Glossier You Review

A fragrance. That is easily you. It’s everybody & anybody.

Glossier outlines the notes in this fragrance below – ambrox, ambrette, iris, musk. It feels like so much more than a fragrance, it’s a feeling. That reminiscent feeling when a scent brings you back to a moment in time. The best time. Let’s go there real quick, ok?

It. Will. Grow. On. You. It will also melt. into. your. skin.

At my first deep inhalation, I was shocked. Wowed. Not sure if I loved this. Gave it a minute and inhaled deeply by my wrist for the 2nd, 3rd time… I’m liking this more than I originally thought. It’s kinda sexy, in a non-sexy way.

Hard to describe, but easily appreciated.

The best part about this fragrance, which is very hard to describe is that it smells differently on each and every person that I’ve been around who has worn it. It adaptive and will change with you as you change, throughout the day. I’m for sure liking this scent on myself as the day goes on. You will not be disappointed!!

Some great ways to begin your journey with Glossier are by creating the Perfect Canvas : to keep your skin looking like skin. Build to the finish that you want.

  • Priming Moisturizer – lightweight, build-able moisture, redness reducing
  • Perfecting Skin Tint – undetectable enhancement to blur & brighten, sheer & lightweight – available in 5 shades
  • Stretch Concealer – flexible camo wherever you want it – over dark circles, onto pimples to to blend all over your skin
  • Wowder– light, airy formula cuts shine, sets makeup, blurs pores, looks like skin – and is not cakey – 3 sheer, adaptable shades

Boy Brow – you’ve probably seen this everywhere by now – it’s amazing. Great brow product, its not sticky or hard and it fluffs, combs and adds umphh to your brows. Available in 3 shades or clear! (I use brown & clear).

Balm Dot Com – Original flavor / scent. I use this a several times and day every single day. It’s the easiest balm for your lips, cuticles, elbows, etc. I LOVE THIS.

Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream – neroli-scented and goes on like a dream. Soaks into skin very quickly. Leaves skin feeling and looking glow-y. Love this lotion!

Cloud Paint – I use one or more of these shades every single day. It gives me a slight splash of color that I need when I’m feeling a little washed out. Can be applied under or over and with/without Wowder. Was a huge fan of Dusk to create definition in my cheeks all summer. Now that its fall and my tan is fading, I’m really into using Puff on the apples of my cheeks. Shades can be blended together and you need such a minimal amount so this really lasts quite a while. (Also on sale right now!)

Super Bounce – Under priming moisturizer or any moisturizer that you use. Serums are meant to be used after cleansing but before masking or moisturizing. This one is super hydrating and makes my skin feel good – like its actually working.

Glossier BODY HERO

Give your body what it needs!

A lot of us take specific care of our face (some, not all of us – but I’d like to think more of us reading this, since I write a lot about skincare and beauty products). Specific care meaning you probably own quite a bit of products that you rub, pat, spray, massage, dab into the skin on your face for a plethora of different reasons. I sure do.

But what many of us are/were missing (myself 100% included) is well thought out, luxurious, affordable skincare for the other 90% of us, our BODIES! Enter Glossier, surprise launching BODY HERO! (Body Hero Daily Oil Wash $18 + Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream $22 – or the Body Hero Duo at the cool price of $35 – $5 savings).


https://www.glossier.com/category/body

As a Glossier rep, I receive products pre-launch and get to try them out and share my opinions and reviews on social media or here for you guys to read about.


Alongside a BADASS campaign with women of diverse body types, shapes, skin colors – which I’m sure many of you have seen on Instagram or in the NY Times Style Section – GLOSSIER IS A MOVEMENT. Making beauty less commercialized and more real-life. Campaign images are to die for. There’s been countless posts on Instagram with the Body Hero sticker that comes with the purchase covering topless women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds. V fresh.


Upon first opening the Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream – I was overwhelmed by the scent! Liked it a lot but again, overwhelmed. It took me a few days of use for my nose to be trained to love the Neroli – scented lotion. It took me a few days of Instagram trolling to figure out that the scent was actually Neroli too (it’s been a while since I’ve worn my Tom Ford perfume). And the scent fades slightly but it’s still there after a full day @ work.

Overall really love Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream – it melts into your skin. And by melt, I mean it does NOT take forever to dry and you can get dressed immediately after using. Immediately. Like – how good is that? Biggest reason for not putting lotion on my legs everyday is because then I can’t put on pants / if its summer and I’m wearing a dress, will sweat off this lotion, etc. I love it.


Body Hero Daily Oil Wash is a major win for me. I have been using an oil body wash for years – typically use Dr. Bronner’s Lavender but am HAPPILY making the move to Glossier! Love the luxurious feel of the oils and how they get sudsy but don’t foam too much. My skin feels polished and really soft since using it in the shower and I’ve literally taken so many more showers lately because I’m really feeling the scent. Plus the pink pouch is XL!


If its your first purchase, shop using my link for 20% off and free shipping if you purchase 2+ items. Glossier is now offering a sale on the Boy Brow + Haloscope combo as well! No codes necessary, just click through any of my links on this page and begin searching for your Glossier products.

Things I’m Into

Summer 2017 has kept me on the move. The usual summer sunsets I’m watching, places I like to eat food and drink beverages, and things I’m purchasing because I’m a CONSUMER of all things. Below I’m sharing a few of the things I’ve been into lately.

Roast Coffee & Tea Trading Company – Patchogue, NY – Great spot on Main Street to stop when you have a little time to kill. Or time to enjoy.

Sagtown Coffee & other locations – Sag Harbor, NY 


Tuna Tartare from Lulu’s Kitchen & Bar – Sag Harbor, NY

Glossier Wowder – Using it everyday since I received. I’m a Glossier rep, so YOU receive 20% off when you shop using my link!

Sunsets, “somewhere in Montauk, NY” – enjoy the view!



Bandier Pop-Up at Blue Stone Lane, Montauk, NY – Plenty of gorgeous workout clothes, accessories, Tkees flip flops, SuperGoop skincare. Good vibes and really delicious Avo Toast.


Adam Mar, Shop in Montauk, NY – Obsessed with this little shop – beautiful aesthetic, great original clothing, mens & women’s – they even sell plants! It’s right around the corner from Montauk Brewing Co, so naturally I’ve stopped in more than once. Love that chair swing. And bought an awesome bamboo bag there that I’m obsessed with (pictured below).

 

Wowder! By Glossier

My go-to beauty brand, Glossier just launched Wowder! Not a powder. 

It’s not your ordinary setting powder. Leaves no white-cast and is offered in 3 sheer shades. I’m a Glossier rep, and was gifted the Light/Medium shade. I’m a huge fan of a setting powder even though I haven’t used one in over a year. 


STORYTIME! 

I fell in love with a setting powder called Moonshot by a Korean beauty brand that discontinued making it. Originally published in Emily Weiss’ Top Shelf, I became hooked after trying it. I ordered 2 and used them like they were going out of style. Once I ran out, I freaked out after not being able to find more. 😦 Nothing available on the black market (eBay).

In early May I talked to Emily Weiss about my troubles and not being able to find any replacements.  Her reply was “I got you.” 

Lo and behold, “she got me!” This is that powder. But nicer because it’s available in more shades! I’m obsessed. This does everything I want it to do. I use it on day where I don’t want that glossy look. When I’m over looking shiny. 

It looks amazing in photos! So you don’t look shiny or have a flash on your face. But also doesn’t make you look cakey either! Complete game changer. 

Love taking photos of Glossier products because they’re beautiful! 😍

Glossier Cloud Paint

Glossier Cloud Paint (☁️🎨) is dropping on March 2nd!! & because I’m a Glossier rep, I get a sneak peak of this newness to share with you! Review below…


Cloud Paint is a gel-cream formula that’s sheer, lightweight and buildable so you can apply as much as you want – no rules at Glossier! Application is easiest by just dabbing it on with your fingertips.

Beware! Comes out of the paint tube very quickly and a little goes a long way! From experience I can tell you that LESS IS ALWAYS MORE! You legit only need a very small squirt. 

Each shade is inspired by the gorgeous NYC sunsets which I’m sure you all have posted on your Instagram at some point. 


The formula is literally amazing, I’ll share more about that later but trust me, you’re going to love what it will do for your skin. While blush can be a makeup product that not everybody wears because it can look very strong or overdone, Glossier products do quite the opposite. If you’re afraid of blush or think it’s for a slightly older demographic, please please please let Cloud Paint be your product to open up to blush with! Trust. Ask me anything you can think of. 

Moisture and hydration without streaks is the main reason I can get down with this blush. It adds just the right amount of flush to make you look healthy and alive!

Some behind the scenes imagery of naming these beautiful shades. 


The 4 Shades 

Puff light pink that gives a very slight flush and is pretty and brightening.  Not an everyday choice for me, but I see this working great on lighter skintones. 

Beam coral-peach shade, think lots of energy and sunshine, top pick for me! Will use this the most often for sure, especially in summer!

Dusk brown nude shade that can help create a contour if you’re into that and add some definition if you have a deeper skintone

Haze beautiful deep berry color that gives enough flush without making you look awkwardly red. Huge fan of this! Gives that post-workout glow without any of the effort. I like this on all skintones!


Plus if you shop with me you get 20% off your order and free shipping over $30!

The Supers! *NEW* glossier

Being a friend of Glossier is always a good thing. Always. A group of us were invited to test out and pre-launch the 3 new Glossier serums, named “The Supers.” They are legitimately 100% super. The theory behind the 3 different types of serums are that real people don’t have just one “skin type” or skin concern. Sometimes you’re skin is dry, sometimes dull, sometimes red – and the different serums give you the opportunity to work with different products/ingredients for those different concerns. :: intrigued :: 

unnamed-2

$28 each or $65 for all 3 serums

Packaging is beautiful – 100% on point, per usual Glossier standards – v v, clean.

unnamed-1

These serums are great for combination skin – AKA me. AKA EVERYONE.

Super Bounce – hyaluronic acid & vitamin b5 serum – for tight, rough skin. I put this under eyes and above my lips. Great for hangovers and long flights when you need a little extra moisture and soft skin. It’s a bit more rich / creamy and has tightening properties.

Super Glow – vitamin C and magnesium serum – to brighten & energize dull, tired skin. Will be experimenting with this more in weeks to come. I’ve started putting this on my cheeks and forehead more over the past few days and it makes my skin look and feel brighter.

Super Pure – niacinamide & zinc serum – for calming breakout-prone skin & redness. I love this one! Very liquidy, almost like water but smoother. I put this all over my chin since that’s where I’ve been breaking out lately. Ingredients are great for healing & anti inflammation.

They are designed to be used together for combination skin – which is everyone. I use the super pure on my chin, glow everywhere, and bounce on my cheeks and around the eyes. Glow I’ve used all over.

unnamed-5

Available September 12

They work. I’ve already noticed a difference in my skin. I’ve never used serums before (which could be why) but I’m loving the way my skin looks and feels over the past few days.

And here are The Supers in a freaking tree, so they must be magical.
