I know what you’re thinking. Yeah, the Glossier train is not slowing down right now. In my recent purchase for some skincare staples, I picked up the Glossier Priming Moisturizer. As someone who is really into moisturizers, this product had some high standards to live up to. Did it live up to the hype?
Glossier Priming Moisturizer
As with the rest of the Glossier products I have tried, this is really gentle on your skin. The weather where I live has been crazy. Finding the perfect moisturizer is something that I set as a goal every year. New year, new moisturizer, right? This moisturizer is incredibly moisturizing, but is not heavy at all. My skin is usually pretty decent, but if I use a product that is too heavy, my skin will break out like Rosa from OITNB. The consistency is not thick at all, but is packed with some pretty intense hydrating components. I can wear this under my makeup, no problem.
Something that I love about Glossier is that the brand is cruelty free, as well as being hypoallergenic. In addition to the gorgeous packaging, Glossier has values that I really appreciate. Especially when the resources we have available are pretty incredible. Back to the product! This product can also be layered to make it as thick or thin of a layer as you like. Glossier Priming Moisturizer absorbs insanely quickly, and I can put it on right before bed without it winding up on my sheets!

What’s in it then?
I’m glad you asked! This is packed full of ingredients to hydrate and soothe your skin. It includes Vitamins A, C, and E which have antioxidants and fight the signs of aging. Snow mushroom actually helps promote hydration, and I mean…isn’t that the point of a moisturizer? Glossier Priming Moisturizer utilizes Boswella as an anti-inflammatory, which will help to calm redness. Especially with this incredibly dry heat that I am having to use right now, that is something that has been a serious pain to deal with. If you have read any of my beauty posts, then you know all about my severe love for hyaluronic acid too!
Shea butter is an ingredient which is known for it’s moisturizing properties, and is found in some pretty luxurious beauty products too. That ingredient gives Glossier Priming Moisturizer a really luxurious feeling on the skin. I had never heard of radish root before this product, but it helps protect against skin damage. As someone who is frequently out in the elements, or just into wild situations, I am all about protecting my skin! That means less work for the future, right?
I am loving Glossier at the moment, what products do you want to try?
