Skin Authority | GO! Gorgeous Kit Review

Hello beauty babes, today I have a review for you of the GO! Gorgeous Kit ($58) that I received c/o Skin Authority. This is a kit that includes Skin Authority's "most powerful products". It includes these four personal-sized products: Daily Cleanser, Resurfacing Accelerator, Tri-Power Peptide Hydrator and Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 30. According to the site, these are the benefits of these products and this kit:
  • Powerful and portable daily skin care kit.
  • Ideal as an introduction, for travel, or for the gym.
  • Complete daily routine to help produce healthier, younger looking skin.
  • Helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Helps limit future damage and premature aging.
  • Helps brighten skin and stimulate cellular turnover.
  • Helps accelerate new cell growth and boost collagen production.
  • Provides full-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB exposure. 
And if all that doesn't sound amazing enough, I thought it was really neat to discover that you can also get expert skin coaching with your Skin Authority products! I know that for a lot of people trying new products (especially for your skin) can raise some questions and concerns. Its great to know that you can get the answers and guidance you may need with your skin and skin care system. 

Something I would like to note before I get into the break down of the products and my thoughts is that shortly after I started using this kit, I did experience a little bit of an acne breakout. Its been quite some time (maybe a year) since I have had a break out and it came on pretty strong.

I wanted to mention this because sometimes when you try new skin care, especially ones with active ingredients that increase cell turnover - your skin may purge and "get worse, before it gets better". You just need to continue and give it time, usually about 3-6 weeks. If breakouts continue or get worse after that point, then the product is not right for you! But its good to keep this in mind, as we tend to instantly think a product is "bad" if it breaks us out once we start to use it. As for me, yes my breakout started going away. I am currently still dealing with the last of it, but it hasn't worsened.

On that note, if I had been more worried about my skin - or unfamiliar with "skin purge"... I know I could have taken advantage of the Skin Coaching provided by Skin Authority, which I already mentioned.

Daily Cleanser: "Gently cleanses the face and body. Leaves skin refreshed, soft, and prepped for a daily routine." 

My Thoughts: Even though this is a good cleanser, I wasn't wow'd by it. Not sure what would really "wow" me about a cleanser, but I just kind of felt like - "ok this did its job" and that was it. Its just one very necessary step that works in partner with the rest of the products. This is a perfect cleanser for all skin types. But I think for someone who has sensitive skin, this may really stand out, because it really is very gentle, and doesn't have any fragrance or dyes. 

Sunscreen Moisturuzer: "Vitamin and botanical rich daily moisturizer hydrates, nourishes, and SPF 30 protects in one simple, dry finish step." 

My Thoughts: I am a big fan of sunscreen moisturizers, and this one has become a new favorite! The convenience of a 2-in-1 is my preferred choice, since most regular sunscreens really dry my skin out. And unlike most sunscreens, this one isn't greasy or oily. It absorbs beautifully and doesn't leave a white-cast either.
Resurfacing Accelerator: "Gentle action, leave-on exfoliator that helps transform skin for a firmer, smoother, and more radiant appearance."

My Thoughts: My #1 Favorite product from this kit! I truly believe Skin Authority has found the fountain of youth and is selling it as this resurfacing accelerator! When I looked in the mirror, the morning after my 2nd time using this I was shocked to see just how noticeably firmer and smoother my skin looked. I've got some fine lines forming on my forehead, that have diminished quite a bit since using this product. I am quite impressed and amazed by this product! 

Something to note is that it may cause some stinging/tingling/burning feeling the first few times you use it. Though this is a typical sensation for a leave on exfoliator, I wanted to mention for those who have more sensitive skin, because the feeling is pretty intense. I have tried a few other chemical peels/exfoliators that cause the similar tinging/stinging sensation, however this one was the most intense I have experience. Good thing for me, is that I don't have sensitive skin, and I didn't mind the feeling. 

Tri-Power Peptide Hydrator: "Peptide-rich moisturizer hydrates skin and firms tone for a brighter complexion and a more lifted look."

My Thoughts: This is my 2nd favorite product from this kit. I have combination, leaning more towards dry skin. So, I love (and need) a good hydrator like this for my skin. The Tro-Power Peptide Hydrator is perfection. It instantly makes my skin feel moisturized and youthful - I want to say plump - but that sounds bad. But its so good - my skin honestly feels plump with hydration. It helps with dry patches and just over all hydration and moisture for my skin. ♥

Overall this is a great kit! Its a very easy routine, yet provides everything you need; Clean skin, sun protection, hydration as well as a more youthful appearance! Since the products in this kit are "personal-size" its perfect for traveling or going to the gym, or simply as an introductory kit to Skin Authority products. A little bit goes a long way with each of these products, so they will last you some time. I have been using them for a month now and still have enough product to probably last me another month.

  3. This is a new brand to me and I don't think its even available here. I really like the sound of the Sunscreen Moisturizer as I always forget to apply my SPF. It sounds lovely! x
