Detox and/or hydrate your skin with Glossier‘s two latest star products, the Moisturizing Moon Mask to plump, hydrate, and smooth the skin, and the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack, which helps you to get rid of excess oil and impurities ($22 each). For me, hydration is essential, as even my normal dose of moisturizer isn’t cutting it when it has to compete with the wind, ultra-low, frigid temps, and indoor heating blasting on me. Using natural emollients and brighteners (such as licorice root and lemon extract), the masks are gentle and appropriate for all skin types, even sensitive ones like mine. Plus, the packaging is super slick, and looks great resting by its lonesome on the corner of my bathroom sink.
If you aren’t familiar with Glossier, its the brainchild of Emily Weiss, beauty blogger and founder of the wildly successful site Into The Gloss. The concept behind the brand is to represent the epitome of what’s needed and used, effective and of high quality, starting with the most important foundation of them all — skincare.
The brand launched with four core products (otherwise known as Glossier Phase 1 Set products, available in three skin tones): soothing face mist, priming moisturizer, balm dotcom, and perfecting skin tint. I’m obsessed with them all, but have to relay that the lip balm (balm dotcom; $12) just feels so wonderfully soothing and indulgent in this weather, great for skin that needs a little soothing besides your lips, which can be around your nails and cuticles, elbows, etc. I hope that your skin gets the nutrients that it needs and you feel as great as it looks!
