YourGood Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser Review

I did the 28 Your Good Skin challenge when the brand first launched in 2017. Since then I have repurchased the SPF30 moisturizer a LOT and recommended it to so many people. Your Good skin is a good budget-friendly brand so when I was looking for a balmy cleanser I made sure to check it out.

I picked the YourGood Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser which is now finished so I can bring you my full review!

What the brand says


This transforming gel gently melts away make-up, excess oil & daily impurities.


From first use, skin looks healthy & feels instantly nourished. Skin feels smooth, supple & moisturized. Proven to give you more good skin days. Formulated without parabens & fragrance-free. Dermatologically tested & suitable for all skin, even sensitive.



This was my first cleanse in my evening double cleansing routine. This cleanser is a gel which transforms into oil then emulsifies into milk.  It has a mild scent but I did not experience any irritation.

This cleanser does great to remove traces of makeup, grime and oils. I use a fair amount of the gel and massage it on dry skin till it turns into an oil. How long this takes depends on the amount I dispense. Once it turns into oil, it moves around easily on the skin. They describe it as a ‘light oil’ but I don’t think the oil feels light on the oil. After massing for a few seconds, I add a bit of warm water to start emulsifying it. I keep doing this until it turns into milk then rinse it away with warm water. I found that using cold or room temperature water doesn’t emulsify it properly and after rinsing leaves a residue on the skin. Rinsing the milk away with warm water leaves a slight residue on the skin.

The main ingredients in this cleanser are the same across the brand, it’s been formulated with green tea, bisabolol and vitamin C.


I do like this cleanser and I think it’s the drugstore dupe for the Beauty Pie Japanfusion cleanser which I love. They are similar in terms of texture but the main difference is that the BP Japanfusion leave rinses away clean and it’s easier to turn into an oil and milk.

This is a great cleanser but it has to be removed with warm water. It does well with removing makeup and SPF. Whilst it leaves some residue on the skin, my second cleanser is able to pick this up.

The member’s price for the BeautyPie cleanser is the same as this one however non-members pay the full price which is £25. If you don’t want to join BeautyPie, the comforting Gel cleanser is your best bet.

I will recommend this as a 1st cleanse in the evening only and go in with a second cleanser to remove the residue. Sticking with the brand, I recommend the Refreshing Cleanser

YourGood Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser is £6 in Boots



Your Good Skin Instant Brightening Booster Review

Your Good Skin by Boots is one of my favourite drugstore brands, I particularly love the SPF 30 day cream and the cleanser. I was browsing Boots and saw the brand new Instant Brightening Booster and I picked it up straight away. It was on introductory price plus I love anything that says Vitamin C and brightening.

The Booster promises to instantly brighten the skin give a boost of radiance. It has an antioxidant complex of Vitamin C, Green tea, Lipochroman and Vitamin E to help protect against the environment. The serum is non-pore blocking and safe for all skin types.


I opened the box as soon as I got home and was slightly disappointed to see the serum is iridescent with golden shimmer in it. I do not like iridescence in my skincare because I feel like its gimmicky but at this point, it was too late lol.

The serum is supposed to be used at least 3 times a week and mixed with the Balancing skin concentrate. I used it every morning and some nights ‘neat’ after toning and before other serums. The serum itself sinks into the skin very quickly but I don’t find it hydrating (it doesn’t claim to do this anyway). I experienced no issues with it using it alone. It doesn’t have any particular scent, just smells like skincare to me.

The serum didn’t do much to my skin in terms of brightening. Sure the iridescence will make the skin look more luminous thanks to the shimmer but I have not experienced any long term benefits. This serum has lasted 3 and a half weeks using it every morning and some nights.


I always side-eye skincare products that promise radiance and have shimmer/iridescence because it’s almost always relying on that for radiance. That is the case for this booster. I didn’t experience any long term benefits but of course, the instant radiance is due to shimmer. Had I opened the box and saw this in-store, I wouldn’t have purchased it. The serum didn’t offer hydration for me and it also doesn’t claim to do this.

One benefit I can see is that the booster has an antioxidant complex of well-known antioxidant ingredients so at least I was getting that protection from pollutants.

Your Good Skin Instant Brightening Booster is £10.99 at Boots

Your Good Skin Challenge Full Review

Countdown to Christmas!

Hey hey guys, it seems like just yesterday I was announcing that I will be taking part in Your Good Skin Challenge. Your Good Skin is the new skincare range from Boots which promises visibly healthier skin in just 28 days

I decided to test this out, so I purchased the core items in the collection to use exclusively for the whole month of November, which gives me a little bit over the 28-day milestone. The only products I didn’t use from the collection were:  toner- I used Pixi Glow Tonic, face masks- I switched between GlamGlow Supermud, Sephora Sheet masks and BodyShop face masks. I think I complied with the challenge really well, I used the items twice a day with the expectation of the face wash, but there were at least 3 days I didn’t use any items at all.

Let’s get to the full review then

SPF 30 Anti-Oxidant Day Cream

The SPF 30 Anti-Oxidant Day Cream is formulated with Vitamin C & Green Tea and promises 24hr hydration. More claims include an oil-free formula and no clogged pores. Made without parabens

The day cream has a light texture and it’s slightly thicker than a lotion but I won’t call it a cream (I think creams are thicker and richer). It doesn’t have an overpowering scent but it’s a very pleasant once none the less. I loved the SPF 30 it came with and at a price of only £7.99. I don’t leave a white cast, so I am able to use it alone, on top of the serum. The cream sinks into the skin very quickly and leaves it soft and hydrated with a healthy glow.

Within the 1st two weeks of November when the weather wasn’t too cold, I felt like the day cream provided all day hydration and softness, but in the last two weeks of November when it has much colder, I noticed the cream didn’t quite keep up. I felt my skin looked dry towards the middle/ end of my work day so around 3 or 4pm. It also felt slightly drier too and if I had whiteheads around my chin area, those looked slightly visible too. Retrospectively, I am thinking if it had oils in it, I think it would have performed better.  Because of this, in the last week of using the cream, I topped it off with Babe Balm which I am going to review for BrownBeautyTalk soon.


ProVitamin Overnight Cream

The ProVitamin Overnight Cream contains Green Tea, Vitamin C, E & B5 with no oils, parabens and pore clogging. The texture is very similar to that of the day cream and I won’t necessarily label it as a cream too.

I felt like it doesn’t quite deliver as much hydration as I would like, especially for the winter and for my night time routine. My skin does feel soft and hydrated upon application but after a while, it feels like there isn’t much on the skin. It sinks into the skin quickly and doesn’t clog pores and the oil-free formula means my skin doesn’t look or feel oily/greasy. Again as the day cream, during the first 2 weeks, I found the level of hydration and moisture ok but in the last 2 weeks, it struggled it keep up. I mean my skin wasn’t parched dry in the morning but I could have done with a little bit more moisture.

Balancing Skin Concentrate

This is the main star of the whole collection, promising an improvement in the 5 key signs of healthy skin- skin tone, skin texture, moisture levels, oiliness and radiance.  I used the serum twice a day- before the creams.

The texture is very similar to the creams but much lighter. It doesn’t have the normal oil- like serum consistency but this is like a lighter lotion. I used 2 to 3 pumps for my face and neck. It sinks into the skin very quickly and leaves a healthy glow. I feel like it offers some hydration to the skin. Out of the collection, the balancing skin concentrate is one of my favourites. I have noticed my skin looks brighter and clearer although I haven’t seen much of a difference in my hyperpigmented spots.

For the 5 key signs of healthy skin:

Skin texture– I did notice a good improvement in texture, not that I was suffering from texture issues from before. I noticed my skin was a lot smoother and I didn’t get much texture issues during the month. My pores remained small as well

Skin tone & radiance– I would say my skin looks radiant and healthier but in terms of hyperpigmentation evening out, I won’t say I have noticed a huge difference! I got a spot at the beginning of the month (which I should have left alone but SARAH!) so thanks to that I have a fresh dark mark on my cheeks lol.

Oiliness– this is probably the biggest difference I noticed. My skin feels more balanced. I have normal to combo skin, with an oily tzone and I feel like the serum and helped balance my skin. I am noticing my tzone isn’t as oily during the day, in fact not oily at all. At first, I thought it was due to the cooler weather but I remember my skin been slightly oiler during the day last winter.

Moisture levels- the serum itself doesn’t offer a lot of hydration but when layered with the creams you get a fair amount I would say. Again in the first two weeks of November, this was ok but in the latter part of the month, it struggled to keep up!

Refreshing Face Wash

So the face wash was the least used product but I am still super impressed with it. I love how it leaves my skin after a wash- refreshed without feeling tight or dry. It’s been made without parabens, SLS and fragrance. It also has Green Tea & Vit C and BisabololI pair the face wash with a vanity planet SPS face brush

Overall thoughts

Below is a pic of my skin on Nov 1 and Nov 30. Do you see much of a difference?

Your Good Skin Challenge Full Review

I think the collection is very good although I don’t think it delivers on ALL of the promises it makes (as with most products)

The SPF 30 Anti-Oxidant Day Cream is something I would repurchase only because of its good price point and the high factor SPF you get. It contains Vitamin C which helps brighten the skin (I love Vit C) and compared to the BodyShop Vitamin C daily moisturiser SPF 30, £14.99, this one is much cheaper but the BodyShop one packs more moisture. I would probably use this during the warmer months-spring/summer and layer it underneath/on top on another moisturiser for the colder months. The ProVitamin Overnight Cream was my least fav product and it’s something I would not repurchase. I love rich and thicker creams for night time but this one is very light in texture.

Balancing Skin Concentrate – I love this serum and it’s something I would repurchase but just not right now. It did brighten my skin over time and leave my skin looking healthier. Its £16.99 for a 30ml bottle and I have noticed using it twice a day will last you a little over a month. (1 or 2 days extra). Refreshing Face Wash- an easy and effective face wash and something I would buy again if it was on offer

Your Good Skin Challenge Full Review

I didn’t experience any irritation with any of the products and no texture issues with them. None of them clogged my pores

In conclusion, I think it’s an effective drugstore skincare collection, prices are budget friendly with the most expensive one been the Balancing Skin Concentrate. The collection boasts a lot of promises which it delivers on some and falls short on some.

The challenge was to see if my skin would look visibly healthier in just 28 days, looking at the two pictures I am not sure there is a huge physical difference. But I think it’s a nice serum.

Your Good Skin Challenge Full Review

It’s not a mind-blowing collection but it’s not disappointing either. I think for me it’s 50/50. I will carry on using the face wash, day cream topped with a balm and night cream layered underneath another. The serum I have very little left as it will probably last me two or 3 days in dec. I will use it alone in the morning but will layer it with another serum for night time.

Your Good Skin is exclusive to Boots and currently on offer- buy 1 get one-half price.

Let me know what you think of the collection. Did you try anything? Share your thoughts with me!

Your Good Skin Challenge

Are you ready for Your Good Skin?

Your Good Skin is Boot’s brand new skincare line that has been flying off the shelves since its launch last month. I started seeing ads in my Instagram feed before seeing it stores a bit later on. I guess it’s really exciting as Boots haven’t launched a new skincare collection in quite a while. They did revamp their entire Botanicals range (including the prices) but I’m not sure if they tweaked the formulation too. Of course, their No7 skincare collection is a firm staple and a good contender in the skincare market.

Your Good Skin has some pretty amazing claims. The star of the show, Balancing Skin Concentrate has been clinically proven to improve 5 key signs of healthy-looking skin: skin tone evenness, oiliness, radiance, moisture levels and skin texture. And it does all of this in 28 days! It’s a pretty extensive collection too: cleansers, moisturisers (day and night) and a face mask, there’s a face brush as well! Within the collection, you also get mini collections that target specific skincare concerns: hydrating, mattifying and blemish clearing. The other USP of the new collection is that they co-created Your Good Skin with customers, real-life women tested these out and give their honest opinions (why wasn’t I contacted hmm lol)

Your Good Skin Challenge

Been the skincare junkie I am, I decided to test this 28-day claim.  Both my morning routine and evening routines will be changed. I could have just tried the serum, but I decided to purchase other key items as I know skincare collections have been designed to work together and they would recommend you use other items in the collection to reap FULL benefits.


I picked up the SPF 30 Anti-Oxidant Day Cream and Pro-Vitamin Overnight Cream. The day cream will replace my B. Confident Day Cream (review on Instagram) and Piz Buin SPF50. The Pro-Vitamin Night Cream will replace my AA Face Cream


There is only one serum in the collection, the main show, Balancing Skin Concentrate. This serum is recommended for morning and evening use. It will replace my Boots Botanics All Bright Radiance Concentrate in the mornings and my Alpha Arbutin from the Ordinary and Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution in the evenings.



The Refreshing Face Wash will replace the Boots Botanics Foam Cleanser (I finally finished the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel!)


I will be using these items for the month of November and will review them at the end. This will give me enough time to test out the 28-day claim. The only products I will be switching around will be face masks and toners but I will be sticking to the Superdrug Naturally Radiant 5% Glycolic Acid and if I run out, I will be using Pixi Glow Tonic. I didn’t pick up any of the makeup removers because quite frankly they won’t have much of an impact and I have a lot to get through!

So 1st November, let’s start Your Good Skin challenge, I am super excited! Be sure to follow me on Instagram as I will be giving update periodically. I will try and keep a diary and take pictures too but I will see you on the 30th of November with a full and honest review

Did you pick up anything from the collection? Your Good Skin is available in Boots.


P.S – watch out for my Christmas Gift Guides coming in the next couple of weeks!
