Botanics Skincare

More and more Botanics products are starting to make their way into my bathroom, so it seemed like the right time to feature them on the blog. Botanics are one of Boots' brands, and they make purse-friendly skincare which incorporates plants into its ingredients. Having read Jasmin's post about beauty jargon, I'm not sure how beneficial this is, but their products have all worked for me so far! I've also started to keep even more of an eye on my budget, and where better to start than with skincare?

Botanics skincare

Ultra Calm Skin Calming Night Cream, £6.99 for 50ml 
Hydrating without being too rich or greasy, this night cream has been wonderful — my face usually feels really tight in the morning, but not so much since I've introduced this to my routine. It sinks in quickly, too.

Ultra Calm Gentle Cleansing Cream, £4.49 for 250ml 
This has been working well for me. A soothing but not-too-rich cream, it's gentle on skin, easy to rinse off with a muslin cloth, and a little bit goes a long way — one bottle is going to last me ages.

Ultra Calm Micellar 3-in-1 Cleansing Solution, £3.29 for 250ml
I use this to take off my make up (often as soon as I walk in the door) and it's lovely, particularly with eye make up. I should know by now not to judge products by their appearance but I didn't expect something this gentle to be so good at dissolving my mascara and eyeliner. A couple of swipes with a cotton pad and everything's gone — I no longer wake up with panda eyes.

All Bright Cleansing Toner, £3.99 for 250ml 
I've mentioned this more than once on here, so I promise I won't ramble! I use this toner twice a week and it makes such a difference to clarity of my complexion. Despite containing an AHA, it doesn't irritate, and it leaves skin feeling really smooth. You can read my full review here

Botanics products are often on offer and there are several ranges to choose from, so it's easy to find something that suits.
