When I first used the cleanser, I loved the light texture of the product, which isn’t thick or greasy. I was super impressed with how easy it is to use and how well it removes make-up using just my hands.
Go-To founded by Zoë Foster Blake launches Fancy Face, a luxurious botanical cleansing oil that dissolves all makeup, oil, primer, sunscreen (even zinc) and grime, that leaves the skin nourished, clean and supple. There’s zero residue, and no stripping the skin. Fancy Face is as useful for mature or dry skin, as it is young, oily or heavy made-up skin. Every Fancy face comes with a complimentary muslin Posh Cloth for the full cleansing ritual.
Unlike other cleansers this one is oil-based, which means it has super-cleansing-powers that will leave your skin squeaky clean without feeling dry or tight. Instead it promises to leave it nourished and healthy.
Hoo boy. I am a fan! By the time January hit, summer had really done a number on my skin. I’d been applying and reapplying sunscreen over the break and as a result, my skin was dotted with blackheads (across the nose) and little bumps (on my right cheek). I also had a few cute pimples brewing on my chin. Nothing that would stop traffic but still – I would prefer not to have said blackheads, bumps and breakouts.
I also reckon it does an excellent job of removing makeup, mascara included, if you do as instructed and massage it into dry skin. The result is fresh, cleansed skin that feels soft, hydrated and ready for a second cleanse OR any serums/moisturisers in your nighttime routine.
I think we need to breakup . . . or maybe just take a break?! It's not you, it's me. I've found a love closer to home and I'm becoming obsessed. Thanks for the good times and good skin,
That's basically how the conversation went (in my head) when I made my way to the bathroom cabinet forGo-To Skin Care's new Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser($45) instead of my trusty Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. TheGo-Toteam generously sent me the fancy new face cleanser pre-launch so that I could alert you, good-skin-loving-people, to my (and probably soon to be your) new favourite cleanser. Let me break it down.
"I’m all about looking after your skin first, before thinking about make-up,” says Emma Bates, the partnerships manager at millennial luggage brand Away. In the five years since she first started experimenting with skin care, Bates has tried a lot of different products, ultimately narrowing down her routine to a few key brands: Go-To, Philosophy, Hers, Bliss, and Supergoop! For her, it’s all about products that don’t involve a lot of complicated ingredients. She developed her eight-product evening routine through recommendations from friends, though she’s also not above shopping based on ads. “Being in marketing, I will admit that I am a sucker for a great campaign or strategy, so there is the odd spontaneous purchase here and there,” she admits. Below, a look at her favorite exfoliating pads, the hyaluronic serum she’s willing to splurge on, and the prescription product that has helped her with fine lines.
"While researching the rise of A-Beauty, aka Australian Beauty, I came across Go-To. The brand was created by a former magazine beauty editor, so I can trust that she's tried everything and knows what really works. I instantly fell in love with the light, whipped foam that comes out smelling fresh and zesty. It instantly wakes me up in the morning and, most importantly, leaves skin feeling baby-soft." — Kristina Rodulfo, ELLE.com Senior Beauty Editor
