I absolutely love the Glossier You Eau de Parfum, and after reading reviews of the Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash, I decided to give it a try when I placed my recent order of the brand new Glossier Ultralip Lipsticks.
Glossier You is now my favourite, signature scent, and I read reviews of the Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash, with people saying it was the same fragrance, and it really helped to intensify the Glossier You fragrance, which instantly had me sold.
The Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash is said to be an oil cleanser inspired by the ones for your face, made for your body, and Glossier call it ‘body wash going luxe’.
The Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash is £15 and contains 8.4 fl oz / 250 ml within a pastel pink plastic bottle, which comes with a pump packaged separately. I’m not entirely sure why sell it with the pump separately, but it takes seconds to swap the plastic screw on lid for the pump.
The Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash features a seven oil blend which is said to attract grime and swear like a magnet, lifting it from your skin. It claims to turn frothy on contact with water, and washes away without drying out the skin.
This body wash dispenses via the pump, and is a yellow toned oil which begins to emulsify on contact with damp skin, but it doesn’t really ‘froth’ like the claims.
It’s a little disappointing, but I don’t find that the body wash lathers at all, and it doesn’t feel as if cleanses the skin properly.
Even if I apply a generous amount of the oil to the skin, it just doesn’t go very far, and usually oil based body washes emulsify into a luxurious, nourishing milk, and that just doesn’t happen with the Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash.
It’s one of those products which I’ll finish because I’ve spent £15 on it, but I don’t enjoy using it, and if anything, I actually find it to be quite drying on the skin unlike the claims.
I think I’ll stick to Glossier makeup and fragrance going forward, and I definitely wouldn’t repurchase as there are many drugstore body washes which are a fraction of the price, and have a better, more effective formula.
