I looked at reviews and blog posts for face oils searching for an alternative to rosehip oil that might bring my face back to life. In my search, Go-To Skincare's Face Hero popped up, given Go-To is all natural, australian owned (and made in NZ), cruelty free and a little quirky (all the things I liked about MooGoo) wrapped up in chic peach packaging, I decided to give Go-To Skincare a shot. Three months on and I'm now converted, so with my second order placed I thought I would share my thoughts.
Go-To skincare was founded by Zoe Foster Blake (who needs no introduction) and her personality and quirkiness really comes through in everything from the website, order process and packaging. It definitely adds to the experience and puts a smile on my face. Rather than re-hash any of the cute product descriptions you can go visit yourself --> http://www.gotoskincare.com/

I'm very fussy about my lip balms and then I tend to stick with one once I'm happy. I've been using MooGoo Tingling Lip Balm for years and though I tried others (like BabyLips etc.) nothing really did it for me. Now I still have my qualms about this one, sometimes I find it has a smell I don't like but it is definitely long lasting. It can go on a bit grainy until you warm it up a bit, but I actually enjoy that, I feel like I'm getting a quick lip ex-foliation in as I apply.
I love the FaceHero, it's definitely doing more for my skin than just rosehip oil was, it seems to absorb better and doesn't need the addition of moisturiser to keep it in place. You can use it on its own or by mixing a few drops in with moisturiser, I've been quite generous with it, usually adding a few drops to moisturiser both morning and night (well it is winter!).
The Very Useful Face Cream I was sceptical about, I love my MooGoo Anti-Ageing Face Cream but I gave it a shot. Looking at the package I was also worried about how much I'd actually get out of it, it looks so small! Turns out it's a very thick cream, you only need a 1cm snake of it (particularly if mixed with FaceHero) and I managed to get 12 weeks out of it. My skin has been soft and moisturised and I haven't had any breakouts etc.
|Almost time to move on from this one|
|This is the cute post card|
I'm excited about taking these products overseas and that they will fit in my carry-on clip seal bag. The compact size will also mean I don't have to have bulky products with me on the trip and it will last the whole way through (only gone for 6 weeks).
Am I done with MooGoo? No, not yet. I still love their Skin Milk Udder Cream and don't think I could do without it (that said, I haven't used the ExceptionOil yet...). I tend to by MooGoo products from the chemist these days rather than online so I will still be inclined to restock that way from time to time. Besides, there's plenty of room in my bathroom for them all to get along nicely.
Final thoughts - definitely loving it. At first I thought it seemed a bit expensive for tiny tubes but they last long enough and I'm happy. My skin is happy too.
