Terrible Allergic Reaction

Let me start by saying I love this company's morals and values and of course their makeup! I was incredibly excited to try this product. A bit about me and my skin: I have very dry skin to begin with and was looking to minimize the size of my pores along with brightening my skin, not necessary for the use of treating acne, being that my skin does not break out much anymore. I'd also like to add that I would not consider my skin sensitive at all. I have never experienced a bad reaction to any skin care products before. I'm not one to write many reviews but I thought I'd comment on my experience with this product. I used this product right after applying the milky jelly cleanser for about 2 nights. When initially applying the product, it stung but I did not think much of it, I also turned a little red but also, thought little of it. By the 3rd day, my face was was VERY dry, swollen, red, itchy and had bumps underneath my skin (which was probably due to the itchiness), also my lips suffered from immense dryness. By the 4th day, I thought my skin would improve but I woke up practically not being able to open and close my mouth without feeling like my face was "stuck." My face and lips felt like sandpaper. I have never experienced dry skin like this in my life! It was profoundly bad on my jawline and cheeks, nothing was really affected on my forehead. The texture of my skin looks shriveled and wrinkly due to the lack of moisture (no matter how much moisturizer I applied). I also have extremely puffy under eye bags, and it seems like the redness and bumpiness has not changed. My skin has honestly never looked this bad and as of right now I'm trying to lay low until my skin heals. Clearly, I am suffering from an allergic reaction. I advise testing a small patch of the skin with this product before applying it all over the face. Being that there are also many good reviews of this product, I am not discouraging anyone from purchasing it, but to please use with caution.

Improved my skin

For the longest time I stopped using this product, and I would always suffer from break outs, I was disappointed with how my skin looked and felt, everything seemed uneven and rough. I finally brought the solution back into my skin care routine (I'm pretty sure I stopped using it due to laziness, there was no other reason I would have) and I immediately starting noticing results. After cleansing (using a gentle cleanser, even though I have oily skin) I would follow up with the solution on a cotton pad, always pressing not swiping, better for your skin! As soon as it would dry, I would apply me serums and moisturizer. I always use it at night, never in the morning for personal reasons. The consistency of the solution is liquid, absolutely necessary to use a cotton pad, I managed to find super thing cotton pads that didn't over absorb the product so I never feel like I'm wasting it. The smell, pleasant for what it is. No harsh chemical scent that makes you hold your breathe as your putting this stuff on, just a fresh scent that fades almost immediately after you use it. You shouldn't use it on cuts or broken skin, but if you're unaware there is broken skin, you'll feel it with a sharp sting, aside from that, I never feel pain or discomfort when applying, however, it is an acid so if you do experience slight tingling its normal! Once it dries it leaves a slight tacky feeling but as soon as you're completed your skin care routine, you won't notice anything different. I never had any irritation from using this, but you should always spot test an acid if you're aware you have sensitive skin. And always remember to use a sunscreen before you go out in the morning, even if it's raining! Since using this for a month now, my skin is visibly smoother, breakouts are nearly non existant, aside from hormonal ones, my acne scarring is minimizing which I thought would never happen, and I'm seeing fewer black heads, especially on my nose. I have no regrets purchasing this magic.

You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.

I was lucky enough to escape high school with minimal acne. However, as soon as I turned 19, all hell broke loose. I had painful, cystic pimples on my chin. I had small, clustered pimples on my cheeks. I had blackheads on my nose. I tried EVERYTHING. Rodan & Fields, Proactiv and Clinique. Every retinol, retinoid, peel, exfoliant, acid and magic potion. Nothing fixed all of my problems, and nothing yielded long-term results. In fact, most products made things worse. I was now experiencing dry patches, discoloration, and even scarring. Enter Glossier Solution. Within 1 month of purchasing solution, my face was almost completely clear of acne, cystic pimples and those tiny little suckers on my cheeks. Redness was down, tone was even, skin glowed, and scars were even less noticeable. Everything was great, and this lulled me into a false sense of security. When you don't have acne, it's not really on your radar. This was lead to my demise. When Solution was re-stocked back in May, I still had a bit left in my last bottle, so I didn't re-order it. When it finally ran out in July, I found out it would not be restocked until September. "Okay," I thought, "No big deal. I'll use that old target glycolic toner to tide me over until it's restocked." My poor naive soul. Slowly by surely, as August came around, more and more pimples began to arise. Today is September 1st and I look almost exactly as I did before I met Solution. Let me tell you, I cannot wait until Solution is re-stocked and never again will I take it for granted. Don't think, just buy it. And in a few months when it is restocked, buy it again. Trust me.

holy grail

this stuff is pretty miraculous for me. i understand it won't work for everyone - it does work for me. i have incredibly sensitive, cystic and comedogenic acne prone combination skin, with massive pores, large sebaceous filaments, and blackheads. i'm also allergic to butylene glycol, a petroleum derivative and moisturizing agent in most moisturizers, toners, serums, etc. i've spent the better part of my life and money fighting my acne; retinA, clyndamycin, differin, neutrogena acne washes, witch hazel, intense chemical exfoliants, every answer the internet has to acne. a couple months ago my dermatologist prescribed me oral doxycycline hyclate, an antibiotic, for my cystic acne. i needed something else to improve the comedones and texture of my skin. my skin is really sensitive from the years of harsh acne treatments, so i put aside my the ordinary aha bha peeling solution, herbivore blue tansy mask, etc., and ordered solution to see if it would help. I' ve been using solution for almost a month, in conjecture with the doxycycline, and the improvement in my skin has been incredible. My pores have shrunk drastically, and have been clear for as long as i've used solution. my pores have never been clear for longer than a few days. the pih from my healing cystic breakouts has dramatically decreased, and so has the redness and inflammation. my skin texture is smooth, soft, and i get multiple compliments on how smooth my skin looks. my skin is always glowy, it doesn't overproduce oil, my dry patches have decreased, i have no blackheads. I love the forumlation, i love how the fragrance isn't too much to the point of irritation, i love how it supports the work my oral acne medication is doing, and i love how much i love my skin now

This actually works! Will buy again and again.

Let me start off by saying, when starting this you can expect a period of purging (it'll break out with more zits than normal). So those reviews where people say it ruined their skin just didn't give it try for long enough and wait out the purging period. This period lasted about half the bottle for me, so your skin might get a lot worse before it starts getting better...but OH MY GOD when it starts getting better it makes all worth it. I'm so glad I stuck it out. (I highly recommend using COSRX hydrocolloid pimple patches during this time to make this period suck a lot less because it'll heal up a zit in 1-2 days.) My skin is so smooth now, baby soft and my pores are clearing and getting smaller. Once the purging period was over I haven't had any big breakouts, and the number of zits I have at a given time has been decreasing a lot. I'm down to only having 1 or 2 small zits at time, as opposed to 10+, and I expect it to keep working and get me down to zit free soon. I haven't had skin this clear for this long in years. I'm 27, and the last couple years since moving to the city my skin has been so bad, worse than my teens, with never ending breakouts. I blame air pollution, hormones and my chocolate addiction. Even if my skin did clear up for a couple days it felt really rough and more pores were big. I was using various acne cleansers and washing my face 3 times a day (AM, after work to wash of the pollution, and before bed) but nothing helped. I'm so glad I've finally found something that really works (and doesn't bleach my clothes and sheets like benzoyl peroxide does ) My routine consists of using Milky Jelly Cleanser and/or Cerave Hydrating Facial Cleanser, followed by Thayers Witch Hazel toner, then Solution followed by various serums and moisturizer. And every couple nights finishing with rose hip seed oil. I hope I can make my bottle last until it comes back in stock...then I'm stocking up so I never have to be without it ever again.

I have like SERIOUS dry skin and it’s also super sensitive! It breaks out easily and it’s always peeling/flacking (like always, doesn’t matter the season.) Wearing foundation almost highlights the issue because you can SEE all the little flakes. But without it my skin is red and uneven 😫 I need HELP! Skincare routine help! I need something relatively low maintenance and hopefully not too pricey! 🤞🏼🤞🏼

I have also added this to my skin routine. I am on my second bottle and since I started using it, my flakes, patches, and texture disappeared. I only use it at night to not over do it and focus on hydration during the day.

Glossier skin care products! Are they any good? I’m dealing with dry skin, black heads, wrinkles , dark circles and larger pores... Is the facial cleanser good? What about the super duo serums? Thank you 😀

Glossier Solution! It’s gentle enough not to dry you out more, but leaves your face smooth and clear of leftover makeup and any environmental gunk in your pores from the day.
