A Beauty Obsessed New Yorker’s experience at the Glossier Showroom in Lower Manhattan.
At the beginning of December, Glossier announced that its permanent showroom was officially open to the public. The showroom is located in Lower Manhattan, on the outskirts of my regular stomping grounds of Chinatown. Housed on the penthouse floor of the building that their offices reside in, the showroom is open 7 days a week.
Being just as Glossier obsessed as the next cool girl, my best friend and I made it a point to check it out. We met downstairs and quickly made our way inside where a very sweet staff member was there to greet us. She showed us into the elevator and up we went to the top floor.
Once those elevator doors opened we were in heaven. Everything you can find on their website was right there in front of us to swatch, try and buy! We immediately hit up the Serums and then made our way to the rest of their cult-favorite skincare products.
After we were done shopping around, another staff member came to “take our order.” She pulled out a notepad listing all their products and checked off the items that we wanted. After that, we took our orders to the counter where another staff member in the back packed the items into their iconic pink bubble wrap pouches.
The whole shopping process was pretty seamless and the showroom staff were all eager to help. It was an added bonus that everybody kept complimenting me on my “Glossier Pink” hair color! I walked out with a Priming Moisturizer, a Coconut Balm Dotcom and a Super Pure Serum.
A Mini-Review on the Products.
I tried the products out the moment I got home. The Priming Moisturizer is to die for. It hydrates while prepping the skin for makeup, making the face feel incredibly soft and smooth. As for the Coconut Balm Dotcom, it’s the original Balm Dotcom but smells amazing. I use it as a lip salve, especially now during the Winter. Then there’s the Super Pure Serum. This serum was my main motivation for going to the showroom in the first place. I use it every day and night as part of my daily skincare routine and so far I’m loving it.
My experience at the Glossier showroom was a positive one and I’m more than likely to go back. The entire place is incredibly instagrammable and a skincare enthusiasts paradise. If you’re from NYC or planning to visit soon you should definitely stop by because I can guarantee you’ll walk out with something you’ll love.
