Good Things Skincare Hamper

Quite a few months back I won the complete Good Things range and boy, have I been converted. At the moment my skin is a hormonal nightmare due to my contraceptive implant, which I find myself fighting with myself about, babies or spots? Spots win. My chin is like a game of Battleships, clear, clear, clear, BOOM! 

Good Things are an affordable skincare range made from superfruits, each product with its own individual blend and scent. This range is available from Sainsbury's, Tesco and Boots.

My daily staples now include the Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion and Face The Day SPF15 Moisturiser, these leave my skin feeling and looking amazing. The amount of gunk The Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion removes is incredible. As a woman in my mid-late 20s, I've realised I need to set in motion a skincare routine now, that protects against the elements in the battle against aging! I quit smoking after 11 years, drink more water and make healthy eating choices, aside from that I have added SPF moisturisers to my arsenal in the war against sun damage. 

For make-up removal, I find that the Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser is amazing, you rub onto dry skin and massage in a circular motion for a minute, then wipe away with a hot, damp flannel. So not only are you cleansing, you're also getting a mini facial at the same time. It really breaks down even the toughest mascara stains from an emotional release.

When my skin breaks out my go to is the Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser to breakdown all the nasty oils my skin loves to deposit on my face. You instantly notice the difference, I follow this by using Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser to ensure all that nasty grease is neutralised, after all nobody wants to look like they live in Beale's Plaice. I then seal the spots that have managed to take up residence with Stop That Spot Clearing Gel, I am yet to be convinced if these spot products do actually work, but at least I feel like I'm doing something!

Sunday nights are all about pampering, to give my body the love it needs after enduring the mean streets of London. I give myself a deep clean with Deep Clean Blackhead Exfoliatior to scrub clean any evidence of London transport and end the night on Five Minute Facial Face Mask an amazing little face mask that leaves me ready to face the week again!

One thing I really need to get in the swing of using is eye cream, something that 50 year old me will be kicking herself about, but when I do pull my finger out Bright Eyes Eye Cream is there to save the day! The most minuscule amount really does the trick.

Total Wipe Out Cleansing Wipes are HUGE and really get off everything! I'm not a make-up wipes fan in all fairness, usually they set my face on fire but these really are a fantastic addition to any skincare regime.

The only product out of the range that wasn't for me was the Blemish Control Gel Mask, although after letting friends try it, I've heard wonderful things about it.

The miracle product from these guys definitely has to be Instant Dark Circles Concealer, which is sitting proudly in my daily make up bag. I would go fresh faced everywhere if it weren't for the bags under my eyes that scream 'rough night' to everyone in the world. When I say rough night, I mean binge watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Netflix. This little beauty is amazing in the sense that its coverage is strong enough to completely hide the circles of doom but light enough to not need to be blended in resulting an awake looking natural you! Amazing.

So there you go, all in all, I only have good things to say about Good Things (get it? Good things about Good Things? Oh forget it.)
