At the beginning of the month I was looking for a new cleanser and toner and I bought some from the Botanics range at Boots. I have been using them every morning and night and I can say that I really like them. The whole range is developed with Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and they have a range of their products that are a high percentage of or entirely organic. This is the range the cleanser and toner are from. Just to note I have oily/combination skin and tend to get an oily T-zone.
Botanics Softening Cleanser - £4.99 currently £3.33 (250ml)
This is 82% organic and has ingredients such as nourishing rosehip, which is a rich source of Omega oil and keeps skin soft, as well as many plant and fruit oils. This cleanser is very easy to use and you simple massage it onto dry skin and gently remove with a cotton wool pad. The product has a lovely smell and is a creamy consistency, just like cleansing milk. This doesn’t feel like it dries out your skin at all and feels light and not oily. This also removes all of my make-up very well.
I like this as it really does leave skin feeling smooth and supple and you don’t have to worry about washing your face; although I often like to splash my face with water afterwards.
Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz - £4.99 currently £3.33 (150ml)
This toner is 100% organic and doesn’t contain many ingredients other than rosewater. This is really refreshing on your face after cleansing and you can feel a very slight tightening on the skin. This comes in a spray bottle and to apply you just spray over your face and neck then remove with a cotton pad. The only downside with this and it can go everywhere when you spray it, but this can be avoided by spraying it on a cotton pad first. This product also really helps to remove the last traces of dirt after using the cleanser.
After hearing a lot about the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and not being tempted to part with the cash for a water based spritz, this product is seems like a good, inexpensive alternative.
I also use the Shine Away Mattifying Gel of an evening as part of this routine which I also love. You can see my review on it here.
I am really impressed with these products and would recommend them to anyone looking for a new cleanser and toner. I feel my skin looks much more fresh and radiant after using these and they are well worth it for the price!
