Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in beauty and style. Hope you have a nice stay!

Glossier // Priming Moisturizer RICH

Glossier // Priming Moisturizer RICH

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I think you get what you pay for when it comes to skincare. Well, Glossier just slapped me around and called me stupid. Their latest debut in their skincare line, the Priming Moisturizer Rich is simply lovely. I am, officially, a super-fan of this cream.

I feel like a broken record, but because I don't fall into the typical Glossier demographic, this is the perfect day cream for me to wear alone or underneath makeup. I need something much more moisturizing for night. What can I say... I'll be 44 this year, and I've always had dry skin, exacerbated by aging and now living in the desert.

But what I will say is that I've had a much harder time finding the right day cream than night cream. It's easy to stop by any department store counter and say I want the most moisturizing cream you have and bam - lots of hundreds of dollars later, you've got an awesome night cream. A day cream for me has to moisturize, but not leave my skin feeling greasy or left with any residue. This is a super tall order. I'm either left with a greasy face, or something where my face feels dry within the hour. But Glossier has come to the rescue!

For more than a week I've been wearing it alone, over serums, under makeup and I love it. It's worked perfectly every time. It leaves my skin satiny soft, but doesn't interfere with any makeup I've layered atop. It also doesn't feel like it starts to melt when it starts to get hot. It absorbs into the skin and stays there. Truly impressive.

The texture is very thick and creamy... very rich as its name would suggest.

And the scent is mild. The scent is very reminiscent of an herbal, spa scent and dissipates quickly.

Seriously. This stuff is good. Big thumbs up!!!
