup!”
—SARAH BROWN, Executive Director, VIOLET LAB
“Loving this does-it-all product that hydrates, brightens, tones, smooths, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and pores. Layer it under sunscreen to improve skin texture.”
—JO STRETTELL, Makeup Artist
“Wow! My skin feels instantly hydrated and looks super glowy. It’s perfect for getting that glass-skin effect.”
—VERONICA SINCLAIR, Makeup Artist
Consider parched, brittle skin a thing of the past—U BEAUTY’s The SUPER Hydrator is VIOLET CODE APPROVED, available on THE SHELVES, and yours for the taking.
