Product Review: Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich

      Every time Glossier launches a new skincare product I'm all over it - I had only tried a sample of the original Priming Moisturizer (when they apparently still gave out samples) and while I liked it, I didn't purchase it because I had so many other moisturizers similar to it that I had to finish up. But I purchased the Priming Moisturizer Rich this past winter because I ran out of my day wear winter moisturizer (Avene's Skin Recovery Cream) and I needed something to replace it. So it was a no brainer, and I happily purchased the Priming Moisturizer Rich. I know, you're saying, "but I spy the original Priming Moisturizer back there." Well, that's because Glossier by mistake sent me that first, but because their customer service is great, they immediately shipped out the right product and now I have both to compare!

Priming Moisturizer Rich, 1.7oz
Price: $35

Everyone needs a luxurious face cream in their lineup—for nighttime, for wintertime, for any time your face needs nourishing, comforting hydration. This dense, sumptuous cream is rich in ceramides and fatty acids, reinforcing the skin barrier and locking in moisture over time. Our Anti-Redness Complex and Oxygenating Agent are the priming ingredients, instantly making skin a smooth, dewy canvas for makeup (or not), just like our bestselling original Priming Moisturizer. Formulated with a balanced, non-greasy blend of shea and murumuru butters to melt perfectly into skin for a supremely lavish hydrating experience.

Aqua/Water/Eau, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Propanediol, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Tridecyl Neopentanoate, Squalane, Dimethicone, Cocoglycerides, Cetyl Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Aleurites Moluccanus Seed Oil, PEG-40 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Panthenol, Butylene Glycol, Polyisobutene, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ceteareth-20, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Hexylene Glycol, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Tropaeolum Majus Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Sodium Benzoate, Mel/Honey Extract/Extrait de Miel, Boswellia Serrata Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tetrapeptide-14, Linalool.


     Like with the Milky Jelly Cleanser, the Priming Moisturizer Rich was also crowd sourced. Glossier again asked customers to describe their perfect heavy duty moisturizer and this is what they came up with - something that's dense and hydrating but sinks in quickly and never feels heavy on the skin. It does live up to this claim! A little bit goes a long way, and it easily spreads across the face and it almost immediately sinks in. Much like its predecessor, like the original Priming Moisturizer it is buildable in hydration too. It smells lovely - like lavender. If you don't like lavender, it might not be the moisturizer for you. I participated in the original crowd sourcing, and I recall seeing a lot of people saying don't put it in a jar. As you can see though, it's in a jar. Glossier specifically stated they created an antibacterial jar that will keep the product as "fresh" as possible. I don't mind the jar so much (it's rather pretty!) but I can see why it is a con for some. Overall, great product and a really good daily winter moisturizer. I think you can probably use this in the summer too, but only sparingly and at night.


Concluding Remarks

      If you're a fan of most skincare items from Glossier, definitely give this a try. I think it's best for combination and dry skin however. For those who are oily skinned like me, it's only a really viable moisturizer in the winter. It's also a great price for $35! Available exclusively via their official ecommerce site here
