There’s something about Glossier that makes it almost unavoidable for millennials. Try as you might, the brand is hard to resist. Is it the pastel pink packaging? Perhaps. Or the skin first, makeup second philosophy? Could be. We don’t have the answers but what do know is that if there was a Glossier cult (hey, Emily Weiss – is there a cult?), we’d join it. In a heartbeat.
At present, Glossier isn’t available in Australia. And with an international travel ban in place, it doesn’t look like we’ll be heading to any of Glossier’s New York, LA, London or Atlanta stores soon. The good news, however, is that there are plenty of same-same-but-different Glossier dupes available in Australia. Here, we round up a few of the best:
The product: Glossier Solution
The dupe: Mecca Glow-Giver Exfoliating Solution ($40 at Mecca)
Why they’re similar: Both contain a mix of AHAs, BHAs and PHAs to exfoliate skin by gently dissolving skin cells.

The dupe: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser ($12.99 at Chemist Warehouse)
Why they’re similar: Both are hydrating, creamy cleansers that clean skin and remove grime without disrupting its delicate pH balance.

Why they’re similar: Not your average perfume(s) by any means, both of these fragrances interact with skin for a bespoke effect – meaning, the scent is slightly different on each wearer.
