Glossier: First Impressions

Glossier

[contains affiliate links] Hello, class! Recently, a colleague expressed to me how much she was loving products from Glossier. In case you haven’t heard about this company, Glossier is a beauty line with an aesthetic of natural, glowing skin. While they sell many of their products individually, they also have these really cute combo packages called Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Phase 1 is Glossier’s skincare set. It includes their Milky Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, Balm Dotcom and Perfecting Skin Tint (in your desired shade). The Glossier Phase 2 set is more makeup-oriented. It includes their Boy Brow (brow gel), Stretch Concealer and Generation G lip tint. All of the Phase 2 products have shade options.

Sadly, my shade of Skin Tint has been out-of-stock for a while now, as have all of the shades of Generation G. So trying out these kits were out of the question. Therefore, I made some à la carte selections, including some items not included in Phase 1 or Phase 2.

did I mention that the Glossier items come in reusable pink zip bags? And you get stickers!

My newest crush is the Milky Jelly Cleanser. It is a crazy gentle cleansing gel that manages to scrub off makeup without drying the skin. I also kind of love the Soothing Face Mist. I feel super luxurious when I spray it on my face after cleansing.

The Priming Moisturizer is a fantastic combination of lotion and primer. I apply it before my makeup and it works just as well as high-end primers. The Boy Brow, which I got in the Blond shade, is a great brow gel. Since I am a pomade enthusiast, this will probably never reach “holy grail” status for me, but I do like it for more natural makeup days.

Finally, I’ve been using two flavored Balm Dotcoms – Rose and Coconut. These have become my go-to for pre-bed lip moisturizing. The coconut is positively yummy and the rose just makes me happy.

I guess my whole point here is that Glossier has products that are worth trying if you’re looking for simple and clean cosmetics.

Also, I should mention that if you are going to shop you can get 20% off by clicking right here.  Just sayin’.
