Welcome to our new feature called #WeTriedIt where we’ll be sharing our honest and true thoughts about products, treatments, experiences (and more) that we stumble upon. We know there are so many beauty products, fitness classes and green juices out there so when we find the best of the best, we want to share it with you!
Recently at a private media event at The Detox Market in Toronto, we had the opportunity of a lifetime to meet with goop Beauty Director Jean Godfrey June and while we were there, we were generously gifted the infamous Goop Exfoliating Instant Facial. Not only was June raving about this product, but it also happens to be Gwenyth’s personal favourite! Obviously so we wasted no time testing it out for ourselves.
See below for our review and click HERE for Jean’s must-have skincare secrets!
What It Is:
goop’s Exfoliating Instant Facial.
Not only does this miracle-in-a-jar exfoliate (duh!) but it also tightens and soothes skin with mix of natural alpha and beta hydroxy acids, plant-based cellulose beads and vitamin B5. Since this isn’t exactly the biggest jar we’ve ever seen, we use this baby as a special weekly treat for our skin; a ‘lil tip from Jean is to use it before you cleanse to get your cleanser working double time to give your skin the deep clean it deserves!
We know it’s a bit steep for a (rather small) skincare product BUT — and hear us out — it’s seriously worth it. A little goes a long way and you only need a small amount for it to work. Goop.com says to use it 2-3 times a week but since us non millionaires want to make this stuff last, we indulge only once a week at most.
Where We Got It:
The Detox Market.
With two (almost 3!) locations in Toronto and multiple in LA, The Detox Market is known for their commitment to natural beauty and wellness. We could shop for days with their never-ending selection of green beauty products to detoxify your life from organic skin care and natural makeup to wellness teas and even safe household products. If you’re looking to make the switch to organic beauty – this is the place for you!
What We Think:
Even as someone (me, Blair) with sensitive skin who can be a little apprehensive to switching up their skincare routine, the risk was SO worth the reward. I can honestly say that my skin hasn’t been this good since before I started slathering on makeup at the adorable age of 9.
Another bonus is the whole process takes only 3 minutes so even busy babes like us have time to indulge – something we’re not accustomed to! Not only is this product worth its steep price tag but the fact that it’s all natural and certified organic is just the cherry on top of this skincare sundae.
