MooGoo Skincare

Let me introduce you to Australian skincare brand MooGoo who are dedicated to delivering all natural, gentle, sensitive skin friendly products. Their range uses all natural ingredients and contains absolutely no nasties or harsh chemicals. Their products are made for people with skin problems such as eczema and Psoriasis but are also a great choice for people that prefer to use products which are natural and won’t cause irritation.

For the past 2 months I have been testing out two products from their extensive range and they have been a real pleasure to have in my beauty stash. First up,

MooGoo Cover Up ButterCup SPF15 Natural Moisturiser*

This moisturiser has quite a thick consistency when you first squeeze it out but once you apply it to your face and massage it in, its very quickly absorbed. So don’t be put off by how heavy it initially seems. This is a daily moisturiser with physical sun protection – that consists of Clear Zinc and Red Raspberry Seed Oil which act like a hat or shade, a cream containing the Zinc Oxide reflects the UV rays away from the body rather than allowing them to penetrate and damage the skin.

Zinc Oxide would normally be white on the skin, but MooGoo use a special type of Zinc Oxide that is made in Australia,  it’s dispersed within Jojoba Oil which helps make it clear and non-greasy. So there is no white cast left on your skin, and it wears well under makeup.

You get a huge 200g of product in a tube & that is going to last me ages. I live in Cornwall and it’s just too beautiful to stay indoors, so I like to be outside as much as possible (on the beach) so It’s fantastic to have product in my skincare stash that not only protects from harmful UVB & UVA rays but also provides a good amount of hydration. This is an SPF that covers all the bases, its hydrating, all natural and is not tested on animals. It is also suitable for both babies & adults which just reflects how gentle the formula is!

MooGoo How Now Brown Cow Gradual Tanning Cream For Face & Body*

Who else feels the eternal struggle to find that gradual tanner which goes on like a dream & gives the perfect golden glow! It’s nice to hear I am not alone, but hold that thought because I think I have found a really really good one. My legs especially never seem to catch any colour and are very much on the pale side so I do like to gradual tan. I like that gradual tans allows me to build up to a natural healthy bronze shade without the fear of looking like a wotsit.

This MooGoo offering uses their Full Cream Moisturiser as a base, so it keeps your skin very soft and the tanner itself is all natural and includes 2 tanning ingredients Canola Oil (a DHA, active ingredient) and Erythrulose (a sugar-based ingredient) so these two ingredients are responsible for giving you a natural tan without that biscuit smell!

It takes a couple of days for you to see a good amount of colour but once the tan starts to develop it is even, natural and makes me look so healthy. I have been using it on my face quite a bit too & I like that it’s subtle and makes my skin look radiant. This also contains Sweet Almond Oil, Raw Coconut Oil and Squalene which are nourishing and keep your skin looking and feeling its best. This is a whopping 200ml too and for £15.50 I think its a bargain.

MooGoo is fantastic at listing their ingredients and explaining all about their benefits in a very concise and easy to understand way. So if you want to learn a more about the brand and the ingredients they use pop over to moogooskincare.co.uk

This skincare duo is perfect for not only the Summer months but all year round. We really should be using SPF no matter what the weather or the season. It is also nice to have that healthy natural glow of a tan so I will be using this gradual tanner to keep my skin looking its best all year round.

Have you tried anything from this brand?

Products Currently in Use

Its been a good few months since I gave you a peak into my bathroom and let you know about a few of the products I’m currently using.

Imperial Leather Spring Meadow handwash

OK So I know handwash isn’t something to get too excited over, but I bought this the other week & it smells so good. It’s not the most hydrating but I will overlook that because I just love the scent. Its English blossom and gardenia, so fresh, floral and quite sweet. Perfect Summer scent.

Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex Shampoo*

I only have good things to say about this brand, I’m currently using three haircare products from the Superfruit range and to say they’re good is a massive understatement. After using them my hair is full of bounce, its so glossy and feels incredibly healthy. I haven’t used many sulfate-free shampoos but I like that this one is gentle, it never irritates my scalp. I’m almost running out of the shampoo & I will 100% be repurchasing it. If you want to read my full review of this Superfruit Range just click the link.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan in Shower

Last year I used the original version of this, when it was only available in one shade but this year they seem to have relaunched it with a Medium version. The original was just far too light & I found it never built up or developed into any real colour. I will say that loitering in the shower for 3 minutes with the water off whilst this works its magic is a bit of a faff but if it makes me look bronzed then I am down for that. I have used it twice so far & It does make my skin look slightly tanned but nothing to get excited over. I am going to stick with it & see if I can get it to work. Let me know if you use this & how you get on with it. Or if you have a better product for a complete tanning noob.

Lacura Argan Oil Shower Oil

This is a fab product for using after you have shaved your legs. It has the consistency of a thick oil, which is unusual and I really like it. I massage quite a generous amount of product on to my legs then wash it off and it leaves my legs very soothed and soft. I have quite a few favourites from this Argan Oil range from Aldi but this shower Oil is lovely for getting Summer ready legs!

Elemis BiOTEC Skin Energising Cleanser*

I have been using this for a couple of months & I’m still undecided if I like it or not, but determined to use it up. I do like using it more in the morning as the gel consistency is nice and refreshing on my skin. I wouldn’t use this to remove my makeup but I think its a good cleanser for leaving my skin feeling smooth, soft and ready for the day. I still don’t think its very hydrating but If I use a facial oil afterwards it seems to combat that. Let me know if you use this in your routine & how you make it work for you.
