A few months ago, I gave into the hype, decided to try out the beauty brand Glossier and promised to review it on my blog. Well, July has come and gone, and I’ve decided that it’s about time for me to share my experience with the brand. Since I only knew about the products from several fellow bloggers I follow, I reached out to Twitter to see what everyone’s favorite products were before trying some for myself.
The brand is hypoallergenic and cruelty free – two of the main qualities I look for in beauty products. I took the leap and purchased the Phase 1 Set containing the Milky Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, and your choice of Balm Dotcom, as well as Rosewater Spray. Here is my experience with each product:
Milky Jelly Cleanser // In a previous post, I shared my nightly skin care routine, and, while I’m not straying away from my normal routine, it’s nice to use a more gentle cleanser every now and again. As its name suggests, the cleanser has a jelly-like consistency that leaves your skin feeling fresh, and doesn’t dry it out. I prefer to use this on days when my skin feels dried out since it’s not filled with harsh chemicals.
Priming Moisturizer // This has become an integral part of my morning routine! It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, and helps shrink your pores for an all-over even surface. I don’t love to wear a ton of makeup every day, but when I do, I actually find that it helps secure my makeup for a full day of coverage.
Balm Dotcom // Since July is my birthday month, I decided to go with Birthday Balm DotCom, and was not disappointed. I do have a particular loyalty to Burt’s Bees Original chapstick, but this balm is universal and provides hydration not only to your lips, but also to extra dry areas just as cuticles (I even applied mine to my elbows which tend to become extra dry. I have my eye on the mint and rose versions of this product for my future orders!
Rosewater Spray // Okay, so I’m going to be super honest when I say I never understood the fad of rosewater spray… and I still don’t. I mainly bought this product because of the hype, but upon using it, I don’t really see the difference besides the fact that it smells good. Granted, I could totally be using it wrong, and I do not carry it to work with me for the “midday pick-me-up” that it’s said to be great for. I’ve mostly been using it as a makeup setting spray right before I head out for work in the morning. Again, I could totally be using it wrong so if you’re a rosewater fanatic, PLEASE tell me what I’m doing wrong!
Needless to say, I was very happy with Glossier. Not only did their products work well, but they shipped fairly quickly which is always a plus! Next, I intend on trying out Boy Brow, Cloud Paint, and their newest product, Wowder.
