A Glossier Update – What Am I Still Using?

A Glossier Update - What Am I Still Using?

2 Years Later…

I’ve been a Glossier Rep for about 2 years now & it’s been about a year since I updated my Best & Worst Of Glossier post. Today I want to be brutally honest & share with you the products that have stood the test of time. These products are either ones I’ve loved for the entire 2 years, ones that are newer launches that I’m loving, or items that I’ve changed my mind about & fallen in love with in a whole new way. For whatever reason they are featured in this post, know that I truly, truly adore each & every one of these product & use them every week, if not every day!

Make sure you read my Best & Worst Of Glossier Post to hear about which products you should really pass on. I reviewed each product I’ve tried & give you my honest feeling on which products are worth your money & which ones you definitely don’t need in your life.

Also, please don’t forget to shop on Glossier through my Rep Page. When you shop using my Rep Page, I get a small commission that helps support Felix & Flora! Thank youuuu!

A Glossier Update - What Am I Still Using?

Let’s Start With Skincare!

These 6 items are products my skin truly loves. They are hydrating & plumping & are full of key ingredients for healthy skin. I love that while these products are so hydrating, they have never made my skin break out. Even though my skin leans on the oily side, these products keep my skin healthy & moisturized without looking or feeling greasy.

Milky Oil

The Milky Oil is perfect for taking off my makeup at the end of the day. I used to use it with the Glossier cotton rounds, but I have recently started using these really nice & affordable reusable cotton rounds in an effort to create less waste. This formula always feels so good on my skin & melts away my makeup with ease.

Milky Jelly Cleanser

This cleanser is my favorite to use when I travel. It feels like such a treat to use! The Milky Jelly Cleanser perfectly cleans my skin without stripping away any necessary moisture.

Solution

Glossier’s Solution is a holy grail product in my collection. Again, I use this on my reusable cotton rounds about once or twice a week. If there is ever a time when my skin is breaking out, I will use it more frequently. It has a way of perfectly transforming my skin. I love to use a luxurious moisturizer after applying this & my go-to is the Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful sleep mask.

Priming Moisture Rich + Super Bounce

About 3 times a week I combine Super Bounce with the Priming Moisture Rich as a part of my evening skincare routine. My skin absolutely adores this combination. It feels so luxurious & rich on the skin. These products last quite long & are definitely worth repurchasing.

Bubble Wrap

This is the newest skincare product by Glossier that I have fallen in love with. I’m so obsessed with the way it makes my skin feel the next day after applying it on the skin under & around my eyes the night before. This eye cream really does plump, nourish, & revitalize the skin in a major way! If you haven’t tried this yet, you need to!

Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

This summer, I was totally smitten with this product. My favorite way to apply it to my legs & arms is in combination with the Nuxe Dry Oil. They are literally a match made in heaven & make your skin glow like no other. The scent, though not my favorite, is one that I have grown to love & crave over time. This is truly a body hero & my skin drinks it in.

Balm Dot Com

This lip balm is a MUST HAVE product for my day to day life. I always have to apply a nice layer to my lips & cuticle before I go to bed. It’s a ritual I have grown to love. I have so many flavors, but my favorites are the mint & the rose. The berry flavor, which is their newest launch, is one I’m dying to try out, however.

Time For Some Amazing Makeup Products!

Face

Ok, ok, ok…so in my Best & Worst Of Glossier post, I mentioned that I never got on with Cloud Paint. Well, this summer, everything changed. My “no makeup, makeup” routine now includes me mixing my Haloscope in Quartz with my Cloud Paint in the shade Dusk. I’ve been totally into this look recently & now I’m dying to try more shades! Maybe Puff? Which Cloud Paint shades are your favorites?

Another great face product I’ve been really into lately is the Niteshine in shade Pale Pearl. It blends easily & perfectly glows on the skin.

Eyes

Before we technically get into the eyes, I have to mention my one & only true love…the Boy Brow. I literally use this product daily & cannot leave the house without applying it. Next on my list…the Brow Flick! If you’ve tried it…tell me EVERYTHING!

For eyes, I’m really into the Colorslide liners. I have the shades Magic Carpet & Candyland, which is my favorite. these glide on the lid with ease & last all day! They are amazing & can someone please buy me one of each of the 14 incredible shades?

At my work, we like to have Sparkle Fridays & the Glitter Gelée is so much fun to wear on the lid. I have the shade Phantasm which has the coolest effect. It’s opalescent & catches the light in a really special way. Again, I’m dying to try the other 3 shades soon.

Lastly, for mascara, I’ve been wearing the Glossier Lash Slick on a daily basis. No joke, this is the ONLY mascara that doesn’t transfer or flake off during my entire work day. I am a professional ballet dancer, so I sweat, touch, & partner with other dancers for 8 hours a day, & I never have to worry about this mascara giving me any issues. A total lifesaver.

Lips

Generation G lipstick are just so so good. I love how you are able to build up the color as much as you want. The end result looks like a perfectly blotted lipstick that is long wearing & comfortable on the lips. I have the shades Cake & Crush & I wear them all the time. Totally worth the money.

The Glossier Lip Gloss is one of the juiciest & shiniest lip glosses I’ve ever tried. Now they have 3 shades that are all calling my name! Even Michelle Obama wears it!

A Little Throwback

We are throwing it back to our honeymoon in Italy with these photos. We spent 2 full days on the beach eating pizza, swimming, & most of all, people watching. While lounging in total bliss, there are a few items in my beach bag that I found particularly useful. These things were easy to pack & made transitions before & after the beach a breeze.

Beach/Pool Day Essentials

The first must-have item for your next beach/pool day is a great beach bag. One like this one that is large in size with durable straps is great if you’re not a minimal person, like myself. This woven one is slightly smaller but equally as cute & perfect for those beach vibes. Then, you have your classic accessories like a fun pair of sunglasses, a beach towel (Try these microfiber towels! They dry super fast, pack small, & don’t get sand trapped in them!), a sarong, a floppy hat, & a great pair of sandals. Next, I always have a pack of makeup wipes on hand, because the mascara dripping down the face look is never fun.

For sunscreen, I like to use at least SPF 50 on my body, but on my face, I use my Coola Makeup Setting Spray with SPF 30. I’ve used this for years! It’s perfect to use & reapply whether you have makeup on or not. Also, on long days out in the sun, it’s so important to make sure you’re drinking plenty of water, so have a large bottle on hand.

When I’m not in the water, I either like to listen to music (Taylor Swift’s playlist on Apple Music is so good btw) or read a good book like this one or this one.

After Pool Essentials

This bikini bag was given to me as a wedding gift, & man was it so useful! It was the perfect size to store our wet bathing suits without getting the rest of our things wet.

To freshen up my body, I bring my favorite travel size deodorant, a yummy fragrance, & my go-to lip balm. Then for my hair, I spray my Ouai Sun Of A Beach Ombré Spray for that sun-kissed look & once it’s dried I spray a bit of my Ouai Wave Spray for the perfect beach wave look.

A Girl On The Go

As I’m writing this post, I’m currently out of town. I traveled to my hometown of Oklahoma City to see my sister’s high school graduation. When I was packing my things I realized that I consistently travel with the same handful of skincare products that I swear by. Each & every product I choose to travel with serves a unique & specific purpose in my skincare routine. Traveling has a way of really throwing off my skin’s groove, but with the help of these lovely products, I’m able to remedy any skin situation that gets thrown my way.

Why These Products?

The Glossier Milky Oil & travel-sized Milky Jelly Cleanser duo is my very favorite way to remove my makeup & cleanse my skin while traveling. These products do a great job of removing all of my makeup as well as nourishing my skin from the natural wear of traveling. If I start to feel any breakouts forming, I quickly use my Solution to stop it in its tracks & give my skin a refresh. This product is a life saver! After this chemical exfoliant, I like to use a moisturizing overnight mask. I’ve been using this for years & I keep coming back to it because of just how good it is.

Typically, I prefer to not use the same products on my face night after night. For this reason, I brought another skincare routine combo that is perfect to travel with. I mix in a few drops of the Pixi Rose Oil Blend with the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins for the perfect tone & nourishment my skin completely loves.

My Secret Weapon

As I mentioned before, I’m currently out of town & using these products on the daily. I have to give a special shout out to these overnight eye masks. The VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask For Dark Circles are a must have in my skincare travel essentials kit. My sister & I used these last night & we both swear that not only did they do wonders for any puffiness & dark circles under our eyes, but we actually slept better! They feel so cool & soothing on the skin, making me ready for a great night’s sleep. For an extra bonus, when we woke up, we sprayed our eyes with the VIIcode eye spray. This product is a spa-like treatment that is so refreshing & stress relieving. A combo such as this is like bringing my own spa with me wherever I go.

6 Steps To Spring Style

6 Steps To Spring Style

6 Steps To Spring Style

In Bloom

Spring, my favorite season, is in full swing & my heart is so happy. My garden is finally looking alive again & seems to be changing everyday! I’m keeping track of it on my Instagram so if you’re interested in seeing a bit of it, watch the highlight, “Our Garden”. Just as my garden is changing with this lovely weather, so is my wardrobe. Today I’m sharing 6 steps to spring style I use when choosing my outfit each day.

6 Steps To Spring Style

Choosing A Color Palette

When deciding what I want to wear each day, I start with the color. My favorite way to choose what color to wear is by thinking about what I’m most excited to see outside in nature that day. For instance, if the sun is out & my yellow roses are blooming, I’ll probably be wearing yellow. Or if the sky is clear & blue, like it was on this day, I’ll wear my favorite bright blue shades. Connecting the colors you wear to what’s inspiring to you outdoors is the best way to have the perfect spring color palette in your wardrobe.

Pile On The Florals

This time of year, you can find me wearing at least one piece of florals on the daily. Whether it’s a dress or skirt like the one I’m wearing, or a floral pair of shoes, earrings, or bag, florals are something I just can’t resist. Wearing at least one piece with floral details really sets the tone for a spring look. But why not pile them on? Try mixing floral prints, & if this seems a bit scary for you, I promise you this post I wrote last year will help you feel like a pro.

Bright Accessories

While I do love color, bright white accessories are my go-to during the spring. They help brighten any & every look. The best part is they match literally any color you could wear this spring. So when you’re looking to invest in a new pair of statement earrings, choosing a bright color is always fun, but choosing a bright white in a fun shape like these bows I’m wearing, will ensure you will get the best cost per wear.

6 Steps To Spring Style

All About The Sleeves

Sleeve details that make interesting silhouettes are my secret weapon when it comes to creating the perfect spring look. Think ruffles, balloon sleeves, & smocking. For this look, even though both my skirt & my sleeves are a bit oversized & exaggerated, the top fits snug around my body to still gives me a flattering shape.

Add Texture

The very best way to add a bit of texture to your spring outfit is by pairing it with your favorite woven, wicker, or rattan pieces. Whether it’s a bag, a great pair of woven shoes, or some raffia earrings, this small detail brings warmth & life to an outfit. I just did a whole post on this topic, see it here.

A Fresh Face

You’re never fully dressed without a fresh face & a smile. A great fresh spring face first begins with good skincare (see these 4 skincare items I can’t live without!). It’s so important to invest in your skin & really take care of it well. The more you take care of your skin, the less makeup you’ll feel like you need to wear. A few key items to my fresh face include my Jouer Luminous Moisture Tint, the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk blush, & my favorite nude lip.

Four Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

Four Skincare Products I Can't Live Without

My Skin Transformation

Growing up, I always had acne. I washed my face every single day without fail, used acne treatments & oil-free makeup, & did everything I knew to do in order to dry up my skin. At the time, I didn’t realize the excessive drying of my skin probably did more harm than good. It took me years to realize that even though my skin is more oily, it still needs moisture or else it will just keep producing more & more oil.

Once my mind was open to applying moisturizer & even oils to my skin, I jumped into the skincare pool head first on my hunt to find the best products. I started learning more about key ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, & rose oil & over time, saw the lasting effects they had on my skin. It’s been an incredible journey learning what works & what doesn’t & actually seeing my skin change for the better. I knew I just had to share with you four skincare products I can’t live without.


Four Skincare Products I Can't Live Without

Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner

This beautiful product was actually given to me as a Christmas gift from a dear friend. I had always had my eye on it, but somehow I had never tried it before. This toner does a great job of minimizing my pores while leaving my skin feeling fresh, soft, & moisturized. I treat this product as an extra step on those days I need a little extra pampering. It brightens, tightens, & locks in moisture for the next day.

Priming Moisture Rich

I’m typically not good at picking favorites, but I think this is my very favorite Glossier product. This moisturizer is so decadent & luxurious without being greasy or breaking the bank. I love how it smells not overly fragrant but still quite fresh. My skin always feels refreshed the next day. This is definitely one product I keep repurchasing over & over again.

Super Bounce

Remember my favorite ingredients I mentioned before? This Super Bounce serum has hyaluronic acid to help lock in moisture & plump the skin. I love mixing this in with my Priming Moisture Rich to create my favorite nighttime combo.

Original Skin Mask

Every week or two when I feel as if my skin needs a little pick me up, I always gravitate towards this mask. The rose clay draws out any impurities (without making me breakout), & this mask gently exfoliates the skin upon removal. This refine’s my skin’s texture & boosts radiance. I mean who doesn’t want to look radiant?! After using this mask I apply a generous layer of moisturizing products (aka all the products mentioned above) for a nice spa-like treatment for my face.

My Top 5

Moroccanoil Treatment

I cannot get enough of this product. It works wonders on both wet & dry hair to tame frizz & add that gorgeous shine. Who doesn’t want gorgeous silky hair?

Balm Dotcom

I use the Glossier Balm Dotcom every single night. It heals my chapped lips while I sleep & is great on cuticles as well. Perfect for these cool temperatures. Shop all Glossier here.

The Perfect Red Lipstick

Look no further! I’ve found the perfect red lip! The Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lip in shade “So Marylin” is not only the most idyllic red, but is also so nourishing to your lips. A must-have in your lipstick collection.

Statement Earrings

BaubleBar is killing the statement earrings game right now. These black bow earrings are a classic. Even though they are big, they are light & comfortable to wear.

A Lasting Fragrance

I’m so impressed by Jo Malone fragrances. The scent stays on my skins for hours! That’s why I chose to wear a combination of English Oak & Hazelnut & Peony & Blush Suede on my wedding day. Pomegranate Noir is on my Christmas list this year.
