I am so excited to introduce the beauty brand Glossier today and give away some Glossier goodies before their UK release.
In case you didn’t know, Glossier is the new edgy beauty brand created by Into the gloss founder Emily Weiss who’s goal was to design a brand of product’s that rethought beauty by creating items that celebrate the realness of every girls beauty rather than cover it up. The New Voice in Beauty. “Skin First, Makeup Second, Smile Always” as quoted by the lady herself.
This utterly modern uber cool approach is evident from the moment you open your Glossier parcel the signature pink inside boast’s words that celebrate the freedom of individual beauty complete with emoji’s and cute Glossier stickers, whilst the products are encased in a pink bubbly futuristic zip pouch, you could easily be forgiven for ordering solely for the packaging.
Moisturizing Moon Mask
Masking is the new meditating 20 minutes of time solely for you. This balmy mask has a barely there unobtrusive fragrance, thick but not oily, smooth and silky. I applied to my face, neck, décolleté and enjoyed my 20 minutes of bliss. This intensely moisturising mask’s ingredients designed to restore my skin to a fresher faced version did not disappoint. Botanical emollients combined with skin plumping hyaluronic acid, skin brighteners and soothers. It’s an intelligently combined cocktail of ingredients that works.
- Shea butter, plant-derived squalene, sweet almond oil, soybean oil, dimethicone (for moisture)
- Licorice root and lemon extracts (to brighten/even skin tone)
- Honey, aloe and hyaluronic acid (skin soothers and humectants)
Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve
As a beauty therapist I’m always wary of the word universal can any one product truly fit the brief, but yet this clear rich waxy balm works wonders to soothe chapped lips (apply overnight as a lip mask), tame/shape eyebrows, to nourish and repair dry irritated skin on elbows, as use as a cuticle ointment nightly or after your mani (not before or your polish won’t last). It’s fragrance-free so this savvy salve also works perfectly for creating Autumn/Winter’s trend the messy smokey eye. Dab a few dots over your shadow or khol pencil and smudge out. Final thought’s It’s incredibly long-wearing as a lip balm and genuinely leaves lips hydrated and glossy it’s sure to become a treasured addition to many a girl’s makeup kit.
- Castor Oil A natural plant extract, this thick emollient has unique water-binding properties that keep moisture locked in.
- Beeswax A natural emollient which acts as a protective barrier.
- Lanolin A natural emollient that’s good for sensitive skin.
- Cupuacu Fruit Extract An organic, long-lasting moisturizer with Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids
- Rice Bran & Rosemary Leaf Extracts. Antioxidants to combat free-radical skin damage.
Coconut Balm Dotcom
The latest release from Glossier offering similar moisturizing skincare benefits to the above Balm Dotcom only tweaked, but what a tweek the addition of coconut transforms this balm into something else completely it smells’s like summer vacation in a tube coconuts, palm trees and warm sand. As with the original Balm Dotcom the wearability surpassed even other adored skincare brands I’ve tried lasting on lips for hours before needing to be reapplied. For me, It’s my favourite product of the three this truly has all the makings of a cult beauty item. Warning: it’s highly addictive.
