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!

Four Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

Best & Worst Of Glossier

Best & Worst of Glossier

*Updated as of 09/09/18*

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!)

Best & Worst of Glossier

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.

Skin Tint

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

Lidstar

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!

Best & Worst of Glossier

Cloud Paint

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)

Haloscope

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!

Best & Worst of Glossier

Stretch Concealer

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.

Generation G

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!

Best & Worst of Glossier

Solution

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

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!

Invisible Shield

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

Wowder

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.

Wowder Brush

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.

Glossier You

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!

Super Bounce

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

Boy Brow

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.

Best & Worst of Glossier

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?!

Morning Skincare Routine

Morning Skincare Routine

Hello Everyone!

I haven’t posted about my skincare routine in almost a year! I’m absolutely in love with my regiment right now, so I wanted to share my morning skincare routine with you.

Morning Skincare Routine:

I am a morning shower kind of girl, & this Milky Jelly Cleanser is my favorite product to use on my face while in the shower every morning. It cleans my face beautifully, while adding a boost of moisture my skin craves (especially this time of year.).  After patting my skin dry, I apply my Vitamin C Truth Serum to help brighten my face, as well as my morning moisturizer, Clinique Pep Start. This is a daily routine of mine that I’m convinced my skin loves. If I’m feeling extra, I will also give my face a quick spritz of this Rose Facial Mist to help tone & moisturize my skin.

Another very important step I take every other morning is exfoliating. Whether I use an exfoliating cleanser, like this one, an exfoliating mask such as this one, or a chemical exfoliant, like this one, they provide so many great benefits for your skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead skins cells to reveal glowing fresh skin underneath. It also helps with blood circulation in the face which aids in healing & plumps the skin. Definitely a step I recommend not skipping! (And ALWAYS follow with with a rich moisturizer as mentioned above.)

What are your A.M. must-haves at the moment? Have you tried any of these products? Do you incorporate exfoliation into your skincare routine? If so, how often?

Let me know in the comment below! Let’s get great skin together! xx

Sephora VIB Rouge Sale List

Hello Everyone!

I have been strategically holding off on repurchasing some beauty items recently because I know, right after Halloween, Sephora’s semi-annual Beauty Insider (or VIB/VIB Rouge) sale is coming up! First of all, if you’re not a Beauty Insider yet, you should totally sign up immediately. There are so many benefits to being a part of this program: earn points on purchases, get product rewards from said points, free makeovers, invitations to exclusive events, & the chance to become VIB or VIB Rouge. Then, based on your Beauty Insider status, you get to participate in Sephora’s sales! I know that makeup & skincare is expensive, so it’s smart to take advantage of opportunities such as these.

This sale is perfect for things like skincare products, makeup splurges such as foundation or a new palette, & best of all: Christmas presents! Sephora is loaded with holiday value sets this time of year that are just perfect for splitting up & making little beauty bags for your best girlfriends. (If you want to see how I do that, let me know down below!)

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you guys what is on my list for this season’s sale. Some of these will be repurchases of some of my all time favorite products, while others will be new products I’m really excited to try out. Well, here we go!

For foundations, I’m torn between the YSL All Hours & the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion. I’m leaning towards the YSL…but I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve tried them out!

I JUST used my last drop of Luna & I cannot wait to get my hands on another bottle ASAP! Life changing!

Tati reviewed this Marc Jacobs palette (watch here) & I fell in love! It looks gorgeous!

The new Nirvana fragrance, Amethyst, by Elizabeth & James is everything I wanted their Bourbon fragrance to smell like. It’s the perfect combination of warm, spicy, & sweet, & it’s exactly what I want to wear this time of year. I love this warm & spicy trio they are offering right now! Perfect for mixing things up.

These value sets are just…wow! I’ve definitely used an entire set before, but again, they are so great for splitting up as gifts for friends & family.

My absolute favorite false lashes in style Samantha.

She does it again! Tati is making me want these gorgeous glitter lips! (Watch & be amazed!)

I’ve entirely used my previous palette of my favorite under eye setting power. Wanna have that glowing from within look? Use this.

Refills on top shelf skincare products: morning serum, morning moisturizer, & nighttime moisturizer.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post & are excited as I am about the upcoming sale!
