The Answer to Moisturised Radiant Skin: Goodal Moisture Barrier Range | ad

Huge thank you to Goodal and Huntington Communications for sending these products through, that's very generous of you to include so many products in this kit. 

I was thrilled to receive this Goodal kit as my skin has been acting weird on me and I was kind of desperate to find some solution to repair it. Goodal Moisture Barrier came just in time, claiming that the range is designed to repair moisture barrier of the skin to keep it plump and hydrated. 

Before we jump into the actual review, let me tell you a bit of my skin condition. I'm a dry-combination skin type which is quite frustrated. How can one be dry (cheeks and mouth area) and oily (T-zone) at the same time? But that's how my skin roll and some times, I do have to use separate skincare products for different parts of my face. Troublesome, I know. 

I was quite surprised to see the press kit came in a big glass jar with beads inside and a ribbon at the opening. Its like one of the most impressive packaging that I've ever come across.

Inside the kit contains:
1. Moisture Barrier Cream
2. Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh
3. Moisture Barrier Liquid
4. Moisture Barrier Eye Cream 
5. Phytowash Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling

The steps that how I normally apply after washing my face thoroughly is:
Barrier Liquid (as toner) -> Barrier Eye Cream -> Cream Fresh (morning) / Cream (night)

I've been using them for almost 3 weeks and I'm happy to report that the area around my mouth are not as peely/flaky. I always have problems with rough looking peely skin around the mouth area whenever I were to stay in air-conditioned room for long hours. This problem doesn't plagued anymore after using the products. And the bonus point is there's even a subtle healthy cheek glow at the peak of my apples (nope, no highlighters used here thank you). 

If you are interested to know what's the magic behind this range, below are 2 main ingredients that helps with the hydrating and glowy effect. 

1.        Mt Seorak Water
Found from the depths of 580m underground of Mt. Seorak, the 100% natural spring water contains 16 minerals including sodium, calcium and potassium that are known for their abilities to effectively moisturize the skin. These minerals assist in the process of effectively binding water with dehydrated skin cells and replenishes the skin’s moisture level for a radiant and well-hydrated skin.

2.         Mistletoe Moisture Complex Barrier
Able to bear fruit in below zero temperatures, the mistletoe plant is known for their strong endurance properties. This vitality is due to the presence of lectin (a type of protein found in plants), which promotes the secretion of cytokine, a category of smaller proteins which has been clinically proven to maintain skin homeostasis, an important process for skin renewal. Studies have shown that cytokines increases cell production and accelerates renewal of skin cells, making it suitable for use on damaged skin barriers.

The only downside that I can think of is the scent. Its a bit like old-school lotion if you get what I mean. Like you know the early days of pharmacy-available skincare brands that has this bit of powdery florally smell to it. Guess some wouldn't mind, some would even disagree with me and like it, but for me personally, I like it to be a bit more subtle. 

Other than that, I'm overall happy with the product and the effect they have on my skin. I'm giving it a 4/5.

On a side note, I've tried the phytowash and was really intrigued by it. The solution pumped out is a gel like consistency, but once massage it onto dry skin, it turns into this foamy texture that helps exfoliate the skin. So far I've seen my skin brightens quite a bit after each wash, but I do think its innovative idea of chemical peel in bubble form entices me more. 

Goodal skincare range can be found at selected Guardian stores and all BHG stores.
