When I was in middle school and first beginning to live the horror of acne, I dreamed of the day I'd be in my twenties and never have to deal with another zit again. Boy, was I wrong. Unfortunately, acne does not magically go away once you leave your teens, but after trying product after product and seeing nothing change, I threw out everything and ordered the Glossier Phase 1 Set.
I had heard amazing things about thier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and since so many girls loved it, I thought, why not? The system is actually quite paired down from the 5-7 products I used to use twice daily. It's simply the Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, and thier Balm Dotcom, which is a universal balm that I mostly use on my lips, but occasionally other places too. (plus it comes in fun flavors, I have Coconut and Birthday Cake!) And if you need extra acne-fighting or extra moisture, they have serums like Super Pure and Super Bounce to tailor the routine to your skin!
I also decided to ditch foundation and only use their Skin Tint. It's incredibly light and moisturizing, and offers just a slight hint of coverage.
Oh. Man. I've been using only this for about two months and I've never had better skin in my life! (Bold claim, but true!) I did get a few breakouts during that time of the month, but other than that I'm practically zit-free! To the point where I'm completely comfortable not wearing any face-makeup in public (that has not happened since I was eleven).
If you're tired of juggling a million skincare products and not seeing any improvement, check out Phase 1 and I promise you will not be sorry! There's a reason it has a 4.9/5 rating!! Even better, Glossier gives 20% off your first order with them!
