Let’s talk a bit of skincare today. If you read my earlier post about my current skincare routine, you’d know that I’ve been using the Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream. Well my pot ran out right when the Glossier Bubblewrap Eye Cream launched late last month. Great timing, I’d say! Since I’m such a sucker for Glossier’s marketing I couldn’t help but put in an order.

Bubblewrap is the brand’s first eye cream, but it also happens to be a 2-in-1 kinda product for both the under-eyes and the lips. Full disclosure: I haven’t ever used this cream on my lips. I personally just don’t see a need to, especially now as the weather is getting warmer. I’d rather save all the hydration for under my eyes.
Let’s look at the product info and claims.
An ultra-hydrating eye and lip cream.
Bubblewrap’s power comes from a combination of some of nature’s strongest hydrators(hyaluronic acid, squalane, avocado oil), antioxidant-rich blueberry extract, and a unique, featherweight texture that delivers these key ingredients where and when you need them the most. The result? Undereyes and lips appear fresh, smooth, and hydrated: today, and over time. Plus, the light-as-silk, water-in-oil emulsion doesn’t feel sticky or pill under makeup.
Hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, safe for contact lens wearers, safe for sensitive eyes, paraben free, cruelty free, vegan.
So what do I think of the Glossier Bubblewrap Eye Cream? For reference, I’ve been using this product for about two weeks now.
I feel like this is the perfect eye cream for a beginner or someone who’s just getting into skincare at a young age. It’s quite a thin consistency that’s very easy to pat & absorb into the skin. But if you’re in need of a real hydration kick, or if you want anti-aging ingredients, this is definitely not the eye cream for you. It’s just another example of Glossier staying firmly in the millennial/Gen Z camp with their product offerings.
I generally use this at night with the rest of my skincare, but it’s definitely light enough to use during the day or right before makeup. I like this eye cream, but I’m certainly not in love with it by any means. It does leave my skin feeling hydrated and a bit smoother than normal, but it’s so thin that I’m not sure its effects last that long (at least on me).
I have pretty dry skin so I’m usually looking for something a bit more robust in the hydration department. I think this is fine for use in the spring/summer months when my skin generally is not as parched, but perhaps not so much in the cooler months. I’ll definitely finish out my tube, but likely will not repurchase. It’s $26.00 for 22 ml of product, so I’d say it’s definitely more mid-market in terms of price.
Have you tried Glossier Bubblewrap Eye Cream yet? If so, what did you think? I’d love to know!
FYI – I’m taking a little break from the blog next week to focus on a work project, so I’ll see you here back in June with more content! Have a lovely holiday weekend ❤️.
