I had just finished my usual face mask and whilst perusing the aisle looking for something else to try, I was drawn to Good Things by its white packaging and simple, attractive design.
I like the fact that it is free from parabens, SLS, mineral oils and animal products (making it suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans). Although it is marketed at young skin (from their website I believe that to be under 25 years old), one of my favourite masks is also marketed for young skin, so I thought I would give it a whirl.
This is a mask that takes just 5 minutes to work, excellent for busy mums like me who simply don't often get time to sit down 15 minutes for a treatment. It is green and very smooth - I found it easy to apply and obtain even coverage and see where it has been applied. For me, the thing that makes it really special is its scent - it is so fruity!
Described as being designed to make your skin clearer, brighter and smoother. Ingredients include green clay and kaolin to draw out impurities, avocado oil to moisturise, goji berry extract to soothe and willow bark extract for radiance.I tested this out when my skin was in need of a real boost, it looked dull and had visible pores.
I followed the directions for use - After cleansing, smooth on a thin layer of product, avoiding the delicate skin around the eyes. Relax for five minutes while the mask dries, then splash with warm water and rinse off . Use weekly.
I was pleased with the results. The mask dried perfectly in the 5 minutes I had allocated. My pores were clean, my skin was left soft and I looked revived, just what I was looking for in a face mask. I would repurchase this.
