Glossier Bestsellers: Hits & Misses


glossier bestsellers review

Because "no makeup" makeup is a form of art too

Foreword

In today's review we are going to play with some of Glossier most-coveted makeup and skincare products. Despite being a makeup lover, I still enjoy a good "I woke up like this" low-maintenance moment. I thought it was my mission to try as many of these millennial-pink goodies as possible, see what is worth the hype [and what isn't] and report back to you guys. Curious? Then please keep on scrolling.

Invisible Shield

This sunscreen was created with people like me in mind (i.e. those of us, who hate sunscreen). Most formulas conflict with makeup, so I can't even begin to explain just how grateful I am that brands started coming up with clear sunscreens. Invisible Shield (25 USD; Made in USA) is a broad spectrum SPF 35, which comes in a handy little container with a pump. It has a clear, gel-like consistency and [practically undetectable] lemony scent. You might notice some very fine micro-capsules packed with UVA/UVB filters running through it; they burst and absorb quickly, leaving no sticky/white residue. Oh, Invisible Shield is also infused with Vitamins E & P, Broccoli and Aloe (this product is suitable for vegans).

Final Thoughts: this is my second favourite sunscreen, right after Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen (you know, one that I swear by). I love how refreshing, lightweight and moisturizing it feels on the skin. It works great with all of my foundations/concealers; never peels or moves around. I am loving this new discovery of mine and give it A+.
