An everyday balm for just about everything
For many of us, when we head into a new season, we’re headed for a skin change. For me, as it starts to get colder, dry becomes the new norm. Luckily Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom ($12) is helping me hold onto summer (and summer skin) for a little while longer.
Glossier sells a carefully curated number of skincare products with the philosophy that beauty should be easy, fun and personal. This balm is just that and it’s one of those products I can already tell is going to be invaluable to me.
The Coconut Balm is a variation of their basic balm with a subtle, glorious hint of coconut that will have you reaching for it again and again. It’s meant to be a universal skin salve that can be used pretty much everywhere, and believe me I use it a lot!
It’s a fairly small tube, at only 0.44oz. But the concentrated creamy formula, with added beeswax and castor seed oil, is so effective that you don’t need much. I do wish they had bigger tubes of it though. Because between using it on elbows, heels, cuticles and lips, my poor little tube has taken a pretty big hit right away.
I really love the formula, it’s a creamy balm that sinks right in with very little greasiness. It almost goes on dry, it’s a fab consistency. Best of all, it just WORKS. Cuticles are instantly hydrated, cracked heels are gone and lips are softer.
I LOVE this stuff, and at just $12 a tube I will definitely be getting more. It is one of those precious little beauty buys that is going to become ingrained in my routine, I can already tell. It easily rivals some of my favorite lip balms, and I thought it worked a lot better than a lot of my foot creams.
I’m excited to try some of their other products including the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack, a mask that they say is like a “juice cleanse” for your face and a complexion reset. Sign me up.
I may even have to snag a few of these balms for Christmas, because it is a perfect stocking stuffer. As Glossier says, you’ll want one for “your bag, other bag and medicine cabinet,” and I do.
we heartsters, where would you use your Glossier Coconut Balm?
