I always love the Glossier packaging. Like the handcream, the body of the packaging is completely recyclable. You just take off the top, rinse and recycle.

The new Priming Moisturize Balance is available at Glossier* here now for £23.

My Review

I have really been enjoying this moisturiser. It feels ultra light yet really comfortable and hydrating on the skin. Here’s what it looks like freshly applied.

I think that it works really well to diffuse the look of pores, and while it has a soft mattifying effect, it still leaves the skin looking radiant and just the right amount of dewy.

It sits fantastically under the tinted SPF50 I have been using quite a lot recently, the Sarah Chapman Skin Insurance SPF50.  I also tested it under the Sisley Phyto Hydra Teint Tinted Moisturiser and the Kiehl’s Aqua Gel Ultra Light Daily UV Defense when I don’t want coverage, and it was great under those too. It keeps the shine at bay really nicely and also helps the coverage of both the tinted products last really well on the skin.

I’m really pleased with the inclusion of Niacinamide and also the Apple Extract which together refine texture and lock in moisture at the same time.
