When I think back to my life ten years ago I can’t believe how much has changed. Not only did I get married and moved to Australia from the other side of the world, we also welcomed four (soon five) beautiful children into our family. I absolutely love our busy household and while our big family means I may not be able to splurge on luxury items for myself anymore I wouldn’t swap it for the world.
I love discovering budget-friendly alternatives for luxury products and today’s find is a real winner. If you are looking for gentle skincare that is good for your skin, the environment AND your (tight!) wallet you are sure to adore the new Goodness range.
The team at Goodness Natural Beauty Lab uses natural skin enhancers like avocado, coconut and chia oil, as well as other eco-treasures like honeysuckle extract, shea butter, blackberry extract and many more, and bottles it up for us to enjoy. The affordable range currently consists of 5 great products that cover all your skincare needs from the moment you wake up with the light and breathable Every Morning Moisturiser (RRP $16.95, 75ml) to cleaning up before bed with the fresh and tingly Every Day Cream Cleanser (RRP $16.95, 150ml).
My personal favourite is a wonderfully fragrant little jar called Every Evening Cream (RRP $19.95, 60ml), the consistency is perfect, it leaves my skin feeling soft when I wake up and the smell is to die for. I often find night creams too thick and suffocating so this a welcome change, I’ve even convinced hubby to add this slice of Goodness to his after-shower routine and that says a lot.
Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil (RRP $19.99, 20ml), also known as Goodness’ hero product, gives tired skin a welcome boost of healthy omega fatty acids without the expensive ‘certified organic’ price tag. Just a few drops of this easily absorbed silky oil deliver instant hydration and nourishment and the compact handbag size make it perfect for little refreshments throughout the day.
I generally avoid facial scrubs because I find them too harsh but like the rest of the Goodness range this wonderful Every Week Face Scrub (RRP $12.95, 50ml) is free from nasties like parabens, petrochemicals, PEGs, sulfates, silicons, harsh surfactants and other yucky ingredients so it is surprisingly gentle. Even my sensitive pregnancy skin, which seems to respond rather drastically to small changes at the moment, has given this new product the thumbs up!
You can find the Goodness range right now at all Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist and selected Woolworths stores across Australia and soon Priceline will be joining the Goodness revolution too.
