How We’re Putting Our Skin First

Aisle 9 is all about bringing inspiration + noteworthy products to the lives of our readers, and with your best interest in mind, our team is constantly discussing what brands will elevate our own lives as well. Recently, some of the office convos have circled back to gushing over a tried x true brand, Glossier  — only to find half of our team had yet to even try it. In a divided household, Anna [EIC], Courtney [photographer], and Rachel [intern] made it their mission to turn the rest of the office into Glossier enthusiasts as well. Given a week + enough hype, they swayed Ella Ruth [editorial coordinator] + Jamie [photographer] to make their first online purchases. But get this, since receiving her first Glossier products, Jamie has already placed her second order. Meanwhile, as they were busy convincing the rest of the team to try, we found it fitting to share what they have to say about their favourite picks with our readers who also haven’t tried.


Glossier “You” Eau De Parfum

AC: I’ve touched on this one before, but it is one of my everyday staples [seriously]. I’ve never been complimented on my fragrance until this entered the scene. It’s a long lasting scent with 3 base notes of ambrette, ambrox, and musk that stay true from a.m. to p.m.

Body Hero Daily Oil Wash

AC: First of all, the scent is incredible. My skin feels clean x hydrated after each use. Plus, it makes an ideal pair with the body cream.

Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

AC: This dreamy lotion is thick + creamy. It smells delicious x melts in quick, so you can get dressed right away. The dewy sheen stays with me all day, which is why I *love* it for summer. It gets bonus points for packaging, which allows for easy travel.

Milky Jelly Cleanser

CP: My nightly routine was rocked when I got my Milky Jelly Cleanser + Solution. I had used harsh face wash for as long as I can remember, so switching to the Milky Jelly was refreshing. It’s gentle x always leaves me feeling fresh.

Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector

CP: Next, I use the Solution with cotton rounds. This product wipes away any excess makeup or dirt left from a busy day. My skin feels loved + never stripped. I go to sleep knowing I will wake up fresh faced. 

Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream

RR: My skin is dry + by no means dormant from breakouts. However, I’ve found a safe haven in my Glossier skin regimen. For delicate areas, like my under eyes, I rely on Bubblewrap Cream to replenish my dry spots + correct hyperpigmentation. Its formula is not too heavy x works as a primer, so my makeup stays put.

Priming Moisturizer

RR: My second go-to is the Priming Moisturizer. Like I said, my skin is dry, but this product has been a game changer for me. It melts in, leaving my skin dewy x supple, but not greasy.

Balm Dotcom Skin Salve

RR: Lastly, the Balm Dotcom is just an OG favourite of mine. It’s a multipurpose salve that I apply literally everywhere: lips, nail beds, and even elbows.
