Hello, my pumkins! Today, I am sharing with you my honest Glossier Body Hero Cream Review. I’ve been eager to share my thoughts on this product because I usually never review body care products but I definitely want to change that. I think body care is as important as face or hair care. Moreover, I don’t find a lot of reviews on body products.
Anyway, if you want to know my honest thoughts on this Glossier body cream, then keep on reading. Don’t forget to check out my previous post: CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR HER AND FOR HIM
Glossier Body Hero Cream Review
This body cream retails for 22$ (27CAD$) and comes with 250ml/8.4fl oz of product.
According to Glossier, this body cream does more than just moisturize. It’s enhancing, fast-absorbing and moisturizing. It has “an antioxidant-rich mix of Cactus Flower Extract, Prickly Pear Extract, and Yucca Extract [which] keeps [the] skin moisturized all day with zero residues and zero stickiness (so you can put your clothes on now)”. It also has “tiny light-reflecting particles and brightening plant extracts [to] give [the] skin an instant, radiant glow”. And, “orange Blossom Neroli Blend [to] give a subtle, baby-fresh scent”.

The product is cruelty-free and is available at Glossier.com
First of all, the product does not come in any box or container. Glossier sends it as it is which I appreciate because it’s always nice to avoid unnecessary waste. However, the packaging of the cream is a standard squeezable plastic bottle, it looks pink and has the Glossier logo in white. The packaging is very simple, in fact, I am not a big fan of it. I don’t find it aesthetic but it’s definitely practical and it does the job! On another hand, I would have preferred a more sustainable packaging but well.
Concerning the formula, this body cream is alright. It feels very lightweight and it absorbs properly into the skin. It also smells really good, it has a really “fresh” scent which I absolutely love, and it gives a gorgeous glow. Moreover, it does not feel sticky at all and like Glossier claims, you can easily wear your clothes directly after applying it. However, it is not moisturizing enough. When I used it, I always felt like my skin was still dry. Considering that “moisturizing” is the sole purpose of this body cream, it does not deliver what it’s supposed to. Take in consideration that I live in Canada and during the months I tried it, the climate was very dry. It might feel different with a more humid weather.
Conclusion – Glossier Body Hero Cream Review 6/5
To conclude, this is definitely not my favorite body cream. It does not do what it claims to do hence, I don’t think i’ll ever repurchase it. It’s lightweight and absords pretty quickly into the skin, however, it’s just not hydrating at all.
