What You Need To Be Buying From the Friends of Glossier Sale

Here's exactly what you need to be stocking your cosmetic bag up with 20% off on Glossier products from Thursday 26th May

When Emily Weiss launched Glossier in 2014 off the back of her successful beauty blog Into The Gloss, nobody was prepared for the global phenomenon that was about to take shape. It developed a cult following, products sold out so often that to actually buy one was akin to finding the Holy Grail (almost) and the brand finally arrived on UK shores in 2017, to much fanfare.

Capitalising on a truly engaged fan base, affordable prices, millennial-friendly packaging and rave reviews, Glossier has truly transformed the beauty landscape, leading the way for the advent of many other digital brands.

Even if you haven't tried the products yet, chances are you know their names. From Boy Brow to Cloud Paint and every Milky Jelly Cleanser in-between, it seems everyone has their own Glossier obsession. Gradually, more products have launched, expanding the Glossier brand to include a wealth of skincare, make-up, and even Glossier You, the brand's fragrance (housed in a millennial pink bottle, of course).

The 'Friends Of Glossier' Summer Sale 2022

After an accidental leak of a secret Glossier discount code sent fans crazy for two hours last year, the make-up and cosmetic brand have gone a step further and made a week of deals for supporters.

Everything You Need To Know About Glossier's Universal Pro-Retinol Nightly Renewing Complex

Meet the Glossier Pro-Retinol Nightly Renewing Complex, £30. The 35ml bottle which launched last September is packed with nightly retinol, formulated with a mix of pure retinol (0.5%) and sunflower seed fatty acids. Why sunflower seed fatty acids? They help to counterbalance the less desirable effects of retinol that many experience during use. We're talking dryness, itchiness and sometimes peeling. There are some pretty impressive statistics associated with this new buy too. According to Glossier's own research, 100% of testers said their skin looks and feels renewed, smoother, softer, more radiant, and visibly transformed after just four weeks of using it.

Already ahead of the game and got one waiting for you at home? Use it at night only, as the label duly suggests. Smooth a pea-sized amount onto cleansed skin, allowing it to fully absorb before you use your moisturiser. Use twice a week or every other night at first if you're new to retinol as a whole and if you're worried about sensitivity start out by sandwiching it between two layers of moisturiser - ie. apply your moisturiser first, then the Glosser Pro-Retinol Nightly Renewing Complex and finally another layer of moisturiser.

Product Summary: Meet Glossier's new skincare launch, a nightly retinoid formulated with 0.5% pro-retinol in the form of Retinyl Sunflowerate. That's a mix of pure retinol and sunflower seed fatty acids to you and me. Product Specifications: The nourishing properties of the sunflower seed fatty acids work to counterbalance the less desirable effects often associated with using retinol products, we're talking dryness, itching and occasionally peeling. Pros/Cons: What's not to love about a new Glossier launch? At £30 this is a retinol product worth looking into - retinol buys are usually quite pricey and we rate £30 for a 35ml bottle of this one as reasonable.

Let's Talk About Glossier Boy Brow

Five years (and 4 million sales of Boy Brow) later, Glossier launched its iconic brow-boosting tinted pomade in a warm, coppery shade to cater to redheads. The product, which once garnered a 10,000-strong waitlist, is Glossier’s number one best-seller and is famed for its ability to instantly fluff up and groom brows.

Exploding into the mainstream back in 2015, Boy Brow was originally launched in Black, Brown and Blonde. Then in 2017, Clear was added to the line-up as a universal translucent wax to shape and fix brows. While this was previously the only Glossier option for redheads, Boy Brown in Auburn arrived at last in 2020.

Now, with a full collection of shades available to shop - the buzz around Boy Brow is sure to continue.

What Is GlossiWEAR?

GlossiWEAR is also available on the site (although will not be included in the 20% summer sale), which is essentially a collection of merchandise bearing the brand's moniker. While most merch is, arguably, a bit of a disaster, Glossier's flew off the shelves, proving that it still has major pulling power. From branded duffel bags, hair clips and sandals (still in stock!) almost everything sold out in record timing. Now though, the brand has announced that it will launch yet more items, including a baseball cap, long sleeved top and – wait for it – a hoodie in millennial pink (is there any other colour?)
