People....there's a new skincare brand we need to talk about. Good Molecules. Heads up, I was sent the "super seven set", from Beautylish. I've been trying it for a few weeks. I've been using it in my regular routine with other products that I love, using it with mainly Good Molecules products in a routine, using certain products at a time not combined with other Good Molecules products. Basically every which way to see how they layered and what I noticed.
So The Super Seven Set is:
Super Peptide Serum: 1 oz/ 30 ml $12
Hyaluronic Acid Serum: 1 oz/ 30 ml $6
Overnight Exfoliating Serum: 1 oz/ 30 ml $6
Niacinamide Serum: 1 oz/ 30 ml $6
Wake Up Eye Serum: 1 oz/ 30 ml $8
Squalane Oil: .13 ml/ .44 oz $8
Ultra Hydrating Facial Oil: .13 ml/.44 oz $10
Here's a quote from the company off the Beautylish site.
"The idea behind Good Molecules is simple: skincare that works at a fair price. Founded by a team of beauty industry veterans, Good Molecules creates skincare solutions with best-in-class ingredients, backed by research and formulated for effectiveness. By working directly with top labs, Good Molecules offers products that target skin issues—like acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation—without the traditional retail markup. See a difference in your skin, starting at just $6."
So mainly there's no way to get around it, people will compare this to "The Ordinary" products because of the price. What I think about it is, this is easy to understand in simple terms like "Overnight Exfoliating Serum" instead of "10% AHA/BHA Acid Complex". With The Ordinary it was still simple products like Niacinimide, 8% Glycolic Acid Toner, or Vitamin C Suspensions but it was a little overwhelming at times and felt like a chemistry project sometimes as well. You could build your own routine and know exactly where you're adding certain products into your routine, instead of trying to figure out what all is in a major product and plan your routine around that. For instance, maybe a serum from Sephora might have some really expensive (or maybe not) and popular product that has Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, packed with vitamins, etc....but you're never sure how much your getting of each ingredient. So you don't really know if you're getting enough antioxidants or enough HA. So these brands come in to kinda take the guess work out of it right? Plain and simple The Ordinary although supposed to be simple, affordable, and wide variety was getting to be a little too confusing. So much so that I needed a step back and found myself reaching for the products that were my tried and true, not replacing them with a more affordable option that wasn't quite the same. Where as Good Molecules is not over whelming at all and it's very simple, you know what you're using, you know what the bottle is when you pick it up, and you know what that product is for and what it will do.
On the Beautylish site they offer 7 products and 1 set. Here's my 1st opinions about it. I wish there was a Vitamin C available. That's truly the one thing that I wish they had. Possibly a retinol but Vitamin C still wins my vote. I would imagine that they'll expand. Everything I've tried has had a great formula. Goes on the face and neck evenly. I wish the oils were .15 ml if they wanted to makeup them small. So I wish they were .15 ml/ .5 oz. at least. In all honesty I wish the Ultra Hydrating Facial Oil was 30 ml/1 oz because the oils are the moisturizing products in this line. The HA serum is great for absorbing quickly and working on dehydration from within I find, so I'm not counting it as a moisturizing product in this. Which is why I wish they were a little bigger. Perhaps I'm just used to oils being 30 ml though. If I sit and think about it, it takes me a very long time to get through my facial oils, even the ones that are in constant rotation. Perhaps I'll eat my words the farther we get into using these.
I really like the viscosity and formula of these like I said before. It goes on evenly, like I said, it's not balling up on you either because you're not having to rub the face too much. All the serums absorb quickly into the skin. They layer well with each other and they layer well with other products in your routine. There's no reactions that I've had from them. No breakouts so far. No major hiccups. This is not the full review. It's the introduction and first impressions, and kind of introducing you to the new kid on the block and new affordable skincare. I like the simplicity of it, and the fact that it's not overwhelming to look at the products. I like that it's not so much worried with cleanser and moisturizer as in the first step and your last step, it's more directed toward the "treatment" steps in your routines. Usually that's where the bulk of your money goes is toward the treatment products, and they've made them affordable and easy to use in this sense. These are available at Beautylish you can buy them individually or you can get them in the Super Seven Set which is $56.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
