Hydrated skin = happy skin, and our Glam Bag runner-up by GLOSSIER delivers just that thanks to a rich combination of ceramides, fatty acids, shea butter, and murumuru butter to strengthen your skin’s barrier and ensure hydration lasts all day, which earned this hydrating cream an average of 4.66 out of 5 hearts.

Ipster fetchingmommy especially loves the way it nourishes her dry skin. “This is going to be my go to moisturizer/primer during the winter months.

SUNDAY RILEY A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum

Rounding out the top three of our top reviewed Glam Bag picks is a favorite from SUNDAY RILEY. Their anti-aging retinoid serum has been dubbed a “miracle cream” by Ipsters thanks to the way it reduces fine lines and wrinkles to turn back the clock on the aging process. The combination of traditional retinoids and botanical retinol alternatives deliver noticeable results that are suitable for even sensitive skin.

“Man I'm definitely gonna have to show multiple forms of ID when I go out now... this is awesome,” says one Ipster. “I can see a difference in my forehead wrinkles after very little use,” says another. This powerhouse serum is so popular it garnered an average 4.64 out of 5 hearts.

It takes the outer layer of skin off and my face is moisturized and smooth! I use it two times a week and my overall skin appearance has greatly improved,” they say. Ipster ddaley97 agrees. “10+ This is a miracle in a bottle and a new holy grail product for me. It literally changed my skin in days! I wish I had found this product years ago.” Visible results and a younger-looking complexion is why this anti-aging treatment scored an average 4.83 out of 5 hearts.

The Glam Bag Plus Runners-Up:
