Let me start by saying, I love Glossier products, I think they are moderately affordable and effective! I wanted to go ahead and review my 3 favorite products that I constantly use.
Super Pure Serum. I have sensitive and dry skin and this feels wonderful when I use it. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. It also has a water like texture so it is super lightweight as well. The ingredient niacinamide (vitamin B3) is in the formula, niacinamide is basically a powerhouse ingredient due to its ability to improve fine lines, wrinkles, size of pores, and slowly correct uneven skin tone. I only use a little at night near where I am susceptible to get crows feet and laugh lines.
Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Propanediol, Zinc PCA, Citric Acid, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Extract, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose
Pros: hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben free, fragrance-free, appropriate for all skin types, cruelty-free, vegan.
Cons: The percentage content of Niacinamide is not listed, it could be 0.1% for all we know… 0.5 fl oz for $28 = $$$
Super Bounce Serum. This product is great for dry dehydrated skin like mine. I love to use this in the winter months to combat the dry air. This is similar to a hyaluronic acid serum which is used to keep skin looking plump, hydrated, and youthful. I feel like as we get over everyone should be attempting to incorporate a Hyaluronic acid or serum into their skincare, it will really help keep collagen synthesis up (it declines as we age). This product also has a water like consistency and is super easy to apply. This also contains vitamin B5! I am on my 3rd bottle of this product <3 <3 <3 !! Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Biosaccharide Gum-2, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Caprylyl Glycol, Peg-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Polysorbate 80, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Octyldodecanol, Isohexadecane, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate
Pros: Vitamin B5, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben free, fragrance-free, appropriate for all skin types, cruelty-free, vegan,
Cons: 0.5 fl oz for $28 = $$$
Super Glow. I love anything that has vitamin C in it but for the price point, I have other products that are much more effective. I do enjoy this product, it feels great and continues to have that lightweight water like feel. I feel like this product may be too similar to the other serums that Glossier has already. The marketing claims to give a glow within look but for me, it’s just another product.
Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycereth-26, Propanediol, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Magnesium PCA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol
Pros: Lightweight, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben free, fragrance-free, appropriate for all skin types, cruelty-free, vegan, Magnesium PCA
Cons: Little to no impact on my skin. 0.5 fl oz for $28 = $$$. Other alternatives available for a better price.
Priming Moisturizer Rich. Of course, when online shopping I am not always rational. When I purchased this I thought it would be literally a priming moisturizer to use before makeup. To my discovery, it’s not which is just fine because I love this product! Like I have said, my skin is dry, especially in the winter. I am always looking for a rich moisturizer that doesn’t break me out or feel sticky. I hate feeling sticky like I cannot stand it, it makes me cringe lol. Anyway, it definitely calms my skin and I see a noticeable difference within minutes. I feel like this product is pretty comparable to my La Mer Moisturizing Cream ($$$$$). I use this product night and day because it’s relatively inexpensive for the quantity that you get. Also, I’ve read that those with combo skin really enjoy this product too.
Key Ingredients: Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Glycerin, Red Algae Complex, Ceramides 3 & 6, Non-greasy Kukui Oil provides palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids, Murumuru Butter, Lavender oil
Pros: Ulta rich, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, appropriate for all skin types, paraben free, cruelty-free, non-comedogenic, 1.7 fl oz ($35) = $$, long lasting
Cons: Can’t think of any, highly recommend!
So overall, I still feel that Glossier is moderately priced for the quality of the products. The brand definitely isn’t drug store but it is inexpensive compared to some of the brands that Sephora carries. I totally recommend the priming moisturizer rich and the super bounce serum! I am really looking forward to testing out more Glossier products! Be sure to let me know if any of these are your favorites as well 🙂
Thanks again for keeping up with me!
