This is not a sponsored post…I ponied up the cold hard cash for all the products myself but wanted to share how things were going with it….3 weeks in.
You’ll remember a few weeks ago now I said that I was going to try out Zoe’s skincare range (Go-To) as I was officially getting old, the supermarket moisturiser I had been using since I was 13 was no longer cutting it, I had a bad case of perioral dermatitis and was generally looking 73 years older than I should be.
So 3 weeks ago I had a delivery of products arrived and I was determined to try and see if I could turn my skin around. I had heard amazing things about these products, namely that they were an Australian skin care company, it’s no fuss good stuff made with natural and cruelty free products. Plus I just kind of wanted to look like Zoe. A bridge too far perhaps?!
Here’s what I got:
Very Useful Face Cream $41
Super Balm Lips $15
Face Hero face oil $45
Properly Clean foaming cleanser $31
Exfoliating Swipeys $46
I got them all bundled together in this pack called THE LOT for $244. Yep, I was going to take this seriously. It’s about bloody time!
So every day morning and every night I have been washing with the foam cleanser, smothering my face in the oil (following instructions of course) and using the useful face cream. I’ve been giving the lips a good balm whenever I remember and using the exfoliating swiper things about twice a week (as recommended) and especially when I have been wearing make up.
There have been some nights when I have fallen asleep on the couch (I blame blankets and winter and wine and having a baby) so they were skipped. But I have been trying REALLY hard to be good. Because I paid cold hard cash and SOMETHING had to give with my rotten skin.
I am loving myself sick. Well sort of.
You see I have my period. There’s a full moon. I’ve just turned 39. I have 3 kids, one of which is still a baby. It’s the end of winter so I am a bit chubby and it’s so cold here and everything is DRY. My perioral dermatitis has flared up again (I had a facial last week which I probably shouldn’t have and I have to suck it up and see my GP and get antibiotics for it once and for all) so I’m pretty much looking a bit shit.
If it wasn’t for all that stuff I tell you what? I would be GLOWING. My skin (except for the PD around my mouth and nose) is the best it has EVER been. It’s soft and do I believe my sister even used the word SUPPLE. There’s something I haven’t heard for a VERY long time. Like 38 years. It just feels healthy. It looks good and I can happily spend the day without any make up on because it just looks so much better and not dry.
I have heard that it takes a few weeks to adjust to a new skin regime. I threw in a facial into the mix of it, plus this god awful PD. But if I didn’t have those things going for me I would be officially loving myself sick. Fully.
No filter. No nothing. Just old age and tiredness and 3 daughters.
And once I get those antibiotics that helped last time I am hoping that soon enough I will feel even better and more confident. There’s nothing like bad skin to make you feel self conscious and shithouse.
I’ll report back in another 3 weeks and see how it’s going. In any case I feel like a grown up having matching skin products AND a little procedure that I follow every day. PLUS once the skin is clean and I whack on a Snapchat filter I look practically 37. It’s awesome.
Do any of you guys use these products?
How do you find it?
Anyone else suffering from this GOD AWFUL PD? I am SO over it. Make it STOP. No wonder I keep eating baked goods.
