This Australian skincare brand, founded by a former beauty editor, is all about simple products that work -- even with pure, plant-derived ingredients. The clean, cruelty-free line, which includes a cleanser, sunscreen, their bestselling facial oil and more, works to nourish and strengthen the skin without irritating it.
Fashion influencer, creative director, and entrepreneur, Chriselle Lim is the definition of a modern self-made woman. Here, from her content studio CINC, she joins Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to reveal her everyday essentials for skin care, postpartum recovery, and more.
For most of her career, Zoë Foster Blake was on a mission to find the best beauty products, first as beauty director at legacy media titles such as Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar Australia, and then through her own sites: a blog called fruitybeauty in 2006 and Primped in 2008. In 2014, after years of reviewing and recommending, she wanted to create something of her own and launched skincare line Go-To.
Go-To Exfoliating Swipeys. Exfoliating pads, sometimes called peel pads, are an effective and convenient mode of chemical exfoliation. These cotton pads come pre-soaked in a solution of lactic acid and soothing aloe vera, which contains vitamins C and E, along with beta-carotene to improve skin hydration.
Go-To Very Useful Face Cream ($31): Whether your skin needs a little post-flight or post-pool pick-me-up, this all-natural face cream will do the trick. It's packed with antioxidants, nourishing oils, and shea butter, but it's still lightweight enough to wear every day. Very Useful, indeed.

Like most people, I love a skin-care routine that's simple, yet effective. I've been in love with the brand Go-To for a while now, but it wasn't until recently that I started using the brand's Exfoliating Swipeys more frequently. I've been dealing with random breakouts, and when I use these at night, I notice a difference in the morning after. It helps that they smell so, so good (like oranges!) and feel cooling and refreshing on my skin. I'm tempted to use them every day, but exfoliating too much is never a good idea, so I stick to these twice a week.
There's nothing fancy about the straightforwardly-named Lips, the lip balm from Go-To Skincare, an Aussie brand. It's everything I want out of a lip product: moisturizing (thanks to shea butter), softening (courtesy of vitamins A and E), and long-lasting (thanks to medical-grade lanolin). Itâ€™s become my go-to product for workdays, since I can swipe on a coat in the morning without worrying about reapplying â€˜til lunch.
The Exceptionoil is kind of like the hybrid of a balm and an oil. It has a more solid texture but melts instantly on your skin. Since it is heavier, it's great when your skin is really dry and you want something to linger, or it's good for targeting rough spots like elbows, knees, and cuticles. Plus, it smells like fresh jasmine.
