Glossier Showroom Visit + REVIEW!

While I was in New York I had the chance to stop by the Glossier Showroom near Soho. To be honest, I had not jumped on the Glossier bandwagon yet. I see so many bloggers and people talking about how great Glossier products were. But, for me it's hard to try a new beauty brand without seeing or trying the products in person. So, it was great to see the Glossier Showroom and see the products first hand. 

While I was at the showroom I picked up two Glossier products! First I picked up the Balm Dot Com in rose. This is a super thick lip balm that feels a lot like Vaseline. It goes on really thick, but really moisturizes your lips. I've used it a few times and I do think it makes a difference in the appearance of my lips. But, my only complaint is that you have to apply it with your finger, which I am not a huge fan of. I just find it not sanitary and a little gross to have leftover lip balm all over your finger. Despite that small issue, I like the product and I think it has helped my lips! 

The next product I picked up was Glossier's newest product Solution. Solution is essential a liquid exfoliator. This product is applied just as you would apply toner, with a cotton pad after cleansing. The sales associate said that when you first use the product to only use a small amount to see how your skin reacts. At first I think this product made my skin break out slightly, but I am now just using it once a week because it is very strong and fast acting. I haven't used it quite long enough to see results. But, I do think it leaves your skin feeling refreshed after using. 

We had a great experience at the showroom! When you walk into the door you have to go up an elevator to the actual store space. The space is very aesthetically pleasing, aka Instagram opportunities galore. I particularly loved the mirror that said "You look good". The sales associates were super helpful, and explained their products well (for any newbies like me!). 

Plus you get a super cute Glossier bag (pictured below) and a larger little makeup bag that every order comes with online. The stickers also add a fun extra touch, I love a good sheet of stickers. 

Overall, it was a great shopping experience! We went later at night, around 7:30, and they close at 8pm. Normally, there is a huge line so if you go later at night you might be able to skip out on waiting in a long line to get in!
