If you haven’t heard about the brand: “Go-To Skincare” created by Zoe Foster Blake who is a beauty expert from Australia. Her experience reviewing a multitude of products made her realize that there was something missing in the skincare industry.
Go-To Skincare is 100% cruelty free, gentle on the skin and not to mention is smells AH-MA-ZING. If you like very soft fruit nosed fragrance then you’ll love this skincare line.
I was sent three products to test out and I will give you my honest review for each of these. The products I was sent are: Face Hero Face Oil, Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer and the Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser. Yes, these are oil based products but prepare to be amazed…I have oily, acne prone skin!
Sure now I don’t have as much acne as I used to have but I definitely get oily in the T-Zone areas. In my mid-thirties I am looking for the healthiest, baby glowing skin I can get. That starts with hydrated skin and if you’re not using products that nourish and put nutrients BACK into the skin what are you even DOING?
And yes, oil is good for oily skin! I have used an oil cleanser before and it did not cause me to break out. Keep reading for a review of each of the products I was sent because my findings will SHOCK and AWE you!

Go-To Skincare Product Review: Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser
As mentioned above, I have used an oil cleanser before. The Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser is amazing because it is not greasy. It goes on light and evenly and as I massaged into the skin I felt it really get into the textured pores I have, especially on my chin. The Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser comes with a mini cloth which I must say is extra soft and I never know what kind of cloth to dry my face with so that was an added bonus.
The next day, I could feel that the rough under the skin bumps had gotten smaller or pretty much vanished and I didn’t feel I had to cleanse my skin right in the morning as I usually do.
If you have dry skin you’ll love this oil based cleanser because it won’t irritate or cause you to tighten up. If you have oily skin you’ll love this cleanser because it will release the dirt in your pores and WON’T make you oily.
Go-To Skincare Product Review: Face Hero Face Oil
Ok we are sticking to the theme of OILS ARE GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN and the Face Hero Face Oil is no joke. If you haven’t gotten into skin oils and you are a beginner this is an easy face oil to get started with. Oils can be tricky to use but I like to apply them after I cleanse my face at night if I’m not putting on a serum. Sleeping overnight with a face oil is one of the best ways to turn around dehydrated skin and wake up glowing.
The Face Hero Face Oil is a best seller from Go-To Skincare because it contains 10 nut and seed oils to help hydrated. Oils include: Macadamia Oil, Brazil Nut Oil, Rosehip Oil, multiple flower extracts, Vitamin E and more. For the full list of ingredients click here.
If you want glowy and bouncy skin everyday you need to try the Hero Face Oil by Go-To Skincare.
How Do I use the Hero Face Oil?
I know it is not so usual to use a face oil but trust me: any skin type can and SHOULD use a face oil especially the Face Hero Face Oil because it is so lightweight.
In the morning: Apply the Hero Face Oil after all serums and toners but BEFORE your SPF and makeup. It’s basically the middle filling of your face sandwich.
At night: Hero Face Oil goes on after you cleanse and apply your serums and toners. You should still apply a night cream rich moisturizer on after to lock in the extra moisture.
If you use a Gua Sha and are looking for a light facial oil to use with it then I really do suggest the Hero Face Oil because it is lightweight and allows the Gua Sha to glide over easily.
Go-To Skincare Product Review: Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer
This is the most unique daily moisturizer that I have ever used. The Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer is so unique because it contains the ingredient called the: amla berry. The amla berry is said to have 30x more antioxidants than oranges. So, if you’re considering where your vitamin C routine fits in you actually don’t need it if you use the Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer.
This daily moisturizer all prevents the first signs of aging because it contains CoQ10. This ingredient helps to prevent external factors that damage your skin such as pollution and anti-aging effects to counter the negative effects of CoQ10.
What is so unique about the texture of the Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer is that it feels oily to the touch but then it blends seamlessly into the skin. It almost feels like a skin butter and it is so smooth and enjoyable to apply.
I love using this in the morning after I cleanse my skin and before I apply SPF. I also LOVE the smell ***SQUEEEE*** it smells beachy, peachy and nutty all in one little tub!
Is Go-To Skincare Good?
If you’re asking if Go-To Skincare is good, the reviews don’t lie most people LOVE IT! The reviews on Go-ToSkincare.com are very positive and a lot of the best selling products such as the Face Hero are constantly ones that people are raving about. If you have sensitive skin and breakouts you’re going to love Go-To Skincare if you want to step up your game.
All of the products are made to be worn and used together. Try mixing the Face Hero Oil with the Very Useful Face Cream Daily Moisturizer for a super hydrated feel if you are worried about using a face oil for the first time.
