The Glossier Girl is all about the natural, fuss-free, “no makeup” makeup look. Created by beauty blogger Emily Weiss in 2014, Glossier has firmly adhered to its pro-skin philosophy: to make products that enhances your natural beauty rather than conceal it. Though they’ve only been around for a short span of three years, Glossier has already amassed an impressive following, especially in the realm of social media.
If you’re not familiar with Glossier, it’s probably because they don’t have a physical presence in Singapore yet. Fret not! You can still purchase some Glossier products from Blushboss or make use of overseas shopping services like Airfrov.
Your next step is probably figuring out which star products from them you should try, and that’s why we’ve put together the top 13 Glossier products that will help you up your beauty game, based on online reviews.
1. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This low-pH “ultimate daily face wash” claims to be gentle on your skin yet tough on makeup and grime. According to Glossier, this cleanser saves you precious time, since you can take off your makeup and cleanse your skin at the same time, though some have found that double cleansing is still necessary.
Others have said that this cleanser is best used in the morning to prep and hydrate your skin before the rest of the day. It is suitable for those with dry or sensitive skin.
2. Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack/Glossier Moisturising Moon Mask
Use the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack to detoxify, or the Moisturising Moon Mask for a hydration boost. Better yet, pamper your skin and use both in one sitting! Be sure you use the Galaxy Pack first, rinse and dry your face, then proceed with the Moon Mask.
The Galaxy Pack is designed to be a “juice cleanse” for your skin. It provides much-needed vitamins to your face while calming down acne and redness. Its partner, the Moon Mask, plumps up skin while gently brightening your complexion.
Online reviews are split down the middle though: while the Galaxy Pack gave many users smoother and softer skin and the Moon Mask worked wonders for some who have dehydrated, sensitive skin, there were a group of users who complained that the masks broke them out.
3. Glossier Priming Moisturiser
The name of this product already heralds its multi-tasking nature: it’s meant to prime and moisturise your face at the same time. However, users have reviewed that it performs better as a moisturiser, rather than as a primer meant to help your makeup last longer.
The formula is also buildable, so you can customise the hydration level to your skin’s needs. Online reviews also suggest that the non-greasy formula works well to hydrate skin underneath makeup.
That being said, some of the ingredients in this product have been reported to trigger adverse reactions for those with sensitive skin.
4. Glossier Balm Dotcom
If you’re a fan of the coveted Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, this one may give you a holy grail alternative. The Glossier Balm Dotcom is a lip treatment that will provide a much-needed layer of moisture-locking balm for your lips.
It doesn’t just have an aesthetically pleasing packaging – this product is also a veritable lifesaver for dry skin or cuticles, as it can also be applied as a skin salve. This cult favourite comes in six versions, five of which are flavoured. Of these five, two are tinted.
5. Glossier Boy Brow
Possibly one of Glossier’s most famous items, the Boy Brow is an all-in-one brow product that will fulfil all your brow desires. It grooms your brows while filling them in, giving them a fuller appearance.
Reviewers agree that this brow gel makes it a breeze to achieve neat, natural-looking brows (or as we say, eyebrows on fleek). The Boy Brow is available in four shades and works as a conditioner for your eyebrow hairs too.
6. Glossier Stretch Concealer
With this concealer, Glossier wanted to create something that would never look cakey or dry on the face even after hours of wear. This buildable formula achieves that easily, providing a dewy finish while covering up dark circles, redness, and other blemishes.
Users love that they don’t look like they’re wearing a ton of makeup with this concealer, since it looks just like skin (but better). Available in five shades.
7. Glossier Wowder
Here’s the latest product in the Glossier lineup. Available in three shades, this wonder powder eliminates shine while giving a “glowy-matte” finish. It also doesn’t have flashback, so it’s perfect for photos.
8. Glossier Cloud Paint
Who can resist such a cute name? Cloud Paints are cheek tints in a gel-cream formula which blends effortlessly on the skin. These sheer yet buildable pigments are designed to work on most skin tones and give off a healthy glow from within.
This reviewer describes the attractive subtlety of the Cloud Paint perfectly when he says: “Blush isn’t a destination, it’s a journey”.
9. Glossier Haloscope
We all know by now that glow is in. What better way to get your glow on than with a little bit (or a lot) of highlighter? Glossier understands glowy skin better than most, so they’ve released a dewy-effect stick highlighter that comes in three shades.
Each haloscope comes with a moisturising core that will hydrate while the outer halo imparts the perfect amount of shine, every single time. Reviews online show that this highlighter is a game changer for many, although some with acne-prone skin said that the formula made them break out.
10. Glossier Soothing Face Mist
As a makeup refresher or mid-day spritz, this product contains ingredients like rosewater, aloe, and glycerin that will guarantee a moisture boost when you feel like you desperately need one. Besides being super easy to use, reviewers have reported that the mist soothes and calms down the skin as intended. Just be careful not to get it into your eyes!
11. Glossier Super Pure
Sometimes, your skin just feels congested and stressed. This is where Super Pure comes in to soothe redness and calm blemishes with its niacinamide and zinc components. The light formula is easily absorbed into the skin and is said to keeps troubled skin at bay with regular use.
12. Glossier Super Bounce
If it contains the hyaluronic acid – the holy grail ingredient for hydration – you know it’s good. Super Bounce is a concentrated serum containing not only hyaluronic acid but also vitamin B5 to plump up and rehydrate skin.
Naturally, this is best suited for dry or mature skin, but this product still packs a punch and can even be used as a primer to smooth out skin before applying makeup.
13. Glossier Super Glow
Key ingredients like Vitamin C and magnesium revitalises skin cells, while brightening up and evening out your complexion, so why not? While you shouldn’t necessarily be using this product everyday (users have said that it seems to cause breakouts with overuse), you’ll be impressed with the lit-from-within glow that comes on whenever you apply this serum.
