Affordable Skincare, The Boots Botanics Skincare Range

botanics bootsTrying drugstore skincare has been top of my to-do list for a little while so when Boots Botanics asked if I wanted to try their range I had to say yes, as I’ve heard great things in the past and seen it pop up in endless magazines as one of the best affordable skincare botanicsI’ve had issues with Micellar waters in the past but the Boots Botanics All Bright Micellar 3 in 1 cleansing solution was one of the best I’ve tried. It’s great at removing my makeup without stripping my skin, which I find a lot of other micellar waters do. I’m a wash-off cleanser lover and that probably won’t change any time soon but I love having a micellar water which works in my stash. This one can be used on the face, eyes and lips, which I find to be really useful. It has hibiscus to help boast brightness and AHAs to work as a mid botanics oil botanics boots oilThe Boots Botanics Smoothing Facial Oil is a product I wish I’d found sooner as it really helps add moisture to my dehydrated skin and helps add the natural glow I am always after but it can be used on any skin type. It has purple orchid, which helps skin replenish resulting in softer, suppler skin. Since my skin does need extra moisture I found the Boots Botanics Radiant Youth Super Serum to really add an intensive boost to my skin. It’s packed with antioxidants, which helps skin look younger and Ginkgo with is apparently ‘nature’s most trusted protectors’, helping fight free radicals and environmental stress. There’s also a Triple Age renewal Hydrating Eye Serum with hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C & E- ideal for anyone worried about the first signs of ageing.

I’ve been really into eye makeup remover this year and have found the Botanics Smoothing Eye Make Up Remover to be really comparable to high-end brands. It needs a good shake before you use it but it removes even waterproof makeup effortlessly without stinging my sensitive botanics brushI also can’t end this review without telling you about their facial brush! We’ve all seen the super expensive electric facial brushes which I actually often find too harsh but the Botanics Facial Brush (which is just £6!) has been a great addition to my routine. I don’t use it daily but always incorporate it in my pamper routine, it’s super soft and therefore exfoliates the skin very gently. I usually team it with my cleanser, gently massaging in circular motions and find it to be both effective and relaxing.

Overall I have loved the Botanics range, I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and have found my skin to be more hydrated and bright. I’ve even spotted the Bath & Body care range, which I’ll be picking up soon!

    I have a few bits from Botanics, and I’ve enjoyed the products I’ve tried (Micellar water, exfoliator and I’m currently using a cleanser) and I’m impressed with the brand. It’s on offer a lot too which is a bonus.

    I’m using their eye makeup remover at the moment. The bi-phase concept is something I’m new to, so I wasn’t sure at first but it’s actually really good! I really like the sound of the oil!

    I love micellar waters, and I think I need to try this one. It sounds good, and I need a really serious one to remove my really serious liner, hahaha.

    I haven’t tried this range either but it always catches my eye, yet I’ve never really read many reviews about it! Definitely interested in trying the Oil, my skin seems to love a good facial oil!

    I use Boots Botanics! Love their skincare! They have just brought out a new 81% Organic with Rosehip, 24 hour hydration, it is a few pounds more expensive but has some lovely ingredients in it! My other favorite is their Aqua Gel Hydration (blue box), and their eye make up remover is fab! I’m yet to try the body products though!
