I’ve been a Glossier rep for about a year now, & have been testing out & playing with their products for over a year. During that time, I’ve definitely discovered which products are must-haves in my collection & which ones I honestly would pass on. Today I want to share with you my honest opinion: The Best & Worst of Glossier.
(Shop Glossier here!)
The Milky Jelly Cleanser
I truly love this product. This cleanser is my go-to in-shower facial cleanser. It’s perfect for cleansing & waking up my skin in the mornings without stripping away any moisture. My skin loves this stuff, & therefore, so do I! I’ve almost used a full jar of this, & I know I will be repurchasing this gem.
I’m a makeup girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good tinted moisturizer, but this really doesn’t do much of anything in terms of coverage. If you have amazing skin to begin with, I can see how this would give you that nice dewy skin look. I tent to lean towards products with a little bit more coverage. I will probably use it more often over the summer when I want a “fresh face” look since I already own it, but I don’t see myself repurchasing this one.
Again, these seem so fun. I love the idea of this product, but the color & glitter payoff is just not what I expected. My favorite shade is moon because it gives your lid that wet shine that looks so cool. I find these products hard to blend well, & when patting them in with your fingers, the color goes away almost completely. I will continue to use them on “Sparkle Fridays” but I don’t see myself repurchasing them.
Priming Moisture Rich
I cannot say enough good things about this product! This will forever be in my nighttime rotation. I love how luxurious this moisturizer smells & the way it feels on the skin is dreamy! I’m almost through my second jar of this, & I know I will be repurchasing this again & again!
I have this product in the shade dusk, which is such a nice shade. I ONLY use this product on no makeup makeup days. The more I use it, the more I find it difficult to blend. It ends up looking like paint on my skin instead of a seamless wash of color. When I do use it, I make sure to spend the extra time blending with my hands & my damp lemon drop. Again, no repurchasing from me. (use code FELIXANDFLORA25 for 25% off my favorite sponge, the Lemon Drop)
This product is one of my very favorites! I have the shade quartz & it’s home is almost always my purse. My favorite way to use this product is to refresh my skin during the day! I pop a little bit on my cheekbones &, voilá! Fresh & glowing skin instantly! If you haven’t tried this, you must!
Sadly, I just don’t see how people use this with success?! I hate to say that, but this product looks terrible on me. I’d like to think that I don’t have that many lines around my eyes, but after using this product, it makes me think I do! I have tried blending with a sponge, with my fingers, with a brush & nothing seems to make this look good. Of course I even set it with powder & still my eyes look like a creasy mess! If you have any tips on using this product, please share them…but this one is a pass for me.
This ones another good one in my opinion! I love that this can be a sheer wash of color on the lips, but you can also build up the color for a bolder look! I have one in the shade Crush & Cake, but the shades Jam & Like are definitely next on my list to purchase! They feel good on my lips & look fabulous!
I’m such a firm believer in this product! I started using this in a below zero temperature winter while my skin was quite dry (very unusual for me). I was hesitant because this product has salicylic acid in it which typically dries my skin out even more. Not only did my skin not get dry, but it improved. I was amazed! My skin has definitely been clearer thanks to this product. I also was having issues with my back not being clear, & the combination of Solution & an overnight moisture mask cleared things right up! Definitely keeping a jar of this on hand at all times!
Body Hero Daily Oil Wash
This product has definitely grown on me. First of all, the scent gets a major thumbs from me. It’s dreamy! Also, I’ve found that I enjoy using this as a more luxurious extra step in the shower instead of as an actual body wash. I don’t feel that it really cleans me on its own, but I love the moisture surge it provides for my skin. This is my last step in the shower on those days I have a little bit extra time to give my skin some love.
Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream
The way that this cream melts into my skin is divine! I love how soft my skin feels all day long after using this product. It gives a lovely sheen to the skin for a subtle glow without being sparkly. The only thing I would say about this product is I wish the smell sat on my skin as well as the Daily Oil Wash does. For some reason, the smell of this product does not smell quite as good once it hits my skin. For those of you who have tried it, do you feel the same way? I just wish the smell was better. That’s all. It’s not bad, just not as good as I hoped it would be.
Balm Dot Com
I’ve done quite a few appreciation posts on my Instagram for these guys (see here & here). I don’t think there is a human on this earth who would not like this product. This is my very favorite lip balm I have ever tried. I have the flavors Rose, Mint, Coconut, & Birthday. Coconut is a religious part of my nighttime ritual. I apply a generous amount to my lips & my cuticles every night before I go to sleep. I can really tell a difference in the morning when I use this product. If you don’t own one, go buy one now…or three!
I had really high hopes for this product. So much so that I used it for the first time just 2 weeks before my wedding day! Let’s just say my skin did not enjoy this product. I broke out almost immediately after using this sunscreen. Don’t worry, my skin cleared up for my wedding, but it left such a bad first impression that I don’t think I will ever be using this product again. Sadly.
This is the newest addition to my Glossier collection. I’ve just started playing with this product, but so far I’m really loving it. It sits nicely on the skin & lasts all day! That’s all I have today for now, but I’ll update you again soon in my Instagram stories.
Will say this brush is very aesthetically pleasing. If you’re looking for a pretty brush for pictures or to have in your collection, go for it. This is just honestly not the brush I would reach for to apply powder to my face. It’s very soft, I will give it that, just not my favorite.
There is something quite satisfying about this fragrance. They say that it smells like “you”, & strangely enough it does! I love the way it smells on me & how it changes on each person! My favorite way to wear this is to apply a few sprays everyday as my “base” scent, then layer other fragrances over top depending on how I’m feeling that day! Delightful!
I’ve recently added this gem to my Glossier collection, but let me tell you, it’s off to a great start. This face serum is packed with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin B5 to help plump & smooth the skin. I love mixing this in with my moisturizer at night & my skin seems to love it! Definitely worth the money.
Oh, the beloved Boy Brow. This product has been a game changer for my brows! I can literally only use this product & they look awesome. It thickens & tints my brows all while locking them into place for the rest of the day. Love how much time I save with this product. A few swipes through & they’re good to go! (helpful tip:make sure you wipe off the extra at the end so you don’t initially apply too much product!)
Moon Moisture Mask
This mask is a quick & easy way to pack moisture into the skin. Perfect for those days when your skin needs a little boost. I reached for this a lot during the winter, but I know my skin loves it no matter what season it is! All around a big win for me.
There are a few products that I haven’t tried yet: Priming Moisture (the original), Mega Greens Galaxy Pack mask, the other 2 serums, the new Zit Stick & the Soothing Face Mist. Are you interested in me testing any of these products out for you guys? What should be next on my list?
Remember, when shopping with me, you will receive 10% off your first order, as well as free shipping for orders over $30! Great deal, huh?!
