* I received this item free, from Influenster and Goop Beauty in exchange for my honest review .
Influenster vox box time ! This time it’s a facial lotion from Goop beauty. Yes I know the Gwyneth Paltrow brand . I’ll be honest I really have stayed away from Goop for the most part as she’s had some pretty peculiar beauty advice that ranges from odd to just not very good . Anyone remember the Jade eggs, steaming certain parts of your anatomy and getting
stung by bees alot . Here’s some articles for light reading.
And finally the actual product:
So the packaging is nice ,the bottle itself is made of clay. And it’s definitely got a weight to it . The bottle has a pump very similar to the Nyx Marshmallow Primer , and it’s fairly easy to use and not messy . Sadly the lotion itself , is very heavily scented , strong citrus notes , and like a strange cigarette like undertone . I know there’s no nicotine in the lotion , but it’s a very harsh smell . And that’s coming from someone who loves citrus fruits . I did use this lotion for about a week on my face during the night . I decided night was best since sometimes having tons of citrus oil on your skin during the day can make your skin sensitive . So this was my night only moisturizer , and well , it just say in my face and my skin would not absorb it . Like it was just oily and gross .
Yeah this product really didn’t work for me at all . I was a little surprised , this lotion has a lot going on inside it . Squalane derived from sugarcane ,Spirulina Extract ,
tons of vitamin C ( from citrus oils) , Kakadu plum ( also vitamin C ). But it still didn’t work for me , my skin broke out a bit , and it was just oily . No glow for me just oil and breakouts .
So I stopped using Goop Glow , and swapped to another moisturizer . Thankfully my face is getting back to normal , and I may give this to someone else to try , but I can’t really recommend this product . It’s very strong smelling and quite oily . The product seems to just sit on my skin rather than being absorbed and the full size lotion is $58 . I do think there are better options for moisturizer , high end Laniege and Drunk Elephant to name a few . But there’s definitely better options out there. Well let me know what you think about this lotion and if you have any questions.
