Glossier Review

If you follow me on Instagram, or read last week’s recap post you probably know that I’ve recently hopped on the Glossier band wagon.  Glossier is a makeup and skincare brand that prioritizes keeping skin healthy.  It was hard to miss the their beautiful instagram and I was so excited when I received a few products for Christmas.  They don’t call it “cult beauty” for nothing.  After trying out the products I got for Christmas I really wanted to try more.  I was so excited to check out the showroom in New York last week, where they were selling all of their products so I got to pick up some new stuff. 

One of my friends texted me last week asking about the Glossier products because she too had seen them online and thought they looked interesting but didn’t know anyone who had actually tried them yet.  That made me realize that maybe many of y'all have been seeing Glossier products talked bout online, but didn’t know if they were really worth trying.  I’m hoping this review of the products I’ve tried so far helps you if you’re thinking of trying out the brand.  

Balm Dotcom This skin salve has been great because it’s really moisturizing and small enough o bring in your bag whereever you go.  I’ve been putting the salve on my lips and cuticles before I go to bed every night and they haven’t felt dry at all. 

Priming Moisturizer I love this product because it combines two products (or steps from my makeup routine) into one.  It’s extremely moisturizing without being sticky and the moisturizer settles into the skin quickly and nicely after applying.  I’ve been using this almost every morning after washing my face. 

Priming Moisturizer Rich This is a new product that was just released the day before I went to the showroom.  This is very similar to the normal Priming Moisturizer, but it;s a thicker more hydrating formula, plus it comes in a jar instead of a tube.  I’ve been using this after washing my face at night.  I want to point out that this also doesn’t get sticky or oily even if you apply a little too much.  

The Supers This is one of the things I was most excited to get from glossier.  The 3-pack of sereums (also available individually) work to purify, add bounce or glow. Honestly, I feel like they are a little disappointing.  I haven’t noticed a true difference when I use them versus when i don’t.  I’m still using them at night before I go to bed, but I can’t tell if they’ve really had any effect on my skin.  

Boy Brow I wasn’t planning on trying this product because I have tried Benefit’s version of this product and didn’t like it.  But I heard so many positive things about it, I thought I’d give it a shot.  I learned that the product was inspired by mustache wax and uses a similar formula rather than using fibers as many other eyebrow products like this do.  I am presently surprised with Boy Brow and I can see why so many people like it.  I think it does a great job of making your eyebrows look fuller rather than just darker.  

Milky Jelly Cleanser I was excited to try this cleanser and so far haven’t found it to be too special.  I don’t hate it, but I don’t think I’d repurchase it.  I use the St Ives Apricot Scrub whenever I’m in the shower, which is a pretty rough exfoliant.  This cleanser is the complete opposite of that, and well of course it is because it’s a cleanser, but when I use this product it feels more like I’m rubbing lotion across my face. It doesn’t really lather, but it did a good job of removing my makeup and cleaning my face, so I guess it does it’s job. 

Haloscope Highlighters are everything in your makeup routine these days.  I think that this highlighter is really fun and great if you’re looking for a dewy look as it isn’t a powder. It’s really moisturizing and obviously highlights your cheekbones or wherever you choose to put it. 

Perfecting Skin Tint I actually really love this foundation.  It’s perfect for days where you want to let your skin breathe, but don’t want to not wear anything.  I think this would be the best foundation for the summer since it’s so breathable and light, but I have enjoyed wearing it in the winter too.  If you like something that has full coverage or is build-able, this is not the foundation or you.  But if you’re looking for something natural and light, check it out!
