I began my last review of Glossier products unaffiliated with them. I must disclaim that I am officially a Glossier rep now (*cheers! fireworks! celebratory hugs!*). However, just because I can now offer you guys a 20% discount instead of just 10%, I am still writing this review with my honest opinion. Last time I only reviewed Generation G & the Stretch Concealer. Since then I have practically bought everything from Glossier & I am STILL SO OBSESSED. The amount of Glossier stuff I now have is a bit ridiculous so I am splitting up this review several posts. This post will discuss their skin care products, the next will go into their makeup, and another post will be about other things (like their masks & their…. sweatshirt? yes, sweatshirt. A sweatshirt I will literally wear 5 days in a row.)
Enter the Milky Jelly Cleanser. My holy grail. My soulmate (sorry Joe). My best friend (sorry Alex). This cleanser IS PHYSICALLY MAGIC. First, it is insanely cleansing (duh, it’s a cleanser). I can have a full face of makeup and I’ll simply rub this all over my face (without water) & my day is washed away. Second, it is insanely moisturizing. I use this day & night, afternoon, midnight, whenever. It is so soothing my face is as soft as a fat baby’s butt after I use this. I honestly have gone through so many bottles of this & have 1 backup & 2 on it’s way. As I have discussed previously, I had terrible combo skin that was riddled with pimples. I always had a constant battle with my skin– how to keep it moisturized without leaving it greasy as a pizza. This cleanser has seriously transformed my skin. It’s nourishing, smells great, doesn’t strip my skin of it’s oils, yet cleanses makeup/dirt/etc off my face to prevent any sort of horrific outbreak. If there is one Glossier item I could only own for the rest of my life, it’s the Milky Jelly Cleanser.
Next, enter the Priming Moisturizer & the Priming Moisturizer Rich. Let’s get real. I never used to moisturize my face because hello, super greasy. Then I read some beauty blog that talked about how keeping your face moisturized reduces oil production, etc etc. I then began to moisturize like a mad woman but never quite found the right kind that fit my combo skin. Say hello to the priming moisturizers. For those ridiculous summer days with lots of nose sweat, the Priming Moisturizer is my go to. For those frigid, snow filled winter days with sad dry skin, the Priming Moisturizer Rich is what I reach for. If I had to choose one, I would go with the Rich because 1) smells like lavender 2) much more moisturizing throughout the day. Both are great primers for maker which is great for someone who likes the least number of steps in the morning! I will say that if your skin is a bit sensitive, you might have a slight reaction to these moisturizers.
Now, enter the Invisible Shield, aka sunscreen that YES EVERYONE NEED TO WEAR EVERY SINGLE DAY. However, I will admit, I do not wear it every day…. If I had to wear a sunscreen it would be the Invisible Shield. It goes on like a gel, smells like citrus, & melts into your skin so you don’t feel bombarded with that “sunscreen” feel (you know, that heavy white goop that smells like a weird motel). The only issue I had with this was that it left me so shiny. Perhaps I put too much on, or maybe put it on in the wrong order (which btw, if you have any tips on how you apply your beauty products in terms of which one you apply first, second, etc., leave a comment because I still don’t know). However, it is the only facial sunscreen I will ever use because it feel so not like sunscreen & is SPF 35, I’m just terrible at remember to do it EVERY SINGLE DAY.
TL; DR: YOU ARE GOING TO GO BUY THE MILKY JELLY CLEANSER RIGHT NOW. K? K.
