I am so in love with Go-To Skincare! I've only heard about Go-To very recently (thanks Robyn!) and decided to give it a go after some of my existing skin care products have run out. I must admit, it was the colour and design of the product that really got me hooked at the start. Then the clever branding, the bad jokes, the cutest packaging, the amazing ingredients used in the products, and the results that I've seen on my skin.
When I first received the parcel, I was blown away by the packaging. Beautiful box, tissue paper, bubble wrap, and even a fortune cookie that said 'You will take a photo of this and post it on Instagram.' And guess what, I did. I absolutely love the clever description and the fun names of each product in the range.
First things first, I have quite oily and acne prone skin (mainly during shark week). I also have some acne scarring on my cheeks. It has been 2 weeks since I first started using the Go-To range and it has been great! I have noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin and a few dark spots/scars lighten significantly.
I ordered the 'Misbehaving Skin' bundle which includes Properly Clean (foam cleanser), Face Hero (face oil) and Exfoliating Swipeys (exfoliating wipes). While Properly Clean is a great product, it's not a life changing cleanser. The other two products are the real stand outs and are (in my opinion) great alternatives for some really high end products I've tried in the past.
Exfoliating Swipeys is a great dupe for the Dr Dennis Gross' Alpha Beta Face Peel. It is a butt load cheaper and gave me results that were just as good. It is also a lot more gentle on my skin and contains no nasties! This promises glowing skin and it delivers. I also highly recommend the DDG peel pads if the Go-To ones didn't really work out for you. Bit steep price wise but it'll be worth it.
Face Hero is a great dupe for the Sunday Riley's Artemis face oil. Again, it is a whole lot (like, a lot) cheaper and gave me results that were just as good. It is very lightweight but also super hydrating. I always wake up with amazing looking skin when I use Face Hero! I tend to avoid in the mornings because of my already oily skin.
I absolutely love the Sunday Riley range of face oils but they cost an arm and a leg. I get moments where I decide I will finally purchase a bottle, but usually I end up popping into Mecca and grabbing a sample instead. A slightly cheaper alternative is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Serum. This I have tried and loved for a long time. Face oils come in tiny little bottles but they go a long way since you only need 2-3 drops for your entire face.
I hope this little review will come in handy for someone. It's been fun photographing and writing again! We've had Internet issues for the past month and so I haven't been able to upload anything. Fingers crossed Optus gets our home Internet sorted soon so I can get more content up regularly (yaaay)!
