Botanics at Boots

Boots have just re-launched their Botanics range and I was interested to have a look recently when in the store. The new packaging looks a lot better than before and shows images of flowers as it is working with Kew Botanic Gardens using plant extracts in the products. They have an amazing collection with 5 ranges from Radiant Youth Skincare, Organic, Ultra Calm, Shine Away and All Bright. I chose the Shine Away Mattifying Gel Cream which I wasn't planning on buying but they were doing 3 for 2 and I had already picked up a couple of other bits and thought I'd give it go. I have quite oily skin and I haven't seemed to find something that controls it very well, until now.

It claims it will help tighten pores and reduce imperfections, as well as hydrating the skin and leaving it feeling matte. I can feel it tightening slightly but haven't noticed much difference with my pores yet but it definitely hydrates and leaves skin feeling so soft and banishes shine!

This product contains Willowbark which is a natural clarifier. I'm not sure if it is the Willowbark but the smell of the gel is really nice and reminds me of the smell of tea - strange but I like tea so I don't mind. You only need to apply a small amount of this as a little really does go a long way. I tend to only use it at night after cleansing because I tried it before applying make-up and could feel it all turning into a rubbery texture and peeling off! Plus you'll get more benefits from it by letting it soak in for a long while.

The great thing about this product is it only costs £4.99 but at the moment you can save a 1/3 and it is only £3.33 which is such a bargain!
