Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series Review

It's a long journey to find the perfect skincare products for your skin. It will cost you a lot of money, purging, and disappointments before you find "THE ONE". I've been there. I usually change my skincare products without even finishing some of them due to ineffectiveness. There are times that we find that one skincare product we love, but it's too expensive! Thank goodness. Nina of Colourette Cosmetics released a skincare line this 2019 that really sparked interest in the beauty community. She created the skincare company, Fresh Formula that offers quality skincare products for a lower cost.

Fresh Formula is a skincare company that first launched with only 3 skincare set to offer. They offer vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free skincare sets for oily (acne-prone) skin, dry skin, and dull (combination) skin.

Fresh Formula Blemish Rescue Series for Oily/Acne-Prone Skin

Fresh Formula Moisture Boost Series for Dry Skin

Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series for Dull/Combination Skin

I remember during their launch, I was one of those who waited for exactly 12AM to check out my own skincare set. That was one of the best things I did because since then, I finally bid my old skincare routine adieu! I have "combination" skin type, and so I tried their Glass Skin Series to see if it will really bring glow to my dull skin. Here I am hoping to help you with deciding if you should buy their Glass Skin Series

The skincare set is packaged in a pink box that contains all the information you need like the product ingredients/actives, skincare steps, and product details.

Milky Glow Illuminating Facial Wash (100ml)

Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series Review - Milky Glow Illuminating Facial Wash

My favorite in the set. The product itself is pink with a hint of milk-like liquid at the bottom of the bottle. I usually shake the product for maximum results. I love how the facial wash smells! It isn't overwhelming. It smells milky and... clean. This is perfect for those people who have a sensitivity to smells.

I use the facial wash the most. There are times that I just feel like washing my face and going to bed (I'm lazy) but still, I can see results. My face looks and feels brighter than before.

Rosy Glow Face Tonic/Toner (60ml)

Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series Review - Rosy Glow Face Tonic

You'll surely notice that this toner doesn't sting, and this is one of the best things I like about this product. It doesn't make your skin feel tight, which is a sign that it is not too harsh for your skin. The smell is nice too. There's no overwhelming smell.

Morning Glow Brightening Serum SPF 45 (20ml)

Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series Review - Morning Glow Brightening Serum SPF 45

I love that this serum has SPF. No need to apply another layer of sunscreen. I don't usually wear sunscreen because I don't like that it feels sticky on my face. This one doesn't feel sticky at all. Plus, it doesn't leave any white cast when I get my picture taken with flash!

Repairing Glow Repair Serum (20ml)

Fresh Formula Glass Skin Series Review - Golden Glow Repair Serum

This is the only product in this set that I have mixed feelings for. The product performs well, yes. But... it has glitter. I hate glitter in my skincare. I feel like it would clog my pores. I gave this a second chance - I noticed that it didn't do any harm on my skin. No clogged pores and harm on my eyes but still, I wish they would remove the glitter.

How do I use Fresh Formula Skincare Set? 
Basing on the skincare steps they provided on the box:


  1. Milky Glow Illuminating Facial Wash
  2. Rosy Glow Face Tonic/Toner
  3. Morning Glow Brightening Serum SPF 45
  4. My favorite non-Fresh Formula moisturizer

Final Thoughts
I love this skincare set. I'm now on my 3rd box and I'm not planning on changing my skincare set anytime soon. Take note though: At first, it's normal to experience purging. My skin was purging in the first 2 weeks. It would fade away after a while, depending on how quickly your skin adjusts to the product. You can see the difference between purging and breakouts below:

  • The set is fairly priced considering its amazing performance
  • The product did bring glow to my skin
  • No need to mix and match brands and skincare products
  • Cruelty-free, vegan, and paraben-free
  • Locally-made in the Philippines
  • Smells good, and clean (no overpowering smell)
  • Products will only last a month (except for the facial wash)
  • Each product is expensive if bought individually
  • The Repairing Glow Repair Serum has glitter
