There's pretty much nothing that can compare to the effectiveness of a single oil in your beauty routine, whether that includes smoothing drops of argan on your split ends or patting marula on a dry face. Except, of course, a product that combines all of the good-for-you oils into one. Enter: Goe Oil, a semi-solid combination of 28 different oils and butters derived from plants, fruits, and flowers.
This fast-absorbing, all-natural balm earned itself a permanent spot in our routines upon first use. It's great on sensitive, freshly shaven legs, rough patches, and split ends, and can even be used as a makeup remover. We've been coating ourselves in it from head to toe and have been enjoying skin that's overall softer and more even-toned. A little bit goes a long way — we've been relying on just one tube for months, and haven't even made a dent in it.
As for which oils and butters in particular are in this product, it's a mix of the familiar (avocado, grapeseed, rosehip) and the under the radar (cupuaçu, palmarosa, meadowfoam seed). It has a light, earthy scent that comes from Tahitian monoi oil, and relies on chamomile and calendula to calm irritation while a high percentage of jojoba is used to hydrate and protect.
Goe Oil is particularly great for summer, since the formula is much lighter than a body butter but still takes care of our skin's needs. How did we last so long without it?
