Fave Three: The Best Glossier Skincare Products

the best glossier skincare products

I know I’m late to the party but…

I just don’t find Glossier all that exciting. There, I said it.

I know I should be all over it because, “Hello, cute pink packaging!” I’m a sucker for everything pink. Ask Mr BWB. Half the stuff in our house is pink. Even the garbage bin (yes, really. And no, he’s not too happy about it).

But this is my skin we’re talking about. Pink packaging cuts it only so far. I need products that get rid of my wrinkles, brighten my skin tone and keep dryness at bay, not just look good on my vanity. Know what I mean?

Glossier skincare is very basic. Nothing bad with that. Their target audience is millennials and they’re not exactly dealing with deep forehead wrinkles and dark spots, are they?

I’m all for keeping it simple when you’re young. So if you don’t need much help in the skincare department and just want a quick skincare routine that keeps it looking its best, here are imo the best Glossier skincare products:

Milky Jelly Cleanser ($18.00)

If you wear as much makeup as a Kardashian (geez, I’m so glad I was young back when a natural look was popular!), Milky Jelly Cleanser won’t cut for you. It doesn’t remove makeup all that well (especially waterproof mascara). But it does make for an interesting morning cleanser. Its gelatinous texture glides on like velvet, without producing any foam. It removes dirt and impurities while moisturising the skin, leaving it soft and clean. That’s just what a cleanser is supposed to do.

Super Pure ($28.00)

Super Pure is a basic niacinamide serum. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know niacinamide is one of the ingredients I can’t leave without. It’s a multitasker that does everything: it hydrates skin, fights wrinkles, fades away dark spots, soothes irritations and rosacea, and treats acne. It doesn’t matter what skin type or skin concern you have, adding niacinamide to your skincare routine can only help. My only problem with Super Pure is that niacinamide plays alone. There’s nothing else worth mentioning in this formula.

Super Bounce ($28.00)

Super Bounce is a basic hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet: it attracts water from the air and drops it into the skin, infusing it with a waterfall of moisture. It’s so powerful, it can literally hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hydrated skin = healthy skin. All that moisture plumps up your skin, makes it softer and gives it a lovely glow. Hyaluronic acid is a great way to hydrate oily skin without adding more oil and to give dry skin that hydration boost it badly needs. The only con? Like Super Pure, Super Bounce is very basic. Hydrating skin is all it does.

I feel like The Ordinary does these things at a much lower price, so i haven’t tried the skincare.

I have tried Boy Brow (quite nice, but i wont pay that much again) and Generation G, which is lovely.

All in all, i think the brand is pretty overrated.

Pea, I agree with you. I haven’t tried the makeup but the skincare is very overrated. If you’re looking for basic products with only one or two actives, The Ordinary does a better job.
