Good Things Skincare

Recently I keep hearing about a range of skincare from a brand called Good Things. Curious, I wanted to try some products for myself and bring you a review, and as it was on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots it was the perfect opportunity.

My local Boots doesn’t have a very large range and some things were out of stock so I settled on products from the Superfruits range and chose Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser, Face The Day Moisturiser, and Instant Dark Circles Concealer.

Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser (RRP £4.99 150ml) – This fruity cleanser is very gentle and doesn’t strip the skin, yet is very cleansing. The directions advise to gently massage in for one minute which I did. I enjoyed the scent and the texture, and it certainly felt like it lived up to its name as my skin felt thoroughly clean.

Face The Day Moisturiser (RRP £7.99 100ml) – I actually wanted the Mattifying Moisturiser which is recommended on the reverse of the cleanser but it wasn’t available. This sounded great though as I like a moisturiser with sun protection and this has SPF15. I was slightly worried it would be too greasy or rich for my oily skin but on the contrary it was lightweight and pleasantly refreshing. It absorbed to leave quite a matte finish and my skin definitely felt hydrated and looked plumper. I love the fresh, fruity scent.

Instant Dark Circles Concealer (RRP £5.99 15ml) – This moisturising concealer comes in tube with a rollerball applicator. The metal ball is very cooling, which helps if you are prone to a puffy, congested eye area. With my hayfever I love rollerball eye creams as they provide instant relief. The concealer is very hydrating and the coverage is light. Unlike some undereye concealers this doesn’t look chalky or gather in fine lines. I found that the rollerball didn’t deposit a lot of product so I had to go over the eye area quite a few times, but I do like the formula and results. If you prefer a heavier coverage however then I’d suggest a seperate concealer.

Good Things was developed by British beauty journalist and author of two teen beauty books, Alice Hart-Davis, who wanted to design a simple, affordable, effective skincare with superfruit beauty boosters, that helped to make the most of young skin. The entire range is SLS, Paraben and Mineral Oil free and also free from animal products, which is great news for vegans, vegetarians or anyone who simply wants to avoid the use of animal derived products in cosmetics!

I’m super impressed with this great value range and I really want to try their Manuka Honey products next, if I can find them locally, as the ingredients sound divine!

You can pick Good Things up at Boots and Sainsburys. Have you tried the range? If so what are your favourite products from it?

      Followed 🙂 I have oily skin but I hate ranges that feel astringent and feel like they’re stripping your skin. These feel really gentle though.
