Out With The Old…

Regular readers of my blog will know that the little bottle of goodness on the left is a very firm favourite of mine, having used several bottles since I first tried it last year.  The Good Things Deep Pore Anti Blemish Cleanser (review here) is probably my most loved cleanser as it is a simple, no fuss cleanser and toner in one, that freshens up my face first thing on a morning and removes my make up at night.  I’m a fan of the double cleanse, so I pop this on a large cotton pad and sweep it over my face before following it up with a cream cleanser on my Rio Sonicleanse.  If you’d like to read more about my cleansing routine then this post tells the full story.  This product really wakes me up when I’m using it on a morning, during the heat wave we’ve been having I’ve been keeping my bottle in the fridge to really cool it down and treat give my skin a treat.  When used to remove make up, I find that this removes all but the most deep set make up effortlessly, even waterproof eye make up.  My skin is left feeling soft, clean and smooth after use, without being stripped of its natural oils and uncomfortably squeaky clean.

With all of the good things I have to say about this product, you can imagine my confusion when I picked up the bottle on the right, the Good Things Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion, and found that it did EXACTLY the same thing as the Cleanser of the same name.  Well, I’ve done a bit of investigatory work and found out that the Good Things Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion IS the same product- only repackaged, renamed and rereleased.  So its out with the old and in with the new!  It contains the same superfruit extracts of wild fig and strawberry as well as liquorice extract and willow bark to fight bacteria and its still knocks the socks off some of the higher end brands at a fraction of the price (£4.99 from Boots to be exact!).  New same, same great product, I can see me repurchasing this for years to come!

    Thanks Laura for this! I had a bit of a confused panic that my favourite lotion had been discontinued but now i can avoid total meltdown thanks to your post reassuring me that it is the same as the 'new' cleanser! Coincidently I am also Laura… and also love the Good Things range. Have you triedthe Amie range? I highly recommend it if you like Good Things 🙂
