A Glossier Duo For Plump Skin

A Glossier Duo For Plump Skin

With only a month to go until Glossier ships to the UK, its only fair that I share some of my fave finds to help you build up your wishlist. I'm smitten beyond belief with the brand (am sat here now in my cosy Glossier sweater - 10 fangirl points for me!), and now having tried most of the range I think I've nailed my skincare routine at long last. I very recently picked up a couple more Glossier products to amp up my routine so it's ready for autumn, and when paired together they make quite a formidable duo.

Face masks are a constant in my skincare routine, I spoke about this just a few days ago in my post on head to toe hydrating products, and as I said then, they make the biggest difference to complexion. It's the best 10-20 minutes I can spend on my skin to see truly dramatic results. I've wanted to try the Glossier Moon Moisturizing Mask for a while now, so I had to snap it up! It's a thick and cooling cream which transforms my skin into a much more plumper and smooth state in a matter of minutes. 20 minutes to be exact. It can also be left on overnight for an extra skin treat. I'm yet to try this but when the weather turns and my skin is in need of even more help I'll be trying that out for sure. The Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask is also jam packed full of ingredients that really deliver moisture, such as hyaluronic acid, squalane and sweet almond oil. As well as upping the hydration ante in my routine, the Moon Mask works to soothe the complexion with honey and aloe, whereas licorice root and lemon fruit extracts awaken and brighten. There's literally nothing this mask can't do - why didn't I buy it sooner?!

A Glossier Duo For Plump Skin

My skin is parched most of the year, but as we move into the chillier months it needs as much TLC as it can get on a daily basis. I've been enjoying light layers of skincare throughout the summer, but it's definitely time to start thinking about slightly thicker formulations to plump up my skin. The Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich is exactly that. I have the lighter version of this as well which I also adore, but this is an absolute game-changer. While the normal Glossier Priming Moisturizer is perfect for using as either a moisturiser or a primer (think Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate), it's rich sister is more suited to my dry and dehydrated complexion as an intensely nourishing moisturiser.

I tend to use this mainly in the morning, and while it is quite a rich cream as apposed to it's lighter lotion counterpart, it melts into the skin pretty quickly, leaving my skin plump and dewy. It includes an anti-redness complex which helps tone down any patchiness throughout the day and prime the skin for makeup. It also uses red algae to infuse the skin with moisture throughout the day and fatty acids that help the skin retain its moisture levels. I certainly have no qualms using it when it's a bit warm outside either as it isn't heavy. It makes a great night cream too, and it's also quite calming and relaxing to inhale it's scent, which is quite botanical and filled with lavender oil.

I'm so happy with this little duo, I can't praise either of these products enough! Will you be picking up either of these next month? If you can't wait until then, here's how I ship Glossier to the UK.
