Little skin update after one month of using Glossier skincare and makeup! You know how much I loved this brand, and I want to be completely honest and tell you what products are worth it, and also about those I’ll skip in my next glossier order.
To make things short, I’m only going to talk about skincare and next week I’ll be making a second post about makeup!
Milky Jelly Cleanser
I have already finish one bottle of this cleanser before, and it’s one of my favorites! The consistency as the name suggests a cream-gel, I use it morning and night and my skin loves it! The formula is gentle and it doesn’t stripes moisture away from your face. What I love the most is that it feels like a very simple product, the smell is nice but discrete and the result is just clean and soft skin.
Next time I’ll make sure to order more than one bottle to have backups!
An all-purpose skin and lip balm, the Birthday Cake flavor is my favorite and I use it every single day! My lips feel super hydrated and plumped.
A few days ago, I was spent the whole day in the mountain, trying to do some snowboard lessons, and sadly I burned my lips because I didn’t thought of using SPF on them… long story short: After two days and many layers of Balm Dotcom my normal lips are back 👌🏻.
I have also tried the Rose flavor, but honestly Birthday Cake is the best one!
I love trying out new moisturizers! This year I had the chance to try many good ones! So far, you know that Clinique Moisture Surge it’s really one of my musts, the only downside it’s the price 42 CHF for 50 ml, Normally 50ml is perfect for one month (if you use it AM & PM).
Glossier moisturizer, is just as nice as Clinique and perfect for my type of skin, I have an oily T-zone but dryer cheeks. My skin feels plumped, but never oily or heavy.
Price 21€ for 50ml.
What I loved the most of these 3 products, is that you can order them together in a set called The Skin Care Set for 40€. I find this set is really useful if you want to test the brand for the first time.
The ok … but not ordering next time
Non of the Glossier products made me breakout or made my skin look bad, so I don’t want you to think they’re BAD, is just that I have tested other products in the market, that have given me better or faster result than the ones from Glossier, and this is why, I might not be ordering right away.
This chemical exfoliant is one of their must appreciated products, and according to many reviews and photos on their website, it is a very effective product, also the percentage of acids are very high.
I have to admit that this product made the texture of my skin look smooth and even, BUT I have tried another chemical exfoliant in the past that just makes my skin glow like no other, if you had followed my blog for a while, you might be able to remember, I once talked about the Liquid Gold from Alpha- H.
It’s been a while since I haven’t re-ordered Liquid Gold, but if I was to stay with only one chemical exfoliant for the rest of my life, it will be without a doubt that one! You can see results from the very first days of using it, and for me is just like baby skin in a bottle. I would highly recommend it (except for those who have very sensitive skin).
My must, I order it from Cult Beauty
Invisible Shield SPF 30
You know I have a thing for sunscreen, and I will never get tired of repeating that everyone should be using it daily!
I really liked the texture and how this sunscreen absorbs and sits on my skin, but I always use SPF 50. That’s the minimum my dermatologist recommends me, and I know my skin is very delicate to sun exposure, so I just feel better knowing I have the maximum protection.
SPF 15 filters out approximately 93 percent of all incoming UVB rays. SPF 30 keeps out 97 percent and SPF 50 keeps out 98 percent. They may seem like negligible differences, but if you are light-sensitive, or have a history of skin cancer, those extra percentages will make a difference. And as you can see, no sunscreen can block all UV rays.Extract from SkinCancer.org
That’s all guys! I try to be as honest and transparent as I can, I do love this brand a lot, and I’m always sharing a lot on Instagram about it, but nevertheless, it is very important for me to recommend and talk about the best!
Remember we all have different types of skin and we’re going to react in a different way to products.
Have you tried any skincare from this brand? Don’t hesitate to share with me yout experiences!
