Beauty Product of the Week: Go-To Very Lightweight Moisturiser

Posted: 16 June 2022 12:35 pm

Go-To drops a double debut with its very first moisturiser for oily skin and reusable packaging.

Zoë Foster Blake and her team at Go-To Skincare have bloody done it again. The cult fave beauty brand has dropped its very first moisturiser for oily skin: The Very Lightweight Moisturiser. It's also the brand's first foray into reusable packaging, which we absolutely love to see. The new product is complementary to the Go-To Very Useful Face Cream and we were lucky enough to give the Very Lightweight Moisturiser a whirl before it hit the shelves.

Before we get carried away, this product was gifted but with no obligation to review or post. OK, let's get into it.

About the product

As you might've picked up from the name, the Go-To Very Lightweight Moisturiser has a light and airy gel texture. Unlike some thicker moisturisers, it soaks in very quickly and has a more mattifying finish.

This makes it ideal for people with oily, combination or breakout-prone skin that don't want to add too much extra shine. It may sound counterintuitive but oily skin can still get dehydrated, so the ceramides in this product can help retain moisture and minimise signs of dehydration. It also uses provitamin B5 to soothe the skin, which should calm any redness or inflammation. The clover flower extract also helps balance oil production and will reduce the appearance of pores. It also contains hyaluronic acid and aloe vera extract, which offers long-lasting hydration.

As we mentioned, it's also Go-To's very first product with refillable packaging. The moisturiser comes inside a disposable pod, which you can remove and replace inside the tub when you're ready for a top-up.

The Very Lightweight Moisturiser is suitable for your AM and PM routine after applying any serums or oils. If you want to double down on the hydration, it's also fine to pair with the Go-To Very Useful Face Cream.

The review

The Go-To Very Lightweight Moisturiser ($55)

My skin is definitely more on the dry side, so I'm not necessarily the target audience for this moisturiser. But with that being said, I've still really enjoyed using this product for the last few weeks.

Although it does have a more matte finish than other moisturisers, it still brightens the skin and gives you a subtle glow. The combination of hyaluronic acid and aloe vera means that there's still enough hydration to quench my skin. I've only recently jumped on the gel moisturiser train, but find they feel instantly hydrating on the skin without any greasy residue.

As a sensitive skin girly, I've also found that the Very Lightweight Moisturiser also lives up to its promise of soothing the skin and calming redness. Typically I prefer a moisturiser that gives me a dewy base to work with, so I like to pair this with a thicker moisturiser for my AM routine.

I know they say that what counts is on the inside, but I LOVE that this product comes with refillable packaging. It's great to see Go-To moving in this more sustainable direction and fingers crossed we see it rolled out across the rest of its products in the future.

Hot tip: Don't forget to look out for TerraCycle drop-offs at Mecca, Sephora, Priceline and other retailers to recycle your beauty product empties in-store.

Final verdict

I meeeean, the Go-To Very Lightweight Moisturiser dropped 2 days ago and has already sold out online at Mecca. So do I really need to say anything else?

The Go-To Very Lightweight Moisturiser passes the vibe check. Even as a dry skin gal, I love this product and found it really easy to pair with other products in my skincare routine. If you're thinking that $55 is a little pricy for a moisturiser, I've been using this morning and night for almost 3 weeks and have barely made a dent in the 50ml product. So a little bit defs goes a long way and you'll get bang for your buck.

Where to shop
