Glossier is a brand that's been on my radar for a while now. I've always loved that its a simple, curated beauty line that's geared toward the girl on the go. The line features several products from a gentle cleanser to cream highlighter. I could never say that I have a simple beauty routine, however, I envy girls that do. They seem so free and relaxed and still ridiculously radiant, gah! So, in an effort to be cool, simple and chic, I placed an order on Glossier.com.
The first product that I popped into my cart was the original Balm Dotcom. They offer several flavors, or formulas, but I wanted to start with the classic. What did I think? LOVE IT! It's a hydrating balm that's lightweight on the lips, and is so not gloopy. I normally put it on in the morning when I'm doing my makeup for the day, however, I have worn it overnight and its been amazing for keeping my lippies hydrated then, too. Since it is a universal salve, I've massaged it into my cuticles, my elbows and even where I burned myself with a curling iron to help hydrate and nourish that skin as well. I love how versatile this balm truly is.
Boy Brow was the next goodie that I had to pick up. I picked up the shade brown, and I've found it to be a nice cool, medium tone. It has a petite brush that makes it a breeze to swipe through your brows. The tinted gel formula helps define your brows while giving a natural amount of hold, which I've really enjoyed.
Since everyone and their mother is highlight crazy, I had to pick up Haloscope. Haloscope is Glossier's cream highlighting stick, and I opted for the paler Quartz shade. I had never used a cream highlight before and it took me a minute to get used to it, honestly. However, once I played around with the product, I loved how beautifully it would meld into the skin with your fingertips or a beauty blender. I've been using it in a C-shape around my cheek bone and eye area, and I love the natural gleam it gives. It doesn't sit heavily on top of my oily skin, which was a concern, and it doesn't overly hydrate and slide down my face by lunch time. I have enjoyed how it has enhanced my own skin, and how radiant clients have looked when I've used it on them. This is a stunning, easy to use cream highlight!
The product that completed my Glossier order was their ever popular face wash, Milky Jelly Cleanser. I had heard the YouTuber, Chelsea Wears, rave and rave about this cleanser, so when I ran out of my current face wash, I picked this puppy up. This is a very mild, and gentle cleanser that is great at removing makeup, even waterproof formulas. I do think my oily skin needs a little bit more of a cleansing factor in the summer time here in North Carolina. But, I have been using it to lightly cleanse my face in the morning which I've enjoyed, and I really like that it's fragrance free, too. I feel like this mild cleanser would be great for sensitive skin types and those who wear a more natural level of makeup on a daily basis.
After a couple of months of playing around with these goodies, I have to say that I'm super impressed. The line is straight forward, chic and cruelty-free. Glossier has a reasonable price point and an awesome, Boss Babe in charge. What's not to love?
