The Glossier Cleanser: What’s Your Dream Face Wash?


Happy New Year, friends! 2015’s just begun, New York City is cold as balls, and we’re all excited/relieved (or should be) that apparently there are no universally bad or good decisions, just ones that are right for you.

With this in mind, I’d love some feedback. About face wash. That’s right, cleansers: perhaps the most intimate of beauty products—after all, nothing gets closer to your skin. What would your dream cleanser look like? Smell like? Feel like? Do for you? Not do for you? Who would play this cleanser in a movie?

One of our new goals, since it’s that time of the year, is for Glossier to create the best darn cleanser the world has ever seen—addressing the clean skincare hopes and dreams of the people that inspired Glossier from the get-go: that's you, our ITG community.

Here are some of our random musings, at present:

  • deep-cleaning, but non-stripping
  • removes makeup, too
  • not tested on animals
  • paraben-free
  • not expensive
  • easy to travel with
  • Elle Fanning (would play it in a movie)

So, what do you desire? Don’t hold back. Anecdotes/paragraphs/love stories encouraged. We can't promise that every wish will be granted, but we will do our best to compile what you tell us into one helluva Glossier cleanser.

Thanks for your help, and cheers to skin—which is, and will always be, “in.”
