Glossier Just Got Into a Whole New Category
By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
Our skin care and makeup routines have already been edited-down and simplified thanks to Glossier’s current lineup, but the understated brand’s latest launch is coming for our stash of body products next. Inspired by the oil-based cleansers and luxurious creams we slather onto our faces day in and day out, the Body Hero Duo ($35) is here to change the way we care for the other 90 percent of our skin.
Unlike usual body washes that are largely made up of water and soap and tend to strip our skin of the natural lipids and moisturizers that keep it dewy, the Daily Oil Wash ($22) doesn’t contain a single drop of water. Instead, it enlists an “oil-to-froth formula” built on a seven-oil blend (coconut, meadowfoam, olive, soybean, sesame, grapeseed, sunflower seed and an orange blossom neroli oil cocktail) designed to trap dirt, grime and sweat like a magnet, cleanse it away, then treat it with the foam—much like a facial cleanser you probably have sitting on your sink.

Step two of the dynamic duo, the Daily Perfecting Cream ($27) is a hard-hitting moisturizer that delivers an instant uptick in the elasticity, smoothness and radiance of our skin with help from a unique “desert plant blend” (made up of cactus flower, prickly pear and yucca extracts), tamarind (brimming with magnesium, potassium and exfoliating alphahydroxy acids) and light-reflecting particles to blur any imperfections. Another plus, which anyone who hates the feeling of lotion will appreciate, is that it absorbs on contact, so you can officially say goodbye to endless rubbing.
Both millennial-pink products leave behind a barely-there scent—a light blend of orange blossom and neroli is at the heart of both formulas—that won’t disrupt sensitive skin or noses (the brand describes it as “baby fresh” to give you an idea). You can purchase each separately, or save $5 with the set—but do it quickly, as both are sure to go quickly (why wouldn’t the internet flock to products that promise “dewy” skin all over your body?). The Body Hero Duo is now available for purchase on Glossier’s website.
