Let’s be honest, it was all about the hype. Glossier drops a new product, we flock. Yep, we’re talking about Glossier’s Body Hero. Only, once  we popped that bubbly pink packaging open we realized this is the kind of hype we can get behind. It felt like something special to be apart of. We’ve often wondered what’s in the magic sauce that catapulted the rose quartz (capital) G from cool-girl status to cult status. It all comes down to Glossier’s talent for shedding the layers, and getting to the flesh of what Millennial women truly want. Literally and metaphorically of course.

Maybe you haven’t stepped outside lately to be faced with a billboard, or scrolled through IG, or even used the internet and accidentally caught a banner ad in your peripherals. Glossier recently launched a campaign to accompany their latest body products, a frothy yet creamy yet oily body wash and lotion duo called Body Hero. The campaign featured lady-icons of the social media age in nothing but a state of nature.Why Glossier's Body Hero Will Actually Empower Your Shower Experience. NOW ON VERITE WOMAN --- Body Hero, Body Positive, Female Figure, Skincare, Hypoallergenic, Gynecologist tested, Emily Weiss, Paloma Elsesser, Swin Cash, Tyler Haney, Pia Arrobio, and Mekdes Mersha, Self love, how to be confidant, Instagram, Feminism. This is why our love for this product duo is two-fold. First it was banding together with our fellow sisters in the name of happy, healthy skin and a body-positive message. Then we hopped in our showers, lathered up, and realized that this product dup actually does what it promises. The reason it works so well? They yet again nailed the basics of what we truly want in our products:

The Daily Oil:

  • This body wash has got all our favorite oils such as coconut, sunflower seed (vitamin E, baby) and sesame that naturally soothes and plumps skin
  • The Daily Oil is gynecologist tested, and vagina approved!

The Perfecting Body Cream:

  • After your stint in the shower, this body cream locks in moisture that will stay with you all day
  • The cactus flower, yucca, and prickly pair extract is what makes this such a long lasting hydrator, regardless of environment
  • It leaves a velvety, never greasy finish

Along with the launch, each of the campaigns women posted to her social fronts, authentically sharing her own struggle with body love. In turn they reminded us that no woman (regardless of how many followers she might have on Instagram) is unscathed by the downers of body insecurities. It’s the prompt that every time we open our bathroom cabinet says “Be gentle with yourself.”

And A few of our other favorite Glossier products:

Moisturizing Moon Mask:

This hydrating mask really sets the bar high. Almost a daily ritual, for girls living in tough cities this will be your end of day retreat. It is so calming, and non-intrusive you lay it on and practically forget it’s there. The longer you leave it, the more it seems to reset dry skin breathing new life into tired pores. We’ve shared our love for honey as an ally of healthy looking skin, and it just happens to be one of the main ingredients in this product.

Boy Brow:

Perfecting the art of the brow. A game we all played for far too long, until Boy Brow hit the internet and we could all stop over-coiffing those above-eye-caterpillars. Boy brow is an everyday tool that will comb out those brows, add a little shape and shade while doing so. You’re left with a look that says laissez faire, when really it was Glossier.

Haloscope:

As die hard highlighters, this one takes the cake on glossy, glowy skin. Throw away those conturing tools, and make space for this stick to deliver a dew that quite literally finds your light for you. We’re super into Quartz for a rosé look.

Invisible Shield SPF:

If you’re an avid Vérité reader you know how important our SPF is. Glossier took their time to really scan the market for what worked, and what really didn’t only to turn around and create possibly the best SPF out there. That’s not just by our standards, it’s an internet favorite!

FEMME FEED | AN INSTALLATION OF “OF THE MOMENT”
STORIES FOR GIRLS IN THE KNOW.

Who run the world? Educated girls! In author Paul Hawken’s recent book Drawdown he shared a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming and the damage we have done to our earth — all solutions within our everyday reach. Number six on his list is us! Yep, girls can save the world, but we need to get educated first. While in the United States provides students with educational resources no matter their gender, many third world countries do not have the same offerings.

Hawken’s research shows that it is specifically educating women that will help bump up the worlds economy, while simultaneously aiding in managing population issues that add to the decline in resources. An infographic by the Global Partnership of Education tells us that 15 million girls will never get the opportunity to attend primary school, compared to the 10 million boys who will. Many of these cases are due to schools not being made female friendly, the cost of the school vs. the poverty of the girl’s family, not being able to attend school while menstruating, and early marriage. However, getting them in school young and keeping them there can halt issues such as girls being married off  when they are still children.

NOW ON VERITE WOMAN --- Global Warming, CO2 emissions, Education for girls, educating girls in africa, third world countries, paul hawked, drawdown, solutions for global warming, feminism, female empowerment, how to empower young girls, Climate changeSo what exactly can ensuring education for the young women mean? Well firstly, it can keep them and their future children alive! Educated females have a lower rate of maternal and child mortality. That same infographic tells us the kiddie of an educated mother is 50% more likely to live past 5 years of age, and their child will be past down a level of knowledge as well. Simultaneously, educated women are less likely to have large families while living in poverty — a huge detriment to our hemorrhaging population. It will also lower the percent of HIV/AIDS transmitted due to a better understanding of sexual education. School will give them the ability to understand the benefits of a more sustainable lifestyle, reducing CO2 by an estimated 119.2 gigatons by 2050. That’s the biggest save research has stumbled upon thus far.

Once educated, these women will give back opportunities to communities and Mother Earth in countless ways. Staying in school means they’re eligible for higher wages, and more upward mobility in their field — plus/plus for the economy, and their families. These women will be able to give back to industries such as agriculture, and rebuilding their local economies. Not to mention they will deliver a fresh POV to worldly issues in their communities and on a global front.

The education of girls worldwide has been on an upward trajectory, but we need to ensure it doesn’t stop here! By making schools affordable, providing women with satisfactory hygiene products, and by making schools female-friendly we can help save our biggest Girl Boss — Mother Earth!

The Best Face Oils On The Market, For Every Price Range!

The Best Face Oils On The Market, For Every Price Range!, NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- Facial oil, Pai, Herbivore Botanicals, Credo, Violet Grey, Glossier, Into The Gloss, Emily Weiss, Linda Rodin, Rodin, Best Face Serum, anti-aging, omega, fatty acids, hyaluronic Acid.Facial oils may have come in hot on the beauty scene but this trend’s not fuckin’ around — actually it happens to be an obsessive part of our everyday routine. After your morning shower, before bed, even a mid-day pick me up. That’s why we’ve scanned the scene, tried a few ourselves (someone has to take on for the team), and picked our best finds for every budget! By now you know the drill: clean ingredients, cruelty free, industry friendly.

  1. Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil, $40
    Upon further research we came to the conclusion that $40 is a pretty standard price for a facial oil. These jars may be small but they are mighty in beneficial ingredients. Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil is an industry favorite (it just made Into The Gloss’s Top 3 List), and is known for brimming with those vitamins that enrich the youth and supple character your skin deserves. One of our Pia hooked readers adds, “It’s hydrating with all the omegas but not too oily and it’s really good for redness and irritation”. Sold.

  2. Rodin Jasmine & Neroli Face Oil, $170
    This jar of joy is a bit of an investment — but holy cow is it worth it. Featuring two of our very favorite ingredients, Jasmine and Neroli, you’ll want this to second as your perfume. Linda Rodin just happens to be the lady we look up to most — being in her late 60’s and still looking bomb, we’ll do anything she tells us to. Made up of an abundance of natural oils from the world over, this is the closest thing shy of a beauty IV straight to the blood stream you can get your hands on.The Best Face Oils On The Market, For Every Price Range!, NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- Facial oil, Pai, Herbivore Botanicals, Credo, Violet Grey, Glossier, Into The Gloss, Emily Weiss, Linda Rodin, Rodin, Best Face Serum, anti-aging, omega, fatty acids, hyaluronic Acid.
  3. Glossier Super Bounce Skin Serum, $28
    Although this pick is technically a serum, it does many of the same beneficial things as an oil, and has many of the same characteristics. Hyaluronic acid is a savior for replenishing that ‘bounce’ (hence the name) back into dry, weathered derm. It’s a substance natural to our joints and skin, but as we age we lose it’s elasticity — Glossier wants to give back what is rightly yours.

  4. 5Yina Enlighten Spring Beauty Oil, $145
    Here’s another investment for you that’s just setting you up for a bright future. 5Yinna creates a face oil for every season of the year, based on TCM’s tried and true outlook on beauty and health, but we’ve used Spring year round. We would like to report it’s a dream to massage into your skin, knowing how many natural herbs it contains. It’s the perfect weight to sink into the skin swiftly before you lay your head on the pillow. Find more reasons we love 5Yinna here.

  5. Willow Mayer Beauty Bahia Vitality Marula Face Oil, $25
    The name may be a mouthful, but the dropper will deliver a face-full of good. This product is a great way to lock in moisture to dry skin, and set it up for a full day of glowing. Budget friendly, and proven to be a shopper favorite, it has a lot of the great ingredients that we see in other face oils for a lower price point.
  6. Herbivore Botanicals Citrine Body Oil, $44
    Technically a body oil, we’ve fearlessly been putting this on our faces for years and guess what? It works wonders! The scent of this oil is highly addictive, and conjures memories of summer evenings in LA under the citrus trees. Full of good fatty acids, this moisture is the kind that doesn’t just sit atop the skin, but within it.
