The Glossier Phase 1 Set


Glossier products are one of the few things that I will constantly check if they are back in stock.  I had been waiting ages for the restock of the Glossier Phase 1 set and just my luck that day finally happened about a month ago. On another fortuitous note, both my cleanser and moisturizer were running out so I actually needed to restock. The set comes with Glossier's four essential skincare products and costs $80, which saves some money than if you were to buy all of these separately.

The newest addition to the Phase 1 set is the Milky Jelly Cleanser, which is a gentle facial cleanser that you can both use in the morning and at night. While it is a very basic cleanser in a lot of respects, the consistency is definitely unique. While I am not normally a gel cleanser kind of person (I generally find them to be drying and soapy), I really love this one because it feels really moisturizing and it turns into a milk rather than a foam. I also find that this cleanser works equally well in the morning as well as at night when I have to remove my makeup (although it won't remove waterproof mascara).

I was also pleasantly surprised with the Priming Moisturizer. As someone with combination/leaning on oily skin I was a little bit worried that this moisturizer might make me look a bit too dewy for my liking. However, I actually found this moisturizer to work really well with my skin type. The texture is on the thicker side but once rubbed into the skin it sinks it pretty quickly. This moisturizer also makes my skin look super healthy, as in, not too matte and not too shiny. While it does claim to be priming, I wouldn't say that this moisturizer does a particularly good job at improving the longevity of your makeup but it is really nice to apply makeup over. One word of warning though, if you are acne-prone or have sensitive skin in general you may want to give this product a skip because shea butter is on the ingredients list.

Out of the four products in the phase 1 set Balm Dotcom is without a doubt my favorite. It is a very rich and emollient balm that can be used on really dry patches, cuticles, or as a lip balm. I usually use this as a lip balm more than anything else and it is easily one of the best lip balms I have ever tried (possibly even better than the Dior Creme de Rose lip balm). It is extremely hydrating and I find that even after it wears off (which takes a while because it is very rich) my lips are in far better condition, and that's saying something because I have eternally chapped lips.

If you like light coverage bases then the Perfecting Skin Tint is your guy! Don't buy this product expecting a full whack of coverage because you are just not going to get that from this. However, while this skin tint is light coverage I find that it evens out redness really well and makes your skin look incredibly natural and dewy, think of it as a "your-skin-but-better" product.

Have you tried any Glossier products?
