Glossier is one of those brands that you see here and there but don’t really know much about. When I checked out the website I fell in love with the cute branding style of the company. I waited a while before I purchased anything and when I started to hear about how great the Milky Jelly Cleanser was, I knew that was going to be my first purchase.
The Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is an amazing product. In just a few weeks it’s quickly become my go-to cleanser. I secretly hate that I cant just walk into a store and pick it up but I love it so much that I’ve already set a reminder for myself to reorder this once I get down to a certain amount. It’s that serious.
I use this cleanser at night. I still use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup as the first step of my nightly skin care routine. My next step is to use a cleanser to take the remaining makeup off and cleanse my face. This cleanser is a true jelly like consistency. It feels weird at first but then you get used to it. I love how it feels and how it spreads evenly all over my face and doesn’t dissolve so quickly like other cleansers. It also feels a bit thick so I believe that helps with it spreading so evenly and not dissolving.
Here’s a description from the Glossier site:
This is the ultimate daily face wash: use on dry skin to dissolve away makeup and grime, or on wet skin as you start your day. The pH-balanced, creamy gel formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners so your face is left feeling healthy and soft, never tight. Its cleansing power comes from the same gentle cleaning agents you’d find in contact lens solution, so it’s tough on impurities and still safe to use on your eyes. You’ll see.
I personally haven’t used this to remove my makeup but I’m sure, because of the consistency, that it would work well for that as well. If you’re looking for something new and different to try in your skincare routine I highly recommend this product.

The Glossier Balm Dotcom in Coconut is the lip balm that I purchased as just something random to try out. I actually saw a few beauty videos on YouTube where vloggers raved about this product but I never paid much attention to it. They have an original non flavored one and 4 flavored ones. I purchased the coconut flavor since I love most anything coconut.
Here is a description from the Glossier site:
Our cult favorite skin salve is now available in four mood-enhancing flavors: Rose (with a barely-there pink tint), Cherry (with a sheer, juicy red tint), Mint, and Coconut. It’s the same super dense formula as the original, updated with luxe scents for every occasion. The lip-smacking, 11-year-old in you is freaking out right now.
To be completely honest, I would pass on the lip balm. For me, It just doesn’t do anything for my lips. Maybe it would work well for someone who just needs something to keep their lips lightly moisturized but I need a lot more intense moisture. I feel like it just sits on top of my lips and doesn’t penetrate like I prefer. I keep it in my purse as back up just in case I need it.
It’s clear that the Milky Jelly Cleanser is the star of this show! I will most definitely be purchasing this product many times in the future.
