Hello my little buttons!
As I have run out of cleanser toner and moisturiser I decided a trip to boots was in order, so with the kids in tow off we went. I wasn’t sure whether to buy my usual or try something new, so I had an open mind. New skin care is risky business as you don’t know how your skin will react but being the spontaneous dare devil I am, I put back my trusted garnier micellar water and was drawn to the Boots Botanics ‘the Power of Plants’ range. Which also happened to be half price! On further expecting I saw that the whole range has been developed with Kew Royal Botanical Gardens with ingredients that have been proven to work.
The first thing I chose was the Micellar 3 IN 1 Cleansing Brightening Solution BRIGHT. It claims to dissolve makeup, unclog pores and remove impurities. It contains brightening hibiscus and is alcohol, soap and fragrance free. Half price it was £2.24 so if it’s not fantastic I won’t be too disappointed.
I recently review a mango face wash (click here to read) which sadly stinks of soap so I don’t really enjoy using it. I thought I’d try the Cleansing Foam Wash too, half price this was £1.99.
Ive been needing a daycream with Spf and was happy to see the Botanics range day cream has spf 15, not the highest but it’s better than nothing. Half price this was £2.49.
I couldn’t find a toner in the range so I’m guessing it had sold out, instead I chose Boots fragrance free Simply Sensitive Refreshing Gentle Toner with aloe vera. It was priced at £1.99.
I really should of stopped there but 2 more items caught my eye. The first being a Botanics Microdermabrasion Polish RADIENT YOUTH which banashes dull skin for Renewed Radiance with protective ginkgo. I’m hoping this will really give my skin a good clearing out as with the heat wave we’ve been having my skins not looking that great, it’s been worse but it’s been better. Half price this cost £3.99.
The last item I bought which I’ve wanted since I first saw it advertised, L’oreal Pure Clay. It purifies while mattifying the skin with 3 pure clays and eucalyptus. The pot contains 10 applications and was on offer for £5 which means each mask only costs 50p! I love clay masks they do wonders for my skin and I’ve really missing using them.
I also bought a spiderman toothbrush and toothpaste but didn’t think that would of been an overly interesting read! Hope you enjoyed this haul, my next blog post will be a superdrug haul! Have a great weekend.
