Boots Botanics Review

So Boots have recently given their Botanics range a makeover. The packaging has all changed, and a whole host of new products have emerged. Boots Botanics is a brand that is focused on using natural organic ingredients in skincare products. In fact, the products are developed with Kew Royal Botanic Gardens.
So, Boots have introduced all of these new products as lower introductory prices, so I thought I'd buy a few bits to try out whilst they're still on offer.
I bought the Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm, Rosewater Toning Spritz and the All Bright Hydrating Day Cream.
The Rosewater Toning Spritz was £3.33, and will be £4.99 after the offer. This toner claims to 'Enliven your senses and refresh your skin'. The only other toners I've really used is Tea Tree water from Lush, which is in a similar spray bottle. I've been using this a lot, after cleansing and I am really enjoying it. It does feel lovely on your skin and you get 150ml, which for the price you pay is amazing.
The Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm was the product I was most excited to try as I've never used a hot cloth cleanser. This was out of stock in several Boots stores that I've been into, and when I picked this one up it was the last one, so I can tell it's pretty popular. The packaging says that the product 'draws out impurities and cleanses and smoothes'. I love this. I've been using it morning and evening since I bought it, after using a clearasil face wash to get my skin extra clean. It smells natural, and it has a vaseline-type consistency, and after I've massaged it over my face it looks like I have just smeared petroleum jelly over my face, but it feels lovely on the skin. The packaging says to soak the muslin cloth (which is provided in the box) in hot/warm water and use it as a warm compress over the face to draw out impurities. I do this several times and then polish the remaining balm off with the cloth. The box also says to then soak the cloth in cold water and put it over your face to close your pores, but I like to skip this step and just spritz on the Rosewater toner instead. I love this product, every time I use it I feel like I'm giving myself a mini-facial and my skin feels lovely after using it. This is £5.99 at the moment, and will be priced at £8.99, so if I were you I'd go and buy whilst it's still so cheap! :)

This day cream claims to hydrate the skin for 24hours. It has SPF of 15 in it, which is great, as I never ever buy a day cream/moisturiser unless it has SPF in it. It has brighening Hibiscus flower, which is brightening on the skin as it has naturally occuring AHA's in it which act as gentle exfoliators to smooth and brighten the skin. I have used this twice now and I like it. The cream is a pinky colour, and it smells nice, I don't know if that's the Hibiscus flower in it. I can't say I've noticed a massive difference on the skin brightening, but I do think that it is very good for keeping my skin hydrated, as my skin doesn't feel nearly as dry as it usually does hours after using moisturiser. This is £3.33 at the moment, and will be £4.99. There is also a matching Night cream too, which I think I may buy as I do like this cream.

Thankyou for reading!
