Expect Good Things from Good Things....!

A few weeks ago, I was wandering down the supermarket aisles looking for inspiration.  As usual, I popped into the beauty section to pick up a few things.  I'm always on the lookout for new products that can help me with certain things; in particular I have quite an oily t-zone and so I'm still on the hunt for the perfect product(s) that will help me keep my foundation on and matte, not disappearing and all shiny! 

I'd just run out of my moisturiser which I must admit I have never used religiously! So many moisturisers alter the balance of your skin, and can easily make you more oily! I took a quick glance at the moisturisers on offer in my local supermarket, and something immediately caught my eye.....the gorgeous packaging of Good Things.  Their designs are simple but absolutely beautiful and elegant.  I scanned the shelf and not only saw that they had 1/3 off the price but there was one called "Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser". I didn't need much convincing to try it, but the back of the box made me instantly drop it into my basket:

"Even if your skin is oily, it needs moisture to keep it soft and healthy.  Miracle Mattifier with blackcurrant and goji berry superfruits pulls off a clever balancing act.  It is quickly absorbed and gives your skin plenty of hydration whilst helping to absorb any excess oil, so your skin stays smooth and matte and is less prone to breakouts"

In addition, this product is free from parabens, mineral oils, sodium laureth sulphate and animal ingredients - just full of good things for super skin!

The first thing I noticed about this product when I used it was the smell - SIMPLY WOW!  It's clearly packed with superfruits and boy do they smell incredible! A great purchase just for the smell alone! The cream itself looks thick and rich, and it is absorbed quickly!

I have been using this religiously for a couple of weeks now, usually both in the morning and before bed! Has it made a difference? Yes - my skin looks healthier, it's more even and really soft! It is more matte and gets less oily throughout the hasn't eliminated it completely but certainly has made a big difference!

A lot of people think if you have oily skin, you should avoid any sort of artificial products.  Good Things set us right:

"Oily skin needs careful treatment to clear away excess sebum without stripping it of moisture. You might think that the first thing you need to do with oily skin is 'dry it out' but if you strip the skin too effectively of all its oil, it tries to rebalance itself by producing even more oil to make up for what it has lost. And because oil and water are two different things, you can end up with oily, yet dehydrated, skin. Which is why even oily skin needs a light moisturiser."

You can take a look at the range of products at the Good Things Website - Good Things Skincare was developed by award-winning beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis using her years of experience in the beauty industry.  This skincare range is designed to make the most of young skin.  Whether you're looking for skincare or bodycare - check out Good Things and it really is fine to expect good things....!
