It’s 2018 and I have officially dived head first into the world of acids & how they can really help with our skin! Bring along one of the newest most talked about products & brands… Glossier
This year they launched Glossier Solution and they claim to revamp your skin in just four weeks… In a poll by Glossier‘s daily Solution Users 3 our of 4 people stated that
- After 24 hours – Skin felt cleaner & softer.
- After 1 Week – Skin looked smoother, brighter and clearer
- After 2 Weeks pores looked smaller and skin looked glowy
- After 3 weeks – pores were unclogged and there was reduced redness and more even skin.
So we had to try it – especially after living for so long with massive pores on my face!!
Solution works by removing the dead skin cells that blocks our pores & penetrates deep into each individual one. Using a variety of Acids within the Solution such as Glycolic / Lactic / Citric & Salicylic Acid* – all chemical exfoliants ex the citric which modified the skins pH levels! (Please note as we’ve previously stated we are new to acids and we recommend EVERYONE checks out the products containing acids carefully and makes sure they will suit their skin before applying anything directly to your skin!) [I rely on other beauty boss’ that are in the know more-so about these things like Caroline Hirons & Alessandra Steinherr – reading and watching absolutely everything of theirs!]
We gave it a go and we are happy with our results so far! After using the product for 4-6 weeks we had the initial tingling sensation on our first week, whilst using every other day – a short lived mild tingle sensation leaving us with immediately noticeable smoother skin!
Over weeks two to four we noticed an array of changes such as smoother skin for longer, my smaller pores vanishing and the largest ones decreasing in size… it also has a positive effect on my old chicken pox scars and it’s helping them reduce down a little too!
Beat in mind whilst using this product – don’t use it on your microbladed or semi-permanent brows! It will fade the pigment a lot quicker meaning you’ll be due a top up much quicker than anticipated … I wouldn’t want to put that well spent money down the drain 😅
Another thing to consider is the time of day when applying the product! If you are heading out I’d recommend not using it in the morning! Solution makes your skin even more sensitive to the sun and glossier recommend that you wear factor 50 if heading out after application! – due to this as I have very fair skin I use it at night as part of my routine, after an initial cleanse whilst showering *no soap*, I apply Solution, then apply my fave serum finishing with a layer of a gentle colloidal oatmeal moisturiser from Cuderm or of I’m heading out for the evening I apply a blend of Neutrogena’s #HydroBoost Serum blended with the HydroBoost Water Gel as it contains Hyuralonic Acid which effortlessly hydrated my skin and creates a perfect base for my makeup!
The packaging really targets the teen market and is packaged to be totally Glossier from outer postal box to final product! We love the push down dispenser at the top too!
Overall thoughts… Worth the hype of it works for you!!
