A LOVE AFFAIR WITH GLOSSIER
You’ve probably heard me (and a million other people) fangirling over Glossier lately so I thought I’d put together a little post to show my appreciation for a brand who (in my opinion) just keep getting it SO right. I’ve mentioned a number of Glossier products across my blog and YouTube over the years, but I thought it would be nice to talk you through my collection because it’s grown quite a bit since my last overview (read that here). In my opinion, Glossier is TOTALLY worth the hype and I’m excited to see if you guys agree with me too. P.S. Glossier is now available in the UK! Wahoooo!
GLOSSIER PRIMING RICH MOISTURISER
I’m definitely much more into Glossier makeup than skincare but there are a couple of products in my collection that I use and love A LOT. First up is the Glossier Priming Rich Moisturiser. This moisturiser is perfect for me because I feel like it really nourishes my dry skin. It’s a little more pricey than your average drugstore moisturiser, but for £29 it actually feels like a really luxurious product to use. Before trying this moisturiser I kind of had the impression that it might feel greasy on the skin, but despite the fact that it’s a super rich formula, it actually absorbs really nicely into my face and doesn’t feel heavy at all. This is a great base for makeup in the mornings but it’s also the perfect product to reach for during your night time routine. A great all rounder. I’ve already gone through a couple of these tubs!
I only recently picked up the Body Hero Daily Oil Wash and Daily Perfecting Cream but I already really adore this duo. The oil wash is one of my new favourite products to use in the shower, it’s blended with seven oils that wash away any dirt or sweat and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. Whenever I use this oil wash I’ll always follow up with the perfecting cream once I’ve hopped out of the shower. Again, this is a super luxury-feeling product that locks in a layer of moisture on my skin. Not only that but this perfecting cream actually leaves a natural-looking glowy finish all over your body. These two make the perfect dreamy duo!
The last couple of skincare items that I want to mention are the Super Serums. Applying my serum is one of my FAVE steps in my skincare routine and these Glossier ‘Super Serums’ make the whole process even more of a pleasure. Glossier have this set on their site called the ‘Super Pack’ which basically has all 3 of their serums inside. Within this cute little collection of serums there’s ‘Super Glow’ which is perfect to use if your skin is looking a little dull, ‘Super Pure’ which is the serum to reach for if you’re suffering with break outs and ‘Super Bounce’ which eases tight, dehydrated skin. Once I’ve applied my serum I’ll go ahead and use something like the Priming Rich Moisturiser on top for an extra boost of moisture.
BALM DOT COM
The Balm Dot Com is another favourite of mine. This is basically a multipurpose skin and lip salve which you can use pretty much anywhere you feel like it. I like to use mine on my lips and on my elbows but they’re also great to pop in your bag and use as a hand cream. They come in a ton of different flavours but ‘Birthday’ has to be the best! What’s your fave?
So I’m pretty sure I mentioned the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tints in my August Favourites video and 3 months later I’m still obsessed with these babies. It’s quite difficult to describe the Glossier Skin Tints because they kinda feel even *lighter* than a tinted moisturiser. These are great if you’re a fan of lightweight coverage and a natural, dewy finish. I tend to reach for one of these on a day when I cba to wear any makeup but I just want to apply a little something to even out my skin tone and make me look a little more put together.
You’ve probably heard me talk about the Glossier Stretch Concealer a hundred billion times because I love it SO much! It’s kind of a sheer concealer but I like to dab a little but underneath my eyes to make them look more awake. It’s also really dewy which I love because most concealers tend to dry out under my eyes-not hot.
You guys know by now that I’m all about the brows and the Glossier Boy Brow is a product that I’ve been using forever now. This is kinda like a creamy, waxy formula that not only adds some definition to your brows, but also keeps them looking ‘on fleek’ all day. I have mine in the shade ‘Blonde’ which works perfectly for me. A lot of blonde brow products can tend to be quite harsh or even orange-toned but this one is pretty much perfect.
Glossier really blew me away with their beautiful collection of Cloud Paints. The Cloud Paints are basically a super creamy blush which give your cheeks a gorgeous, natural-looking flush of colour. I think the main reason that I love these Cloud Paints so much is because they’re super easy to apply (I’m all about that stress-free makeup). All you do is squeeze a little bit of the product onto your fingertips and dab it straight onto your cheeks. These are a DREAM to blend and they’re also really build-able so you can add as much or as little colour as you like. If you’re new to Glossier you need to try these!
GENERATION G LIPSTICKS
The Glossier Generation G Lipsticks are some of my favourites in my collection. Like pretty much every other makeup product by Glossier, these babies give a super natural finish. What I love about these is that they’re designed to appear differently on everyone because the formula actually allows your natural lip colour to show through. Lately I’ve been obsessed with the shade ‘Jam’ which is like a deep berry shade but I also love the shade ‘Cake’ which is the perfect everyday peachy nude. Adore these!
The last product I want to take a second to mention is giving me MAJOR high school vibes and that’s the Glossier Lip Gloss. I’d kinda forgotten that clear lip glosses were a thing until I picked this up but I absolutely LOVE it! Did anyone else used to apply a clear gloss religiously in their high school days? I love wearing one of the Generation G Lipsticks for colour and then adding a slick of this juicy looking gloss on top. I think this looks SUPER cute and 90’s and I just love it!
When I first heard that Glossier was releasing a fragrance I had no idea what it would smell like, but when I spritzed it on my wrist it made so much sense. It smells literally like ‘you’…but better. It’s a really grown up scent and one that I’ve found myself reaching for more and more over the past couple of weeks.
If Glossier is new to you then definitely make sure you try some of the products that I’ve mentioned. I think the Cloud Paint and the Boy Brow are my favourite Glossier products, they just really help me to achieve that natural look that I LOVE!
