Review - MooGoo Skincare

I do love a good beauty review, especially something that's natural and a bit different at the same time. That's why I was thrilled to be sent some products to review from MooGoo Skincare.
A little bit about MooGoo:-

"MooGoo was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of "udder cream" was designed to heal the cow's udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don't care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even "Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot..." They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy."

Sound awesome? Well is it! I was sent two products, the Skin Milk Udder Cream, and the 3 Vitamins Eye Serum.

Three Vitamins Eye Serum

MooGoo’s 3 Vitamins Eye Serum is made by dissolving three powerful topical vitamins through a natural base of anti-oxidant oils that mimic the skin's own sebum. I've used similar serums in the past and in terms of value for money, at £20 I think this is a good buy. The serum is slightly greasy but then you would expect that since it is made from oils! I like the fact that it has a very delicate smell since I am allergic to a lot of skin products so anything perfumed I stay away from. I found that the serum sank into my skin thoroughly and by the morning there was no residue left on my skin or greasiness. I noticed by skin did seem smoother after a few weeks of use, which is the whole point right!?

MooGoo Udder Cream
 MooGoo’s Skin Milk Udder Cream (£8) is being recommended by a number of oncologists and hospitals in Australia due to its efficacy in helping the recovery from chemo and radiotherapy induced dermatitis. In terms of its use as an everyday moisturiser, I found it probably too thick for the face unless you have very dry skin. As a hand and body cream however I found it brilliant. Again, like the serum is initially feels quite greasy but easily sinks in without much rubbing. I actually had my very first break out of eczema a few weeks ago and so I tried this on the affected patch of skin near my elbow. By the morning the outbreak had completely gone and my skin felt smooth again. Again, this product has very little smell which in my opinion is a good thing as it means it has very few chemicals in it. I'd definitely recommend it not only for adults but for children too as an alternative to the double base cream etc.

I really like the fact that MooGoo have done proper and transparent research into their product and the background of the company makes it interesting too.

Sadly at present there are no stockists in the UK that I could find, but the products are available to buy online via their website. Aside from the products I was sent they have a huge range to choose from, so it's definitely worth taking a look!

These items were sent to me for the purpose of review though all opinions are my own.
