Good science beauty is an innovative skincare brand that combines kickass ingredients with their patented silicon+ technology. Woah, that was a mouthful and Jo, did you just say technology? Yes, yes I did.
I’m a skeptic by nature so when receiving products I rarely jump in thinking “this will be the best thing ever!” I question, I research and I TRY the product for a lengthy amount of time.
Well, to my surprise I was incredibly pleased with this moisturizer and will now be including it into my daily skincare routine as a staple product!
What is Good Science?
Good Science has spent 10 years formulating their products using science. They have created pockets of silicon loaded with good skin ingredients. These pockets are surrounded by lipids and amino acids (which are an essential part of our outer skins layers) therefore pulling the product into the skin. The positively charged silicon is then attracted to negatively charged skin, pulling the two together like a match made in heaven. It then dissolved into the natural nurtrient orthosilicic acid, which is good for overall skin health and collagen production. Hooray for science!
001-Pu Clarifying Cream
The first product to be released is the 001-Pu Clarifying Cream. This lightweight moisturizer is for blemish prone skin that has been aggregated by city living. Although I don’t have blemish prone skin (only during “that time of the month”) and live in a beach town, nonetheless, I am still surrounded by environmental aggressors daily.
The 001-Pu Cream aims to:
+ combat the skin damaging effects of pollution
+ reduce oiliness and the appearance of blemishes
+ unblock pores and replenish skin
No parabens, no silicone, no bad stuff.
+Silicon (not to be confused with silicone):
Abundant element, important mineral in our body. Great for healthy skin and bones.
+Salic Nigra (willow) Bark Extract: naturalvsource of salicin
Anti-inflammatory + anti-microbial
+Hydrogenated Lipid: skin conditioning lipid
Draws ingredients to the skin
+Arginine: amino acid (naturally occurring)
Helps build collagen and retain moisture, antioxidant
+Glycine: amino acid (naturally occurring)
Collagen formation and hydration
Silicon is an amazing natural mineral. Once combined with oxygen it becomes silica and silica is known for grabbing into debris and other impurities that hit the skin. It strengthens, tightens, naturally exfoliates and retains moisture. Don’t get this mixed up with siliconE, that is a lab made product.
Originally, I have to admit the moisturizer felt a bit light HOWEVER I stuck to the recommended 2 pump dose even though I was skeptical about the amount....I was pleasantly surprised when my skin wasn’t dried out.... in fact it felt really hydrated for how thin and fast drying the product is. I also loved that there is no smell to the product.
My skin was purging. BIG TIME. However, I did not lose faith. My texture was already noticibly different and my skin had a consistent moisture to it that was just right. It didn’t strip away oils but certainly didn’t add any. I decided to continue on using the product to see what my flare ups would do....
Holy. Shit. My skin was SO clear. There were very little, if any breakouts. My texture looked more even, felt more even and had a brightened appearance. I was feeling good. SO incredibly good.
I am lactose intolerant big time and any cheese at all will send a pimple family to camp out on my chin. This is exactly what happened when I went to Wisconsin. Surrounded by cheese curds what’s a girl to do? Not to my surprise, I broke out all around my chin, skin was red and chest had irritation. (Yes, I learned my lesson). I continued using my Good Science lotion during this time and it definitely helped calm down the redness I was experiencing on my skin and kept my skin from getting overly oily.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is surrounded by environmental stressors on a daily basis. I would also suggest this product to anyone who is looking for an everyday easy, lightweight moisturizer even if you are not acne or oil prone. My skin felt and looked radiant, blemish free and far more even. I will be purchasing this product again in the future and can not wait to test out more of Good Science Beauty’s future products!
Upon finishing the sample bottle that I received I immediately ordered myself another. I rarely do this with products and now use it as my go-to morning moisturizer. The only downside is I feel that the type of pump used doesn’t allow for all of the product to be dispearsed so the bottle goes fast. HOWEVER, 2 pumps is really all it takes so no need to go overboard! Pro tip: I flip the bottle upside down when it is close to the end that way I can use every las bit!
