As some of you may know, last month when I was in New York I had the opportunity to visit the Glossier and Into The Gloss HQ. While it was such an exciting experience to attend their Summer Friday's Braid Bar, I was also able to purchased their Phase 1 Kit. The Phase 1 kit included: soothing face mist, priming moisturizer, perfecting skin tint, and their famous "BALM DOTCOM" universal skin salve. I had the option of buying their original Balm DOTCOM or the newest one which is the Coconut BALM DOTCOM. Of course I went with the Coconut balm because it smells very yummy!
Since I've been back from the Big Apple, I've been using these products individually and when I am on the go I like to use them all together because I can apply them all within 5 minutes. I'm going to tell you now that if you're looking for some products to use on your days off or just for those on the go days I think you'll love the Phase 1 Kit. I fell in love with the set because they are very light weight and easy to apply which is what I look for when I am purchasing products I can wear daily.
Here is my on the go routine with Glossier:
1. I start off with washing my face with Biore's deep pore charcoal cleanser. After patting my face dry I then close my eyes and spritz my face 3-4 times with Glossier's Soothing Face Mist. The face mist hydrates and preps my skin for my next step. I also like using the face mist throughout the day as a refresher especially being on the go it's a nice pick me up!
2. Now that I have sprayed my face with the Soothing Mist, I apply a generous amount of the Priming moisturizer on my palm and massage it onto my entire face. What I love about the priming moisturizer is that it's build-able and it's also a redness-reducing primer which means that it brings out the best in your skin and balances out any discoloration and or redness.
3. I am now ready for the Perfecting Skin Tint! The tint comes in 5 different shades, I use the medium shade. Before applying it I shake the bottle and then I squeeze about 10-15 drops (sounds like a lot but its not I promise!!) of the tint onto my palm and then I use my fingers to apply a thin, even layer onto my entire face. It is a low coverage and breathable which I think is my favorite quality that it holds. It's funny because when I wear regular foundation it hides all my freckles but using the Perfecting Skin tint it actually doesn't hide my freckles but it minimizes any discoloration while brightening my face also.
4. Last but not least.... Glossier's skin salve in coconut, the BOMB DOTCOM to say the least lol! I apply the balm last and what I like about this product in particular is that it's not a one purpose product. You can use it for your lips as a finishing touch to your look, you can dab it on to your cheekbones and or eyelids for the perfect natural and dewy highlight. In the pictures above I used the balm for my cheekbones, eyelids and my lips. Sometimes I even apply the balm to my cuticles. They don't call it the "universal skin salve" for nothing!
I went ahead and linked each product above just in case you guys were interested in purchasing them. I hope you all learned something new with my On-The-Go 5 minute ritual with Glossier.
