As a Glossier Rep I wanted to do a post about my favorite products and why I love the brand. To clarify I am not being paid to write this, Glossier is a brand I have always enjoyed and used and becoming a rep was recent and happened because they saw how much i love their products.
So to tell you a little about Glossier. Their motto is skin first, makeup second. That is the first reason i love them. Glossier (& founder Emily Weiss) believe beauty is deeper than your image. So they create cruelty free makeup that is focused on your natural beauty and helping your skin. They started with skincare and have expanded to makeup, body products, and a perfume. Their skincare is moisturizing and well thought-out and their makeup isn't full coverage, it focuses on sheer and moisturizing products that help your skin, not cover it up.
Aside from all of their products and everything they stand for, I have to say the 'business' side of me was immediately drawn to their company. They have disrupted the retail experience and how to brand a beauty product. Their minimal, beautiful, light aesthetic drew me in the second I saw it. They care about who is using their product, they communicate, are open to input, and want to be as involved as possible. I could go on and on but back to the product. Here it is my honest review on all of the products I have tried:
Milky Jelly Cleanser - The face wash I now use every night. It was made to be light and gentle but also remove makeup. I have read some reviews online where people have said it doesn't remove their makeup but I have never had a problem. I am guessing it doesnt remove harsh makeup like waterproof mascara. I currently wear a Covergirl mascara and It removes my mascara insanely fast and has yet to get in my eyes or anything. I follow with a toner at night and a stronger face wash for acne in the morning.
Pure Serum - I can honestly say I have noticed a difference in my skin since I started using this. At first it feels like water/oil but my face has been less red since I started using, which is the reason I had purchased it in the first place. **It is important that you only use this serum once a day because of how strong it is. It is not recommended that you use Glossier's Super Glow the same time you use Pure. Also, personally I moisturize a lot while using this product.
Priming Moisturizer - I don't use this everyday, I can't say I have a reason for that I just mostly don't remember to use it because it is a new step for me. I usually just use it when i want to make sure my makeup lasts all day/night. I also use an additional moisturizer with it because I have dry skin.
Mega Greens Face Mask - A miracle worker. Glossier's masks are not given enough credit. They leave my skin calm, moisturized and feeling refreshed. If I could use it everyday, I would.
Balm Dot Com in Mint - It is a great thing to throw in your purse for when you need chapstick. A lot of people like to 'collect' these because of all of the colors/scents they come in. Personally I don't need more than one, but I love mint because it is refreshing.
Stretch Concealer in Light - This is the most moisturizing concealer I have used. It is most definitely a light coverage concealer and normally I use a fuller coverage one but somehow this one works magic on my skin. I use it under my eyes and then on any spots i have. Any blemishes I also go over with my stronger concealer but the lighter layer first seems to work well.
Boy Brow in Brown - I. love. this. product. This is the first product i bought from Glossier and it's my favorite one. I use it when I am lazy about my makeup (which is often) and I use it after I fill in my brows. I couldn't say enough about it. You can throw it in your purse and it instantly makes me look more put together when my brows are on point. Go buy it.
Wowder in Light/medium - I do love this powder. it took some warming up too but I find myself reaching for it more and more. It sets my makeup and gets rid of shine.
Haloscope in Moonstone - Ugh Haloscope in Moonstone is beautiful. It is the perfect subtle glimmer and it's amazing. Also something i throw in my purse when I think it's going to be a long day. (I throw too much makeup in my purse.)
Cloud Paint in Dusk and Beam - A product i never thought I would like. i am not one who wears blush because my skin is naturally flushed basically all the time. Yet, cloud paint is amazing. It is a cream which I also didn't think I liked, but yet again Glossier proved me wrong. Dusk is my favorite shade, I use it for blush, bronzer, and sometime eyeshadow as well. Beam is my second favorite to give a bit more of a peach/pink blush.
Generation G lipstick in Leo and Cake - I always have one of these shades in my purse. Cake is my fav.or.ite. it's a beautiful natural shade that helps give my natural lip color some evening out/peachier tone. I willll say that i wish it was more moisturizing, I find it sometimes drys out my lips and you need to apply it often. Yet somehow I wear it all the time so idk, something is wrong with me.
Feel free to always reach out to me with any questions, I am continuing to try more of their products so I can help people find what will best suit them!
