Glossier Review

Glossier is like the cool new restaurant in town that every foodie was raving about and there I was, standing outside the door all, “I’ve never tried it…but I hear it’s good!” A few Glossier items I’d been wanting to try were finally back in stock so I snatched them up and slam dunked them into my online cart. I only have 2 Glossier products, Boy Brow and Coconut Balm Dotcom, because everything else was out of stock, but I wanted to give you a quick review of each for the mean time.
Boy Brow in Brown
This reminds me a lot of Benefit’s Gimme Brow except way more affordable and cruelty free. It’s my go-to for create polished brows that boys like. By that, I mean that you certainly won’t be sculpting Instagram brows with this. This is a great product for low maintenance girls. It leaves brows subtly defined without feeling crunchy. It was inspired by mustache wax and I can totally see that in it’s more pomade-like texture. This is one brow product you can probably use in traffic. I used it in this tutorial if you’d like to see it on!

Coconut Balm Dotcom
I’m one of those weirdos who actually loves coconut water so I love the scent of this. It’s not an artificial scent; you know that suntan lotion type coconut. It’s a truly nutty coconut scent that isn’t too sticky sweet. I have been using this every single night before bed and I love it’s petroleum jelly texture but it’s way cooler. It has castor seed oil, beeswax and lanolin-all amazing ingredients for soothing and hydrating . You can use balm dotcom on other dry areas besides lips too. Try smoothing some over your brows and cheekbones in a pinch! I can’t wait to try the mint version next!

I love Glossier’s packaging, overall vibe and cruelty free, paraben-free products. They make makeup and skincare simple and approachable, two things I think we could all use more of in the beauty industry. I totally dig their presentation, including a reusable pink bubblewrap pouch, stickers (omg stickers!) and a poster! Now off I go to scoop up some Generation G and Haloscope!
