I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m really really vain. I wouldn’t pay actual human money to keep this website alive otherwise, you know? There is, however, one thing that drives my psychotic obsession with skin care up to 11.
I’m talking about Korean television.
I don’t know if there’s something in the water over there, or maybe God just loves the peninsula a tiny bit more. Whatever the reason, I think you all understand me when I say goddamn, Koreans have crazy good skin.
I know, I know. It’s not realistic. Korean celebrities spend a lot of time and money getting facial treatments to maintain their glowing faces. We all know no one is getting glass skin from Etude House toners, right?
But logic doesn’t really matter after 6 straight hours of Suzy’s close-ups.
Seriously, though, it’s not like they all have perfect and unblemished skin. I think what really fascinates me is how healthy and glowy they look, like they all took Lizzo’s advice to heart and started guzzling water at every opportunity.
I’m sure it’s a combination of skin care and makeup to get that glass skin look on tv, but I live in a humid country and my skin is finicky. I’m not about to drown myself in five essences and six serums daily.
Which brings me to Glossier Futuredew, aka glass skin in a bottle.
I’m not kidding when I say it’s everything to me right now. There’s nothing quite like it, and even Glossier is hard pressed to describe what it actually is.
Is it skin care? Is it makeup?
Honestly, who gives a fuck?
It’s magic, as far as I’m concerned.
Glossier says Futuredew should be the last step in your skin care routine and honestly I kind of get it. It’s like saran wrap for your face, if saran wrap was actually good for you and had actual long-term skin care benefits.
The product starts out thick and tacky — you can almost feel the oils in the formula when you rub it between your fingers — so patting is the most efficient method of application. Glossier recommends using two pumps but I find that one is more than enough for my entire mug.
And just like that I’ve got glass skin for days, honey.
The result is immediate. You get that glossy finish the minute Futuredew hits your skin and your face just looks healthy and hydrated for the entire day. 3 PM slump? Never met her. I look well-rested even though I’m operating on two hours of sleep after binge-watching Master in the House all night.
The best part is that my face actually feels… good. It’s like putting on a nice light cardigan on a chilly day; you just feel cozy and protected somehow.
I’ve never felt this loved and comforted by skin care, is what I’m saying.
I love Glossier Futuredew so much that I’ve taken to using it twice a day as my main moisturizer. It absorbs stupid fast and my dry skin has seriously never been happier.
It’s perfect for lazy no-makeup days, but I’m extra so I like to use it with my Laneige Layering Cover Cushion for the ultimate glass skin experience. Honestly, the finish is so good that I don’t even feel compelled to use concealer on my remaining pimple scars and hyperpigmentation.
If any of this sounds good to you, now is actually the best time to give Futuredew a shot because Glossier is currently on sale! (You can use my referral code if you’re feeling generous.)
If you’re very much done with the matte life, I suggest you stop second-guessing yourself and just dew it. Buy Futuredew.
