Gwyneth Paltrow’s skin secret: This best-selling ‘facial in a jar’ will give you an instant glow

The aptly named ‘ Goop Glow ‘ has been dubbed a ‘facial in a jar’ by Gwyneth, who said her skin is ‘softer, smoother, and more luminous afterward’

A best-selling $60 exfoliator beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow is flying off shelves after fans claimed they were waking up with a radiant glow hours after use.

The aptly named ‘Goop Glow’ has been dubbed a ‘facial in a jar’ by Gwyneth, who said her skin is ‘softer, smoother, and more luminous afterward’.

‘The results are instantaneous,’ she said. ‘After just a few minutes, it polishes away roughness and smooths uneven texture, revealing a glowing complexion.’ 

The best-selling Goop buy, which is founded by the 49-year-old Hollywood star, promises a physical and chemical exfoliation thanks to its air-whipped dual-action microdermabrasion formula. 

'The results are instantaneous,' she said. 'After just a few minutes, it polishes away roughness and smooths uneven texture, revealing a glowing complexion'

Designed to polish skin, smooth uneven texture, and reveal a healthy-looking, glowing complexion, the formula is packed with a blend of four powerful micro-exfoliating minerals (quartz, garnet, alumina, and silica). 

It also contains glycolic acid, which sweeps away dry, dead skin cells and refines the appearance of pores for skin that is visibly softer and smoother.

The paraben-free formula also contains Australian Kakadu plum which helps improve skin luminosity; it has 100 times more vitamin C than an orange.

The product also did incredibly well during consumer studies, with 92 per cent of women showing improvement in skin barrier function – one of the most important barometers of skin health – after just one use.

She also swears by a combination of nightly Japanese whisky, paraben-free products, daily exercise, good sleep and a predominantly ‘clean’ diet.

‘I certainly don’t eat clean for every meal – I love French fries and Japanese whisky – I [do, however] find that wholefoods are transformative for my energy levels and good skin,’ Gwyneth said previously, adding that she has a small amount of the whisky every night.
