Today, I’m completely pleased to share the skincare I’m currently testing including the new brand Good Molecules . That moment when I wish for at least two extra faces on which to use these items is now. But in the spirit of sharing and because the skincare hoarder in me won’t be satisfied unless there are a few things humming in the background, here’s what I’m currently testing.
Good Molecules is a fairly new brand from the online cosmetics retailer Beautylish. Following in the footsteps of The Ordinary Brand which made effective skincare available at accessible prices, Good Molecules offers the full complement needed for a targeted skincare routine. From a cleansing balm to toner and an assortment of acid-based serums and facial oils, it’s going to be interesting to see how Good Molecules impacts the skincare landscape.
I received four of the brand’s items to try and here’s what I’ll be testing specifically:
- Niacinamide Brightening Toner
- Niacinamide Serum
- Squalene Oil
- Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil
I’m extremely excited to try the serum and the brightening toner which is mercifully alcohol-free. All of the products are housed in glass bottles and right off the bat points are given because the oils and the serum have dropper tops which will help to manage how much product is used. Once I have thoughts to share on how the products have worked on my skin, I’ll be sharing in a full review.
The next set of skincare items I’m currently testing run the gamut from cleanser to essence lotion and yes, another serum.
Galenic 2-in-1 Milky Lotion is a creamy cleanser that I tend to reach for in the morning and sometimes as a first cleanser in the evening to begin the makeup removal process. As it’s still early days, I’ll reserve my feelings about this cleanser for a future post to let you know if it ticks the box as a good French Pharmacy workhorse.
From Germany comes MBR Two in One Cleanser, a dense, creamy formula that is likely one of the most innovative cleansers I’ve had the pleasure of encountering. I really want to get to at least the half-way mark with this cleanser before deciding if it’s a must-buy or a pass, so do bear with me as it’s important to offer you all angles about this product.
Then there’s Inca Rose Pure Solutions Stem Cells, a serum that is as clear as water yet has a texture similar to a watery gel. Without any detectable scent, it’s touted as a powerful serum that draws on the power of apple, gardenia and grape stem cells. It leaves a tightened feeling on the skin after it’s applied but that eventually wears off. While it’s early days in using it I can already say that it ‘blesses’ the skin with a brighter-looking appearance in the morning. But I may have to shelve this while I work through the Good Molecules one but until that time, Inca Rose is an intriguing brand to have a look at.
Lastly, I’ve made my way through more than half of Chanel’s Le Blanc Essence Lotion Healthy Light Creator. This is a hydrating lotion that goes on after cleansing and until the full review, for now, I’ll say it’s been a delight to use. It’s definitely worthy to be repurchased as it also provides a great base over which to layer foundations. It’s a milky fluid that only requires a small amount for the entire face and I started seeing results a couple of weeks after consistent use. Full thoughts about this lotion will appear soon here on the blog.
I’m really excited to share the outcomes of these items with you so in the meantime, see the latest additions to my makeup bag [in this post] and if you happen to have a smashed pressed powder that needs to be ‘repaired’, check out one solution [right here] and I hope this helps.
