Brace yourselves, there's a rave coming on. Glossier's newest product, the Priming Moisturizer Rich,* launches today! I've gone on and on about how much I love the original Priming Moisturizer, so when I heard they were making a richer version I was psyched. I've been testing it for about a week now, and I honestly think it's my favorite Glossier product yet.
The Priming Moisturizer Rich comes in a weighty jar that feels super luxe - I know some people don't like jar packaging, but I don't mind it. There aren't any actives that will be rendered useless in this packaging, and as long as you wash your hands before applying you won't be spreading bacteria. It's naturally a little thicker than the original - I'd say it's a similar consistency to the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream. It's not so thick that it's almost a balm, but it is thicker than your typical lotion.
The cream is chock full of nourishing ingredients, like ceramides, fatty acids, and Red Algae Complex, which acts as a reservoir to store water and deliver hydration over time. It also contains the same priming ingredients as the original moisturizer, their Anti-Redness Complex and Oxygenating Agent, which plump and calm the skin, creating a perfect base for makeup. The cream also contains Murumuru and shea butters for a luxurious, nourishing feeling.
I love that I can use this night or day - it perfectly seals in all my serums and other skincare at night, and it beautifully preps my skin for makeup in the morning. Despite the rich texture, it sinks in and leaves the skin feeling like literal velvet - it doesn't feel heavy at all. It leaves the skin with the most beautiful dewy glow, much like the original, without being greasy. The scent is beautiful as well - it has that lavender-y smell similar to the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, so that makes it nice to use at night as well.
You can shop this new release through my rep page at glossier.com/reps/kelsey to get 20% off your first order and free shipping on orders $30+. The Priming Moisturizer Rich should be easy to find in my Top Picks section on my page as well. It is $35 for 1.7 fl oz (50 mL), and it feels so much more expensive than that - I'll be hopping online to order myself a backup or two for sure.
