I’ve been looking forward to this Brand Spotlight for a while now as I’ve always heard great things about Glossier and have wanted to try the products out for myself. I will only be reviewing 4 products today, but as some of you may already know, Glossier doesn’t have a ton of products to choose from so trying out 4 products is almost trying out half of what is available. I knew there were things I had to try as they are the most talked about products ( the Milky Jelly Cleanser and the Stretch Concealer) and there’s a few more on the website that I think I will be ordering in the future to try out. If I like those other products, they are sure to get a mention in my monthly favorites. I won’t be talking about the products in any particular order since there’s only four of them so let’s get started…
Milky Jelly Cleanser – The way this has been described by almost everyone is that it’s a very unique/different feel texture-wise and that there’s no other product on the market like it. This cleanser does an amazing job getting make up off and that includes everything – mascara, eyeliner, your entire dark smokey eye look is gone after using this. It doesn’t take a lot of rubbing either so it’s very gentle on your eyes and skin. I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out. This product gets an A from me.
Stretch Concealer – I do have to admit I am a bit disappointed by this product. Everyone always raved about this one and said that it’s the best concealer for a dewey look and how great it is and I personally think it’s just okay, at best. This does not cover up almost anything for me and if I don’t set it with powder within one minute of putting it on my face, it creases. I did try it as an eyeshadow primer and got better results from it that way so that is probably how I will be using it for the rest of the time I own this product. I will also say that putting it on top of a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation seemed to make it go on smoother and crease less.
Balm DotCom – I used this as a lip balm instead of a body or hand salve as some people do. As a lip balm, this stuff is the bomb (dotcom- sorry, I had to). I got this in the mint flavor and have used it as a lip balm and as a primer for liquid lipstick. This let the liquid lipstick go on smoothly and never dry out my lips or crack. I will definitely be repurchasing this product when I run out. I think I may try a different flavor next time though for some variety.
Moisturizing Moon Mask – If I’m going to be 100% honest, I did not see any difference in my skin after using this. I used this mask once a week for the entire month and did not see any changes. I know it’s supposed to be hydrating and smoothing and I will continue using this until I run out but it’s for the sake of not being wasteful at this point and not for the benefits I’m seeing from this mask. I read later after buying this mask that their other mask ( the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack) is the more popular one and am definitely wishing I tried that one instead.
Overall, as far as my impression for the brand, I definitely think I will be willing to try their other products. Their boy brow and their face primer gets a lot of attention as well so I may be trying those out in the future. Let me know if you’ve tried other Glossier products that I did not mention or if you have similar or different experiences with the products I talked about today. As always, thanks for reading!
