Glossier Priming Moisturizer Review

Beauty, Lifestyle, simplicity, skincare

Ok, I totally went MIA on Wednesday and yesterday and I apologize for that. I got so caught up in planning a party and posting just completely slipped my mind. I’m not really sure how I let this product get past me because I have been using it every day!

So I have been using the Glossier Priming Moisturizer for a few weeks now and I’m pretty much in love. The difference from when I use it and when I don’t is pretty incredible. My foundation or tinted moisturizer goes on SO much smoother and stays on longer too.

Here’s a little blurb about the Priming Moisturizer: “Priming” means that it instantly brings out the best in your skin, so you have a fresh, glowing canvas that’s ready for makeup (but looks so good you might want to wear less). The ideal base for Perfecting Skin Tint, it visibly plumps skin up with moisture to create cushiony bounce and an even texture, which helps minimize the appearance of pores—minus any heavy blurring ingredients. The anti-redness complex soothes and evens skin tone, leaving a clean, dewy, balanced finish. This comforting cream allows you to layer and build up to the perfect amount of moisture depending on climate, season, or how your skin’s feeling on any given day.

If you’ve ever painted on canvas before and use gesso… it’s kind of the same principle – you’re priming your canvas before creating your masterpiece. This is one of the first primers I’ve used that actually moisturizes AND primes and doesn’t leave my skin feeling strange. Pretty much any primer I’ve used in the past has dried my skin out or made it overly oily. In fact, I stopped using primer for about two years until I got my hands on this Glossier Priming Moisturizer.

The price of this moisturizer is pretty affordable retailing at just $25 for quite a bit of product because a little really does go a long way in this instance. I like to apply this morning only before putting on my makeup. This isn’t really a good nighttime moisturizer in my opinion because it is very lightweight.

This priming moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid which tends to take moisture from its surroundings so be sure when using this product, (or any product with hyaluronic acid) that your skin is already hydrated. You MAY need to apply a hydrating mist of some sort before applying this Glossier primer or else you may notice some dryness.

Overall, I am head over heels for this product! One of these days my whole skin care routine might be Glossier because I just love their whole simple skin care and make up aesthetic. I’m definitely going to be keeping this baby in my skin care arsenal and yes I will most likely be repurchasing! Thanks for reading!

Implementing My Routine

Decorating, Lifestyle, Minimalism, simplicity

Ok, so I am aware that I did not post on Friday. It was a very busy weekend that did not end too well, but I’m not going to let that stop me from getting up my posts this week! I planned on posting about how my routine for my room was going, but I’ll just do that today instead.

I wrote out a daily, weekly and monthly routine to keep my room nice and tidy. So far my daily routine is working out pretty well, but I’ve kind of slacked on my weekly routine except for my laundry. Hopefully this week I can actually do all of my clean room tasks.

My daily routine is just making up my bed and getting the glasses out of my room and into the dishwasher. I have a tendency to hoard glasses for some reason and it makes my room look so not neat. I also have a tendency to not put my shoes back on their shoe rack and leave my jackets on the foot of my bed.

My weekly routine consists of vacuuming and doing my laundry from washing all the way to folding. I despise folding my clothes just like everyone else…I’m trying to find a way where it’s cathartic rather than tedious. I also included tidying up any cluttered surfaces and watering my plants. I have a devil’s ivy plant and a bamboo plant that occasionally gets neglected.

By the time I reach my monthly routine, I shouldn’t have too much to do except vacuuming under my bed and other hard to reach areas. The rest of the tasks are things I may have to do if things aren’t really decluttered. If I pick up my room throughout the day and week then I won’t have to do too much on a monthly basis. I hope that all made sense.

I also want to dedicate some time to certain spots in my room that need to be cleaned or even decorated. I may even make blog posts about that because I really just want to simplify as well as organize my whole entire room. I really think that having a cleaning/organizing routine will help to achieve this goal in the long run. Let’s hope so anyway!

Thanks for reading.
