We all know how obsessed I am with Glossier products and the brand as a whole. Lately, they’ve been launching products like crazy. (I’m looking at “You”, Glossier’s new fragrance). My newest favorite is Glossier Body Hero Duo – a cleansing oil & lotion for the body. Glossier products make up a good portion of my “above the neck” top shelf, so I was thrilled when I learned that they would be releasing body care products. Body Hero can be purchased as a duo or separately, but I would highly recommend trying the two together.
The packaging is gorgeous, as usual. The duo arrives beautifully packaged in a massive (I mean seriously huge!), signature pink pouch. Also included are the Glossier stickers and the Body Hero sticker, along with a pump for the Body Hero cleanser. Leave it to Glossier to kill it – down to the tiny details, like the pump packaging, which reads “assembly required”. In addition to the standard Glossier pink, they’ve added a pop of red to the logo.
The Body Hero campaign is everything! Glossier is amazing about diversity, but this campaign will go down in history as one of my favorites of all time – so beautifully executed. The Glossier girls are all stunning – and completely nude, with their arms and the Glossier Body Hero stickers cleverly placed to cover the parts of the body that can’t be shown on social media. Still, you can appreciate their beauty. Every skin tone, body type and age are represented here. I can appreciate the fact that Glossier is celebrating the real bodies of real women. Hopefully, we’ll start to see a lot more of this type of diversity within the beauty industry. Snaps to the Glossier team for this one! And props to these women for being so brave. You have to give it up to these women – it’s not easy to be so exposed and vulnerable on such a large platform, but these ladies show no sense of fear, just pride.
Now, onto the good stuff – the product. We’ll start with the Body Hero Daily Oil Wash. It promises to hydrate, cleanse and enhance the skin. This is an oil-based cleanser, similar to the ones you would use on your face. I have to admit, when I discovered that this cleanser was oil-based, I felt the same way that I felt when I first started using oil to clean my face – curious and a bit hesitant. But after one use, I was hooked! The Daily Oil Wash is made with a blend of seven oils to keep your skin moisturized even after you’re out of the shower. The scent? Glossier describes it as an “Orange Blossom Neroli Blend”, but I just call it “heavenly”.
The cleanser comes with a convenient pump, which makes for easy use in the shower. I need about 3-4 pumps for my entire body and will keep you posted regarding how long the 8.4 fluid ounce bottle lasts. Using an oil as a body cleanser does take some getting used to, especially if you’re used to a full lather in the shower. The Daily Oil Wash doesn’t offer much of a lather (more like a soft, foamy, half-lather), but it makes up for it with the hydration it delivers. As someone who suffers with dry skin, this product is a godsend. After a few weeks of use, I find myself wondering what I ever did without Body Hero. It leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and hydrated – just what I’m looking for.
Next up, the Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream. This product comes in a squeeze tube (and mine is already half empty) and feels so luxurious on the skin. It absorbs instantly and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth like a baby’s bottom. I’m a huge fan of body butters and rich body creams, especially during the colder months and the Daily Perfecting Cream is right up my alley. You get that rich, creamy hydration without a sticky, heavy lotion feeling. The lotion has the same soft Orange Blossom Neroli scent as the Daily Oil Wash and keeps my skin hydrated all day long. I’ve yet to feel like I needed to reapply halfway through the day.
My favorite thing about the Daily Perfecting Cream (aside from the heavenly scent and serious moisturizing) is the glow that it gives your skin, courtesy of the light-reflecting particles. There is no glitter or sparkle, just a hint of gleam that leaves your skin looking healthy and glowing. It reminds me of M.A.C. Cosmetics Strobe Cream for your body.
If it isn’t obvious by now, I’m a huge fan of Glossier as a brand and obsess over their products, but there are a handful of Glossier goodies that I just can’t live without. We’re adding the Body Hero duo to that list! These are two products that I will definitely continue to repurchase. If you’re looking to upgrade your shower experience, I would highly recommend giving Glossier Body Hero a go.
PS – If you haven’t heard, Glossier now ships to Canada & the U.K. Now my Canadian and British babes can get their hands on Body Hero and the rest of the Glossier range.
