The beauty world has always been some type of alternate universe for me. I’m not the typical girl who wears makeup every time she leaves the house. In all honesty I’d rather sleep an extra 15 minutes than put on makeup. I prefer to really cling to the term, “less is more” when it comes to skincare.
Glossier (rhymes with dossier), the new simple-no nonsense skincare by Emily Weiss of beauty blog, Into the Gloss is the latest to hit my medicine cabinet. I’m a sucker for simple and clean packaging, which they pretty much nailed. Along with the Phase 1 set comes a page of super 90s inspired stickers to decorate your bottles and make them all your own. I’m a sucker for customization. It’s been about a month that I’ve had the series so a proper review is in order.
| Soothing Face Mist | This is pretty much the best ever. I’ve been looking for a rosewater spray for years with no alcohol ever since one of my favorites was discontinued. There really are no words for how great and useful this is. You can use it as a toner, which I do or as just a simple refresher in the afternoon. I need to reorder already because I’m totally obsessed.
| Priming Moisturizer | Probably one of the most important skincare products is moisturizer. It’s often underestimated but so important. No matter how tired I am each day I always wash my face and put on moisturizer each morning/night. With the cold bitter weather coming here this is the perfect base for your makeup or just a standalone product to wear when heading out the door. It’s got a great texture and never feels greasy or oily on your skin. A tip for this winter: keep this in your bag for a quick skin repair.
| Balm dotcom | The name of this balm is an understatement. It really is the bomb. It’s marketed as more of a salve which can be used on dry and part of your skin that need just a bit more lovin. As someone who has tried about a bazillion different balms, the fact that this one is on regular rotation is quite a feat.
| Perfecting Skin Tint | For someone who doesn’t want to wear foundation, but still wants to have an even radiant skin tone, look to the perfecting skin tint. It comes in three shades that easily blend with many skin colors. With diamond powder as a key ingredient, how can you really go wrong?
I have to tip my hat to Emily and the crew of Glossier for creating such a great range of products that appeals to all essential beauty needs with a touch of fun!
