Review of Glossier's Moisturizing Moon Mask
I feel like there has been a lot of buzz about Glossier and I finally gave in and tried them out, recently buying their Moisturizing Moon Mask. Glossier was founded by Emily Weiss, and I believe it started as a beauty blog/website (Into the Gloss) before more recently launching their own skincare and makeup line. Here is a great interview with Racked, if you want to know more.

I've been using this for a month or two, and was waiting to review until I used it a few times and could see if it caused my skin to break-out. It did not, and is a great mask moisturizer. The formula is thick and you can really feel it settle onto your skin. The instructions tell you to apply a thin mask and then wait 20 minutes before washing it off. I also appreciate it has a light smell, as generally I don't like fragrances in my skin care products.
Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask

My only complaint is that I wish this came in a pump bottle, so you don't have to reach your hand into the jar and increase the potential for contamination from your fingers getting into the product.

I would buy this product again but I have to say, part of the reason I feel that way is because Glossier killed it with the packaging. Allow me to explain:
First, there is this pinkish bubble wrap zip bag, which is totally cute and I started using it to store jewelry (I guess I'm not the only one who likes this baggie).
Inside the bag was the product, a set of Glossier stickers (so cute!) and a poster.
Here is the poster:

Up close.

The packaging doesn't really have anything to do with the quality of the mask, but I appreciated their attention to detail in making the presentation so joyful. 

Have you tried anything from Glossier and what did you think?


  1. Looking at your archives! I also recently tried Glossier, and I like it! I got the lip gloss thingie, i forget what they call it. Haha, that is funny you liked the packaging. I was kind of like, what is all this??? a poster? what in the world am i supposed to do with that? I did give the stickers to Leena. Amon took the bag and in less than 10 seconds ripped off the closing thing, so I threw that away. At least the product was good though!

    1. Haha, that's awesome that you had such an opposite reaction to the packaging. I do admit the poster might have been a bit much
