I was going to write a recommendations list for Good Molecules with my top products, but Good Molecules Have announced a Black Friday Sale (Website Link HERE)
So I thought I would coincide my Blog Post with the Sale in case there was anything you wanted to pick up.
I will be starting with my favourite product from the range and go down from there:
- Caffeine Eye Patches – Good Molecules Website Purchase Link HERE
My FULL Review is HERE
Thoughts: I’ve tried a few Eye patches in my time and my number 1 issue has been that they slide down my face because they’re just so wet and gloopy. To this day, I haven’t had that issue with these patches. They adhere and they’re not so insanely gloopy and messy that the product runs down my cheeks thankfully.
I also like that they’re unscented AND I do think that, because they’re so cold – they do help de-puff the eyes in the AM. Don’t expect dark circles to disappear, but I do find that I look and feel a bit more energised after applying. Personally I don’t keep eye patches on for 15 minutes, I find that a solid 5 minutes is good enough to get the product in.
These are definitely the best eye patches I’ve tried so far but I’m open to trying more!
- The Niacinamide Brightening Toner – Available on the Good Molecules Website HERE
Thoughts: This is thick, it doesn’t ball up but provides really nice thick hydration while delivering some nice brightening ingredients to the skin. This has an adequate % of Niacinamide, I like that other brightening ingredients have been added (not just dependant on the niacinamide to do all the work) and I think especially for those people who are sensitive to Acids and/or low pH products, this could be a nice way to incorporate some pore care and some skin refinement, without increasing the chance of sensitivity/irritation. I genuinely enjoyed this toner and it may be the best product Good Molecules have made?
Once again, no added EO or fragrance, so I enjoyed!

My FULL Review is HERE
My Thoughts: The Texture and consistency of this product was lush. It was thick and fast-absorbing, so I could move onto the next stage of my skincare routine. (Note – this is thinner than the Inkey List’s Niacinamide Booster, Review HERE).
I do think the one issue I had with this was the packaging – the glass dropper bottle wasn’t very good, which is a shame because I liked the juice inside, and who doesn’t love Niacinamide??
It’s a high % of Niacinamide (although I think 5% is adequate enough) with no added EO or fragrance.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum Purchase Link is HERE
My FULL Review is HERE
My Thoughts: I had the same packaging/dropper issue as the Niacinamide BUT – I did like the texture and consistency of this also. It’s thinner than the Niacinamide serum. It’s a good, simple HA serum – but if you watch my video down below on Multi Molecule HA vs a Single Molecular HA – you’ll fiind that this is more on par with the Hada Labo Gokujun Lotion rather than the Premium Lotion.
I’d say go for this if you want a simple HA serum. I didn’t have any balling or pilling issues with this, so that’s nice – as I found the Hada Labo Gokujun Lotion did for me. Once again no EO or fragrance.
If you’re looking for intense hydration though I would say go for a multimolecular HA serum (please see the video below). But they do usually cost more
Rosewater Daily Cleansing Gel Good Molecules Purchase Link HERE
My Thoughts: This smells like rosewater, so if you’re not a fan then stay away. Also don’t expect this to remove heavy-duty makeup. As stated, GM recommend this as a second cleanser (preferably after using a cleansing balm or oil to break down/dissolve makeup). Didn’t seem to sting the eyes. I think dehydrated skins will find this stripping and I’d recommend a cream cleanser instead like the Squalane Cleanser from the Ordinary or the Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk. But I think if you like the smell of rosewater and like a foaming cleanser that isn’t too stripping, you may enjoy this!
I.e Oily skins could enjoy this (pH of 5.5).
The best thing about this I find is the packaging, nice glass bottle and I love the screw open and close top. Note: More Info + my thoughts are in the video!!
Instant Cleansing Balm – Available on the Good Molecules Website HERE
Youtube Video – Swatching + Also Testing Makeup Removal!
This does contain EO so if you enjoy a cleansing balm smelling nice, then you may enjoy this. Personally I’m not a fan of any smells, but it’s quite hard to find this with cleansing balms I find?
I HAVE NOT USED THIS IN MY ROUTINE YET BUT IT LOOKS PROMISING!:
Discolouration Correcting Serum: Purchase Link HERE
(Instagram Post Below) – You can see what the serum looks like + I also wrote information of the product on the Post!
Thoughts: This basically contains an ”advanced” form Tranexamic acid which apparently may make it more effective than regular tranexamic acid? I think this may be interesting if you’ve got some pigmentation and want to supplement a routine if you already use vitamin C or Retinol?
I would caution that it does take time for pigmentation to go. Nice that this doesn’t contain EO or fragrance.
I HAVE NOT USED THIS IN MY ROUTINE YET BUT – THIS MAY BE GOOD FOR VERY SENSITIVE SKINS
Pineapple Powder – Available on the Good Molecules Website HERE
Youtube Video: Swatch + Review!
I really like gentle exfoliants as opposed to really high % and intensely acidic products – so this is something I would definitely use. The one drawback is that I wish it was in a serum/liquid-type format rather than a powder, because it’s just an extra step having to dispense powder, add water and then rub onto the face. I hope Good molecules perhaps release a Pineapple Exfoliating Serum in the future!
I do get what they were going for – much like the Enzyme cleanser from Wishtrend – this provides a much more gentle alternative to physical exfoliating scrubs as this provides gentle powder exfoliation.
I do appreciate that they have put a lot of other product in a bottle as you may end up using quite a lot to get the kind of consistency/texture/paste you want!
Also I really appreciate that this doesn’t contain EO or Fragrance – as it’s especially important, I find, not to have these when exfoliating to reduce the risk of irritation.

My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
