Glossier Supers Got A Major Relaunch, & I Tried Them First — EXCLUSIVE

One of the most common questions that I always get is about my skincare routine. I guess the notion is that as a beauty editor, I’m trying out new products on a daily basis. When it comes to skin, that’s a bit far from the truth — I tend to stick with what I know. Do I have access to tons of stuff from some of the best brands? Yes. Do I want to risk the state of my complexion by trying out a risky ingredient? Not necessarily. But I did so for the sake of a Glossier Supers review, since the brand released a massive relaunch of the serums today. The trio of serums, packaged in clear, heavy glass bottles, are packed with ingredients that always do my complexion really well. a careful and intentional curation from the brand.

"We like to think of the Supers as supplements for your face; they’re designed to adapt to what your skin needs at any given moment," Melissa Souto, Glossier’s Director of Product Marketing & Development, tells The Zoe Report exclusively. Super Pure, she says, is perfect if your skin is feeling stressed or congested. Super Glow energizes and brightens, and Super Bounce gives an extra dose of hydration. "You’ll see long term results when you use them daily and can layer all three for extra benefits," she notes. The biggest difference between the old serums and the new, the brand explains, are the increased percentages and the updated packaging to give double the product. So equipped with those easy-to-follow instructions and key info, I set out in quest of "Glossier model skin," as social media calls it.

Following a long night of Met Gala coverage, my complexion looked a little bit dull. so I decided to try Super Glow first, as it contains magnesium and vitamin C. "Vitamin C is perhaps the most effective antioxidant we have, topically. Think of it like a fire extinguisher that puts out free radical damage in the skin," Dr. Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, tells me. "It can help protect the skin against UV damage, and even the skin complexion by blocking production of abnormal pigment."

After using a bit of the brand’s Solution, a chemical exfoliator with a 10 percent blend of acids, I used the dropper to apply three generous drops of the serum in the palm of my hands. The consistency looked a bit thin compared to my normal gel textured go-to, but felt so silky once I patted it in. Sometimes, you can feel product sit on the surface of your skin. but Super Glow absorbed super-fast without any hint of grease or residue. I waited a few seconds before finishing my routine with the Priming Moisturizer and the Invisible Shield, and went on about my day. I did all of this before a long train ride to Boston and actually went a bit heavier on the moisturizer in case the air felt dry. Once I emerged from my car, I examined my complexion in my front-facing camera and was mesmerized by how even and glowy my face looked. Granted, Dr. Zeichner tells me that it takes several weeks of continuous years to notice any lightening of dark spots. but I’ve been experimenting with Super Glow for nearly a week now and already see a difference.

I’m excited to play around with the other formulas as well. Super Bounce, with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, will be super clutch when my skin feels dry after a flight, since hyaluronic acid is the ultimate skin plumper. "Think of it like a sponge that can bind to a thousand times its weight in water," Dr. Zeichner assures me. "Within minutes of application, skin will be more hydrated and visibly plumper." And Super Pure, with niacinamide and zinc, can help with those annoying chin and forehead breakouts that I tend to get a few times a month. My only point of concern was layering all of the different ingredients. But theoretically, these ingredients should be able to be used together, Dr. Zeichner says. "Of the three, vitamin C is the only ingredient that is unstable. Both niacinamide and hyaluronic acid are extremely stable and used in the base of many over-the-counter formulations." The best order to layer, according to Souto, is applying Super Pure first, Super Bounce second, and Super Glow last for optimal absorption.

As for me and my quest for Glossier model skin, Souto notes that the meaning of that is somewhat fluid. It doesn’t necessarily indicate a clear and glowing complexion. but it does prioritize the brand’s "Skin First" philosophy. "Our goal is to create effective, intuitive, and approachable products that our customers can build a routine around, no matter where they are in their skincare journey," she says.

In case you don’t want to read a whole self-discovery saga in real time, I’ll skip to the punch line: the serums did improve my skin and most important perhaps for getting results, I truly enjoyed using them.

A popular beauty brand developed a set of serums that replaces the minerals and vitamins you lose by skipping sleep and eating greasy foods

Recently, Glossier sent me their Super Pack of serums to try.

After hearing from a few friends respectively about their newfound appreciation for them, I became curious about what has become a rapidly growing trend in the skincare world. Most importantly, I was intrigued by such a high-value, concentrated way of giving skin a “super pack” of nutrients and vitamins.

As the face of the “skin first, makeup second” movement, Glossier seemed like a natural first choice to turn to.

In case you don’t want to read a whole self-discovery saga in real time, I’ll skip to the punch line: the serums did improve my skin and most important perhaps for getting results, I truly enjoyed using them.

The novelty of using a dropper and the beautiful, clean packaging, frivolous or not, inspired more consistent use from me than I can claim for most skincare products I own. It was fun. I will likely be using these until they’re empty — again a feat I can’t claim for most other skincare products. In particular, the Super Pure and Super Bounce serum were my favorites for their fast absorption, soft, non-restrictive feel, and the clarity or dewiness each brought to my skin, respectively.

Your skin is your largest organ, and it’s a pretty good outer indication of your overall health — which is one reason why we all like to put so much effort into making it look good. As a good indicator, many of the deficiencies in our bodies play out on a larger stage of our skin. Dehydrated? Eating too many greasy foods? You won’t be surprised when your skin looks drier or more problematic.

Serums are meant to replace the minerals and vitamins you lost on your layover and in your hangover.

Glossier currently has three canon serums available for purchase: Super Glow, Super Pure, and Super Bounce. While each is $28, Glossier’s Super Pack — the bundled version of all three serums — is sold for $65 dollars (meaning you save about $20 this way).

To use one, apply 3-4 drops from the dropper onto a clean face and pat into the skin. Follow with moisturizer. Each serum is designed to soak into the skin without leaving a sticky residue, so you won’t have to wait if your next step is makeup application.

Super Bounce is the serum designed for dry skin. If your hangover, airplane ride, or overenthusiastic AC is playing out on your skin, the Bounce serum is designed to replenish what you’ve lost. According to Glossier, hyaluronic acid plumps skin while Vitamin B5 brings back elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is said to hold up to 1000x its weight in water — a great way to plump skin from the inside. Vitamin B5 is found in mushrooms and avocados amd meant to help the skin regenerate new and supple skin layers.

  • Benefits: hydrating, softening, plumping
  • When to use: after layovers, hangovers, and dry spells

Super Glow is the serum meant to brighten and energize your complexion — think a youthful glow. Vitamin C is meant to brighten skin by reducing dark spots and creating more light-reflective skin. Magnesium stimulates the metabolism of tired skin cells to help compensate for the damage you did by neglecting to sleep.

  • Benefits: enhancing, brightening, energizing
  • When to use: after all-nighters, exhausting globe-trotting, and stress-filled weeks

Super Pure is the serum that aims to calm and minimize breakouts without over-drying the skin and making your face feel like it will break apart when you smile. The niacinamide and zinc both soothe redness and calm blemishes. This one might have been my personal favorite, due to its gentle and noticeable departure from toners I’ve used.

  • Benefits: balancing, soothing, reducing redness, purifying
  • When to use: after a week of greasy takeout, that time of the month, and a stressful presentation at work

Over time, the serums are meant to improve your complexion as a whole. I’ll have to get back to you on that claim, but I have noticed an improvement in the short term.

Like an alchemist, you can mix the serums together to personalize your skin care routine. I don’t know that my skin knows that it falls into “combination” and must thereby live within those limits. It tends to just do what it wants, so one standard routine, like many one-size-fits-all solutions, isn’t as perfect as it could be. Having serums that address most of the typical concerns is a nice way to be your own dermatologist, and I find myself rotating through them depending upon the day.

If serums are something you’re interested in, I highly recommend starting with one of the Glossier Super serums, or all three to find out which one works for you individually.

Each serum is hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, and paraben-, fragrance-, and cruelty-free.

"Please restock this soon! My skin is a mess without it!, reads a review of Glossier's Super Pure serum.

Super Glow

Aside from the size of the original Super bottles, the second biggest complaint reviews have is that Super Glow is too watery. Well, guess what? Glossier fixed that, too. The new formulation is thick and milky like Super Bounce, something I've never seen in a vitamin C serum. Now, Super Glow dries down nicely and the consistency makes it easier to distribute just the right amount of product so you aren't wasting any.

As for what the actual serum, it's the one to reach for when your skin is dull, and you're struggling with dark spots. The heart of the formula is a stable form of vitamin C and magnesium that makes skin look more glowy and even-toned without any irritation. Basically, your face will look lit. When I tested Super Glow, I used it like a traditional serum on days when I was tired and needed all the help I could get to look like I was able to sleep peacefully after watching Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile before bed. But, I discovered that a drop of the serum on my cheekbones makes for a great highlight, too.

Glossier Super Bounce Serum Review – Health Web Magazine Images

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Propanediol, Zinc PCA, Citric Acid, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Extract, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose

Glossier Supers | Super Pure, Super Bounce + Super Glow | Review


So I’ve had the Glossier Supers serums for almost 2 months now. I feel like I’ve worked them into my skincare routine and compared them to other products, so I can finally give you guys my take on how The Supers work.A review of the Glossier Supers serums.

First, what are The Supers?

Glossier’s Supers serums are actually 3 different serums that target different skincare concerns. There’s Super Pure, Super Bounce and Super Glow. You can use them alone or together. You can use them daily, or just every once in a while. The whole idea is that they are meant to address specific concerns and you smooth them onto your face as you see fit.Now, let’s go into details.

Super Pure

Super Pure is meant to clear your pores and fight breakouts. Its key ingredients are niacinamide and zinc (the same key ingredients found in the Sephora Clarifying Booster that I reviewed a while back). Niacinamide is soothing and helps reduce redness while zinc clears your pores and reduces sebum production.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Propanediol, Zinc PCA, Citric Acid, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Extract, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose

I’ve mentioned using products with salicylic acid to fight acne before (like this cleanser and this oil), but niacinamide is another great option for treating acne. Although my skin responds well to salicylic acid, I think niacinamide is less drying and maybe a bit more gentle too.Super Pure has been my most used of the Glossier Supers. I’ve used it morning and night and experienced no irritation at all. It doesn’t provide crazy dramatic results, but think it really shines as a preventative measure. It’s something that I’ll put on after cleansing my face (you can see what I mean in this Nighttime Skincare Routine). I like that Super Pure has a very light texture. It feels like water on the skin and it soaks in quickly, which is nice because it doesn’t interfere with other skincare or makeup.

Super Bounce

Super Bounce is my second most used of the Glossier Supers. Its key ingredients are hyaluronic acid and vitamin b5. I’ve mentioned hyaluronic acid before and it holds onto water, helping to keep your skin moisturized. Vitamin B5 helps regenerate your skin, making it more soft and lush.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Biosaccharide Gum-2, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Caprylyl Glycol, Peg-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Polysorbate 80, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Octyldodecanol, Isohexadecane, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate

Usually when I think of a moisturizing serum, I think of something heavy, but the Super Bounce is really light on the skin. Again, it feels like water, but it somehow manages to keep my skin moisturized and feeling soft. This is what I bring with me when I travel because my skin always gets dry on the plane. I’ll usually just add a few drops to my cheeks before putting on my moisturizer. If you have combination skin, you’ll LOVE this because the little pipette lets you apply just where you need extra moisturizer. Of course, you can apply it all over your face too. Do you.

Super Glow

Of the Glossier Supers, Super Glow was the one that I’ve used the least. One reason is that I’m still in love with the Avon Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum for adding glow to my skin. Another reason is that I find that as long as my skin is properly hydrated, I don’t have to worry too much about having glowy skin.That being said, Super Glow is quite nice. Unlike the Avon serum, which has a heavier texture, the Super Glow has a really lightweight texture. That shouldn’t surprise you by now, but I love that all of the Glossier Supers are so thin and light. It really makes a difference when you layer skincare products like I do.Its key ingredients are vitamin c and magnesium pca. Vitamin C helps even your skintone by lightening dark spots. Magnesium PCA stimulates skin cell metabolism, which is supposed to energize the skin.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycereth-26, Propanediol, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Magnesium PCA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol

Super Pure: niacinamide + zinc serum

Glossier Supers Review: New Serums!

Glossier has been on a roll with their product releases lately. The last release was of the extremely popular Haloscope (so popular that Quartz sold out). This time around, Glossier is releasing serums! The Supers are super-concentrated serums packed with essential nutrients to refill skin deficiencies. The whole idea is that you’re more than a “skin type” and your skin products should reflect that. Super Glow, Super Pure and Super Bounce all serve a different purpose for skin. Read more for my full Glossier Supers review!

I was so excited to receive these in the mail and have been testing them out all week. Serums should be applied after you wash your face and before you apply moisturizer. I like to use them twice a day – once in the morning, and once at night.

Super Bounce: hyaluranic acid + vitamin B5 serum

This one is for when your skin is feeling tight or dehydrated. Perfect for long flights because the airplane air is so dry and void of moisture. Out of all the Supers, Super Bounce has the thickest consistency. It’s slightly milky in color.

  • hyaluronic acid: plumps skin with moisture
  • vitamin B5: restores skin elasticity

Super Glow: vitamin C + magnesium serum

This one is perfect for days when your skin feels dull and needs energy. I like to use it on days when I’m feeling tired and my skin looks it. Super Glow has a very light watery texture and absorbs into the skin extremely fast.

  • vitamin c: brightens skin
  • magnesium: energizes cells

Super Pure: niacinamide + zinc serum

This one is for when your skin is stressed, blotchy or breaking out. It’s perfect for when you are going through your time of the month. I’ve been using this one a lot because I’ve had some breakouts on the side of my chin.

  • niacinamide: soothes redness
  • zinc: calms blemishes

The lightness of the serums makes them really easy to use because of the fast absorption rate into the skin. I like to use Super Glow or Super Bounce in the morning depending on how my skin is that day. If it looks tired, I’ll use Super Glow and if it feels dry, I’ll use Super Bounce. I’ve also found that Super Bounce is a great primer for makeup. At night I usually use Super Pure to prevent breakouts.

Each Super is 0.5 fl. oz and is $28. The Super Pack is $65 for all three and part of a well-balanced skincare routine. If you have any questions on my Glossier Supers review, feel free to ask!
