I can't imagine a single person in the beauty community who hasn't heard of Glossier, but in case you haven't, it's a beauty brand started by Emily Weiss of Into the Gloss. Glossier's mantra is "Skin First. Makeup Second. Smile Always" and they believe in creating a highly edited collection of staple skincare and makeup products that are appropriate for all skin types. All their products are dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, paraben free, alcohol free and best of all, they're not tested on animals!
This was my first purchase with Glossier and I couldn't be more pleased. The package arrived within a few business days and the products came in a pink bubble wrap bag as shown in the picture above. Here's what I bought:
MILKY JELLY CLEANSER ($18) - This facial cleanser was created after Emily asked her readers of Into the Gloss to describe their fantasy face wash. As a result this daily face cleanser was born. It can be used on dry skin to dissolve makeup and on wet skin to wash away impurities. It's pH-balanced and made with a blend of five skin conditioners as to not dry out your face.
BALM DOTCOM ($12) - This is a cult favorite universal skin salve and Glossier's most talked about product since before the Milky Jelly Cleanser. It's hydrating, long-lasting and packed with antioxidants and natural emollients to to nourish and repair dry, irritated skin. Think a souped up version of vaseline in much prettier and more portable packaging.
