Beach Cottage Beauty Cows Udders and Moo Goo
Fri 10th, Feb, 2012
Yah, Beach Cottage Girls, hello, how the devil are you?
Wanna talk Beach Cottage beauty?
So, I am again blogging by the sea…this time I am sitting in a cafe having a coffee…a lovely Sydney’s Summer’s day, sunhine blue skies and big old lungfuls of sea air.
This my friends is taking my blogging to a new level. I have to say that I love blogging, the bit I didn’t like was the bit in the house doing the uploading of the post, so this little gadget, that slips quite nicely thank you very much into my handbag has changed my life.
This then is Beach Cottage Seaside Blogging. The Dream.
Anyway, if you are a beach cottage club member, you will know that I found a new skin cream recently that has about rocked my wold.
http://www.moogoo.com.au/Yep these products with a cow on the front are doing some fine things to my face.
And one of them is my new fave budget moisturizer . Actually forget the budget part. I don’t care how much it is.
Now ladies, before we go on, I am not being sponsored for this post, but I blooming wish I were! As you know I don’t blog about stuff to you girls out there unless I love it. If Moo Goo though, in their wisdom, were to say, send me a huge bag of goodies to try out, in the name of this blog, I would oblige them with pleasure that is for sure.
So this started, when, if you remember a few weeks ago I got sunburned lips. Silly pommie girl.
I was in a lot of pain and a couple of Beach Cottage readers including the lovely Fleur(she’s new to Blogland, and blogging from the beach, Sunny Noosa style, go show her some blog love, mentioned she adored Moo Goo’s products and lip balm. Moo Who?
Yep Moo Goo, an Australian brand that is taking the world by storm, adapted from a product used to treat cows udders and keep them in good condition for milking.
So I googled the life out of Moo Goo, to be honest, though I love me a beauty product, I have drawers full of them and so these days I am pretty choosy on what I spend Mr Beach Cottage’s money on ;-)
Oh and I have done them all. There was a long time where Chanel and only Chanel skincare sat on my vanity. Dabbled with Clinque for a while and Clarins definitely had a stint too. But really, nowadays I plump for simple, no fuss, stuff…it’s always been the best for me and in recent years, thanks to the Beach Cottage Facebook girls, it’s all been about the original Oil of Olay and, don’t shudder please, Vaseline.
Until now that is.
Enter a cow and her udders.
No, it hasn’t performed a miracle. No I do not look forty is the new twenty….no I am not twirling around a baton, floating down the beach and glowing with my new found skin product.
Something has changed. And I like it.
When I first tried this, I coudn’t believe it, the Full Cream seemed to sink into my skin like it was meant to be there all of my life.
That was before bed, about a month ago and in the morning my skin felt amazing.
Not only could I not believe it, I couldn’t understand why. I kept going back and forth between peering at my skin and peering at the ingredients on the back of the bottle.
It not only felt different, it looked different too, but I am not sure how!
My skin felt amazing, which in turn has made me feel good about it, which is no mean feat.
So in my work as beauty editor for this forty is the new thirty real girl’s blog, I decided to test this for a month before I blasted the world with my under $20 skin discovery. Moo Goo, where have you been all my life?
I literally can’t leave the house without Full Cream on my face nowadays.
Doing some real girl experimenting in the name of this blog then, I have discovered that layering this stuff lightly…3 to 4 applications after some serious exfoliation is like a big-time DIY face treatment right there in the bedroom of your old beach cottage.
It leaves skin feeling divine!
So, after the results with this I tried the anti-aging cream, which is nice too, the lip balm is good, but not as good as my fave Lanolips & Blistex ointment.
The soap is lovely and with this as my cleanser followed by the Full Cream, I am laughing my way out of the beautician’s front door, with a big old wad in my back pocket.
You can find Moo Goo here, shipping from a shiny happy little place they call Down Under people, plus Moo Goo subsidizes shipping worldwide, so it’s low baby low, even if you are on the other side of the world.
If your forty is the new thirty skin needs ahem a little bit of kindness I can highly recommend a cow, her udder and her cream that’s been rubbed on it ;-)…tell ‘em the girl on the beaches with the happy skin sent you.
See you next time. Sat Club is on tomorrow ladies, get yourself some Beach Cottage Me Time…oh and the Newsletter is going out soon, so if you haven’t signed up get to it.
Over and out.
