I picked up a couple of items, by the new to me brand ‘GOSH’ a few months ago and after using them for a while I feel ready to give my thoughts! I got the GOSH BB Cream in 01 Sand and the GOSH Lumi Drops in 002 Vanilla- both of which I have seen online as suggestions for those with pale skin so I was eager to give them a go.
Prior to purchasing the GOSH BB Cream, I read a fair amount of reviews online. I’ve got pretty pale skin, so after seeing quite a few positive reviews I decided to give it a try. I’d previously never tried a BB Cream- as I had issues with only finding those which were far too dark, but I was curious to try out a product that combined Foundation, Primer and Moisturiser! It’s a pretty thin and liquid consistency but seems to cover fairly well- although as you can see blemishes are still visible with a light layer. However it did a decent job of covering the dark patches around my eyes, and definitely helped to even out my skin tone.
To apply, I have used brushes, makeup sponges and most recently my new silicone sponge and with everything I have tried, it blended in fairly easily. The colour isn’t too yellow or pink toned, and this is perfect for lazy days when I don’t fancy the whole moisturiser, primer, foundation routine- although admittedly if I wanted my skin to appear more flawless I’d want to couple it with a good concealer! I’m definitely glad I picked this up, and when it runs out, I’m sure I’ll pick it up again. It’s a great single step item. Due to this I love it when I go travelling, I took it on my last two holidays and it was small enough to not take up much of my liquid allowance whilst making my makeup routine super speedy so I could spend more time enjoying the sights! For £9.99 I’d definitely recommend giving it a go- and as they stock it in Superdrug you may even be able to find it on an offer.
I also picked up the GOSH Lumi Drops in 002 Vanilla. I like to use it in one of two ways- either on its own as a highlighter, or mixed with the BB Cream (or a foundation) to give a more luminous glow to your skin. I find that it gives a quite subtle look when worn as a highlighter- as seen in the picture but it’s perfect when I am going for a natural makeup look.
What I really like about the Lumi drops is that it isn’t a glittery formula, and instead just seems to give my face a glow! This is the palest shade in the range, and it is really pretty looking on the skin. You get a lot for such a small bottle- which once again makes it perfect for travelling! It’s also well packaged- as it has a small opening which means a lower risk of squeezing out far too much! I’d highly recommend giving it a go, and I found it the perfect shade for my skin tone. For £7.99 I think it is a bargain, and as someone fairly new to highlighters I have found it a brilliant introduction.
I’d really recommend both of these products- and I was happy that both worked well for my fairly pale skin, so definitely one to look out for if you struggle to find pale enough products!
After trying out these two products, I definitely want to try out more by GOSH – so please feel free to share any recommendations of products you have discovered.
