Friday Favs: Glossier Products

Recently, I’ve been making an effort to wear less makeup; partly to become more comfortable with my natural skin and partly to see if putting less product on my face would benefit my skin. For months, I had heard about Glossier, but was under the impression that it was a makeup brand for women who already had naturally clear and “flawless” skin. Eventually, I realized how problematic that mindset was [I’m not ashamed to admit that I have my downfalls too!], and that there really is no such thing as “flawless.” The fact of the matter was, I wanted to try this brand and I shouldn’t let my misconstrued perception of it stop me from doing so. So, I ordered a few things to replace some of my everyday products and I am now OBSESSED! Here are my three favorite Glossier products:

Milky Jelly Cleanser

Like many girls, I feel like I’ve tried every facial cleanser out there and have never been able to find one that doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight. I’ve found some that are better than others, but Glossier’s milky jelly cleanser definitely surpasses them all. I use this cleanser once a day and can clearly feel a difference in the cleanliness of my skin. Plus, the subtle rose scent that lingers leaves me feeling relaxed and refreshed!

Lash Slick


Having a reliable wand of mascara in my makeup bag at all times is a must, so testing out Glossier’s lash slick was an obvious necessity. While it’s sometimes hard for me to tell the difference between mascara brands, the benefits of this product were obvious right away. The lash slick feels much lighter on my lashes than previous brands I had tried, while still giving a full and lengthy look, and I found that I didn’t have to scrub at my eyes at the end of the night to get it off—it washes away with ease!

Perfecting Skin Tint


This is definitely the product that has been an absolute game changer in my endeavor to achieve a more natural daily makeup look. As many women probably know, certain foundations can feel super heavy on your skin and can even give you that dreaded caked-on look. Glossier’s skin tint is a much lighter version of typical foundations. The first time I used it, I could immediately feel the difference in the way my skin felt throughout the day [almost like I had no makeup on at all!]. Despite the “no-makeup” feel of this product, the skin tint still offers just the right amount of coverage so that I don’t have to go out with a completely bare face!
