It’s the beauty product that’s been slowly drip-fed across our IG feeds over the past few months, but today’s the day we can all, finally, get our hands on Go-To Skincare’s Zincredible SPF.
Zoe Foster Blake’s famed Go-To range has been busily flying the flag for Australian beauty products, hooking us (and the rest of the world) on a unique brand of self-deprecating realness paired with products that actually do what they say they will. (And we need say nothing about the gorgeous millennial pink packaging…).
So, Zincredible SPF—let’s talk.
Aside from the 3000+ wait list that automatically catapults it to one of the hottest skincare items of 2018, there’s good reason everyone’s kind of lost their shit for something as mundane as a facial SPF.
Firstly, It’s ZFB. We love her and all that she does. But does that a good product make? On this occasion yes, actually.
Blake’s made no secret of the exacerbated timeline to get this product off the ground, discussing the process in detail on her personal Instagram account. “I submitted the first product brief […] in May 2014. It’s been over three years and well over 100 versions thus far”.
Her exacting standards and award-winning pharmaceutical team behind Go-To are responsible for the cult classic Face Hero facial oil and the Transformazing sheet face mask. This team know that a good facial SPF (particularly a zinc-base blend) needs to tick three pretty big boxes if it’s going to have legs in market: 1. no white residue, 2. no sticky feeling, 3. mustn’t be drying.
And guess what? Zincredible totally nailed the checklist‚ and then some.
A blend of highly moisturising day cream and zinc oxide (a physical barrier for those pesky UV rays), it’s not only super nourishing (packed with fatty acids and vitamin E) it’s also protecting your face from IR completely transparent on your skin, ensuring your face is totally protected—minus the chalkiness.
Fun fact; Zincredible also has no chemical UV filters, silicones, sulphates parabens or synthetics, making it the ideal SPF for those of you out there with sensitive skin. Let’s just say that Zincredible, is actually incredible and leave it at that.
In probably the best news of all, it’s just been restocked online and is available right here.
