Review: Good for you Girls Skincare Line

Hey everyone, this is a review for a skincare line. Kim Grustas, the owner of Good for you Girls skincare sent me their mini complete skincare kit. This skincare line is mainly targeted towards tweens. I consisted of their Gel Cleanser which is soap-free. It washes away impurities and with all the good products in it, it balances a younger girls’ skin. Our soap-free, gel cleanser gently washes away daily dirt and grime without stripping or irritating skin. Natural surfactants and organic extracts create a beautiful lather that effectively cleans skin of impurities while organic chamomile, antioxidant rich green tea and vitamin E sooth and protect. This is what is says on the website and it actually works for me. Then in the kit comes the refreshing toner. This is the description on the website: For those with blemish issues our Blemish Wash helps deep clean pores and fight bacteria naturally. Delicate Jojoba beads loosen excess oils and impurities while an effective blend of tropical fruit enzymes and meadowsweet extract fight bacteria. Organic calendula and chamomile extracts help soothe skin and calm redness. I also got the Oil-Free Moisturizer. This is the description on the website: Maintain skin's healthy moisture balance without clogging pores. Our lightweight facial moisturizer absorbs instantly to help protect against moisture loss. Organic extracts and aloe vera help replenish nutrients while green tea and organic chamomile extract helps to protect from free radical damage and inflammation. Everything that the website says, it does. I can actually give you honest opinions: When I took the toner and put it on a cotton round and I rubbed it all over my face, a lot of dark crap came out. It was weird, but then I looked at my face and guess what my face actually looked much purified. Now, the moisturizer also worked nicely too because it isn’t oily like other moisturizers and it absorbs quickly. The cleanser is also amazing. Now, I want to leave something for the actual review so let’s get started. Also, there is a surprise at the end so keep reading to know more.

Pros: All of the ingredients are all natural. The cleanser makes my skin very soft and it doesn’t dry my skin out. It doesn’t make me break out and since I have dry and sensitive skin, it doesn’t irritate me. Then, the toner is amazing. It’s better than any toner I’ve ever used. It is not alcohol based and doesn’t sting my skin. It actually gives a nice cooling effect. It removes all the dirt from my skin. I actually used it after I came back from my 6 hour job and I touched my face only a couple of times during the day and after I used it, a lot of the oil and gunk showed on the cotton round. I was going to put a picture, but it’s very gross. Tell me if you want to see the crap. Lastly, the moisturizer really helped balance my skin out. After using everything, my face felt very pure and my pores felt unclogged. I didn’t want to put a moisturizer, but there is actually no oil in it which is good. It absorbed into my face quickly and moisturized nicely.

Cons: No cons, I just love the skincare products.

Overall Review: I think this company is by far the best one out there. It has really improved my skin in the first use and I hope to purchase another kit. Also, one kit lasts 4-6 months which is really a bang for your buck. I just love it!
