Good Things Skincare

About Good Things

Good Things is range of simple, affordable, effective skincare products with superfruit beauty boosters, developed by award-winning beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis, specifically aimed at young skin. All the products are free of SLS (sodium laureth sulphate), parabens, mineral oils and animal ingredients (vegetarian and vegan friendly).

Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser

I've been using this cleanser every morning in the shower. It does a wonderful job of getting my skin lovely and clean, without drying in out (which my previous cleanser was doing). The grape and pomegranate extracts contain lots of antioxidants, which are great for your skin, and smell divine. Like all Good Things products, it doesn't contain SLS, which is what gives the beautiful foam in most products (but is very drying), so this cleanser doesn't foam up at all. Instead, you massage it into your skin for a minute (lots of circulation-boosting massage!) before removing it with a warm, damp facecloth.

Total Wipe Out Cleansing Wipes

I will admit that I fairly regularly commit one of the biggest skincare sins ever: going to sleep without taking my makeup off/washing my face. In a nutshell, I'm incredibly lazy. Which is why I absolutely love cleansing wipes. However, the main problems I had were (a) many of the brands I tried dried and tightened my skin and (b) were very expensive per wipe. This offering by Good Things counters both of those problems. They cleanse gently, but still remove all of my makeup (including my eye makeup) and don't dry out my skin (if I'm very lazy, I don't even moisturize afterwards). A major bonus is that these wipes are also biodegradable: which most aren't. And, like all Good Things products, they smell divine!

Miracle Mattifier Moisturizer

This is a fantastic moisturizer if you have oily or combination skin. It is a light cream that absorbs really quickly into your skin. (I normally pat my skin with a tissue after I apply moisturizer to remove any excess product, and with this, that tissue was bone dry.) This product provided my combination skin with enough moisture to satisfy the dry patches, without leaving behind a greasy or oily finish. Instead, your skin has a lovely matte finish that minimizes the appearance of pores. I haven't tested this yet in really hot weather, but with our springtime sunshine (basically warmer than a UK summer), I haven't needed to apply mattifying powder over my foundation when using this moisturizer. The fruit extracts also give this moisturizer a wonderful, natural fragrance. 

My overall opinion

I'm very impressed with Good Things skincare products. They have worked wonderfully on my skin, and are very easy on my student budget! As a result of their fabulous superfruit ingredients, they all smell fantastic. I will definitely be trying more of their products and repurchasing the ones that I've reviewed.

Good Things products are available at Clicks stores.
