Good Things – Manuka Honey Range

Morning lovelies!

We were lucky enough to be sent the Good Things Manuka Honey range to try out and review for you peeps. UK brand Good Things is now available in Clicks stores.

What excited us is that all products are free from parabens, mineral oils and sulphates. The Manuka Honey range is packed full of ingredients like honey, beeswax and royal jelly to clear up skin and keep it hydrated. Here’s what we tried out and what we thought…

Radiance Face Mask 
(R74.95)

This mask contains white clay and beeswax to get rid of impurities whilst hydrating. It also has papaya extract to brighten (papaya is a natural exfoliator). I found that this mask tingled a bit when I applied it, so it might be a little harsh for my skin. It does cleanse well though (as all clay masks do really) and has the most divine smell. If you don’t have super sensitive skin, this is a great mask for anyone struggling with breakouts and dry patches. – Mich

Daily Moisturiser (R109.95)

The moisturiser from this Manuka Honey range contains royal jelly and beeswax for hydration, and echinacea extract, propolis and manuka honey to boot. It also contains bee venom, which claims to promote collagen levels – say whaaaaat? The smell of this moisuriser is delicious and although it is a hydrating cream, my sensitive roaccutane skin didn’t like it on my face, however the rest of my body did and I had no reaction there. I really liked how thick the consistency of the formula is, but after a wash in the shower I still had some residual left over that hadn’t fully absorbed into my skin. – Beth

Creamy Cleanser (R69.95)

Like the Daily Moisturizer, the creamy cleanser boasts royal jelly which is also rich in amino acids. It also contains blackberry extract for radiance and a boost of anitoxidants and of course, Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey is naturally antibacterial and moisturising to leave your skin clean and balanced. Like my oil cleanser, I massaged it into my face and neck and then wiped off with a warm, damp facecloth. The cleanser smells and feels really good- nothing too overbearing and silky smooth. A huge red light for me which normally isn’t a problem since my skin is pretty tough as nails, was that on more sensitive days the area around my nose started to feel a bit uncomfortable. I wanted to love this because it is both salphate and paraben free but unfortunately, I did not get on with it then. That being said, on the days where my skin wasn’t reacting badly, it really did help soften and cleanse without being stripping. I do however feel this would be great for those with acne prone or oily skin that is not sensitive. – Jodi

goodthings-scrub

Refining Scrub (R69.95)

I normally like a scrub that makes me feel like I’m scrubbing off the top two layers of my skin, but I’ve come to realise that this is not always the best for my face. This scrub has a great smell – with the oatmeal and almond oil scents coming through nicely. I’ve been using it every other day for the last two weeks and I can see a difference in my skin. My skins is softer and smoother (and it does actually have a little glow to it haha). The scrub is gentle enough for me to use everyday – which I like to have the option.  – Jess

Love and clean faces,

  1. […] currently enjoying the Good Things Manuka Honey Refining Face Scrub – it’s got a great oatmeal vibe to it, I also love that this brand is free from […]

  2. Thank you for being honest about the sensitivity, my skin is very picky about what I put on it.

    1. I know, my skin usually isn’t that sensitive but something just didn’t agree with me. I wanted to love this so much (paraben and salphate free etc etc) but sadly it just did not meet my expectations. The Body Shop has been nailing it lately with their Camomile and Aloe ranges though.
