Glossier Body Hero Oil Wash Review and Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream Review

Glossier Body Hero Review
Last year Glossier* launched Body Hero* consisting of the Body Hero Daily Oil Wash and the Body Hero Perfecting Cream. Glossier is all about individuaity, glowing skin and you, and Body Hero is inspired by just that - it's skincare but for the body. So here's everything you need to know about this Hero duo...
The Body Hero Daily Oil* retails for £15 for 250ml of product and the Body Hero Perfecting Cream* retails for £18 for 250ml. You can also purchase the pair together here* for £28 saving £5 which also qualifies you for free delivery too!
I think Glossier have it down to a T when it comes to packaging and the body hero duo is no exception. The shower oil comes with a convenient pump and the body lotion is housed in a hygienic tube.
Body Hero Oil Wash - The body oil is blended with 7 beautiful oils including, Grapeseed, Orange Blossom Neroli Blend and Coconut to name but a few. You can find the full list of ingredients here*. It's also paraben, soap and cruelty-free, as well as vegan, hypoallergenic, gynaecologist and dermatologist tested.

I particularly love this kind of oil to milk formula because they are wonderfully efficient and moisturising at the same time. Oil body washes also don't lather up like a conventional shower gel would, but don't be put off as an oil formula is much more conditioning, nourishing and kind to the skin overall compared to a regular shower gel or foam.

Upon application, the oil wash turns from a silky oil into a moisturising milk and honestly it's such a pleasure to use each morning as it feels so luxurious and moisturising on the body, plus it smells oh so divine like it's a spa day every day!

I find two pumps is sufficient for the whole body.
Body Hero Lotion - The lotion also has a fantastic mix of ingredients including the Orange Blossom Neroli Blend, Prickly Pear Extract and Cactus Flower Extract to moisturise as well as Light-Reflecting Particles to give you a beautiful subtle glow. As per the Oil Wash, this is also cruelty and paraben free, hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested.

Upon application the consistency is much like a thick butter, that doesn't feel oily or sticky whatsoever. The lotion for me felt super smooth to the touch and sunk into the skin more or less straight away. This also compliments the shower oil so beautifully with the same Orange Blossom Neroli scent.

Afterwards, my skin felt super hydrated and I could notice a beautiful subtle pink sheen and a tiny bit of sparkle that glistened in the sunlight. I say subtle as it is exactly that. I could only really notice it when my skin was in bright and direct sunlight.

Overall the more I've used this pair over time the more I've noticed how soft my skin has become, which is always a bonus!
The beautiful scent doesn't last all day, however, I definitely recommend layering the Body Oil, Body Cream and even the Glossier You Perfume* which I have reviewed here, for maximum longevity.

Both products have a 12-month shelf life.
Overall Thoughts
I'm in love! The Body Hero duo for me is everything that Glossier stands for, glowy skin, simplicity and performance. As you guys know I have reviewed a few Glossier products now which you can check out here and for me, Glossier are very sure of who they are as a brand and who their customer is and stands for. You can tell that every product they release is well thought out, tested and priced right and everything is always simple, easy to use and suited to anyone and everyone.

The Body Hero duo is a wonderful addition to the Glossier line but if I had to choose I would say the Daily Oil Wash is definitely my favourite, however, I do like how both the cream and oil work well together as a perfect pairing. Price wise I would take the plunge and save yourself £5 and the delivery charge with the duo so that you can really experience their body line as a whole.

So if you love kind to the skin body products that smell divine and help your skin stay hydrated, glowy and soft then this could be the duo for you!

I award the Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash a 4.8 out of 5 and the Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream a 4.7 out of 5.
