When it comes to beauty products, I’m always testing and trying new things. My skin can get super dry during the winter, my face suffers the random breakout any time of year, my lips are perpetually dry as well, and my hair fails to cooperate when i need it to. Here is my review of a few of my latest beauty favorites – Glossier Body Hero Duo, Ouai Rose Hair Oil, and Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish.
Beauty Review: Glossier Body Hero Duo, Ouai Rose Hair Oil, Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish
Glossier Body Hero Duo: Ever since I was young, my arms and legs get awfully dry, and it’s been a challenge to find a cleanser and lotion that keeps my skin hydrated through the day. I’d heard a lot about Glossier’s new Body Hero Duo and decided to pack it in my hospital overnight bag when I was pregnant with Olive. It was the cleanser and body lotion I used for my first shower post birth, when a new mama is feeling not cute and desperate for that first shower.
You guys, the Glossier Body Hero Duo is so, so good. It lives up to all the hype (plus it’s paraben free), and here’s why:
- Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash – Oil cleansers have surged in popularity lately for their ability to remove excess oil (sebum), reducing blemishes and hydrating the skin. This body cleanser is the first one to leave my skin feeling soft and hydrated after a bath or shower – most leave my skin feeling dry and tight. Coconut, Meadowfoam, Soybean, and Olive oils moisturize the skin, sesame oil draws out the excess body oil, grapeseed oil is filled with lots of good antioxidants like vitamin c that helps brighten the skin, and sunflower oil reduces moisture loss with vitamin E and linoleic acid.
- Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream – I can feel my skin drink up this body cream post shower, and my skin stays soft and hydrated all day. The desert plant extracts are filled with antioxidants and locks in moisture, tamarind is filled with acids, potassium, and magnesium that exfoliates, and the orange blossom neroli scent is one of my all time favorites (the key note in my Tom Ford fragrance)
Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil: I love products that do more than one thing. This oil is just that. Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil smooths my flyaways and gives my hair the glossy look I love, hydrates my skin on the driest of days, and leaves me smelling like a dreamy mix of Rose, Bergamot, Lychee, and White Musk. Another paraben free gem that I can’t live without.
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish: Once again, another 2-in-1 product that I’m impressed by. The Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish (I picked this one up from one of my favorite online shops, Dermstore) exfoliates, hydrates, and leaves skin smelling all kinds of wonderful. The virgin coconut oil contains proteins that promote cellular health and keeps skin healthy. Moroccan Rose soothes, cools, keeps pores clean, and fights anti aging with its high levels of antioxidants. And it smells like a dream. I use the Herbivore Body Polish during my bath nights as an extra special treat and I’m due for another jar soon!
Where to pick these new favorites up? Dermstore has always been one of my favorite go to spots AND they’re having a 20% off sale until 2/21 (tomorrow!). Glossier and Nordstrom are also spots you can find these super hydrating, lovely scented beauties.
