I’ve recently been reviewing four products from the Boots Botanics Skincare range. Inspired by nature and regularly given 5* reviews on the Boots website I was keen to give them a go. The Botanics experts work with the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew and choose particular ingredients for their products. I have been reviewing the following products:
Boots Botanics All Bright Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution
“This cleaning solution feels as gentle as water on the skin, to dissolve make up, unclog pores and remove impurities. Skin feels toned and smooth in one easy step.”
Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream
“A hydrating day cream moisturiser, with SPF15 protection, that brightens and protects. It hydrates for 24 hours and is enriched with brightening hibiscus to leave your skin feeling radiant.”
Boots Botanics All Bright Purifying Scrub
“Buff away impurities with the Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub, to reveal brighter skin. Enriched with brightening hibiscus, it is suitable for all skin types.”
Boots Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm
“Create radiant, glowing skin instantly with Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm. This revitalising balm works to provide skin with an instant pick-me-up effect, promoting a brighter, fresher and more radiant complexion that lasts all day long. The Botanics All Brighton Radiance Balm provides skin with a subtle glow.”
During reviewing these products I stopped using my own skincare collection and used the Boots range instead. My morning routine has consisted of using the Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution at the start of the day. I think this is fairly gentle on the skin and it certainly makes my skin feel clean, toned and smooth as claimed. I’d apply the cleansing solution with cotton wool and no rinsing is required. I’d then use the All Bright Hydrating Day Cream which was my favourite product out of ones I was sent. It has a lovely smell of hibiscus and has a very subtle affect on the skin. My skin can appear too oily with certain creams but this is very light and thin and is a perfect consistency for a day cream, leaving me feeling very refreshed!
My next step was applying the All Bright Radiance Balm to my face. Initially, I applied this over my whole face but after using it a few times I thought the glow looked better on just my cheeks. This is a good cream to reapply during the day if needed. I used these products every morning and enjoyed all three as part of my morning routine. I also used the Boots Botanics All Bright Purifying Scrub 2-3 times a week to buff away any flaky skin. All the products left a nice and gentle feeling on my skin and I’m happy to continue using them in the future.
In terms of price, the products I reviewed are all between £3.99- £4.99 which I think is very reasonable and affordable. Boots are currently offering up to 50% off on selected items in the Botanics skincare range. There is also an organic version of products. See the Boots website for more details.
Thanks to Boots for sending the above products for the purpose of the review. All opinions are my own.
