{The Powder Room} Good Things Review

Sometime ago, I came across a beauty company that I had never tried before called Good Things. I soon realised that I passed by their products numerous times, so since this set of products was on offer, I decided to give them a whirl!

 

The Good Things Facial Skincare has been developed by Award winning Beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis using her years of expertise in the Beauty Industry. The Good Things range uses superfruit beauty boosters in gentle super-effective formulations. I love that these products are free from nasties like parabens, mineral oils, sodium laureth, sulphates, animal ingredients and just filled with GOOD THINGS!! Each of the products I bought has different berry extracts like, Grape & Pomegranate for the cleanser, Papaya & Acai for the spot clearing gel & Blackcurrant and Goji Berry for the moisturiser - all of these smelled marvellous, so real, light and fresh & I had to remember not to eat them *wink* They just left a very faint aroma to the skin that faded after a while, I found it quite pleasant really. All my thoughts after the jump!! 

P.s. this is not a sponsored post. I bought these with my own money. All opinions are strictly my own.



I don't usually use a creamy cleanser as they've not always worked well for me, but this is quite nice, it's thick but not too thick. Moves well over the skin, nice and cooling really. I use it with or without make-up and it really does get all the make-up off for me, even took off my eye make-up as I had forgotten to use my eye make-up remover the first time, but it had taken it off. I used it as the directions said with a wrung out warm flannel and it worked a treat.

Comes in a small tube, which one might think is not enough, but really you only need a tiny amount wherever there's a breakout. It's quite gentle and didn't dry out my skin or give any irritations to me. But, I found it was strong enough to show a difference the next morning.

Now, I've tried 'Mattifying' Moisturisers before and they've never lasted well with me as I've found them to be too mattifying and my skin was left so dry that it became irritated, but this didn't happen here. My skin tends to go more oily when the spring/summer comes, so I always need to change products. What I loved about this cream is that while it kept my skin from feeling too oily, it didn't dry it out or strip my skin of all it's natural oils. I thought surely through the day it would start to feel dry, but not at all, so soft and lovely. 

Overall I've enjoyed using these products, not only are they filled with great things but actually worked for my skin. Good Things have a wide array of items that I plan on trying next, like their Manuka Honey range. The products are only available at the moment from Boots, Tesco and Sainsbury's here in the UK, but I'm sure any friends able to get their hands on them, would be so kind to send you some until they reach other shores ;) 

I would buy these again and like I said, try other products from the brand as well. It's great to see more brands with products that steer clear of the bad ingredients, while at the same time keeping them so affordable too. Which I love as everyone, no matter what budget should have access to great skin care.

My rating: Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5

  7. Ooh these sound like a great find. All the scents sound absolutely lush and a spot reducer? A tick in my books. I haven't found a cleanser yet that will take off all my eye make up, so this sounds pretty impressive. One cleanser without any faffing around with eye make up removers and lip make up removers? Wow. X

  11. Recently I've been thinking of changing up my skin care routine. This reminds me that I need to start looking for something that will work for me or slowly ease into new products. I have to preorder in bulk because I'm preparing to be gone for a long time. -Jess L

  29. Thank you for all your comments in the month of May when I was too busy to reply and visit blogs. I'm catching up on your posts now esp since I also receive the updates on my gmail.

    Good Things sure sound like they only contain good stuff in their products and nothing else. I like how they are free from all the mineral oil and paraben nasties. Most beauty products are full of them that it is quite unavoidable. As long as I know a brand that is eco friendly, I would try them and at the same time feel happy that I'm not applying nasties or harming the environment or animals but sometimes it is just so difficult to avoid.

  30. I'm always on the look for products packed with good ingredients, as I realised silicones and parabens alter my skin's nature. Thank you for this lovely review, it was a treat to read!
