Glossier recently came out with their “Solution” and everybody is trying it. This is Glossier’s first powerful skin care product. They are known for their skin tint, boy brow, and light cleanser/priming moisturizer, but now they are stepping up their acne fighting game.
Glossier’s Solution is made of a surprisingly gentle blend of alpha-hydroxy acid in the form of lactic and glycolic acids, which exfoliate the skin’s surface; beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) salicylic acid, which penetrates deep into the skin to unclog pores and stave off acne; and the lesser-known polyhydroxy acid (PHA) gluconolactone, which balances out the more abrasive ingredients to be sensitive skin friendly. Not to mention, like all Glossier products, it is wrapped up in the most adorable baby pink bottle.
You are definitely getting your money’s worth when it comes to the packaging as they specifically designed it to be spill-proof and so that when you press down on the pump with a cotton pad, just the right amount comes out. Apparently, it not only clears your skin, but also makes it look more radiant. Sounds good to us! Critics are saying it does all that it promises and all for only $24. Solution was first teased in a post on Into The Gloss in January, when Team editor Manouska Jeantus wrote a piece entitled, “How To Beat Acne? Stop Hiding It,” and raved about the new product after testing it for two weeks. “These days, I catch myself touching my face and whispering, ‘Wow, whose skin is this?’” she writes. “The texture is smooth and the daily breakouts are minimal to none.” Glossier reports that three out of four users in a clinical trial also experienced similar results. Considering the brand’s motto is “Skin first, makeup second,” we don’t doubt it’s absolutely awesome! Try it out and let us know if it works wonders for you too!
