The Glossier Body Hero Duo. Aka my go-to body care duo. Aka what resides in my shower right now and has been there for the past 2 months of so.The two products, the Oil-Wash and Perfecting Lotion, and they compliment each other beautifully.
The Oil Wash is a mix of prominent coconut, meadow foam, olive, soybean, sesame, grapeseed, and sunflower seed oils. Each with their own purpose in the product.
The Perfecting Lotion has a desert plant blend (yeah I know sounds weird), evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract Complex, Tamarind Fruit, Light-Reflecting Particles and the same orange blossom neroli scent as the Oil Wash, so they pair perfectly.
In the Oil Wash, Coconut, meadow foam, olive, and soybean oils softens the skin. Sesame oil soothes and purifies the skin by attracting oil-soluble dirt and grime (perfect for post-sweat showers). Grapeseed oil is very lightweight and is filled with antioxidants including vitamin C.Sunflower Seed oil is rich in Linoleic acid and vitamin E to protect the skin’s barrier and decreases moisture loss in your skin. And the scent of the product, an orange blossom neroli blend. Beautiful, light, clean.
The wash is also gynecologist tested and approved, so it is safe to use all over your body, is vegan, soap free, paraben free, cruelty free, and hypoallergenic.
*A quick little note: I have mentioned before on the blog that I am not a huge fan of coconut oil on the skin. However I do enjoy this product with coconut oil in the shower. Because the hot water of the shower will keep the coconut oil melted and not solidify in your pores causing congestion. This is also my personal experience with straight, pure coconut oil and my skin.
The Perfecting Lotion has a desert plant blend that is made up of cactus flower extract, prickly pear extract, and yucca extract to give your skin a antioxidant medley and prolonged moisture. Evodia Rutaecarpa fruit extract complex enhances your skin’s brightness over time with every use. Tamarind Fruit exfoliates your skin from the naturally derived magnesium, potassium and AHAs in the fruit. Also in the lotion, light reflecting particles so your skin looks its best at all time (I can vouch for that). Lastly the same orange blossom neroli scent.
The lotion is fast absorbing, enhancing (thanks to those dandy particles), hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, paraben free, and cruelty free.
What I love so much about this duo is how my skin feels after using it. Soft, moisturized, enhanced. Its almost like you get out of the shower, put on lotion and you’re getting a warm hug from these two. (weird but try it and you will get it.) The scent, comforting, more mature than vanilla or cucumber, but not overpowering.
Lastly, is it worth it? I think yes. If you don’t have the money to drop on these products, I understand, but when you do, it is worth trying these two out because it is almost like every shower or bath is a mini pamper day of its own. The oil wash beautifully lathers, but doesn’t leave an oil layer on my skin like I’ve experienced with other oils. This is my first oil wash product but I will most likely never go back.
The lotion truly gives your skin a light glow. Healthy, not overpowering and the scent layering from these two products is so awesome. I usually have conflicting scents between body wash and lotion but these two make it seamless and just give you that overwhelming feeling of “this is right”.
I will say that if you HAVE to choose 1 of the 2, try the Perfecting Cream! It really just makes your skin glow!
Plus, you get the large pink pouch with every order of this duo.
