By now, I’m sure you’ve seen or heard of the very Instagramable brand, Glossier. From their bubblewrap packaging, pink branding, expertly curated Instagram page and relatively affordable pricing, I (Sara here) was definitely intrigued by this brand as soon as I came across it. It’s always hard to know which products are the best or which will work the best for you from any particular brand, but especially one with as many products as Glossier, since they do both skin care and makeup. I can honestly say there are very few Glossier products that I have tried and not loved, but there are certainly a few standouts that have cemented themselves in my daily routine. So, if you’re considering trying Glossier, but aren’t sure where to start, here are my top recommendations:
I use a variety of cleansers, depending on the season and other factors that might affect my skin, but this cleanser always manages to stay in the rotation. My skin always feels super clean, but it doesn’t dry out your skin or strip away any moisture – I barely feel like I need to use moisturizer after using this because it conditions and moisturizes your skin while cleaning. Bonus: if you’re a lazy girl, like me, this soap also works as a makeup remover. In just one cleanse it will remove the toughest long-lasting mascara and also wash your face! No need for a two-step process of removing makeup and then washing. It sounds small, but after a long day when the last thing you want to do it a complicated nighttime skincare routine, this cleanser will save the day!!
This super lightweight serum is a relatively new addition to my lineup but I am loving it so far. It is a niacinamide and zinc serum that helps improve skin texture and clarity. Because its so light, it is great for summer because it’s not sticky and doesn’t weigh down your face in any way. I have days where I’ll just use this after using the Milk Jelly cleanser (+ sunscreen of course!) and call it a day.
It’s so hard to describe a scent (I really tried to for this post and in our date night & everyday perfume post !), but I can tell you that if you are on the hunt for an everyday scent, this one should be in the running. A few reasons why it’s my go-to: 1) it works year round – I don’t feel like I need to switch it out during certain seasons; 2) it’s subtle – not too strong but definitely there; 3) at $60 per bottle, it is half the price – or less – of most designer perfumes. I’ve gotten compliments on this perfume more than any other one I’ve ever worn, so it’s definitely a crowd-pleaser! They also have a hand cream in the same scent, which is great for an additional little boost of scent throughout the day!
