Glory Skincare is a WOC-owned business that sells products formulated without the “Toxic 20,” aka the 20 most questionable/harmful products commonly found in skincare (think parabens, phthalates, and even formaldehyde). They source their products from women and minority owned skincare brands, including new launches from established brands and lesser-known items from smaller businesses.
Promising review: “This is the lip mask and scrub combo I’ve been searching for. I used to have a great lip scrub that completely obliterated every particle of dead skin, but the brand stopped making it and I’ve been searching for an equally effective alternative ever since. Well, here it is! The Cocolippy scrub exfoliates like a dream and moisturizes with shea butter. It’s pretty much as effective as using steel wool on your mouth, but obviously way more gentle. Then you can follow up with the Cocobliss hydrating lip balm for an extra layer of moisture packed with vitamin E and shea butter. The scrub is rough enough to really get rid of dead skin, and the balm is satisfyingly thick and buttery smooth. My lips have never been happier.”—Rebecca O’Connell, BuzzFeed Staff
