I wanted to try a BB Cream to find out what all the fuss was about regarding them and so went off to buy one. Funnily enough I came back with the GOSH All In One in the colour Sand.
Firstly I must say this colour was a great perfect match for my skin, considering I am very pale and it blended in very well to my natural complexion. However, I personally found it to have a rather dewy finish. Perhaps this is due to the fact it can be used as a moisturiser? Either way I find that it leaves my T-zone and chin shining terribly and it looks terrible on photos! Usually to avoid looking like a shiny disco ball I will use a foundation on top and target the BB Cream around my eye area as this is where I tend to be most dry and it seems to work well there for me.
Now onto the more 'technical' aspects if you will. The smell. It smells rather paint like in my opinion whilst applying however once it's set you tend to not be able to smell it as much which is great. The packaging appearance wise is nice. It's plain and simple. However it leaks and the product ends up all in the lid and around the nozzle thingy. This can make quite a mess and I have recently ruined a makeup bag of mine due to this.
The price is a little costy at around £10. I would say it's only worth half of that. Saying this I have repurchased this product several times due to the wonders it works around my sensitive eye area. It is currently the only thing I can rely on when it comes to applying makeup to my eyelids which swell up and flake when anything else is applied! Gross, I know.
All in all I guess the product is worth a try, certainly if you have skin more on the dry side. If your skin is more oily I would definitely steer clear of this product! It most likely will not be for you.
This stuff isnt bad. I can't say I love it but it has served me well enough in times where I wanted minimal coverage, and it also made a decent primer under my foundation.
(This stuff is a bit too pink and it works well with my yellow-toned foundations)
The shade range is a little finnicky but very good for the paler side of the spectrum.
The only reason I'm saying "no" to repurchasing is because I want to try other BB creams first. This one is the best one I've tried so far (L'oreal and Aveeno, those made me orange)
I tried this one in Sand because I'm very pale, and someone had recommended it on another forum for pale skin. The good news was that it definitely matched my skin tone! It's great to see a smaller company cater for paler skin, especially in a range of only five colours (though they could do with more diverse shades elsewhere in the colour spectrum). It's very sheer, but it did an admirable job of tackling my skin's uneven red patches.
Unfortunately, when cleansing that night, my skin started to burn terribly and became very red. Come the next morning, I had come out in spots all over my face and my skin was still inflamed. It's just about gone down now, but it was quite painful at the time.
So, I've given it two out of five: two for the colour match, three off for the reaction. You'd probably be better off if your skin wasn't as sensitive as mine. I'd also note that the packaging isn't great - the product leaks all over the shop once the lid's off, and inside of the lid when it's closed, which is a dreadful waste of product.
I'm pretty pale and prone to spots, so it has always been difficult for me to find a foundation that was pale enough in colour, corrective enough to cover imperfections, but light enough to not look caked on or make my spots worse.
I am so impressed with this product that I have felt compelled to write this, my first ever make up review.
It was an impulse purchase when i was in superdrug buying some things for my holiday, being pale i needed a bit of SPF factor for my face but something light as i will be doing a lot of swimming with the kids (I didn't want to end up with zebra streaks, or for the whole face of makeup to slide off like a mask hahaha).
to be honest i'd never heard of GOSH, but after comparing lots and spending lots of time i was drawn to this one.
I bought the lightest shade (sand?) and thought what the heck - my 14 yr old daughter will wear it if i need to add it to my long list of unsuitable foundations!
BUT I LOVE IT!
I'm blown away, the colour is slightly darker than i would usually buy but suits my skin tones perfectly (I think i may have been buying the wrong colour for me all this time!), it covers everything that i want covering... but i dont know how? it is so light and gives me such a dewy natural look, my skin is actually improving for wearing this makeup (makeup always makes me skin worse) - now when i say dewy i dont mean oily, i mean like a youthful glow, which i need at my age haha
I would highly recommend!
This was certainly not my favorite product. It was really expensive for the tiny amount of product that you get, which wouldn't be so bad if the product was awesome. It is not. It went on dry and flaky. Honestly, I don't think any of it actually sank into my skin! The only thing I liked about it was the packaging. It was compact and easy to carry on the go. All I need to do now is find a suitable product to add to the packaging!
I have mixed feelings about this BB cream. I have dry skin and it can still bring up some of my dry areas, but not nearly as much as full coverage foundations do which is good. I do find it to be moisturising and dewy without any harsh scent, but the only problem with this is the application. I've found that when I apply it with my fingers it can sometimes cause tiny little balls of the foundation to form that I have to wipe off, you know how glue from a glue stick forms into little sticky balls when you rub it in between your fingers? It's hard to explain, but I notice it strangely did that which can be annoying, but nothing hard to get rid of.
Overall I do like this BB cream, but not enough to give five stars as I would like it to be even more dewy for my dry skin and provide a little more coverage, but you will definitely like it if you want something moisturising and light on your face. I feel like this is more suited for summer time skin. :)
I bought this for the same reason, many people are going for it because of the wonderfully pale colour it offers in 01. I find it impossible to find pale enough products and I don't want to use foundation which looks unnatural on me. This is a tad pink for me but it will do until I find something better. Its a lightweight coverage that also covers pores and doesn't melt easily because of the primer function. It has SPF 15 but I would have appreciated UVA protection as SPF is fairly pointless for everyday. It blends fairly well using fingers. I also really appreciate the fact that it is low in irritating chemicals, fragrance free etc so it doesn't upset my skin at all! I don't like the price or the packaging. I find it hard to get the right amount out and seem to always waste it, which is annoying when the packaging is quite small. When I first opened it, the product had actually seperated so I have no idea how long it was on the shelf for, but definitely puts me off buying again. Overall, if it wasn't for the colour, I wouldn't buy this.
I love this! It has a perfect, light coverage, looks lovely and natural and feels nice on the skin. It doesn't illuminate the skin all day though, max for 2 hours.
i have very pale skin and the colour sand is pale enough for me which is amazing. the coverage is very sheer but with a bit of concealer i find its enough for a warm sunny day.the finish is very dewy so people with oily skin may not enjoy this bb cream. the packaging works fine but i wish it had a pump.
I quite like this BB creme. I was looking for something light and sheer, and this product fits the bill. I like that it helps me create that dewy glow look, which I really go for in the summer time. An added bonus is that it comes in a light enough shade (Sand) for my very pale skin.
I have now purchased this product twice, and have recommended it to others.
Areas for improvement....including sunscreen in the product.
