product review: Glossier
According to Glossier, “Skin is in…”
And I think that they’re right.
Before visiting NYC, I heard countless reviews about Glossier from other bloggers and youtubers, all of them raving about Glossier’s skincare line / products.
“What even is this Glossier,” I thought to myself.
I decided to visit their website and do some research. I was immediately in love with their product design and packaging. (I always appreciate some clean and simple packaging.) This was about a week before we left for NYC, so I was so excited to find out that the Glossier showroom was in lower Manhattan.
Let me tell you, the Glossier showroom is definitely an experience and I loved every minute of it. They don’t call it the most Instagram worthy spot for no reason.
First, all of the workers wear their iconic dusty pink jumpsuit. L O V E it.
Then, they have each product set up and you are able to test every.single.one.
After looking online, I knew that I wanted to try the Milky Jelly Cleanser, Mint Balm Dotcom, and the Super Glow serum. After trying them out at the store, I bought all three and I have been loving them ever since.
The Milky Jelly Cleanser is so light and refreshing. Something I love about their products is that they are multi-purpose. You can pretty much make them what you want them to be. For example, with the Milky Cleanser, you can either use it on dry skin to dissolve makeup, or on wet skin to start the day. I don’t wear much makeup, so I use it more as a cleanser to start my day and feel refreshed. Even better, it is gentle on your eyes because it is made out of the same ingredients found in contact lens solution. Overall 10/10.
Mint Balm Dotcom is just as amazing as the cleanser. I love a lip balm that leaves my lips feeling cool and moisturized, and this product does just that. You can use any of the balm dotcoms on your lips or anywhere that needs some moisturizing, such as your cuticles. Balm Dotcom is available in the following flavors: cherry, original, rose, mint, coconut, and their new flavor ~ BIRTHDAY ~
Saving the best for last with the Super Glow serum. This serum is designed with Vitamin C (brightens) and Magnesium (energizes). Glossier totally understands our problems with this product line. Their three serums are made to lift us on our dullest days. You can choose from Super Glow (for when you’re feeling dull), Super Bounce (for when you’re feeling dry), and Super Pure (for when you’re feeling stressed). Honestly, I think we could all invest in one of these to help brighten our mood on our most stressful days. I love the way that Super Glow absorbs into my skin with its water like texture. It always leaves my skin feeling vibrant and refreshed.
As if that’s not enough to convince you to try out Glossier, their products come in reusable pink pouches with adorable sticker packs. The pouches are so popular that they sell them separately online! I have been reusing mine as travel pouches to carry my Glossier products on-the-go.
Overall, I highly recommend trying out Glossier. Everything about their products is unique and innovative, whether it be their packaging, design, purpose, or ingredients.
