Let's Talk Skincare - Good Things Range

Hi beauties,

Firstly a HUGE Happy New Year - I hope you all had a lovely evening celebrating! I'm very excited for 2013, and what a better way to kick off January than with a blog post!

For today's post I wanted to talk a little bit about skincare. As I LOVE using make up so much, I was on the look out for a range that focused on natural goodness. The Good Things range was developed by award-winning beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis, and is specially designed to make the most of young skin. Free from parabens, mineral oils, sodium laureate sulphate and animal ingredients, the range is packed full of super fruits for the skin. Lovely!

Available at Boots and Superdrug
Both reasonably priced, I purchased two items: the Face the Day Moisturiser (RRP £7.99) and the Bright Eyes Eye Cream (RRP £5.99).

Face the Day Moisturiser - Now I really love the smell of this, it's so fresh and fruity! The product application is great, and it's really quickly absorbed and feels light on the skin. I've tried moisturisers before that I've felt were too thick and heavy, but this one's just perfect.

The goodness bit - it contains anti-oxident goji berry extract which helps to soothe skin while papaya improves skin radiance.

Bright Eyes Eye Cream Anti Puffiness & Dark Circles - I've never used an eye cream before, but what with a busy job and lack of sleep I've noticed I'm definitely applying more and more concealer. So when I saw this alongside the moisturiser, I thought it would be good to see if I can address, or at least improve the problem. 

Bright Eyes has skin-calming raspberry and clarifying lychee. For full effectiveness I've been using this combination day and night. I think I'll need to persevere with this product before I can tell whether it makes a significant difference, but I love how hydrating they both are. 

I will definitely be checking out other products in their range! Has anyone else tried these?



  1. First off the packaging for these skin care products is so cute! I would be inclined to check them out just based on that! You'll have to do an updated post once you start to see differences under your eyes!
    I've never used a scented moisturizer before and the way you described this one sounds so nice!


  2. For moisturizers, I usually stick with Clinique or Shiseido products. They work wonders for my skin.

    Wishing you a wonderful beginning into the new year! *your newest follower via greader.

  3. The moisturiser sounds lovely!

  14. Great review! I've never tried anything from Good Things but the affordable skin care I love is Superfacialist. It's similarly priced and available at Boots! Just started following your lovely blog. xx


  15. Looks good, thanks for sharing!

  16. I've never heard of Good Things before, but I have been looking for something free from parabens, mineral oils etc as I have recently heard that they dry your skin out and make it worse! Thanks for sharing these, I will look out for them the next time I'm in boots or superdrug.

  17. I love their face wash! It smells so heavenly ^.^. I came across your blog whilst searching for a new eye cream. I'm 20, so evidently I don't have any wrinkles (yet) haha. I do however want to try to prevent them and I take very good care of my skin. Let me know if the eye-cream has done any justice yet!! Great post and blog by the way. Now following you :) Looking forward to reading more posts from you.

    Happy New Year!
