Many beauty junkies won’t think twice about splurging on facial skincare like potent creams, anti-aging serums and luxurious masks, but we often neglect our skin below the neck. Inspired by oil cleansers and nourishing creams for the face, Glossier created the new Body Hero Duo ($35 for the two) to clean, hydrate and nourish the other 90% of you.
The new body care products include the Daily Oil Wash and Daily Perfecting Cream ($18 and $22 respectively, if purchased separately).
The body wash is packed with natural oils to hydrate and soften skin while strengthening the skin’s natural moisture barrier. It also contains purifying sesame oil and grapeseed oil, which is packed with antioxidants and vitamins. The body cream is an amped up daily moisturizer to hydrate all day and give a subtle, light-reflecting glow. It also contains antioxidants and natural extracts to brighten and gently exfoliate skin.
I had a chance to try them out in person yesterday (while having breakfast with Emily Weiss, nbd) and I’m really excited to get them in my shower to try out regularly. My first impressions are good ones though—I love how the body lotion gives a glow to your skin but has absolutely no detectable shimmer. They both have an incredible, soft scent with notes of orange blossom and neroli (Emily said the scent was inspired by “chic French baby care products“) and although they seem quite simplistic, I like knowing they are packed with skin-boosting ingredients and antioxidants too (like most Glossier products are).
