Ahhhhhhh I didn’t realize I had such a problem with body wash hoarding til on the podcast when Becca fully called me out over my shower gel obsession. But what can I say – I love being clean and smelling good (don’t we all?) and go wild for a great body wash. But whatever. My latest addiction is Glossier Body Hero. When I ordered Glossier Lash Slick I ended up also ordering the Body Hero Daily Oil Wash and Daily Perfecting Cream as they had such stellar product reviews. And man, was I in for a treat as I have this obsession with any and all things orange blossom – this has an orange blossom + neroli fragrance which is positively divine!
Before I get into the breakdown of the products I want to review the ingredients overall. I really do try to use mostly natural products on my body as I have my whole crazy surface area rule (I try to only use natural products on my body and I only use natural deodorant, so I don’t feel terrible if I use a high-tech cream or a non-natural mascara, etc). These are not all natural. And while I really respect Emily Weiss and admire what she has built at Glossier, I do question and disagree with her attitude about ingredients (she thinks her customer doesn’t care, as long as the products are effective.) That being said, I was a total gonner the second I smelled these.They smell absolutely incredible.
But yeah it’s important to point out that they are not 100% natural. The Daily Oil Wash is a shower oil and contains Coconut, Meadowfoam, Olive, and Soybean Oils along with Sesame Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Grapeseed Oil. It’s super hydrating and also amazing to shave your legs with. The Daily Perfecting Cream contains a hydrating desert plant blend (Cactus Flower, Prickly Pear, Yucca) to hydrate, AHAs, and light-reflecting particles for a flattering glow.nBoth products are made in the USA and free of parabens.

Daily Oil Wash
I love the Daily Oil Wash. It’s honestly like a dream. Shower oils are my favorite (I also adore this one from L’Occitane) as they get skin super clean, hydrate, and are great for shaving.) If you’ve never tried a shower oil I can’t say enough good things – especially if you have dry skin like me. Unlike an oil cleanser for your face, you can apply it to wet skin just like you’d apply a body wash. The idea is that the oil attracts dirt and sweat like a magnet and then sweeps it away as you rinse it off (without stripping the skin barrier or drying it out). This leaves skin super silky and hydrated.
The Daily Perfecting Cream is at first blush just a really nice body lotion. It’s rich and creamy and ultra hydrating. But it’s got all these other benefits. For one, it contains tamarind (which is packed with AHAs) to gently smooth and exfoliate. It also contains light-reflecting particles to help flatter and even out your skin tone. These are so so subtle (you won’t be shiny or overly shimmery, your skin will just look really good! It’s my favorite body moisturizer right now – perfect for summer. It absorbs very quickly and leaves skin ultra soft and smooth.
The products contain an orange blossom + neroli blend. If anyone at Glossier is reading this, please please consider turning this into a perfume. It’s absolute heaven! Fellow orange blossom obsessees, you are going to be addicted.
Two thumbs up for both of these. I recommend ordering the Body Hero Duo which contains both products, for $5 off!
