If you’re anything like me and you love a free sample, you’ll often be keeping an eye out on Facebook and Twitter for your favourite brands giving away small samples of their popular products. Recent sample giveaways have included the Burberry Body fragrance, numerous Olay products and this little beauty here – the Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser:
The product, packed with superfruit extracts such as blackcurrant & goji berry, claims to ‘moisturise and mattify skin prone to breakouts’. I have to admit that recently, my skin has been a lot better than normal – I’m putting that down to the pregnancy hormones- but I was interested to see what this product would be like.
Good Things pride themselves on being exactly what they say – full of good things. All their products are free from cosmetic nasties such as parabens, sodium laureth sulphate, animal products and mineral oils. They consistently use natural products, such as the superfruits above, to give us a great cosmetic product without the guilt.
Also, they package their products so beautifully – it is a wonder how anyone can resist owning a Good Things product! Just look at the sample above – simple but eyecatching, and absolutely stunning. The packaging is what catches people eyes first, so products need to be aesthetically pleasing – and I think Good Things have got it spot on!
The moisturiser itself is white in colour, a little creamy but not too thick – but what attacks your senses first is not the look of the moisturiser itself but the smell – you can definitely smell the superfruits that are within the product. Although the fragrance is what hits you first, it isn’t overpowering which is great in a product, because who wants to be overpowered by the smell?
Application is easy, the product sinks in swiftly, leaving skin feeling refreshed – and the stomach almost hungry at the gorgeous smell of the superfruits! Whereas some mositurisers or creams can leave skin feeling greasy or oily, this particular moisturiser instead leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth – and although I am not as prone to breakouts right now, due to pregnancy, I haven’t noticed a single blemish or spot on my skin – this product definitely does what it says!
Have you ever tried the Good Things range? How did you find them?
I received this product as a free sample from the Good Things facebook page – however, although this was a free sample, all thoughts expressed in this review are entirely my own.
