Skin Care Saturday- MooGoo Full Cream

 

Available in 250ml Jar or 75ml Airless Travel Pump This is a “creamier” version of the original Udder Cream moisturiser. It is designed to moisturise easily irritated skin using natural ingredients. The base oil of the cream is Sweet Almond Oil. This is high in the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin. Also raw Coconut Oil which naturopaths often use as a skin soothing oil. Other ingredients include pasteurised honey (so safe for babies). The pH is balanced to the skin through the use of Apple Cider Vinegar. Naturally, the apple and honey give the cream a wonderful fragrance and there is no need for us to add any other fragrance.  [product description from MooGoo website]

Review

I love discovering new ‘natural’ skin care brands. My local health food store stocks awesome organic skin care lines, and since picking up the MooGoo Milk Shampoo about a month ago (reviewed here), I’m gradually getting hooked on the other products in their line. I will be reviewing the MooGoo Milk Wash and their MSM soothing cream in the coming weeks.

Like all MooGoo products, MooGoo Full Cream is made with skin loving ingredients and no fillers. Also in line with the brand’s focus, the cream is developed for sensitive, eczema prone skin, with anti inflammatory ingredients like Allantoin, Aloe Vera, and raw coconut oil. This is perfect for me at this time of year because my skin gets very aggravated by the cold and the severe drop in indoor humidity levels with ducted heating.

It smells like milk and honey, and feels incredibly comforting after a long day. It is very soothing and quite hydrating, but with my super dry skin I like to alternate this with a body butter (or more recently, my DIY Shea Butter, Honey, and B5 body cream) for the extra emolliency and barrier function that butters provide.

I love the cute pictures of cows on the MooGoo packaging and website too :)
