Some background: Glossier was created by a group of beauty editors that have (literally) tried everything out there and know what works.
“Beauty products for real life”
I discovered Glossier through a Snapchat story by Refinery 29. Glossier had just came out with the flavored Balm Dotcoms and R29 predicted that they were going to break the internet. And since I’m such a curious cat, I researched on the brand and found their website and youtube page.
What convinced me to try the Balm Dotcoms were the youtube videos Glossier put out. The videos were of girls, cool girls if I might add, showing what their daily beauty regimen was like. It was Glossier in action and I ate up every second of it. My initial thought after exploring the youtube and website was “I WANT TO BE A GLOSSIER GIRL” and needless to say, the rest was history.
What I love about the brand is the “skin first, make up second.” philosophy. I admit that I didn’t start a real skincare regimen up until a couple of years ago only. To this day, my routine is imperfect (I still dislike using toner and sunscreen) and honestly, it can be intimidating because skincare is far from cheap. Though there are affordable products in the market, if you really want to give your skin the best fighting chance, it is better to invest in products that will give you long-lasting results.
