It's time for a change in skincare thinking. Don't categorize your skin as dry, oily, normal, or combination. Glossier certainly isn't doing so any longer. Glossier has launched The Supers, a collection of daily use face serums that are essentially like supplements... but for your skin. You use The Supers, which have a water-like texture so that they are instantly absorbed by skin and begin doing their job immediately, after you cleanse and before you apply your daily moisturizer. The Supers are effectively the middle men in your skincare routine. But what, exactly, do Glossier's The Supers face serums do ?
Oh, they get very specific jobs done. The Supers are super-concentrated and loaded with nutrients that combat issues your skin may be dealing with on different, given days. Glossier and The Supers eschew the long-held, religiously-adhered-to beauty industry notion of a skin type — these babies ditch those outdated "dry, oil, or combo skin" labels. The Supers understand that your skin and its daily needs change and are way more complex than that.
The Supers are the latest addition to an already stellar roster of offerings. As Glossier-o-holics know, Glossier's skin and makeup products are minimalist, but they get the job done. The Supers cost $28 a piece, while the Super Pack, containing all three, costs $65.
As with all Glossier products, including the signature pink pouches in which products are shipped, The Supers are available exclusively via Glossier.com.
The Supers are cognizant of the fact that your skin's needs can change daily depending on what activities you've been engaging in. When skin is dull and drab due to late night extra curricular activities, from studying to sexting, you need a brightening dose of Super Glow, which has lots of Vitamin C.
When your skin is stressed by the elements or writing papers or too many work deadlines, you need Super Pure with Niachinamide to combat breakouts and calm that redness.
If your skin is desperate for hydration, dab a soothing dose of Super Bounce with Hyluronic Acid. It plumps the skin and brings back elasticity to ease tightness after, say, a flight or a day outside or when officemates have the AC or the heat blasting and you're skin is all Sahara-like.
The Supers are supreme. If you add any or all to your daily routine, it will look a bit like this formula: Wash -> Super -> Moisturize.
BTW, I love that medicine dropper packaging.
