HEY GLOSSIER

I'VE BEEN WANTING TO TRY GLOSSIER FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW, BUT HAVEN'T GOTTEN AROUND TO ORDERING IT (I AM THE WORST WITH SKINCARE). THE ONLY FACIAL PRODUCT I'VE ALWAYS USED IS FACE WASH. AND WHEN IT COMES TO MAKEUP, SOMEHOW I'M EVEN WORSE. I'VE NEVER LOVED MAKEUP LIKE MOST GIRLS DO. I HATE HOW IT FEELS AND IT'S JUST A SUPER LONG PROCESS I HAVE ZERO PATIENCE FOR. PLUS, I'M A FRECKLES GIRL- SO I'VE NEVER LIKED THE IDEA OF COVERING THEM UP. 

I'VE HAD MY BOUTS WITH ADULT ACNE (WAY COOL) AND OTHER THAN FINDING A TREATMENT FOR THAT, I'VE GIVEN THE BEAUTY BUG THE BACKSEAT. TO BE TOTALLY HONEST I WAS NERVOUS TO TRY ANYTHING ON MY FACE SINCE I FIGURED I WOULD JUST BREAKOUT. LUCKILY, THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA, I'VE COME ACROSS A FEW GIRLS THAT SHARE SIMILAR WOES WITH ACNE. I HAVE TO ADMIT IT'S THROUGH THEIR EXPERIMENTING THAT I DECIDED TO GIVE GLOSSIER A GO. (SHOUT OUT TO LISBETH OF @IMLVH! SHE'S DONE A BUNCH OF YOUTUBE REVIEWS OF FASHION AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS AND ALSO FACES ADULT ACNE EVERY NOW AND THEN)

Invisible Shield

WHAT REALLY DREW ME IN TO GLOSSIER WAS THEIR RECENT LAUNCH OF INVISIBLE SHIELD: A FACIAL SUNSCREEN OF SPF 35 DESIGNED WITHOUT A CREAMY DEMEANOR TO LEAVE YOUR FACE FEELING LIKE YOU ACTUALLY HAVE NOTHING ON. I AM OUTSIDE EVERYDAY FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES OR MORE RUNNING SO I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE BEST SPF FOR BOTH FACE AND BODY. AND SINCE MY FACE HATES EVERYTHING, IT'S HARD TO FIND A FACIAL SUNSCREEN THAT DOESN'T MAKE ME LOOK LIKE I HAVE THE CHICKEN POX. CUE GLOSSIER'S INVISIBLE SHIELD. I WAITED TO BUY IT, READ REVIEWS AND WATCHED THE RESPONSE FROM BEAUTY BLOGGERS ALIKE AND DECIDED IT WAS A GO. I. AM. SO. HAPPY. I. GOT. IT. SERIOUSLY- IT'S FANTASTIC. IT'S PRACTICALLY WEIGHTLESS, SMELLS LIKE HAPPINESS AND SUNSHINE AND ACTUALLY PROTECTS MY SKIN FROM THE SUN. IT HASN'T IRRITATED MY SKIN OR CAUSED A BREAKOUT YET AND I'M HOPING IT STAYS THAT WAY AS WE ROLL INTO SUMMER. THIS IS SOMETHING I LOOK FORWARD TO PUTTING ON DAILY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Super Pure

THE OTHER PRODUCT I WAS ANXIOUS TO TRY WAS SUPER PURE. GLOSSIER'S MOTTO IS SKINCARE FIRST. MAKEUP SECOND. SMILE ALWAYS. AND WITH SUPER PURE, I FIND THIS TO BE SPOT ON. SUPER PURE IS A GENIUS SERUM FILLED WITH NIACINAMIDE AND ZINC-  A.K.A. THE ELIXER FOR FREAKED OUT SKIN. WHEN I APPLY IT, IT MAKES ME FEEL CONFIDENT A BLEMISH WON'T POP UP AND IF IT DOES IT'LL REDUCE IT'S REDNESS AND MAKE IT GO AWAY FASTER. MY SKIN INSTANTLY FEELS TIGHTER AND A BIT TINGLY AS IT DRIES. SO FAR I'VE APPLIED IT AFTER I WASH MY FACE MORNING AND NIGHT AND FOLLOW UP WITH A MOISTURIZER BEFORE PUTTING ON ANY MAKEUP.

Cloud Paint

Shop here

I ALSO GRABBED A CLOUD PAINT BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING FOR A WAY TO ADD SOME LIFE TO MY FACE WITHOUT NEEDING A BRUSH AND BLUSH. IT'S SO EASY TO USE THE TINIEST BIT FROM THE TUBE TO INSTANTLY GIVE LIGHT TO YOUR FACE. PLUS IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE YOU'RE WEARING ANYTHING AND IS COMPACT IN SIZE SO IT'S EASY TO KEEP IT IN ANY BAG. 

I'M EXCITED TO KEEP EXPERIMENTING WITH THEIR PRODUCT. FEELING LIKE YOU WANT TO GIVE GLOSSIER A TRY? YOU CAN RECEIVE 20% OFF YOUR FIRST ORDER WHEN YOU SHOP WITH ME! ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CLICK HERE.
