Mini Review: Goop Beauty Goopglow Microderm Exfoliator.

By: Jen Shoop

One of my favorite beauty discoveries this year has been Goop Beauty’s Goopglow Microderm Exfoliator, and I know many of you have asked me for a review. I was, frankly, influenced to try this clean skincare product because so many Magpies had raved about it over the past year or two. One of you said: “I love it so much I always buy a back-up for my back-up.” If that doesn’t equal desert island beauty product status, I don’t know what does.

After testing thoroughly, I found that Goopglow stands up to the hype. This is my favorite product to use when I need a quick turnaround in my skin, whether I wake up feeling meh after poor sleep or a late night out with friends, or I am prepping to head out for the evening and want to start with a clean, clear, bright canvas. Goopglow is both a chemical and physical exfoliant, meaning that its gritty texture physically polishes and smooths skin while its ingredients (microexfoliating minerals plus glycolic acid) work simultaneously work their magic. I love the way my skin feels after — soft and squeaky clean — and at the same time, radiant. Two other notes: I like the whipped consistency, which makes it easy to apply to skin (some exfoliating masks are too dense/sticky to smear on with ease), and think many readers will appreciate that it is odorless. (I personally enjoy a well-scented product, but can also see the virtues of scent-free products for sensitive skin / noses.)

TL;DR: you need this product in your toolkit. I use it at least twice a week, whenever I feel like my skin needs a glow boost, and loved it so much that I bought the mini version to keep in my travel cosmetic bag (some chic cosmetics bags here).

My other favorite Goop products: their Vitamin C serum and their peptide serum. I use both daily after washing with a gentle cleanser (I am currently using and loving Biossance’s formula), and before I apply moisturizer or SPF.

  1. I can appreciate an odorless product! I might just have to try the goop glow.

    I’ve also heard good things about her scalp exfoliator/mask. Have you tried it or heard similar? I have very fine hair, so I’m always looking for solutions.

    1. I LOVE the hair scrub. So, so good — I got really into that one and the Christophe Robin one (both very similar — I’d say they basically tie in terms of results, feel, etc) over the summer, when I really felt I need to scrub the scalp with all the SPF, sweat, chlorine, etc!
