GIRL GOT GOOP-ED: EXFOLIATING INSTANT FACIAL
I have become that girl who wears her hair in a half topknot, throws on her Outdoor Voices outfit for yoga and come home to drink her home-brewed Kombucha. Somewhere in between embracing my new-found veganism and accidentally swallowing the glob of mucus that sit in the bottom of my rotten tea, I managed to try the much-raved-about Exfoliating Instant Facial by Goop by Juice Beauty.
You would have already known that Gwyneth's products come at Gwyneth prices. After all, this is the same woman who proclaims, “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.” For those of us who make anything less than Whole-Foods-and-uni-everyday, buying this line would mean you'd have sell a portion of your liver and hope it grows back in time for your next product replenishment.
But God, it's worth it. I've burned my face off literally once during an in-office peel, and this product comes close to that holy grail level. You apply a thin, even layer on your face, leave it on for three minutes, massage and wash off. It's 86 percent organic, and considering the fact that I have eczema and therefore, highly sensitized skin, the product did its job very well and didn't agitate my skin after. It could be labelled FaceTune in a jar - my hyper pigmentation is noticeably reduced and my skin is smoother than, well, a fresh jar of Skippy.
I say sell that liver and buy it.
