Reviewed: Glossier’s New Priming Moisturizer Balance

glossier priming moisturizer balance review 287520 1590789996379

So, here’s the tea. I really struggle with moisturizers. It’s as if my skin was ordained at birth to break out at the touch of literally any product designed to keep my skin hydrated. And, despite plenty of high-flung promises, plenty of formulas labeled as oil-free or safe for acne-prone skin have left my skin bumpy, greasy, or simply dehydrated. It’s so hard to find a product that can effortlessly toe the line between hydrating enough and zit-inducing city. In my time as a beauty editor, there have only been a handful of primers and moisturizers I can tolerate, and while I was hopeful after hearing the news and product perks of Glossier’s new launch, I was understandably, cautious. (What can I say, I’m damaged goods with trust issues!)

However, I’m happy to report that this product really fit the bill. Rarely does a beauty product do everything it says it will, but this product is quite amazing. It has a lovely, feather-light texture that’s clear in color and easy to spread and work into the skin—it has a slight glimmer-effect when you first apply it, but within seconds, it absorbs and dries down to a completely matte and invisible finish. My skin felt soft, smooth, and applying this product completely erased the need for my normal primer. I used it right after cleansing and patting on my favorite hyaluronic acid serum, and I found my foundation spread and blended into my skin really effortlessly. Even when I add powder, I find that my skin gets really shiny as the day wears on (especially during L.A. summers!) but my complexion remained remarkably matte and glare-free. I usually feel compelled to Facetune away some shine or makeup creases, but after snapping a few selfies, I found my skin had an almost pore-less, filter-like effect to it. There’s no smell which I appreciate, and a little goes a long way wich makes the affordable $25 pricepoint all the more appealing. 

My one and only qualm with this product is just how well it delivers. It almost left me too matte, and I actually found myself wishing I my skin looked and felt a little dewier. (I definitely think things would get much too desert-like if I combined this product with my favorite matte foundation.) That said, I have more combination skin versus strictly oily skin, so I think applying this as a primer on top of my normal moisturizer, or using this where I get greasy and another formula where I’m drier, would completely solve that problem. All in all, I’m sold, and I would definitely recommend this formula for anyone who is oily and in need of summertime moisturizer to help curb shine and grease.
