Glossier is a beauty brand with a difference. Their approach to beauty is based around using the thoughts, opinions and feedback from the people who use their products to inspire their improvements and inventions. The company was founded with the focus that beauty is about celebrating the individual and that personal choice in products should be determined by the user of them, not the brand. You'll know what works best for your skin, and Glossier offers a range of products that you can choose from to get the most suitable. I can resonate with where the brand is coming from as I've often tried products from other brands 'because that's what I should be using' only to find it doesn't actually work for my skin or style and I go back to what I know works for me. I'm excited to try out some products Glossier have sent to see how they are. The Lash Slick Film Form Mascara (£14) is designed as an everyday mascara to emphasise, sculpt, curl and lengthen your lashes rather than clumping them together. It has mini fibres that cover your lashes from the root right through to the tip to lengthen them. The mascara is also water-resistant but will still rinse off nice and easy with some warm water at the end of the day. I liked the feel of the wand on this mascara as the bristles are gentle on the lashes which makes it pleasant to use.

I also tried out a couple of the Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve (£10), one in Berry and one in Rose. They also offer 6 other colours that each give their own subtle tint. These products can be used as lip balm or skin ointment, with the natural moisturiser and antioxidants contained within meant to help with dry and chafed skin. I've been using the Rose one a lot recently and was impressed at how long it lasted, along with noticing my lips are a lot smoother than before. The Milky Jelly Cleanser Conditioning Face Wash (£15) is designed as a product to use daily for freshening up in the morning or remove makeup and dirt in the evening. It leaves your skin feeling soft and healthy and can also be used around your eyes. This cleanser also comes in a mini size (£8) which would be ideal to throw in your travel bag. Another skincare product I received was the Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen + (£20). It has a clear watergel formula that is perfect for those who don't like wearing suncream as it soaks straight into the skin, is not greasy and with SPF 30 you'll be protected against harmful sun rays. An additional feature of this product is that it "works to neutralize harmful free radicals, and keeps pollutant junk from getting in". 

Brow products are one of my stable items due to my blonde eyebrows meaning I always need to fill them in, so I was pleased to have the Boy Brow Grooming Pomade (£14) to try as this is so much quicker to apply compared to a powder or pencil. This one comes in four different shades, I received the blonde and the brown shade, and it's designed to be a product that can groom, thicken and shape your brows to where you want them. It has a creamy wax formula that will hold your brows in place without causing them to flake or harden. The blonde Boy Brow has impressed me a lot and has become a daily staple for me. A lot of blonde brow products tend to have a warm tone to them, which can come across as 'strawberry blonde' which is not helpful to someone with ashy blonde hair. Now and again I do dye my hair different colours so I'll come to use the brown shade, but for now, I'm really impressed with the colour and applicator of this product. 

The Lip Gloss (£11) comes in three different shades; a Clear, Holographic and the Red, which I received, which will give a "subtle, sheer tint". The applicator is designed to pick up the perfect amount to allow for an easy and smooth application. It's been years since I've worn a lip gloss but it was a pleasant switch up and a welcome change. The last product I received was the Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Colour (£15) in the Puff shade. It's super easy to apply the gel-cream with your finger to add some colour to your cheeks and with this product, it's a sheer enough help you look naturally flushed. I was hesitant when I saw the cloud paint in the bag as I'm not one to stray away from powder blushes because I'm used to them and know the right amount to apply. After testing this out I was relieved to find that it gives a natural look and is easy to build up, it will just take a little getting used to the amount needed. Thank you to Glossier for sending some of their favourite products to try. I've been really impressed so far and I'm already starting to look into which products to buy in the future.
