You may or may not heard of Glossier, a simple, authentic US beauty brand. Today, after much anticipation from our little island, it launches in the UK. This insatiable range of goodies cover the basics of skin care and all necessary products that create the perfect makeup kit.
Originally launched in 2014, this young brand comes from the genius’ behind ‘Into the gloss’ and has grown to be the cult beauty line that is so incredibly sought after by makeup enthusiasts across the globe. With a skin first, makeup second philosophy; a stripped back, modern aesthetic and cruelty-free recipes, this line is constantly connected and engaged with its audience, boosting its already popular reputation further.
“Since day one, we’ve dreamt of making Glossier a global beauty brand that celebrates girls and beauty in real life. We’ve always been internationally focused thanks to the Into The Gloss readership and our community on social media. Now we’re excited to actually get Glossier in their hands,” – Emily Weiss, CEO
As if that all didn’t sound exciting enough, the prices are more than palatable, with their whole range being priced between £10-£29 for individual products and the highest price coming in at £60 for their ‘Super Pack’, a trio of their best selling serums which cater to an array of different skin scenarios; think hungover, dull skin, stressed, dehydrated etc.
So, as this relatively new brand launches on our soil, we run through our favourite products that now we have, we simply couldn’t live without. Take our word for it and pop it in your shopping basket!
Glossier’s number one product; this brow product is everything you’ve been dreaming of and more. It thickens, fills and grooms. The creamy wax formula used ensures that it doesn’t stiffen, or flake and is available in four shades; brown, black, blonde and clear. If you opt for the colour version, it offers a refined oomph to your brow, giving you extra depth and definition. Both conditioning and flexible, it includes Atelocollagen; a collagen derivative that helps condition and strengthens hair fibres, and is alcohol, fragrance, paraben and cruelty-free. Game changer!
When it’s got jelly in the name, you know you’re onto a winner. With key ingredients including Poloxamer, Rosewater, Comfrey root extract, Aquaxyl and Pro-Vitamin B5, it’s designed to moisturise, improve hydration, refills your skin’s water reserves, heals dry and stressed skin and holds mild cleaning properties. This bottle of magnificence can be used as a daily face wash on wet skin or as a makeup and grime remover on dry skin. It’s guaranteed to always leave your face silky smooth and properly hydrated. Happy hydration!
These little bottles of magic work wonders on your face, each in their own unique way. Super Bounce’s key ingredient is Hyaluronic acid; which holds up to 1000x its weight in water to plump up your skin. The key to softer, hydrated, plumper skin. Super Glow, does exactly as it says, it brightens and energises dull and tired skin. Pumped full of vitamin C and Magnesium PCA, it reduces dark spots, creates smoother skin and energises tired skin cells. Last, but not least, we have Super Pure, which is normally used to calm breakout skin and reduce redness; with key ingredients including Niacinamide and Zinc PCA, it clears out impurities whilst calming and soothing the skin.
All of the Supers are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested, paraben free, fragrance-free, cruelty-free and vegan. Get your bit of magic today.
Blush, so often overlooked, underused, or forgotten. With bronzer often prevailing as the preferred choice, blush gets left behind. But for the Winter months, or simply to give your skin a more of an ‘awake’ look, then blush should always be your first choice. Cloud paint is a pillowy gel-cream that is designed to simply be dabbed onto your cheeks to give a healthy, alive, flushed glow. Available in four shades; Puff, Dusk, Beam and Haze, it contains collagen, for a beautifully plump overall look.
Our fifth and final fave is of course; Balm Dotcom. A multipurpose lip and skin balm, that works wonders on dry and chafed skin. Available in five sumptuous flavours; Birthday, Rose and Cherry offer subtle tints and shimmers, whilst Mint and Coconut come untinted but smelling beautiful. With scents that make your mind wander, organic fruit extract, antioxidants to combat free-radical skin damage, you’ll be pushed to find a balm that tops this beauty.
To top it all off, the Glossier feature that we just can’t get enough of: When ordering you can opt for delivery every 1,2 or 3 months for a consistent and continual flow of glossier gems coming to your door.
We will be buying one of everything, just to be sure that all areas are covered… what will you be buying? Glossier to the rescue!
