If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that last weekend I went to New York City to visit a few friends and celebrate my birthday! One of the things that is always on my list when I visit New York is to do a little shopping. Since I packed light, my goal was to focus on stores that we don’t have in Columbus. Topshop, Zara, and All Saints are usually my first stops. However, this trip The Glossier Showroom was one store I didn’t want to miss.
I’ve heard tons about Glossier over the last year, yet I hadn’t tried a single product. Therefore, I knew I needed to take the time to stop by The Showroom. I was a little confused by the location when I looked it up on my phone. It is on the edge of Chinatown but only a short walk from Soho. The Showroom is located on the top floor, so you walk into a small lobby and take the elevator to the Penthouse.
What I love about the location is it feels exclusive, you have to know about it to find it. You don’t stumble upon it by walking down the street. The Showroom is in a beautiful airy space and unlike any other store. It truly feels like a Showroom with products on display to try but all of the stock is in a storage space. I loved this idea because it didn’t feel like you were in a typical beauty store.
I walked around and tried tons of the different products, but the one that truly sold me was the Balm Dotcom. I loved it so much, I bought two! If you’ve not heard about this product, it is a universal skin salve for anywhere you have dry skin. I bought the classic to use on my hands, specifically my knuckles and cuticles. During the winter months, my knuckles and cuticles get so dry that normal hand cream doesn’t cut it! It is also the perfect size to throw in any size purse. I also bought the mint flavored Balm Dotcom to use on my lips.
If you happen to be in New York City, I highly recommend checking out the Glossier Showroom. It is the perfect space to be introduced to the brand or pick up some of your favorite products!
