Good Things Face The Day Moisturiser SPF15 - Review
I came across Good Things skincare when I was looking for a new face mask and purchased the 5 minute facial mask, the review of which you can read here. As I mentioned then, the range is designed for young skin so not technically for me..!
However, I was recently sent the new Face The Day Moisturiser SPF15 and before I got a chance to give it to someone more suitable to try, found I had run short of my own moisturiser and thought there was no harm in giving it a go.
Face The Day Moisturiser SPF15 contains superfruit extracts, Goji Berry and Papaya.
Good Things say
This light, hydrating lotion is easily absorbed and has SPF 15 to help protect the skin from damaging UVB rays. Anti-oxidant goji berry extract helps to soothe skin while papaya improves skin radiance.
I like the young, fresh looking designed packaging. It looks great in the bathroom and the flip top lid makes it easy to dispense.
The product is seriously berry fruity scented, I found this a little off putting at first and whilst I liked it for my face mask wasn't sure I was going to like it as a facial moisturiser. It doesn't last which for me personally is a good thing!
The moisturiser is of a runny lotion consistency which can mean that sometimes I have a tendency to squeeze out a little too much for my needs. Once applied it dries quickly but it does feel sticky and tightens my face as it dries. Just 5-10 mins later and the sticky feeling disappears and I am left with super soft feeling skin which remains all day.
This is a really nice budget moisturiser which leaves my skin feeling super soft and hydrated until my night cream and it has the bonus of having an SPF15. It comes in a generous 100ml tube which will last a decent amount of time.
If you are looking for a budget moisturiser with no nasties, this is definitely worth taking a look at.
The Good Things range is free from parabens, sodium laureth sulphate and mineral oil.
Good Things Face The Day Moisturiser SPF15 costs £7.99 for 100ml
