With my wedding around the corner I have been trying a number of different products to try and get my skin looking perfect. Oil's, Serums, exfoliaters, you name it and I am trying it. This week I am talking you through a great skincare brand called Go-To
, created by ex beauty editoir Zoe Foster Blake this Australian skin care brand is designed to be natural, cruelty free and kind to skin. This brand has been promoted in Vogue, Harpers Bazzar, Cosmopolitan, and Elle and it seems they all like it as much as me. On top of being a huge fan of the pretty packaging and the approachable joke-y write ups there is a lot of positives with this brand. Read below my run through of the products
1. Properly Clean - Foaming Cleanser
Unlike most foam cleansers this left my skin feeling soft rather than tight, with products such as Willow Bark Extract (a natural forming salicylic acid) helping to cleanse you are left with a smooth yet clean and hydrated skin. Was it the best foam cleanser I have used, not really but it certainly is better than the majority of drugstore products I have tried.
2. Very Useful Face Cream
Aside of the fact that it smells great, this moistiuriser is really light for an application in the morning and does the trick in terms of providing a light weight UV protecting, free radical bashing product. Ingredients include 'Water, shea butter, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, amla berry extract, cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate, avocado oil, sunflower oil, mango butter, beeswax, coenzyme Q10, dehydroacetic acid, benzyl alcohol, natural fragrance (fig and oriental rose).' The alma berry being the star of the show in this moisturiser as it contains 30x more antioxidants than oranges. I have been using just in the morning with my other skincare products and found it a real life saver on holiday when my skin was exposed to the sun.
This was slathered all over me when I returned from my holiday in Portugal and it legitimately saved me from peeling like an orange from my dry sun burnt skin. It smells amazing, it feels amazing and it really works. Containing 'Monoi de tahiti 50% (coconut oil, gardenia tahitensis flower extract, mixed tocopherol), sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, jojoba butter, mango butter, beeswax, shea butter' and much more its all natural and really is as exceptional as they say.
4. Exfoliating Swipeys
These are similar to the Pixi wipes except that they smell much nicer. I'm not sure I am 100% sold on these compared to the Pixi wipes (that contain a higher percentage of acid in the pads) but again for a skincare which contains entirely natural products it does still make my skin feel and look good.
This lip balm is now virtually empty after my continuous use of this product and boy are my lips thankful for it. It was so good for my flight to the US where usually my lips take a bashing with the dry air. Again made with lots of delicious natural oils it keeps them soft and supple and also provides a lovely natural shine.
6. Face Hero
Much like the exceptional oil the great smell is certainly a pro of the product. Using only in the evenings underneath a moisturiser I am honestly impressed with how plump my skin feels the following morning after using this product. Is it a hero product? I would say for its price range it really is.
All in all I would give top marks for this range of skincare, and I will continue to use this up until the wedding. Do you have any recommendations for me to try? If so leave me a comment below!
