Glossier Milky Jelly

Glossier’s blog post basically says it all, but….I obviously had to weigh in. My ultimate favorite beauty brand has just launched its newest product – a milky, jelly face cleanser! I tried it this weekend about 5 times and it’s….amazing!! 

Glossier’s Milky Jelly Cleanser is $18, available for 20% off if you use my link for your first purchase. 


One very cool fact about this cleanser is that it was crowd-sourced…aka it was created by and for the people – Into the Gloss posted January 2015 to their readers, “What’s Your Dream Face Wash?” All of the comments left and feedback was used by Glossier’s team to develop the best product ever. It’s gel-like and can be applied to wet (in the morning) or dry skin (to dissolve makeup after a long day). I love that it washes away makeup and takes a step out of the day for me. I no longer have to use a eye makeup remover!  It applies like a luxurious serum and my skin felt insanely fresher and softer after each use. Milky Jelly truly is a skin conditioner. It’s soft and it’s also totally OK if you don’t wash it completely off  and it soaks into your skin – since its free of parabens, soap, and sulfates.

Milky Jelly is a pH-balanced formula and ingredients like Poloxamer (used in contact lens solution), rosewater, comfrey root extract (which contains soothing properties), glyceryl cocoate to dissolve dirt & reduce friction, and moisturizing Aquaxyl and Pro-Vitamin B5, the Milky Jelly Cleanser is both gentle and conditioning enough to use twice a day and effective enough to remove any non-waterproof eye makeup. No tears or irritation if it gets in your eyes. Although it’s announced as fragrance-free, I do notice a very mild scent that’s actually super pleasant and reminds me of Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm.


Emily Weiss, founder of Glossier describes the cleanser as gel-ified micellar water. Obsessed with micellar water aka Bioderma (one of my favorite Parisian products) and Milky Jelly is similar in theory but so much better!
