MooGoo Skincare Review

I’ve suffered with eczema and psoriasis since I was three years old, over my face and body, and have tried many prescribed creams which many unfortunately are steroid based.

So when I received the MooGoo products to try, I was sceptical about it helping……..

2015-06-22 11.17.45I love how the products were sent, in a cute cow box with straw inside. it also contained a booklet with products and information on different types of skin disorders, which I found very helpful.

MooGoo Skincare are an Australian brand which was “first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of “udder cream” was designed to heal the cow’s udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don’t care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even “Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot…” They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy.”

I was sent Irritable Skin Balm and Soothing MSM Cream to try and began using it straight away, as my eczema has been having bad flare ups on my face and neck and I want to stop the steroid creams!

 I’ve been using the Irritable Skin Balm everyday as I feel it has really helped my skin, its soft and quickly absorbs into my skin and works well under make up!

Due to it only containing natural ingredients like sweet almond oil, aloe vera, vitamin e and olive, it smells so fresh and not chemically!! Irritable Skin Balm is free of Paraffin Oil (Liquid Paraffin) and all other petroleum based chemicals and preservatives. So no more thick, greasy heavy eczema creams on my face!

I love this lightweight natural alternative, which feeds my skin and has no skin damaging effects like steroid based creams do.  It is also suitable for babies and adults.

Soothing MSM Cream can be used in conjunction with the Irritable Skin Balm to give a really good boost of nourishment and calmness to the skin. This cream is also suitable as an all over moisturiser, which I use on my legs after shaving as it calms the irritation straight down and stops the itching!

The cream is full of skin healing ingredients. Including Allantoin (Comfrey Root Active), Vitamin E, Raw Coconut Oil and Honey. It contains 10% MSM (Organic Sulfur) which has skin calming properties.

This product doesn’t smell as nice, reminded me of playdough which I cant stand!, however once the cream was absorbed I could no longer smell it, which was good 🙂

My skin was left feeling silky, smooth and hydrated.

Since using these two creams, I no longer have itchy, red, tight patches on my face and neck and have stopped needing to use steroid creams to quickly help calm my skin. I am very shocked with  how well my skin has improved in such little time and I feel so much better in myself, without feeling i’m being stared at due to the eczema.

I will definitely be recommending this range to many people, and look forward to purchasing more from them as they have a much bigger range of products from baby, body, fake tan to make up!!  For more information on MooGoo and their products click on the link MooGoo Skincare

Moyra Nail Varnishes

IMAG3105 IMAG3112

Tall curvy mumma has been selected as an official blogger for Moyra UK, and we were kindly sent 3 nail varnishes, from their extensive range, to trial and review.

We received Holographic no.252, Suede Effect no.504 and No.14.

What I loved about these varnishes are the long, sleek brushes which made the colour glide on smoothly over the nail and so easy, compared to other varnishes which have short, stubby brushes  which don’t fan out on the nail bed making uneven colour!

After applying the first coat, I was stunned at how quick it was starting to dry, within a couple of minutes it was dry enough to apply my second coat! Once my nails were finished they were touch dry in under 5 minutes!! Very impressive!

The colours were gorgeous and as soon as the sun hit the holographical colour it was stunning!! Can’t wait to wear this one in the summer.

With the suede effect I applied a glossy top coat to give it a shine to match the other nails, but next time im going to try a matte top coat to really bring out the suede effect.

The stayin power of these nail varnishes are good too, I’m on day three and still no signs of chips etc. Very impressed Moyra UK xx

the nail varnishes were given to us for this review, but all opinions are honest and our own. No payment was received for this post.
