Last week, Go-To skincare absolutely destroyed the internet with the release of their long-awaited, much-anticipated SPF moisturiser: Zincredible.
In everyone’s haste to buy the product during its initial release, both the Go-To app and website shut down because of too much traffic. That’s how in demand the product was!
Zincredible was in production for four years, and for good reason! When creating any product with SPF, it’s super important to absolutely nail it. Otherwise people simply won’t wear it or buy it, which is nothing short of a disaster for a cosmetics company.
I have been an avid Go-To wearer from the get-go. I’ve tried every single facial skincare product from the brand and loved every one. So I bought Zincredible with 100% faith that it was going to be a hit. And once again, your girl was right.
Zoe Foster-Blake, you have bloody nailed this product. In every way possible.
The moisturiser feels slightly thicker than it’s big sister, the Very Useful Face Cream (VUFC), but don’t let that deter you. I apply three pumps to my face, and it covers my face, neck, and most of my chest too. In the words of Queen Zoe, “your face stops at your boobs”. So your moisturiser should cover you from forehead to boobs. This also prevents signs of premature aging in your neck and chest. Sounds bizarre, but hear me out. One telltale sign of aging is crepey skin around your neck, and the usual culprit, wrinkles. Moisturising will definitely help prevent all that.
Here’s the order you should be applying your products for maximum effect and the best skin:
- Cleanser (double cleanse if you’re wearing makeup or slept in your makeup; we’ve all been there, no judgement here).
- Face Oil/Serums
The product is being sold in a 50 mL tube with a pump applicator. This is a little different from VUFC which just comes in a squeezy tube (that’s its scientific name, look it up I dare you). If the lack of product is stopping you from buying it, don’t let it! As someone that travels a lot and likes to have a moisturiser on the plane, I quite like that it’s only 50 mLs. As someone with ultra dry and acne-prone skin, planes and travel destroy any good progress I’ve made with my skin. Having a little, travel friendly moisturiser that won’t get confiscated in customs for being too big is ideal.
This year, the brand released VUFC in a larger, 100mL tub for a little variety. I like my 50 mL Zincredible, but definitely wouldn’t be opposed to a larger option in the future.
What was a surprise to me was that the Zinc actually makes a great primer too. Upon application, the product is a little tacky to the touch, but not to the extent that it’s uncomfortable or gross. My chin is my worst enemy for makeup application. My makeup gaps it right off my chin within an hour or two of applying foundation and concealer. But not with Zincredible! My makeup stays on, and even with a matte foundation, gives a glossy sheen that doesn’t look too oily or greasy. By the end of the day, my mascara is usually running down to my boobs, and I only have one eyebrow still on, but my foundation? That sh*t doesn’t budge.
Just remember: SPF moisturiser should be saved for daytime. Your skin doesn’t need protection from the sun when you’re fast asleep, you goose. Daytime = SPF. Nighttime = no SPF. Simples!
Like Ryan Gosling in The Notebook, Zincredible is a solid ten. Even from the opinion of an incredibly biased, dry-skinned, acne-despising, OG Go-To fan, this moisturiser is pretty much everything you could want in a skincare product. So get shopping!
