With skincare and makeup officially conquered, Glossier has moved on to their next phase of world domination: body care. If you live in a big city, you may have seen the ads, with beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, and skin colors proudly emboldening you to be a ‘Body Hero,’ the name of the new line. These products are the answer to a question I’ve often wondered about as a do my daily skincare routine: why is it that we’ll put so much effort into the skin on our faces, but wash and hydrate the rest of our bodies with any old product? Skin is skin, and it should all be taken care of! With a new fragrance (review coming soon), body wash, and lotion, Glossier is well on their way to helping us love all the skin we’re in!
Body Hero Oil Body Wash
The body wash has become a favorite shower ritual of mine, because the oil-to-creamy texture is so luxurious. Upon contact with water, the seven-oil blend lathers up without stripping your skin of its natural oils or messing with its pH levels. Sound familiar? It’s what a lot of face cleansers advertise for your precious facial dermis. Like most Glossier products, it is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested, and cruelty-free. It’s also soap-free, paraben-free, and vegan. It’s even safe for your most personal areas – gynecologist-approved!
Body Hero Perfecting Body Cream
Don’t let the name fool you: Glossier already knows our bodies are perfect as is; they’re just helping us enhance what we’ve got. The day that Glossier wants us to resent or hide our imperfections is the day hell freezes over. This body lotion’s light-reflecting particles will give you glistening skin and deep hydration, thanks to ingredients like cactus flower and prickly pear extract. Like most Glossier products, it’s also hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, paraben free, and cruelty-free.
With the holidays coming up (stay tuned for gift guides!), the Body Hero Duo (save $5 on the set) is a great present for anyone on your list!
