Good Things Ultra Rich Range!

I had a lovely little surprise the other day when a large box arrived from Wizard PR, containing products from the new ‘Ultra Rich’ from Good Things, a company that I’d heard of, but never used. Now, after having a bit of time to try the products out, I have to say that I am actually very, very impressed with them.

The first thing that hit me was the scent of the products, beautifully fruity sweet scents, with just a little bit of a tang to stop them being sickly (although I don’t mind sickly in the right products, it has to be said), they actually smell a bit sherbet-y to me - literally smelling good enough to eat. Actually, they all have slightly different scents, but not wildly so, so can be used together with absolutely no clashing of fragrance.

The other thing I noticed was on the press release and that was the price of each product... they’re VERY affordable, which I have to say isn’t always a deciding factor for me with any given product (as I don’t mind paying more for a product that performs well, and I’m not a fan of buying cheap, just for the sake of doing so either... for me, a product has to perform well at whatever price point it is at), but is still great to see – especially for a brand that appears to be quite ethical. I received:

Ultra Rich Creamy Scrub, £4.99 for 200ml with Superfruit Extracts of Pomegranate and Red Grape – When I first squeezed this out of the tube onto my skin, I thought it was going to be one of those scrubs that only had a few ‘beads’ to exfoliate in that didn’t actually exfoliate at all, since it was quite a smooth consistency at first feel, with just a few seedy bits showing up. I was wrong, I massaged it into my skin and all the tiny ‘micro beads’ started to become apparent and they did a GREAT job of exfoliating my skin without it feeling harsh or leaving my skin sore. My tip I would give for using this would be to use it on dry skin before your shower, for even more exfoliation!

Ultra Rich Body Lotion, £4.99 for 250ml with Superfruit Extracts of Cranberry and Avocado – This is a very light lotion, suitable for pretty much all skins as although it is a very light formula, I do still find it very hydrating; it sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling soft and supple.

Ultra Rich Body Butter, £6.49 for 300ml with Suprtfruit Extracts of Papaya and Mango – This is a very thick and rich body butter that is extremely hydrating, but isn’t overly heavy on the skin and doesn’t take forever to sink in either. It feels like a very luxurious product to use, and whilst it would be very suitable for all skin types, I do feel that dry skin would benefit even more from this. It leaves my skin velvety soft and super smooth – lush!

Obviously if you’re not a fan of sweet or fruity scents, then these products may not be for you – although if you can look past this, they’re totally worth using as they perform really well too and are at a price that won’t break the bank.

All in all, I am very impressed and would repurchase these products in a heartbeat!!
