Meet Goodbye Skincare


Meet Goodbye, the skincare brand with a difference.

Goodbye was developed by American-born Becky Cashman over 20 years ago when she visited New Zealand.

Inspiration hit while she was working as an outdoor guide in the South Island.

The company’s first success was Goodbye SANDFLY.

How It All Began

Becky met her Kiwi husband (then boyfriend) John when they were working as raft guides in Nepal in 1996. While visiting John in New Zealand she met her first sandfly on the West Coast of the South Island. It was the first of many and after meeting thousands more Becky formulated Goodbye SANDFLY.



Goodbye SANDFLY is a certified organic repellant and soother. In a base of sweet almond oil, it uses eucalyptus, lavender, pine, manuka, tea tree and lemongrass essential oils. It’s simple, effective and smells great. A proven success it still forms the foundation of the company. In fact, bottles of Goodbye SANDFLY were guest favours at Becky and John’s wedding in 1999.

Since then Goodbye OUCH Manuka Balm and Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm have joined the lineup. Together they deal with realities of skincare including sunburn, chapped lips, dry patches, cuts, scrapes, stings.

Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm is a high performance, broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen. It meets the ASNZ 2604:2012 standard, is rich in antioxidants and contains peppermint, olive, jojoba, cocoa butter and coconut oils. This formulation will do right by the ocean AND your skin.

Goodbye OUCH Manuka Balm for Happy Lips and Skin is fondly called ‘the little one’. Made with plant-based ingredients such as apricot, avocado, jojoba and raspberry seed oils along tea tree, eucalyptus, manuka, frankincense and geranium. The balm also contains certified organic beeswax from Goodbye’s beekeeper Reece.

Tip: Goodbye OUCH Manuka Balm is brilliant for eczema.


Every product in the range is certified organic and holds the esteemed NATRUE certification. NATRUE is an international benchmark for authentic natural products.

1% For The Planet

An important part of Goodbye’s ethos is generosity and giving back to the world. To this end, the company has committed to giving at least one per cent of their turnover to non-profit support. “We chose 1% for the planet because it is so much more powerful to work as a collective and attract people and businesses to participate,” says Becky. As part of that initiative, they’ve been working with OceansWatch, a worldwide organisation based in Whangarei.


Exciting news. Every subscriber to 40+ or 55+ – including new and existing – will receive a FREE 12g tin of Goodbye OUCH Manuka Balm for Lips and Skin with their order.

This offer will run from 12.01 am Wednesday 6th January 2021 until 11:59 pm Friday 5th February 2021 (while stocks last).

This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.


Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
