Go-To Skincare was created by the unbelievably funny, cool and gorgeous Zoe Foster-Blake to make our lives easier when it comes to skincare. This post is honestly so long overdue – I have well and truly used up all but one of the products I will be reviewing.
Go-To is an Australian brand that doesn’t test on animals and uses only pure and natural, yet powerful ingredients.
I adore the beautiful peach packaging and witty slogans written on the tubes. I highly recommend you check out their website because it is so funny!
This range consists of a cleanser, exfoliating wipes, a facial moisturizer, a body oil, and a lip balm (and very soon a facial oil!) At the time I placed my order, I purchased all of the products apart from the exfoliating wipes. Last night I actually ordered the exfoliating wipes and the facial oil as I was lucky enough to have access to the pre-sale because I am a Goconut, woo hoo! (P.S. A Goconut is a Go-To member).
Anyway, onto the reviewing!
- Properly Clean Cleanser
Holy moly, the scent of this foaming cleanser is to die for. It smells fresh and citrus-y, yet sweet at the same time. I normally dislike citrus scents, however I couldn’t get enough of this scent. I would literally stand in the shower smelling the foam on my hand for about a minute before I used it because it smells that good – I know, what a waste of water. Like the name suggests, your skin feels properly cleansed after using it and the best part is your skin feels balanced. Not too dry, but not too oily and residue-y. It contains Willow Bark Extract, which is kind of like salicylic acid but it is a lot gentler on the skin. This cleanser helped to clear my skin which was great because my acne was terrible at the time I used this (which was only a couple of months ago).
- Very Useful Face Cream
This was a standout product in the range for me. I loved the way it felt on my skin. My skin was super hydrated and it didn’t break me out at all. My make up applied smoothly over this moisturizer and it helped to make my skin glow. I could not get enough of this moisturizer and I thought an Angel sent it to me… Until one tragic day. One sad morning after I had cleansed my face and spritzed on my face mist I reached for my Very Useful Face Cream. I unscrewed the lid and squeezed out some of the product to find it had separated (insert me crying). The oils had started to separate from the cream and so whenever I would squeeze some product out big blobs of oil would follow. This made me so sad because I honestly loved this product! I am sure I was just unlucky because I haven’t heard this happen to anyone else. Luckily for me this product was just about empty so I just applied it to my décolletage.
Ahh, Exceptionoil. This again, smells like heaven. It is a much different scent to the cleanser – a lot milder I would say. It contains 100% natural oils, in particular Monoi de Tahiti. It smells quite flowery and tropical and is the perfect summer scent. I have super duper dry skin on my body and this bad boy fixed that right up. It got rid of all those dry cracks on my legs and kept my skin so soft, subtle and hydrated. I loved this product so much, however I didn’t repurchase it straight away only because I used it up quite quickly and it is expensive to repurchase every three weeks (because that’s how long it took me to use it all up). However, as the colder months approach I will definitely repurchase it and most likely continue to do so over winter!
This lip balm is utter perfection. It contains so many quality ingredients like ultra medical grade lanolin, avocado, jojoba oil, evening primrose, shea butter and vitamin E. I also have really dry lips (ugh, I can’t win), and this product actually helps to combat it rather than make them ever drier. Which can happen with some lip balms. This product smells quite similar to the cleanser, so you will often find me sitting there smelling it. The texture isn’t as ‘thick’ as I imagined. I do prefer thicker lip balms, however I really do love this one. I am just about out of it, so I am going to have to order another one. Come to think of it, I really should have done that when I placed my order last night (how stupid am I).
I really love Go-To Skincare and it is a brand that I will keep repurchasing. Not only are the Go-To products amazing, but the company is also wonderful. They often post funny little things on their Instagram page and they have been known to send their good customers cakes with their own faces on them! I don’t know about you but I would totally appreciate being sent a chocolate cake with my face on it.
Have a fantastic day!
