New In | Glossier

Earlier this year I started hearing a lot of buzz about Glossier, the beauty brand launched by the creator of the blog Into The Gloss.  Tempted by the sleek packaging, the dewy skinned models on the site, and a $5 off promo code, I decided to give the brand a try.  They launched their Creamy Cleanser this January to rave reviews, so I though I would try that and the moisturizer to see what the buzz was all about.

Creamy Milky Jelly Cleanser
The name pretty much sums up this product.  Its a creamy gel cleanser that’s gentle on the skin but tough on dirt and makeup.  I put one pump in my hand and lather on a wet face to cleanse or I use two pumps on dry skin as a makeup remover.  Since I’m trying to make this guy last, I haven’t been using it as a makeup remover that often.  I usually use it as a makeup remover on my minimal makeup/non-waterproof mascara days.  Mostly I use it as a morning cleanser and it has been amazing start to my morning.  It leaves my skin clean and refreshes.  Did I mention I love this stuff?

Priming Moisturizer
When I originally saw this on the site, I was intrigued but a bit skeptical.  It’s a lightweight moisturizer that claimed to prime the skin.  I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did.  It sinks in quickly and leaves the skin plump and dewy.  I usually apply a dime sized amount all over and then another just on my cheeks.  My makeup not only goes on smoother in the morning but it also wears so much better throughout the day.  The only downside I can think of it s that it doesn’t come with SPF.  I guess thats not a bad thing for lazy days in or layering under a tinted moisturizer with sun protection.  Normally I combine it with my La Roche Posay Hydraphase UV Intense SPF 20 and the two work great together.

I fell in love with these two products so much that I put in a second order for the Coconut Balm Dotcom and the Face Mist.  I’ve been using both and loving them.  Spoiler Alert:  I won’t go into too much detail about the balm and the mist because you may see them popping up in a favorites post soon.

  3. I've only tried the Coconut Balm Dotcom, but I can't live without it - its my favorite nail treatment, and a pretty good lip balm as well. I really want to try more from the brand!

    1. I haven't used it as anything other than a lip balm but I bet it would be nice as a nail treatment.

  4. I've never tried anything from this brand, but heard some fab things about it! Both these products seem great, I love the sound of the moisturiser especially. :) x It's a shame that it doesn't come with an SPF, but here in the UK we don't really get any sunlight anyways so I guess that wouldn't be a problem, lol. :D <3
