Good For You Girls Skin Care Review and Giveaway

by Lolli

I had pretty good skin as a teen. I started wearing make up when I was 13 (remember the electric blue eye liner and mascara? Yeah, that was me…). I never washed my face before heading to bed, and always woke up with extra-blue eyes in the morning. Luckily, it all washed off in the shower and I still enjoyed my good skin.

But, like most things in life, the good skin didn’t last, and I found myself as a pimpled college student needing to revise my night time routine. It’s tough to start new habits as you get older, but I added in nightly face washing and daily moisturizer to my schedule (until I became a tired mom who fell into bed each night…).

I am now the mother of 3 girls (and two boys, but we’re not talking about them today…). It’s amazing how life repeats itself and how much I can see of myself in my three girls. Luckily, I was able to convince my oldest daughter (who is almost 15) to start washing her face daily. This week, I’ve been working on the other two girls.

Good For You Girls

I was recently introduced to Good For You Girls™, an all-natural, chemical-free skin care line made specifically for girls.

I’ll let the company’s co-founders tell you a little about them and how Good For You Girls™ came to be.

We are Kim and Grace, the co-founders of Good For You Girls™ and very proud moms. We have been friends for years and what started out as a simple trip to our favorite health food store, became the beginning of our Good For You Girls journey. Grace wanted to buy some natural skin care that would be safe and beneficial for her oldest daughter.

After spending what seemed like forever reading labels we quickly realized there were no products we felt were pure, effective or formulated specifically enough for young skin. We knew if we were looking for safe beautiful natural products for our own daughters, other moms were too. Kim had that light bulb moment and we have never looked back!

When I received our sample of Good For You Girls™ products, I was immediately impressed with the scent and the way they made my skin feel (yes, Mama has been using them too!). I think that the most impressive thing about Good For You Girls™ products is not what’s in them, but what’s NOT.

  • Green Packaging – Their boxes are printed on recyclable material with safe, water-based inks. All bottles are recyclable.But they still look beautiful!
  • Cruelty-Free – They never do testing on animals or use ingredients tested on animals.
  • 100% VeganGood For You Girls™ does not use any animal byproducts
  • No Dyes – There are no dyes in any of their products.
  • No GMOsGood For You Girls™ does not use plant ingredients that have been treated with Genetically Modified Organisms.
  • Sulfate & Paraben-Free – There are no methylparaben, propylparaben, or sodium laurel/laureth sulfates in their products.
  • 100% Natural Aromatics – The uplifting citrus scent in Good For You Girls™ is created from the essential oils of grapefruit, orange, lemon and bergamot.

My mom ALWAYS made me wash my face before bed-such a ggod habit!


3 Melissa P. October 28, 2011 at 6:08 am

My routine is simply wash and go. lol. But in the winter my skin gets so dry. I think the Body Wash would really good for my overall skin and the Gel Cleanser and Moisturizer would help to keep my face from feeling so dry through the winter months.

Really very nice and wonderful!!! I do agree with you that it must be the habit to wash the face daily before going to the bed. You seems to have a great skin still a this age. Nice to know about your experience. Thanks a ton!!!!

Um… yeah, I definitely need to work on this nightly routine and get my daughter into it too! I think everything would work well for me!

My routine is basically just washing my face with cleanser in the morning and evening.

I would love to add the gel cleanser to my face routine, typically right now I was my face with clean and clear and use a moisturizing lotion to help with my dry skin


8 Jessica T October 29, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I use Norwex body cloths for my face wash, but would love to try something different!


9 Erica Best October 30, 2011 at 6:58 pm

i would love to have this at night my skin gets really dry from so much wash and this looks like this would work great.

I have the combination skin that’s oily & dry also, mainly in the T-zone.


11 Suzanne October 31, 2011 at 11:24 am

My nightly routine includes washing my face and moisturizing it, so the spray toner would be nice since I never use that.


12 Brenda Hill October 31, 2011 at 9:29 pm

My routine is just to wash my face and dry it gently. I guess I am lucky.


13 Tami M November 1, 2011 at 11:55 am

When I was 20, I met a beautiful 34 year old who looked like she was 20! She swore it was due to her skin care regimen, and i was sold then and there.

I cleanse and moisturize in the morning and evening, and exfoliate once or twice per week I’d like to try the Good for You Girls cleanser – I’m always looking for fresh, light facial cleansers.


14 Christine Jensen November 1, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Realization always comes at last however you can have better idea on it if you’ll constantly visit your dermatologist about it. You can also just take care of yourself trough living a fuller life as to having a balance life style.

Well, I am learning when I was reading this article. It is really important to take care of our skin like we take care of our own self. I do appreciate this blog, I was then able to realize to give importance of my self.

Cream and ointment are effective through consecutive and patiently waiting to be scar fades away. On the other side of cosmetic methods were scars remove instantly with expensive surgeries. With all this skin treatment in which people aim to have it as answer of skin problem they have.
