Good, mentioned on here before. 

How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?
Pop-up in NY, one coming to London later in the summer and online at glossier.com

What’s good about it?
This is a great, solid, does-the-job moisturiser. Easy to use, the tube is sturdy and doesn’t dispense too much product in one go. The juice inside is reassuringly white, light and absorbs nicely. You can indeed layer it as described and it does give a nice glow to the skin. Not sticky or greasy and doesn’t pill if you over-apply. Skin stays hydrated all day and it works well under makeup. That’s really all there is to say. It does what it says on the box.

What’s not so good about it?
Genuinely not much. It works.

Would I repurchase?
Yes

Do you need it?
If you’re in the market for a new moisturiser /want to put all your money into your serum/don’t want to flash the cash on your moisturiser stage, yes.
