Glossier | First Impressions.

You’ve probably seen a fair bit of hype around this brand recently and with good reason too. Glossier was launched in the US back in 2014 by the editor of IntoTheGloss, (a site I adore, btw. Check it out!) Emily Weiss. When I first came across Glossier and read that ‘Glowy, dewy skin is our thing’, I was instantly sold. There was only one problem, it wasn’t available in the UK. Damn. Fast forward a year or so and it was announced that Glossier would finally be launching over here and it’s safe to say, I and a lot of other beauty buffs were over the moon. It took me a fair while to decide what to buy as I could literally buy the entire range but y’know, I’m poor so I decided to just stick to four items that stood out the most. Your orders arrive in pink bubble bags which I think is pretty adorable and you get some fun stickers included, too.

I think the first ever product I came across were the Balm Dotcoms and as I’m a complete lip balm hoarder, I knew I had to try them so I bought two. Birthday and The Original. These are multipurpose balms that can not only be used on your lips but as skin salves too. They are full of antioxidants and natural emollients to keep dry skin nourished. The Original is a simple, unscented balm but does the job. Birthday, however, oh my god is amazing. The only downside? It makes me crave cake terribly. This balm smells soooo yummy. I can’t get enough!

I really didn’t need another moisturiser but I liked the fact that this Priming Moisturiser not only hydrates the skin but also preps it for makeup application meaning I can skip using a primer on top and the wait for two different products to sink into the skin. I really love how this feels and it definitely gives a dewy glow! I will use this even if I’m having a makeup-free day due to the fresh appearance it gives. It’s also buildable which is great for my skin type – some days it can be really dry so I’ll need a fair amount but on other days, less is better.

Lastly, I had to try one of the Cloud Paints as I’m a big cream blush fan. These blushes have a gel-cream formula and are a quick and easy way of giving your cheeks a nice pop of colour. You use your fingers to apply this which makes it a great travel option, no blush brush required! I got the shade, Beam which is a lovely apricot shade and it really suits my skin tone. Don’t forget you can win a Cloud Paint Duo in my giveaway.

Right, I’m off to make another order…

    I have been teetering on purchasing from Glossier since their inception basically, but sometimes I feel like their products aren’t for me. I have super oily skin with acne scarring and the last thing I want is a barely there super moisturizing base. BUT I have my eye on the balm dotcom because I love lip balms!

    Great post! x


    • I wish I could help you there but unfortunately my skin is super dry 🙁 You should definitely try the balms and make up products though! x

  • My fingers are crossed that they’ll start shipping to Australia soon! I’m so eager to try their products x
