Skincare systems are all the rage. A system prevents us from combining the wrong products that lead to dry, oily, or acne ridden skin. They simplify your beauty routine, and can be tailored to your skin’s needs. Unfortunately, they are expensive, involved, and often too much for a busy-girl lifestyle. Luckily, brands like Glossier, are working to simplify skincare.
Glossier is changing the way women care for their skin, and I’m obsessed.
Recently, a friend on a mission for skin improvement, ordered a set of Glossier pod masks, and gave me a duo to review. Their Mega Greens Galaxy Pack and Moisturizing Moon Mask are the best masks I’ve ever used.
Developed to detoxify and moisturize, the masked are used together, 20 minutes of the Mega Greens followed by 20 minutes of the Moisturizing Moon. Forty minutes is a pretty small sacrifice for better skin.
Starting with the Mega Greens, it applied like other clay masks, but didn’t tighten my face as it dried. Over the 20 minutes it went from a light green to almost clear, as it drew impurities and excess oil from my skin.
Usually clay masks leave me unable to move my jaw as they dry, but not the Glossier mask!
After the 20 minutes, I rinsed and my skin felt fresh and rejuvenated, not like I just had a bad face lift.
Applying the Moisturizing Moon was like applying a heavy moisturizer that slowly sunk into my skin. By the time my 20 minutes was up, most of the mask was absorbed, and my face was dewy and glowing.
I rinsed my face, applied a few drop of Argan oil and went to sleep.
I woke up with the skin of my dreams.
My face looked moist, but not oily. It felt softer than the skin of a baby. It looked so fantastic I didn’t even need foundation. Even better, my friend’s been using the duo for weeks, and her skin has completely turned around, so I’m sold.

Peace. Love. and Bobby Pins.
