People in the beauty industry are constantly trying new products. So much so that it is a rare experience for all of us to lure the last drops out of a moisturizer, or struggle with a little bit of eyeliner; if we finish a product, we love it. Hence this occasional recurring feature: Things We Finish, in which Glossier HQ talks about the products we push, scrape or shake through the beauty junkies until there's nothing left. Over the past few months, we've spent a lot of time on the house & # 39; giving some favorite products to our full, undivided attention. Here is the beautiful emptying we ended up with:

& # 39; Just because no one ever talked about & # 39; bacne & # 39; does not mean it is not real. I get pimples and blackheads on my back and shoulders, and plain body soap doesn't help. So I started using the body-clear body wash of Neutrogena. It takes a couple of weeks to get started, but after testing it for more than a month, I have really unnoticed, like pores! I put it on and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it. The result is smoother, stainless skin. I'm already on my second bottle! "

& # 39; The aroma of the rose, rosemary, and peppermint essential oils is so refreshing, reminding me of my mother and sister who used it forever. (My sister hooked me.) It feels soothing and stiffens without drying out my skin, which I haven't found in many other products. It also gives an instant glow to my face, so I use it as the first AND last step in my daily routine! It will be on my shelf forever – I really can't get enough. "

& # 39; Listen, I'm not normally a natural deo person. I'm an Old Spice in Fiji. I gave so many deodorants so many chances, and every time I smelled of soft waste. Necessaries were the last time I was The mixture of soft acids prevents bacteria from growing in my soft forearms, with a super clean eucalyptus scent and a satisfying soft cream texture that keeps me fresh manufactured. You may still sweat a bit, but I promise you won't stink. Not surprisingly, it is almost out of stock almost immediately; I waited for a month for a month, scraping every last bit out of the box. I even tried P50 and Solution in my pockets (which worked, but be careful when shaving your armpits, because acids can be irritating). Long story short; I now have three backups. "

& # 39; This is & # 39; a product I use every day. The sun in Arizona has decided that summer begins early, and lately it has been more than 100 degrees here. When I quarantine my two favorite activities, I lay out my dog, and I use it even more than usual. It ticks every box on my dream sunscreen list: & # 39; A wonderful scent, no white cast & a bonus glow. I always have one in my wallet, one in my swimming pool, one in my car, and one for a friend. Just in case. "

& # 39; About three months ago, I was looking for a new vitamin C serum. I follow Marianna Hewitt, one of the founders of Summer Fridays, on Instagram and noticed that they made a version. I took the leap and bought it. After blowing through a bottle, I do not joke when I say that I think I have found my holy grail of vitamin C serum. I like the fresh orange color, that it smells like citrus, and that it immediately brightens and hydrates my face. The slightly sticky finish it leaves behind is ideal for applying other products. I told everyone what I know about it, and just received my email back in the mail last week. "

& # 39; I have to share a very special product that, and I can't stress it enough, has changed my life. Not sharing it would be criminal! Removing Buly's Porcelain Bottle 1803 & # 39; s Damask Rose Caves Antique dry oil on my nose was a full sensory experience. The fragrant potato is equally nice and floral, with balanced elements of rose, ginger and vetiver. When applied, it feels nourishing and light, and once the oil absorbs quickly, it makes your skin feel like satin and smells like that scene in Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette where she swings everywhere in a garden with flowers. If it didn't sell you, then the real cherry is on top whole The experience is the fact that an internal calligrapher writes your name beautifully and carefully on every thing you buy. Cry."

& # 39; I didn't know how long I was away when I packed my dopp kit to leave the city in March, and I threw in a Josh Rosebrook Balance shampoo in a travel size . I have a sensitive scalp that is oily and prone to dandruff. It sounded good to me to balance something. I really like the smell – and this is divine! Herbs, but not overwhelming. After my hair became dry, I noticed that the texture was just as I liked it: soft and smooth, but not silky, and & # 39; a little volume to the scalp. Perfect. I went through the travel size soon, and I'm definitely ordering the full version now. "

& # 39; I get hormonal breakouts around me every month, right before my period. At the time, I used The Ordinary & # 39; s Niacinimide 10% + Zinc 1% Serum to reduce the outbreaks, but when the quarantine started, I started using it overnight to address and reduce stress-related regions. I really like that it has a somewhat sticky texture, because I can really feel how it goes in my skin – if the stickiness disappears, I know it's absorbed. And it has been proven to be effective, while still being gentle and not drying me out. I just bought it back in hopes of keeping my skin happy under my mask in the summer months. "

& # 39; Let's just admit it all: the French know what they are doing when it comes to skincare. I've tried just about every balm under the sun, and this one makes me top three. The texture is so buttery and luxurious, making it ideal for these days of home-in-your-dry NYC apartment. It also smells amazing without being overwhelming, & # 39; a bit like honey and & # 39; a bit like lemon. This is the first time I've gone through the whole jar – it took months. I need to buy another one immediately. & # 39;

& # 39; I find that I often forget to mask in ordinary life. No problem these days! And I used the opportunity to finally finish my bath with Kiehl's Rare Earth mask. It's a great value, and it's huge – a little goes a long way. My skin is fairly dry and prone to dullness and flaking, and this mask does a good job of cleaning everything without drying me out. My skin just feels smoother. If I feel really ambitious, I will keep a complete pore clean: I start with a glycolic serum, let it marinate for a few hours, and then I adjust the mask. When I wash it, I follow with an oil massage, and my pores do not stand a chance. & # 39;

& # 39; I've always been confused by the difference between retinol and retin-A, but I do know that retin-A should be prescribed by a dermatologist, and you will produce faster results. Retinalon the other hand, it's kind of a centerpiece between the two, and it's available over the counter. My friend recommended one of Medik8, which has 1 to 10. different strengths. I have a super sensitive skin and was a little nervous about breaking my usual routine, so it was important for me to start with the mildest one. And this product definitely sweetened my vitamin A experience. It smells like cookies and has a lovely creamy texture – after five weeks and just a little peeling, my skin feels extra shiny and smooth. I will consider making sure I get the next power. & # 39;

& # 39; My mom actually bought it for me –Also likes body oils and she is & # 39; A loyal philosophy user. I was looking for a lighter body oil with a spray pump (I always end up too much with the other oils I use, and they get everywhere), and when I saw this one on her dresser, I'm intrigued. A light spray provides just enough moisture without feeling greasy, and as someone who has tried a LOT of body oil, I can tell you that this balance is hard to hit. It smells like flowers in the rain or the way I think clouds smell – and maybe I'm a soup, but I like how the scent reminds me of my mother. I can add another oil in the summer for extra shine (look at this thicker Jordan Samuel one), but I definitely plan to keep Philosophy in my routine. "
