MooGoo Blemish Cleansing Moisturiser Review

MooGoo Natural Chemical Free Blemish Cleansing Moisturiser Review

At the end of January I attended the #nyLDNmeet in London and apart from having a wonderful time I also got to meet the lovely ladies from MooGoo, an Australian brand thats just launched in the UK. We got to have a look at all their products, hear about the company and then very generously, we got to pick an item we'd like to receive to review, I chose the MooGoo Blemish Cleansing Moisturiser*. 

MooGoo, a company whose products originated from a cream used in dairy farms to repair the skin on cow's udders, believe in the importance of using natural and safe ingredients in their products to make something that works well but looks after your skin too. Their products are great for people with sensitive skin or skin problems, but they're also great for people who just want to look after their skin and don't want to put nasty chemicals onto their faces. 

I've suffered from spot prone skin since I hit puberty so Im always on the look out for products to minimise and prevent spots so this immediately called out to me. The first thing that impressed me was the packaging, not only does it arrive in a box with a cow on and stuffed with 'straw' the product box is even shaped like a milk carton! I love the cow theme and think it shows how the company have stuck to their origins, also how adorable is the name MooGoo?!

The cream doesn't contain any bleaches or chemicals unlike most spot treatment creams. It has a very light consistency and spreads very easily so you don't need to use much, I find it feel really moisturising although it does take a bit of time to sink in so I prefer to use this as a nighttime moisturiser. I'm not sure whats in this cream to make it smell so nice but it's got a really nice sweet slightly fudge like smell that isn't overpowering and doesn't smell at all chemically. 

Now the big question is does this moisturiser have any effect on spots? The answer is yes, I think, I always find it's hard to tell how well a new product works on reducing spots, especially if you're like me and you get them regularly no matter what product you use. I did find that I was getting less spots whilst using this cream and it seemed to sooth them and they reduced much more quickly than normal. I do still use a targeted spot treatment with this moisturiser, but that is something I've always used, and I've noticed the cream has helped improve my skin. 

I do still get breakouts, especially hormonal ones, however they are less than before and I do feel like this helps them to disappear quicker. I've enjoyed using this product and even though I am still using other spot targeting treatments I think this product is helping and I really like it as a night time moisturiser or during the day if i'm not wearing makeup. At £12.50 this moisturiser is a little bit more expensive than one you might pick up in Boots, however you pay for what you get, and here you get a product that is natural and good for you.

Overall I really like the MooGoo brand, I think it's great to see an all natural company providing a range of products, and if you suffer from sensitive skin or specific skin problems I'd definitely recommend checking them out. I'd love to see them stocked in more UK stores, I'd really like to try their Oil Cleanser for Combination skin. MooGoo also have a sister brand Dusty Girls which offers chemical free makeup, look out for a review coming soon!

I was sent this product by MooGoo to review, however all opinions are my own.

  2. This sounds fab, I definitely think using less chemicals on my skin is so important! Not sure if you've ever tried it but Mario Badescu do some great spot treatments for hormonal cystic spots, I had cystic acne and it massively reduced how long each spot would last. It's funny how products are made for humans from what has been used on animals, like the shampoo Mane n Tail or whatever it's called!

  10. It's so true that looking after your skin is so important, it's the only skin you get, don't like the thought of covering it in chemicals. I'll have a look at Mario Badescu, sounds really good, nothing seems to get rid of hormonal spots! I think it's so funny too, using a product for cows on my face haha. x

  12. If you react to products I'd definitely recommend looking at MooGoos products, they're really helpful as well so you could always get in touch and ask what they'd recommend. x
