MooGoo Irritable Skin Balm, the skincare ‘miracle cream’ that I introduced you guys to about a month ago, has been my go to for a month now and I want to share with you my thoughts.
Here is my skin before (left) and after (right) using MooGoo for a month. I am wearing no makeup whatsoever in either of the photos and, as you may have noticed, my hair is now blonde. This might have a tiny effect on how brunette contrasted with my skin compared to the blonde now, but I am noticing differences in my skin’s redness in general even with my hair up.
Straight away, I am noticing less all over redness, so where my face was red sort of under my skin, it added a general rosiness to my face all over. I would say this has toned down and there is more of ‘uni-colour’? over my face now.
On my forehead the redness has completely disappeared and around the lower half of my cheeks, it is also noticeably less. Around my nose, which is where I am most red, you can still see some redness, especially where I have a couple of blemishes and spots at the moment. This is the same on my chin, which is still a little red but this may be down to individual differences of this morning.
Other things to note is that your diet changes a lot of your body’s physical appearance, not just weight wise but skin quality too. I cant remember what my diet was like before but I would say as the warmer weather (or not as the rain seems to be proving) has come in, I have been eating less stodgy carbohydrates and more salads and protein. This may be having an effect on my skin. Another thing is I am still using the Medik8 Calmwise Serum every morning and every evening with the MooGoo so this could be a joint effort. However, previous to using the MooGoo I was not noticing such a dramatic difference.
One more thing to point out is that I am noticing most difference after washing my face in the morning or evening, before I reapply MooGoo and my serum. So, my suggestion for application and use is that if you have a favourite moisturiser and you still want to use this, you could use MooGoo overnight and your moisturiser in the morning as I think the effects of it are seen several hours later when your skin isn’t inflamed or irritated by rubbing oils and moisturisers all over it.
Overall, this skin cream has seriously made a difference in the quality of my skin and I have had comments on the improvement of the redness from people that I know. Unfortunately this cream doesn’t come with SPF, however, MooGoo does a suncream, anti-aging SPF cream and a moisturiser with SPF in it, so they are definitely worth looking at.
I will carry on using the MooGoo and hopefully it will continue to improve my skin as I use it more. Thank you all for reading and coming back to find out how the product performed! New recipes will be up soon (in the next week!) of cookies and cakes I have been busy making!
