We Tried Glossier's New Sunscreen — & Here's What You Need To Know

Glossier is the beauty brand that’s about to take over the world — or so it hopes. And considering its cult following, control over the sanctity of the color pink, and massive expansion, it just might. We'd even go as far as to say that Glossier is on track to dominate the beauty industry. (Or is it already?) But despite all of the recent launches (a rich moisturizer, brow gel, and its first-ever cream blush), the brand still forgot one important skin-care essential: sunscreen. Well, until now.
Truth be told, most people are less than great at protecting their skin, at least every day. For many, sunscreen feels optional, even though we all know it’s the best defense against early signs of aging and sun damage. Translation: It should feel mandatory. So fans wondered, for two years, where the heck is the SPF? After almost a year of teasing the launch, Emily Weiss and her team of millennial pink worker bees are officially dropping what everyone has been asking for — and we're shocked.
Why? Let's be honest: Most of us don't wear SPF every single day, so we never anticipated such a massive outcry for a Glossier-approved formula. Well, we were wrong. In fact, it’s the most requested product fans have asked Glossier to create, the brand says — and there are tweet receipts to prove it. Check out below how stoked people are about this launch.
We know, we know: Get to the review! Legions of fans will be thrilled to know that the SPF is pretty standard, with one big difference. The formula absorbs faster than even your best serum. (Bonus: Did you see that cute packaging?!) The gel-like consistency smooths over skin easily and does not make your makeup pill. Even better, it’s formulated with SPF 35 (most derms agree that SPF 15 or 20 is too low) and is totally clear — so it's virtually invisible on all skin types and tones. When first pumped out, the formula is an opaque milky liquid, but quickly blends to a clear, undetectable finish. Sounds good enough, right? If you want to try it for yourselves, you can find it only on Glossier’s site for $34 right now. Now all we need is the Glossier perfume...
