Cleansing with Boots Botanics

As usual I got lured into buying my first Botanics products by little red 'Offer' label in Boots. I have tried quite a few products from this range since then. Overall I really like this affordable natural range. Products are formulated without parabens and packaging is often made using recycled materials.

Three products I've been especially enjoying are from cleansing category.

Gentle Cleansing Cream All Bright - I got this little guy when my skin was going through dry phase. It will go through it again now that Autumn is here and Winter is getting closer.
Creamy formula of this feels lovely on the skin and removes make up pretty well. To remove everything it needs two applications but it can be used as a good make up 'melting' stage before deep cleansing.

Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm - This stuff is very different to previous hot cloth cleansers I owned (Liz Earle and Superdrug). It's not a thick cream but it has a super thick, almost a paste type formula. It comes with one muslin cloth which is little bit thicker than the ones from Liz Earle but still gentle enough.
This cleanser works really well. It deeply cleanses and smooths the skin just like the packaging says. My skin always feels really nice after using it and my black heads seem to be reduced. It's a very efficient product. I've been using it for quite some time now and it's hardly got a little dent in it.

Microdermabrasion Polish - I would say that this basically is a face scrub. But a really nice one. It's got loads of tiny tiny particles that very gently but effectively remove dead skin. This is an extra step in a cleansing routine and I wouldn't use it more than twice a week. I'm not sure about the whole radiant youth effect but it definitely cleanses very well and makes my skin looks very clean and fresh.

Any fans of Batanics out there? I would love to hear your recommendations :)

  1. What does the hot cloth cleansing balm smell like? Some of them can be a bit funky which makes me not want to try it!

    1. Hmm not sure if you'd like it. It smells kinda herbaly. Not very strong thou.
