Occasionally I have to stop nibbling caviar and patting my pet leopard Darren to make a new Go-To skin care product.
Yes, a range of five fabulous products is a tight, practical, meaningful edit, but there are other skin care items a lady might like to use, or as I like to say, should definitely use, in order to keep her skin authentically happy, healthy and very alluring.
It will come as exactly zero surprise to anyone who’s read any of my beauty writing in the last 10 years that my new product, on sale next month, contains rosehip oil.
I have been annoying innocent folk about its many marvellous attributes for a very long time, and my mother has been going on about it longer still. It’s deeply hydrating, it’s full of essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants and vitamins, it’s restorative, helps with scarring and irritation, sinks in quickly, and makes skin happy.
HOWEVER, as I wrote here, some rosehip oils for sale are off (rancid, oxidising rapidly when exposed to sunlight or air) by the time they reach the consumer, making them about as useful as a doona in Dubai. Rosehip oil needs to be complemented by anti-oxidants to stay useful, and retain its many benefits.
So I thought, why not make a rosehip oil… but then turbocharge it with nine other beautiful pure plant and nut oils to make it a super powerful, definitely not rancid, all-encompassing…. MEGA FACE OIL!!!!!!
And I did. It’s the brand new Go-To product, Face Hero.
It’s gonna be your best skin friend. Truly, it is. Boy are you gonna love it.
The star of Face Hero is the astonishing Buriti (say it with me, bur-ee-chee) oil, a vibrant orange elixir that gives Face Hero its lovely rich colour. Buriti oil is packed with essential fatty acids to rebuild and rehydrate and restore skin cells, anti-oxidants to scavenge free radicals, it replenishes skin damaged from UV or inflammation, PLUS it heals and calms irritated or upset skin. It’s phenomenal stuff.
Other oils invited to this exclusive party are Brazil nut oil and arnica oil and calendula oil and almond oil and Jojoba oil and macadamia oil and evening primrose oil and kiwi fruit seed oil and of course, rosehip oil, as well as vitamin E and other bonus anti-oxidants… all of which means Face Hero hydrates the god damn heck out of your skin, brightens it, thoroughly protects it from the signs of ageing and inflammation, and biffs away all the other nasty shit that visibly ages us.
It’s completely pure, deliciously lightweight, sinks in like a dream, smells of orange blossoms and magic, and keeps your skin in TOP form. I have been using it for six months and aside of being intensely proud of it, and wildly obsessive about it, I think my skin is in terrific shape, despite overseas trips, snow, wind, planes, sun etc etc thanks to Face Hero kicking so much arse.
Use it on clean skin, underneath your sunscreen or face cream, day and night. (It’s not a serum, it’s a face oil (different), so be sure to use it on top of any serums you’re using.)
It’s on sale FEBRUARY 26 exclusively from gotoskincare.com. There is a special pre-sale for Goconuts, so stay alert but not alarmed for a newsletter announcing those details soon.
