The inevitable has happened - Glossier has finally found its way to the blog.

I suppose in exchange for New York snatching away a dear friend (and still somehow not permitting me to find my way over there), a little new skincare is an okayish peace offering. I was so excited for the day I'd get to try my first Glossier product, so when the little pink bubble wrapped parcel arrived on my desk, there was a little bit of nervous anticipation. Would it live up to the hype? Would it have been worth the wait? Where would I stick the free emoji stickers?

Let's keep this quick and dirty because I know you're all busy individuals with your own lives to get back to - this cleanser is awesome. Here's why -
  • It does an incredible job of removing make up
  • It's simple and hydrating
  • Rather than being a foaming wash, this is actual jelly - the texture is wobbly. It's unlike anything I've ever come across and makes cleansing an interesting experience! It doesn't strip skin at all but rather nourishes it
  • It leaves skin soft and plump to the touch
This cleanser has relegated my Pixi x Caroline Hirons cleanser to my drawer because it is that good - and to be clear, I love the dual phase cleanser by Pixi. Where this beats it is ease - I have never met a cleanser so easy to get onto and off of my mug. This will please skincare newbs and addicts like myself alike - it's paraben free, soap free, fragrance free, sulphate free and importantly - cruelty-free. My only slight gripe is the scent - as there's a high rosewater content, this does smell strongly of rose. If that's your bag then go for it, but sometimes it does catch me off-guard. Having said that, it's nowhere near enough to stop me from using this as my daily morning and evening cleanser.

An ethical brand at a price point I like with products this good is so worth the hype. Hurry up, Glossier, and get to the UK pronto!

Have you guys tried any Glossier? What would you recommend?

  1. I have this + some other Glossier bits (the Cloud Paints are my fave) and you're right, I wasn't expecting such a strong scent of rose! I love the texture of this; not too sure whether it does anything more than gives your face a good cleanse but I do like it as a basic cleanser for minimal makeup days!

    Glossier is supposed to launch in UK soon right? Hopefully they bring over some of their cool stuff!

    1. I'm SO desperate to try the Cloud Paints! You're right - it is a great basic, keeps things simple and does what it does well. I was pretty impressed at how well it took off my make up to be honest, very often I don't even need a second cleanse, even with what I would consider 'heavy' make up!

      I am counting down the minutes, literally. The sooner the better!

      Thanks for reading and commenting Cherie! T xx
