It's a common joke that Glossier is the "pretty people" brand; the people who wear it religiously don't need that much help in the beauty department. That said, there are plenty of Glossier products that help us feel like our best selves: Cloud Paint, Stretch Concealer, and the iconic Boy Brow. But it seems like we may be adding another one to our list: Zit Stick ($14).
Zit Stick launches Thursday, Sept. 6, and it may be the solution — er, another Solution — to clear, bump-free skin. Glossier is referring to this launch as a "blemish eraser," which feels on brand given the packaging is reminiscent of a dry erase marker. It includes a stainless steel applicator, which is antimicrobial, as well as a clear gel that's formulated with acne-fighting salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide to treat the blemish, plus hydrating niacinamide and glycerin to keep the blemish from flaking.
If you're no stranger to breakouts, you've probably tested the gamut in blemish-fighting products. There's the sulfur and calamine treatments that you dip a cotton swap in; there are serums that help with cysts; and there are the white creams you apply with your fingers. Zit Stick keeps application sanitary — no fingers! — and because it's clear, you can treat your blemish under makeup or throughout the day without leaving a trace. The brand says the product can be applied three times throughout the day and says it can help minimize blemishes within three hours.
