If you’ve read about Goop and wondered what its products are like: read this. Gwyneth Paltrow’s
high performing yet natural beauty line is filled with hidden treasures that focus on enhancing
your natural glow. From moisturisers to serums, see this as your crib sheet on how to get
started on that GP radiance.
This has been a clear GOOP bestseller here at MECCA. “It’s one of my favourites, and the
results are instantaneous,” founder Gwyneth Paltrow
tells MECCA and the customer reviews echo the sentiment. And as the name suggests, it’s
a microdermabrasion facial in a jar with both physical and chemical exfoliants. The texture is
thick and mousse-like, polishing and smoothing skin without causing microtears for immediate
glow whilst also strengthening the skin barrier.
Paltrow again looked to professional treatments for inspiration – this one is inspired by
professional chemical peels that refine and retexturise the skin so we can wake up looking less
morning-blergh, more glowy. “We don’t call it the GOOPGLOW collection for nothing!” as she says.
Glycolic acid is the smallest naturally occurring AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) so it gets absorbed
even deeper and faster than its counterparts. Use this one once a week to whisk away dead skin
cells and to encourage cell regeneration while making skin smoother and look healthier.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s skincare tips and favourite Goop products
With many brands offering vitamin C and hyaluronic serums separately, Goop combines our two
favourites to make this a must for the mornings (and don’t forget to apply your
SPF afterwards). Vitamin C serums are notoriously difficult to stabilise making the
texture difficult to handle, but trust us when we say this formula is one of the best ones out
there; it’s thinner so makes it far easier than its counterparts to spread over your
face. You’ll see results from this powerful serum in the long run.
Described as a “supercream” by Paltrow herself, this whipped butter balm of a face cream does it
all. Packed with plant-based actives and adaptogens to plump the skin, improve firmness,
elasticity, radiance and glow, a little goes surprisingly a long way. Its balm-like texture sets
it apart from other daily moisturisers and absorbs into the skin incredibly quickly.

This eye cream replenishes dry skin under the eye with plant-based actives and adaptogens like
Schisandra berry which is used in traditional Chinese and Kampo medicine, to replenish dry skin
under the eye. The eye cream also has arjuna, an Indian herbal astringent and knotgrass extract
to protect the skin from UV and infrared damage as well as Persian silk tree extract to support
cell energy and target signs of ageing or tired skin.
