At the end of January I was gifted a selection of sample MooGoo skincare products at the blogger meet I attended (more on this here). I was also lucky enough to meet and chat to Linda and Beth from the brand on the day and they kindly sent me a full sized bottle of Full Cream Moisturiser to add to my collection.
So let me introduce you to MooGoo. The company hails from Australia and
was founded when they recognised that the moisturising udder cream
(yes – I said udder cream!) used on cows in Australian dairy farms also
had a wondrous skin soothing effect on the humans applying it. A non
greasy version for humans was developed and MooGoo was
They have since expanded the range and now specialise in providing solutions for a variety of skincare
problems using all natural
ingredients and no harsh chemicals. Dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne, dermatitis… they’ve got
something to help. With my sensitive skin, I felt that this made them a good match for me and couldn’t wait to give it all a try.
Here’s what I thought:
This is a topical nut oil for regeneration and repair – it’s recommended for acne scarred skin but also has anti ageing properties. I have mixed feelings about this one. The oil is a dark yellowy green colour and the smell is rather off putting – I can’t describe it. However, this is offset by the fact that after applying each evening, I have awoken to smooth skin and less pronounced lines on my forehead. This is something of a wonder to me, as I’ve tried several creams recently that promised to do this and none have had the same effect. Alas, I’m still not sure that I can get past that smell in the long term…

Full Cream Moisturiser
It wouldn’t be a review from me if I didn’t mention the packaging too! Keeping with the dairy theme, the Full Cream Moisturiser comes in a cardboard milk style carton which is just the kind of novelty fun aspect that I really like!
