Boots Skincare Haul

Boots-Skincare-Haul
I popped into Boots the other day and noticed that the Botanics skincare was on offer (1/3 off, I believe!) so I took that as a message from the gods to purchase some of the bits and bobs everyone’s been raving about. I always thought that the Botanics products were really pricey but it seems I’ve just made that up as everything was really reasonably priced, even before the discount. I’m loving the rebrand too, it all looks so modern and swish and I love the white packaging. I picked up the elusive Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm to see if it will rival Liz Earle or my Ultra Bland cleanser from Lush, I’m yet to try it but once I do I’ll review it. I also picked up the Rosewater Toner which is in a handy spray bottle – is it just me that loves toners that you can just spritz at your face without faffing with cotton pads? I bought this mostly because I made my friend Vicki buy it a couple of weeks ago and it was fab, really refreshing and it smells nice. I then picked up some of the face wipes from Botanics as I needed some new ones in stock for when I’m too tired/lazy to properly remove le make-up, these seem pretty good so far!
From No 7 I picked up the Cleansing Water with my last remaining £5 off voucher (they’re not in action at the mo, boo!). Everyone has been singing the praises of cleansing waters of late so I wanted to give a budget friendly version a go, I’ve not used it yet (as I have no cotton wool left!) but when I do I’ll let you know how it goes!
Have you tried anything from the Botanics/No 7 Skincare ranges at Boots?
Anything I need to look out for next time I’m instore?

  12. girls are more sensitive to skin health conditions. The main reason of the pollution and the dirt, they face on the work or outside the house. Hence extra skin care is required.
