As a Rep, one question I receive a lot is, “What are your favorite Glossier products?”
I love, love, looove Glossier makeup, don’t get me wrong, but when it comes to this cult-favorite brand (and beauty in general), I definitely choose skincare over makeup.
To celebrate my 1-year anniversary as a Glossier Rep (I can’t believe it either!), I’ll be dishing G-related content on Haute Mess all week long! And I figured there is no better place to start than with the basics: skincare. (After all, the brand’s motto is “Skin first, makeup second.”)
Though it is pretty difficult for me to narrow it down to just five great products, there are definitely some that stand out more than others.
You’ve already heard me talk about how great these products are in various posts throughout the past year (and beyond), so I’ll try my best not to blab too much about them here today 😉
Balm Dotcom: Ever since I started using Balm Dotcom, I have completely disregarded all other lip balms. A little goes an extremely long way with this long-lasting universal skin salve that (in addition to the original unflavored version) is available in five flavors: Birthday, Cherry, Coconut, Mint and Rose.
If I had to pick, Coconut would be my favorite, but Birthday is a close second. No matter which one I choose, however, these guys *always* have my back through tough workouts, long commutes and harsh weather.
Solution: To say that this chemical exfoliator changed the game for me would be a complete understatement.
For months I struggled with a huge problem area on one side of my forehead, and nothing I did seemed to provide real results–until I tried Solution.
After using this product every day for about six weeks, the problem area cleared up completely! Now, I use Solution 3 to 4 times per week to keep my skin even and clear.
Mega Greens Galaxy Pack: As I’ve said a million times, I am a total mask junkie–and Glossier’s is definitely in my top 3. Although Mega Greens is super gentle, it is effective. And the effects are noticeable as soon as it’s washed off.
The Kaolin clay sucks up impurities and excess oils, while the nutrients from greens like parsley, spinach and cress sprout protect the skin from environmental pollutants.
Mega Greens also contains an antioxidant blend of eight powerful, vitamin- and omega-rich super-fruits that protects the skin from damage. This mask truly lives up to Glossier’s claim that it is “like a juice cleanse for your face.”
Tiny specks of bitter orange peel gently exfoliate the skin, wiping away dead cells, and avocado oil and aloe ensure this exfoliating clay mask isn’t too irritating or drying.
Every time I wash Mega Greens off, my skin feels incredibly soft and clean, and it looks noticeably brighter, too! I always keep it in my medicine cabinet because I use it about once a week.
Invisible Shield: Invisible Shield SPF+ is another game-changing product for me!
I’ve been wearing sunscreen on my face during the summertime since I was about 20, but I was never happy about it. Other formulas, even from trustworthy brands like Clinique, left a white cast, felt greasy and irritated my eyes big time.
Now, thanks to Invisible Shield, I wear sunscreen every single day, no questions asked. I love how this clear, serum-like formula soaks into the skin almost instantly, providing a chemical barrier from the sun’s rays, as well as from free radicals and pollution. It goes completely undetected on the skin and feels like nothing!
Don’t be fooled by the small bottle, either. The serum-y formula spreads evenly to cover your whole face with as little product as possible.

Priming Moisturizer: This multitasking moisturizer does wonders for my complexion. After 23 years of avoiding moisturizers at all costs, I finally became a daily user about one year ago (shortly after I became a Glossier Rep, not-so-coincidentally)
I love Priming Moisturizer because, while moisturizing, it also reduces redness drastically and blurs imperfections. This product definitely makes me feel super confident about my skin. And, much like Balm Dotcom, a little goes a long way with Priming Moisturizer. So, it takes me a couple months to go through one tube.
