Hello! Today’s post is about one of my favourite beauty brands, Glossier! I know they’re not the most eco-conscious brand and I’m on the look out to make swaps that my skin will like! However, their make-up and skincare works really well for me and they are cruelty free. Not all their products are vegan, so I’ve done a run-down of everything I like and use/have used in the past with all the ingredient details included. If you’d like to buy something, you can get 10% off your first order via this link!*
I probably won’t be re-buying Glossier’s non vegan items once my current products have run out and am on the look out for alternatives if you have any suggestions!

Is Glossier’s Skincare Vegan?
Glossier’s Milky Jelly Cleanser was the first product of theirs that I tried and it’s amazing! I love the texture and it really did make a change in my skin. After trying the cleanser, I bought a few other items and then expanded into their make-up range too. I’ve broken the review down product by product so, without further ado, here are the reviews…
Milky Jelly Cleanser
You can use this cleanser to remove make-up or just the day’s pollution and dust. I love the texture and find that it’s really efficient however it does dry my skin out a little bit. It comes in both full size and travel sized and is a vegan product! It also doesn’t have any parabens or sulfates which is fab. Glossier also have another make-up remover which I haven’t tried, but if you need something a bit stronger to remove your waterproof mascara then their Milky Oil might be the one for you.
Milky Jelly Cleanser: £15 full sized bottle (177ml), £8 travel sized bottle (60ml)
Solution is a bit hit and miss for me. It’s a chemical exfoliant that used several acids (AHA, BHA and PHA). It’s designed to brighten & smoothen your complexion by getting rid of dead skin. This product is vegan and in a clinical trial, 3 out of 4 participants said their skin was brighter after a week of use! I found a slight improvement, but a friend of mine noticed a much better result than I did.
Solution: £19 per bottle (130ml)
I really like this moisturiser – it’s easily buildable and super hydrating. I really like how it’s fragrance free too. There’s also a heavier moisturiser for winter, but I haven’t tried that one yet. This product isn’t vegan unfortunately, and contains honey extract.
Priming Moisturiser: £18 per tube (50ml)
This product is like my guilty pleasure. I have tried most of the different flavours and love birthday cake, rose and berry the most. I find it so hydrating and the consistency is great. The tubes last a long time too, however it isn’t a vegan product due to it containing beeswax & lanolin.
Balm Dotcom: £10 per tube (15ml)
Is Glossier’s Make-up Vegan?

This is the best concealer I’ve tried, as it’s super buildable and blends in really naturally. It comes in 12 shades which isn’t great, but it does fit in with your skin colour quite easily as it’s so light. I never feel like I have make-up on and it’s not cak-ey or heavy on your face which I love. I’m gutted that it has beeswax in and so isn’t vegan. If you have any recommendations for a similar concealer, I’m all ears!
Stretch Concealer: £15 per tub (4.8g)
Lash Slick Mascara
I bought this mascara almost as soon as it came out and was really excited to try it. I think it works really well as a lengthening mascara however I’d like a little more definition and volume. It’s water resistant which is enough for me, but if you need a waterproof one then it’s best to give it a miss. I won’t be repurchasing this one as it’s not quite what I was looking for, and it contains beeswax so isn’t vegan.
Lash Slick: £14 per tube (8.5g)
This Glossier classic acts as a gateway for many of the brands loyal fans, and I see why! It was one of the first make-up products I tried and is so easy to apply and gives great results. It fills out and keeps your brows in place without feeling gel-ly or looking unnatural which is the look I prefer. It comes in 3 basic shades and then also a clear option if you just want to tame your brows without adding any colour. This is another one that is sadly not vegan, so I’ll be looking for alternatives when my tube is finished.
Boy Brow: £14 per tube (3.12g)
I was a little skeptical about this as I’d never used a liquid blush before but I’m a big fan now! There are new shades being released quite frequently now, but I have ‘puff’ which was one of the first options. It’s a pale pink and I love it. Super buildable so it can be subtle or not; whatever you prefer and it lasts ages. This is also another favourite that isn’t vegan as it contains carmine which is a dye from insects.
Cloud Paint: £15 for a tube (10ml)
Generation G Lipstick
I have the shade ‘Cake’ and I love the subtlety of the lipstick. It is a bit dry though so I’d recommend applying with some lip-balm. They’re great for day-to-day wear and are vegan! I’d like to try shade ‘like’ next!
Gen G: £14 per tube (3g)
So, Is Glossier Vegan & Cruelty-Free?
I hope you found this post about Glossier useful! If you have any suggestions for more sustainable products which are also vegan, I’d love to hear them! If you’d be interested in a Glossier dupes post which gives vegan options for the products which contain animal products, then let me know in the comments! Bye for now x
