Created by Gwyneth Paltrow, goop skincare combines luxury formulas with certified organic ingredients. Launched in March, goop by Juice Beauty nourishes skin with powerful ingredients infused into high-tech formulas that deliver immediate and ongoing results. That was all I needed to know!
Goop skincare was created with glowing, healthy skin in mind. There are six essential products in the line, each with certified organic ingredients infused into high-tech formulas. For anti-aging benefits, the products contain Meristematic Plant Cells, sustainably sourced from poet’s daodil and sweet iris plants, then blended with a revolutionary antioxidant juice complex. Paltrow states that “There’s this myth that if it’s not loaded with chemicals, it can’t possibly work”. The line is esthetically gorgeous and minimal.
I tried two products from the goop skincare line: the Enriching Face Oil and Perfecting Eye Cream.
The goop Enriching Face Oil ($110) has a light scent that is divine, and gets it’s mojo from a blend of sunflower, linseed, jojoba and olive oils. The Face Oil is not a “dry” oil; it’s designed to be used morning or evening. My personal preference is to use the Enriching Face Oil at night, applied on top of moisturizer. While not “heavy”, with my combination skin, it did take a few minutes to absorb fully. My skin felt completely hydrated, soft and glowing!
Of the two products, I really love the goop Perfecting Eye Cream ($90) and could see re-buying this one. The formula is 78% organic and includes peptides, in addition to Sandalwood Nut Oil, Olive Butter and Meristematic Plant Cells. The eye cream absorbs right into skin, thoroughly hydrating the eye area, which leads to an overall improvement in the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Goop by Juice Beauty can be purchased on goop.com and in select retailers nationwide. This is a luxury lifestyle line; if you love the Goop website/newsletter, you’ll love the skincare. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the products I tried, and would give this line two (perfectly manicured) thumbs up.
